Mariah Cole's Beautiful Failure Blog Tour

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...

Beautiful Failure was a 10 out of 10 for me. I loved everything about it!!

When you're young, and don't know any better, having a parent who lets you drink, do drugs, and have sex for money might seem cool; it's only when you're older that you realize what kind of parent you really had. Emerald was a girl who had a horrible way of growing up and never knew it.  With a mother who didn't really care about her, she was forced to live life the only way she knew how.  Emerald grew up with a mother who drank, smoked, and did drugs with her on a constant basis.  She also taught Emerald how to use men for sex. 

Throughout her life Emerald thought that her mother was a role model, a best friend.  It wasn't until after a tragedy, and a lot of help that she realized her mother only did the best she could, but at the same time, messed her up pretty badly.

Then there's Carter...... God I love Carter!!!  He's amazing in every way; perfect gentleman, who has that dominant bad boy way about him.

Emerald does what she's never done and slowly but surely lets Carter in.

God I love these two!!

Mariah Cole did an amazing job at getting me to connect with the characters.  Beautiful Failure leaves you wanting more.  I can't wait for Beautiful Temptation, the second book in the Beautiful series. 

Mariah Cole you did an amazing job, and created a huge fan out of me !!!
