Sometimes, love comes with a price…

The past is gonna try and bring you down, but you gotta fight. Fight hard for what you love. Fight to win is what twenty-two-year-old Dominick Anderson believes, but his life is a struggle. Growing up with an abusive father has made Dominick slow to love and trust, and he relies on his brother Kevin to keep him on a straight path.

Dominick fights his demons every day, every night. Now a sophomore at the University of Washington and working a steady job at a mechanic’s shop, Dominick wants to create a better life and find the future his father never wanted him to have.

Dominick suppresses his identity and feelings until he meets Denise Ramsey. Smart, stunningly gorgeous, and sharing his love for motorcycles, Denise is everything Dominick longs for in a girl but knows he can never have.

When a past love threatens her life and brings out Dominick’s dark side, he must decide if she’s worth the risk.

“Dom and Denise will make you believe in happily ever after. Dominick is definitely book boyfriend material.” 
Marie Hall, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of A MOMENT

I'm really excited for this book that I even requested for an ARC of it. Unfortunately, I still haven't received it so I wasn't able to read and review Scarred in time for the release. I'm still keeping my fingers crossed and waiting for the postman, though. ^__^
Happy Book Birthday, Marie Long! Cheers!

Julie is a Filipina blogger who pretends she has insomnia so she can stay up late reading. When she's not buried in books, she can be found watching anime, drinking chocolate-flavored instant coffee, lurking on the internet, daydreaming and talking about herself in third person. She loves purple and anything sweet!


  1. I love the cover! It's so nice to finally see a book and a cover that features two people from different cultural backgrounds. We need more diversity like this in our reads!
