Sam’s first day at Fallen Crest Public doesn’t go well. Some girls want to be her. Some girls want to destroy her. And some just don’t like her. All in all, despite being protected by Mason and Logan, it’s still only the strong survive. Sam will not only have to survive, she needs to learn how to conquer too, but there’s another battle growing. Things are about to come to a disastrous end between the towns, Roussou and Fallen Crest. Sam’s other main dilemma? Keeping Mason and Logan from getting arrested or hospitalized.
“She’s the love of my life.”
My heart was pumping so damn fast. I needed to see her.
David was searching my eyes.
I let him see the truth. I needed her. That was the only way.
Ok before I start this review I need to get something off my chest…my name is Tracy and I am addicted to Tijan’s books!!
Ok now we have that out of the way I can tell you about this book. Now I am tempted to just say ‘WOW’ and leave it at that but you came to read this so I better make it good.
I honestly think that Fallen Crest series has been fantastic so far…and this one just added to the amazingness.
Mason returns in this book…thankfully! I am sad I read this book after christmas as Im going to have to wait a whole year to add him to my Santa list. He is hot and powerful and sexy and deep and loving and..and…and did I mention hot! He is there backing up his girl and his friends being loyal to the end as he always does. I loved reading his POV, getting into his mind really made me know him more….which led to loving him more. I know, I didn’t think that was possible!
And of course we have Sam….if you mention Mason you know she is somewhere not far behind! What a lucky girl she is, I know she might not see it but having a man like Mason looking out for you must feel amazing! She comes into her own in this book I think, she appears stronger and doesn’t get pushed about as much so I think people will like her better in this one. I mean the stuff she deals with in this book would have anyone running but she pulls up her big girl panties and deals! Go Sam!!!
And then theres Logan! I don’t care what anyone says I find Logan hilarious….the stuff he comes out with would have me cringing half the time and trying not to pee myself with laughter the other half! Now don’t underestimate Logan, he is a lot more than that. He is loyal beyond and normal person, if you are family or a friend then you are pretty much protected forever. He has a bond with Sam that I don’t think anyone could break, much to Mason dismay sometimes I think! lol
The drama in this book was just like….UGH!!!! And poor Sam seemed to be that main target for it all, I mean how do you get so unlucky??
There are the Tomboy Princesses who are out for blood after they are dropped from the in crowd because Kate *cough the bitch cough* can’t face the fact she can’t get Mason. So she does what she does best…and goes after Sam and everyone who wants to be friends with her!
Then you have the Broudou brothers who have a grudge to settle with Mason and Logan….and the way they want to go about it is through Masons girlfriend!
Tate…is it wrong to want to punch a fictional character? Because if its wrong then I don’t want to be right! I hate this girl and I hope she gets her ass kicked to the kerb by Logan….in a really public and traumatising way!
And unfortunately you have Analise…man do I hate that woman! What she has done to Sam and what Sam is still having to deal with, I mean no child should ever be treated like that by a parent! I don’t know if Sam will ever recover fully from the wrath of that woman.
Now I won’t dwell to long on the ending but it left me…..well it left me wishing I hadn’t read this book until the next one was out….thats all I will say!!!
All in all I loved this book! Yes its about drama at high school so I really shouldn’t enjoy it so much…..but I do and I have no shame in admitting it to anyone. The writing again is amazing, I was drawn ingot his story and I couldn’t leave. Even when I couldn’t read I was thinking about them all, I mean I was acting like they were real people….Im pretty sure my husband was close to committing me!! If you have read the first two parts of this series and enjoyed them then you will love this one….and if you haven’t read the series you soooooo need to get on it!!! I mean they are amazing! I don’t have a lot series that I gush about…single books yes but not series…..this one I will gush about! Read it….read it…..read it!!!! ❤
My hand tightened on my bag as I crossed the parking lot. Logan’s car was still parked next to mine. What was my brother still doing here? Nate’s car was here too. Things were cold between the two, but they could joke around with each other. Still, I didn’t see them hanging out together, and I hadn’t seen either of them in the locker room. Coach needed to talk to me, and most of the guys were gone when I came out.
“Hey,” Logan spoke up, straightening from his Escalade.
I frowned. My little brother looked tired. “You need to stop with this whole sex marathon you’ve got going on.” Unlocking my car, I tossed my bag inside.
Logan rolled his eyes. “Whatever. I hear you and Sam going at it all the time. Don’t you guys take a fucking break?”
I grunted. Nice choice of words. “I can have all the sex I want with her. Know why? Because she’s my girlfriend, and I love her. I know my dick can be in her, and it’s safe. She’s safe. We’re not going to be having little Kades running around here anytime soon. Can you say the same?”
“You’re such a dick.”
“A dick that cares about you. Stop all the screwing around. You’ll catch something or you’re going to end up with a kid.”
“What’s your problem?” Logan ran a hand through his hair.
“You’re my problem. I mean it, Logan. Stop screwing around. Find a girl, get some feelings for her, and be rabbits.” He was pissed. We both knew it, but I wasn’t going to ask for the motivation of his sudden marathon. “There has to be some girl in this town that you could date who’s not Tate.”
Logan shot me a dark look. “Get over yourself. I don’t love her, and you know it.”
I narrowed my eyes, studying him before I relented. “Do whatever you want. Mom’ll love being a grandmother.”
My brother shot me a different look now, one filled with dark humor. “Can you imagine that? Helen quilting little booties for the kid? She’d flip out.”
“If we thought she went nuts after the divorce…” I chuckled. “I’ve got a feeling we haven’t seen nothing yet. She’d go ape-shit.”
“I’d feel bad for whoever the chick would be.” Logan shuddered, laughing at the same time. Then he stopped and studied me for a moment. “What are you going to do about Sam?”
The amusement was gone.
A cruel glint appeared and Logan added, “Mom’s moving back to Fallen Crest. What’s Sam going to do when you leave for college?”
I cursed. “That’s for me and Sam to deal with. You don’t need to worry about it.”
“Screw you, Mason. I care about her, too. We both know Mom’s going to want me to live with her. I, sure as shit, ain’t stepping foot in Dad’s place while he’s got Psychopath Barbie with him, and I’m not letting Sam go back there. No way in hell.”
“No way in hell?” An equally cruel look came over my face as my lips curved in a mocking smirk. “Look at you, already stepping in shoes that aren’t yours.”
“And they’re yours?”

OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES:
Tijan started writing later in life, after she had already graduated college with a different direction in mind and a different degree under her belt. Hitting the brakes on that path, she taught herself how to write a good book and began posting at sites such as Fictionpress, along with Wattpad. After receiving such encouraging messages from readers, she self-published Fallen Crest High and has continued throughout the year. She continues to keep writing NA books!
