Amy's 5 star Review of Written in the Scars by Adriana Locke
Falling in love is easy.
Falling out of love is the hardest thing in the world.
And Elin and Ty Whitt are terrible at it.
The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build.
Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible.
Through the tears, the second-guesses, the memories of a life built together, the world keeps spinning. With each turn comes clarity and hope—sometimes in the form of a pair of muddy boots by the back door or from the words of a wise friend.
When Ty shows back up with a newfound determination to put his family back together, Elin's torn between the fights of the past and the possibility of a new start. This is the man that holds her heart, the man she loves beyond anything else. But this is also the one person in the world that can cause her the most pain.
Life’s not always easy. Love’s not for the faint of heart. But with life comes lessons and Ty and Elin have the scars to prove it. But it's their love written in those scars that will hold them together … or break them apart.
A brand new STANDALONE ROMANCE from USA Today Bestselling author Adriana Locke.
Dear lord … two emotionally draining books in two days for me. Elina and Ty Whitt are a couple whom you will soon not forget. Each page is a continually stream of pulling you heart out of your chest and stomping all over it. There were times I wanted to punch them both and tell them how ridiculous they were being but Cord took care of that for me. Sweet sweet Cord …. No words for that character. I will need numerous sleeps to recover from this one.
I'm not sure how to tell you to dive into this story except to use caution with your heart. What I will tell you is Elin and Ty’s book will teach you valuable lessons in love, trust, and compassion. It will also teach you that family isn’t always blood and those willing to put themselves in the path of harm shielding you are the ones who are the angels on earth. There are so many magnificent characters in this book. Lindsay, Jiggs, Becca, Yogi and more. Dustin is going to be a story in itself I hope as well as Becca down the road. I hope this is not the end. It can't be …
High school sweethearts, Elin and Ty are fighting to stay above ground with their feelings. Things happened, things were said, heartbreak was suffered alone and now struggling to get that back means opening up your heart for potentially another brutal lashing. With the wisdom of friends and the working together with the trials that stand before them they may just make it.
This was an incredible read. Bring your box of tissues because you are going to need it. I couldn’t catch my breath. I knew it was coming and I couldn’t prepare myself enough. I hope you click this one up. I'ts free on Kindle Unlimited and worth every penny if you have to swipe that card.
You are one heck of a storyteller Adriana. Review to post to Ramblings From Beneath The Sheets.
