Book & Author details:

The Edge of You by Theresa DaLayne

Publication date: September 25th 2014
Genres: New Adult, Romance


He left home to escape. She made a new life out of guilt. Neither one expected to find love—but not even the Arctic can cool this steamy romance.

Maya knows she’s doing the right thing by moving to Alaska with her parents, but that doesn’t mean she has to be happy about it. Forced to give up a scholarship to a prestigious art school, she relocates to a Podunk town with one college the size of her high school cafeteria, all to help hold her family together after the death of her little sister. But a fresh start can only do so much.

Jake doesn’t like handouts and he certainly doesn’t need any distractions. Working on a salmon boat in Kodiak, Alaska is the only way to pay for his mother’s surgery back in the lower forty-eight. Juggling college courses and constant worry about his mother’s health, Jake couldn’t imagine anything else fitting into his life. That is, until he meets Maya, the sexy Californian artist who tints his world in technicolor.

But when Maya’s family starts to crumble and Jake’s mom takes a turn for the worse, will they drag each other down, or can they find what they were missing all along?

In this new adult romance, Theresa DaLayne paints a swoon-worthy story about life under the midnight sun, following your heart, and learning to live on the edge.

It 's a new adult very sweet and touching. Maya and Jake are two guys who have had to grow up very quickly: both have serious family problems. Jake must cure the sick mother who lives with a man who does not want to work: for pay her care and bills goes to work on a fishing boat in Alaska and also tries to continue his studies. Maya, however, must deal with the loss of her sister and her mother's alcoholism. To keep her family together, she moved with them in Alaska and waiver to realize her dream to attend a prestigious art school in California. The two young meet in an art class at school and among them there is now a certain chemistry. As their story unfolds they will support each other to deal with their problems. Become hard when their family situations worse and Jake will have to return to Washington for the operation of his mother. 

Jake is an adorable boy, is very tender as it takes care of his mother, is willing to do anything to help her. Maya is also a brave and strong, but I was a bit annoyed her attitude towards Jake when he had to leave for the operation of his mother. 
It 's a book very well written, it reads quickly, very nice the final and the setting, Kodiak Island in  Alaska

Theresa DaLayne is a north-south-east-western kind of girl with a quirky personality to match her nomad life. Born in California, she migrated to three different cities in Washington State, a tiny island in Alaska, North Carolina, and finally to the suburbs of Ohio where she currently lives with her husband, three kids, vegetarian cat, and her ungrateful fish.

Always on the lookout for a new story, Theresa is a shameless eavesdropper and will take anyone who provides inspiration and mold them into a character without a second thought. She enjoys writing both paranormal and contemporary stories, considering her mind wanders between worlds of fantasy while she’s forced to live in the real world, very much against her will.
