The beginning of the book was extremely difficult to get into. I understand the need to include the history between the two characters but I was VERY taken aback when the first sex scene took place. We're reading about children/teenagers one second and then boom, all of the sudden they're 18 and having sex. It was tough for me to read that particular part of the book. I feel as though there should've been more time transitioning them into adults before bringing detailed sex into the picture.
Once Hale left for the military, the book really picked up. Once years had passed by in the story, it was much more engaging. The development within their adulthood relationship was raw and beautiful. The heartache that both Ember and Hale went through was very relatable and emotional. I appreciate a book that makes you FEEL. Once they had sex as adults, I truly enjoyed the sex scenes. They were very sensual and you could just feel the love between them jumping off of the pages. This book would easily be a 5 star rating if it weren't for the beginning.
It is sexy and sweet and incredibly emotional!!
The plot line is so unique that I was instantly drawn into the story and the lives of the characters.
I definitely recommend Scorched to everyone and look forward to more books from the author in the future!
“We may be young but the love that we share is a love that can’t be lost. …my love for you will move mountains.”
I love how the author uses famous quotes throughout the book. They remind you of all the stories we’ve read over time that have shown a strong, true love that is almost soul-crushing. You can tell that a lot of heart went into this story and it’s really paid off because it’s a great debut novel!
I also loved both main characters! Ember is very strong and down to earth. She’s realistic and not full of fluffy glamour, just my kind of girl! She stands up for what she wants and believes in and tells it like it is. If you truly believe in something, fight for it…and she’s definitely got a lot to fight her way through. She lost her parents at a very young age but her Nan filled those shoes perfectly so that she never wanted for anything. Hale is so caring and considerate and has a hint of alpha. When you read some of his letters to Ember, you’ll get all the feels. It’s easy to see that Ember is his entire world. He’s had a rough childhood so Hale has some difficult choices to make. Choices that are necessary to ensure he can provide for his and Ember’s life together, choices that could also destroy everything but he’s strong enough to stand by those choices because he believes in them and does everything in his power to make it back to his one true love.
It’s not an easy road that they’ve travelled, but one that still leads them back to each other because in the end, love truly does conquer all.
*This is a standalone novel, no cliffhangers in sight.
Hale Jarreau left my life the same way he entered it - all at once.We once burned like a fire, raging and consuming and I spent my life loving him. I didn't have a choice.And then, he was gone; leaving my heart aching and my soul empty.Time doesn't heal a damn thing and pain comes in many forms. But time only makes that pain ache deeper.It makes forgetting impossible.Every love has its story.This one is ours.
Scorched was about a boy named Hale and a girl named Ember; Hale and Ember met when they were just kids. Hale didn't have the best family situation at home and very quickly he became attached to Ember and her grandparents. When Hale left Ember you could feel her lost reverence and wounded soul, with all her failed attempts at trying to move on with her life. Hale's deep rooted anger and frustration each time he denied himself what he truly wanted was just as impactful. They beautiful friendship turned into love and these two were perfect for each other.
