Rating: 5/5 Stars!

Happy Monday all! Today is my stop on the blog tour for DAMAGED GOODS (Blank Slate #2) by Jennifer Bardsley. I had the pleasure of reviewing an early copy of Genesis Girl (Blank Slate #1) before it came out, and it blew me away. I can honestly say that DAMAGED GOODS some how surpassed the awesomeness of Genesis Girl!

The high attention and fast-paced storyline of DAMAGED GOODS had me rushing to flip the page through every scene. This book gets more into detail about Blanca’s life as an ex-Vestal. Her struggles and feelings of mistrust are palpable throughout the entire novel. I felt for Blanca. It was like I was experiencing every emotion she went through. At times I was very frustrated because I know I would have reacted completely differently than Blanc did, but that’s the beauty of this book. It kept me thinking.  As the ending unfolded I couldn’t believe what was happening. I had guessed it ALL WRONG! The The ending is a bit cliffhanger-ish but so perfect. I am already anxiously awaiting book #3 in the series. I need it RIGHT NOW.

Below you’ll find the book synopsis, author info, as well as a pretty awesome giveaway!

Blanca has everything she ever wanted, a hot boyfriend named Seth and the loving support of her foster father, Cal. She’s finally escaped the abusive control of her birth father, Barbelo Nemo, and her tortured childhood at Tabula Rasa School.

But the scars of Blanca’s Vestal upbringing run deep, especially when the FBI start asking questions. Blanca feels abandoned by Seth who is hunting for Lilith, Blanca’s only blood relative. The Defectos, a support group of Vestal-Rejects, offer Blanca comfort instead.

While the Vestal order crumbles, Chinese rivals called the Guardians rise to power and wrest control of important Tabula Rasa contacts. Now Blanca’s life is in peril once more, and this time, Blanca struggles to recognize friend from foe.
