    45 DARING StarsI'm guttedliterally Heart broken Devastated How could it have ended like that?? sobs sobsNo really?? WTF?? Why?? I knew going in to the book that this was a series but honest to gawd I thought the story was just going to continue I thought it would end in a happy place I haven't felt like this since Rebecca Donovan's Breathing series So perhaps I'm being a bit dramatic But this was a very heart breaking yet heart warming tale In the prologue we are introduced to Araya through two scenes that are entertwinedAraya's final dance performance and the wreck that will change her life forever Araya was accepted to Juilliard at the age of 15 But a devastating car wreck leaves Araya completely in the dark Not only does she lose her mother but her dreams of dancingAfter the wreck Araya is forced to live with her aunt and uncle Nina and Carl Here is how I felt about Nina and CarlNina and Carl were just awful to Arayaforcing her to live a life in the dark Rarely allowing her to leave the house forcing her to believe that she can't do anything on her own that she's not worthy of love or affection On a rare outing to the park Araya meets Ryland Dare He's sees something different in Araya but he can't figure out what it is This makes her even intriguing He asks her out and she accepts knowing that she will never actually show up for the date Evil 1 and Evil 2 Nina and Carl are up to no good and decide Araya needs to be tutored As a result of the accident Araya never finished school Her tutor is none other than Cara Dare Careless Ryland's younger sister Coincidence?Ryland and Araya start to spend and time together Every day Ryland brings Araya closer and closer to the light and out of the darkness He believes in Araya He forces Araya to see past the darkness and to not give up on the dreams she had before the accident And in the process Araya shows Ryland how to live every day like it's your last How to love when he thought he wasn't capable GawdI LOVED Ryland He was willing to give up everything for Araya To love and protect her keep her safe It was so heart warming But Araya wanted to be Ryland's eual She didn't want him to give up his life to take care of her Ryland changed her life in so many ways You dared me to hope when I thought I had none left You dared me to love when I thought I couldn't and you dared me to live again ArayaThis is where things take a turn for the heart breaking Secrets are revealed that are devastating to both Ryland and Araya I couldn't believe that the people that were supposed to love and care and protect them could be capable of such horrible things It forces Ryland and Araya to make decisions about their relationship If I am being completely honest with myself a very teeny tiny part of me understands that the story needed to end the way it did For Araya to fully give herself to Ryland she needed to learn to live on her own not just survive My heart broke for Ryland and Araya I pray that we haven't see the last of Ryland and Araya and that they can find their way back to each other I'll repeatthis is a seriesand it did have a cliffhanger endingFMLListen Melissa Andrearegarding Brightest Kind of Darkness

    Overall this was an enjoyable readI did have a few issues but I can't really go into them without giving away part of the story so I will put my uestions in a spoilerAraya is living with her aunt after her mother passed away Her aunt is the euivalent ofshe along with the uncle treats Avaya like a burden as well as a slaveAraya meets handsome rich hottie Ryland at the park one dayAnd then meets him again after going to be tutored by his sister Careless They develop a relationship even after his sister warns him not to get involvedOf course Ryland's parent's are awful controlling have big egos and do not want him with a lowlife like Araya Cue a little bit of nonsense drama and Araya needing to grow some ballsand finally she does and we get our cliffhanger Good thing I can go straight to book 2uestions I had aboutt bookview spoilerOk not that I have been around many blind people and her aunt and uncle were really assholes but I thought cooking was determined a lot by sight and they have her cooking for them? I mean how do you determine if the eggs are done? How do you determine how clean the dishes are or if you missed a spot? How do you see dust?Really? She hadn't had ice cream in forever and never tasted BB chips? I mean her mom didn't die until she was 15 and supposedly was wonderfulAlso how did she know what Ryland's number was calling him from a payphone? What was the purpose in that? hide spoiler

