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

As soon as this story begins, you are drawn right into the mess that is Riley’s life. She is in an abusive relationship and is afraid of what her boyfriend will do to her. She manages to escape him and runs to her brother. Needless to say, the boyfriend got what was coming to him and Riley got a restraining order. This relationship has left her scarred; she doesn’t believe she will ever be able to trust another man again.
Zander is drawn to Riley the first time he sees her. Once they finally start seeing each other, you can almost feel the sexual tension. Riley and Zander agree to wait to take their relationship to the next level and it only makes them closer. Once they do experience the full benefits of their relationship, there is no holding back.
While their relationship may be growing, others don’t like it and will do anything to try and create doubts between them. Will Zander’s best friend, Beth, get over her insecurities and let him be happy? Will Riley’s ex Parker finally leave her alone? You will need to pick up your copy to see if they get their HEA.
I truly enjoyed this book. It sucks you in right from the start and has you dying for Riley to get a HEA. Once you meet Zander, it is the same for him. They both suffer from heartache, Riley because of her ex and Zander because he has only really felt loved by his mom. There is so much other stuff going on around them that it makes you wonder how much one couple can take. One of my favorite parts in the book is when Zander shows Riley how he spends his Sundays, having a picnic at his mom’s gravesite. It was so touching and gives you some insight to the true Zander.
I can’t recommend this book enough. I have already read it a couple of times and I’m sure I will read it again. This book will make you cry, angry, laugh (love Grandma and her comments about tattoos) and yell at the characters. What are you waiting for? Go on the journey with Riley and Zander to find their HEA today!!
