Falling Away by Penelope Douglas
Jaxon is the guy she’s supposed to avoid.
K.C. is the girl he won’t let get away….
K. C. Carter has always followed the rules—until this year, when a mistake leaves her the talk of her college campus and her carefully arranged life comes crashing to a halt. Now she’s stuck in her small hometown for the summer to complete her court-ordered community service, and 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 to ever 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 the bond between them grows, he discovers that convincing K.C. to get out from her mother’s shadow is hard, but revealing the darkest parts of his soul is nearly impossible.…
Grade: A+++ (Over 5 Stars)
Oh my, I’m not sure I can put into words at how good this book was. We are taken on a very emotional roller coaster ride. Jax and K.C. are two broken people, hiding from their past and trying to live everyday without be dragged back down. They are so right for one another, but are afraid what will happen if they give into the happiness they feel. I just can’t get over how awesome this book was. I wasn’t fully prepared for all of the emotions I felt while reading this one. I really loved it. The author did an amazing job, you go on an emotional ride, but it is so worth it. Job well done, Penelope Douglas.
