Book Tour+Review: Beautiful Failure by Mariah Cole

Title: Beautiful Failure
Author: Mariah Cole
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date:December 17, 2013 
My Rating:

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...

My Review
This book was phenomenal! I absolutely loved it from the first page to the last. It is dark, sexy, funny and sad all wrapped up in one awesomesauce of a book. It almost had me sitting in a corner rocking back and forth at times and in the next chapter I was laughing my ass of lol. 
Emerald is sush a sprite with a queen bitch attitude and real sass. I loved her personality!
She has lived a really shitty life with an alcoholic, insecure and childish mother and never seems to catch a break. After her mothers death she is sent to live with her grandparents. I felt myself rooting for her to get her shit together but time after time she failed. The book pulled me in so much that I found myself sitting and thinking "Noo Emerald, please keep quiet and don´t say that! Don´t you WANT to keep this job or what!" 
Then she meets Carter. *sigh* Im inlove.... 

Their love story is not your typical one and I really liked that. We don´t get to know Carter very much in this book more than that he is sexy, caring, sexy, smart mouthed, awesome in bed and oh..did i mention he was sexy? lol. I have a feeling we will in book 2 though.  I fell head over heals inlove with Emerald and Carters story and I can´t wait to read the next book about them. This book ended with somewhat of a cliffhanger making me yearn for it so much more.
