Oh, man, where do I start? I LOVED the whole Fallen Crest series. Tijan seems to have this magical ability to create a whole other world that sucks you in.
After seven books in the series, there is a lot of intensified pressure for a stellar final book. Well, there’s good news and bad news. Everybody HATES bad news so let’s start there. Firstly, Fallen Crest is done, over, kaput. Dang, where am I going to get my Tijan drama now. I hope she comes out with something quick! Secondly, speaking of drama, FCF seemed to have an excessive amount of it, that I’m not sure fit it (book/story-line) or needed to be there. There was Sam and Mason, Sam and some of her cross-country teammates, Sam and her mom as well as Mason’s mom. Needless to say, Sam had a ton of drama throughout this book. I was saddened that I wasn’t feeling the true Sam/Mason emotional connection as part of the ‘threesome fearsome’. Lastly, I wanted more wedding and more closure with Logan/Tate and Nate.
So, here’s the good news. It’s still Tijan, her writing is phenomenal and I devoured the book all at once. I suffered the biggest book hangover once I was done and it seemed to take me forever to come to some sort of peace, that this second family of mine is done. Tijan is just one of those ‘one click’ authors for me and I love her writing. Despite wanting more out of this book, I will still give it 5.0 stars, because it was that good. Who knows, maybe we’ll get a quick novella somewhere down the line as an extended epilogue. What do you think?
