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: 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!

Finding KylerFinding Kyler (The Kennedy Boys #1)
by Siobhan Davis
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Upper Young Adult
Release Date: January 9, 2017

Blurb:
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—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.

Young passionate couple making love in bed

EXCERPT

“You must be the famous Libitz,” he’d opened, taking his assigned seat beside her, and flashing his sexiest grin.

After all, if she was his chosen conquest for the weekend, there was no time like the present to work his wiles. Wearing a simple black sheath dress with aqua circles, 70s-style mod make-up and oversized silver and crystal chandelier earrings that almost brushed her thin shoulders, she’d turned to him and blinked those wide, all-seeing eyes.

“And you…must be kidding.”

Taken aback, he’d stared at her for a second before chuckling. “Wha—I mean, how’s that?”

“Let’s start over,” she said, cocking her head to the side. “Here’s your line, Romeo: “Hi, I’m Étienne’s brother, Jean-Christian. It’s nice to meet you.” Want to give it a try?”

He cleared his throat, his smile fading. “Hi, I’m Étienne’s brother, Jean-Christian. It’s nice to meet you.”

She locked eyes with his, her lips neutral, neither tilted up nor down. “Hi. I’m Libitz Feingold, Kate’s best friend…and it’s not cold enough.”

“What?” asked J.C., feeling completely turned around.

“It’s not cold enough in hell for me to fall for someone like you,” she said, then shifted back around to talk to the person on her other side.

Well, fuck me, thought J.C., taking another gulp of beer as he tried to figure out if he was insulted or impressed. After a moment, he nudged her in the side with his elbow and she looked at him over her shoulder, her expression annoyed.

“Yes?”

“I hear the temperature’s dropping there,” he said casually, then added, “because they’re expecting a visit from you.”

“Ha!” she chortled, a genuine grin brightening her eyes for a moment before she quickly reigned it back in to practiced ennui. “Is that right?”

He shrugged, tipping his bottle of beer back as he held her eyes, challenging her to come back at him with something clever. “So I heard.”

“From all the friends you’ve got there?”

He almost spit his beer out. Damn, but she was quick.

“Truce?’ he asked, placing his beer on the table and holding out his hand.

She stared at his hand for a moment, then looked away, leaning forward to pick up her champagne glass and bringing it slowly to her lips. “No, thanks. Mama didn’t raise no fool.”

“You’re unreal.” She shook her head, that bored look still in place.

“Nope. I’m real. I’m just not a good target for charming scamps looking for trouble.”

“A target? Shit. Who got to you?” he asked, feeling a little abused by her insta-judgement of him without actually getting a chance to know him in person. Not that she was wrong exactly. But getting into trouble with the right person could be a hell of a lot of fun.

“The list is long and distinguished,” she shot back.

His eyes widened and his lips wobbled.

“Oh, God,” she said, shaking her head as her cheeks bloomed an appealing pink under her make-up. “I walked right into that one didn’t I?”

“Yes, you did,” said J.C. with what he hoped was a disarming grin. “All together, now…”

“So’s my Johnson,” they said at the same time, quoting the rebuttal line from Top Gun.

“Hey, look at that,” he said, still smiling at her. “You do know how to have fun. I was beginning to worry.”

Her smile instantly faded. “You’re not as cute as you think you are.”

“Yeah,” he said, nodding as he finished the last of his beer. “I am.”

MY REVIEW

The moment I read the summary of J.C. and the Bijoux Jolis, I knew it was going to be different. A good kind of different. I was not mistaken.

This book is my favorite among all the Rousseau books. Why? Because it is mixed with Historical Fiction and a bit of mystery. This made it more interesting and as I said, different. J.C. and the Bijoux Jolis was romantic… classic and it was elegantly delivered. The writing was smooth and beautiful just like Katy’s other books. I think I can already recognize her books even if she don’t put her name on them.

I instantly loved her characters and since I enjoy witty banters, this book did not disappoint. J.C. is a character to be loved. He stole my heart from the beginning. The manwhore who avoided love as much as he can but ended up helplessly falling in love with this small but beautiful woman Lib— who share the same passion but belongs to a different religion and culture and also engaged to another man. Lib is a strong woman and she is feisty and stubborn and smart and confident and independent yet soft on the inside. She makes a perfect match for J.C. whose character is as strong as her. They make a perfect couple and they are my most favorite in the Blueberry Lane series yet.

I don’t exactly look for it, but there are certain words that usually hit me whenever I read a book. It still surprise me everytime because I find it rare and special and when they do hit a spot, the book suddenly feels like home…

“But forever exists. I promise you it does… It’s a choice. It’s a choice to love someone and be faithful to them and do the work. We’re all capable of that.”


“There was a freshness, a newness, an excitement in finding the right person after knowing so many who weren’t.”

These words are true and I believe them with all my heart.  And for a book to be beautiful and unforgettable, it has to have meaning too. For it to have meaning, it should be able to speak to us–probably in many different ways–but it should speak to us and make us remember their words even before you finished the book. For me, that makes this book not only beautiful and romantic but also hopeful and courageous and brave. Because loving isn’t easy and this book gives hope to those who are afraid to love and be loved in return. Then there’s the magic of destiny and also the truth that we can make them happen.

I loved J.C. and Lib. I loved their story that made them oh so right for each other. Katy has written yet another beautiful love story that will make you feel sexy and will definitely make you swoon!

5 STARS!

About the Author:

authorphoto

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.

Blurb:

If the best man and maid of honor are both single, it’s practically an unwritten rule that they should pork. 

…so begins a rocky acquaintance between Jean-Christian “J.C.” Rousseau and Libitz Feingold at the wedding of J.C.’s brother and Lib’s best friend. While manslut best man J.C. is surprised when maid of honor Libitz soundly spurns his advances, his curiosity is piqued. The girl he couldn’t have becomes the only one he wants.

So, when he finds a seventy-year-old portrait in the attic of his sister’s mansion that bears an uncanny resemblance to the prickly gallery owner, he enlists her help in solving a mystery seven decades in the making. Traveling from Philadelphia to New York to Marseille, a couple who started off as enemies will discover that even cynics can find true love…and mortal man is no match for destiny.
