Next to Never (Fall Away #4.5) by Penelope Douglas

New York Times bestseller Penelope Douglas introduces Quinn, younger sister to Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon, in the latest novella in the series that began with Jared and Tate in Bully....

Quinn Caruthers has several problems.  

Her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon.  

Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings—or even date—without them jumping in to hover. And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood captures her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man—experienced, sophisticated, and important. And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.  

But Lucas left town years ago and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore.     

But then a package turns up on her doorstep with no return address and its contents reveal family secrets that threaten to turn Quinn’s world upside down. She’s never asked about the tumultuous path of her parents’ romantic history, but she soon learns their happy marriage had a very rocky and passionate start.  

As she begins to see things around her with new eyes, Quinn will have to make tough choices about whether she’ll keep waiting…or finally go after what she really wants.


5 Never Ending Stars!

I'm telling you...this series, these characters, the story lines with these characters can go on forever and never end and I'll be just happy! I can't get enough of Jared and Tate's friends and family.

Next to Never is an unexpected story within a story. Yeah, that probably didn't make sense, but it's a must read for fans. This books explains the beginning of Jared and Madoc's friendship, the relationship between Jason and Katherine and how the Bully gang all came together. And again, I'll just say I loved every page!

There's not much to be said about this novella without spoiling the surprises, but I guaranteed you'll be consumed by this read and wanting more by the time you read the last page. I know I am. Just to note, it's good to refresh you memory of who is who. There are so many kids between the families and it's easy to forget who belongs to who. Here's a great family tree that the author shares: 

I'm ready to read about the next generation of the Fall Away series!
