Mason Kade is not known to be nice. He is ruthless, manipulative, and unforgiving. Most will say that he is an a**hole and he is to those that cross him or cross his loved ones. However, he does not want to be who he is. He does not enjoy hurting others, but there is no limit to the lengths he will go to protect himself and his brother.

This is the story of how he came to b

I love Mason Kade.
Always have always will..

But this? To be in his head in the early years.

Finding out the reasons he did the things he has done.
How he did them. What he was thinking while he did them.
His love for Logan.
His hatred for James.
The party scene. So much hurt!
His bond with Nate.
The first meeting with Analise.
The first sighting of Sam.

I just seriously epicly loved this book and it makes me so happy it was written!
This book is a prequel to the "Fallen Crest High" series by Tijan. I am thinking that I should have read book one first; but in true "Jen style" I didn't! Always have to be different I suppose! I haven't read book one yet, but so far I don't think I will enjoy it less since I read Mason's book first. This prequel is written in Mason's POV, and it gives great insight into who he is as a person. I feel that I will have tons more compassion for him now that I know why he is the way he is.

Well, that was sooooo... much interesting!!! And even more...

I understand so many things about Mason and eventually...Logan.

All this badass attitude was explaining pretty much in this book. Everything is more understandable right now!!! When i finshed Fallen Crest High, i was wondering for so many things, but now it's all clear to me!!!

I liked this book very much, because it wasn't the same story from Mason's pont of view, but it was the story of his life before Sam jump in... Imagine that the

This book was great for insights into Mason and even Logan. What started their anger and everything that led up to meeting Sam. The drama with all the girls is borderline psycho. The adults aren’t much better. Mason, Logan and Nate are the only sane ones and make this series what it is.

I love Mason. He’s such an arsehole, but I do love him. 😂 He and Logan deserved so much better.

If I could give Mason more than 5 stars I would. From the minute I started, I couldn't put it down. I loved reading and learning what made Mason Kade who he is. Along the way, I think I fell in love with him more. If that was even possible. With this being a prequel to all the Fallen Crest books you get to read the actual accounts of things that happened to Mason and his younger brother Logan. You have gotten glimpses or read parts of the stories in Fallen Crest High, Fallen Crest Family and Fal ...more

I really hope that the first book in the series will have more action than this one. I know that Mason’s book was an introduction to the series, but I felt like it had no connection between the chapters. It was like jumping from one time to another, without any explanation. However I hope the next one will be better.

Well... Yes this is a novella. But it kinda just seemed like a compilation of her teasers she posts all the time. And I'll admit I am disappointed with this. I didn't really care for the time jumps much. I love love the fallen crest series. I really do. But this wasn't that great, and maybe if it was free or cheaper I would feel better about it. But overall I'm just disappointed. Nothing new came out of this. Nothing. It was better than fallen crest alternative which I actually regret reading al ...more
I had one big issue with this book that I just couldn't get pass. When you first met Logan, Mason's little brother, I had the sense that he was much younger than15. What 15 year old hides their big brother's school books and plays hide and go seek?

And then later on in the book still at the age of 15 talks about shagging girls in high school, drinking, and parties? It seemed like they were two different characters. I thought early Logan was around the age of 10 and with a snap of a finger the la

I could literally feel his anger roll off the pages of this book!!

I really like Mason, and he is an awesome big brother. His parents are terrible. Loving this series so far.

I loved, loved getting into Mason's head, and this is the first book you should read before reading the Fallen Crest high because it begins with Mason being younger, his dad cheating, mom crying, the divorce, the scandals, all the trouble he gets into it..
I loved reading and learning what made Mason Kade who he is.
This novella was perfect. It explained a lot of things we'd only read about in passing.

If you want to know what is going on with Mason and Logan you definitely need to read this book. This book shows you how their attitudes and anger toward their mom and dad got started. Gives insight on why the bond of the brothers became. Love reading about Mason and Logan. It also shows how good of a friend Nate really is. Love it!

This was a nice prequel to the Fallen Crest series from the point of view of Mason Kade. While it's not necessary to read this to enjoy the series, it does provide some nice (and not so nice) details that enhance the journey. I read this after reading the first 3 books and I think readers might not get as much out of it if they start with this first.

Mason takes place a few years before Sam comes into the picture and ends with their first meeting at Quickie's (which is the opening of Fallen Crest

I liked seeing how much Mason and Logan care about each other, but I didn't find this novella as addicting as Book 1. I'm still planning on reading Book 2 next, though.

And thanks to Deanna for lending me this copy!

Wow..........I've been waiting on this book ever since Tijan mentioned it, it couldn't get here fast enough! But damn it was worth the wait! It was nice to see everything from the beginning and from Masons POV and how much everything effected him. And how cause everything affected him made his and Logan's relationship grow closer. I really and truly still dislike Kate, but I think everyone will agree on that in the end! But also I don't know what it is, but I seriously don't like or trust Mariss ...more

All I can say in two words, Mason is...

Tijan really nailed Mason's character. You get to know and why he is the way he is. You will not be disappointed and it deserves the solid 5STARS. Hopefully we will get more Mason POV's and more Logan time with his POV as well. Chapter 20 and the bonus scene made me smile.

FFD Book 4 cannot get here fast enough.

For anyone who is a fan of the Fallen Crest Series this book is an absolute must read. For anyone who has not read the Fallen Crest Series yet.. Hell you don't know what you are missing !!!!

This book take place before Fallen Crest, its concentrates on the two brothers Mason and Logan (the hot moody badass duo) and is told in Mason's POV.
I found this book incredibly emotional, we already know and love these boys and this book takes us back about 4 years previous to Fallen Crest High and fills us

Overall, this was a great addition to the series and it provided further insight to Mason, Logan, and Nate. It covers quite an extensive period in their lives from Tate coming on the scene to Sam's arrival. I didn't like seeing Mason with other girls and I almost felt aggrieved on Sam's part which is ridic because 1) they are fictional characters and 2) Sam hadn't come into his life yet. I got all grrrr whenever Kate was in it, and I would have loved to reach into my Kindle and strangle the mani ...more

4 solid Mason Kade HOT stars!

It was great to get into Masons head and see his loyalty and his love for Logan! Those Lade brothers are some of my favorite!! I am a little sad about where the book ended. I wanted to get into his head with Sam, and the last 2 pages were definitely not enough!!

This also took you into behind the scenes action with Kate and Mason, and Tate, Logan and Mason... and Nate's rations hip with Mason.

Great quick read in between the waiting for Fallen Forth Down!

Mason (Fallen Crest High, #0.5) by Tijan by Tijan

You know it’s funny how a lot of people say they wish they were rich. But the rich are worse or have gone through the same thing as people who aren’t broke. Mason, takes care of his brother Logan like other children who are the oldest have taken care of their siblings or sibling. This actually real life situation, that goes on where the parents argue divorce and children see everything. Some end up being reckless. And I figure Mason was younger

Rated 4.5 Stars

I didn't discover Mason's story until I was reading the 4th book in the series. Although it was out of order, I really appreciated the insight it gave me on Mason's past. No wonder he's such a tough guy, he has been through a whole lot.

I would recommend this book because it will give the reader a more in-depth look at Mason's life and will help you understand him better in the following books.
