The Edge of Always  perfectly recaptured that special "feeling" from the first book, stayed true to the characters and told a beautiful story filled with romance, adventure and emotional depth. It also fully brought Andrew and Camryn's journey full circle giving a wonderful sense of closure to their story.

I have to admit that I was very nervous about reading this book because I felt a certain apprehension at reading the sequel to a book that really coul

3 Our Life, on the Road Stars

"Because this is our life. We met on the road; we grew up to know and to love each other on the road. It's where we were meant to be for however long and it's what we're going to do until it becomes clear that we were meant to do something else."


When we are kids we have dreams. Or seeing the world. Of singing in front of a crowd. Of finding the other half of our souls. Life has a way to fulfill your dreams and take them away unexpectedly. Only by believing and keep

The Edge of Never was one of the VERY first New Adult books I read. It helped kickstart my fascination with this genre and had one of the most unique, inspirational, and heartwarming storylines I’d ever read. After finishing the first book, I was in a warm, content, fuzzy place where I was satisfied to let go of these characters. That being said, though, another book about them is cool too!

That is, until the second book turned out to be a disappointment.

Camryn starts to change in little ways. Andrew knows he was to do something to bring her back to herself. He decides they need to go back to the start. Back on the road.

So, it only took like...forever to finally get through this. I love this couple, I really do. And I was hella excited when we were told there'd be a sequel. In fact, I was one of the many that hounded Jessica to write a sequel after I finished TEoN. Because we HAD to have more Andrew and Cam. I fell in love with Andrew, and I loved him in this book. But should've stopped there. The sequel really wasn't needed and I hate that I have to say that. It saddens me. But sometimes the seq

What worked

Kristen says:
One of the things I loved about this book is the amazing characterizations. J. A. Redmerski has a uncanny ability to write characters and dialogue that are so full of life and humanity that they seemingly jump off the pages.
I also loved the road trip. It was fun being on the road with Camryn and Andrew again.

Edging to a disappointing 3.5 stars

This will be a difficult review to write. I loved The Edge of Never, it was a six star read for me and a top on my list of favorites.

I have been waiting F.O.R.E.V.E.R for The Edge of Always and as much as it pains me to say this, I was left disappointed.

I need to first put this out there. There are a lot of five star reviews for The Edge of Always and I can understand that. It’s just a matter of taste and personal preference. The s

My Thoughts:

♫ It was great being back with one of my favorite couples, Andrew and Camryn, and even though I didn't think it was as good as the first book, it was still very enjoyable.

♫ Of course, what I thought might happen, happened and it certainly lead to some drama but I liked how Andrew and eventually Camryn handled things.

♫ I loved, loved, loved the road trip! I think that's one of my favorite things!


♫ But what in the heck happened in Florida? That was sooo crazy and seemed a little
4 Breathtaking stars!!


After a very bumpy path, Andrew and Camryn are finally together, with a baby on the way and completely happy.
They have all their lives ahead of them to make new plans and get to know the world.


But plans can change anytime and when tragedy knocks at their door, they must deal with the most difficult path they probably had to walk through.
And find out the place they want to belong in the world… when the world doesn’t seem like a good place to be anymore.

***Warning: This review contains huge spoilers for The Edge of Never***
In five months I found myself with him, fell in total, unconitional crazy love, truly learned how to live, met pactically his entire family and quickly felt like a prt of them, went through a life- and- death journey with Andrew, got pregnant and engaged. All in five months' time. And now here we are facing another hardship. And he's still with me every step of the way.

And Andrew is back!! Give me a moment here..

" we are facing another hardship."Yes, there's more devastating drama.....

Camryn needs to come to terms with EVERYTHING, including her greatest fear.

'The Edge of Always,' is about a deep, deep love.... Unbreakable, apart from one thing... And it's that which scares Camryn. Her worries are magnified because of everything that's happened to her in her troubled life.

I couldn't get enough of "The Edge Of Never" so had to read this one. Did I love it as much? No, it fell a bit short of my expectations, but "The Edge Of Never" was a very hard act to follow. Still this was a decent read, was about romance, my favorite genre, and kept me turning the pages ;)

He was taking the long road. She was taking the road to nowhere. It just so happened that they led to the same place…

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

"I'll never forget that... But if I ever do, for whatever reason, I hope you'll always find a way to remind me."



Beautiful love story. Simply amazing.

I don't think this book could have been written any better.

Andrew and Camryn's another spontaneous expedition... The Edge of Always exceeded my expectations. Once again, J.A. Redmerski made me fall in love with the characters that I fell

I liked this book for a few reasons. I despised it for even more .

“I guess sometimes the greatest memories are made in the most unlikely of places, further proof that spontaneity is more rewarding than a meticulously planned life.”
I still love Andrew but this book really didn't do for me what the first one did. I felt like there were alot of ideas and stories that got started in this book but then just got dropped. These seemed to be there for no reason and that kind of thing really turns me off

4 out of 5 drama filled stars

Truth be told, I was a little apprehensive about reading "THE EDGE OF ALWAYS”. "THE EDGE OF NEVER" was such a profound, emotionally driven tale, I wasn’t sure if continuing Andrew and Camryn’s story would hold the same level of excellence. In the end, I am delighted to see the road these two have travelled.

The story flowed quite nicely, alternating from each of their POV’s, but was a bit slow paced.

I’m a bit confused on how to word this review since I am currently sitting on fence questioning whether to tilt to the left (liked) or tilt to the right (disliked). I was so excited to be chosen to read an ARC of this book since I fell in love with Camryn and Andrew in “The Edge of Never”.

I think what has me leaning to the right is that the book skips so fast from days to weeks

This wasn't bad. Not really. But dare I say that this book is unnecessary? I mean, I finished The Edge of Never (which I LOVED), totally satisfied with the ending. Andrew's surgery was successful and they were happy. HEA. Yay!

I was satisfied with it. Totally. No complaints.

And then we have this book, and I'm sorry to say, I was underwhelmed. After the reading the epicness that was The Edge of Never, its follow up trudged and meandered along until it was over.

This book didn't impress me as much as the first one. Especially the first 146 pages which were really annoying. But again, the ending was so perfect... so peaceful. It totally changed my perspective on the book.
I was so sad when I read about Lily... but she came to life into another Lily. (This might sound crazy, but if you read the book, you'll understand).
Anyway, this series was so addictive. I can't believe I read both books in one day... But once I started to read about Andrew

I was really, really looking forward to this book. The Edge of Never was one of my favorites of 2013 and it will remain so. However, when I recommend it, I will recommend it as a standalone. I'm not going to get into what didn't work. At first I thought it was the weird feel the story took in the beginning but in the end it felt weird all together. I really feel like I should give it 2 stars but there were glimpses of the same characters I so fell in love with in the first book I decided to bump ...more

I didn't enjoy it as much as TEON but I still love Andrew and Cam's story. I love their love of life and attitude towards being themselves and not conforming to others expectations. This book was very philosophical just like the first and makes you think and question so much about yourself.

It was a 3.5 star read for me at best. It was just too slow and too long for me this time around. I don't know maybe it would have been better to not even continue it. I didn't feel like anything happened that I could not have imagined would have been their story and yeah.... for the most part it was just a big ol' snooze fest...

OH. MY. GOD! ANDREW PARRISH = Perfect. Man. *sigh*

Andrew & Camryn takes us once again to another journey of their lives into a whole new level! After experiencing loss and “moment of weakness”, Andrew will take another risk to get Camryn back to where they belong: On the road.
