***BLOG TOUR*** The Edge of Darkness by Melissa Andrea

The Edge of Darkness

by Melissa Andrea 


The Edge of Darkness

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

Amy's Thoughts~ 

Have you ever read one of those books that just blows you away? Not from the sex, Not from the sheer hotness of the guy, But from the astonishing emotions you experienced?  

When I was reading this book, I felt like I was watching a movie. I could see the wreck & hear the crunch of metal. I could see Araya singing "their" song to her mother, and see her beautiful light green eyes. And I could feel her heart breaking loss. 

Araya Noelle survived the wreck, at the cost of her eye sight. She was taken in by her aunt and uncle. These two people intentionally treat her as a slave and invalid. Refusing to introduce her to the world as a blind person.  Refusing to teach her how to live. All with ulterior motives...

Ryland hates his life, but he sticks it out for his baby sister. Refusing to leave her behind and subject her to their parents' up-turned noses & insane ideas. His saving grace is meeting Araya in the park. Instantly captivated, smitten, intrigued.

Through a course of events, Ryland & Araya will never be the same. 

This story is intense - emotionally. The environments these two are exposed to is shocking. So shocking, that you wonder how they will make it out intact. 

Where has Melissa Andrea been? The Edge of Darkness is her debut NA book, and all I can say is WOW!! This book is so different than most that I have read, I have to say this one jumps to the top of my MUST READ of the year list. 

I urge you, go buy this book. It is simply AMAZING. 

About Melissa~ 

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.
