Blog Tour + Giveaway: Until You by Penelope Douglas

Until You (Fall Away, #1.5)Author: Penelope Douglas
Publisher: Self-Published
Number of Pages: 368

"Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or so numb that you actually felt high? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between. Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone.Except Tatum.I love her so much that I hate her. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her or anyone else.So I hurt her. I pushed her away.But I still need her. The sight of her centers me, and I can pool all of my anger into her. Engaging her, challenging her, bullying her...they are my food, my air, and the last part of me that feels anything human.But she left. She went to France for a year, and came back a different girl.Now, when I push, she pushes back."

Beautiful, unique, and an just plain amazing, Until You will pull you in even more into the amazing series that is Fall Away.

This is book 1.5 of the Fall Away series. There is no new character or new romance, but it's the same story as Bully just in Jared's POV. Could things even get more enticing than this? Yes, yes it can because book two is Madoc's story! But we will get to that later.

This book has got to be the best change-of-POV-sequel I have seen so far in my life. Most of the time I usually feel very unsatisfied when I read a sequel in another character's POV. This book was still amazing. I was enraptured into the story and I just couldn't let go..of Jared. I really, really love Jared!

The characters in the book were so amazing and I love them even more than I did before-of that's even possible. Jared, of course, was his amazing self and Tate was just great with her awesome name and even better personality.

I know in my Bully review I talked a lot about Tate and Jared and how I felt about them (click here to read my Bully review) so I thought instead of talking about Tate and oh-so-hot-he's-a-god Jared I would talk about the guy that is my second favorite character (after Jared)...Madoc!
“Oh baby", Madoc groaned to the girl next to him. "Snickers ain't the only thing king sized.” 
Madoc is the absolute funnies character in this book. He's funny and can be a jerk but from the heart he's a real teddy bear. You end up falling in love with him and you just want to see more and more of him. Thank god he gets his own book! Hopefully it comes out soon!

I HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who read Bully or just wants to read a unique New Adult Contemporary Romance. This is definitely your book. I would say that due to the graphic sexual content that only read this book if you are 17+ or are comfortable with the situations. Otherwise everyone should read this book.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!
