“I’m not naive. I know I don’t get the happily ever after. My knight in shining armor took the highway detour around this god forsaken shit hole. I’ve made peace with that. That doesn’t mean I’m going to lay down like a doormat and let every cocky prick in the trailer park have his way with me.”

About the book:
Cass lives in a trailer park with her drug addict mother and boyfriend Jack. Jack is not only a drug addict but he also abuses Cess. Everything seems to change when Tucker the lead singer from Damaged comes into the diner. Seen how Cess is been abused, he takes it upon himself to teach Cess that not every guy is like Jack. But Cess knows thats its too late for her happy ever after, all this happiness will end one the day Tucker leaves. When Tucker leaves to keep touring, Cess decides to make the best of her broken life. She is able to make her mother stop doing drugs and takes her to meetings. Once again Cess gets the chance to see Tucker again, when his band is close by. That night Cess learns she is pregnant with Tuckers child. But will Jack let her leave just like that? Will she pack up and leave the life she has made herself believe was not so bad?
We constantly hear about woman not leaving the man that is abusing her because they are scared to. This book puts you in the mind of one of the many woman. A woman that truly believes that this is the life that she is meant to live, and is just happy she can escape it for a few hours, in hopes that she will not get caught. I have given it a 3 out of 5 stars on goodreads.com for story line, and for been predictable. It was a simple read and I got to say that I will be reading the second book, Beautifully Damaged, no released date has been given.
