It’s been a long time since I discovered a series that’s completely published and have been able to binge read the whole thing at once. The Fallen Crest High series has been on my radar for awhile because Deanna loves it, but it never really looked like my thing. After a disappointing reading year in 2019, I found myself looking for books that I don’t normally read and for some reason got into SUPER ANGSTY type of books. Because of that, I decided to finally give this series a try and got hooked.

The series follows Samantha and her drama filled life with the Kade brothers, Mason and Logan. Sam’s mother is leaving her father and takes Samantha with her to her new boyfriend’s house. She meets her future step-brothers, who are wildly popular rich football players, and after some initial bad blood, the three become very close. Mason and Sam also start dating.

There are some super crazy, ridiculous, eye-rolling, cringe-worthy, unbelievable drama that goes on in this series. It features teenagers that act like adults and adults that are crazy and negligent and abusive (and a few eventually that are amazing). I didn’t love how it painted teenage girls as desperate for popularity above anything else, even self-respect. There is a lot of cheating and sleeping around. And a ridiculous amount of graphic sex scenes between Sam and Mason. There’s also a lot of violence and destruction and social wars.

All that said, this series was highly entertaining. The writing was pretty addictive and I had a hard time putting most of these books down. There was some cute romance and fun banter. The drama was so off the wall, that I just had to know what crazy thing would happen next. It did start to get a little old, though. They kind of just kept doing the same thing, just with different enemies. I did like, though, that by the end they realized they needed to make some changes in their lives and finally started to grow up. While I know this series wouldn’t be for everyone, if you’re in the mood for some angst, this is definitely a series to try.

  1. The review I’ve been waiting for!!! I love that you enjoyed this series because it wasn’t one I thought you would like — then I remembered you liked the Royals, so I thought maybe… It makes me happy that you liked it despite all the crazy and sex. Now, I just have to get you to read some of her other books…Great review!

  2. Great review! You reminded me that I did like how the last book ended. I appreciated that they realized they needed to grow up. I was really curious how the author was going to wrap up all that angst lol.
