White Trash Beutiful by Teresa Mummert

I picked this book up in paperback because of the title and the beautiful cover. After reading the  back cover I just had to have it. I am so glad that the cover caught my eye and that I decided to buy it. This has to be one of the best rags-to-princess stories I have ever had the pleasure of picking up! Here's an over view of the book and then I will give you my take on it.


A word-of-mouth bestseller that’s captivating readers with its honesty, grit, and headstrong heroine, White Trash Beautiful is a story for anyone who has ever felt trapped in life, cheated by love—and longed for something more . . .
Cass Daniels isn’t waiting for her knight in shining armor. She knows that girls like her don’t get a happily ever after. Not if you live in a trailer with your mom, work at a greasy spoon diner, and get leered at by old men. Maybe that’s why she puts up with Jackson—her poor excuse for a boyfriend, who treats her like dirt. Cass has learned to accept her lot in life. That is, until he walks into her diner. . . .
His name is Tucker White, and he’s different from any man Cass has ever known. Tall, tattooed, and bad-ass gorgeous, he’s the lead singer of the rock band Damaged. From the moment they meet, Tucker sees something in Cass he just can’t shake. Something beautiful. Something haunted. Something special. And he’s determined to find out what it is—if only he can get her to open up and let him in. . . .

Cass is a waitress who works at a run down diner and lives in a small trailer park on the other side of the diner's parking lot. She had her dad walk out on her and her mom when she was little and after that her mom had a string of boyfriends who tried things when her mom was too strung out to pay attention. Luckily she had Jax around to keep them at bay. But then Jax started using drugs and everything changed.

All Cass dreams about is making enough money to escape with her mom. She knows that Jax isn't any good for her, but she stays with him because she is afraid to leave him. He is mean when he is sober, but even worse when he is strung out which is 95% of the time. Plus there are times when he is sober that she sees the boy that she fell in love with and she thinks that if she could get him help, Jax will go back to that boy. But Jax doesn't want help.

One day Tucker walks into her diner and her whole life changes. She doesn't know who he is or that his is on his way to being famous. All she knows is that he is one of the most beautiful guys she has ever seen and he can take her attitude and make her smile. So when he keeps coming back daily, even after witnessing Jax come in and get mean, she starts to let down her walls around him and get to know him. She does the unthinkable and even goes out on a date with him. But when she realizes how close he is getting she tries to push him away.

All Tucker wants to do is protect Cass from Jax and get her away from all her problems, but Cass doesn't think she is worthy of him. I love how the relationship between Cass and Tucker unfolds and how she starts to realize that she deserves much better than what she is getting from Jax. I love the way that Tucker doesn't care what anyone else says about Cass, he knows what he wants and he goes for it. But Tucker has problems of his own to deal with, and when things get complicated with Cass, he couldn't be happier that e finally has a good reason to get her away from Jax and the trailer park.

But then tragedy strikes and Cass runs off trying to protect herself and Tucker from the pain. She finds a new job and apartment under a different name trying to hide away. But Tucker finds her in the end and convinces her that no matter what happens, they belong together.

This story gets you really emotional. There are parts where I was so angry with what was happening, to turn around and be super happy with the way things go. There were a few parts where I shed some tears and the ending made me super happy and looking for the next book White Trash Damaged. I have to give this book 5 stars because it just amazed me that much. If you want to see for yourself what I mean, go pick it up today!
