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...
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.
