As promised this novella gives us a more In depth look at Jewel/Cara’s past and how she came to be a regular at the laundromat. Her’s is sad yet uplifting tale and one this reader highly recommends. The author does an amazing job in giving the reader a glimpse into the struggles and triumphs of Cara's life. This is another wonderful look into one of the main characters in the upcoming full length final installment called Life. Next up is “Baby” which is Hap and Lena’s story.
Rating: 5 stars out of 5
This is a very interesting concept. The author is releasing a series of stand alone novellas leading to a full length novel. I am intrigued to see how this will play out. I read the first book Millionaire, and really liked Cash and Jewel as characters. This story is Jewel’s story giving more background into her character than we received in Millionare. The plot of this story is about a young girl and how she claws out of a horrible life and how she survives an overdose and gets her addiction under control. This story was raw and powerful. There really is no chemistry in this story that reads almost like a fictional autobiography. Jewel does go down the rabbit hole with the jock from high school, but I think that the chemistry in one sided. I am going to rate the chemistry a 5 however, because I don’t want to detract from a 5 star rating for a story that moved me so much. The pacing is fast and my heart was racing throughout the story. In 55 short pages the author was able to develop this character to the point that I felt that I knew her personally. Great second part to The Laundromat Chronicles.

"My life is not a fairy tale. It’s ****ing dark and dirty.”- Jewel
Jewels is an ex-druggie who's on the road to recovery. After waking up in a hospital, that's when Jewels gets her second chance at life, but it's not going to be easy.
" I’m damaged goods.”- Jewel
Trying to navigate through a sober life, Cash comes crashing in. But Jewels feels as tho she's damaged goods and no one will ever want her, or that she deserves any happiness.
Cash will change that all!
Jewels character is one of self loathing, non-believing and closed off. I'm glad towards the end she rectified herself. Because that got annoying. It's like as if every character that came into contact with Jewels, had to tell her what she didn't believe. And that probably makes me mean, but it's my truth. I'm truly excited to see where they end up in 'Life' And once again, I think this novella series is a brilliant concept! With them being Novellas, there is enough information, drama and so on to keep you concentrated on the story.
This is the second book in the series. If you read book one you were introduced to Jewel. This is her story and what a story it is. Life has dealt her a rough hand from the start. First her father, landing up in Prison and then her mother turning to drugs. Just when Jewel thinks she can escape this awful life, she is dealt another blow. Her life spirals out of control until she wakes up in a hospital. Could this be the chance she needs to take back control of her life? Will she always feel guilty and dirty for the past life? On her new journey can she take a chance on the beautiful man named Cash? Or will he let her down like everyone else. This story is gripping. Very fast paced and will keep you tapping the pages. Looking forward to the conclusion of Cash and Jewels sotry.

Jewel was a young girl with a difficult life, so when she is finally getting ready to move, fate had another plan for her. A plan that would change her life forever.
Jewel has been clean and ready to move forward, however once again fate has another plan for her and his name is Cash Green.
This second installment has shine a light on Jewel's past and present we are seeing how Cara became Jewel, and how Jewel is trying to get Cara back. This short story was so powerful and emotional you will feel her pain. I can't wait see how Cash and Cara's story will end.
You don't want to miss this crazy good story.
