Crew – Tijan


Crew – Tijan



TIJAN is an author I’ll will always drop everything and anything for a chance to read her latest book. And CREW was one hell of a raw and gritty rollercoaster ride.

I didn’t know what CREW really was about, I just new it was written by TIJAN and that was enough for me. I love her writing style and have been a fan of her work for years now. Going through all of her books, I would say CREW is one of her grittier and darker YA novels.

The emotional tension was high throughout the entire book. It was skirting the edges of OMG a couple times and it certainly left me wanting to know more. The entire premise was an utter surprise for me. Not only the location but also the characters took me completely by surprise. There was no way I could have seen any of the developments or revelations coming – call me INTRIGUED.

Here are the things I can tell you about this book without going into too much details:

lIt’s a friends to lovers romance.

iIt’s emotionally charged and delivers everything a fan of TIJAN would expect.

lIt’s slow burn.

It has an AMAZING male character. He reminded me so much of Mason. His steadfast personality, quiet but intense demeanor, and his utter and absolute devotion towards the heroine was something I fell in love with him immediately. DREAMY!!!

The heroine was KICKASS!!! This girl was one of the coolest chicks TIJAN has written so far. She stood her ground, was ballsy and bold, and had so many layers that it will take more than one book to completely discover them all. I couldn’t believe some of the things she did but it fit her to a T. WOWZER!!!

CREW really got me going around the halfway point. At that point I was grinning and sighing non-stop. The camaraderie and friendships in this novel were wonderful – again it reminded me of my favorite trio. There was so much heart and loyalty in this book – it’s something the author does very well.

In the end CREW definitely left me wanting for more. It was reminiscent of her older works in regards to pace, formatting and plot construction. I want more of CREW, more of the supporting characters, but most of all more of the kickass heroine and the hero. This book has so much promise – being EPIC is just around the corner.

Tijan did what she does best…penned a compelling Young Adult book. The drama and angst are provided by beautifully flawed and complex characters.

Here’s what you get:

An amazing start
Slowburn love story
Amazing chemistry
Complex characters
A dramatic storyline
The blurb and cover are to die for

The main characters are intricately constructed. Bren is such an enigma. A glorious question mark mired in unspoken grief. Peeling back her layers was such a treat. The psychology of the characters was AMAZING. Her inner thoughts and issues subtly take on a shape of their own. I was fascinated and completely invested in her story. Cross is one word – PERFECTION! Gah, I couldn’t love him or his connection to Bren more. ASTOUNDING!

The secondary characters, storyline and writing are all what you’d expect from this phenomenal author. My only issue was a slight lag in the middle. I have to admit, the slowburn got to me. I wanted to get to the main action, so it felt a little slow in places. Other than that, I had no issues. I’m looking forward to seeing what else is in store!

To survive where I live, you have two options.

You can be a Normal—a cheerleader, jock, member of the debate team, or on the yearbook committee. You pretend everything is normal.

Or you can be crew.
You insult us? We hurt you.
You hurt us? We really hurt you.
And if you f*ck with us, we will end you.

My name is Bren.
I’m the only female in the Wolf Crew—the best, fiercest, and most dangerous crew there is—and we have a rule: There’s no falling in love.

Well… too late.

  1. You guys nailed this review! (I loved the double, BTW.) I cannot wait to read more about these characters. When I read the end where she said there would be more of a lot of stuff I was so happy!

    1. Me too, for me, the beginning of a series is always slow, and I want more of them together. I’m super glad it’s a trilogy. So much awesomeness to come.
