***PDL’s rating: 4.5 Scarred Hearts (Really Liked)***

Written in the Scars is a second chance romance with issues that are heartbreakingly real. The characters were not perfect, which made me love them more and hurt for them the way I would have hurt for myself.

It was so easy to be looking in from the outside. There were so many times I wanted to scream at the top of my lungs for them to communicate and that their relationship is ‘fucked,’ due to the lack of communication and giving the other a chance to explain their reasoning behind their action. Then I sit back and laugh at myself through my frustration because in reality that shit is real. Isn’t that most relationships? Hell, I admit my marriage is like that ‘til this day and our issues are just everyday-normal-shit. Where one is pissed the fuck off or hurt because of the other’s action and in reaction we assume the worse of things not truly understanding the other person’s hurt and pain as well.

I really liked the way the author’s primary focus is on Elin and Ty, yet she incorporated the secondary characters into it so smoothly they all become a whole. I know that sounds like most books we read but there’s something in this story about it that speaks out to me but I cannot pinpoint the specifics of it that made me feel it more so than other books I have read. The one thing that always did stick out for me is the loyalty. This has always been the one thing that drives my emotions to no ends and this book has held me captive with just that alone.

What was most unexpected about this story was the almost ending of it. The last 20-25% of this book had a vice-like grip on my heart like no other. I literally sat up in bed and wasn’t sure if I could handle what may or may not come and I just knew there was no way around it. Let’s just say I am not a crier at all. Most books that everyone raves about that made them cry usually does not even tug at my tear ducts, but this… Written in the Scars had tears running down my face and the funny thing was it’s because of my fear of what may come because I could not foresee anything good coming out of it. I was cursing the author in my head (this is a good thing, I promise) while trying to figure out how she can spin it without killing me in the process. I guess since I am sitting here writing this review that I managed to survive but let me tell you something. I definitely DID NOT walk out of it without scars.

I will leave you with…

Scars stick around to prove you showed up for life. That you lived. That you fought. That you loved.
