[Book Review] Edge Of Never by J.A. Redmerski

The Edge of Never (The Edge of Never, #1)Edge Of Never 

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 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?

1 and a quarter of disappointing and completely boring stars...

I don’t know why I keep getting into the hype… I guess I’m just a sucker for following popular Goodreaders and obsessing over pretty covers *sigh*

Beginning of the story really drew me in. I mean come on – Natalie totally sounded like the obnoxious best friend everyone always wants to have and what’s there better to do then go out to a club and rebel?

But then… and are you ready for it? - DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA!! *gag*

Natalie flips out, Cam looses her head and gets on a bus to live the life of a peace-making hippy. And that’s where it gets boring.. I mean yeah, it was kind of cute how her and Andrew met but COME ON!!! Can’t you get more cliché then a hot guy/hot girl being mean to each other and then falling in love? Thought so.

Okay okay, I promise – one more thing. During their sex scene she says: “Then he touched my pelvic bone”… I’m sorry but if somebody says pelvic bone during sex, you just cannot take that seriously! I literally laughed my booty off.

Well hope this little rant was entertaining… Welcome to 2014!
