Book Description

When the Paradise Falls bridge fell, Jennifer Katzenberg lost her husband and her happiness. The only thing she has left is her job as a high school teacher, but even that isn't safe. Eliot, her abusive brother-in-law, stalks her every waking moment waiting to pounce.

But then she meets him. Jacob, the new math teacher. He's quick witted, sensitive, and smart. But he's also built like an MMA fighter, drives a car worth ten times his salary, and is covered in scars. Something doesn't add up.

Jacob Kane skipped town when the bridge collapse claimed his family too. Everyone said it was an accident, but he isn't so sure.

Now he's back in Paradise Falls. Not to teach math, but to get revenge. Everything was going according to plan. At least until he saw her. Jennifer.

Jacob never thought he would see Jennifer again, but he discovers someone trying kidnap her--Elliot. One of the men he came here to kill. Falling in love was never part of the plan, but there's a new plan now: Fix it. Save her.

Scar Tissue is the first part of a serial romance, unfolding over multiple volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slow burn into an action packed thrill ride August 6, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was provided with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Scar Tissue is the first part of a new romantic suspense serial by new author Abigail Graham, and she's already showing a lot of promise.

Everyone in the small, depressed Pennsylvania town of Paradise Falls has been touched by the collapse of the bridge outside of town, four years ago. The heroine of the book, Jennifer Katzenberg, lost her husband Franklin in the collapse and ever after has been living in total despair, putting up a false face at her job as a high school English teacher while living in squalor at home and punishing herself every way she can.

As the story goes on and we get into Jennifer's head it becomes clear how messed up she is, and that's even before Elliot enters the equation. Her brother in law is the kind of villain you love to hate, a possessive, arrogant scion of a powerful political family who's been fixated on Jennifer even before she married his brother.

I don't want to spoil the twist, but the bad blood between them runs deep.

Enter Jacob Kane, the man that comes into the world and throws everything upside down. Like Jennifer, he lost everything in the tragedy, but then disappeared for years and has come back to town to take a job at the same high school where Jennifer works, but something about him is off. Several somethings, actually. He drives an Aston Martin, he's covered in scars and fights as easy as he breathes. After he saves Jennifer twice, first from Elliot and then from a belligerent student, she's immediately smitten, but Jennifer has a history with men that "save" her and her own brutal past to overcome, and Jacob has psychological scars of his own.

This first installment is a slow burn that escalates into a rapid, shocking conclusion. If the author can deliver on the promise of this book in future installments, she'll be one to watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Action packed romance August 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If the rest of this series is this good, Abigail Graham might be one of my new favorite authors.

I was sucked into the world as soon as I started reading. The author really knows how to build a scene, and the action gets started early. Jennifer is a really tragic but interesting and complex character. The hero comes off as a little flat, but he gets away with it and shows hints at hidden depths to be revealed in future books. I can't stand Elliot, the main antagonist, and I mean that in the best possible way- he's a real love to hate kind of character.

The plot of this book is surprisingly twisty, and there's a real shocker at the ending that ties back to the beginning and starts tying all the threads together. Scar Tissue is a little slow in places, but there's hints of all sorts of excitement to come. I'll be watching for more of this story and more by this author.

Disclaimer: I was provided with a free advanced copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I wanted to get a copy to support this new author, too, though

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! August 5, 2014
By Nell
Format:Kindle Edition
I wasn't sure what I was getting into when I started reading this, but the story starts right on the first page and gets more intense from there. The heroine is a teacher who lost her husband in a disaster and can't move on and leave the little town where she grew up, even though her husband's psychotic brother is constantly harassing her.

She quickly meets Jacob, a native of the town who disappeared after he lost his family and has reappeared to teach at the Jennifer's school, except he's obviously not a regular teacher. The two of them bounce back and forth about approaching each other until a home invasion and another tragedy bring their worlds crashing together.

The only bad thing about this book is that it ends. I hope the rest comes out soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read! August 6, 2014
By Ruby F
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Talk about rollercoaster! This is a plot that twists and deepends over and over, a story packed with action and revelation, but above all a romance where you're just willing the two main characters to overcome their barriers and find a happy ending. Scar Tissue kept me guessing and it kept me really caring, and you can't ask for much more than that. A new author for my must-read list!

2.0 out of 5 stars Cliffhanger!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! September 7, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wouldn't have started reading this book if I had known it was a cliffhanger. The story line was ok was so unbelievable that that many tragedies could happen to the H & h. It was almost funny waiting to see what the writer could come up next to throw into the story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hot romance serial from a new author August 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I was given a copy of this book for a fair review.

I have to say, I'm impressed. I'd never heard of Abigail Graham before I was given a copy of Scar Tissue. From the title I was expecting something a little more grisly, and while this is a romance with a lot of dark themes it's not a dark romance. Fans of the billionaire alpha male hero type will love Jacob, and I found myself really getting into Jennifer's head. For a woman with a lot of problems, she comes off as wounded but not really weak, which is a real balancing act. I figured out the twist a while before the big reveal came, but it was still shocking and really made me feel for her.

There's a lot going on here. This is a very dense book with a lot of subtle details and things going on in the background that all start to come together in a gripping conclusion that sets up a story of action, adventure, love and healing. Two broken people coming together carries a real sense of hope, and while the characters still have a lot ahead of them, it's clear they belong together and will face these challenges together.

The only thing really wrong with this book is that it doesn't go on and on and come to a full conclusion. We'll have to wait for the next book.
