For the longest time, I was Bren Monroe.
I lived in Roussou, California.
I had no parents, no brother, but I had a crew.
Then things started to change.
I never planned for any of it.
I didn’t think I’d fall in love.
I didn’t think I’d have a relationship with my brother again.
I didn’t think that he’d come back.
Now I’m in Cain.
My crew is in college.
They’re growing, going through their own things.
And here I am, figuring out my life.
There’s always hurdles and obstacles to overcome.
That was never my hardship.
That was my regular.
But living? Being content? Being happy?
Those were my challenges now.
Everything was going well…
Until it wasn’t. Again.
A/N: Always Crew is the conclusion of the Crew Series, and a 106k novel.
Tijan delivered exactly what I wanted to conclude this series. With each turn of the page, I fell in love with this group of friends a little more. Their bond and love for each other speak volumes.
As their lives begin to change, Bren's crew goes off to college. Leaving Bren behind was not an option to Cross. Where he went, Bren went. She may not be attending school, but she would always be by his side. As we all know, Bren is broken and Cross and her crew have always been the glue that held her together.
Bren is sort of lost in life, not sure what she wants to do, or where she fits in anymore. When an opportunity sort of falls in her lap, she takes the job at a bounty hunter's office. Little does she know, it wasn't a coincidence. With her overprotective brother along with Cross and her crew, she always has a family to lean on. But we all know, sometimes Bren doesn't always share everything, she keeps things bottled up inside. With the bond she and Cross share, it is difficult to keep anything from him. Cross is her rock. He keeps her grounded and loves the many sides of Bren, the good and the ugly.
When her father returns to her life after being in prison, Bren doesn't know where he can fit into her life, or even if there is room for him. Their past will always be at the forefront of her mind. Somethings can never be forgiven. The ghost of her past eats at her each and every day until she breaks.
Bren needs to go on this journey on her own in order to heal, but Cross is never far from her side. I LOVE the connection the two of them have. They always know what the other is thinking without ever speaking a single word. One look shared between them and their minds are connected.
Tijan wrapped this series up perfectly. I am sad to see the series end, but I LOVE how she did it. Bren and Cross deserved nothing but a happily ever after, especially after all they've been through.
