TOUR: Falling Away by Penelope Douglas

Title: Falling Away (Fall Away, #3)
Author: Penelope Douglas
Genre: NA |  Contemporary Romance
Release Date: January 6, 2015
Synopsis
 
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.…

***REVIEW TO COME***

“You’ve got some ego,” I bit out. “I mean, yeah, all of a sudden you have money. Where you get it from is too scary to even think about,” I spouted off when I really should just shut up. “And you seem to have the town’s police in the palm of your hand. You’re clearly running the Loop now. Congratulations, Jax.” I smiled a big-ass, fake grin. “You’re the most powerful man in Shelburne Falls, Illinois!”
 
I planted my hands on my hips, pretty damn pleased at how good I’d gotten at putting men in their place. 
 
But then my smile dropped and my eyes rounded. Jax’s eyes—full of challenge and amusement—narrowed on me, and he tossed his towel down, heading right for me. 
 
Shit. I knew I should’ve listened to my mother. I talked too much. 
 
He nodded, a grin playing at the corner of his mouth. “There she is.”
 
I inched back to the wall as he advanced into my space. “What are you talking about?”
 
“The snarky girl I met at Madoc’s house years ago.”
 
Yeah, the one that was slightly drunk and hella confident? My head bobbed off the wall, signaling I was at a damn dead end, and a trickle of sweat skidded down my neck. I saw Jax’s eyes flash to it, and all of a sudden I was too dumb to even remember my own name. 
God, he was big. My chest vibrated with the heat of him only an inch away. He hovered over me, engulfing and consuming the space around me, making me feel as if I stood in the shadow of a tree. 
 
Staring straight ahead, I made a conscious effort to keep my face straight. But it was almost impossible, and it was pointless. Out of all the reasons I could come up with for hating Jax—he always challenged and pushed me, and he always did whatever the hell he wanted—I could never claim that he wasn’t smart. He knew I was affected. He knew my body liked him close. 
 
“I love it when you get mouthy,” he whispered down on me. “It makes me want to shut you up.”
 
Son of a bitch. I clenched my thighs together, feeling the moisture there. 
 
I needed to get out of here. “I have to go.” I pushed off the wall but hit his chest, closing me in again. 
 
“How do you like your community service?” he said low, trapping me by planting his hands on the wall on each side of my head. 
 
Huh? 
 
His smell was raw heat. Summer. Sticky cotton candy on a Ferris wheel and cool water on hot skin. 
 
“What?” He’d asked me a question. What the fuck did he just ask? 
 
He leaned on his hands, dipping his head close to mine. “Community service, K.C. How do you like it?”
 
I could hear the laughter in his voice. 
 
“I don’t,” I mumbled. “Teaching a bunch of kids who slacked off during the school year, because they didn’t get the attitude adjustment they needed, isn’t my idea of a good time.”
His arms lowered a bit, and I could hear him inhaling through his nose, as if he was smelling me. 
 
“Your idea of a good time got you here in the first place.” His voice was calm but firm. “And those kids don’t need an attitude adjustment. You do.”
 
I smirked. “Well, I’m getting one. Thanks to the great state of Arizona.” Then I pinned him with hard eyes. “You don’t know me, Jax.” And I pushed him away and turned for the door. 
 
But he hooked my arm, pulling me back. 
 
“You’re right,” he said quickly. “I don’t know you. So why don’t you enlighten me? What does 
K.C. stand for? What did you do at college that got you arrested?”
 
When I just stood there, not answering his stupid questions, he backed me into the wall again. “Let’s try something easier, shall we? Your favorite color. What is it?”
 
“Are you serious?”
 
“Are you stalling?”
 
I scowled. “Pink. It’s pink.”
 
“Is it?” he pressed. “How about music? Who’s your favorite band? What about books? Your favorite genre? When was the last time you ate chocolate or stayed in your pajamas past eleven in the morning?”
 
I didn’t know if the walls were closing in or if it was just Jax crowding me. “What are you getting at, you little shit?” I accused. 
 
