They say what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and that’s great . . . as long as you don’t die.
Sixteen-year-old Haley Tremaine had it all: top-notch school, fantastic family, and a bright future, but all of that changed when an accident tore her family apart. Now, an alcoholic father, a bitter younger sister, and a cold headstone bearing her mother’s name are all she has left.

Chris Charming has it all: a powerful CEO for a father, a prestigious school, and a fortune at his fingertips, but none of that matters when he lands a reputation as a troublemaker. 

Struggling to follow in his father’s footsteps, he reaches out to the one person he believes truly sees him, the one person he wants: Haley.

Little do they know someone’s determined to bring the two together, even if it means murder.


Oh holy edge of my seat reading!!! Wow just wow! I don't think I have read anything this gripping! I gnawed my nails to oblivion and pulled at my hair! Even shooed away my family and got completely lost in Haley's world! From the very beginning I knew this was going to be one heck of a wild ride. I was totally not wrong.

Haley's life just sucks, her mom is gone and no one knows why but her. Her drunk dad is a horses ass and frankly I wanted to reach in the book and smack the hello kitty out of that man... Her friends were not much of a comfort and everyone knew her story. No use hiding what everyone knew. 

She gets singled out by his hottness Chris, which throws her for a loop but she stands her ground for a little while. Haley has a good gut but life has thrown her some pretty crappy circumstances so I didn't blame her when she couldn't take the pressure anymore. 

There's not much to say without spoiling this tragic tale so I am just going to say that it's a beautifully twisted tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last word. It was moving, it was disturbing and it was epic.  Cinderella with an awful twist comes to mind. But it is definitely a must read!

A Grimm Cinderella story indeed! I recommend it to every reader who enjoys fairytales and Grimm stories for sure!

Krystal Wade is happily married to the love of her life (don’t gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. They live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day she wakes up to find herself stuck in traffic trying to get there.
The horrid commute gives Krystal plenty of time to zone out and think about her characters in full, brilliant details (she’s a safe driver; don’t worry). Stories give her a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to her on the fifty mile trek into town (she picks up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don’t believe us).

Krystal has been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that’s just one small aspect of her oh-so-large life. When she’s not working, commuting, or chasing after her three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find Krystal outside talking to her chickens like they’re the cutest things in the world (they are), or training her amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can’t that be 100% of the time?).
