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. . . .
I read this one in a single day. I could not put it down!
It doesn’t matter what the economic circumstances of your childhood were. You will relate to Cass and her struggle to feel deserving of the love being offered to her. You will also relate to Tuck and the pull between two dreams and the desire to own them both. I found it harder to relate to Anne and Jax who have allowed drugs to take over and rule their lives.
All of the characters are believable and quickly became real in my mind.
I won’t mention the editorial misses, since the book was provided with a note saying that it was an unedited rough draft.
I will definitely be looking for more books from Ms. Mummert!
