Rival (Fall Away, #2)

Rival by Penelope Douglas

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Love it

I am so thoroughly enjoying this series, and this book took the angst up a notch. What happened when Fallon left? Why does Madoc hate the theater room? Was Madoc going to find out what Fallon was hiding? And, WHERE THE HECK IS JAX? (All of these, and more, were answered in the book, fyi).
I was going crazy waiting for Fallon and Madoc to get their heads on straight and just talk to each other. Admit to how they felt. Realize what really happened to years prior. But they are still teenagers, and even most adults can’t manage emotional vulnerability and honest communication. So there’s that.
I loved this book. The suspense, the drama, the angst, the strong feeling of wanting Fallon’s mother to get her dose of karma. Right in the face. With a brick.
Anyway, this book was sad, funny, suspenseful, infuriating, sexy, and an all-around good time. I still can’t wrap my head around how this series was the author’s first. It is so solid.
Recommended!

From the New Adult sensation and New York Times bestselling author of Until You

Madoc and Fallon. Two estranged teenagers playing games that push the boundaries between love and war…

She’s back.

For the two years she’s been away at boarding school, there was no word from her. Back when we lived in the same house, she used to cut me down during the day and then leave her door open for me at night.

I was stupid then, but now I’m ready to beat her at her own game…

I’m back.

Two years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he’s better than me.

But I won’t be scared away. Or pushed down. I’ll call his bluff and fight back. That’s what he wants, right? As long as I keep my guard up, he’ll never know how much he affects me….

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
