Mason and Logan Kade are two brothers who did their own thing. They were rich and expected to attend Samantha’s school, Fallen Crest Academy. They chose public school and now she 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 book contains adult/mature young adult situations.
SENTENCE ONE: It was Friday night, two in the morning, and my two best friends were shrieking in drunken laughter behind me.
THOUGHTS: Double tapped the word/number two. A bit off putting, to be honest.
SENTENCE TWO: I sighed as I pulled into the gas station.
THOUGHTS: We’ve all been there. Sighing while we pull into the gas station with drunk friends. *sigh*
SENTENCE THREE: My little Corolla had been chugging near empty for the last few miles.
THOUGHTS: When you’re young, running on E is a way of life. “sigh again*
SENTENCE FOUR: And I’ll admit that I’d been worried we would’ve broken down on the side of the road, not for my car’s sake, for my sake.
THOUGHTS: There’s some punctuation missing here. It’s a bit distracting. Not digging it.
SENTENCE FIVE: I didn’t know if I could’ve handled walking with Lydia and Jessica.
THOUGHTS: I don’t like these girls based on their names alone.
~WHY DID I BUY THIS BOOK?~
Reviews hooked me. Honestly. I’ve been in the mood for a book love triangle and researched my way to this one. I knew it’d be a little tawdry because of the kinda stepbrothers angle, but the truth is this book was a lot of silly drama, bad punctuation and confusing dialogue. Do I think the author is awful? No. Did I read it all the way through? Yes. More or less. Did I enjoy it enough to buy the second one? No. Will I buy another book by this author? Maybe. Bottom line: I was desperate for a fix I didn’t get. If I were younger, maybe I would’ve enjoyed it more, but I’m a woman in her…shhh….never mind. Not the point. I’m too old for all that drama and the slutty, drunken mom parts were despicable. The good news? Fallen Crest High was only .99 cents. The better news? Tijna has more books available, and I will absolutely give those a try.
