Ex Convict by Ashley Beal

4 Stars for me on this one!

Hope Manson is a mean popular girl in high school when she concocts the ultimate plan for humiliation on someone who is spreading rumors about her one night at a party…unfortunately even the best laid plans have a way of not working out. Hope is convicted of manslaughter and serves 6 years in prison wallowing in her own guilt and promising to become a better person for Jenny. Vowing never to fall in love and feeling that she does not deserve to she is released from prison after serving her time. Being abandon by her family while locked up she has nothing and nowhere to go besides a local woman's home until she can get on her feet.

Wes is a man whore. Having watched his father nearly destroyed by his own mother as a child he swears he will never succumb to love. He refuses to lose control or give his heart to another. Successful in business with his father, completely mouth watering, and a complete jackass.

A chance meeting at a party brings Hope and Wes together and the chemistry is instantaneous. Both in denial of what they have found in one another combined with several outside forces make for an emotional rollercoaster ride for them both internally and externally.

I really loved this story…it had pain, humiliation, guilt, love, danger, and suspense combined with great characters. The only thing I can honestly say would have made this a 5 star for me would have been a little more detail and background story in a few instances. I don't want to give away anything because this truly is a great read that I would recommend to anyone 18+. The author has done a fantastic job capturing the internal turmoil of both Wes with his pain and difficulty to trust and Hope's guilt over her past. This was the first book I had read by this author and will absolutely be one-clicking some others!
