THE EDGE OF NEVER
Twenty-year-old Camryn Bennett thought she knew exactly where her life was going. But after a wild night at the hottest club in downtown Raleigh, North Carolina, she shocks everyone-including herself-when she decides to leave the only life she's ever known and set out on her own. Grabbing her purse and her cell phone, Camryn boards a Greyhound bus ready to find herself. Instead, she finds Andrew Parrish.
Sexy and exciting, Andrew lives life like there is no tomorrow. He persuades Camryn to do things she never thought she would and shows her how to give in to her deepest, most forbidden desires. Soon he becomes the center of her daring new life, pulling love and lust and emotion out of her in ways she never imagined possible. But there is more to Andrew than Camryn realizes. Will his secret push them inseparably together-or destroy them forever?

I was quickly drawn into Camryn's world, and didn't want to look away from what she was going to do next.
What sets this apart from other New Adult books is that Camryn's heartache is from a boyfriend that died in a car accident. Although I wish we'd have gone into more detail with this at the beginning to clearly get her frame of mind and reference to why she is not looking for a relationship.
Her friendship and the twist that took with Natalie I did not like, but I understood, I think why it happened. I was trying to figure out how I wanted this to be fixed, but decided to just read the story and figure out how J.A. would handle it. I also didn't like how Cam compared herself to Natalie, like at times she thought she was better than her, or that thinking about sex didn't matter only thinking of lofty things did.
But minorish details. Because I didn't want to put it down, I got a taste of the love interest and the way that he hinted he wanted more and the way that he treated Cam Their adventures are so captivating and I loved learning and guessing what has Andrew so withheld but totally didn't see it coming until right at the end.
I loved their interactions and banter. And oh were there some steamy scenes in this one. They are like they were made for each other, their perfect match and balance. I also liked that they both learned to let go and discover who they really are with the other's help.
Speaking of the end, it fooled me, broke my heart and repaired it all at the same time. It was perfect in that bittersweet way, and I can't wait for more in this world.
My question to you, my lovely readers:
Have you ever been on a trip on a bus?
