fallen-crest-familyBlurb: Samantha and Mason are together. Everyone knows it. Not everyone is dealing with it. While Mason’s ready to give them the middle finger, there’s one not going away. Her mother. Threats are issued. Ultimatums are given. Even blackmail is used, but only Samantha can put a stop to Analise. However, when a trauma from her past is triggered, she may not have the courage or strength to do what’s needed. If she doesn’t, Mason’s future could be destroyed.

Even though this book didn’t really have much of a plot (again) I still liked it.  This series may be my guilty pleasure.  This review may seem to have a lot of criticisms, but rest assured I enjoyed this read.  Its weird, its like I love to hate it or something.

I remember thinking that Sam is a bit of a drama queen and not minding.  Which is shocking since I hate drama queens. I’m way more into problem solving than making a big deal out of something.  And that’s what she does in this book.  She makes a big deal out of a bunch of little things.  But she doesn’t really do anything to try and change her circumstances until the very end.  It just seemed like the book could have been a short story, a lot of emotional torment was added, what I call fluff. It wasn’t needed IMO.

Mason is the strong one and he pushes her to do what she needs to do, and he allows her to do it in her own time. I don’t like that about his character for some reason.  To me he seems manipulative and filled with stubborn pride.  He refuses to do the smart thing, instead doing things his way, which gives the same result, but just takes way longer. More fluff.

Logan is by far my favorite character in this series.  He is easy going, fun loving, loyal and doesn’t allow his pride to get in the way of his ego.  He is willing to do whatever is necessary to help, even if the idea didn’t come from him.   His way of bending without breaking endears him to me.  There comes a time in everyone’s life when we all realize that we don’t know whats best for ourselves and have to ask for help, and Logan embodies that to me.
