FALLEN FOURTH DOWN

BOOK FOUR

CHAPTER ONE

Logan loves me.

Tate’s words had been haunting me for three months. They could destroy everything. I already lost one family; I didn’t want to lose another. It would fuck everything up if my soul mate’s brother loved me. I thought about those words even now, sitting in bed as Mason slept next to me. As I watched him sleep, tears threatened to spill.

The fear, terror, paralyzing horror—you name it, I felt it—surged up in me again. Mason was leaving for college today. This was the day that would start my most challenging year ever.

Mason had become my rock, my soul, my way of living. Some say that I depended on him too much, but I didn’t give a damn. He and his brother, Logan, protected me when everyone had abandoned me. If Logan did love me, everything would be destroyed. The family unit we had would be gone. Jealousy and mistrust would take its place. I couldn’t shake the fear that Mason would follow through on a threat he said a year ago: No girl would come between him and his brother.

Well. Hello. Here I am.

He opened his eyes, and it was like he’d been awake the whole time. His green eyes looked right into me, like he always did, immediately alert and focused, and he reached over. Trailing a hand up my arm, he tugged the blanket down, then curved his hand around my waist. He pulled me down, and asked, “What’s wrong?”

He positioned me so I was laying on top of him, and I just savored being with him. Mason Kade was beautiful to look at and even more beautiful to touch. He was all muscle, so solid and powerful, all right beneath me. He was over six feet tall. Sculpted broad shoulders. His back was contoured, and his muscles tapered down to a trim waist, making him look like a perfect specimen. With black hair cut in a crew cut, chiseled cheekbones, a strong jaw, and a perpetual smirk that tugged at the corner of his mouth, he could’ve been a model. He wasn’t. Instead, he was the future star wide receiver for Cain University’s football team.

He’d been a god in Fallen Crest. He and Logan both were. I’d endured hell over the last year just because I was his girlfriend, but he was going to a Division One school. That meant his games would be televised nationally. ESPN coverage. Future NFL talks.

“Hey,” he murmured, his nose nuzzling my neck. His arms tightened their hold on me, pulling me tighter on top of him. “Talk to me.”

“You’re leaving. Enough said right there.”

“Sam.”

I shook my head. We’d been inseparable over the summer. I wasn’t sure if it was on either side, or more from me. I should tell him my fear, what Tate said to me, but I couldn’t. Couples are supposed to tell each other the bad stuff, even if it might hurt. I knew Mason would want me to tell him, but my vocal cords shut down. I couldn’t say a word.

I wanted it to go away. Logan didn’t actually love me. It was all a lie or a horrible joke.

“Hey,” he murmured again, catching my chin and turning me so I was looking right into his gaze. “Tell me what’s going on? I know something’s up. You’ve been off all summer, running more than usual.” He paused. “What is it?”

Tell him. Just tell him, let the chips fall how they’re supposed to. Then his voice came back in my head, “I’m not going to let anyone get in between my brother and me.”

I couldn’t say anything. I was a coward.

“Sam?” He cupped the side of my face, and his thumb brushed a tear aside. “Everything will be fine. We’re going to talk every night. Eleven at night, every night. It’s set in stone for me, no matter what. And you’re in a good place. David was a fuck up before, but he’s coming around. He’s trying to be a good father to you, and you have Malinda; she’s awesome. Analise is still in that treatment center. My dad said she’s going to be there for a long time. Logan’s across the road. There’s no Kate. No one will mess with you this year, and if they do, just tell Logan. He’ll deal with them. You and I are good. There’s nothing to worry about. I love you.” He sat up. As he did, he held me in the air, holding me in place, and he rested against the headboard. I was placed back down, straddling him. Feeling the strength of his muscles underneath me, a rush of adrenalin went through me.

My hand fell to his waist, lingered there, and he trembled under my touch. That was me. That power over him, was all me. He was mine. So many wanted him, but he was all mine. I let that filter in. That gave me reassurance. That made me feel like I was on top of the world, having him love me so much. When I thought about that and felt Mason’s love, Tate’s words were shoved to the back of my mind.

What she said didn’t matter. It couldn’t.

“Assholes, get up!” Logan’s voice came from the hallway, and he pounded a fist on Mason’s door. “He’s not just yours today, Sam. You have to share. He’s my brother, and he’s leaving me too.” He pounded again on the door. “This is your thirty minute notice. You have a half hour to do your deed, ride him hard, and then get dressed. I want my time with him.”

