Review: Falling Away by Devon Ashley

Falling Away by Devon Ashley
Published Date: February 2013
Publisher: Self
Genre: Mature YA 17+ / New Adult for Language and Sexual Situations

The Story:  Jenna’s first two years of community college are almost over and it’s time to decide where to finish her degree. Should she attend Yale to be with Robert, or off to Rutgers, where she really wants to go? As Sophie and Jhett’s engagement is announced, she begins to question if she'll live happily ever after too. Right on cue with her doubts, a familiar boy pops up in her dreams again. But Evan's entrance is as abrupt as his exit, and Jenna’s left worrying about his safety. Concern and curiosity get the best of her and checking up on him puts her within arm’s reach of a man that still adores her, and one unexpected act of indiscretion will turn her world upside down and inside out.

 My Review:  Wow, this was the perfect way to finish Jenna's story!  When Devon Ashley first sent out an email asking for honest reviewers, she said up front that there was language and sexual situations.  I was hesitant at first, but I have read all of her other books, so I jumped in.  If you are wondering, the language is similar to what you'll hear in a PG-13 movie, same with the sexual situations. 
So, what girl wouldn't want two guys fighting over her?  In the two years since Jenna and Evan connected in the dream world, he woke up and she moved on fully in love with her then and now boyfriend.  Robert's mother still torments Jenna, that's a scary mother-in-law!!  But after one thing happened, it has Robert, Jenna and Even wondering what's to become of their releationships.
I love the writing style that Devon Ashley has.  The story flows, and you just keep reading until you've finished the story.  You fall in love with the characters, and I even found myself wondering which boy Jenna should end up with!!

  1. The cover of this novel is absolutely gorgeous. I would probably read it on that alone, but after reading the summary it sounds intriguing and like a story I would really enjoy.
