Review: Bully (Fall Away #1) by Penelope Douglas

Bully (Fall Away, #1)

Bully (Fall Away #1) by Penelope Douglas

Release Date: 18/02/14

My name is Tate. He doesn’t call me that, though. He would never refer to me so informally, if he referred to me at all. No, he’ll barely even speak to me.

But he still won’t leave me alone.

We were best friends once. Then he turned on me and made it his mission to ruin my life. I’ve been humiliated, shut out, and gossiped about all through high school. His pranks and rumors got more sadistic as time wore on, and I made myself sick trying to stay out of his way. I even went to France for a year, just to avoid him.

But I’m done hiding from him now, and there’s no way in hell I’ll allow him to ruin my senior year. He might not have changed, but I have. It’s time to fight back.

I’m not going to let him bully me anymore.

***This novel contains adult/mature young adult situations. It is only suitable for ages 18+ due to language, violence, and sexual situations.


5 Lasts Forever Stars on Goodreads

Read from January 20 to 22, 2017

”You were my tempest, my thunder cloud, my tree in the downpour. I loved all of those things, and I loved you. But now? You’re a fucking drought. I thought that all the assholes drove German cars, but it turns out that pricks in Mustangs can still leave scars.”

For the last 3 years Jared has been making Tate’s life a living hell. She can’t understand why or what she did for him to treat her this way! Heartbroken she goes to Paris for a year and when  she comes back she realises that she needs to change and needs to stand up for herself more. Beginning with taking no crap from Jared and his friends.

“Yesterday lasts forever.
Tomorrow comes never.
Until you”

I hated Jared at the start and my heart ached for Tate. But as the story went alone I warmed to him. From start to finish, Bully grabbed a hold of me and my heart. I cried, I laughed and I could not get enough of this book. I’ve discovered a new author with Penelope Douglas and cam’t wait to dive into the next books in her Fall Away Series.
