It's been a long, tumultuous road for Jared and Tate, a journey that saw them evolve from friends to enemies, to lovers, to exes. Their breakup at the end of Falling Away took a lot of readers completely off guard, but for me, as difficult as it was, I found it to be a completely realistic possibility for this couple. Pain, loss, and poor decisions have altered the trajectory of their relationship repeatedly since they were ten years old. So while their breakup broke my heart, I felt it was a plausible transition for Tate and Jared, a necessary step on their journey to happily ever after. Like the wounded tree that connects their bedroom windows, their story continues to grow and thrive despite a few cracks and flaws.
Compared to the other books in this series, I thought Aflame was pretty tame with regard to the pain and angst factor. There's no denying that the knowledge of their separation itself is painful. But Aflame is heavier on the humor and fun factor and lighter on the heartbreak. This is a story of hope, of healing, of all of these characters growing into better, stronger people. Their journey toward self-discovery, toward absolution isn't rainbows and butterflies, and readers should prepare themselves for that. But in the grand scheme of things, knowing the gut-churning angst Douglas has put me through in previous books, I expected to hurt a lot more than I did. And in hindsight, I'm glad for it. Two whole years have gone by, a lot has transpired in the interim, hearts are broken, souls are adrift. It's rough, it's sad, it's frustrating knowing there's no making up for two years no matter what happens going forward. But the sweet is that much sweeter because of those dark days, because of the painful course of events they went through. Douglas kept me on a precarious line between hope and hurt throughout Aflame, but the antics and witty banter offered up by Madoc and Jax, Fallon and Juliet, Pasha, and Jared and Tate themselves made this story a seriously fun, refreshing one.
Aflame is so much more than just another chapter of Tate and Jared's story. It's a beautiful farewell to every character in this series... Madoc and Fallon, Jax and Juliet, parents, siblings, friends, their lives as they knew it. Everything changes in this book. Penelope Douglas' deep love and respect for these characters comes through these pages in droves. It's obvious that it's her desire to send them off with the farewell they so deserve, to bring them to a place we can all be content knowing they are. And she did that. I couldn't be happier or more satisfied knowing where they are now, that they go on in their fictional world I've grown so invested in even if I can't see it. I loved every painful bit of this journey, and while I hate to see them go, I love the manner in which they were sent on their way.
From the very beginning of Bully, I was stuck on this series. I loved Jared and Tate; I love friends to lovers, second chance romances and this fit the bill on so many fronts. I am really terrible about reading the teaser for the next book in a series at the end of the last (as in, I never do it), but I did for Falling Away, and was immediately had to start Aflame. That scene at the very end of FA from Jared’s POV just about had me in tears (and I’m not a crier) because I wanted their relationship to work, so bad. Douglas did not disappoint.
Told in a dual POV from both Jared and Tate’s perspectives, we begin to understand why things had to happen the way they did, and that sometimes when things fall apart, they’re stronger when put back together. I am looking forward to the next generation of Fall Away, but there will always be a place in my heart for Jared and Tate. Their story finally comes full circle in Aflame and it does so in the best of ways. Douglas has become a one-click author for me, without a doubt.
