Falcon by Michelle Heard–Review

When I started to see all the teasers and blurbs, I thought Trinity Academy would be following the newest trend, high school/college bully romance with a touch of Reverse Harem. Interestingly enough, Ms. Heard took Falcon in a different direction and I can’t say that I’m all that upset over it.

Now, don’t get me wrong, HS/College, bully romance, reverse harem, and slightly dark is my jam. So, I am thoroughly enjoying the trend now. With that said, I was slightly let down, because I was used to so much drama, but I can now correct myself in saying that while it wasn’t overly dramatic, it was a chock-full storyline with issues, character growth and finding oneself, which is just as good.

One thing I absolutely adored, was the camaraderie of Falcon, Lake and Mason. They were so tight, that they formed their own little family. In this case, the family you choose is stronger than blood. Some of the sacrifices they made for each other, as well as, having another’s back even if it didn’t involve them, was spectacular.

Falcon was not a story, just about Falcon, but included snippets of what we could expect in Mason and Lake’s stories. Their personalities jumped of the page and I can’t wait to read about each one.

Besides, the above misconception, I also thought I would be reading all about greed, wealth, and the power that comes with it. That wasn’t the full focus. Were these guys obscenely wealthy? Um, yep. Were there two different aspects of power (parental generation vs. the boys)? Heck yeah, but Michelle Heard somehow made it more than the superficial stuff. She dug deep and that’s when we got to see hopes, dreams, and, personalities.

Layla. I LOVED Layla! Her mother is the PA to Falcon’s father and gets a spot in Trinity Academy where she’s a freshman. She is the opposite of any of her peers and is afraid that her ‘secret’ will come out. Layla is spunky, feisty, unafraid to curb her tongue around these upper crust students. She gives as good as she gets. She develops a strong friendship with Kingsley Hunt and together they are two peas in a pod.

The other thing for me to make it a 4⭐read, is the pace at which some of the ‘drama/issues’ are resolved. I will say, Falcon, was a quick read and am not sure if that had something to do with it. Did this truly effect my experience while reading this book? Not really, I just couldn’t make it a 5⭐, because of it.

I, truly, enjoyed this read and am looking forward to reading Mason’s book. There’s something about a brooding, bitter guy.

Wealth and power make them untouchable.
The monarchs of Trinity Academy.

Falcon Reyes.

With a sharp, intelligent look, he reeks of arrogance wrapped in an icy layer of indifference.
A life of luxury has left him with the notion that everything is attainable.
Power. Wealth. Status.

He’s a god and I a mere mortal.
He’s Jupiter, and I am Mercury.

There’s so much power in this man.
He has the kind of influence most people can’t even begin to imagine.

And me… I’m an eighteen-year-old girl who managed to make him lose control.
I’m the girl who showed him there’s a kaleidoscope of colors outside the high walls of his black and white world.

Excerpt:
“You have to pull away. I’m not strong enough to let you go,” he whispers, and it feels as if the words carry a deeper meaning.

I lower my legs and squeeze myself out from the space between Falcon and the wall. With a trembling hand, I try to straighten my hair before I open the door. Blocking the inside of my suite with my body, I say, “I’m going to have to miss today’s class. Can you take notes for me?”

A slow smile spreads over Kingsley’s face. “Sure. We can exchange notes later, although I bet yours will be much more interesting than mine.”

I stick my tongue out at her, which only makes her laugh as she walks away. “Enjoy it.”

I shake my head as I close the door and turning around, I lean back against it.

Falcon is still standing exactly where I left him, bracing himself with hands against the wall. I let my eyes glide over the wide expanse of his back, his trim waist, perfect butt, and strong legs.

There’s so much power in this man.

Not only is he physically strong, but he has the kind of influence most people can’t even begin to imagine.

And me… I’m an eighteen-year-old girl who managed to make him lose control.
