Blog Tour/Review - Scarred by Love by C.A. Harms (#giveaway $5 GC)

Reviewed by Carol

Book: Scarred by Love
Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Romance


Riley thought she was in love. She thought she found the perfect guy until his aggressive behavior became too much to handle and she ran.

Becoming withdrew from the world and hiding from the chance of loving again. Having four older brothers and a determined best friend she had no choice but to stand strong.

Over time Riley was able to open up once again. She had no idea that the one person she needed was right under her nose.

She was guarded and hesitant when it came to bad boys...after all it was a bad boy that shattered her once before.

Zander wanted the girl from the party. He wanted to be near her even though she continued to push him away. He couldn’t let go of the gorgeous girl with those stormy eyes.

They both had secrets they kept hidden from one another. They found it easier to talk to others than to confide in each other. Riley begins to realize Zander isn't who she thought he was and falling for the sexy voiced Lead Singer/Guitar player may be just what she needs.

They struggle through hard times and learn to trust again. But will the love that grows be enough to hold them together or will the heartache they suffer drive a wedge between them forever.

They could be toxic to one another or they could heal the wounds that run deep within their souls.

A Review by Carol

Book – Scarred by Love
Author – C.A. Harms
Publication Date – December 30, 2013
Type – Stand Alone
Genre – Romance, New Adult
Rating – 3 1/2 out of 5 Stars

Book provided by Author (Blog Tour) in exchange for an honest review.

This book touches a very sensitive subject with women today everywhere….the nightmare of domestic violence. Whether it is while men have been drinking or just in everyday situations – it was very explainable why Riley was as hesitant as she was. It was endearing how her brothers and her parents stepped up to the plate for her and gave her the support she needed to recover.

Other than her past trauma – Riley sets out and wants to live again. She is tired of hiding and is set to get back in the swing of things and this is where she meets Zander. Zander takes one look at Riley and he is smitten, so being the suave college student he is….he fails miserably. Riley shoots him down by laughing at something she thinks is a pick up line but it was only Zander being truthful to her. She later sees Zander with someone else, gets the wrong idea and writes him off for good. It was for the best she continues to tell herself – because bad boys will hurt you every time.

Riley starts dating a preppy guy who is all boring and blah…one who Riley doesn’t feel the stirrings like she did while talking to Zander.

She decides to give Zander a chance and the two of them are immediately progressing quickly with a relationship. Zander knows he met his “ONE” but something stands in the way of these two – something that is constantly around the corner and popping up at the most inopportune times. What is more important to Zander? What will he choose? And can these two ever find the HEA?

The book was good and I enjoyed it mostly… mostly, I mean there were times that Riley got on my last nerve with her temper tantrums and Zander irritated me with his pussy ass. I get that he felt Riley was his future, but if he stood up for what he wanted and opened his eyes on what the hell was going on around him – he would have seen the signs and stopped the drama.
