NEXT TO NEVER by Penelope Douglas • FMR REVIEW

About Next To Never: 

New York Times bestseller Penelope Douglas introduces Quinn, younger sister to Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon, in the latest novella in the series that began with Jared and Tate in Bully....

Quinn Caruthers has several problems.

Her father, Jason, and her three older brothers, Jared, Madoc, and Jaxon.

Under the close watch of the men in her family, Quinn has found it nearly impossible to spread her wings—or even date—without them jumping in to hover. And when a family friend—several years older—from her childhood captures her heart, she knows they’re going to be a problem. Lucas Morrow is a man—experienced, sophisticated, and important. And knowing her brothers, he may as well be forbidden.

But Lucas left town years ago and shows no signs of returning. Quinn knows she shouldn’t wait for him anymore.

But then a package turns up on her doorstep with no return address and its contents reveal family secrets that threaten to turn Quinn’s world upside down. She’s never asked about the tumultuous path of her parents’ romantic history, but she soon learns their happy marriage had a very rocky and passionate start.

As she begins to see things around her with new eyes, Quinn will have to make tough choices about whether she’ll keep waiting…or finally go after what she really wants.


Review by: Amy E 

This is a very unique and different way to tell a story.  It took me by surprise.  I liked getting the back story behind how the parents came together but, I was one of those that didn't realize it wasn't Quinn's story so it threw me off a bit.

The writing was typical Pen Douglas perfection and only made me crave more of Quinn's story and we'll all their stories.  The time line threw me a bit, it didn't quite seem plausible.

It was great to see the old gang in another setting.  Older, wiser, parents but still their wild and do what I please personalities.

4 Stars
