Publisher's Summary

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.

Great series

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 .

Excellent series!

Realistic situations/story without sacrificing the romance. Characters you love. Excellent dialogue and very few grammatical issues (why is the poor adverb never given its proper due?). I’m eagerly off to the next book in this series.

My favorite of the series!!

This book was amazing! I love this series so much, the author really draws you in and makes you feel connected to each character in it and the world they live in. I actually read the series first and liked it so much I decided to get the audiobooks and wow, the voices were spot on! they did a great job bringing the perfect amount of emotion and life to the characters! I laughed out loud several times and teared up too. Amazing.

Another pleasant surprise

Every time I think I can't be anymore invested in this series, I listen to the next book and I'm sucked in even more. This time around, it was Jax and KC that sucked me in. I love the tension that Penelope Douglas creates between the love interests in all of the series. It seems that they go from angst and tension to passionate love.

Jax is Jared's younger less moody brother who lives in his old house. KC is Tate's best friend. They both have tumultuous pasts that still continue to rule how they live. But eventually KC... now Juliet finds herself. She was a bit winy at times but I liked that her character grew with the experience. Jax on the other hand seems a little more vulnerable that earlier presented. While he doesn't miss a thing, he wasn't exactly as untouchable as everyone though. Overall, I thought that once they got on the same page, their chemistry was great.

who knew?!?!?!?!

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...

Another enjoyable listen!!

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!
