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 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.

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

What book is Jessica most proud to have written? It's a question she gets asked quite often. The answer is, hands down, DIRTY EDEN. "DIRTY EDEN was an entirely organic experience for me, as was the story from beginning to end; nothing was planned, and I didn't know the end myself until I got there. As much as I enjoy writing love stories and crime novels, a big part of my heart really does lie in the satirical and strange. I just wish more people would read it."

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??

I finished this book in one sitting because I kept holding out for it to get better. It had so many good reviews that I felt surely at some point I'd be pulled into the story. A lot of the issues I had with the book are mentioned in other reviews: slow start, contrite plot, a terribly rushed epilogue with a stereotypical happy ending for characters claiming they wanted a more atypical free-spirited life and a submissive/dull lead female. Both the main characters spurn higher education and have no aspirations other than to travel around on savings and menial jobs. The traveling goal I guess is something but it comes across more like trying to escape reality rather than having a passion to see the world. It wouldn't have bothered me if they felt strongly passionate about something that would have explained having no life goals. Instead it feels more like they are unmotivated and I just found their future really bleak and depressing.

The other thing that really bothered me was Andrew. He behaves really selfishly. This is made worse by the fact that it happens towards the end of the book and Cam completely lets him off the hook. Andrew not only lies but considering he knows her past and how that past led to her depression (though the book never says she's depressed out right, it's pretty much implied with her not finding enjoyment in anything, running away, not able to genuinely smile/laugh, and feeling emotional detached from people) it seems cruel to potentially make her go through that specific experience again.

The other aspect of Andrew that I really didn't like and was surprised to not find in a lot of the other reviews was his violent behavior. I can get behind the whole alpha male protecting his damsel and/or taming the bad boy thing.
