K. C. Carter has always followed the rules - until she makes a mistake that leaves her the talk of her college campus and brings her carefully arranged life crashing to a halt. Now she's stuck in her small hometown for the summer so she can complete her court-ordered community service. To make matters worse, trouble is living right next door.
Jaxon Trent is the worst kind of temptation and exactly what K. C. was supposed to stay away from in high school. But he never forgot her. She was the one girl who wouldn't give him the time of day and the only one ever to say no. Fate has brought K. C. back into his life - except what he thought was a great twist of luck turns out to be too close for comfort.
As they grow closer, he discovers that convincing K. C. to get out from under her mother's shadow is hard, but revealing the darkest parts of his soul is nearly impossible.

"[The] chemistry is downright explosive." (Publishers Weekly)
Penelope is an amazing author. the stories that she writes are unbelievable. I loved this book, actually a love this series. must read.
I knew from Bully that Jaxson Trent has had a rough life. We read/heard some of the traumatic things but we all knew it didn't even scratch the surface. But boy does that feel like an understatement!
But never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the horror the was behind closed doors at K.C.'S house. Holy Sh!t! Talk about a mind f@ck!
Two broken people wishing their lives were better but never dreaming they could be. A little magic, some court appointed community service, and some hidden attitude are just enough spark to start the forest fire that becomes Jaxson and Juliette. Raging, burning, and destroying- they must overcome preconceived notions, fear, and demons clinging to their backs. But is it really worth all of this...just for a fling? Because that's all it can be...right?
Falling Away has so many meanings in this powerful story of self doubt, love, and family. I would love the kind of family this crew has developed. Even scary mob bosses...
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
What I enjoy most about this series is that even though characters reoccur in each of the books they are stand alone books! Each one has been enjoyable and I have wanted to listen to them as soon as possible. I high recommend each of the three books available on audible. I used a credit for each one without regret. So worthy of a high ratings and the credit!
Loved watching Juliet develop some cajones. expecially when she explained to Jax why he was scum. favorite and most heart breaking scene.
I love this author. These books have great story lines and are super hot. I listen every chance I get and the story keeps my heart pounding. All the books in this series have been a great listen. The author does such a good job of laying out the the story with all the details. It makes my imagination run wild. I definitely look forward to more books by Penelope!!
The part where Jax teachers kc to drive a stick shift muscle car is so descriptive and hot . I loved the whole heart pounding chapter.
I really enjoyed this series. I think the author probably could have done a little Better on this book. She saved the excitement for the end and it felt a bit hurried and unfinished to me, but worth the credit .
Jax so torched and lovable, this story just warmed my heart. Two Huge Thumbs Up Penelope Douglas
The Fight Jax was having with his soul
The end where all his family came together to show how much they love him and mean to him. He finally realized how worthy he was!
Ok, so I will be so honest, I was SOOO afraid to read this one. I wasn't sure that my heart could take it...you know...when you so want to read a book but are so scared to actually see what happens...that was me...I have the ebook, I have a paperback and yet....never opened until I said, Stop being a Baby and listen to it, for some reason (and I have the complete series in audio), I am better able to listen that read this series...who knows ....anyway...SO SO SO SO SO happy that I finally took the leap because I freaking LOVED FALLING AWAY...I don't think Penelope could have done a better job at making you completely break, just to be put back together again....and then break you again...my heart still hurts.
KC/Juliet's story was so heartbreaking...who the hell would have known after meeting her in BULLY that this was what was hiding underneath. (Best part...the butter knife....HAHAHAHA).
Jaxon...well, well, well.....that little dirty talker was "nasty" and I mean more in a sense of Janet Jackson...rather than "Nasty" like mean...even though her had his moments when he needed a good one over the knee.
Penelope blew me away again...and I can't WAIT for the next in the series...let's see Jared and Tate get into some trouble!!
