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

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…

Review: I read The Edge of Never back in May, and I absolutely fell in love with Camryn and Andrew's story. So you could say I was dying to get my hands on The Edge of Always for the chance to read even more about one of my favorite fiction couples. There was so much emotion from the first book, that I knew I was in for yet another great adventure with this one. 

Camryn still can't believe how much her life has changed in the past five months. Thanks to the fated chance of meeting on a Greyhound bus, Camryn is now engaged to Andrew and can't wait to spend the rest of her life with such an amazing man, traveling the world and just living life. But when tragedy strikes Camryn's life yet again, she starts to close herself off and Andrew doesn't know how to get the Camryn he loves back. Andrew hopes that taking Camryn on another life changing adventure will remind her of the passion and love of their relationship, bringing back the passionate Camryn he knows and loves. 

Oh boy, talk about emotions. Seriously, I was flipping out during every emotional part in the first book, and all of those emotions come flooding back in this one. How can so much happen to one girl? Well, at least she has Andrew by her side, because boy is he perfect. How does she find such an amazing guy on a bus? I've been on plenty of buses and that has definitely not happened to me....where are all of the Andrews in the world hiding?? Not only was the emotion there, but we get to see the story from alternating chapters from Andrew's point of view and Camryn's point of view, just like in the first book. I loved how the author let us into both minds, because we really get to know both of them and the emotions are that much more present. 

The thing I love most about Andrew is definitely his love for Camryn. That guy is seriously in love with her, and will do anything for her through both good and bad times. Yeah, there are times when Camryn crawls into her shell when things get hard again, and there are times when she messes up with her life. But he's always there for her, reminding her how amazing she really is. *sigh* Andrew is just too cute and too perfect. 

So much happens in this book, that I have to remind myself that it all happened within this one novel. Seriously, there's tragedy, struggles, passion, love, and so many other heart-wrenching emotions and occurrences. How can one couple deal with all of that? Because they have each other, and couldn't have found a more perfect soul mate. 

That ending was absolutely perfect, and I can't get over the fact that Andrew and Camryn are truly meant to be. While it's definitely a bumpy road, they build a life together that is just so gosh darn lovable. And we get more traveling in this one, which is a main reason why I fell in love with the first book. EVERYONE needs to read this series, and pick up this new release as soon as they can! I hope you all will love it as much as I did.
