In 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.
I've read the first book in the series, White Trash Beautiful and really enjoyed it. I didn't read the second book though, and I don't really know why. I definitely want too! Because I hadn't read book two, I definitely was a little lost. I thought it would be ok since book three is about different characters then book one and two, but I was wrong. It seems that Eric and Sarah had a huge part in the second book. It was easy to overcome that, but at the same time I felt like I lost out on getting to know these two characters and watching their friendship grow into something really special.
Sarah and Eric understand each other in ways no one else does. They can be honest in ways that they can't be with anyone else. I loved their connection. I thought it was so sweet and honest. Their connection was the only thing I really enjoyed about the story though.
For me, the rest of the story was slow and boring. Nothing exciting was happening and the only parts I did enjoy was when Eric and Sarah were talking. Sometimes I felt that they were playing games with each other, which I didn't like. They were so honest about everything else, I don't understand why they couldn't just be honest with their feelings. It definitely got frustrating at times.
While I still want to read the second book, this is a series that I am glad is over. I don't think I would have continue with it if there were going to be more books.
