Description

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 Samantha 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 parents' divorce. But maybe that's a good thing. Maybe change is a good thing.

being rich and hot excuses being an ass

Would you listen to Fallen Crest High again? Why?

No. I thought the story of Samantha was a good story and had something to say but her falling for Mason ruined it. Mason because he is so handsome,good athlete, rich and charismatic is given a free ride with no consequences to being a total spoiled ass. He is a bully and treats all lesser people as he sees them as pawns.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

I wouldn't made the main love interest a spoiled brat and ass. Mason is the stereotype of what is wrong with most professional athlete. His behavior ninety percent of the time was inexcusable. I kept waiting for Sam to wake up and see what he was but the story endorses the fantasy and behavior.

Which scene was your favorite?

None really except frustration when I realized how the book was going to end. The story of Samantha was a good one if it had not been tainted by the Mason story line.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Sam's long runs and how she felt about them and the inability of any adult in her life to see her downward spiral

Any additional comments?

The author has real talent. if she can get away from the fantasy that the male love interest has to be a bad boy, rich, incredibly handsome, super athlete, and have disdain for everyone and everything and act like an ass to show how special he is she could write a really good novel. .

Yes please

I loved this book. the character dynamics. Sam's life goes through so many changes at an impressionable time in her life. I was hooked from the beginning and drank it up. The characters were deep, the drama large and my happiness off the charts. Loved it.I love the chemistry between mason and Sam~

Last but not least- narration was great!

Mixed Emotions About This Book

Would you listen to Fallen Crest High again? Why?

No, I can't listen to it again. Although I was hooked right from the start, I couldn't figure out just why. The story rambled quite a bit. After the first half of the book, I wasn't really sure where it was going and what the point was. It was like the book was finished at the halfway point and then the author added page after page of pointless and over-the-top confrontations between various characters.
The way the teenagers treated the adults was appalling. The way the teenagers treated each other was appalling. The way Samantha interacted with the guy she ends up with made me cringe. For example, he would walk up to her, say a few words, PICK HER UP LIKE A CHILD, holding her with his hands under her bottom and her arms around his neck, and have a conversation with her. A serious non-sexual conversation. Then he'd have a conversation with someone else who happens to walk by, while still holding her this way. This happened more than once. UGGGHHH. I couldn't stand it. Keep in mind I'm an adult. Maybe teenagers wouldn't be bothered by the things that bothered me.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending? Hahaha! Nothing happened. I can't even remember the ending because nothing got wrapped up. This is book 1 in a series though, so...

What does Saskia Maarleveld bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think she did a decent job because her narrating didn't stand out while I listened. That's good. But, she's not my favorite. I've heard better.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It was addicting. It was nauseating. I can't decide if I liked it or not.

Any additional comments?

There are several books in this series. I haven't decided if I will listen to book 2 or not. Maybe the writing gets better? Maybe there's an actual plot? If so, I would definitely take a chance on the next book.

I have always loved this book.

Out of necessity (meaning too little time to re-read, but plenty of listening time), I snagged the whole series. The audiobooks is just as addicting as the ebook. I was a witch when I was pulled away from it.

Never get in the way of a woman and the Kades.

Amazingly Bad

Any additional comments?

Its hard to even comment on a book that was so bad. I was curious about Tijan's books and since this one was on sale I tried it out. There is absolutely no plot. The characters are ridiculous and completely one dimensional. Its reads like a 9th graders attempt at a novel. Its hard to separate the narrator from the book content, but both seemed boring. Often there was far too much dramatic emphasis placed on mundane text. I listen to a lot of books on my long commute and for me this was top 5 worst of all time. I truly can't imagine where these 5 star reviews are coming from but to each their own. BTW - I have nothing against this genre. Just the story itself.

Hooked

I really enjoyed this book. I am now a Tijan fan. So far I have liked all of her books. I enjoyed all the characters chemistry in this book. I'm only complaint is most of the male characters sounded the same with the narration.

The worst book I have ever read.

The sex scenes are pitiful and there are too many secondary characters to keep track of. The characters have no depth and the love story with Mason ( SPOILER ) seems fake. Really I paid 27$ for this. Waste of money and time.

Love the story of Sam and Mason

His story with all it's twists and drama never let me go. It's my fourth time and I will come back again.
