A word-of-mouth bestseller that’s captivating readers with its honesty, grit, and headstrong heroine, White Trash Beautiful is a story for anyone who has ever felt trapped in life, cheated by love—and longed for something more . . .
Cass Daniels isn’t waiting for her knight in shining armor. She knows that girls like her don’t get a happily ever after. Not if you live in a trailer with your mom, work at a greasy spoon diner, and get leered at by old men. Maybe that’s why she puts up with Jackson—her poor excuse for a boyfriend, who treats her like dirt. Cass has learned to accept her lot in life. That is, until he walks into her diner. . . .
His name is Tucker White, and he’s different from any man Cass has ever known. Tall, tattooed, and bad-ass gorgeous, he’s the lead singer of the rock band Damaged. From the moment they meet, Tucker sees something in Cass he just can’t shake. Something beautiful. Something haunted. Something special. And he’s determined to find out what it is—if only he can get her to open up and let him in. . . .
My Opinion 3 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and Gallery Threshold Pocket Books, for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
Things go really fast in this book in that you get insta-love especially on Tucker's side. Cass we find right from the beginning is the definition of trailer trash and has been working a diner job since she left school and basically pays for her boyfriend and mother to live.
Jax used to be a lovely person but has migrated to drugs and booze and now is the ultimate bad boy, but every once in a while the nice side comes out.
Cass's mother is also high on booze and drugs, thanks to Jax so Cass rarely gets any support from her mother.
Cass has a little too much internal monologue for my liking but the book is only told from her point of view.
Things change when Tucker basically starts to take most of her free time, and slowly things come to a head leaving one almighty blow out.
The story is written well, there are times you really feel sorry for Cass with her upbringing, but i never really got over the insta-love with the up and coming rock star.
