Free on KU!!
Braxton has spent six years running from his past and the memories that haunt him. The loss of the girl who owns his heart and his best friend unleashed the dark in him. Part of a world of crime and murder, Brax knows he’s reached a breaking point and something’s got to give. He has to find her.
The girl he's loved since she saved him that fateful day when they were nothing more than just kids.
The day she went away was the day he lost his heart. That was the day he became everyone's worst nightmare.
He became a monster.
He is hated, feared, and has nothing left to live for.
Isabelle has lived the last six years of her life without hope and in total isolation. Now she finds herself in the clutches of evil with no way out.
All she dreams of is to be reunited with the one boy who showed her what it means to truly be loved. Without him, she’s surrendered herself to an existence she doesn’t know how to escape.
In a moment that will change both of their lives forever, Brax comes face to face with the girl who, for six years, captured his heart. He is unable to ignore the buried desires and the hope for the future they dreamed they’d have.
Can he save the girl he once lost, or will the fight cost him more than he could ever imagine?
Wow! Once I started The Scars of you, I couldn't put it down!.
You know when you read a book, you get to scenes and your heart starts to thud? well mine did this over and over with this book, Rachael Tonks you owe me lager, lots and lots of lager lol
I'm a sucker for a childhood to adult love story but this was so much more. The Scars of you is dark, gripping and intense.
For Six years Braxton (Brax) has been searching for his childhood best friend and love of his life Izzy (Isabelle) who just disappeared, Brax never gave up looking for her and in the process also lost his childhood best friend Travis.
Brax was taken in by Carter Manello, a drug lord, a criminal, a man who saved Brax on a day he lost everything and started to work for him.
Life went on in a way Brax had never imagined but Brax's heart didn't, so many times whenever he was with a woman and having just read Izzy's pov while she is being held in captivity by an evil and savage man my head was screaming nooooo Brax don't do it she's still alive. The scars of you had me flipping pages to get to the good bits like a woman possessed I could't devour it fast enough.
I loved it, I hated it, my emotions were everywhere with so many twists and turns in the plot and so much to come with still some unanswered questions.
The fact its a huge cliffhanger had me frustrated but being a duet I expected it and I am so looking forward to the next book.
Dark, delectable, raw, addictive filled with suspense, gripping and hot scenes, it was everything I love in my reads. Told in first person dual pov's.
