White Trash Beautiful by Teresa Mummert

A great quick read by a great author.  I read the Honor Series by Teresa Mummert a few month’s ago and I’m patiently waiting for another book for that series.  So when I saw this book on a Goodreads.com book list I decided if this author wrote it, I would most likely enjoy it.  I was not wrong.  It was nice to read a book about a girl that doesn’t come from a home with a white picket fence.  Real world people with real world problems – you can probably figure out by reading my reviews that these are the books I like the best.  I don’t want a canned love story.  I want the characters to work for it.  Real life isn’t easy and I don’t want my books to make it less than it is.

Cass’s character was really well written.  I rooted for her all throughout the book.  Tucker’s character was good also.  I’d like to know more about how he grew up.  There is a few parts where it alludes to the fact he didn’t come from much but I’d like some back story on him.  I’d also love to see some more story for the Twisted Twins.  Maybe a 3rd book? I’d definitely recommend the book.  I downloaded it after dinner and as usual was finished before I went to bed.

I’m really sad that the 2nd book in the series, White Trash Damaged,  isn’t coming out until January 2014.

Started & Finished: March 11

I purchased it from Amazon.com

First in a stunning new trilogy by New York Times bestselling author Teresa Mummert.

“I’m not naive. I know I don’t get the happily ever after. My knight in shining armor took the highway detour around this god forsaken shit hole. I’ve made peace with that. That doesn’t mean I’m going to lay down like a doormat and let every cocky prick in the trailer park have his way with me.”

Cass lives a depressing life in a small trailer park in Eddington, Georgia, with her mother and abusive boyfriend Jackson. She works hard to barely make ends meet. But everything changes when Tucker White, the lead singer in the band Damaged, walks into her diner. He tries to show her that there is more to life than the hand she has been dealt, but Cass soon learns that being with Tucker will come at a high price.
