From the New Adult sensation and New York Times bestselling author of Until You
Madoc and Fallon. Two estranged teenagers playing games that push the boundaries between love and war…
For the two years she’s been away at boarding school, there was no word from her. Back when we lived in the same house, she used to cut me down during the day and then leave her door open for me at night.
I was stupid then, but now I’m ready to beat her at her own game…
Two years and I can tell he still wants me, even if he acts like he’s better than me.
But I won’t be scared away. Or pushed down. I’ll call his bluff and fight back. That’s what he wants, right? As long as I keep my guard up, he’ll never know how much he affects me…
Fallon Pierce hated living in the same house as Madoc Caruthers. Forced together by the marriage of their parents, Madoc always made her feel as unwelcome as possible. He ruthlessly tormented her at home and at school – and she never understood why.
Until one night when their hatred burned so bright that it transformed into a passion so intense that it threatened to destroy everyone in its path and Fallon disappeared without saying a word.
Now two years later, she resurfaces and is infinitely more beautiful and more broken than she was before. But no matter how she tries to fight the intense connection she shares with Madoc, she knows that he is the only one that can put her back together again.
“You act like you have no heart, like you just swallow your conscience with all of the pain you cause. But I see through it, Fallon. The truth is, you want me like nobody’s business.” She closed her mouth and swallowed. “You’ve always wanted me. You know why? Because I don’t try to kill your demons. I run with them.”
Madoc lost his way when he lost Fallon - drowning in endless parties, booze and girls. He thought that she ran from him and never looked back. When he discovers the reason for her sudden disappearance, will he finally be able to admit how he really feels or will she forever be his rival?
“’Nothing that happens on the surface of the sea can alter the calm of its depths.’” He quotes Andrew Harvey. “No one can take away who you are, Fallon. Don’t give anyone that power.”
Rival is by far the most powerful of the Fall Away series to date! The emotional upheaval of the story gripped me to the very end. There was love and hate, devotion and betrayal, heartache and joy. I couldn’t have asked for anything more…
