"Every whisper, every breath, every kiss, and every word came from my gut. This is the book I'm most proud of." ~Penelope Douglas on Falling Away
As you very well should be Ms. Douglas! Simply said......Falling Away is ABSOLUTE PERFECTION!!!
Your readers wanted darker, you gave it. Your readers wanted more steam, you definitely gave that! Your readers also wanted Jax to find the one girl that could help erase his awful past....mission accomplished!
This is not a story of darkness meets light. Both Jax and KC have pasts filled with secrets and deeper undertones than anyone realizes. The saying 'be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about' is so fitting for this story.
There is so much more to KC than anyone realized when we met her in Bully. Gone is the perfect, somewhat self absorbed best friend of Tate. KC is now trying to navigate her future while being back in the small town she grew up in. All the while staying next door to the one guy she knows she shouldn't be around.
Jax. Silently brooding, sweet, sexy Jax. On the outside he seems to have it all together, but beneath the surface he is anything but perfect. His pursuit and resistance of KC, the push and the pull, is exactly why I love him!
There is such a true understanding of likeness between these two, that the 'meant to be' fits this couple perfectly!
I so badly want to go in depth with the storyline but until the book is released I will refrain.
I will say that the way this story is woven completely SHOCKED and impressed me so much!! If you are a huge fan of Bully like I am, you are going to LOVE and fall in love with this book! The progression of KC's character is amazing throughout. For an author to take a character that is not the most liked and transform her into one you're whole heartedly cheering for in the end is true talent and also one of the reasons she will always be one of my favorites!
