Escaping the Edge MUST be read before Finding the Light.

Adventure. Chaos. Love. Despair.

Life can change in an instant. From a beautiful oblivion to utter destruction. I never saw it coming. I never believed this could happen. Reality brought us back down to the ground, ripping away a peace we never believed was possible. Our lives are far too complicated for us to live in

Finding the Light by H.M. Sholander is the second and final book in the Edge Series. After reading Escaping the Edge, I could not wait to find out what happened to Ryan and Avery because their story was so real, gritty, sad and heartwarming all at the same time. I needed to know if they made it as a couple, I needed to know if Avery continued with her recovery, I yearned to know if Ryan's dad finally got the help he so desperately needed and that Ryan wanted him to get and finally I wanted to kn ...more

"Kissing Avery is like having every dream come true. Together, we’re a force to be reckoned with. Together, we’re unstoppable."


It was nice reading more about Ryan and Avery's story. I was sad when Escaping the Edge ended because their relationship was just getting started, and I really wanted to see how their story ended. It's crazy how different the roles between both characters were this time around. In book one, Ryan was there for Avery when she was struggling with her addiction and getting

“This…him…. Everything is the way it is meant to be, and our adventure is only beginning. No, this isn’t the end…. not by a long shot. It’s the start of a life we never knew we could have. Love. Purpose. Happiness. Friendship. Adventure. And we have it all together.” ~Avery
First and foremost, read Escaping the Edge first! This book will be so much better if you read them in order I promise! Both are absolutely amazin

Finding the Light picked up where Escaping the Edge ended with Avery 6 months into sobriety and Ryan still struggling to help his father. Both characters decided the best hope they had for each other was to breathe in the life they had and explore the possibilities.
Finding the Light was about Ryan and Avery starting their lives together and burying the guilt. Together they journeyed through life and explored new places. Avery was faced with many forms of temptations testing her resolve during h

Finding the Light: (Edge, Book 2) by H.M. Sholander is the second story in the Edge series. This is not a stand alone story as you should read Escaping the Edge, Book 1 as it is a continuation of Avery and Ryan's story. I for one was excited to read this story to find out what happened to them. The author has created characters that you will be able to relate to and connect too. You will love how they connect to each other and how they get through their struggles. They will take you on a journey ...more

Finding the Light is the beautiful second book in the Edge series by H.M. Sholander. I would definitely recommend reading the first book in the series before this one. After reading book 1 and totally falling in love with Avery and Ryan I couldn’t wait to start the second book and it lived up to everything I thought it would be! It was still beautifully written and I still found myself emotionally connected to the characters. The story took on a different turn this time as we see th

Finding the Light is NOT a standalone. Please read Escaping the Edge before reading this one.
This story follows Avery and Ryan further along in her recovery. This story focuses more on Ryan and the obstacles from his past that he has to overcome/deal with before he can move forward in life.
Avery’s love for Ryan is strong and she is willing to stick with him through some pretty tough situations he has to face. Ryan has been trying to clean up

Ryan at first is not excited abo9ut the idea since they both have jobs, but as Avery points out neither of them like the jobs that they are doing. Ryan knows once she looks at him with them puppy eyes he has lost.

This is the second book in the series and it is the conclusion of Ryan and Avery’s story. I was so excited to start and read this book. Ryan and Avery had been through so much since they first met and they were overcoming those obstacles. They both decide to get away from everything and just throw some names of places they want to visit into a hat and just go and be free from everything. When they decide that they a

Finding the Light is the second book in H.M Sholander’s Edge series and it is an amazing conclusion of Avery and Ryan’s story. This book is full of love, loss, lies, redemptions, forgiveness and moving on.
Ryan has always taken care of his dad and brother. No matter how many times he says that he is giving up on his dad, he never has nor will he. Avery convinces Ryan to take an adventure, destination unknown, just the two of them to take a break from all the craziness that is their l

Book 2 in the Edge series
H.M. Sholander

This was a continuation from Escaping the Edge. This book, unlike the first has 2 POV’s. Both Avery and Ryan’s mind frames are represented during the story. I don’t feel like this would be a standalone, in my opinion you need to read Escaping the Edge and then move to this one. Since the first book deals with addiction, this book starts where the last one ended. I would note if you have triggers to alcohol and drug abuse or viole

Finding the Light is book two in the Edge series by H.M. Sholander. We ended book one with Ryan still cleaning up after his father and Avery six months into her recovery journey. Neither situation is easy but together they can manage it.

