Falling Away by Penelope Douglas

fallingaway

Jaxon is the guy she's supposed to avoid . . .

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.

K.C. is the girl he won't let get away . . .

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.

Review: 'Falling Away' is the explosive new book in the 'Fall Away' series. In the first three books KC was a minor, mysterious character that seemed to make bizarre decisions with no reasonable explanation. In this book, her characteristics become much more clear as you learn her heartbreaking past - and present. Jax has also had it difficult and it's this struggle that makes them so perfect together. Although, it definitely isn't a smooth ride. This book is an amazing read, utterly gripping! I couldn't wait to finish it, but I didn't want it to end...
