Tour Stop: THE EDGE OF DARKNESS by Melissa Andrea ~ Review/Giveaway

Title: The Edge of Darkness
Author: Melissa Andrea
Hosted by: Swoon Worthy Books

After a tragic accident, Araya Noelle is left with a constant reminder that nothing is forever.

She is forced to give up her chance to be the youngest dancer accepted into Julliard & taking over their high society school by a graceful storm of determination is no longer an option. Instead of dwelling over her loss, she accepts the new future she’s been dealt. In a world as black as hers, there's no room for bitterness, no time for regret. Sheltered from the outside world, Araya has become suffocated by a life she has no control over. Until Ryland Dare comes crashing into her life.

You don’t know true darkness until you've felt light…

Like a firecracker, showering her with colorful sparks of freedom, Ryland quickly sweeps Araya away from her grey existence. For the first time since the accident, living in darkness is no longer something Araya wants to do willingly. Unleashed by the shadows of her reminder, being with Ryland, Araya touches light. Together they will learn what it’s like to feel alive for the first time.

At the edge of darkness, a ray of light, will dare them both to HOPE. 

DARE them to LOVE
DARE them to LIVE

Wow! Just Wow! Where do I begin with this one. At first I didn't know what to expect. I knew the author was eluding to something but when I got to that point in the book it was like Wham! I sat there thinking, "Now I get it." 

Araya is a dancer whose dream is taken away by a tragic car accident. Life at this point puts her into a darkness that she just tries to survive. She meets Ryland at the park and instantly there is a connection between them. Ryland is from a very wealthy family, a family who seems to know what is and who is best for him. Their plans for him do not include Araya. 

This review is so hard to write because I want to shout from the rooftops about this book. I want to tell people how this author made me happy, I want to also say I kinda hate the author too for making me Ugly Cry! Seriously though, this book is so well written and there are so many surprises to the plot that I can't say much without spoiling it. All I can say is Read It, Love It, and Thank me later. 

Hang on to your readers and enjoy this emotional roller coaster of a read. Grab your tissues and make sure there are not any breakable objects around when reading. I white knuckled my kindle through the last few chapters. This book was a breath of fresh air and had a very unique story line. I am honored to have been able to read and review it and I give this book 5 Stars!


About the author...

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.

I am the author of Flutter, The Discover Series! Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing.

Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.

I was born in Denver, Colorado–but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.

4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink and things that sparkle(including vampires), I am a firm believer that chocolate cures ALL and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5) Okay, maybe I cheated a little with my list, shhhh.
