Next to Never

3.75 stars!

“That’s the hardest thing about being a parent. Living through heartache, bearing your struggles, learning the hard lessons the hard way, and enduring years of climbing a wall only to fall back down and have to start all over again . . .”

Next to Never opens with Quinn, the younger sister of Jared and Madoc, two characters from the Fall Away series. Quinn is seventeen and doesn’t k

Next to Never
Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn Caruthers has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings—or even date—without her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon, jumping in to hover. And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood still holds her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man, and knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.

But years ago, Lucas left town and shows no signs of returning. Quinn know

MY BABIES. Tate and Jared are definitely my favorite couple of the Fall Away series and they hold a special place in my heart. The fact that Jared LEAVES and comes back after TWO YEARS to win Tate back had me freaking out. Why couldn't my babies have just been happy?

This book holds two novellas in the Fall Away series, but since I have read Next to Never separately and already reviewed that story, I am only going to be talking about Aflame, the first story in this book. Aflame is over 260 pages

Aflame: (3 stars)

Just when you thought all the drama was over, Tate and Jared kick it up a notch. Jared took off two years ago to find himself, and during that time Tate moved on, and now Jared's come back and realized his mistake. Like previous books, these two dance around each other the majority of the time and it's a push-pull between them.

I will say that I enjoyed getting to see everyone. We meet back up with all the characters

This is the Compilation novel of Aflame and Next to Never from Penelope Douglas. Previously separate, you can now get these novels TOGETHER!


Also, they are Fantastic.



I couldn't put them down. There is something about reading a novella that just gives you a quick transport back to characters and worlds that you love. That is exactly what you get here. Jump back and fall in love. Get prepared to be itching for more and get read to go one-click for PW because this book leaves you craving!

I've already read the Aflame ebook awhile ago but I reread it again because it was so good to get the ending for Tate and Jared but I had never read Next to Never which is the story of Jared's mother and Madoc's father and the beginning of there daughter Quinn's story mixed in. Quinn receives a mysterious package with a romance book inside from an unknown person and while reading the book she discovers it's the story of her parents love affair with some pretty graphic sex since it was her parent ...more

4.5 "Stay Gold Ponyboy" with a nice little addition of " Here's looking at you Kid"!

I love this series and all the characters!!

There are so many, but each one has their own history and adult life. Their lives just captures my interest wanting to know more & more from them.

A well and cleverly written instalment. I'm so looking forward the the next one......There us going to be a best right?!?!?!

Aflame - "Aflame is so much more than just another chapter of Tate and Jared's story. It's a beautiful farewell to every character in this series... Madoc and Fallon, Jax and Juliet, parents, siblings, friends, their lives as they knew it. Everything changes in this book. Penelope Douglas' deep love and respect for these characters comes through these pages in droves. It's obvious that it's her desire to send them off with the farewell they so deserve, to bring them to a place we can all be cont ...more

** ARC provided by the author in exchange for honest review **

For the 1st time Penelope Douglas has combined two books; Aflame & Next To Never into one unique twist of a book… The Next Flame of the Fall Away Series. You still get to experience all your favorite characters from the series, as well experience new perspective from the past.

Aflame follows Jared Trent and Tatum Brandt on their journey of quest. Tatum’s heart was owned by Jared all through high school. He strung her along until h

The Douglas step-cest series continues or rather gives readers the novellas that ran between the installments so that readers of this series could have the "full series" in one whole physical set.

The Next Flame is actually just Aflame and Next to Never in one book its not really a new book. Its essentially a gathering of a story the same as she did for Until You, which fell between Bully and Rival when it was released in print. Same thing here.

If you haven't read this series yet I highly suggest

Even though The Next Flame is the original Aflame and Next to Never combined I still loved it, this was one of those that if you've already read it, it is worth a re-read! Penelope Douglas Fall Away Series is without a doubt one of the BEST series out there today. I fell in love with the characters and their stories beginning with Bully, this author has a way with words for sure! I promise you that you will be hooked from the first book until the last one!

I purchased this twice since it had a different title¿?????????

Still...both books were wonderful. As all others I lived through the characters...great development. It was enlightening to see how the younger generation developed through the experiences of the prior.

Please, please let us know about Quinn and Lucas!!!! I wish their story was here NOW!!!

This book was differemt from Penelope's other book, to me it was setting up the next generation of the Fall Away series. From what I've read I'm real excited for them to come out, I'm just hoping one of the books isn't a love triangle, I kinda got that feeling with three of the characters.

I definitely need more of this series considering I fall for each character every single time. It all just seems wonderful to see after all their struggles they end up with the family they aspire for. Alas, life isn't always what it seems to be. I need to know what happens to every pair of them.
