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 they grow closer, 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.…

 

So What Did I Think Of Falling Away by Penelope Douglas?

I have been wanting to know more about Jaxon since he was introduced in the series and I couldn’t wait for this tough guy to fall in love and boy did he. He was bold, sexy and in your face, dealing with hard issues and fighting his growing feelings for K. C.. I enjoyed getting to know more of Jaxon and his dirty talking.

I liked how K. C. though involuntary, stepped away from the good girl persona dictated by her mother. I was very curious to find out what she did to land herself in trouble and the issues she was dealing with her past and family. Though she tried to be perfect there was a depth to her that made her an interesting character to know.

Jaxon and K. C. had such sizzling chemistry with multiple swoon worthy, page melting moments. I loved the banter between them and the intense history they had.

There was multiple conflicts with some edge and drama that kept the story interesting, though I wanted it to grab me more than it did. Overall I enjoyed Falling Away by Penelope Douglas.
