Review: ALWAYS CREW (Crew Series #3) by Tijan

 Always Crew, the all-new emotional and angsty finale of the Crew series by New York Times bestselling author Tijan is available now! 


Author: Tijan 

Series: Crew #3

Genre: NA romance

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.

While I really enjoyed the previous two books in this series, Always Crew is my favorite!  The author has this incredible ability to create characters that are uniquely complex, flawed, and real.  I have become so invested in these characters and their stories that it is a tad bittersweet that the series is over.  That being said, the journey the author takes the reader on is remarkable and she truly does them all justice.

This book is predominantly told from Bren’s POV, but there are a few chapters from Cross and even Zellman  & Jordan which I loved.  As with the previous two books, it took me a minute to re-warm up to Bren as she is abrasive at times and occasionally too quick to spring into action.  She has her flaws, but she also had this deep seated loyalty and all encompassing love towards her crew which is what endeared her to me.  She has greatly evolved as a character and that is even more visible in this novel. Cross remains a steadfast boyfriend who just “gets” Bren.  He truly knows her, perhaps even better than she knows herself.  Zellman  and Jordan are still two of my favorite characters and it was wonderful that we got to see a lot more of them in this book.

While Bren is the main heroine in Always Crew, the supporting characters are all entertaining in their own right and have their own place in the developing story.  That is one the things that makes this series so exceptional - the intriguing dynamic that occurs between Bren and her crew as well as with some of the others present in the book. Some relationships fall apart.  Some become stronger.  And some are newly forged. 

Having read this book in one sitting, I can tell you that this engaging book moves at a great pace and will definitely capture your attention. The author skillfully weaves together a story full of emotion, action, heat, and some intriguing revelations. One thing that is apparent after all this time, is that while high school is over and that some things change, they will always be crew.

Note: Always Crew is the third and final book in the Crew series.  Crew & Crew Princess must be read first.  This series is a standalone, but there are a few characters that the reader will recognize from other books, especially Blaise and Aspen from Rick Prick.
