5 StarsIn this highly anticipated follow-up to White Trash Damaged, Cass and Tucker have finally found their happily ever after, but can Eric, the band’s brooding drummer, ever let go of his past and find love?
From a small-town boy with fantasies of superstardom to rock star on tour with the suddenly famous band Damaged, Eric’s life has not been an easy journey. Now he struggles to let go of his past of physical abuse, a past that still haunts him. His anger is causing him to spiral out of control and he risks losing everything he has worked so hard for.
Only one person has ever gotten him to open up about his past: Sarah, the lead singer of Filth, the opening act on their first national tour—a fellow rocker with a confident façade that masks her own painful secrets. But their bands’ rocky past and Sarah’s tumultuous relationship with her bandmate and boyfriend Derek force her to keep Eric at a distance. As their friendship begins to grow into something more, Eric has to find a way to let go of his tortured past, or it could jeopardize his only chance for a happy future...

My Thoughts: I have had a long standing love affair with this series. I read White Trashed Beautiful (book One) back in October 2012, when the cover still looked like this......
*Click HERE see my review originally posted on my former blog*
When book two White Trash Damaged released I was in happy dance mode. Could not wait. Kids can feed themselves tonight. TIME TO READ. Opened the book and THIS happened.....
Yup, see the highlighted area... ME! There are no words to describe seeing your name in a book you have been dying to read... Ok now let's get serious.
I knew when I read WTD that Eric was going to break my heart into a million pieces, he is the wounded soul that we all can't help but fall in love with. He is kind and gentle and loyal to the ones he loves. And when he loves, it is deeply. The problem is Eric doesn't think he is good enough for the one he is in love with. The bigger problem he KNOWS the one she is with... is NOT even close. Sarah's boyfriend Derek is the a-typical asshole. He is a liar, a cheater, and emotional abuser. Oh, he has a moment or two of "sweet and tender" but they are fleeting at best. Basically I wanted to rip off his man bits and set them on fire.
Sarah and Eric are pretty much the epitome of soulmates they just need to realize that. And getting there is three-quarters the battle. I was brokenhearted and torn apart through a good part of this book. Talking out loud to the characters was a must, however, they did not listen to me. I will have to work on that skill later. All in all this is a wonderful series and I recommend it to anyone who loves a good rocker book and even those who aren't huge fans of the genre. You will fall in love with these characters I guarantee.
I do have to admit I am wildly curious what happens with the twins, these are two boys I would love to get to know better. Maybe that is just a bit of HINT HINT to the author. *wink*
