My Paris and Grayson:

"I forget who I am.
Instead, I become who I need to be.
A Toxic Girl."

Paris is bit of a mystery - prefers to keep to herself, trying not to attract much attention. Desire to be invisible, that's one of the reason she had moved to new town, to new college. And what she doesn't need is attractive and popular boy Grayson to be interested in her. Especially with the kind of job she does to pay the debts and bills...

I am glad to say, that this is not usual NA story with

***3 Grayson Stars***


Toxic Girl by Chantal Fernando focuses on Paris, an ordinary college working student except she is not. In the daytime, she is a student but at night she is Snow, a stripper at club called Toxic hence she is a Toxic girl. This is not a job that Paris intended for but she has to do what's needed in order to pay off a debt incurred by her sister, London. Paris tries to keep her a job a secret and limits socialization. But all that changes when Grayson Mills walks into her

Holy Jesus, I got the shivers from this blurb. Who is Grayson? I'm not gonna lie, I LOVE it when the Hero does what ever he can to get the girl. Oh come on, you know you love it too. 2014 can't come soon enough!

Uh. This book was.... alright?
To be honest, I read this book because I couldn't get one of the reviews out of my head and I honestly read this to humour myself. Overall, it was okay.
Grayson was constantly doing stupid shit and apologizing and then Paris would take him back. That literally happened 6 times in this book.
The stupid debt shit with London.. I couldn't even comprehend the shit that went down and how could you have such a shitty sister? Same thing with Brody, like .. This fucked up

I LOVED this Book as much as I Loved "Maybe this Time" & "This Time Around" Grayson & Paris were Great with each other! This Book showed that sometimes Love does Conquer All! I Love that Chantal brought in 2 Characters from the other 2 Books, as Briefly as it was, I loved it!!! And wanted to Jump through the Book a Punch Dylan in the Face! If you like Reid & Summer and Ryan & Taiya's Books you'll LOVE "Toxic Girl" too! A MUST READ...Go buy it NOW!!!

Oh how I loved this book! This is my first taste of Chantal Fernando’s writing and let me tell you, it will not be my last. Toxic Girl is a love story….a love story between Paris and Grayson whose journey is filled with jealousy and secrets but ultimately love.

Paris has a secret….a secret she is not proud of but one she cannot help. Thank God Ms. Fernando did not make me wait too long to find out, yet the beauty of the secret was how it was going to get leaked. I was pretty much glued

I loved this book I started reading it at 9 pm and had it read by 11:30 lol which wasn't one of my best idea with having to get up for work the next day lol anyway I would give yourself time and a comfy chair as this book will have you hooked and you not want to put it down. Really enjoyed the relationship between Grayson and Paris although at times I wanted to give them both. Slap and tell them to sort there selfs out.

Okay, Chantal never disappoints me. I love this story, Grayson and Paris, just love them. I also love the others, especially London. She's crazy, but funny. If you have not read this book, then your missing out!!!

4-4.5 stars. At first glance, it would seem that this story is about Paris and how she has a job that she does at night which she is trying to keep a secret because she wants a fresh start to her life without the judgment or reputation, but there's more to it. She immediately catches the eye of Grayson, who decides he will get to know her no matter what. Paris may be beautiful on the outside and have some very talented dance moves, but she is actually introverted and she works hard in school so ...more

4 stars!

I love it from the start. I like the writing style and read the novel word for word.

What I hate the most in MOST novels is that the heroine usually compares herself to her friends or bestfriend and not in a good way, they usually point out how beautiful, how tall, how rich, how perfect their friends are compared to them. In this book, that didn't happen.

OMFG! He slept with Paris' sister and thought that Paris was London!! How awful!! And that is the reason why he chased after Paris coz

I really enjoyed this book. It had just the right amount of drama and angst. Paris was a fabulous character I love her strong personality and take no crap attitude.
One thing that annoyed me with the characters was there hot and cold attitude they argued a little to much.
But when they was happy with each other they were so sweet.
The blurb drew me in!

This book was kind of a let down...I expected more from Chantal Fernando.

I didn't feel the chemistry between Paris and Grey and truthfully Paris was kind of a bitch sometimes to him and she would get mad at him for stupid reasons.

I gave the book a chance and finished it but truth be told I almost gave up at the middle of the book.

I liked London (Paris's bitchy sister) more than the main character and that is saying something.

If you like the books by Chantal Fernando (like I do) give it a try

WTF was that?
I don't think I would've finished if it wasn't so short. That was like a bad reality tv show, like a real bad one. where drama just kept happening, no build up or proper chemistry between the h & the guy. Just bam, they're in love in the first 20-30PERCENT?
why, oh why did i fall for the cover and the excerpt. i'm sorry author, i like your other books but this was just a let down.
too much drama, too rushed. felt like reading some-one's diary, who stated down the most whackiest
Short story with a million threads, I don't feel a connection to characters and their history, a lot was happening, but it was a jump from one to another moments. Lacks background of the story.

Extra star for London her character was great but also raised a lot of contradictions.

This was an okay book. Overall, I enjoyed the story, but it wasn't the best work I've read by any means.

Paris is the main character and is a pretty guarded girl. She has had a lot of family issues since her parents died. When her sister comes into trouble for owing a guy some money, Paris steps up and takes over her debt, essentially, and ends up becoming a stripper to manage it. She despises her job and tries to lie low to avoid unwanted attention while she tries to make it through school and

So the blurb didn't even begin to explain what this book was about. Pretty much, Paris (terrible name) is a stripper until like 30% in. She meets Grayson, Richie rich, at school, and of course, hides it from him. This book was SUPER similar to Stripped by Jasinda Wilder, to the point where I thought I'd read this book before.

I liked Paris even though I thought she was far too sensitive, and I ADORED London and Aiden. They were by far my favorite

It's a really great book based on honest characters and a lot more real than a lot of the books I've read. I feel like it has an element that everyone can relate to. Not your typical romance book. It's well written and I'm glad I read it. Definitely recommend it :)

The moment I saw the cover and read the title of this story, I know it's going to be intense that’s why I prepared myself for that. But what I'm not prepared about is that I'm going to read it that night, let alone read it that fast!

This story is about Paris who works as a stripper to a club named Toxic. During her first day of College, she bumped into Grayson. Her plan of being out of the spotlight and live “as much as possible” a normal life started to change that day.

Honestly, I have a love

Ultimately I did enjoy this book but I felt like the female lead may have forgave too easily in some parts and overreacted in some. Even though the fact that she was a stripper was supposed to be the main focus of her character I kind of feel like it wasn't the main focus, kind of like it was just a small detail in the scheme of things.