Mason’s chest moved as a laugh came from him. His hands went to my legs, and he pressed them down, moving me so I was grinding on him, and he said back, “You want to ride me?”

There was a brief pause before Logan’s response. “Only if Sam isn’t getting the job done. I’ll pull on my brother shorts and make you feel all girly and pleasured.”

I rolled my eyes.

Mason called back, “Go suit up.”

Logan groaned, and his voice muffled through the door. “How did this conversation take this turn? This is very weird.”

I shook my head and yelled back, “They always do with you. You’re the common denominator.”

Logan laughed. “Denominator. Don’t you mean dominator? Come to think of it, take your time. Where’s Kris? I feel like finding my own dominator. I like being submissive. It makes me feel special and precious all at the same time.” As he kept talking, his voice faded when he walked down the hallway. Then he called back, from further down, “Be done in two hours, Sam! I call dibs with my brother after that.”

Mason chuckled, and the sound of it acted like a caress, rushing through me and making my insides curl. He cupped the back of my head, anchoring me as he looked into my eyes again. “Everything will be fine. I promise.”

I wanted to believe him. “I know.” But I didn’t. I should tell him, but I couldn’t. Not yet. It would come out, though, and that was the day my world would be threatened. I closed my eyes again and let my head fall forward so it was resting softly against his. Moving to kiss me gently, he whispered, “I love you, Samantha.”

“I love you, Mason.” I would relish this moment with him, go with him to help him move into his room, and I’d come back to start my senior year. It’d be me and Logan in Fallen Crest.

I’d have to figure everything out later, one day at a time. With that final decision made, I moved to meet his lips with mine and applied pressure. He groaned, meeting my command for more, and it wasn’t long before he slid into me. As he did, I held onto him. I didn’t want to let him go.

Review: Fallen Crest Home (Fallen Crest #6) by Tijan

“THIS IS WORTH THE PAIN,” HE SAID. -Fallen Crest Home

“Be normal! Be boring even! At least you’ll be alive then!” -Fallen Crest Home

Fallen Crest Home (Fallen Crest High, #6)Fallen Crest Home by Tijan

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I want to say tons of things about this book because there are tons of things about this book that made me feel all tons of emotions in a short period of time. It pains me when I think about Fallen Crest’s last book because I don’t think I will ever be ready to say goodbye. Fallen Crest Series has been one of the top favorites of mine! I love the Kades too much I don’t think I can ever let go. I love this series for so many reasons and sometimes I question myself for loving this book too much. Too much that sometimes I think it’s unhealthy. FC is the most angsty book I ever read. I get chills every time I read any of the book in this series. No other book gave me chills like that–from page 1 up to the end, I was never at ease. Reading this book was like waiting for a bomb to explode. I love Mason and Sam. Nate, Mark, and I have to say that Logan and Matteo added super spice to the cuisine, but of course, Logan will always be the epic one. Wit and sarcasm has always been Logan’s forte and he sure know how to throw them and you’ll find yourself laughing even in the middle of a tense situation. Mason and Sam always give me the heartburn, Logan makes it easier to bear. The combination of these hardcore characters made this book so appealing to me, they kept me entertained. That’s one of the things I love about this series and one thing I admire about Tijan. She hasn’t let me down yet. The characters and their bonds, they are like no other. Tight. Real. Haven’t seen anything like it even in all the books I already came across with. And the ending. I kind of figured out that she’ll end it like that, but still, I was open-mouthed. I should’ve expected it… but WOW! 10 awesome stars!!! Give me the next book asap!

Haven’t started the book yet?

Fallen Crest will soon come to an end. Just one more book! If you haven’t started this series, I suggest that you start it as soon as you have time. I totally enjoyed this and I highly recommend the books especially if you’re a fan of angsty, sexy, heart-thumping books that are hard to put down. If you love badass characters and stories that are challenging to read–dysfunctional, dark, maybe twisted, sexy and full of angsts, this book will surely satisfy your cravings. Fallen Crest is YA/NA Contemporary Romance that revolves around the life of Samantha Strattan whose life was suddenly turned upside down when her mother decided to leave her father for another man. This man whom her mother fell in love with has two sons, Mason and Logan Kade, who hated her and whom she hated but eventually grown to love. Their bond is unbelievably strong and it never seize to amaze me how tight their relationships are. “You attack one. You attack all. That was our motto.”

You’ll also meet other badass characters–some were friends but the majority were enemies, you can’t be sure who to trust or who to watch out for. It is a roller coaster kind of feeling and you’ll surely enjoy every minute of it.

