Series: Fallen Crest High #5.5
Rating: 4.5 stars
Genres: New Adult Contemporary Romance

People think that just because they know my name, my reputation, and my family that they know me. They don’t.

They say Iโ€™m a manwhore, but who wouldnโ€™t be with my face and body? They say Iโ€™m a partier, and that’s not going to change. They say I’m a fighter, and hell yes I am. F*ck with mine, and Iโ€™ll f*ck you back ten times worse.

So, yes. Maybe what they say is true, but thatโ€™s not all of me.

I’m loyal to a damned fault. If you earn it, I’ll never leave your side. And when I love, I love hard, but there’s another side to me where it’s dark and painful. That side’s been kept hidden, until her. Taylor saw inside of me, and the second she was there, she owned me.

My Review:
This book was brilliant, and one of the best in the series. I was a little surprised that it was written mainly from Taylor’s point of view, as I was expecting it to be in Logan’s narrative. We do get some chapters in his POV but mostly it is Taylor.
Taylor was a great leading lady and a perfect match for Logan.
I loved seeing a different side to Logan in this book and it really helped me understand him more. He is always joking and messing about but it’s obvious it’s to hide his real feelings. Taylor breaks through his veneer and something inside both of them calls out to the other. I felt like crying for Logan, I really did. His inner demons have been tormenting him and he’s all cut up. I loved seeing his transformation in this book and I’m totally rooting for them as a couple. I also enjoyed seeing glimpses of Mason and Sam, although they were rather fleeting, but hey, this is Logan and Taylor’s story so that’s cool.
I saw some reviews criticizing Tijan for what happened at the 82% mark and some readers even gave up at the point. I have to say I was gut-punched at that part of the story and mad at Taylor but not really at Logan (don’t hate.) I actually thought Tijan did a fantastic job of keeping his character consistent. Drink and sex are Logan’s coping mechanisms, so for him not to react as he did would not have been in keeping with his character. I didn’t like what he did, but it was believable.

One of the things I don’t like about both Mason and Logan is their overall attitude to girls. Yes, both of them would never take advantage of a girl or go off with a girl who is drunk and not capable of making a rational decision, however, they know girls are falling head over heels for them and they still go on using them for sex (pre-Sam Mase and pre-Taylor Logan.) That doesn’t sit right with me, but I’ve had to just let that fly over my head, because otherwise I wouldn’t have enjoyed this series.

Overall, this was a fantastic addition to an amazingly-addictive series. Highly Recommended.

Actual rating 4.5 stars.
