RELEASE DAY REVIEW! Aflame (Fall Away #4) by Penelope Douglas

Aflame is the 4th and final book in the Fall Away Series. While the other books are written with the ability to read them as stand-alone novels you will most definitely need to read Bully (Fall Away #1) before reading this as this is the continuation/conclusion of Jared and Tate’s story. 

The way Penelope Douglas tells this story is beautiful and she has a way of making you feel strongly for each individual character. I very highly recommend that you not only read Jared and Tate’s story but the whole series. 


Jared and Tate are not together at the beginning of Aflame as you should know after reading Jax and Juliet’s story in Falling Away. It is absolutely heartbreaking to see Jared and Tate both apart and unhappy but trying to make their lives work without each other. 2 years after leaving, Jared returns to Shelbourne Falls to be around for the birth of his half-sister, Quinn. As we all expected there was a lot of push and pull between Jared and Tate and a good part of the book was hard to read, caused me to cry, and was full of angst. When I say the book was hard to read I don’t mean you shouldn’t read it – I mean that it was hard to read because you just want Jared and Tate to get together and it’s hard to read about some of the stuff they went through when they were apart. It was also heart wrenching when we found out that when Jared came back 6 months after he left he intended to propose to Tate but he saw her with Gavin and left.
I was extremely happy to see a thorough epilogue for not only Jared & Tate but the other characters as well and I’m even happier that everyone got a happily ever after!

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 still 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.
