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.… FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Oh boy! this really was a tough one. This is like the only book I didn’t run and write a review right after. Maybe I had to marinate it in for a little bit. Falling Away is done so well, everything Jax went through growing up. Is really difficult to imagine. My heart hurt for him and I think in a lot of ways that he was afraid deep down inside. To really let someone in. To actually care and love someone wholly is such a huge thing. K.C. hasn’t had it easy either. She was brought up in this crazy home, that no one really understood. I loved watching the character growth with these two. They went through this whirlwind but you could tell they had that fire. They belonged together, even though yes they both are stubborn. The narrators did an amazing job with this story. I enjoyed both of them. This quickly has become my favorite series. Overall, I give this Five Boundless Stars
