It's been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she's been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father's home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she's capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she's not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who's ever meant anything to her-her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder. ... Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There's major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won't make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he's left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian's bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn't thrilled with the arrangement-or his fake fiancee-but decides he'll suffer through it if it means he'll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.

A fun and light read. I enjoyed it most of the time. The witty banters are awesome, hands down. Definitely love that. Watching Ella's family interaction grows within the pages warms my heart. The only thing that didnt work out for me is that CINDER IS TOO FREAKING CHEESY I CANT HELP BUT CRINGE UNTIL MY FACE HURTS. oh and there are some parts which i think are a bit illogical (?) and annoying. A fun book, nevertheless.

“You took away the numbness. You made me remember how to feel, how to care about someone other than myself.”
