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?

If you’d ask me what one of my fave book of 2013 (or all time classics, actually) would be, this one would be the first I’d mention.

The Edge of Never is the perfect combination of a book that makes you laugh, cry and dream… Camryn Bennet has had a tough year and decides to board a Greyhound bus alone and to a random location. On this bus he meets Andrew Parrish, who is headed to visit his father, who is dying from a brain tumor. The two of them team up on a spontaneous road trip through the US. It’s actually an emotional and musical trip too.

I simply loved the writing style with alternating points of view and heavy in emotions which give you the feeling that this is real and happening as you read. And the most thrilling and packing thing about The Edge of Never has got to be the suspense: Camryn and Andrew have their fair share of secrets they have yet to share, and this book is not short of unexpected situations.

It touched me personally, made me cry (I do say this quite often lately but this one is the number 1 floodgate breaker), and I simply loved the world of Camryn and Andrew, as well as the playlist of their adventure together.
