Review: The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski

The Edge of Always (The Edge of Never, #2)The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
He was taking the long road. She was taking the road to nowhere. It just so happened that they led to the same place…

When everything falls apart, love remains . . .


Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged—and a wedding isn’t the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can’t wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew – a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to—until tragedy blindsides them.

Andrew doesn’t understand how this could happen to them. He’s trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won’t do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride…

Characters: Why aren't you real, Andrew Parrish? Again, he is always looking after Camryn, always loving her despite some poor decisions she makes.  His attitude is constantly positive, even when times are bleak.  He may be hurting, but he doesn't show it.  I hate to be mean, but Camryn annoyed me during the first half.  She hides too many problems from the person she should trust the most, and frankly I thought she was stupid for trusting a complete stranger in The Edge of Never.  She loosens up halfway into the book, so that's good.  I still love the secondary character and brother to Andrew, Asher.  He and Andrew are so cute with their banter.  I wish J. A. Redmerski would write his story.

Plot: I started reading and began to think that this was one of these stories that should have ended as a stand alone.  The beginning of this book was absolutely depressing, and I was wishing that J. A. Rednerski had left us with Camryn and Andrew happy.  Then, reading on, it seemed like a repeat in plot, like there was a lack of ideas.  However, I must say that the ending made me happy even if the beginning and middle were ehh.

Would I recommend it to a friend? If you haven't read the first, you better (See that review here!!!!!!!)! Assuming you did, I think that you have to read the follow up just to get more Andrew!!!
