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 pursuing their love for music and living life to the fullest as they always swore to do. But when tragedy befalls them, their relationship is put to the ultimate test. As Camryn tries to numb her pain, Andrew makes a bold decision: To get their life back on track, they'll set out on another cross-country road trip. Together they find excitement, passion, adventure-and challenges they never could have anticipated.

I received this book for free from the publisher or author in exchange for an honest review.
This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

3 Stars

The Edge of Always started of strong, but after about 30 – 40% I kind of felt… lost. But I liked it nonetheless. Was it better than The Edge of Never? No, it was not. But it was still pretty good.

We meet Camryn and Andrew happier than ever. They’re engaged and Camryn’s pregnant. They have so much to look forward to until something happens. They try to move on, but it’s not working all that good for Camryn so Andrew decided to take her on a new journey, a new roadtrip to help her heal.

The writing was as good as ever. And I still adore Camryn and Andrew. My main problem, and I’ve read this in other reviews too, was the plot. The first 30% centers about the bad thing that happens to them and I was totally sucked in, but after that… the book lost direction and I felt lost. I mean… I didn’t know where the story was going and when I was about 70% in, it changed again and … it felt like a separate thing. I don’t know. I just feel so divided about this. I adored the first book and this is just… okay for me. I enjoyed reading it, but that’s mainly because of the charactes. I loved Camryn and Andrew. There’s no big conflict between them that almost tears them apart like in most of these books and I love that, but I missed direction in this book. It wasn’t what I expected at all.

In the end the book is just okay for me. I expected more out of it and sometimes that leaves you disappointed. Not that I’m disappointed in this one, I just wanted more. If you loved The Edge of Never, you should definitely give it a try. I really hope you love it much more then I did.