Here is the list of books in the series:

0.5 Mason
1- Fallen Crest High
2- Fallen Crest Family
3- Fallen Crest Public
4- Fallen Fourth Down
5- Fallen Crest University
5.5 Logan
6- Fallen Crest Home
7- Untitled (To be release on May 2017)

Fallen Crest have plenty of things that are opposite to what I believe in. The characters that I’ve grown to love and care about are the opposite of the kind of friends I have in my life. They did things that in normal life I wouldn’t even dare to do. When I first started reading Fallen Crest High, I didn’t expect to love it as much as I did. Sometimes I wonder what is it that really made me enjoy this series.

Francois Muriac once said, “If you would tell me the heart of a man, tell me not what he reads but what he rereads.” I have plenty of favorite books but I don’t reread them all. I only have a couple of titles that I enjoy rereading and Fallen Crest is one of these. Now, I don’t know what that says about my character or my “heart” because I don’t really wanna know. I’m pretty sure I couldn’t read this book without recoiling IF I were still in my High School years. Fallen Crest isn’t the sweet, romantic, cheesy kind of book that I used to read and enjoy back then. It was far from that kind of book actually. It is dark. It is dysfunctional. It is wild. Fallen Crest High is the first book that I read that made me question myself about things. It may be funny but it’s the truth. And as I continue to love this series, I began to open myself up to other kinds of books that I don’t usually read and aren’t actually in my comfort zone. I continue learning. I began to realize that when you read books, maybe they don’t really change you but they show you who you are. They open your eyes by making you question yourself, what you believe in, what you stand up for in life. They reveal something that existed on you. Whatever it is that made me fall in love with these books, I am thankful for it. The series may come to its end but its influence won’t. If there is one thing I will treasure most about this series is the sense of family, loyalty, and friendship. What they say is true. Family isn’t all about blood. They are the ones who were there with you at your lowest, the times when you had no one else. And when someone else betray you, they are the ones who got your back. They will always come for you no matter what.

Review: Finding Kyler by Siobhan Davis

findigkylerFinding Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #1)

By Siobhan Davis

Release Date: January 9th 2017

Summary:

Two fractured hearts and a forbidden love they can’t deny.
You shouldn’t want what you can’t have.
Faye Donovan has lost everything. After her parent’s tragic death, she’s whisked away from her home in Ireland when an unknown uncle surfaces as her new guardian.

Dropped smack-dab into the All-American dream, Faye should feel grateful. Except living with her wealthy uncle, his fashion-empire-owning wife, and their seven screwed-up sons is quickly turning into a nightmare—especially when certain inappropriate feelings arise.

Kyler Kennedy makes her head hurt and her heart race, but he’s her cousin.

He’s off limits.

And he’s not exactly welcoming—Kyler is ignorant, moody, and downright cruel at times—but Faye sees behind the mask he wears, recognizing a kindred spirit.

Kyler has sworn off girls, yet Faye gets under his skin. The more he pushes her away, the more he’s drawn to her, but acting on those feelings risks a crap-ton of prejudice, and any whiff of scandal could damage the precious Kennedy brand.

Concealing their feelings seems like the only choice.

But when everyone has something to hide, a secret is a very dangerous thing.

******
Full of scandal, dysfunctional families, teen soap-opera-style angst and drama, secrets and lies, mean girls and catfights, lust and love, book one in the unputdownable Kennedy Boys series will have you flipping the pages’ way beyond bedtime!

Only recommended to readers aged 17+ due to mature content and language.

Oh wow. This book! The feels! Fallen Crest Series and The Royals fans, you’ll gonna lurrrrv this book!

This is my first book by Siobhan Davis and I was thrilled that I got the chance to read it. I was hesitant at first but I’m glad I said yes for the review!

Dysfunctional families, high school drama, uber rich male characters that are top to toe gorgeous and absolute swoon-worthy plus badass female lead who is stubborn and feisty but kind and never backs down. I know you want this story and you wouldn’t want to not meet Kyler and the rest of the Kennedys!

