Product Description

Product Description

From the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of Bully, Until You, Rival, and Falling Away comes the sizzling conclusion to the Fall Away series.
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.

I really loved this book like I mean LOVED this book. It was a great way to end a great series. God! I absolutely love Jared and Tate.

There were a couple of moments in the book that I was really pissed at Tate for some of the stunts she pulled but then I had to remember, she is only 22 years old and still has some things to figure out. There is a horrible scene that takes place at a bachelor party and I honestly felt everything Jared was feeling. It was heart wrenching. As for Jared, well he was just awesome in this book. His love for Tate was absolute, no wavering there. There was some angst but nothing I couldn't handle and when they figured their s*** out it was Jared and Tate all the way. It was great to catch up with Madoc, Fallon, Juliet and Jax. Oh ya and Lucas makes an appearance in the book too. I also can't forget Pasha, she was an awesome character.

Until You is absolutely my favourite book in this series, I love reading anything in Jared's POV. Falling Away is a close 2nd and then there's Aflame.

Penelope wrapped everything up very nicely. The epilogue was FANTASTIC!

I will miss Jared, Tate, Madoc, Fallon, Jax and Juliet but I own all the books so I can read them again anytime I want.

Thank you Penelope for giving us these characters and their stories. It was an awesome ride!

By Natasha is a Book Junkie - Published on

“Would it have been better if I had never left? Would you still love me if I kept living a lie?”

Ah, the sweet sorrow of seeing one of your most beloved series come to an end! I have to admit, I was a late comer to the Fall Away ‘party’, having discovered this phenomenal group of characters only very recently, but from the moment I dove into their world, I have been utterly bewitched. It all began with Jared and Tate’s tumultuous teenage romance, and in this stunning conclusion to the series, we revisit these characters and watch them fight once again for their happily-ever-after. It’s the kind of scenario no fan of this series really wanted to ever see happening, but every aspect of this story was just as it should be, true to the characters and their personal journeys, thus cementing my love for this author’s consistently perfecting writing style and her uplifting brand of storytelling.

“I love you. I love you so go***mn much. I just…I just need time, some space, to figure out who I am and what I want.”

At twenty years of age, Tate and Jared have their whole lives ahead of them. They have grown up together, overcome their worse fears while finding their ways to one another, and ultimately discovered the kind of love that defines them, shapes their every decision in life. But somewhere along the way, Jared lost himself. Torn between what he believes is expected of him and what his free-spirited nature calls him to do, he makes the ultimate sacrifice for the sake of the woman he loves more than life itself, hoping that by making the right changes in his future and thus finding himself in the process, he’d give Tate the man she deserves to have at her side.

“I hate feeling like I’m a lost puzzle piece. Where the hell did I fit?”

Two years go by, two years of heartbreak on both sides and endless longing, and when they meet again, they are no longer the kids they once were. They are stronger, more confident in themselves, finally certain of what they want out of life, but their love has not changed at all, regardless of all the resentment obstructing their path towards each other. Having channelled all her anger and pain into her passion for racing cars, Tate is no longer the hesitant little girl who once allowed a bully to make her life miserable—she now thrives in situations that used to intimidate her, drive her to tears, and having to now face each day the man who broke her heart and left her behind only draws out even more the tenacious fighter in her.

“The players might be the same, Jared, but the game has changed.”

But this is not a story of heartbreak, as heartbreaking as Jared and Tate’s separation is to witness. This is the story of two halves of a whole finding their way to one another, of having enough self-awareness to see where their life was inevitably heading and enough courage to make the necessary changes. There is no pointless angst or superfluous drama aimed at putting these characters through the wringer and back. Every aspect of this story is character-driven, their inner battles just as crucial to the development of the story as their occasional confrontations, and we feel their pain, their uncertainty, their desire, their anger, their hope, and their determination. We feel it all and our hearts rejoice in every little dagger that is aimed their way, every heart-clench, every moment of skin-tingling emotion that makes this story so addictive and impossible to put down.

