"Scarred is so different from any new adult romance that I've read before ... " - Danielle, Life With Two Boys

From the Back Cover

Sometimes, love comes with a price... 

The past is always gonna try and bring you down, but you gotta fight. Fight hard for what you love. Fight to win is what twenty-two-year-old Dominick Anderson believes, but his life is a struggle. Growing up with an abusive father has made Dominick slow to love and trust, and he relies on his brother Kevin to keep him on a straight path. 

Dominick fights his demons every day, every night. Now a sophomore at the University of Washington and working a steady job at a mechanic's shop, Dominick wants to create a better life and find the future his father never wanted him to have. 

Dominick suppresses his identity and feelings until he meets Denise Ramsey. Smart, stunningly gorgeous, and sharing his love for motorcycles, Denise is everything Dominick longs for in a girl but knows he can never have. When a past love threatens her life and brings out Dominick's suppressed dark side, he must decide if she's worth the risk.

(From my blog)

I got an Arc in exchange of an honest review so here it is !

This is the first book Marie Long published and I have to say this is a really good first novel. It's well written with moving and realistic characters. I think this is the kind of romance that is both deep and tender. I loved Dominick and I really enjoyed reading from his POV. He and Denise were really endearing and well, perfect for each other !

The author promised a great book boyfriend and here we have it ! Dominick was not just scarred, broken and afraid. No, he was also funny, smart, so thoughtful and caring. The way he thought and acted were trueful. You can look for a guy like this but I'm pretty sure he is already taken or hiding somewhere. I felt like he was some rare treasure you would only find in an old shop where you wouldn't have looked. But if you're like Denise, you'll want to keep him close. She realized quickly enough he was everything she always hoped for. She seemed so nice and fun, cute and reliable. You will want her as your best friend !

Again, the two of them were meant to be together. Even darkness couldn't keep them apart or make one of them run away. Dominick' secrets were terrible and it made my heart hurt. So I'm beyond happy he finally got what he deserved so much. Now I can picture him being happy for the rest of his life. His demons are fading away like snow under the warm and shining sun.

The second characters were great too, I loved Kevin and I can't wait to read more about him. Also, there were intense moments that made the read lively. And what about the hotness of this true love? Denise and Dominick were so touching. I often smile and like me, I'm sure you will feel something deep inside.

I'm glad that's over. This book was kind of BORING. It took far too long to reveal all of the implied demons the characters were struggling with. The story was so slow getting around to the romance, I pretty much lost interest in the story altogether. Well I did read it to the end, but sadly, it continued to disappoint. There was waaaaay too much time spent on details completely irrelevant and no where near the depth or details of the areas that would have made the book interesting.

I like the ideas behind this book and I like the point of overcoming past obstacles to get to the good/better things in life. I have read others review and agree that some of the tone of this book can be a little off putting. However from a females perspective most guys are misogynistic. And men tend to view virginal women as a golden ticket to some idea of perfection. I did find Dom's character a bit stalker-ish but he himself says he was this way but he also had reason behind his action that turned out to be quite noble. My disappointment comes from how the characters are described or lack thereof. I found myself struggling to figure out what they would look like or true character development. Some of the ideas are there but left me wondering if the reaction or actions were justified. for instance nobody says anything about Dom's altercation at the frat house like it happens everyday. No shock or upset or even anger just blatant acceptance.
Over all I did like the story and I was rooting for them to get together but I was still left with wanting more.

I love discovering new authors... And when they offer a unique story that hasn't been done over and over again? That's even better!

Scarred is so different from any new adult romance that I've read before. Dominick wasn't a manwhore frat boy, Denise wasn't a slutty heroine with a tragic past, there were no jealous ex-girlfriends, or stupid misunderstandings... Basically this was a new adult romance without all the overdone cliche's. But what really makes this one of a kind was the fact that it was told entirely from the heroes POV.

Dominick has a tragic past, and although he still has nightmares and flashbacks, he doesn't let it define him. He doesn't want a bunch of meaningless one night stands or drunken hookups, he wants something real... And as soon as he meets Denise he knows that she's his something real.

Unfortunately for Dominick, Denise's ex comes back into the picture and puts his relationship with her on hold. At first I was mad that Denise went back to her ex so quickly without even giving Dom a chance but at the same time that's probably what most people would do if their first love showed back up in their life.

Without giving too much of the story away, I'll just say that something went down with Denise and her ex, William, and Dom was there to save the day. I loved watching their friendship and eventual relationship build from there. While they each had their own demons to work through at that point, you could feel their love for each other helping them heal.

Overall this was a great read and I can't wait to check out Scratched, the next book in the series, when it comes out.

One of the best things about being a blogger, is the opportunity to discover so many new and awesome authors. I'm so glad I got the chance to discover Marie Long.

Dominick has a dark and tragic past that he doesn't let define him. Although he still has flashbacks and nightmares, he still doesn't use it as an excuse to be a douche. There are no one and done incidents in his life, as he is on the hunt for a relationship that is meaningful. As soon as Denise comes in his life, he knows she's it. However, Denise has some lingering feelings for her ex, so she tries one more time to make it work. Can Dom show her that they belong together?

Scarred is a completely different new adult story. It was very unique which made it awesome. First of all, the story was told from Dom's POV which frankly, I loved. Plus, the fact that he wasn't a man whore, and Denise wasn't a whiny, clingy female was refreshing to me. Marie Long's character development was great, and all of them had great depth to them. I could feel the real, adult love through my kindle. All in all, this was a great book and can't wait to read the next one.