Angsty, achingly sexy, and heartbreakingly twisted. The writing is beautiful, I was hooked from the beginning! Maybe I am a part twisted for loving this book, but I think it shows reality and that it is not impossible to happen in real life. You don’t choose who you fall for even if you know it’s forbidden. I felt sad and heartbroken for these seven guys who needed a good role model in their lives. All of them were looking for attention and love that it made them do stupid things. These guys are all messed up in different ways and you would want to save them. I’m a fan of books that have strong characters especially when it comes to lead roles and the way the story is being told is a big deal for me as well.  I am a sucker for beautiful writings and badass heroines. Lucky for me, this book did not disappoint. Faye is a strong main character that I immediately liked. She’s witty and sassy, other than being hot and stunning. Kyler is a bad boy with a good heart underneath. You’ll gonna love him. There are times that you will want to smack him in the face, other times you will want to comfort him. Faye and Kyler made the mistake of falling in love and now, as if being cousins isn’t hell enough for the two of them, their world turned upside down again in the end. Even though I kinda want to hate the author for the cliffy ending she threw at my face, I enjoyed the book as a whole.

Finding Kyler is one titillating ride–from the start to the peak and down to the torturous, cliffhanger ending. I couldn’t put it down! I loved this book and it’s killing me knowing I have to wait for the next book. To me who is an ultimate fan of Tijan’s Fallen Crest Series, it was hard not to compare them. I dove into the book knowing that it was being compared to FC and yes, I’ve seen the resemblance, BUT it’s NOT a copy of the series. It’s more like The Royals by Erin Watts to me and I really liked that series as well. It is actually a mix of both but with a more serious issue thrown in the mixture. I am not a fan of taboo related books, but having read Finding Kyler made me feel like I am a bit twisted myself because I enjoyed the book as much as I hate to admit it. Yes, it’s taboo. Incest. Yet I feel like there is something more to the story than what the author let me believe. A twist of fate isn’t impossible in a world full of lies and betrayals, high school and dysfunctional family drama. All throughout the book, I didn’t feel comfortable and I don’t think you should be comfortable! Things are wrong that even modern society won’t approve. Comfort zone? Forget about your comfort zone when you read this book.

Writing a story like Finding Kyler must take guts because writing a book with taboo repelled most readers and they are usually subjected to bad criticism. But I think the author writes without hesitation or fear of being judged at all. It felt to me like she wrote what was necessary for the story to make the readers feel the excitement and the heartbreak at the same time. With a big cliffhanger ending, Dear Author has lots of explaining to do. I can’t wait to see how she will turn the wheels of the story. I can’t wait to see how she will make everything right for these beautifully broken characters. They need to be saved and I’m agonizing over about how their story will end.

5 STARS for the Kennedys!

Cole by Tijan
Release Date: February 13th, 2017

Synopsis:

I shouldn’t have remembered him.

He was just a guy who walked through a restaurant. I didn’t know his name. We never made eye contact. There was no connection between us at all.

But I could feel him.

The tingle down my spine. The command in his presence. The snap of tension in the air around him. That was the first time I saw him, and I was captivated.

The second time was different.

He was in the mysterious back elevator of my apartment building. Our eyes met for a fleeting second before the doors closed, and I was staggered. My breath was robbed. My senses on high alert. My body hummed.

That was just the beginning.

He was the leader of the mafia. I was about to fall in love with him, and his name…

Cole Mauricio.

Review: After We Break by Katy Regnery

The moment I stepped into the world that Katy Regnery created, I was instantly transported to the beauty and warmth of it. I always find her stories tender and heartwarming.

After We Break is a romantic story about Violet and Zach. Violet was a free-spirited girl who loves poetry and made Zach felt alive. Zach was an awkward, quiet guy who brought out the best in her. His music inspired her to write beautiful poetry and her poems inspired Zach to be the best in his music. But in one warm perfect day, something happened and everything changed. They lost each other for 9 years since that day, until fate brought them together again at Deep Haven.

I loved Z. I loved the little boy who hadn’t known love. I loved the awkward teenager who  was told he was loved but didn’t know what to do about it. Most especially I loved the man who will do everything to love and be loved again in return. And while Violet found it too difficult to say the words he long to hear, it seemed to be easy for Zach to show his feelings for her (I wanted to smack her head a couple of times by the way!).

I didn’t know how to express my feelings about this book in the exact way it made me feel. I searched the right word for the word “kilig” (it’s a Filipino word used to describe a feeling of romantic excitement). I googled but there is no english word that equally give the same weight or meaning. So I’m going to use this word for the first time in years being a book reviewer. For those non-Filipino readers who are not familiar with the word, I even copy here the meaning of “kilig” taken from the article I read that also corresponds to what Oxford Dictionary says:

Kilig, when used as an adjective, refers to what a person feels when exhilarated by an exciting or romantic experience; thrilled, elated, gratified. When used as a noun, kilig means exhilaration or elation caused by an exciting or romantic experience; an instance of this, a thrill.