“I left so I could be a man for you. So I could come back to you.”

This story, quite simply, makes sense. It adds a wonderful new layer to a tale that, in hindsight, would have felt incomplete without it, showing us that sometimes one needs to lose their beacon in order to learn to navigate through life as a complete person, without crutches or lifelines, and that no amount of time or distance can erase true love. While in their first book we heard only Tate’s voice, and in the second one only Jared’s, in this book, we hear both, never losing our connection to both these characters and the insight into the emotions driving their every action. Everything about them is different this time around—their maturity levels, their levelheadedness, their willingness to fight for one another—making this chapter in their beautiful story only even more compelling and appreciated.

“I’m a better man, but there’s never been a better woman for me. There’s never been anyone like you.”

But this is not only Tate and Jared’s grand finale—we get to see again all the other couples as well, as their fates remain forever closely intertwined, leaving us with the goofiest grins on our faces. A spectacular ending, a much needed closure, a series that only kept getting better and better, becoming one of the finest examples of the New Adult genre.

“Everything else may change, but never the way I love you.”

HASH(0x9a9f1288) out of 5 stars Absolutely Spectacular!!! April 20 2015
By Red25 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I cannot believe I'm writing the last review for the last book in the Fall Away series and I can't think of a better way to send this series off with the couple that started it all. Bully was the first book I ever wrote a review for on Amazon and I can't believe that it hasn't even been two years since it all began because I feel like I've known these characters and their stories my whole life. It's sad and extremely bittersweet to say goodbye and the only thing that makes it better is knowing that I can go back and visit them and also the hope that Penelope will write about these characters again someday. It is a phenomenal book and I couldn't possibly tell you how much I loved it!! 

At the end of Falling Away, I was completely and utterly heartbroken. I cried and not just one or two tears, like a lot of them. I couldn't fathom a book world where Jared and Tate weren't together, it's just not right. I was left reeling and feeling so many emotions waiting for Aflame. I felt anger, worry, nervousness, anticipation, acceptance, and peace. Of course, that didn't stop me from totally freaking out before I started the book so much that I almost had to slap myself to calm down, but luckily someone came into the room and I got it together. 

At first I thought I wasn't really going to talk about Jared and Tate because we already know them and then I realized that they changed and grew up, so I do have to talk about them. I'll talk about Tate first. I'll admit that I was I worried that she wouldn't be the same and that she would be bitter and cold and just not her. It turns out all of my worrying was for nothing, though, because while Tate did change and grow up, she still has the same voice and she was still recognizable. I wasn't always happy with her, sometimes I was downright mad at her, but she always pulled back from doing something unforgivable and I still love her. I also got a big kick out of her challenging Jared, it was very fun to watch! 

Now I know a lot of people were/are mad at Jared for needing to find himself by leaving Tate. I was too, for a while, but I stopped being angry with him a long time ago because I understand his reasons. I was really on his side because I knew he never meant to hurt Tate, he was trying to save her and himself by leaving and I was just as hurt as he was when Tate couldn't understand that. It just had to happen though because it made Jared grow up. He's still a possessive alpha, he still definitely has his jerk moments, but he really becomes an amazing man and I could not be any prouder of him than I am. I wholeheartedly love Jared for all his parts, but most especially for his sweetness--he just makes me sigh and melts my heart! 

Aflame broke my heart the most, but just like Penelope said it would be, it was also the funnest book in this amazing series. I felt all the emotions: anger, sadness, fear, happiness, amusement, excitement, love, and hope. I laughed, smiled, and grinned. I cried once when I was unbelievably sad and the other when I was unbelievably happy. This book just gave me the feels, but I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Aflame will make your heart race and pound, get your blood heated, and leave you breathless. It's about growing up, making hard decisions and learning to live with them. It's a book with second chances, being brave enough to give them and take them, and also living, loving, and fighting for what you love. Aflame is a beautiful, moving, heart wrenching, steamy epic love story that I will never ever forget. 

