Summary

Malcolm Dearing has wide, wide shoulders and messy brown hair, and he looks at me with fire in his eyes. But my uncle says I'm not allowed to talk to anyone from the Dearing family. He won't tell me why, and neither will my cousin Celia.

I've told Malcolm I can't spend time with him, but he keeps showing up everywhere I go, saying things that make me want to get to know him. Trying to stay away from him is only making me think of him more.

I'm not sure how much longer I can hold out. Torn between my family's expectations and my heart, I'm not sure if the risk is worth it.

The Edge of Juniper is the first book in The Juniper Series, a collection of contemporary romances that will make your heart race!

A nice story

This was a nice story but it didn’t grip me. There was nothing wrong, it is well written and narrated. I just found I couldn’t get lost in the characters or story.

Loved this Realistic HEA!

I’ve found a new favorite author! This YA romance had raw emotion but not too intense. It showed how young love should be, how a girl should be treated and loved while involving two different common family experiences. The author did an amazing job building the characters. I was drawn in and hooked from the start. The narrator did fantastic bringing the characters to life! There was no confusion of what character was speaking and she created a seamless story to follow. I can’t wait to listen to the next book in the series!!! I received this audiobook free and am providing my honest review.

Matters of the heart

This was a hard book to listen to at times, more because of the heartbreak I felt for Fay, Celia and Abe than anything else. As Fay's parents take a last trip together to decide whether they're going to go their separate ways or not, Fay is sent to spend the summer with her aunt. Yet, the aunt's family includes an alcoholic husband who keeps the household walking on eggshells. Although she's forbidden to have anything to do with the Dearing family, she falls for Malcolm Dearing. And everything we see about that family is everything at Fay yearns for in her own life. There's young love, yes. And it's intense and leads to a journey of self-discovery. But the part that stands out the most is the abuse at "home" with her aunt and uncle. Her cousins, Celia and Abe, have lived with the dysfunction long enough to navigate it well, but the whole thing is alien to Fay and leaves her wondering about everything she thought she once knew. Can love last forever? What is family? Who can you trust? The story is very well-written and I found myself wanting to know what happened next, making it hard to put down. But just be aware, if you choose to read this, that the edge of your seat feeling comes more from sympathy and fear than from anything else. I wanted the kids to be okay!
