Review for Ramblings From This Chick.

Scarred by Love is the first book that I have read by C.A. Harms, and it is also the first book in her Scarred by Love series. I was really drawn to this one by the blurb and the cover, and couldn't wait to read Riley and Zander's story. I did have some things about this story that didn't work for me, but yet I also had a lot that I really liked as well. I am pretty torn on how to rate this one, which is why I ended up in the middle with 3 stars. I think that a lot of people will really enjoy this story, but I also think that there are others that will have the same problems that I did with the book. I am curious to read more from Harms though, and I am interested to see where she takes this series after this book.

Riley is just getting out of an abusive relationship and has been withdrawn from living her life when her friend convinces her to get out again. Riley has been strong all her life growing up with four brothers, and refuses to let her ex continue to keep her from enjoying herself any more. Riley meets a sexy guy at the party her friend drags her to, but she is instantly convinced that he is giving her cheesy pick-up lines. When she sees him dancing with another girl she thinks that he is also a cheater and wants nothing to do with him. She moves forward and shortly after meets a nice and preppy guy who is far from her typical type of bad boys. Even though Grant is nice and everything she thinks she wants now, she doesn't feel the same chemistry with him as she did with Zander at the party. Soon Riley realizes that appearances can be deceiving though, and she decides to give Zander a chance after finding out that the girl he was with was actually his best friend.

The story is simple but sweet. I really liked the story. I'm impressed with Harms' handling of Riley's experiences with abuse because it not only portrays the experience of domestic violence but also the aftermaths. It is natural that Riley is cautious of her boyfriend's behavior. She doesn’t want to repeat her past. I have a soft spot for stories about and characters with crappy family members and can relate with Zander's feelings for his father. But more interesting is Zander's relationship with his best friend. I really liked the storyline with their changing friendship and how they have to adjust when Zander falls in love with Riley. My need for multiple storylines to increase the suspense of the story is satisfied. I appreciate the fact that Harms doesn’t exhaust the dramatic potential of the story in the arc of suspense. Other authors would have use Riley's ex or Zander's family to an extent that it would have been ordinary. Harms' arc of suspense stands out with the subtlety. She doesn’t need the dramatic effect to spice up the story.

Unfortunately, Harms' writing style and narration are a little bit too superficial to feel the character's emotions. There is only one scene that got me emotional involved; the rest of the book is just a good read. Harms doesn’t use the potential of emotionality with her descriptions and dialogues. The possibilities are there but serious and important conversations sound too posed and unnatural for me. A more detailed and elaborated writing style would have been better. The story is written in Riley's and Zander's first-person narratives but even the narration can't establish the connection and emotional involvement I need in books to rate them higher. But for all that I enjoyed the book. It wasn’t a waste of my time.

A true romance, with a definite swoon worthy leading man. This is one to read if your looking for a real life romance with heartache and betrayal and oh so good love scenes.

Riley was hurt by her former boyfriend of two long years, it started out good but about a year and a half into it he started drinking heavy and putting his hands on her in a way no man should ever put their hands on a woman. One night he beat her so bad it looked like she had been in a car accident, the youngest of her four brothers couldn't handle it anymore and took the law into his own hands. After that she became a recluse and rarely left her apartment.

After some time her roommate Kate, who was also her best friend, and her brother, the one who came to her rescue with her ex, decided it was time she got out and lived a little. So they took her to a party where she ran into a very stunning man, Zander. Zander went all googly eyed over Riley from the first time he laid eyes on her, but stumbled over his words when he approached Riley. Riley told him to take his cheesy pick up lines and go, feeling somewhat sorry about it after the fact until she saw him dancing with another woman. Though she would later come to find out the other woman was his best friend Beth. Zander couldn't get Riley out of his mind after that night and Beth spoke to Riley and basically set the two of them up.

There were many instances where Zander and Riley had misunderstandings, causing them to break things off. The two of them knew in their hearts though that the other was the only one they wanted. Life happens, fights happen, but only with true love can one forgive another to get past some of the things that the two of them faced. You will have to read the story to figure out if their love was strong enough to overcome the anguish.
