Meh. White Trash Beautiful has all the necessary tools for a potential kick arse story. Abused heroine with a drugged out boyfriend and mom, a dead in job, a potential white knight rock star hero. What we get is a harlequin-esque YA that takes every possible cliche and trope, spins it around a few times, then ends. I wanted this to be good. I wanted this to overwhelm me. I didn't want a foul mouth heroine who indecisive nature causes her to cheat, lie, and eventually allow her beta hero to whisk her away; but only after the requisite confrontation and devastating moment.

To say I'm disappointed is an understatement.

Kenya Wright wow.... is this good?

(Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick Eh. Still in setting up the storyline. Not bad but I'm ready for some action.

message 3: by Kenya (new)

Kenya Wright can't wait to see your review. I'm on the fence with this one.

message 4: by (Tori-Smexybooks) (last edited Sep 21, 2012 01:28PM) (new) - rated it 2 stars

(Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick Im 50% in and while enjoying, it's not a remarkable read. Premise is economically poor abused girl, trapped in a go nowhere life, catches the eye of rock star. I don't want this to be a 'white knight rides into save her' story. I want her to save herself and go to him on equal footing. I do admit though, she has a snarky attitude that I like.

message 5: by Kenya (new)

Kenya Wright well the premise sounds interesting. I do get that the typical Disny-anti-feminist-view of a rich man saves poor useless female puts a sour to the uniqueness. :-)

message 6: by Kenya (new)

Kenya Wright but. . . does it explain why she is laying on the ground butt naked? I mean goodness too poor to have clothes?

(Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick I just want different. I want strong. He can save her, but she has to be willing to put in some effort. *sigh* It's probably me though. I'm in a crap mood. lol Nothing is pleasing me.

Kenya Wright ouch! 2 stars...

I loved Easy. *romantic sigh* Heck, I liked Beautiful Disaster. I'm thinking of starting The Mighty Storm.Have you read that one?

message 11: by Kenya (new)

Kenya Wright no I actually havn't. When are you going to read it? Maybe I'll try it with you. I just sent the sample to my kindle fire.

(Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick Probably tonight or tomorrow. I have a review book to do first.

Kenya Wright ooo did you read Dublin Street?

(Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick Yes. LOVED!! Such an enjoyable new adult rom comp.

message 15: by Kenya (new)

Kenya Wright gooness I need you to reccommend stuff to me then. :-(

(Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick What do you like? I read it ALL. Except straight westerns. Those scare me. And civil war books. My step father was a civil war prof and he pretty much ruined that era for me. lol

message 17: by Kenya (new)

Kenya Wright lol@civil war professor... that's quite interesting. If I ever need research on that I'm coming to you.

I love anything with romance. I usually only read fantasy. Recently, I've been dipping into other genres. I write so I think its important to not only be well-read but no about other genres. Which is how I stumbled on to the popular romances like 50 shades, a beautiful disaster, etc

I'm really loving this genre! Oh god I just finished EASY! I'm so glad I gave it a try!

(Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick Ok. Have you read Kristen Ashley or Shelly Laurenston?Both are my go to crack books. Romance, sex, laughter, mystery, suspense, and more. I re read them all the time.

Bark's Book Nonsense The premise sounded so good I almost bought it but the execution sounds terrible.

It was poorly done.
