**** 3 ½ Fast Paced Stars ****
ARC provided by Grand Central Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I’m a bit confused on how to word this review since I am currently sitting on fence questioning whether to tilt to the left (liked) or tilt to the right (disliked). I was so excited to be chosen to read an ARC of this book since I fell in love with Camryn and Andrew in “The Edge of Never”.
I think what has me leaning to the right is that the book skips so fast from days to weeks to months and then a mess of years. Plus there really isn’t any angst in the story and if there is…we only have to wait a couple of pages till breathing a sigh of relief. I didn’t cry like I did with the first book, I didn’t connect with the characters in this book but…….I did like the overall premise of the story.
The book starts with Camryn and Andrew living together in Texas and Andrew is recovered from his brain tumor. Because of certain tragic events that happen and that happened in the past, Camryn starts to recoil into her mind. This prompts her to try anything in order not to feel anymore. Andrew can feel the tension between her and the rest of her friends and family and decides enough is enough and he takes matters into his own hands.
This prompts another road trip for as long as it takes Camryn to want to live life to the fullest again. They have their ups and downs on this journey both psychically and mentally while they experience the wonderful love they shared through the first book.
I was happy to have read this book and have the story of Camryn and Andrew completed. My recommendation is, if you read the 1st book, try this one…every one has their own taste in books and yours may be completely different from mine!
