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.

Angela's Review

Scarred by Love follows the relationship of Riley and Zander, two college students who have been burned in the past by love. Riley is a college junior. She just got out of an abusive relationship and is scared to move on. Will her fear of more abuse and her lack of trust in men allow her to miss out of a relationship that could be her everything? Will Zander be able to show her that not all men are abusive?

Zander is such a great guy but his best friend Beth is something else. Beth has a boyfriend named Mark but she touches Zander like her life depends on it. Zander has been friends with Beth for so long, he doesn’t realize how his relationship with Beth looks in the eyes of other people. Will Zander be able to let Beth slide into second place for Riley? Will his relationship with Riley be more important than his relationship with Beth?

I really like this book. I thought it was well written with little to no mistakes. This book showed us just how much trust is important in a relationship. When you are in love with someone who has a best friend of the opposite sex, trust can be the only thing that saves a relationship. This book also shows just how important brothers are to their sisters.

The secondary characters were awesome for the most part. Carson and Kate were so funny at times. Their relationship was fun to follow as well as Riley and Zander.

I recommend this book to those of you who like to read about college students, hot guys in bands, or who like reading about overprotective big brothers.

I received Scarred by Love as an ARC for my honest review.

Candi's Review

I really loved this book!! Once I started it, I didn't want to put it down. I was hooked within the first few sentences. I love that this book was told from both Riley and Zander's POV.

After being in an abusive relationship, Riley decides jumping into another one is the last thing she needs...that is until one night at a party she meets Zander. But right after he flirts with her she catches him dancing with another girl and assumes he is just like all other men. After that night, she runs into Zander a few times but any attempt he makes to talk to her she shuts him down. She soon learns from her brother Carson that Zander is not who she first thought and decides to give him a chance.

Zander and his best friend Beth have always been close. After losing his mother to cancer Beth and her family is all he has ever had but does Beth feel the same way about Zander as he does for her? At first she seems ok with Zander and Riley's relationship. She even talks to Riley about what a good guy he is but soon her true colors come out and all I wanted to do was shake Zander to make him see who she really was. Will Zander ever wake up and see who Beth truly is before its to late? Will he lose Riley before he does? There are lots of twists and turns but trust must one click this book now and find out, you won't regret it!!

I loved Riley's 4 older brothers...I am really hoping we get more on them in the future and even more on Riley and Zander!!
