in Reader Questions

Here’s a “help me find this book” question from Ana (and another that sounds right up our angsty-alley!)

Ana asks:

I’m sure you can help me! I read a synopsis not too long ago about a couple of orphans, who go through lots of things together and fall in love, once they are out of the system, she is forgotten (or feels that way) and he becomes famous over the years. Then they find each other again, she is pissed and he wants her back! Lots of drama and angst, I thought it was right up our alley, yet I can’t remember the name of the book! :(  Help! (one clue- it’s not Callum & Harper)

I’ve read this synopsis, before, too!! Which one is it? Anyone?

Reader Suggestions so far:

  • Leo by Mia Sheridan <— (sidenote from Maryse: Oh right!! This one has been recommended a  few times to me over the last few days! That’s where I remember it!)
  • From Rags by Suzanne Wright (a few Facebook readers suggested this one)

From Rags. He’s a famous race car driver. She becomes discovered as a model. Loved it. Love that author- Suzanne Wright.

Katie March 22, 2013 at 1:34 PM

Definitly From Rags. He becomes a race car driver and then she becomes a model.

I agree…. it definitely sounds like Jaxxon and Connor from the book From Rags by Suzanne Wright. It was sooo goood!!

Emily March 22, 2013 at 1:41 PM

Gotta say…I read Leo, loved it.

Candice March 22, 2013 at 2:44 PM

I immediately thought From Rags.

Christine March 22, 2013 at 2:45 PM

From Rags – One of my all time favorite – read over and over again books!!!

I have LEO on my TBR list, cant wait to read it. Does anyone remember part of an excerpt/teaser/synopsis ANYTHING regarding a young girl that was an orphan but ends up with a ” mysterious benefactor” who pays for her college and her best friends accomodations, provides her with a driver as well. I only remember these two bits of information but it’s driving me crazy.

Michelle March 22, 2013 at 4:43 PM

Emely, it sounds like The Lonely, great book

Shelly North March 22, 2013 at 4:45 PM

Emely thats The Lonley. Really good.

“A young girl that was an orphan but ends up with a ” mysterious benefactor” who pays for her college and her best friends accomodations, provides her with a driver”
This sounds like The Lonely by Tara Brown. It was V V V good!!

emely March 22, 2013 at 5:39 PM

Thanks Melissa!!! I’m gonna get it now :-)

Maryse March 22, 2013 at 8:04 PM

Yep I read the Lonely. Gets pretty crazy!

Roshni March 23, 2013 at 6:53 PM

Not quite the answer but Fallen too Far…..Blaire is an orphan

gracie March 24, 2013 at 8:52 PM

Just finished “leo” the other day and really enjoyed it.

Ana March 28, 2013 at 1:16 PM

Thank you Maryse and all of my fellow book addicts for helping me find this book! I read the suggestions and it is From Rags! Yay! You guys rock, it’s next on my TBR after I finish Waiting For You! Thank you again and Happy Easter! :)

From Fallen Too Far, Blaire isn’t an orphan. Her mom only recently died in the beginning of the story and her dad is who she is supposed to be going to stay with when she meets Rush.
