The night Chance Duncan drunkenly kissed me on his couch, I vowed my revenge. I finally had something over his head, something that would bring him to his knees. It only served him right. He bullied me for years and turned me into this messed up person I am now. Though I didn’t know at the time he wasn’t that mean little boy
anymore. He was almost a man and easily stole my breath away. I just wanted to make him fall in love with me, then break his heart into a million pieces. Just the way mine was. Instead he put the pieces back together and I started to feel whole again.
Good things never last. He did what I was supposed to do. Broke my already fragile heart all over again. Betrayed and alone I fled my home town and started a new life where I wasn’t in the shadow of what I did.
Now he is back and trying to worm his way into my heart, again. Though he will never know it will always belong to him. He hurt me and I want nothing to do with him. Life has other plans. Doesn’t it always? He doesn’t know though. Doesn’t know what I’m hiding or who I’m hiding from. I never thought I would see Chance again and I’m afraid that he’ll get hurt getting mixed up in my mess. Though he is right in the middle of it, without even knowing it. I have to find a way for us to get out, before somebody dies.
My name is Norma Jean and this isn’t a fairytale.

My View: Woah, just look at that cover! It kind of takes my breath away. There’s this raw, sensual feel to it. Just wow!
The book starts off on a great note. A beautiful girl, a twisted moment and an idea of revenge, I like that! The plot is pretty innovative, to say the least. I like the way this New Adult plot develops.
The name of the book as the name of the main protagonist is very unique and fresh in itself. The characters are well developed. The story moves at a decent pace. There are various twists and turns to keep up the interest.
Overall, this book entails a different plot and a decent read.
