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 Raleigh, 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?

Due to sexual content and language, this book is recommended for 17+ – Adult Contemporary Women’s – New Adult Fiction

(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

I don’t think I could ever even begin to describe my love for this book. I’ve gone round and round with thinking about what exactly I wanted to tell readers. And I think I’ve come pretty close with this: Read it. Love it. Cherish it. Because this book will rip you open, crawl inside you, and you will love every moment even the tearful ones.

In The Edge of Never we meet Camryn Bennett, a twenty year old who is facing issues with who she is, and the feeling of being lost. So, in a moment of abrupt decisions she boards a bus and lets her adventure begin. As she travels across the United States she’s faced with coming to terms with her own personal demons, and the fact that she doesn’t want the life of waking up every day, going to the same job, and doing the same things. Camryn simply amazes me. I loved her so much, really cheered her on, she actually got it.

Andrew Parrish. Oh my Andrew Parrish. He is everything a reader could ever want. With a funny sense of humor, amazing heart, and of course he plays guitar and sings (seriously doesn’t get better than that)!  He’s mysterious and insanely likeable. The things he said really touched my heart.
There’s a reason everyone is raving about this book. It will pull you in, and won’t let you go. J. A. Redmerski absolutely rocked it! This is a book about love, life, friendship, and the reason of being. It is a ride you wish would never end, the answers you didn’t know to the questions you didn’t know you were seeking.

“And it was magical and wonderful and awesome and nothing will ever compare to it. Ever.”

About the Author
Author of THE DARKWOODS TRILOGY and DIRTY EDEN, mother, werewolf & zombie fanatic, book addict and a happy hermit obsessed with the Universe. Oh, and AMC’s “The Walking Dead”.
Addictions: Starbucks every morning, trolling Barnes & Noble’s shelves once a week, detesting winter, shopping flea markets and preparing for the collapse of society as we know it. Do I own a tin foil hat? Maybe. :-)
I was born in Arkansas and have lived here most of my life, except the couple of times when I lived in Pennsylvania. I started my first novel at the age of thirteen and have been writing something ever since. Generally, I love characters in life and on paper. I pay attention to people, especially those whose personalities make them different from the rest of us: the drug addict roaming the Laundromat that talks to himself, the young, inattentive mother in the park with the meanest kid on the playground – (the entire cast of ‘Swamp People’) – characters fascinate me and I hope that it shows in my literary work.
