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. . .
OMG! I could not put this book down. I was drawn in from page one and it didn’t let me go until the very end. White Trash Beautiful is so emotional. I cried several times. To me it seems that books that make you cry are typically great reads. This one didn’t disappoint. I was able to read this one in one sitting. It was that good.
I loved Cass Daniels from the beginning. I felt so bad for her. To say she was handed a bad lot in life is putting it mildly. The poor girl was stuck taking care of her drug addicted mother and boyfriend. Although Jackson is considered her boyfriend in this book he seemed anything but. He was abusive towards her, constantly wanted money to buy drugs, and didn’t work. A real prize if you ask me.
Cass has a secret she’s keeping from both her mother and Jackson. She’s been stashing money away in hopes of someday moving her mother, Jackson, and herself out of the rundown trailer park they are currently living in.
One day while working her dead-end job at the diner, Tucker White walks in. Tucker’s the lead singer for the band Damaged. A band that Cass likes. She doesn’t recognize him. What she does recognize is his tattoos, bad boy persona and his startling good looks.
I loved Tucker. He took an interest in Cass immediately. There was just something about her that drew him to her. He wanted to know more about her and to also protect her at the same time. Of course Cass thinks he’s only looking for a good time, but boy is she wrong.
The attraction between these two is apparent from the very start. I found myself rooting for Cass. I wanted Tucker to sweep her off her feet. I wanted them to become a couple. I wanted her to have a better life than the one she was currently living.
The sexual content in this one is pretty much mainstream and not overly explicit in nature. If I had to describe it in a word it would be sweet. I really thought that things would be steamy between these two. You know the “ripping each others clothes off.” That really wasn’t the case. Not that it was disappointing, because it wasn’t. I just thought it could use a bit more passion.
There is going to be another book after this one that comes out in October. It’s entitled White Trash Damaged. I cannot wait to read it. I hope it’s as amazing as this one.
Overall, I can’t say enough good things about this story. It’s defiantly one of the best books I’ve read this year. 5 Stars doesn’t quite seem enough. There’s just something about a book that captures your attention from the start, and keeps you turning page after page to see how things will end up.
