More About the Author
In addition to authoring romantic and hopeful stories for young adults, PJ Sharon owns ABSolute Fitness and Therapeutic Bodywork, a private practice massage therapy and personal training business in East Granby, CT. With over twenty-five years in the health and fitness industry, Ms. Sharon offers a multidisciplinary approach to wellness. Overcome Your Sedentary Lifestyle
(A Practical Guide to Improving Health, Fitness, and Well-being for Desk Dwellers and Couch Potatoes), her debut non-fiction title, is a holistic living, self-help book, sure to motivate readers toward a more balanced and active lifestyle.
As a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA), Massage Therapist (LMT), Certified Personal Fitness Trainer (CPFT), and Yoga Instructor, Ms. Sharon brings a wealth of knowledge to her clients and workshops. A graduate of Springfield Technical Community College and the Connecticut Center for Massage Therapy, Ms. Sharon also holds certifications as a trainer through the NFPT and teaches therapeutic yoga. A Black Belt in the art of Shaolin Kempo Karate, and former figure skating and power skating instructor, Ms. Sharon's passion for holistic health and healing comes through in her writing--whether she is penning romantic and hopeful stories for teens, or sharing her wisdom and experience with clients and workshop attendees.
When she's not writing, or spreading the love through her practice, she can be found kayaking in the Berkshire Hills of Massachusetts, and renovating an old farmhouse with the love of her life.

In Brinn, Sharon blends elements of "Nell" and "A Child Called `It'" with her own gentle and sympathetic voice. We feel Brinn's fear as she confronts the possibilities of a relationship without abuse, and her joy at overcoming the mental demons that have kept her in hiding for years. Sharon's knowledge of survival skills, abuse victims and hand-to-hand combat are all spot-on. We even get a happy ending.
Clear your calendar. Buy. Read. Be amazed and inspired by "Savage Cinderella".
On the plus side - very good editting in terms of grammar and spelling mistakes (I cannot recall finding anything aside from a misplaced comma or two) although the formatting was off sometimes when they engaged in conversation, indenting it all. Odd that.
*Spoiler* After being kidnapped and left to die in the Georgia woods at a very young age, she miraculously survives only to live an isolated existence alone for ten years or so. She befriends a bear--yes, a bear--whom she calls "kitty". All this before she's even eighteen. She's swept off her feet and rescued by a young man who becomes her love interest. Then, at the end of the story, there are like, three different twists when you think her former jailer is dead. ...but he's not. Of course. I mean, he's been mauled by a bear, stabbed, and shot (or strangled? or both?), but still not dead. Enough already. *End Spoiler!*
What i didn't realize was that this author writes primarily young adult romance. No wonder I was SO over the relationship between this damaged young woman and her rescuer by the end of the book. Had I realized this from the start, I probably would have passed this title over. It was clear in the author biography at the end of the actual book but on Amazon, the author biography lists her other books without mentioning her numerous awards for romantic fiction. The synopsis makes it seem like the romance might be a small part of the story but make no mistake, this is all about a damaged girl conquering her fear and relentlessly talking about a boy in the process.
I gave it three stars because I've read a lot better but I've also put down a lot worse.
