  • Finally I understand them better

    To be very honest I liked it, but there where parts that I rather not read about. So I didn't love it. This was my least favorite of this series too just because of particular scenes. But on the other side now I understand everything a bit better too. But like the great author she is she makes you forget the things you dislike. So I enjoyed it and now I'm really looking forward to Quin and Lucas their story but also Dylan her story. I must admit my heart hurts for Hunter. I don't know what's gonna happen, but knowing Penelope it's going to be fantastic! This book is basically about Kat and Jason ( Quin her parents, Jared his mom, Madocs father. ). How they met and how their lives were. Told in pov from Quin so It's not what you think it is. But it's flashback's. Maybe that's good to know before you go in. Because I got in and than I was confused but then my brain started to go with me, and I figured it out. I can be smart like that. ;) I enjoyed this one, I didn't love it for some reasons, but this one told me just exactly how and why I fell in love with Penelope Douglas her writing. She always manages to pull you in and makes you exited to continue and don't want to stop until it's out. She truly is my favorite author! If she would make a manual I would read it ( and I normally don't read it, I always start to make, build and fix things without a manual. )

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Awesome

    So let's just start with how much I love Penelope Douglas and her books. I love finding a book series you can get involved with. One you can't wait to read again and again. One you hold your breath waiting for the next book to be published. Omg I loved this book she is such a talented writer. If you were unsure about trying her falling away series don't be it is Awesome. Great job on this book it was well worth the wait.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • “Happiness is a direction, not a place”

    Here’s the thing, I really liked Next to Never. However I’m not sure I understood it. I mean, it was a pretty straight forward and clear storyline, but the way it was formatted, having a book inside of a book, I’m not really sure I got behind that. It was unique and in a way clever for sure, but it also felt unnecessary and ... strange? For a lack of a better word. While the synopsis to the story was technically correct it still felt a bit misleading. I thought this book was going to be all about Quinn and a forbidden romance with much older Lucas and while the book is through Quinn’s POV the book is not really about her at all. And Lucas is barely in it, so it makes me question a bit as to why it was written the way it was. Instead of having a book inside the book, why wasn’t the inside book just the book (if that makes any sense)? It was mostly what the story was about anyway and Kat honestly felt more like the main character than Quinn ever did. The inside book itself was very interesting, dramatic and passionate so it really would have been enough to have that as the story. I loved Kat and Jase’s rocky but beautiful relationship so I was a happy camper just with the inside book. At the same time though, it was really great seeing the old characters and their kids again, seeing their different relationships and interactions, the race and the mischief, as well as the past main characters as lovable protective parents. I am in that sense happy it was written the way it was. I just feel like it didn’t really fit well with Quinn as the main character and her longing for Lucas, especially since her problem with Lucas never led to anything or was ever concluded in any way. Although, having just learned that there will be a next generation series I can’t really complain too much about the lack of conclusion for her an Lucas since I am very hopeful and excited that it will happen in the upcoming series. Thank you, Penelope Douglas, for not quitting on this amazing world and characters!

    Thanks for your feedback!
