If you're looking for a heartwarming story about a girl who falls deeply in love with a troubled boy who changes her life--a sob story with pretty metaphors and a million ways that'll tell you how "broken" she is, STOP. Don't read another word of this.

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...

Sunny's Review:

This book is really good. My mouth literally hung open at the beginning of this book. You get to see all the words of "wisdom" from Emerald's mother. It is interesting to see what some people think is important. I liked getting to see Emerald grow up a little bit and see that she has more issues than even she knows.
Carter is awesome in that he doesn't judge Emerald for the things that she is doing to survive. Instead he actually helps her get to and from work and watches her when she asks. He is pretty understanding on all fronts. I mean he is pretty much perfect. I was really mad at her towards the end and I can't wait for the next book.
I am going to give this book 4 out of 5 stars. I really like it and you are dealing with some situations that you don't normally see.
