More About the Author

Writing YA...because every teen deserves a hopefully ever after, I take what I've learned from my own life experiences and create characters and stories about the difficulties of walking that line between being a kid and becoming an adult. I've traveled far to get to this point in life, but I'm a happy, healthy person these days, and want to let teens know that no matter how bad life gets, it can always get better--have hope!

I live in the Berkshires with a dreamy husband, and I've successfully raised two sons who are on their own hero's journey. When I'm not writing and publishing my books, I spend my summers kayaking the lakes and ponds in New England, and my winters snow shoeing in the 6000 acres of woods behind my house...aaahhh, bliss!

Fun facts about me: I have a black belt in karate, sing opera, and can still do a sit spin with the best of them.

When I first got the book I read the first few pages, and had to stop. Not because I didn't like it, but because I knew it was one of those stories I couldn't put down until the very end, and I needed to make time to read it straight through. I was not disappointed. Savage Cinderella had me hooked from beginning to end. What a thriller and a beautiful love story! I love how PJ Sharon manages to describe scenes, not missing any details and making you feel what the characters are going through. It played in my mind like a movie. The author explains so well the grief Brinn goes through and how she manages to survive on her own and to cope with it all. Also, how Justin gets Brinn to trust him little by little and eventually enter her heart. I really liked how suspenseful scenes were while others were so romantic (it had me swooning). Some scenes were funny, too! Whatever emotions Brinn was going through, I felt them as well. I liked that the story was unpredictable, full of surprises, and had me on edge. Plus, I like happy endings! I definitely recommend this book! Whatever PJ Sharon writes is now a must read for me. I love her writing style and voice. Even though these are written for YA, I find them just as entertaining for all adults. I give it 5 big stars!

"Savage Cindrella," PJ Sharon's third book, is an absorbing and worthwhile read. Brinn, having been kidnapped from an Atlanta park at age eight and left for dead two years later, has managed to survive in the North Georgia wilderness. When she meets and is identified by a roving nature photographer, she is finally reunited with her family and society - and has to face her abductor, who has very different plans for her.

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".

This book got off to an excellent start. Initially I was just looking at it to categorise it on my Kindle (I store my books by genre), and I started reading... and couldn't stop. At least until the point where Justin left her, and she went down to see Abby and wound up in the pub. After that, it lost a little of its charm to me. The wild woman in the woods idea was great - and I can't deny that she would have had to leave at some point, but she just didn't seem feral enough to me, once she was out in the real world. She talked like a normal teenager, more-or-less acted like a normal teenager and well... everything in the plot just seemed to slot too well together. They identified her abuser. They tracked him down. They caught him. He escaped... And the final dramatic conclusion was a little too horror movie in some regards for me - the killer that just would not die. I'm not sure precisely how it could have been better, just that it could have. All up, not a bad read, just not a great one either.

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.

I snagged this looking for escape reading and that's exactly what I got. The writing was fine and the characters okay. The plot was wholeheartedly unbelievable [and rather disturbing] but if you can buy into it for a few hours, it's mostly entertaining.

*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.

I really wanted to like this book. I enjoy stories where the woman is strong and escapes or otherwise overcomes something. This story could have been good. There were parts of it that were unbelievable and I probably could have gotten over that if it weren't for all the navel-gazing on the part of the characters. It could have been a good story but the author spends so much time "telling" and so little time "showing" that I found myself skipping whole sections of the characters' internal monologues to get to the action. Every time a character started another internal monologue, I would roll my eyes because it would go on for pages and pages. I also have the same issue as some of the other reviewers in that the girl's terrible past and subsequent re-entry into society is too neat and clean. I don't know that someone who had suffered such horrible abuse and had lived in the woods since she was a child would also have memorized poetry and been perfect at everything. All in all, I couldn't finish this book. The love story wasn't that great, the plot was lukewarm and contrived, the writing needed editing, and the characters needed to look past the end of their own noses and move on with life!
