When everything falls apart, love remains . . .


Camryn Bennett has never been happier. Five months after meeting on a Greyhound bus, she and her soul mate Andrew Parrish are engaged-and a wedding isn't the only special event in their future. Nervous but excited, Camryn can't wait to begin the rest of her life with Andrew, a man she knows in her heart will love her always. They have so much to look forward to-until tragedy blindsides them.

Andrew doesn't understand how this could happen to them. He's trying to move on, and thought Camryn was doing the same. But when Andrew discovers Camryn is secretly harboring a mountain of pain and attempting to numb it in damaging ways, there is nothing he won't do to bring her back to life. Determined to prove that their love can survive anything, Andrew decides to take Camryn on a new journey filled with hope and passion. If only he can convince her to come along for the ride...

The Edge of Always 4.1 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 163 reviews.

The first book was fantastic, this second one was flat and boring. It is a 300-page epilogue that tries to stretch the original story without really adding anything consequential. I loved the characters in the first book, but in this one I got tired of them. I was hoping for them to finally grow up, but everything they did was try to repeat what they had done in the first book. There was nothing really exciting to keep me interested. I ended up skimming through paragraphs at a time and I could not wait for it to finally end. The first book is a stand alone, and I would have been better off not wasting my time with this one.

No plot. Forced myself to finish it because I loved the first book. I'm confused by the positive reviews because I found it boring and disappointing.

 I fell in love with Andrew and Camryn and their story in The Edge of Never and have been anxiously awaiting the release of The Edge of Always, which picks up shortly after The Edge of Never ends.  Everything seems to be going well.  Andrew and Camryn have made it through a really, really tough time after Camryn almost lost Andrew, and they are planning a trip back to Raleigh to see her mom, considering possibly moving there for a while.  After arriving in Raleigh a series of events unfold and Camryn sustains another devastating loss, one that almost destroys her.  She has endured so much grief and loss over the last few years and her coping mechanism has been to try to push it all down and forget it, burying the hurt and the pain.  Andrew is hurting to, but he is more concerned about Camryn.  The girl he managed to uncover on that road trip 5 months prior is slowly disappearing inside herself once again.  He's been kind of walking on eggshells around her, a fact that bothers Camryn even more, even though she doesn't say it.  That combined with the concern of her best friend Natalie, and her mom, drives Camryn to do something she never thought she would, which eventually blows up in her face and causes Andrew to realize just how damaged Cam is from the series of tragic events that have occurred over the past 3 years.  With the help of Natalie and his brothers, Andrew devises a plan to help Camryn face and deal with her grief, with the goal of reviving the person who is the other half of his soul, as they go back to the place that they both feel most at home, on the road.   I really enjoyed The Edge of Always.  It is told from both Camryn and Andrew's POV, which I enjoyed also.  I have to say that Andrew Parrish is an amazing man and I am totally in love with him.  I don't think they make them any better than him, seriously.  He could be considered a modern day Prince Charming with a sexy alpha side hiding underneath all that hotness.  He and Camryn go through a lot in this book, but the one thing that impressed me so much was that their love for each other never failed.  It was solid, like a rock, and when life's circumstances threatened to crush them on more than one occasion their love was the one thing that never wavered.  Sure, they may have had a questionable moment or two, but inside they both knew what they had in each other, were secure in it, and knew that their's was a relationship that was meant to last for a lifetime, and even beyond.  I admire Redmerski for not throwing in a love triangle, cheating, or the like for dramatic effect in this novel.  The romance and passion between Andrew and Cam was like a blazing fire and continued to be so, despite any circumstance they faced, growing brighter over time instead of slowly burning out.  I loved being a part of their journey on that road trip called life, and being able to see the events that transpired in the process.  Though they may live in one place for a season, the place they feel most at home is when they are on an adventure, exploring the world has to offer them.  The Edge of Always was not  as intense as The Edge of Never and had kind of a different feel to it, but it was also very satisfying and sweet, and I especially enjoyed the way J.A. Redmerski brought closure to Andrew and Camryn's story with a wonderfully satisfying epilogue.

