Book: Scarred by Love

Author: C.A. Harms
Genre: Romance

Riley thought she was in love. She thought she found the perfect guy until his aggressive behavior became too much to handle and she ran.

Becoming withdrew from the world and hiding from the chance of loving again. Having four older brothers and a determined best friend she had no choice but to stand strong.

Over time Riley was able to open up once again. She had no idea that the one person she needed was right under her nose.

She was guarded and hesitant when it came to bad boys...after all it was a bad boy that shattered her once before.

Zander wanted the girl from the party. He wanted to be near her even though she continued to push him away. He couldn’t let go of the gorgeous girl with those stormy eyes.

They both had secrets they kept hidden from one another. They found it easier to talk to others than to confide in each other. Riley begins to realize Zander isn't who she thought he was and falling for the sexy voiced Lead Singer/Guitar player may be just what she needs.

They struggle through hard times and learn to trust again. But will the love that grows be enough to hold them together or will the heartache they suffer drive a wedge between them forever.

They could be toxic to one another or they could heal the wounds that run deep within their souls.

Scarred By LoveScarred By Love by C.A. Harms
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

***I received this Arc for an honest review.***

This is my first time reading for C.A. Harms I enjoyed the book Scarred by Love. It hits on a subject that is hidden by alot of women today. Abuse! And Riley Parks has experienced it.

Riley Parks is in college and has been living with Parker. Well Parker is a drinker and doesnt handle it well at all. In fact he has drank one time too many this time and has done enough damage for a lifetime. He has Riley Scarred to love again. Riley decides enough is enough. With 4 brothers Riley turns to them now and one handles the issue for her. All four of her brothers are older than her and very protective.
She recovers from the mental anquish and physical damage from Parker. Its time to take back her life and stop hiding. So she goes out with the her best friend,Kate. A night out is what she needs. They all decide to go to the party together tonite.Carson seems to be the one she connects with the most. Carson and her best friend and roomate,Kate, hit it off. Kate is quite taken with Carson but his is one of the brothers that hasnt decided to settle down with one woman. Til now. Kate and Carson become quite close and Riley keeps walking in on their many love sessions. It sickens her with her brother and Kate being so openly in their lovemakeing. They seem to bicker all the time but yet they stay together.

In comes Zander. One look at Riley dancing with the group of girls she with has Zander looking. He tries a cheesy pick up so Riley thinks and that just turns her head the other way. But for Zander it wasnt a line and he was serious. Hes interested! Zander goes back with his head hanging. But Beth his best friend pushes him to go for it. As Riley goes out for soem fresh air she notices Zander with his arms around another woman,Beth.

Riley isnt sure of Zander at all. She has the butterflies from just being close by him. "Bad Boys...off limits." Riley meets Grant. Preppy guy, nice looking, different from her usual. She dates him and finds out there is just no chemistry there between them. She doesnt have the butterflies with him like she did with Zander from the party.

She starts to date Zander and things are nice but he just keeps pissing her off and cant seem to understand why. He has the feelings for her from the begining, but Riley has been Scarred By Love so she has her guard up. But its hard and she likes Zander alot. But he just keeps screwing up and doesnt put her first before his friends. She doesnt like it. They never get any time alone and she is always having to share him with his best friend and his best friend is a little too friendly for her.

Will Riley ever get her HEA with Zander? Or will he continue to keep screwing up and not open his eyes and look around him to see why he keeps screwing up?

I enjoyed the book. I loved the characters. Rileys brothers are just so protective over her. Loved it. I hated Rileys atittude most of the time in the book. She was just a bit of prissy bitch at times and just kept things stirred up between them. Zander on the other hand was a blind fool and didnt open his eyes to see why he kept pushing her buttons.
