Blue Williams shines no matter the circumstance.
-Prettiest in her hometown
-Most talented cheerleader on her high school squad
-Valedictorian of the senior class
-Prom queen and runner up for Miss Teen Colorado
And the list goes on…
That’s until college, when she finds out nobody recognizes her, and if they do they couldn’t care less. Blending in is something Blue has longed for her entire life. Living in a dorm with a set of new friends is just what she needed to escape her stale life back home. For the first time, she’s seen for her talent and not her name or looks.
Cheer is her number one priority, considering a full-ride scholarship landed her at a prestigious university, and she intends to take advantage of it. A true beauty inside and out, Blue’s heart has always pumped competitive blood.
Until one night changes her forever…the beauty is gone, and all she has left are nasty, ugly memories. The man who saved her has a story of his own, with ninety percent of his body scarred.
What happens when the Beauty falls for the Beast?
Well the name fits, it would be even more fitting with Blue Monday because this book felt like one. The basic story here could have been good, but it was so far from it. The writer and I have some really fundamentally disagreements on feminism and there is the rub.
First off what ticked me off in a big way was that Blue could not wear this and that because them she showed too much off he “loooong toned legs”… This was in her own mind and happened from start to beginning. Well I belive you can wear whatever you damn well please. Then it was Tucks reaction if she had something not frumpy on, you go to cover that up Blue. Whaaaaat the..?? That makes Tuck a big ahole in my world, screaming “stay away from that guy”.
Then it was the as a woman you cant go alone at night and that was normal and ok. If that is so you need to fix the place, you do. Women has not needed a male to walk with them since the Victorian time. Sooo not OK.
The book was also difficult to follow and the sex was boring and just meh.
The feminist in me are screaming like a banshee in my head over this book, NOooooooooooo.
So I give 2 stars. I read it all, had I DNF it I give 1 star.
Blue Monday it was.
