This was a very unique story; I can definitely say that I have not read one like it.

Charisa Martin used to believe in living the life of a princess, yet turbulent times in her life have prevented her from doing just that. All Charisa (Cherry) wants to do is keep her head low and survive, but the man that has developed an obsession with her makes it impossible...

Sawyer is living the life but when he gets a glimpse of Cherry, he's intrigued and wants to know more about her anyway possible.

WOW !! I loved this book to "the moon and back" it was really emotional reading the heartbreak that Cherry goes through.
The prologue pulled me in straight away and had me hooked then chapter 1 skips forward some years telling us how Cherry's life which is perfect suddenly changes at the drop of a hat.
She doesn't think she can let anyone in to her heart as she thinks she will just get let down or hurt again so finds it very hard to open up to others and trust. Then we meet Sawyer who becomes dra
There were a lot of aspects of this book that I enjoyed. Unfortunately, there were also a lot of aspects that I just couldn't connect with. Cherry'y life was terrible and I felt for her. I even teared up in the beginning. I really liked Sawyer and I was happy they found each other. I think the overall premise of the story was good and I would like to check out more from this author.

4 stars!

I really enjoyed this book. The first few chapters broke my heart. The author writes Cherry from a young child's POV and does it very well. I really felt like I was in the mind of a little girl.

Poor Cherry (h) she had been through so much at such a young age and just when you think she might get a break she goes through heartache, shock and deception all over again and in the worse way possible. How can a person not be broken after what she'd been through? I don'

4 out of 5 stars

This book was not what I was expecting, but I don’t mean that in a bad way. When we first meet Cherry, we already know that her life has not been good. We know that she’s running from something - and probably more likely someone. After the first few chapters, I already knew that she had a past that most people wouldn’t survive. In fact, I was mesmerized by the fact that she could interact with people the way she did and that she was in such a public job.

The first time we met the

I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised with Chrissy's first book. The story was engaging, touching, sexy and heartfelt. So much pain filled Cherry's life you couldn't help but feel for her. She went through so much and just wanted to be loved. Her trust issues were not unexpected. She dealt with some horrible people who crushed her. Yet I found Cherry to be a very strong character. She beat all odds and came out a fighter. Her choices, however, with stripping were not what I wished for her, bu ...more

Get your tissues ready

The first 6 chapters of this book just straight gutted me. But what an amazing story. It's full of raw emotions and deals with things that effect real people's lives. I'm so glad I read this book.

If you are looking for a book with a damaged girl and an alpha male, this one is for you. This is a story of love, loss, and the power to overcome the cards we are dealt in life. I gave it 3.5 - 4 Stars because the storyline was there, but the execution was a little off for me. But all in all, I would recommend you give this new author a try.

Cherry had everything a little girl could want as a child, a fairy tale life down to the princess canopy bed. When life decided to throw her family

ACCEPTING CHERRY is a story about surviving and living with choices made under duress. The main character, Cherry, is an idealistic young girl who loses everything in the short space of six months. She goes from a happy child who dreams of princesses and Prince Charmings to a friendless girl living in a tragic situation. Somehow she rises above it, finding that Prince Charming isn’t the knight on a white horse, but a black Harley-Davidson.

There’s a lot of development to this tale, starting with

~~I received this in exchange for my honest opinion~~

Where do I even begin with this book? At first I was sad for Cherry, she lost the one thing that meant anything to her. It wasn't just about who she lost, it was the was that they went about hiding the truth from her. The lack of emotion and respect that her own mother had for Cherry was the hardest part. However, Cherry overcame all of that to get where she is today.

Cherry goes through hell and back multiple times. She picks herself up and

I enjoyed this read. It was light and different. I really like the plot line. Cherry shows that you can endure bad situations in life and recover, even if slowly. Just because you have a bad start in life doesn't mean it has to bleed into the future. I liked watching her grow and trust Sawyer. Sawyer was your typical college aged good guy. I really liked him. He saw something that enticed him and he never strayed. I am glad he got rid of Mandy, though. One thing I liked was that he never got jea ...more

Great book concurs all

The first few chapters really gutted me, I cried. I had to stop a couple of times to look out the window to come back to reality. I'm feeling really sad for Cherry.
Cherry was a happy little girl who's daddy loved her very much and called her Princess Cherry Berry. Things turn for the worst when her daddy gets sick and passes away. Her mother resents her and she is so mean, nasty and always belittling her. Nobody wants to be her friend, they think she's dirty and poo

If I could give this book 1/2 * I would have.

I kept on preserving with this book, hoping it would redeem itself. No it didn't.

I don't like giving bad reviews, but this book made me feel like I wasted my time and money.

The reasons are - the writing style and story. First of all for the first 6 chapters, it was written
so immaturely and it dragged on. To make the point of Cherry's backstory, the author could
have condensed it down to 2 pages or paragraphs. Secondly her style of writing, you just cou

I started reading Accepting Cherry with an open mind knowing Chrissy Snyder was a new Author I wanted to give her a chance. I know it had gotten mixed reviews but I didn't listen to any of those and wanted to be able to give my own review at the end.
I have to say it started out slow, but oh my heart hurt for Cherry. She truly was a Daddys girls and her mother was so evil. The girl had been through so much is her young life and she was only 23 and the blows kept coming. I just wanted to hold her

I didn't know what to expect when I was reading Accepting Cherry after seeing the mixed reviews posted by other reviewers. I am glad that I got a chance to read Accepting Cherry. It was a good book and I enjoyed reading it. In the beginning it was really depressing and sad to see what Cherry had to go through as a child growing up. Cherry thought of herself as a princess and wanted to find her prince charming. Her daddy always would rea

I received this book from United Indie Book Blog for an honest review. I gave this book a 4.5 but rounded up!
Right from the beginning Accepting Cherry pulled me in and kept me reading until the very end. Love that we get to start with a POV of a younger Cherry and her struggles she has to overcome at a young age. This does not break from the storyline, or take away from it but lays the foundation that we need to know and understand Cherry. Sawyer, his character at first seemed a little superfic

Cherry's life goes from Disney Princesses to torment and bullies. One single moment starts a series of events that lands her in Sawyer's path. Sawyer's life was perfect.....well, except for that one family secret.

Can Cherry and Sawyer find the Happily Ever After they deserve, or will the sins of their pasts destroy their happiness?

Chrissy Snyder does an amazing job of creating characters you will love, hate, and some you might even connect with. I laughed, cried, and I wanted to throttle a few

I usually start off explaining the characters but I'm doing it differently with this book..... I lost my dad to cancer a cpl years ago an the first 5 chapters to Cherry's childhood I cried bc I so relate how she felt losing her dad to cancer.... I cried an ugly cry an not even half way through the book... Cherry never recovered from the loss of her dad an she has such a disconnect with her mom that she is living at the Dinner Roll diner.

I received this book by the author herself as a prize in a contest and I must say how much I enjoyed it. I felt so bad for Cherry to have been put through so much. Sawyer what an amazing guy. Just all that he does for her, my only objection was the end seemed really rushed, but I am looking forward to reading more from this author.
