Five months ago, Camryn and Andrew, both dealing with personal hardships, met on a Greyhound bus. They fell in love and proved that when two people are meant to be together, fate will find a way to make it happen.

Now, in the highly anticipated sequel to The Edge of Never, Camryn and Andrew are pursuing their love for music and living life to the fullest as they always swore to do. But when tragedy befalls them, their relationship is put to the ultimate test. As Camryn tries to numb her pain, Andrew makes a bold decision: To get their life back on track, they'll set out on another cross-country road trip. Together they find excitement, passion, adventure-and challenges they never could have anticipated.


I have to say, I wasn't sure what to expect with this book.  I wanted more of Camryn and Andrew's story when I finished reading The Edge of Never.  I wasn't sure if I was going to get it, so when I saw that J.A. Redmerski was releasing The Edge of Always, I was thrilled.  However, once I read the synopsis for this book, I wasn't happy.  I sort of guessed what was going to happen, it was kind of obvious. With that being said, I still wanted to read the book.  I wanted to see where Camryn and Andrew's journey in life would take them.

In The Edge of Always you will see Camryn and Andrew struggle with a tragedy.  Andrew doesn't know what to do to help Camryn.  He walks on egg shells around her, not wanting to say something that may hurt her.  He handles her with kitten gloves, not wanting to physically hurt her.  Camryn is going through the motions, as if everything is fine, when obviously it is not.  Camryn just wants everyone to treat her normal.  She wants everything to go back to the way it was.  We can't change what happens in life, we can only more forward with out future.  

Camryn has a moment of weakness and Andrew is there to help her along the way. She is ashamed that she could have been so weak.  Andrew assures her that everyone has a moment of weakness at some point or another.  Everyone Camryn loved either left her or they died.  Her father, her brother, her grandmother.  She doesn't want to lose Andrew.  With Andrew's recent health scare, she feels as if at any given time, Andrew could be taken away from her.   

"You're the world to me." I whisper onto her lips. "I hope you never forget that." 

"I'll never forget," she whispers back and moves her hips very subtly on my lap.  Then she nudges my lips with her own and says just before kissing me, "But if I ever do, for whatever reason, I hope you'll always find a way to remind me,"

I study her mouth and then her cheeks resting underneath the pads of my thumbs.

"Always," I say and kiss her ravenously.
Andrew knows exactly what Camryn needs to help her heal; what they both need to heal.  He just needs Carmyn to trust him.  When the two of them set out on the road again, would it be the same as it was when they first met.  Were they just trying to re-live the memories they made a few short months ago?   

In The Edge of Always, you will fall in love with Andrew all over again. He is such a sweetheart.  He always puts Camryn first, he is so selfless. I love how open Andrew is with Camryn. His love for her is undeniable. 

I enjoyed reading how through the years, Camryn and Andrew stayed true to themselves. They followed their hearts and lived their dreams.  Andrew and Camryn never wanted to have what everyone else had. They didn't want their relationship to become complacent.  They wanted to travel the world, never to live in the same place for too long. 

If they were to have a family, would their dreams change?  Would they want to have a home, settle down, and raise a family?  Or would they still travel the world? 

I really enjoyed this series.  I love the relationship that Andrew and Camryn have together. Their love for each other is unconditional.  Andrew knows that he can not live a life without Camryn.  They are each other's soul mate.  They need each other, like they need air to breathe.  They calm each other, they are each other's light in the dark world that we sometimes live in. 

I look forward to seeing if J.A. Redmerski continues with this series.  The way she ends it, she definitely leaves it open to the possibility.