Book two revolves more around Ryan and his story. We learn his fears and his concerns with his father. How he feels like this is his responsibility even though children shouldn't have to take care of their family this way. Ryan tries to lead a life of spontaneity

Finding the Light is one of the most aptly named books I have had the pleasure of reading in a long time. This is the follow up to Escaping the Edge and it is just as amazing. This also deals with some very serious subject matter but it is so well done that instead of being overwhelmed with the seriousness of the story I was swept up in the beauty that can be found in the dark.

This follows Avery and Ryan as they learn how to be themselves but better together. I found their relationship to be en

Finding the Light by HM Scholander is the second and final book in Scholander’s Edge series. It is not a stand alone novel, so as much as I enjoyed this book, do not read it until you've read the first book. In this book, we get to rejoin Avery and Ryan, a few months after the ending of Escaping the Edge, on their journey to find happy, fulfilling and healthy lives and relationships. Avery is finally feeling finding peace with losing Grayson, and in control of her addiction. However, Ryan is nea ...more

Now, it is her turn. Ryan is torn between taking care of his father, keeping his brother away from it all, and living his own life. The two decide to go on an adventure – one that gets cut short bec

This novel is told in alternating first person POV by the two main characters: Avery and Ryan.

The conclusion to Escaping The Edge starts out with main characters Avery and Ryan at a crossroads in their life. It was nice to get to read about the “happy ever after” for Avery and Ryan.  Although they find out it's not always an easy path getting to happily ever after.  They are starting a new relationship and Avery is a newly recovered alcoholic.   A spontaneous road trip to a randomly picked spot in the United States sounds like the easiest and most exciting idea. Along the way and during ...more

Finding the Light is the second book in the Edge series. It is not a stand alone book. I would highly recommend you read Escaping the Edge first. This book is a continuation of Avery and Ryan’s story. In the first book Ms Sholander portrayed the trials and tribulations of addiction and it continues in this book on how hard it is to stay sober.

Avery can get Ryan to do just about anything she wants because he loves her and want her only to

I was really excited to read this book. H.M. Sholander really impressed me with her debut novel Escaping the Edge so I couldn't wait to continue Avery and Ryan's story. However, this continuation fell very short for me.

The story felt so incredibly forced. The characters still felt like strangers, one improvement I was really hoping for in this book. But the one thing that bothered me more than the characters or the forced plot what the ineffective use of 2nd person. It got to the point in which

Finding the Light is book 2 in the Edge series. This picks up basically where the first ended so go read it! I feel this book was forced in parts, I really wanted to connect again with Avery and Ryan but I never really did. The dual POVs worked well for me because where the connection seemed to stop for them, I was able to get in each of their heads. They didn't really know each other and that kind of surprised me, we started to finally find stuff out at the end

Why are all the books I've been reading lately so heavy?? I need a mental break after this one. It was SUCH an amazing read, but there are some very heavy topics discussed throughout. It's nice to read a book once in awhile that talks about the serious things in life. I really connected with Ryan because of his role as caretaker for an addict. It was hard to read what he went through, but slightly therapeutic, as well. <3 A+++++

This is the second and final book of the “Edge” series. I was looking forward to reading this story, as at the end of “Escaping the Edge”, Ryan and Avery’s relationship was just beginning to develop. I loved how these two were there for each other no matter what, and helped each other overcome obstacles in their path.
This is a perfect conclusion to a good series, and I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

Finding the Light by HM Sholander is book 2 in the series.

We are taken back into the world of Avery and Ryan. This book focuses on Ryan more than Avery but since the two are inseparable they are both throughout. We learn more about Ryan's upbringing and we meet new characters and some old ones. This isn't a quick read but we get the feelings of joy, sadness, anger, and everything in between. Ryan is thrust into a parenting role much sooner than he should be and we see the turmoil he keeps insid
