When an off-hand comment links the two cases a chain of events begins that will destroy Ashley’s family, and suck Britt into an alliance with Rhea where the decisions she makes could cost her everything.
My REVIEW: (LAWonder10)
I have not read the previous two novels of this series, but it wasn't difficult to get an idea what occurred in the previous one. With that said, I still feel one can do a more thorough review if one knows the foundation of a series and what actually happened in a previous novel.
Rhea and Britt has reached a level in their relationship, they are moving to "the next step". Everything seems to be going in "their favor". However, everything may not be hpow it seems/
In 'Scar Tissue', there are multiple situations which confront Rhea and Britt. Some maybe related..or not!
The author has successfully gone very smoothly between the various situations without confusing the reader or causing a feeling of "disconnect". The characters are created in a way that the reader can feel connected to them. The scenes are very easily visualized , as well.
However, I still have not discovered whee the title originated from. The only incidents I can conclude it is from were so very vague, I don't feel it was a good choice. The "Bowser" would most likely, pass by this cover and never give a second thought to it.
There are great discussion topics within these pages for Book Clubs! If I did not have my religious beliefs, I could arrive at an agreement with a couple of the author's conclusions. They are worthy of debate. "If you were the characters involved in these dilemmas, would you chose to do the same?"
READER BEWARE: There are some non-explicit sexual situations and occasional words of profanity.
I won this. novel.This is my honest review of it.
I offer a Four Stars rating
