More About the Author

J.A. (Jessica Ann) Redmerski is a New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling author and award-winner who juggles several different genres. She began self-publishing in 2012, and later with the success of THE EDGE OF NEVER, signed on with Grand Central Publishing/Forever Romance. She has since signed three more deals with GC/Forever for titles THE EDGE OF ALWAYS, SONG OF THE FIREFLIES and THE MOMENT OF LETTING GO. Her works have so far been translated into twenty different languages. THE EDGE OF NEVER made it to #2 on the New York Times bestseller eBook list, and remained on the #1 spot on Amazon for two straight weeks. THE EDGE OF ALWAYS also made the New York Times bestseller list.

Jessica is a hybrid author who, in addition to working with a traditional publisher, also continues to self-publish. The Portuguese rights to her popular crime and suspense series, In the Company of Killers, have already been picked up by one of Brazil's largest publishers. KILLING SARAI, REVIVING IZABEL, THE SWAN & THE JACKAL and SEEDS OF INIQUITY are the first four books in the series, and will not be the last.

Jessica is a lover of film, television and books that push boundaries. She's a sucker for long, sweeping, epic love stories. And she binge-watches television series'. Things on Jessica's wish-list are to conquer her long list of ridiculous fears, find a shirt that she actually likes, and travel the world with a backpack and a partner-in-crime.

Customer Reviews

Very well written....great characters, excellent story.
Lucinda Byrd
And you will be thankful for the slow start because about half way through the book it really picks up and you ride a roller coaster of emotions to the very end.
J.A. Redmerski is so amazing, I can't wait to read more books written by her.

This is, hands down, one of the best books I've read this year! Not just because of how original, emotional and brilliant the story is, and not because I'm a huge sucker for road-trip/traveling stories, but it's written in exactly the way I like it and I am just blown away by it.
Actually, I'm writing this on zero sleep because I got the "one more chapter" disease reading it - I really just wanted to read the first chapter while getting ready to go to bed to see if I'd like it...and see how that turned out!

Andrew is the perfect hero! I have never said this before, and probably never will again, but yeah, he really was perfect. He is a genuinely nice guy with just the right amount of cockiness, but there are just so many more layers than that to his character. You seriously can't help but fall in love with him and everything about him!

I loved Cam, too. She is strong but fragile at the same time, and honestly, I admired her bravery to just get away from everything and leave. I love it that she breaks all her rules and doesn't fight herself breaking them.

And I loved their banter and camaraderie, the way they were teasing each other (the pool playing scene? brilliant.) the chemistry between Cam and Andrew was just...perfect. Somehow their relationship progressed in very realistic way and I really really liked that.

So many feelings about this.
You don't see the twist coming at all, at least not one like that. I mean, I guessed there was something going on, but it kind of all comes crashing down when you least expect it with a BAM! and it's a lot to take in.
The last two chapters made me gasp and cry in turns.

I mean, just wow.

This book wasn't terrible by any means, but I don't understand all the OMG GLOWING 5STAR THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER reviews.

The characters were, for the most part, likable and well written. I like how they both had fleshed out back stories and most of their stories were not dumped on us via weird monologues, but instead was slowly revealed over time.

I had some issues with the book though. At first, I really liked how Camryn was independent and interesting, but she ended up being a complete wuss. I also don't like how the author constantly had every male character (except the few good guys) turn in to a wannabe rapist. I hate that.

First, Camryn is at a club with her best friend. She's on the roof of the club chatting with a guy and her best friend's boyfriend shows up, beats the crap out of the guy, then tries to force himself on Camryn. Ok, he was a total jerk and I get that. No problem.

Later on, Camryn is on the bus and she's chatting with Andrew. There's another guy on the bus who later tries to rape Camryn in the bathroom and she has to be saved by Andrew.

Okay, fine.

But then Andrew goes into this macho man mode that totally put me off. He tells Camryn that she can no longer travel by bus, he will not allow it. She MUST either take a plane home or go with him. She agrees. WTH? She barely knows this guy and she's letting him tell her what to do?

Fortunately, Andrew acts decently throughout the majority of the book so I didn't flip out too much by his "I'm the man, you will do as I say" behavior. But later on, he and Camryn have this weird conversation where he tells her that he won't have sex with her because he can't do that unless she agrees that he will own her.

Say what??

When I first started this I thought it was a little slow. BUT, as I continued to read, I learned that the beginning part was so important and any thoughts of being slow were tossed out. The reader learns how depressed and unhappy Camryn is in her current everyday boring life. You get to feel her pain and want nothing more for her to take this journey of leaving all behind in hopes to finding what is missing.

The writing and development of Camryn makes her one of the most realistic fictional characters I have read. Some people only wish they had the courage to wake up one day realizing there is more to life and pack a bag to leave. To just go anywhere. To get away from it all. Camryn does just this and takes the reader a long for the bus ride. She is so easy to connect with. She is so real.

Andrew is dealing with his own losses, and he can't seem to stay away from Cam. They eventually becomes joined at the hip when he decides to join her on her journey. Together they try to overcome the ghosts that are still holding on.

WARNING: The book WILL bring tears.

Now, before I start getting bumbarded with comments like, "Whaaaat?! Are you crazy?! EVERYONE loves this book!" let me just say that I didn't HATE The Edge of Never...I simply wasn't swept away as it seems the majority of readers were. It wouldn't be the first time where I felt like I was swimming against traffic in the book world, haha.

Usually I give a bit of a summary of the book prior to my review but I'm not going to say much more than the fact that Camryn took an improptue bus ride after a series of life events lead her to seak answers and an outcome she's not all too certain she'll even find. From's hard to say much more than "she met a boy (Andrew)". I'm keeping my summary vague because when I started this book I had no clue what it was about or what to expect. I enjoy reading books in this way sometimes because it makes the reading experience that much more interesting and kind of thrilling.

For this book, however, I did end up thinking, what the hell must the blurb have been like because I'm feeling kind of like there's a lot going on here I probably wouldn't have expected even if I HAD read the blurb prior.

For me, this book can be broken up basically into three parts. Story one. Story two. And story three. Yes, the three stories were tied together throughout but they were kept pretty separate in general.

First let me just say that this book gets VERY EXPLICIT. If you read the blurb you'll get kind of an idea of the sexual nature but only if you REALLY read into it. But I'll get to that...

In the first part of the story you learn that Camryn lost a love she thought was perfect, a young love that was so pure she felt as if she lost herself when she lost her love. This story is the one I was really enjoying.
