THE TWELVE DAYS OF NEW ADULT
Here at Craves the Angst, we love our adult books but we also have a great passion for all those emotional New Adult books that capture the essence of being young, wild and free. I have a love for all things angsty and what's better than young love blooming in the face of all the obstacles the world can deliver?
Two of my absolute favorite New Adult books are listed below.
Bully (Fall Away #1) and Until You (Fall Away #1.5)
embody all the things I love in a book. There's drama, young love, huge obstacles to overcome including trust issues and two very different people who can't seem to get it right.
Tate and Jared have emotional demons to slay. Tate's are in the form of the one person she loved beyond all doubt who betrayed her. Jared's demons come from a past that haunts him. I can't wait for you to read these!
by Penelope Douglas
This book is told in Tate's POV. She is the heroine of this story and trust me when I tell you, it's a heartbreaking and crazy intense read.

(Can't wait for the giveaway to end to read this one? The buy links are on my review page.)
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.
Until You (Fall Away #1.5)
by Penelope Douglas
This book is told from Jared's POV. He's the hero of this story and I can say with absolute certaintly that if you didn't like him in the first book, you'll change your mind in this one. I did! And if you liked him in the first book, you're gonna LOVE him in this one. We get inside his head and though it's a minefield in there, it also opens your eyes to all the hurt he endured and makes you feel for him. You're going to love this one!
Check out my 5 Star Review!
***This novel contains graphic sexual content and harsh language. It is only appropriate for adult readers age 18+.
Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or so numb that you actually felt high? 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.
I love her so much that I hate her. 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. The sight of her centers me, and I can pool all of my anger into her. Engaging her, challenging her, bullying her...they are my food, my air, and the last part of me that feels anything human.
But she left. She went to France for a year, and came back a different girl.
Now, when I push, she pushes back.
