Review

“A good read, especially for those of you who want a twist on your fairy tales from childhood.”
—Writings of a Wicked Book Addict on Candy Houses

“A twisted take on guardian angels…”
—HorrorView on Tarnished Knight

“Shiloh’s books are sinfully good, wickedly sexy, and wildly imaginative!”
New York Times bestselling author Larissa Ione

Book Description

Marc needs a date for a last-minute charity event, and he needs it fast. The last woman on earth he expects to see in his sister Shera’s dating service office is old friend Chaili. Nothing pleases him more when Shera sets them up. That simple date quickly evolves into much more as they both discover the other fills a deep, secret need they’ve shared with no one else.
Though Chaili insists one night is all she wants, Marc isn’t walking away now. Not until he discovers what put the shadows in her eyes. And the scars on her soul.

So I'll bet when you saw the title of this book you thought this would be yet another story about a bad boy rock star with an emotionally scarred childhood. Nope. Wrong. Marc had a great childhood and has achieved all of his dreams of making a success with his music. And yet, he can't seem to make a relationship work.

Enter Chaili - best friend to Marc's sister as well as being Marc's friend for over 20 years. Twenty years that she's spent being secretly in love with Marc and hoping he would notice her. When it became apparent to her that he never would notice her in "that way" she jumped into an ill-fated marriage with a guy she didn't truly love. The husband heartlessly divorces her and 3 years later, she and Marc find each other.

I really don't like spoilers in reviews so I don't want to give away where the beautiful scars come in to the story but I will say that it was a refreshing change to see this subject handled so beautifully. And that tatoo was all kinds of awesome.

I enjoyed the story, short as it was, but didn't feel like it ever really went anywhere. I'll stop short of saying it was dull - because it wasn't - but it wasn't an exciting read, either. I felt their connection, so that was good. The sex scenes were okay (even if I'm kind of over the whole BDSM thing these days) so that was good. It's just that there were things that were brought up for no apparent reason. For example, Marc's color blindness. I thought that issue was going to come into play somewhere later in the book but it didn't - so I don't get why we were even told the details of it in the first place. Or that they go to a sex club and I think things might perk up but they spend all their time in a private room doing nothing too exciting.

I still remember this book and I read it years ago. It is truly an inspiring and beautiful read, yet tackles a very real and confronting reality for many women. The cover doesn't do it justice as while it's a steamy read, it's not about the chemistry it's about the journey both main characters have gone through to end up where they are now. I thoroughly enjoy it and think everyone women should read it. I am sorry I'm a little obtuse but I don't want to give away any of the plot or provide an spoilers

Another wonderfully emotional story by Shiloh Walker. Every page of this book jumped out at me. Everything from Chaili's crush on her best friends big brother too the terrible reason her marriage didn't work out.

Marc is a man who doesn't trust easy. He has been hurt one too many times by people he thought he could trust. But when his little sisters best friend (who just happens to be one of his close friends too) steps back into his life he will have to learn quickly that trust is giving freely, but if you mess it up once you will have a heck of a time getting it back. Only this time Marc is the one having to earn it back.

Chaili has been through hell the last few years, but she is determined to get back on her feet. But it is proving to be a bit of a challenge. When an opportunity comes up to spend the evening with Marc, Chaili is willing to do just about anything to get close to the only man she has ever truly loved.

Beautiful Scars is a great story of trust, love and learning to overcome your fears. If you are looking for a good read that will leave you wishing there was more. You need to pick up a copy of Beautiful Scars and learn what true love really is.

I've never been a regular reader of Shiloh Walker but I'm going to change that, her books are well written and carry a pointed and challenging storyline. I've read a lot of erotic books and are all just that! No storyline to speak of, this book is not that!

Chaili Bennett and Marc Archer grew up together, she was the best friend of his sister and knew him when he had a school band, he's in the big time now and she doesn't see him often but she's always cared about him. But Chaili has more to do than moon over Marc, she has a living to earn and bills to pay. However when Mark needs a date for a party, Chaili volunteers to go - through his sister who has an escort service (not that kind!).

Chaili has had terrible challenges after her divorce and illness she has to start over and she is managing but it has been difficult. Mark missed all of that because he doesn't come home often but when he takes Chaili on his date, he starts to remember what she meant to him.

There are misunderstandings and arguments, a disgusting ex-husband but the story is solid and you will like it. Its very different!

Beautiful Scars" by Shiloh Walker is a beautiful contemporary romance novel that explores self image and the resiliency of the human spirit. Chaili Bennett leaps at the chance to not only do her friend Shera a favor but also to live out a long-held fantasy and attend a party as musician Marc Archer's date. The brooding man has never really responded to Chaili's overtures for a more profound relationship and they seem to orbit at cross-purposes in their lives but their connection finally deepens to a more sensual and emotional level. The secrets and hurts that have shaped the persons that they have become have left plenty of scars but it may make them find a way to celebrate the people they have evolved into and finally give each other the gift of honesty.

This wonderfully evocative story manages to meld an emotional and very sensitive subject with a delightfully sensual exploration between lovers. There are several controversial subjects tangentially approached, including the right and wrong way to approach BDSM as well as the threat of sexual blackmail but the overall intricate dance between long-time friends who are testing the possibility of becoming lovers is presented with the author's usual flair for a lushly memorable tale. Marc is a sometimes obtuse and intense artist who fumbles occasionally but is definitely a charismatic person with deep feelings and I enjoyed reading his journey. Another delicious story from a talented storyteller.
