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.

My Review:

If you’re a fan of the Fall Away Series such as I am, then you've seen the highs and the lows that Jared Trent and Tatum Brandt have faced together. And in all honesty, it made sense for me when Jared left Tate at the end of Falling Away. It wasn't meant to be permanent. It was meant to give him time to find himself. To find his calling. And who can blame him, really? Tate always had a sense of direction and knew what she wanted to do with her life. Jared didn't have that, and like most of us, he needed time to discover himself. I had faith that everything would be okay in the end.

Now, I’m not going to give you a rundown of the story as I want you to go into it with an open mind. But I'm happy to say that Penelope did an AMAZING job with Aflame, and I was thrilled with the way it ended. My heart feels full and I couldn't have asked for more.

It was fun seeing Tate taking her place on the tracks, racing right there with the guys. I absolutely loved seeing her and Jared race one another again. It was like coming full circle. I adored Madoc for the strong friendship that he has with the both of them, and the brotherly way that would watch out for her.

And most of all, I loved the sparks that still jumped off of the pages every time Jared and Tate were in close proximity with one another. It was hot, sweet, and heart felt. There’s no way in hell that these two would ever have been able to stay away from each other.

Normally I would have devoured this book, refusing to set it down for even a minute, but instead I took my time, choosing to savor it. It's not because it wasn't good. It's not because I didn't WANT to devour it. I took my time simply because I didn't want to say goodbye to this series. To the characters that I've loved and followed for two years.

I would have to give Aflame 5 I-can’t-believe-this-is-the-end, but-thank-you-for-completing-me stars. It was the perfect closing for a Series that I loved, and I’m so grateful for the time that I got to live in their world.

**Aflame is not a standalone, and while I think the reading experience would be best if you’ve read all of the books, I would, at minimum, recommend reading Bully and Until You before starting on this.**

  2. I think what I am going to miss most, and it may seem silly, but I'll miss the conversations between the guys on Penelope Douglas's Author FB page. I always looked forward to those :-)
