Fallen Crest Series (0.5-4) by Tijan

I will admit that I reluctantly picked up the first book in this series based on the recommendation of a friend of mine that has questionable taste in books. I didn’t really feel like reading a book about high school drama and whiny rich kids and based on the first couple reviews I read on Goodreads that’s what it seemed like this series was going to be but I was so wrong. I’m not saying that there isn’t high school drama in this but it’s not what you expect. This takes everything to the next level and these books are so well written with a fast pace that once you pick up the first one you won’t want to put it down. 

My absolute favorite thing about this series is how well the characters and their intertwining relationships are developed. If all of Tijan’s book have this good of character development you can now consider me a lifelong Tijan fan. 

I’ve been reading a lot of series lately where each book in the series follows a different character but the Fallen Crest books are different. The primary focus of all the books is the story of Mason, Logan, and Samantha. This was a refreshing change. It’s nice to see a story that is so well developed that it can be told in 5 full length novels without the reader getting bored. 

I absolutely cannot wait for #5 to come out this year. #4 leaves off on kind of a cliffhanger so I am anxiously awaiting that final installment (and praying that it ends with a lengthy epilogue.) I also saw something on Goodreads about a possible Logan novel and a Nate novella…. I hope that rumor is true.

Mason (0.5) - Mason Kade is not known to be nice. He is ruthless, manipulative, and unforgiving. Most will say that he is an a**hole and he is to those that cross him or cross his loved ones. However, he does not want to be who he is. He does not enjoy hurting others, but there is no limit to the lengths he will go to protect himself and his brother.

This is the story of how he came to be and this is why so many love Mason Kade.

Fallen Crest High (1) - Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend her school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now Samantha 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.

Fallen Crest Family (2) - Samantha and Mason are together. Everyone knows it. Not everyone is dealing with it. While Mason’s ready to give them the middle finger, there’s one not going away. Her mother. Threats are issued. Ultimatums are given. Even blackmail is used, but only Samantha can put a stop to Analise. However, when a trauma from her past is triggered, she may not have the courage or strength to do what’s needed. If she doesn’t, Mason’s future could be destroyed.

Fallen Crest Alternative Version (2.1) - This book was originally written to be the sequel to Fallen Crest High. It was scrapped and not used. Fallen Crest Family was written instead as the number two book in the Fallen Crest Series. However; this version was posted on the author's page for free reading as a thank you to her readers. After reading what she posted, enough fans requested this story to be published so here it is. This book is not meant to be promoted or a part of the Fallen Crest Series. It has been published at the readers' requests and it is for them to enjoy. With all this said, please enjoy. The original chapters are still posted for free reading.

Fallen Crest Public (3) - 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.

Fallen Fourth Down (4) - My mother tried to destroy me. She doesn’t exist to me anymore and my father, the one who raised me and the biological one, are both works in progress. The only two people that I can trust are Mason and Logan, and they’re the two people who I could lose. It won’t happen. I won’t let it. No matter the truth, no matter who loves me, I won’t let anything or anyone come between us.
They’re my world. They’re my life.
They’re my family.
