Beautiful Failure (Beautiful #1)by Mariah Cole

Title: Beautiful Failure
Author: Mariah Cole
Genre: New Adult
Publication Date:December 17, 2013 

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...

Our 4 Star Review

Emerald is surviving the best way she knows how. She says what's on her mind and makes no apologies for who she is, no bull no excuses. When her mom leaves her to fend for herself her world is turned upside down, but as time goes on people are starting to worm their way into her life . Will she let them help her and change her for the better or will she keep on as she always has on her own?

Emerald is rough around the edges it's just who she is because of how she grew up. It's been so long since she's cared about anything but being in Georgia the land of persistent people everything for her could make her change her in ways she never thought possible.

I enjoyed seeing her with her smart mouth and her insistence that Carter doesn't get to her. Watching as Emerald has her ups and downs you become invested in her and want to see her become a better person and get her life in order. The story is a bit rough around the edges but I definitely enjoyed the journey. Can't wait to see what happens next and more of Carter Black.
