Book In The Spotlight - White Trash Beautiful by Teresa Mummert

I have chosen the lovely Teresa Mummert's brand spankin' new book White Trash Beautiful (currently ranked #1 at!!) to break my Spotlight cherry, hopefully she'll be gentle.

“That’ll kill ya, you know.” A deep voice called from in front of me. My eyes shot open. A man in worn out dark wash jeans and a form fitting dark grey t-shirt that said ‘I’m with the band’ stood in front of me, motorcycle helmet in hand. His head was cocked to the side with a half grin playing across his lips. His hair was dark and unruly, but something told me he took time to make it look so effortless. His arms had elaborate tattoos to the wrists.
                “Not fast enough.” I rolled my eyes and took another drag. He laughed as he ran over his hair from back to front and nodded his head, turning to enter the diner through the front door. He stopped for a moment, his back to me like he had something to say, but didn’t. He disappeared inside without a backward glance. At least my shitty life was entertainment for someone else." -- Tucker and Cassidy

I've been a fan of Teresa ever since I picked up Honor Thy Teacher and couldn't put it down til I read the very last word. This book did not disappoint. It is a bit different from what her other books but just as fantastic. Cassie is a strong character even if she doesn't feel she is.  Feeling stuck in a situation she is not happy in she remains determined to escape and make her life better. I can definitely relate and it made me connect with her even more.

I was entranced with the story from the get go and fully engaged in finding out more about the characters and just like with her first book I couldn't put it down. The romance was sweet with plenty of steam and the secondary characters were so well written you are just dying to know more about them. Luckily we will be getting more as Teresa intends to continue the story of Cassie and Tucker and we will get to find out more about the twins (you'll see *wink*).

I most definitely recommend this book. Why are you still here? Go, buy it, Read!!