And he got in my face, smiling at the challenge of my condescending name-calling. “How about a shower, K.C.?” The sound of his deep, husky voice swirled in my stomach and shot downward. 
 
I gulped, licking my sandpaper lips. “Huh?”
 
He stared at my mouth, looking hungry. “The little shit—who’s not so little anymore—needs a shower,” he whispered, still staring at my mouth. “Take a shower with me. Right now.”

She needed a hero; instead, she got Cade.

Cade was no hero. He was a nomad, a wanderer with no ties and he liked it that way. Hired out to save Fat Louise and her spoiled sister from a cartel run Mexican city was a risk he was willing to take, for the right price. With a certain gray eyed woman on his mind, he sets out to find her, fuck her and forget her. No harm, no foul. But it’s all easier said than done when it comes to this plain Jane.

He expected a biker bitch who knew the rules; instead, he got Fat Louise.

Fat Louise wasn’t about to put her crew in danger. She had to learn to handle problems on her own, even if they included a six-foot biker she was forced to rely on, if she was going to rescue her sister. She never expected to see Cade again after she’d left Mexico, but all it takes is one night with him to prove that even a bitch’s heart can be broken.

“I was born in a small town in Kentucky. My family began poor, but worked their way to owning a restaurant. My mother was one of the best cooks I have ever known, and she instilled in all her children the value of hard work, and education.

Taking after my mother, I’ve always love to cook, and became pretty good if I do say so myself. I love to experiment and my unfortunate family has suffered through many. They now have learned to steer clear of those dishes. I absolutely love the holidays and my family puts up with my zany decorations.

For now, my days are spent writing, writing, and writing. I have two children who both graduated this year from college. My daughter does my book covers, and my son just tries not to blush when someone asks him about my books.

Currently I am writing five series of books- The Last Riders, The VIP Room, Predators MC, Biker Bitches, and The Dark Souls.

All my books are written for one purpose- the enjoyment others find in them, and the expectations of my fans that inspire me to give it my best.”

Synopsis Worlds are realigned on one winter’s night.

“The thunderous storm that he is intensifies and I’m about to beg him for this.”

The Ballerina
I’ve had plenty of practice being graceful, but he has my heart tripping over my pointe shoes. I’ve conditioned myself to rely on nobody else and I won’t start now. I’ll push back as hard as I can. However, he seems to be determined on pulling down the wall I use to separate myself from others. Removing myself from his vise grip just became excruciatingly difficult. The storm that follows this man—no, the storm that is this man—has given me more than what I’ve bargained for.

The Storm
The primal need I have for her is deeper than any I’ve experienced before. My world has shifted in more ways than one, and I’m not going to stand around and be held hostage where I don’t belong. The next move I make won’t be for anyone else but myself, and if it happens to bring my world to a screeching halt, then I’m not going to fight it. I’m determined. I want her.

My Review

This is their debut novel and it was amazing! I loved every minute of it! Heather and Noah are such amazing characters. The ups and downs these two go through in their lives before they meet and after they meet are unlike any other I’ve before.

Heather is a ballerina and Noah is a law student getting ready to take his bar exam. Noah gets the shock of his life and Heather gets an offer of a lifetime. The story is told from both POVs (which I LOVE) so you get to understand what’s going through both of their minds.

This book made me laugh and at times I wanted to throw my kindle because of Noah and Heather.

I give this book 5 pink fucking stars

Melissa Collins has always been a book worm. Studying Literature in college ensured that her nose was always stuck in a book. She followed her passion for reading to the most logical career choice: English teacher. Her hope was to share her passion for reading and the escapism of books to her students. Having spent more than a decade in front of a classroom, she can easily say that it’s been a dream.
Her passion for writing didn’t start until more recently. When she was home on maternity leave in early 2012, she read her first romance novel and her head filled with the passion, angst and laughter of the characters who she read about it. It wasn’t long before characters of her own took shape in her mind. Their lives took over Melissa’s brain and The Love Series was born.
