Finally Channing and Heather story, I’ve been in love with this world characters for a long time, having now their side of the story was a thrilling experience. It all starts in their childhood; the depth their story goes was beyond my expectation. I expected some things but their story blow me away. I was emotionally invested in each page. How their story went when they grew older was way beyond the usual romance I expected. Their connection was there, their pain, their love it was all there. Just perfect.

Tijan has done it again. She wrote another amazing book. It was time for Heather and Channing to have their story. Their struggles throughout the book were so heartfelt that you couldn't help but feel for them. And make you want that type of love in real life. I really recommend this book to everyone. Especially if your already a Tijan fan, this book will make you love her even more. Thanks Tijan your beyond awesome.

After reading Crew, book one in this series I couldn't wait to get my hands on the next one. While Crew was Bren's story, The Boy I Grew Up With tells Heather and Channing's story aaaand there are cross-overs to Fallen Crest , Sam, Logan and Mason- Yay. Heather Jax is a character that had me in knots. In Fallen Crest Series she wasn't my favorite character. She's too. Too independent, too prickly, too bitter. And now I learned why. Heather and Channing are friends first and foremost, lovers at a second. They know each other since forever, are very close and their story starts over a Trapper Keeper. They're living in different worlds - her in Fallen Crest with his milllionaires, Channing Monroe in Roussou and with their criminals. He's the leader of his own crew, is tangled up in underground fighting, some illegal business, violence. He's a hard man who cares foremost for his crew, then his sister and at the third place is Heather. Heather is tired and disappointed by Channing, feels left out, left behind. They have their upheavals, peaks and downfalls, again and again, break up, can't stay away, make up. Seems like they're toxic fior each other. Actions are easy, feelings difficult. The Boy I Grew Up With is a story that gave me all the feels. I laughed, I cried and at some point I was angry at the characters. I read the book a few days ago and had to stew a few days till I could write this review. I repeat, Heather wasn't my favorite person and still isn't. But her story captivated me from the beginning and I couldn't not read the book. I had to know what happens to her and Channing, Bren and her crew. The Boy I Grew Up With contains a bonus chapter of the Fallen Crest family and I greatly, greatly enjoyed reading about them. I recommend the book and give 5 stars.

Loved the story of Channing and Jax! I like to that we learn to their history right along with what was happening in the present time. I want to keep reading about what's happening with these characters. Hope we get to see what happens with the rest of the Fallen Crest crowd

10 billion stars!!! I don’t know about y’all but I have always loved Heather and now we get her story. She’s one of those characters that stays with you and Channing.... my God he’s a fine specimen. They’ve loved each other forever. Through. Ups and downs they’ve always been there for each other and had the others back. We get to see the softer side of Heather and I am so happy that the author showed it. Just like every other book that is written around Fallen Crest and Roussou you’re going to fall in love. You’re going to get a great story and you’re going to get phenomenal writing. Totally loved this!!!

I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED Channing and Heather's story! It was sweet, suspenseful, heart breaking, and beautiful. I haven't read any of the Fallen Crest Series, so my first introduction to Channing and Heather was in Crew. After reading Crew, I wanted to know so much more about them. I was so excited when this book was announced! "He'd worked his way under my skin in first grade. He'd declared us best friends in third. We held hands in fifth. We shared our first kiss in seventh, and he'd been a headache ever since." I loved how this story went back and forth between past and present. It really gives the reader insight into how they grew up together, fell in love, and why they were struggling independently and together in their relationship. "Channing had a face for the runways, a body of tattoos that could appear in any magazine, and an attitude that made him a leader among the rowdiest and most clinically inclined." Channing... HOLY HOTNESS! I salivated over his character. Alpha, bad-ass, and super sexy! He made me want to lick the pages! Only someone as fierce as Heather could handle all his bravado. Despite their inner strength, both Channing and Heather carried so much baggage. With Channing's intense perseverance and Heather's unyielding determination... these two were explosive! "There were no pretty words between us. There weren't flowery promises. There was just us. Our love. Our bodies. The addiction we had for each other. We were linked, like invisible chains. They were there, whether we wanted them or not." The growth that evolved between Channing and Heather was beautiful. I loved how they fought for their own happiness in addition to each other's. Through their trials and tribulations, their love for each other was unstoppable. I could not get enough of their story! "I am Fallen Crest. I am Roussou. This place is who I am". She looked up, our eyes meeting. "You are who I am." The Boy I Grew Up With was such an amazing read! It gave me all the feels and left me wanting more from the Roussou/Fallen Crest world. Whether you have read every Fallen Crest story or like me, are just getting started, I highly recommend! ♥ Review by Lys

The Boy I Grew Up With is gripping, emotionally raw, and full of heartbreak, undying love, suspense, and some seriously hot chemistry! It is the story of Heather and Channing who were characters were in this author’s Fallen Crest High series (this takes place after this series) and they were also in Crew, but don’t think that you know their story based off those books! While these two were featured in the other books, I do believe that you could get away with reading this as a standalone, but I do recommend starting with the FCH series. What an amazing book! This is perhaps my favorite book by Tijan. Heather and Channing have the most amazing love and their journey is full of ups and downs. They have been through so much and even during the times when their relationship was off again, they still had that intense connection and undying loyalty as friends and lovers. Appropriately, this book is told from a dual POV as I really enjoyed getting to see into the minds of both Channing and Heather. Heather was a totally hardcore heroine. She was strong and didn’t put up with anyone’s nonsense. Channing is a charismatic, caring, and loyal to a fault to his sister, his crew, and Heather. While both characters displayed great strength, they also had that vulnerability about them which made me love the more. The author does a great job showing how their relationship evolved over the years. She has flashbacks interspersed throughout the book, some of which had me laughing and others having my heart break. I also enjoyed getting to learn more about the background of the crew. The Boy I Grew Up will put you through all the feels. This is a great entertaining read with an engaging and unique storyline; well developed characters; and moves at a good pace. The epilogue is fantastic! For the FCH fans, Sam and Mason are briefly mentioned periodically throughout the book, but they do not have a prominent role. Thankfully, the author includes a bonus scene about them. I received this book as an ARC and I voluntarily leave this review.
