Fallen Crest University (Fallen Crest High #5) by Tijan

fallen-crest-universityBlurb:  Samantha, Mason, and Logan are all together and united with one common enemy: Sebastian Park, the king of fraternity douchebags.

With professional football scouts eyeing his every move, Mason Kade has to walk the line for the first time in his life. Any move he makes against Sebastian has to be perfect and under the radar. One mistake, and his career is over.

Sebastian has other plans. Mason’s career isn’t his target—not even close. Wanting to destroy Mason completely, Sebastian knows he must hit him where it hurts the most: Samantha, who doesn’t give a rat’s ass that she’s the target.

Sam is bound and determined to protect Mason herself, no matter the cost, but what if the cost is beyond her imagination? What if this time, the villain wins?

“What are you looking at?” A broken daughter. I shook my head. “Nothing.” Me. I was looking at myself.

4 stars

I didn’t think there could be a more dramatic ending after the last book. Turns out, I was wrong.

At least in this one I see more growth in Mason, he seems to realize that he can’t do everything his way.  It is quite a humbling for him I’m sure.  Sam and Logan team up in this one to dun dun dun…..keep stuff from Mason.  Again! And guess what, Mason is keeping his own counsel as well.  Well slap my ass and call me Sally!  (No offense to anyone named Sally)

This one seems to have more about protecting Mason than anything else.  Protecting his career and making sure he doesn’t get kicked out of school.  You gotta love Logan’s commitment to his brother.  For him to be willing to do the dirty work even if it means he will be kicked out of school shows some serious loyalty.  And I know I’ve mentioned his loyalty before but damn, its worth another mention.

But the one character who stood out to me was the big bad.  Park Sebastion is the best bad guy I have ever read!  He is like Malificent to all the other Disney villians.  Seriously evil dude.  I applaud Tijan this time around.  The plot was definitive, not sloppy or unrecognizable.  Although I would be remiss if I didn’t add, “‘Bout time!”

And while I still think she uses too many plot devices in her books, it seems to work for her.  Breezy got some a serious following.  And I am one of them.

Until the next book…
