"I loved every last word! Beautiful, heartfelt, consuming--I couldn't put it down. There's pure magic in J. A. Redmerski's pen." --- KATY EVANS, New York Times bestselling author of the REAL series 

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Edge of Never and The Edge of Always

Brayelle Bates has always been a force of nature. Even as a child, Bray's wild and carefree spirit intimidated everyone around her. The only person who's ever truly understood her is her best friend, Elias Kline. Though every fiber of her being wants to stay with Elias forever, Bray can't bear the thought of him discovering her agonizing history. She's done everything she can to keep him at arm's length, including moving away. But their undying bond was too strong a pull to deny, and Bray couldn't survive without him. Now she's back home with Elias, and things have never felt more right--until one night changes everything. 

Elias vowed never to be separated from Bray again. So when she decides to flee in a desperate attempt to escape her fate, Elias knows he must go with her. As the two try to make the most of their circumstance, taking up with a reckless group of new friends, Elias soon realizes there's a darkness driving Bray he can't ignore. Now in order to save her, he'll have to convince Bray to accept the consequences of their reality--even if it means losing her. 

My Thoughts:
I loved the Edge of Never so I was expecting this book to be just as good as that one. While I liked this book, I didn't absolutely love it like I did with Cameron and Andrew's story. I did like how these two couples crossed paths in this book. This book touched on mental health and suicide, This author wrote about these subjects with such beauty and realness. You couldn't help but to love Bray and want to get her help at the same time. I just read this book a couple days ago and I'm still thinking about these characters. Bray and Elias are a couple that are just meant to be. Their love knows no bounds. This is a touching love story that everyone should read.
