Publisher's Summary

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 never give reviews but WOW.....

What did you love best about The Edge of Never?

I loved everything about this book! I had no idea what to expect when I started this book. I've been seeing great reviews on the Goodread website so I was excited to see it available thru Audible. The characters are beautiful, story is wonderful, and I fell head over heels fast with Andrew. He's hot, sexy, passionate, dominant, funny, strong, and yet he is sensitive. This book has some definitely steamy parts! I think this book was well written and well performed by Lauren Fortgang. This book hits you in all the right places! It has its sincere moments, funny moments, passionate moments and I was even a blubbering tissue blowing mess towards the end. This is by far is my new favorite book! It surpassed all of my other favorites straight to the top! BUY THIS BOOK!

Who was your favorite character and why?

I absolutely love Andrew Parrish. He is everything a girl could dream of for a perfect man!!

Which character – as performed by Lauren Fortgang – was your favorite?

She did a fabulous job with all of them! I will definitely look for more of her narrations!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes Yes Yes..in fact, this book was worth being sleep deproved the next day for work!

Any additional comments?

I hope Audible gets the sequel that is due to come out in November. I wish Audible would start a genre on New Adult Romance not just Contemporary Romance. There are some very popluar books out that I'm dying to hear rather than just read. I would spend more money on credits if more new adult romance books were released on Audible!

This one surprised me.

I am a 50 something listener and halfway through the first chapter was sure I'd made a poor selection. The life of twenty somethings for whom money is never a consideration couldn't be more foreign. But, I stuck it out and was glad. This story turned out to be about universal and ageless themes.Yes, it's told from a different perspective than mine and yes..there were a few scenes where our couple displayed really silly behavior that was inconsiderate of those around them. (note to twenty somethings...lewd conversations held publicly to shock "old people" are not witty, not charming, not amusing. Okay, a personal peeve of mine). Despite these distractions, I recommend this story to any adult listener. As another listener commented, this could be a good young adult read if one edited the sex scenes. (There aren't that many).

The narrator is a little slower than I normally like, but eventually I grew more comfortable and found her voice and cadence relaxing and almost meditative.

In summary, this book was written, I think, for a young audience, so a more mature reader may be irritated by some parts of the story, but the writer is quite good, so it makes it worth a few aggravating moments to experience the story. Oh yeah, I cried..no I sobbed...and I am NOT a crier. Really, this writer is good.

Wow what a journey....

This book is like a roller coaster ride it plummets you down so fast and then just as fast whooshes to up into the clouds. I absolutely loved the first part of the book and the second half, well, for me, for a little while it becames immature but I think this is YA anyway. Then it just took my emotions and rung them out....I haven't listened to a book like this in a very long time. It is a LOVE STORY...that comes outta nowhere. Wonderfully narrated. Great production. This one is a grabber..I know I won't forget this book.

Too Slow-Disappointed

I bought this after seeing all of the good reviews, but I was disappointed. It's a long book, and not much happens until the end. It's very drawn out and too slow for my tastes - it didn't hold my interest.

One of the Best Romances Ever

Where does The Edge of Never rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's in my top 5 all-time favorites. I listened to twice in a row.

What did you like best about this story?

The chemistry, between the two characters is electric. The dialogue is fantastic. You can visualize these two incredible people falling in love.

What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

Great voice characterization. She performs Andrew's voice flawlessly.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Camryn took a road trip to find herself but what she found was her soul mate.

Any additional comments?

This book grabbed me from the first few words. I was sad when it ended, and that's why I listened to it all over again.

I couldn't finish it

What would have made The Edge of Never better?

Oh my, sorry to give a bad review but -- sooooooooooo boring. One of the main characters is a man and the other a woman. The chapters flip back and forth between characters but the narrator sounds the same in both, so I kept forgetting which was which. Very long and drawn out. No real "action".

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The beginning was OK middle was so long and boring that I didn't finish it.

Just Wow!!!!

Best listen in a long time. Read the reviews online and decided to use my credit. Boy was it worth it! I was pulled in from the beginning and by the end I was crying. Bring the tissues.

Reminds me of "The Notebook"

I found this story to be a charming classic love story. The emotion and passion reminds me of Nicholas Sparks book The Notebook. The two main characters go through a journey of discovery together. Sometimes everyone needs to break away from the ordinary to discover the extraordinary. The love scenes are detailed but their are not many. Some one else claimed that this story is similar to "50 Shades of Gray" and "The Crossfire Series" but I disagree. The story is not as sexual or filled with angst but instead classic passionate love story. The narrator did a wonderful job and I was very happy with this book!

Loved Loved Loved

This is the first book from this author I've read (listened to) and I am completely in love with this book. I loved every minute of the book and I was hooked the entire book. I will be recommending this book to my friends and adding this author to my favorite author list.

One of my favorite books ever...

What made the experience of listening to The Edge of Never the most enjoyable?

All of it...Andrew and Camryn have a completely unique story and I loved every second of it.

What other book might you compare The Edge of Never to and why?

I can't compare...it's a great angsty New Adult romance.

What about Lauren Fortgang’s performance did you like?

She doesn't over do Andrew's voice, which I appreciate it - it's very natural. She's also got a great voice for Camryn.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Two lost souls who find their way together...

Any additional comments?

Andrew is on of my top book boyfriends ever and this story just hits me in all the right places - the emotions, the characters, the writing - every part of it is awesome.
