No Regreats Blog Tour - Melissa Andrea - The Edge of Darkness


 Let's get to know this amazing lady

Melissa Andrea


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


The Edge of Darkness Blurb

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

My Review

 Wow.....I really loved this book!!! I honestly couldn't put it down. I was pleasantly surprised and I'm really glad that I got the opportunity to read it early.

The storyline is extremely intriguing and character interactions are perfect. I think Araya is such a strong person and I truly respect her. After her life crumbles around her, she still continues on without regret. Ryland is super dreamy. I'd love to have him in my life. They are super cute together and he really does love Araya.  The ending is super sweet ;)

I really love the way the chapters switch between characters. I'm a huge fan of getting into the character's minds as reading.  It gives the reader different perspectives while reading and I felt like I was there.  However, I'm not a fan of the same situation being repeated from both sides and that happened a couple of times, but nothing major and the story still progressed without stand stills.

Overall, I give this book a 5 out of 5 for a tough topic that was written very well and I really loved the characters personalities throughout.  Thank you so much Melissa for allowing me to take a look into Araya and Ryland's lives and I can't wait to see what is to come. Great job, you rock!!! :)
Thank you soooo much Melissa for including me in your blog tour and sharing this amazing story with us!!
