Scars by Jaimie Roberts

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.

4 out of 5 Stars

I knew I was going to give Scars 4 to 5 stars as soon as I finished the prologue. I couldn't drop the book. This is a stalker/romance story. Although it wasn't as dark as I was expecting it to be, I loved it!

Lily is a very mature 17 year old. She doesn't brag or whine. Even though her parents have high paying jobs, Lily is just a humble girl. She also has a secret stalker.

This stalker is pretty romantic. Everyday he leaves her a flower at the front door, and he makes sure she gets home safely.

Lily mentions it to her best friend, but she doesn't notify her family about someone following her. There's just something about the man that pulls her. His voice, his body, his actions.

There are some steamy and erotic moments, but the sex scenes aren't everywhere. The romance between the characters moves at a good pace.

I really enjoyed this book. There's romance, mystery, and some suspense. It also has some good twists that surprised me. I can't wait to read more by Jaimie Roberts.
