Fallen Crest High by Tijan
4 Filled with Drama Stars
I’m going to start this by saying I love Tijan I’ve been reading her for years. This is the first time I’ve started this series not because the storyline didn’t interest me or anything but manly because there’s a lot of books associated with this. This series runs 7 books and then an origin story for Mason. That’s time consuming and if you’re like me you must read a whole series before you can move on, so I had to make sure I had the time to really delve into this. Okay now that’s out of the way the actual review.
Another of those knots unraveled in my stomach again. Why did it happen with him? And at times when I felt he was being honest.
Sam is dealt a lot of bad cards in this story. I don’t want to say to much because I don’t want to spoil anything but know it’s one thing after another for her. Her character in general is completely closed off. It’s as if she shut down all her feelings regarding everything. It makes her seem cold but at the same time with everything that happens to her I can understand. It’s definitely a defense mechanism so she doesn’t go crazy. Another defense for her is running she uses it to deal with her feelings and shut down her emotions. Not the healthiest way to deal, but she does recognize that in the book.
What I love about her is that she doesn’t care, which in turn causes those around her not to know how to deal with her. This is actually kind of refreshing, yes, she’s a high school girl so you’d expect more whiny-ness or drama, but you get nothing from her except anger on occasion and irritation. It’s as if all other emotions just don’t exist for her. This is also why she has absolutely no idea how beautiful she is. She doesn’t care enough to know, and it doesn’t matter to her either way.
She doesn’t want anyone to know that she knows the Kades because they are a big deal and she genuinely wants to just be left alone. Which is different for them, because they are used to people trying to be friends with them or trying to hook up with them. That’s why they end up taking her under their wing and having her back, which she desperately needs. This girl is surrounded by drama not because of anything she’s done, and she doesn’t bring it on herself. It’s just because of who she is and the jealously surrounding those who are supposed to be there for her.
I hesitated and held my breath. He looked like a statue; a god made of stone with the light’s shadow on him. His eyes were intense as he seemed to stare through me, into me.
How to describe Mason??? He’s intense, strong and Alpha to the extreme. He’s completely loyal to those that he deems worthy. He’s sexy without even having to try. I could feel the tension every time he and Sam were in the same room, it was stifling and exciting waiting to see what’s going to happen. He’s stunning and every girl wants to be with him, and every guy wants to be him even if they hate him. He and Sam were a slow burning flame, you could feel it every single moment they were together, and it keep you on the edge of your seat waiting for their inevitable combustion. I absolutely loved the way Mason handles Sam and those around her. He is Alpha protective and stakes his claim of her in front of everyone on multiple occasions. I loved it!!
“Have you been watching?” This is why I’ll never do what you have to do. I have her. I won’t have to dream about her.”
This is a stellar start to a series, Tijan has this ability to draw you into a story so completely you lose track of where you are. You become lost in the world she’s created, and you don’t even want to come up for air. This story is no different. I can’t even really pinpoint which part keep me so enthralled it’s the whole story. I need to know what happens to these characters and where they are going to go. There’s a lot of loose ends in this that I’m going to assume get tied up as the series continues, so again if you don’t have time to complete this series just know that so you are prepared. So sit back and enjoy the ride.
Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend Samantha’s school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now she has to live with them. The problem is that she doesn’t care at all: about them, about her friends, about her cheating boyfriend, or even about her parent’s divorce. But maybe that’s a good thing. Maybe change is a good thing.
This book contains adult/mature young adult situations.
