Sam's first day at Fallen Crest Public doesn't go well. Some girls want to be her. Some girls want to destroy her. And some just don't like her. All in all, despite being protected by Mason and Logan, it's still only the strong survive.

Sam will not only have to survive, she needs to learn how to conquer too, but there's another battle growing. Things are about to come to a disastrous end between the towns, Roussou and Fallen Crest. Sam's other main dilemma? Keeping Mason and Logan from getting arrested or hospitalized.

Tijan has once again blown my mind…Her ability to write a story is out of this world.

Fallen Crest Public is book 3 in the saga of Mason & Sam, oh and Logan and Nate and a few others….the characters we love or love to hate in the Fallen Crest series.

Things are not going smooth for Sam in transitioning to Fallen Crest Public. Her and Mason are not fighting but having some issues. Kate is a complete and total bitch and what she does to Sam had me wanting to go through the pages and cut her. I think its first time Tijan really made me ugly cry in one of her books. It was partly what happens to Sam but also seeing Malinda (Mark’s Mom) and how she responds and how Sam responds to her. We see Mason’s POV in FCP and I love getting to see more of what he is thinking and realizing how much he loves Sam is heartwarming.  Mason is BADASS, Sam IS BADASS and together they are EXPLOSIVE!  We see more of Mason’s asshole side which I, to be perfectly honest love, not that I normally love all assholes but this one I do why? Because he is an honest Ass he never lies about who he is I can respect that.  Sam shows more emotion and feeling and we see a blending of completely cut off emotional Sam of Fallen Crest High and the Emotional high of Fallen Crest Family.

I can’t hardly write this review because I don’t want to give anything away. So all I am going to say from here is the last word in this book is “Fuck” and honestly that is exactly what I said in my head FUCK!

I cannot wait for book 4. Tijan jump on that would you I know you aren’t busy or anything.

Tijan is a writer who has grown with each book she has written and published and I can see her only getting better in the future. ONE CLICK FCP today!

BOOK EXCERPT

“Heads up,” one of the guys warned. “Hoe walking.”

“Screw you, Ethan,” Kate snapped. “You’re showing off to get in Mason’s good graces, but we both know the shoe was on the other foot last night.”

Last night?

I didn’t want to turn around. I didn’t want to deal with Kate yet. She and her three friends had been the main companions for the guys, but that stopped when I found out about her agenda to destroy Sam. She went after my girlfriend so I went after her. Well, I tried. Sam was adamant about handling this battle on her own so I did what I could. The girls were no longer friends with our group. They were exiled, but I heard the anger from her and I knew she wasn’t going to lay down and take it.

I knew about Parker and Nate, but it sounded like there was more. I wondered what else Kate was up to?

Logan laughed. “So desperate, Kate. The look doesn’t fit you.”

“Keep laughing, Logan. You’re going on the list.”

He grinned now.

I laughed to myself. She stepped wrong, and judging by the quiet intake of breath, Kate knew it as well. The easygoing air surrounding the group was gone. Knowing that look, I turned now and saw my little brother getting ready to go in for the kill. There was a certain look that came over him. His head would straighten. His eyes would narrow and roam up and down the target. No one knew what was he doing, but I did. Logan was searching for weaknesses. If he couldn’t see one, he’d sense for one. It was something we learned over the years after we’d been screwed over by adults too many times. We went with our gut.

I waited for his next move like the rest.

“What list are you talking about, Kate?” Logan’s voice grew soft. He was going in for the kill.

Kate seemed frozen, and the rest of her crew had varying reactions. Parker grimaced, her eyes darting to Nate’s before looking away. Natalie took a deep breath and Jasmine moved back a step. All of them recognized the tone, they just weren’t used to being on the receiving end.

“Come on, Logan,” Kate tried to laugh it off. “I was kidding.”

A smirk came over me, but then it vanished. As I watched the scene unfold, I saw Logan decide to give her a pass.

No. That wasn’t going to happen. “No, you weren’t.”

All heads jerked in my direction. My gaze caught my brother’s in a silent mocking, and a spark flared in Logan’s. The message was received: Kate couldn’t be let off the hook, no matter what. I wasn’t surprised when I heard him add, “What list are you talking about? Come on, Kate. I’d like to know how I rate getting on some list?”

She let out a shaky laugh, glancing between us now. “Seriously, come on, guys. Mason. Logan. I was joking.”

“No, you weren’t.”

She turned to me and her eyes widened. A glimmer of fear showed. “I came over to see if you needed help.”

My eyes narrowed to slits now. “With what?”

“With Tate.”

“You think we need help with her?”

She peeked at Logan before turning back to me.

Too late. I caught the slight smugness. It mingled with her fear, but I caught it. “What was that?”

“What?” An innocent mask slipped over her.

I shook my head, pointing to her face. “That. That look you gave Logan.”

Logan’s head straightened. His interest was piqued.

“What are you talking about, Mason?” She was growing cockier now. “I’m trying to be a friend. We used to have your backs. Remember?”

One of the guys muttered, “Oh shit.”

Even Nate laughed at that. “Since when? What are you talking about, Kate?”

She turned to the rest of the guys. All of them were looking at her in disbelief. Except Logan, he was grinning widely, leaning back against his Escalade. He shook his head now. “You’re digging yourself a hole. Stop talking. It might help.”

Jasmine hissed behind her, “Don’t you talk to her like that—”

“Like what?” Ethan shot back at her.

That stopped her. All the wind she had ready to let loose fell flat. Her eyes darted to his, and she couldn’t look away.

Ethan leaned back against the car beside Logan, and shoved his hands into his front pockets. His shoulders hunched forward, but his gaze never left hers. They were dead-locked as he added, “You’re going to tell us what to do? You’re going to tell me what to do, Jaz?”

“Stop.” Her throat moved as she visibly swallowed. “Ethan—”

“No, Jaz. You picked your side. We’re not friends with you guys anymore.”

Her shoulders flinched as if he’d punched her.

He nodded in my direction. “And you know why.”
