Publisher's Summary

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.
Contains mature themes.

My favorite author!

I didn't think I needed or wanted a story about Kat and Jase and how they became Mom and Dad but apparently it's exactly what I was missing! I loved their story. It was actually pretty heartbreaking. It was sweet to see them young and in need of more in their lives. I also enjoyed reading about baby, then teenaged, Jared and Madoc. Jase and Kat's story spans over 20 years. They have a daughter, their second chance. Quinn is essentially telling this story. She is introducing the next generation of this fabulous family. I imagine we will be starting with Quinn's story and I literally can't wait. Penelope Douglas is one of my favorite authors and I don't think she knows how to write a bad book. If you also love Tate and the rest of the gang...read this now!

Past and present

I love the Fall Away series. I Liked seeing everyone all grown up being a family. Their children are just a mischievous as they were in high school. Even though we think of the start of the series with Tate and Jared, it really started with Jase and Kat, though the synopsis makes it seem as though this story will be about Quinn and Lucas. I would describe this as a prequel with in a continuation. I'm curious to see what's going to happen with the next generation. There was so many hints of angst and passion, I know this story is going to be as good as the rest.

Abby Craden seems so much so a part of the series. I wish Nelson Hobbs would have come back for the male perspective parts.