    5 StarsThe Edge of Darkness is a gripping tale of overcoming fears and finding loveI’ve never read anything like The Edge of Darkness and I simply LOVED IT Gah I can’t convey my feelings and emotions on this BEAUTIFUL Heart Warming taleAraya lives in the dark Her car accident killing her mother haunts her every day Araya lives in a tiny apartment with her aunt and uncle She hasn’t lived her life since that tragic day and she has nothing to look forward until one day she meets Ryland Ryland is rich handsome and his family doesn’t mesh with people like Araya but Ryland is captivated by Araya’s beauty and innocence Ryland may be the light in Araya’s dark worldI had no idea what this book was about and the summary that I read was really vague I was told I would love this book and darn it that person was right You need to read this you need to jump in head first and get consumed the way I didI COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWNAraya is a fragile nineteen year old who hasn’t lived since she was fifteen She has to stay with her mean aunt and drunken uncle She doesn’t do anything but stays in her room and thinks about the past Her situation is VERY SAD I am not giving everything away there’s a HUGE factor that comes into play with this book and once you find out what it isI WAS STUNNED SHOCKED and I WANTED TO READ MORERyland is your rich boy with a chip on his shoulder He lives in a dysfunctional household with a mentally abusive father Ryland’s father wants Ryland to work for the company but Ryland doesn’t want anything to do with his father When Ryland sees a pretty red hair girl one day at a park everything changesRyland and Araya’s relationship forms beautifully I loved the conversations they had and the underlying innocence of it all In a way it remind me how much I love reading YA books not that this is a YA book Ryland and Araya are adorable Araya is cagy shy and kind of on the defence Ryland is strong persistence and sweet The thing I enjoyed most about this book was just seeing two hurt souls using each other to healBoth have dark deep rooted issues but both deal with it differentlyIT’S REALLY A GREAT BOOKThe father comes into play many times in the book and true to form; he’s a villain you love to hate It’s evil he’s mean and he will stop at nothing to push Araya out of Ryland’s life I love these plots because it’s always about the couple verse the world As for the ending I have to say it there’s a HUGE OPEN CLIFFY I nearly died when I got to the last sentence because it will gut you shock you and make you cry tears but no worries book 2 is already out READ THIS More reviews

    More and please I received this copy for my honest review So thank youI did not want this story to come to an end How can we just stop with an ending like that? This book took me to an all new life The way I view things and people I love how Araya things about the situation she was forced into My heart breaks for her and happy for her all at the same time How do you see light in the darkness?Ryland oh Ryland He didn't have a chance Yeah maybe he thought he would never fall in love But he was SO wrong I loved every part of this book The ending took me by surprise but what a good way to end book 1 and to start book 2 Knowing how cruel and hateful people can be is hard but actually reading it in you head and your heart It takes you to a whole new level Seeing Araya in the beginning and how she changed all the way threw made me happy I cried and laughed and cried some lol My heart hurt when the Dare's treated her like an animal Even her own family How can somebody be so cruel? Ryland became her light He changed so much threw out the book as well Going from a player who can not love to a man who found what he wanted and what he was willing to fight forThis is a must read And looking forward to reading book 2 in this series

    DNF at 36%Not sure if it's the book or me but I was just not feeling it The writing was okay the story was okay but I didn't feel very drawn to it I think this just wasn't the right time Maybe I'll try to pick it up later who knows? I definitely wouldn't discourage anyone else from reading it

    The Edge of Darkness had me on the edge of my seat through the whole book I loved every bit of it Melissa Andrea is amazing with words and I can't wait to read book 2 of this series Melissa took two people from two different worlds both dealing with their own issues that have made them broken and different from the rest of the world Arayda has lost everything but still comes out strong and fierce however there are some circumstances that makes her rely on others beyond her capability but don't let that confuse you with her independence Then Ryland shows up and forces her to reach outside her boundaries and shows her the love and care she has been missing for so long Only Ryland doesn't realize Arayda is saving him as much as he is saving her that is until their families get involved and forbid them to be together and are sure to keep them apart no matter the cost
