While this isn't the review I was going to post today, but I re-read the two books in this series and I decided to do a mini post of book 1!
Fallen Crest High by Tijan
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.
This isn't your average boy meets girl, both fall in love in 2 chapters blah blah, the usual stuff that you sometimes get from contemporary/romance YA, borderline NA. To start off with Sam is with a boyfriend who has cheated on her from almost day one when they started going out three years ago, her best friend being one of those who did and the other knowing & helping them cover it up. Her mother is leaving her father and moving them to her new future husband, who happens to have two sons who are Sam's age, Mason and Logan Kade the two brothers who pretty much do whatever they want and whoever they want.
This book has a lot going on, Sam's family problems, friendship problems, a guy who wants her but she doesn't want him, two hot guys that she has to live with and she doesn't give a dam about them, all she wants to do is run. Running is Sam's way of coping with everything she runs for hours on end, just not wanting to feeling anything any more, I can relate to this, however, not with running but with swimming.
Mason and Logan Kade, I want one (mainly Mason) they are two boys who should be at Fallen Crest Academy not Fallen Crest Public, the guys who can get any girl they want, alcohol whenever they want it, you get the point. This book is messed up, like completely messed up, but so addictive that you couldn't put it down, their families are even messed up so when Sam and Mason start doing things that shouldn't be happening between future step brother & sister, it isn't strange.
I haven't read a book like this before, never, it is addictive, hot romance and the characters don't start having feelings until half-way through the book, which like I said at the start, unusual.
