My mother tried to destroy me. She doesn’t exist to me anymore and my father, the one who raised me and the biological one, are both works in progress. The only two people that I can trust are Mason and Logan, and they’re the two people who I could lose. It won’t happen. I won’t let it. No matter the truth, no matter who loves me, I won’t let anything or anyone come between us. They’re my world. They’re my life. They’re my family.
Given how the last book was left off, I was eager to jump right into Fallen Fourth Down. So let’s see what sort of dramas await us in this book.
First of all I just knew Marissa was going to be a problem, although I haven’t anticipate she become such a creep. It baffled me that Mason did nip the butt on this one early on. I understand they used to be friends, but give Mason’s characteristic, he should’ve cut her off long time ago. And it should never come to a point that would allow her to manipulate Mason. I never liked the Marissa character (or Becki just FYI), when Marissa was briefly mentioned in previous books, I thought not only she was weak, but it was obvious she was using Mason and enjoyed the special attention she received from him. And I wasn’t wrong.
We see a lot of the vulnerable side of Sam in this book, I get that she is lonely without Mason is around, but she also seems pretty lost as well. I am not sure how many times Sam and Mason reassured their love to each other, it was to a point that they seem desperate.
So, we all know Logan has feeling for Sam. We all knew he could’ve loved Sam, like Mason love Sam. But, Mason is with Sam, so even though Logan loves Sam, but he does not love Sam in the same extended as Mason loves Sam. Yes I know, what I wrote probably confused the heck out of you. That’s exactly what happened in this book. As much I enjoyed reading all the chaos, Fallen Fourth Down’s dramas seem redundant. Marissa turned out to be quite a stalker, a manipulator, not to mention a problem for Sam and Mason. Sam created quite a bit problem for herself, when she listened to the one person she should’ve never listened to, Tate. Then she processed to push Logan away even though they were family. Sam missed Mason so much that’s all she talked about. I never like this sort of depended relationship. For one, she and Logan will be joining Mason soon, they are only a school year behind Mason. Don’t let me start with Logan’s relationship with what’s her face. I never liked the girl, she was so weird.
Meanwhile new dramas are stirring up at Mason’s college, Nate and Mason are slowly drifting apart, and a new enemy is intent to either use Mason or destroy him.
I think I would’ve liked to see the fearsome threesome a bit mature if not stronger at this point. And seriously given Sam and Mason’s situation, I’ve thought their relationship should’ve be solid. I am perfectly ok with Logan being in love with Sam, as long as he protects her in his own ways, and doesn’t come between Sam and Mason’s relationship (in my perfect little book world of course).
The ending reminded me Tijan’s another series “Jade”, one of the reasons I enjoy reading Fallen Crest High was because the school elements. I am not sure I like the new direction of the series is going. Overall, even though I did enjoy reading this book, I also have the same problem with this book in every other Tijan’s book of late. The repetitive situations, and the characters seem to stop developed all together.
