Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett had always been one to think out-of-the-box, who knew she wanted something more in life than following the same repetitive patterns and growing old with the same repetitive life story. And she thought that her life was going in the right direction until everything fell apart.
Determined not to dwell on the negative and push forward, Camryn is set to move in with her best friend and plans to start a new job. But after an unexpected night at the hottest club in downtown North Carolina, she makes the ultimate decision to leave the only life she’s ever known, far behind.
With a purse, a cell phone and a small bag with a few necessities, Camryn, with absolutely no direction or purpose boards a Greyhound bus alone and sets out to find herself. What she finds is a guy named Andrew Parrish, someone not so very different from her and who harbors his own dark secrets. But Camryn swore never to let down her walls again. And she vowed never to fall in love.
But with Andrew, Camryn finds herself doing a lot of things she never thought she’d do. He shows her what it’s really like to live out-of-the-box and to give in to her deepest, darkest desires. On their sporadic road-trip he becomes the center of her exciting and daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But will Andrew’s dark secret push them inseparably together, or tear them completely apart?

Review – 5 stars
I’m so emotional right now, I can’t even… I don’t even… WOW.
‘The Edge of Never’ is just completely and utterly amazing, incredible, remarkable, outstanding, extraordinary, wonderful… I could go on forever. I first picked up this book because of all the positive reviews and thank god for these reviews and websites that allow me to discover these amazing books!! This book is an emotional rollercoaster that keeps you strapped in until the very end.
The love story between Camryn and Andrew is one of my favourites. Andrew Parrish is a sexy as hell man who may look like a dangerous bad boy but really has the truest and sweetest heart. He’s fun, witty and teaches Camryn how to finally let go and live. Camryn is a free spirit at heart who has gone through a lot of shit in a few short weeks and just needs to escape. When these two meet there is a lot of physical attraction but no insta-love cheesiness, thank god! Their relationship develops through actual conversation and getting to know each other. I love the way they met, I love their shared need to escape the normality of life and I love the way the help each other work through the hard times on their spontaneous adventure.
And the last three chapters and that sweet letter!! The way this book moves you from absolutely heartbroken and sobbing on the floor crying “WHY!?!?” to dancing around the room in joy in about 10 seconds is phenomenal.
I dare you not to love this book!!
