If you’re looking for a heartwarming story about a girl who falls deeply in love with a troubled boy who changes her life–a sob story with pretty metaphors and a million ways that’ll tell you how “broken” she is, STOP. Don’t read another word of this.
I’m not that type of girl.
My name is Emerald Anderson and I’m not going to bullshit you: I flunked out of college after my sophomore year, I’ve been fired from every job I’ve ever taken, and I’ve never had a fully functioning relationship in my life.
I wish I could say that I had a cheerleader in my corner, someone who says, “No, Emerald–You’re great and you are good at something!” but I don’t. My grandparents are completely oblivious to my life, and my mother’s dying words to me were “You’re going to end up just like me one day. A beautiful nothing.”
She was right.
As I decide to start my life over and take two jobs that will forever change me–one from the inside, and one from the outside, I keep my mother’s words close to my heart so I can keep the sexy and mysterious Carter Black away.
He’s the first man who’s ever pursued me, the first man who seems bent on finding out why I am the way I am, but he’s wasting his time.
I’m not broken. I don’t need to be fixed. I’m perfectly fine being a beautiful failure…
This book had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. The emotions were intense, the characters were intriguing, and the story line was captivating. I had a very hard time putting my tablet down to do “normal” things. I could have easily read this in one sitting.
Poor Emerald is seriously f*#cked up. Here mother did a serious number on her. But besides all of that she meets Carter and he won’t go away. Despite her every attempt (and mostly rude ones) he just keeps coming around. He’s patient, passionate, caring, sweet, but also knows when to call her on her bullshit. They really make a great couple. Their banter had me cracking up and then Carter would get Emerald to open up a bit and it was really great to see.
This story flowed really well and I was easily drawn into Emerald’s world. I seriously feel emotionally invested in these characters and I’m dying to find out how things go in the second book, Beautiful Temptation. Emerald’s attitude and Carter’s perseverance make for one hell of a emotional rollercoaster. This was a great book and I can’t wait to see what happens next to Emerald and Carter. This was fantastic read and I’m giving it a 5 out of 5 books!
