I love a good romance and Tijan delivers on that with her Fallen Crest Series. We first meet our motly crew of characters, Samantha, Mason and Logan; at a gas station. You know that stereotypical gas station that apparently everyone in high school stops at. The Sak n Pak in Vmars is a good example. Samantha’s mom has left her dad for Mason and Logan’s much richer father. That is really all that they know about each other, but from that point on things get nothing but interesting. There are a ton of great characters in this book. Analise, Sam’s really irresponsible, wanna be trophy wife mom. James Kade, Mason and Logan’s cheating father with seemingly more money than sense. David, Sam’s father and the local private school football coach.
Samantha is an emotional mess having just moved out of her home to move in with her mom’s new man. She has a crappy boyfriend and a crappy pair of best friends. While Mason and Logan are an interesting, loyal and somewhat complex pair of brothers that are not about to be lied to by any adult. Mason is a silent, watchful type. He seems to be biding his time for the first quarter of the book. Then came the pivotal moment when Sam goes from passively to actively dealing with the changes in her life. She has had enough and she shows a spark that not only captures Mason’s interest, but it captured mine as a reader.
I can’t wait to see what Tijan does in Fallen Fourth down, which will hopefully come out later this year. Sam is a great match for Mason and I hope that Logan finds his match as well. The first book details family dynamics and how they deal with them to become a family by choice rather than blood. I love books like this and a great bonus is that right now Fallen Crest High is free on Amazon. Go download it and give Tijan a try. Also like her on Facebook. She is always writing POV scenes from her books for her fans.
A little bit about the author:
I didn’t begin writing until after undergraduate college. There’d been storylines and characters in my head all my life, but it came to a boiling point one day and I HAD to get them out of me. So the computer was booted up and I FINALLY felt it click. Writing is what I needed to do. After that, I had to teach myself how to write. I can’t blame my teachers for not teaching me all those years in school. It was my fault. I was one of the students that was wishing I was anywhere but at school! So after that day, it took me lots of work until I was able to put together something that resembled a novel. I’m hoping I got it right since someone must be reading this profile! And I hope you keep enjoying my future stories.
