Review ~ The Edge of You by Theresa DaLayne


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.


I absolutely fell in love with The Edge of You by Theresa DaLayne as it is a touching, wonderful story of love, grief, moving on and moving forward. DaLayne writes a very beautiful and poetic story about Maya and Jake that will capture both your heart and attention.  Maya and Jake have this chemistry that is so well written that you can feel it consuming you and you are so captivated by it that you forget that you reading a story.

Both Maya and Jake deserve a break and life just doesn’t seem to give it to them. The troubles that they seem to have to overcome and the triumphs that both characters oversee, will leave you smiling and feeling elated. I can’t give enough praise on how well written The Edge of You was written, and is a definite must-read and addition to your To-Be-Read-Shelf.
