The tables have turned. Now I have the power—and it’s his turn to beg…
Everyone wants to be me.
Maybe it’s the sway of my skirt or the way I flip my hair, but I don’t care. Even though their attention is the last thing I crave, I just can’t stop. I dominate the track, the speed rattles my bones, and the wind and the crowd screams my name.
I’m her. The girl driver. The queen of the race. And I’m surviving—something he thought I’d never do.
They all talk about him. Did you see Jared Trent on T.V? What did you think of his last race, Tate? When is he coming back to town, Tate?
But I refuse to care too much. Because when Jared does come home, I won’t be here.
Tatum Brandt is gone. I’m someone new.
So What Did I Think of Aflame by Penelope Douglas?
*This is not a standalone but a continuation to Tate and Jared’s story so it’s advised that you read Bully to get their whole story!*
The drama was so intense and complex which I really liked. The struggles that Tate and Jared faced such as dealing with ones future and finding out who you are and what you want to do to make you happy, was real and relatable.
Seeing how Tate and Jared dealt with who they were now, growing into adults really pulled me into the story. Since they got together when they were young I was really happy to see them dealing with how their lives had changed and how they changed themselves.
The romance between Jared and Tate was this blazing thing full of passion and challenge. Their chemistry was strong as ever filled with love, hate, hurt, craving and I enjoyed watching them battle with their feelings. The banter between them was really good and I loved how this time around not only did Jared challenge Tate but Tate really stepped up and challenged Jared.
I really liked seeing all of the character in the series again grown and matured, finding their place in life. They all were complex and interesting characters to get to know and I loved all of their drama.
This story made me both happy and sad because I loved getting back into the Fall Away series with these great characters and finding out how things would finally end between Jared and Tate but I was sad to see this series end. Overall I loved reading Aflame by Penelope Douglas and I look forward to reading more from her.