I absolutely loved the first book and after reading it I knew I had to read this one. One word: BORING! The beginning was good and got me into it but towards the middle and through the end was nothing but pointless information that just wasn't interesting to read. I only finished because I had such high hopes that it would intrigue me again but it didn't. The author definitely lacked in this second book.

Wow! The edge of never was my all time favorite book ( and I read about 4-5 books a week) but I now have two favorites! Camryn and Andrew are amazing. This book had me on edge so bad...I was laughing and wanting to cry. The emotions in their story are so real! Def reccomend this series!

I laughed and I cried...actually I sobbed when Andrew explained toward the end of the book why it was ok to name their little girl Lilly. If only every man was like Andrew the world would be a more loving place.

My Rating: 4.5 of 5 ¿¿ Life is certainly looking up from when Camryn Bennett first met Andrew Parrish. They had some really difficult times in the past five months, but so far everything was looking good, although they stopped travelling. Not quite sure where they were eventually going to end up, Camryn wants to be close to her mom and Nat and Andrew is happy wherever Camryn is.  Neither need much to live, and they are happy picking up work as they need it. But their sense of settled happiness is short lived, when yet another tragedy befalls them. Camryn seems off, avoiding to discuss or process their misfortune, trying to force life back into a pattern. Instead, she slowly seems to disappear from Andrews grasp and he is shocked when he realizes how deep her denial runs. The only thing he knows to do is to once again pull away all predictability and set out on a new journey. They have their love, and trust in each other and they will try to rediscover their passion for life and their determination to carve out their own unique path in life, without fear.  ***** A worthy sequel to THE EDGE OF NEVER!  Beautifully written, again with that unique perspective on life, this time as wanderlust and the need to settle are at odds. The concept of living in the moment is something that has come to Andrew as natural as breathing. For Camryn it has taken some adjustment, she isn't as emotionally 'free' as she appears to be. Camryn's coping mechanism has historically been avoidance, with as a result that she has some deep rooted unresolved grief that holds her hostage and prevents her from truly moving forward.  Andrew often understands Camryn better than she understands herself and he tries to find ways to help her come to terms with her past and current pain, without pushing her too hard. He has his own fears to deal with, but they seem to diminish next to the extent of Camryn's anxiety. Andrew is the ultimate facilitator and protector and carries wisdom well beyond his years. The story brings us all the way through to what would probably be their mid-life, where circumstances once again allow them to reinvent the content of their lives. The lessons are no less valuable in this book than they were in the first. Regardless of your life circumstances, you always have choices, you can always give create the life that you want. All you need is a creative, adaptable, hungry and open mind, and the possibilities are endless.  Amazing messages; pitting 'need' against 'want', valuing experiences over possessions, maximizing choices and minimizing obligations and filling needs instead of creating them.  ¿A rich, moving, sensual and liberating journey of love¿ **ARC courtesy of NetGalley and Forever in return for an honest review.**

I've been following this author since she first came out and this is the 3rd time I have read it. The love story and the travelling is what most people dream about! I really wish there was a third after 4 years!! :)

Yep...exactly what I expected. Except the epilogue, but I'll get to that. The Edge of Always by J.A. Redmerski is amazing. Once again, she covers all the emotions by inserting the different, alternating perspectives. I laughed and cried in vicious circles. I get it, life is rough, but this must have been a very difficult book to write. Now, the epilogue just left me wanting so much more. What happened in Peru? Why can't I go on the journeys too? Are you seriously leaving me at home when Lily goes to Africa? I will stomp my feet in a minute....

As someone who loved "The Edge of Never", I was really disappointed with this installment. It starts off strong and draws you in, but the rest of the book is a mess. It's as if the main goal of the author was just to fit in as much as possible and it just doesn't work. Less would have been a whole lot more.
