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.

PAPERBACK

Excerpt

I had no time to stop and think.
I had to fight.
I had to hurt.
I had to protect.
Feeling someone behind me, I let loose with the bat, a scream erupting from my throat. Someone caught the bat and wrapped an arm around my waist. I tried kicking out. He dodged my feet and said hurriedly in my ear, “Damn, Strattan. It’s me, Channing. Stop!”
Channing.
He was friendly.
Stop.
I sagged in his arms, looking for Mason. Where was he? He was circling a guy, still fighting.
I started forward, but Channing caught my arm. “Whoa. Chill.”
I growled as I yanked my hand free and started forward again, but Channing grabbed my arm once more.
He got in front of me, holding his other hand up. “Whoa, whoa, whoa. Look. He’s fine. We’re here. He’s got that. Look. Look, Sam.”
My senses began to calm. The black around my eyesight faded. I could see more normally, and the buzzing in my ears subsided. I gulped for breath, tasting salt and dust in my mouth.
Channing was right. Mason’s eyes were deadly, but alert, his mouth set in a flat line. His shoulders were tense, but he looked in control.

Review: Losing Kyler by Siobhan Davis

Losing Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #2)Losing Kyler by Siobhan Davis

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I expect that you already read Finding Kyler by now, if not, I suggest you read it first before diving into this one. This is the second book in The Kennedy Boys series. Finding Kyler left us a huge cliffhanger ending and Losing Kyler picked up exactly where Finding Kyler left off.

I don’t have any negative opinion about this book because I enjoyed it so much and it felt like I didn’t even waited for this sequel at all. As I’ve said, Losing Kyler immediately picked up where the first book ended and the emotional connection was instant. I remembered how I loved the first book! I couldn’t even choose which one I liked better because they were equally satisfying, both are equally addicting.

When Faye moved in with the Kennedys, she was quickly thrown into the family drama. The word “dysfunctional” is an understatement when it comes to this family. The Kennedy seems to be living in full, fat lies and after the revelations in this book, there’s no doubt that things will be more interesting in the next installment.

Faye is a strong girl and I liked her for being badass. She didn’t only fight her demons but she also do everything to protect the people she love. If only loving someone is easy. If only loving Kyler isn’t forbidden.

What I enjoyed mostly about this book is its ability to turn the story into something you didn’t expect. There were lots of twists and bombs along the way. There were plenty of complications, unforgivingly thrown, one after another. It was like the family is cursed and happily ever after isn’t a possibility. Just when you think you’d figured out something, you’ll be given another secret to unfold, another twist in the already twisted lives of the characters. The angst we loved in the first book is still there. The thrill of waiting and finding out whether your favorite characters will have a happy story or not was both exciting and  agitating. There was no boring part for me and I think that was another reason why other readers loved this book too. It was sexy, angsty, twisted and sometimes overwhelming. There were a lot of things that happened in this one sequel alone and I bet there’s more coming in the next one.

Then there was Brad. Maybe seven good looking Kennedy brothers wasn’t enough so Siobhan added Brad into the limelight. I have to admit that giving Brad a lot of exposure made this book even more exciting to read. It was nice to have a decent guy thrown into the picture and knowing Brad will make you love his character. He’s a gentleman. The one that is easily taken for granted. You’ll love him.

Just like Finding Kyler, the ending of this book was another huge cliffhanger! I survived but Keeping Kyler couldn’t get here fast enough and I badly need the happily ever after!

If you loved The Royals and Fallen Crest and looking for another dose of family drama with hot dudes and badass female heroine, try this series and keep up with The Kennedys!

Social Butterfly PR is thrilled to present the Book Reveal for Cole by Tijan.

coleebookcover

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.

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.

My Never-Ending Book Notes (5): After We Break by Katy Regnery

neverennding booknotesMy Never-Ending Book Notes is a Thursday feature about my favorite quotes/notes from the books that I’ve read or currently reading.

Today, I picked something from Katy Regnery’s book:

After We Break is a standalone novel previously published as Playing for Love at Deep Haven.  I personally loved the new title. I’m currently reading this book and I’m loving it! I had to download it after reading the first few pages!


“Violet-like-the-flower,” she repeated in a whisper, staring up at him, looking for the Zach Aubrey she used to know in this muscular, tattooed, pierced, shaggy-haired rocker. It seemed impossible to reconcile the two completely different people. Yale Zach had been skinny and pale–awkward and brooding teenager.

She stepped closer to him and with a sigh of relief, she saw the resemblance. His hair, some of which was held back in a ponytail, was still the dark chestnut color she remembered.

And his eyes. She was close enough to see that his eyes were the same stormy, intense gray.

There you are, her heart whispered.


If you want to know more about the book, here’s the synopsis:

30748333

After We Break by Katy Regnery

Published: January 8, 2014

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.
