I had the perfect school, the perfect friends—the perfect life …
At least, that’s what I thought.
But you changed all that.
You are always there … Always watching … Always waiting in the shadows. You send me flowers and messages. You stalk me, trace my every movement…
Until that one day, in a silly game of Seven Minutes in Heaven, when I finally get to feel you—have a taste of you …
It left me wanting more.
One catastrophic day, my wish is granted.
Just past my eighteenth birthday, tragedy strikes and I watch my family die before my eyes.
You are there. You rescue me. You choose my life over my older sister’s, and I hate you for that. I hate you for taking me and imprisoning me. You say it’s for my sake, but I know it’s for your own. You make me see that my life could be much worse without you in it…
You make me see true darkness.
It is in that darkness you make me desperate for your presence, your touch, your caress. You make me need you… You make it impossible for me to live without you… And then, eventually…
You make me fall in love with you.
Secrets will always wound the ones twisted within their web of lies… But the ones I’m tangled in … are deadly.
WARNING: Although this book (overall) is not a dark read, one chapter is an exception, and contains the following triggers: childhood sexual/emotional abuse with some intensity in one particular scene.
Scars is my third book by this author, it is not my favourite as it started dark and then turned sweet however I did enjoy the ending to a point. I was totally floored by the turn of events with the main characters, I did not see or figure out the surprises or the twist in the story line so well done to the author. I am though unhappy with the one unresolved secret for Lily and so for me the story is not finished. I find in the author’s notes a story will be released on Christine that will also feature an update for “J” and Lily.
I love the cover of this, it is definitely “J” to a big “T”.
The main thing I did not like with this story was the way it turned rather sweet and I did feel we got dragged down with all the teenage drama. I also felt the ending was rushed, it took us forever to get back to that room where we started this story in and I actually wanted to see Lily declare her secret to “J” and to see perhaps how they move forward, it just felt unresolved to me.
Scars has some pretty horrific flashbacks to what happens with “J” and Charlotte, my god what he and his sister go through, I can totally understand wanting revenge, it is a hard few chapters to read.
Scars is an enjoyable story, it was just different to what I expected from the author after reading Deviant and Redemption which I absolutely loved – definitely not as dark and dirty.