Aflame really needs to be read after you've read all the other books in the series because it will make more sense, it will be more enjoyable and make you appreciate and love the series more. It is told from Jared and Tate's POV, we get the epilogue Penelope promised us, and this time there's no question that Jared and Tate will be together forever. ~6 outrageously awesome stars

********I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much, Penelope!!!********

HASH(0x9a9f1564) out of 5 stars Silly, cheesy, and ridiculous. Possible spoilers. April 22 2015
By Faithful Reader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
** Possible spoilers ahead.**

What a silly story. I've read all of the books in this series and generally liked them; the author is a decent writer, but this story was a big disappointment. While the plot was OK (although predictable), many plot points were just plain ridiculous, the characters were immature and frustrating, and the ending was OTT.

The whole premise of the story is based upon Jared leaving Tate because he needed to find himself. However, it doesn't seem plausible that he needed to torch his relationship to do so because it didn't seem at all difficult for him to figure it out. Within six months he had already reached some level of success with his new direction. I'm not sure why he needed to leave Tate to take up racing.

When Jared tried to explain to Tate his reason for leaving he was ridiculously vague, and Tate didn't ask him enough questions; she pretty much forced him out the door as soon as he told her he needed to go. In his POV he kept reiterating that he always planned on coming back but in the dialogue between them which we were privy to (and there was no indication that there was any other), he didn't tell her that. So the main plot of the book is based on The Big Misunderstanding. It is mentioned a few times that he tried to keep in touch with texts and phone calls but Tate wouldn't take them, so the whole story hinges on this failure to communicate.

Then the whole racing thing... sheesh. The scene in which they raced through the streets of town with bystanders recognizing them, gasping and cheering. Really? That was ridiculous. I literally cringed as I read it, it was so cheesy. And the final race that is a Chicken Race? C'mon, really? On an actual racetrack where the owner is running a reputable business (as we're lead to believe)? Again with the ridiculousness.

The end is pretty over the top, with all the friends still being friends, and all their same-age kids being friends... I know it was supposed to be a feel-good ending, and I've read all the other books so I know the characters, but it felt really forced.

This was a very disappointing read for me, although I see that currently 90% of the reviews are five-star so I am clearly in the minority. And if you liked this book, that's great! I have no problem with your opinion, so I would hope you have no problem with mine.

HASH(0x9a9f145c) out of 5 stars Must read!! A beautiful end to such a great series April 21 2015
By Amanda - Published on

I feel like I have been waiting for this book for what seems like forever. Penelope did not disappoint. I thought I loved Tate in Bully but love her even more now. And Jared..... I was mad when he left but I understood :)

Aflame takes place about two years after Jared completely rocked and destroyed Tate's world. Jared is coming home and he thinks Tate is gone over seas. But suprise suprise when she actually hasn't left. I am not going to leave any spoilers because I think that you just need to pick up the book and read it. I laughed, I cried... I love how Penelope has given each and everyone of them a HEA. Loved the Epilogue. What a great ending to the series. I am really really sad that this series is ending however, I look forwarding seeing what is next from Penelope!

HASH(0x9a9f1648) out of 5 stars Fell Flat April 22 2015
By tata1211 - Published on

I was so excited to read this book as I enjoyed Jared and Tatum in Bully and Until You but sadly this did not do their story any good. I can understand needing to find yourself and becoming a man so that you can take care of your woman although but I don't know exactly why he had to break up with her to do that but ok it happens. So many things just seemed ridiculous, his mother waited until 3 weeks before she is due to have a baby to tell him yet everyone else knew, they are racing through the streets and bystanders on the sidewalks are cheering them on when it wasn't a planned race, after they get married because they only had family to the ceremony, people lined the streets cheering for them?????? Tate was weak, Jared didn't really need to fight for her they were like back together pretty much after like 2 days. They were worse than little kids with the back and forth (at least in the first book they were in HS, now she is on her way to medical school but they were both way to immature in this one). I didn't even feel the connection between them like I did in the first book.
