Rival: Fall Away Series, Book 2 | [Penelope Douglas]

Rival: Fall Away Series, Book 2

She's back. For the two years she's been away at boarding school, and there was no word from her. Back when we lived in the same house, she used to cut me down during the day and then leave her door open for me at night. I was stupid then, but now I'm ready to beat her at her own game. I'm back. Two years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he's better than me. But I won't be scared away. Or pushed down. I'll call his bluff and fight back. That's what he wants, right?

I'm back. Two years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he's better than me. But I won't be scared away. Or pushed down. I'll call his bluff and fight back. That's what he wants, right? As long as I keep my guard up, he'll never know how much he affects me.

What the Critics Say

"As gripping as it was sexy! Witty dialogue, great chemistry and a great plot make Rival a book you don't want to end." (Colleen Hoover, New York Times best-selling author)

    "oh the DRAMA"

    So many twists & turns.... a little "unreal" but makes for a wild story! It's amazing how much thought we put into things without ASKING what happened or what the deal is.

    Loved Madoc! I thought he was hilarious & I loved Fallons no BS attitude. And of course appearances by Tate & Jared! I can't wait to hear Jax story!

    Where does Rival rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    in the top 5!


    What other book might you compare Rival to and why?

    Penelope Douglas' other books were fabulous too.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved Bully and Until you - this book had the same love/hate to it as those books did. It was almost exactly the same which could have turned me off but it didn't.

    "Madock's Story"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rival to be better than the print version?

    N/A


    What did you like best about this story?

    Picks up where Bully left off. It tells the story of Madock and gives his character a more endearing depth.


    What does Abby Craden and Nelson Hobbs bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The Narration was perfect. I love that It was a his and hers narration.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love this series!!! Maddoc and Fallon...swoon! Each book is a standalone, but the whole series is worth every penny. Narration is wonderful.

    "Rival"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Rival to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print version so I can't honestly answer this question.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I really liked Fallon, she was quite fiesty.


    What about Abby Craden and Nelson Hobbs ’s performance did you like?

    I liked what they brought to the story overall. Hobbs performance had me almost hating Madoc more than I did Jared which is quite impressive.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I don't know maybe something like..."He wants to hate her but can't."


    Any additional comments?

    If you love drama and angst this is the story for you.
