Fallen Crest is back with a vengeance!

Samantha, Mason, and Logan are all together and united with one common enemy: Sebastian Park, the king of fraternity douchebags.

With professional football scouts eyeing his every move, Mason Kade has to walk the line for the first time in his life. Any move he makes against Sebastian has to be perfect and under the radar. One mistake, and his career is over.

Sebastian has other plans. Mason’s career isn’t his target—not even close. Wanting to destroy Mason completely, Sebastian knows he must hit him where it hurts the most: Samantha, who doesn’t give a rat’s ass that she’s the target.

Sam is bound and determined to protect Mason herself, no matter the cost, but what if the cost is beyond her imagination? What if this time, the villain wins?

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Ok so please don’t shoot me or murder me in my sleep, but I need to say this… I had such a hard time getting into this book. I thought that was pretty significant since I absolutely loved everything Tijan thus far. It did, however, take  me about 25% until I finally felt committed into finishing the story.

I think the majority of it was because it has been such a long since I read the last installment. It was up to the point where I might have forgotten some of the key elements that make this series fantastic but as the story moved along I remembered every single detail that got me hooked in the first place. It was this unparalleled  devotion amongst the key characters – Mason, Sam, Logan, and Nate that caught me.

The entire gang is now off to college. They are all finally back together again and while this should have been a beautiful experience for everyone concerned  this  isn’t so. So long are the petty high school catfights. They are in the big leagues now which means bigger rivals.

If you remember from the last book Sebastian Park has it bad for Mason and he will go to great lengths just to obtain his revenge. Sebastian is smart. He knows that the best way to get to Mason is through the ones he cares about the most.

“When something happens to one of us, it happens to all of us…”

Needless to say, I can’t tell you how impressed I was with how Sebastian character was portrayed. This guy was relentless and he sure did make for one worthy adversary.  In conjunction to this, the twists and turns are endless and very much unexpected. “Fallen Crest University” will definitely keep you guessing!

If you asked me what I loved most about the book… I would have to say it’s the magnificent relationship(s). You already know from the previous books  how close Sam, Mason, and Logan are but in this story we witness how deep their relationships really go. Each one of them would do just about anything for the other. Their status, careers, money, and education didn’t really matter to them as long as they were together … that was everything.

Although I did have issues in the beginning I am sure as hell glad that I pushed through because “Fallen Crest University” is one hell of a story. The remarkable love and loyalty that the characters demonstrated in this installment will definitely solidify the series in my memory forever.
