Cover Reveal: Rival by Penelope Douglas + Giveaway!

I am positively wriggling in my seat because I'm so excited for this book!!! Since three weeks ago, I think, when Penelope posted about the cover reveal for RIVAL, I've been jumping up and down every time I see the title and Ing Cruz come up in my inbox, LOL! Finally it is here!!! I am soooooo excited for this to come out! =D

I am PRAYING that I can be part of the book tour for this one. I missed out on book 2, UNTIL YOU by a week or two, I was so sad I pitied myself *pouts* Well anyway, check out the first two books in this amazing series below. Highly recommended series!

Release Date: August 26, 2014
by Penelope Douglas
Book 2 of the Fall Away Series

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…

She’s back.
For the three 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…

I’m back.

Three 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….

You guys have to read this series. I can recommend these books and say with absolute confidence that the series is one of the best in the NA genre! 

The series was just recently picked up by a publisher. They revamped the covers but retained the images, so don't worry if you've seen them before and just didn't get the books (which you totally should have, by the way! lol). They're still easily recognizable. Honestly though, I love the original color cover for BULLY & UNTIL YOU. But since getting published means availability for paperbacks =D then it's okay!

Book 1: BULLY
Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Barnes & Noble | iTunes | Kobo 

My name is Tate.

He doesn't call me that, though. He’ll barely refer to me at all, and he’ll hardly ever 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 worse as time wore on. I even went to Europe for a year, just to avoid him.

But I'm done hiding from him now, and there's no way I'll allow him to ruin another year. He might not have changed, but I have.

It's time to fight back.

When one brave young woman stands up to her best friend Jared, now tormenter, the consequences go beyond anything either of them ever would have imagined….

Book 1.5: UNTIL YOU
Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK | Barnes & Noble | iTunes | Kobo

Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or numb to all emotions? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between. Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone.

Except Tatum.

I love her so much that I hate her. I hate that I can't let her go. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her—or anyone else. So I hurt her. I pushed her away. But I still need her. She centers me. Engaging her, challenging her, pushing her—it’s the one last part of me that feels anything anymore.

But then she went and screwed everything up. She left for a year and came back a different girl. Now, when I push, she pushes back…and I’m not sure either one of us will ever be the same.

About the Author:

Penelope Douglas is a writer and teacher in Las Vegas. Born in Dubuque, Iowa, she is the oldest of five children. Penelope attended the University of Northern Iowa, earning a Bachelor's degree in Public Administration, because her father told her to "just get the degree!" She then earned a Masters of Science in Education at Loyola University in New Orleans, because she hated Public Administration. One night, she got tipsy and told the bouncer at the bar where she worked that his son was hot, and three years later they were married. To the son, not the bouncer. They have spawn, but just one. A daughter named Aydan. Penelope loves sweets, the show Sons of Anarchy, and she shops at Target almost daily.