This book. This book made me kilig, but not the kind that made me shout or giggle loudly. It was the kind that  tugs at your heart, something that you can feel up to the bones and make you happy while at the same time you feel a dull ache in your heart. The kilig kind that makes you secretly smile because you know and feel something that only you can understand.

I was surprised to see that this book has gotten reviews that is less than what it truly deserve. After We Break is a beautiful story and the words flow smoothly and effortlessly. This book is definitely one of Katy’s bests.

This is a story of heartbreak, mistakes, regrets, and how love can make it right again. Most of all it’s a story of unexpected friendship that turned into something more and real but somehow needs to be tested by years of separation and longing. I watched how these two people love each other but somehow find it so desperately hard to be together. I listened to the song “Morning Has Broken” over and over again while reading this book, replaying the scenes in my head. Until now, I still feel the ache in my chest whenever I hear the song. The story still tugs at my heartstrings. I loved Vile and Z and their love story. It can make you believe in second chances and in the reality that sometimes you just can’t un-love a person. Sometimes there is no such thing as “I will love you until I don’t anymore,” because sometimes you just can’t really stop.

5 Stars

(First published as Playing For Love At Deep Haven)

Summary:

She was the girl.

The only girl.

The only girl I ever wanted.

The only girl I ever loved.

The only girl I could ever love.

And I killed it.

I destroyed it.

I threw her love away.

For nine years, I’ve kept the memory of her locked in the deepest corner of my heart…all the while hating myself for what I did to her.

To us.

Now, without warning, she’s walked back into my life.

I’m covered in tats.

She’s covered in Polo.

I write heavy metal songs.

She writes chick-lit.

My eyes are angry.

Her eyes are sad.

I still long for her with every fiber of my being.

But I have no idea if she feels the same.

I guess it’s time to find out.

Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan

Published: August 22nd 2016

Synopsis:

He told me to ‘settle, girl.’
He asked if ‘something was wrong with me?’
He said I was an ‘easy target.’
That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.
I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha.

He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother.

Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming.

I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?


Kevin was kissing another girl. And he wasn’t just kissing her–he was inhaling her.


When you saw your stepbrother kissing another girl, and you’ve been in love with the said stepbrother for years… you run. But make sure to bump into the hottest fraternity guy–Caden. Caden Banks. Beautiful Caden Banks.

Summer Stoltz is a college freshman who’ve been crushing and pining for her stepbrother for years, even before her dad married Kevin’s mom. When she entered college, she hoped to finally be together with him. But sometimes some things don’t go well as planned. Especially when dear stepbrother end up being a big jerk and he has a scorching hot fraternity brother who always appear in the right place at the right moment, and saving her butt every single time. So, who is Caden Banks? He’s the Anti-Stepbrother.

I always love angsty books! Books that can make my heart race. Books that can make my heart hurt and flutter at the same time. These feelings I get from a book are one of the nicest and certainly one of the best things I love about reading. This is why I love Tijan’s books. Whenever I will dive into her stories, it’s like preparing myself for the next trainwreck. The adrenaline is too high, it’s almost intoxicating.

Along with the college drama, the characters in this book also cope up with past hurts and unresolved family issues that has always been one of the interesting flavors in Tijan’s books. At times, it was heartbreaking and sad, but there was never a lack of sexiness throughout the story. Though I expected to be blown away, I wasn’t prepared for the different waves of emotions as the characters played around friendship, brotherhood, love and family drama. I also appreciate that this book wasn’t an instalove romance, but a growing friendship with a simmering love underneath. There were many good things I loved about this book, but mostly I loved Caden’s character. He surprised me the most. I thought he was a bad guy with a good heart, but no, he was a good guy with a big heart. Caden Banks is one freaking hot guy. Caden and Summer is a tandem to watch out for. You’ll love this couple and you’ll wish there was more! I don’t think Caden and Summer are made for just a single novel. I believe they are cut for more and bigger stories. I want a second book! It was like reading Mason and Sam from Fallen Crest but different. And it’s a good kind of different. It just have this familiar feel, the same feel I get from Fallen Crest Series. Readers who enjoy Tijan’s books will surely enjoy this one. I just loved this book! I read it in less than a day!

Anti-Stepbrother will bring you to a world of college drama, fraternity and brotherhood, where there are lies and betrayals but also where unexpected friendship and love may be found. It was a one wild roller coaster ride.

About the Author

tijan bio

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.
