RELEASE DAY and REVIEW: The Edge of Darkness by Melissa Andrea

About the Book:

The Edge of Darkness Blurb

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

My Review:

I was so honored when Melissa Andrea contacted me and wanted me to beta read for The Edge of Darkness. I couldn't wait to read it because Melissa kept teasing all over the internet and it was outstanding.
Araya is by far one of my favorite characters. She has a lot to overcome, but yet she lives on. Ryland is from a rich family, but it isn't a easy home life. But, fate intervenes and Ryland meets Araya. However, it takes a lot for them to to finally get together and carry on a conversation. It isn't lack of trying from Ryland. Even though Araya has a certain outlook on life she is still guarded in a lot of ways. However, day-by-day Araya come out of her shell and Ryland sees life in a different perspective. 
But, the happy relationship doesn't last long. Melissa Andrea puts a twist in there that I am SHOCKED about. SHOCKED!! I was crying so hard by the end of this book, that I could not even type.
My only downfall is that I don't know the release date of Book 2!!

Author Bio:

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.
