Taz’s boyfriend & friend to Wolf Crew – Race Ryerson

Heather – Channing’s long time girlfriend.
Cross’s half brother (new information) Blaise Devore (he is a senior at Fallen Crest Academy)
Ryerson Crew Leader – Drake Ryerson (Bren’s Ex) – he has some ulterior motive for being in town.
The Story: Bren and Cross have been best friends for years and in love for the last year. Crew is their life and things are good at the beginning of the book, but it isn’t long before things start getting stirred up. Jordan gets jumped at a party and some other things start happening where it looks like strings are getting pulled against the kids in Roussou and Crews in particular.
The narration was great. Most of the book was told from Bren’s POV, but this Narrator Therese Plummer, is good at doing teenage male voices as well as the female voice. Then when the male narrator finally started, I liked him as Cross. He has a nice deep voice and his inflection was perfect for a guy like cross. A tough guy who grew up in Roussou.
The story was just as good as the first book. This time the Wolf Crew had different enemies to fight than in the first book as well as different family drama. I had read the book Rich Prick in the past. That one is technically after this one in the timeline, but it was nice to see the crossover in this one. Also we got to see the Kade’s in this book so there was a lot of Fallen Crest crossover as well. I just love how everything fits together so nicely.
