Blog Tour: Scarred Beautiful by Beth Michele; Review + Giveaway




Scarred Beautiful
Author: Beth Michele
Release Date: 28 january 2014

Love believes in second chances.

Francis Heller lives with two truths. Love hurts and beauty is only skin deep.

With midnight black hair, moss-colored eyes, and traceable curves, Fran is the picture of beauty and confidence...on the outside. But deep down she is tormented. Not just by the jagged scars that line her body, but by the horrible memories that cloud her mind and haunt her dreams. The ones that make her want to flee from herself and from the devastating pain. The ones that cause her to placate herself with sex. Anything to make her forget. But for Fran, there's nowhere to hide from the darkness that swallows her whole.

Matt Dixon is the gorgeous brother of her best friend's fiancée. He's suffered losses of his own and isn't willing to let anyone in until his unexpected encounter with Fran Heller, the girl who challenges him and causes him to take a second look, not only at her, but at his own life.

But Matt has scars of his own.

Together can they help each other discover that second chances really do exist? That love doesn't have to hurt? Or has the damage they've both suffered cut too deep to ever heal?

**NA/Contemporary Romance with language and mature sexual content.**

Excerpt

Fuck she’s hot. I can feel her uneven breaths against my lips as her chest rises and falls after hearing my words. Those eyes, like green panes of stained glass. That plump bottom lip, I’d love to take between my teeth. And she smells good, like jasmine and lavender.
I’m not sure what possessed me to say that to her. I know nothing about her. She’s like a little spark though. She lit me up tonight with her smart, sexy mouth, and now she’s got me thinking thoughts I haven’t in a long time, stirring something deep inside of me that’s been asleep. Like how I want to take her right here, make her scream my name while she comes apart beneath me.
The elevator doors open and she ducks down and sneaks underneath my arm to make her way out.
“Goodnight, Matt.”
I hold the doors open and watch her walk down the hall, taking one last look over her shoulder before she turns the corner to her room, leaving me with only one thought.
When do I get to see her again?
Shit. I’m fucked.

Review

Yay, it's Fran's story! When I read Love Love, Fran was a stand out character who deserved her HEA so badly.

The Fran we meet in Scarred Beautiful is different. She's suffered even more since Love Love, and she struggles to be the bubbly, vivacious girl we know she is. My heart broke for her, but she learns to heal and move forward, with the help of the delectable Matt.

Matt has scars of his own. After losing his mother and sister to cancer, Matt took on the role of parent to his younger brother. Having order and control over his life becomes essential to Matt, but Fran comes along like a feisty little whirlwind and gets under his skin- something he didn't want to happen and never knew he needed.

I loved these two together. They had a fun chemistry, tempered by a very passionate and tender romance. It was also kind of perfect, because now Fran and Gabrielle will be even more like sisters!

This is a very sweet, romantic read. If you enjoy engaging romances, with healing, humour and passion, then look no further for your next read!

About the Author


I am a wife, a mom, an author, and a lover of all things chocolate, well, anything sweet really. While stuffing chocolate in my face, I enjoy reading young adult and new adult novels furiously, and spending time with my husband and two adorable children who keep me on my peppermint pink painted toes. Those same children who inspire me to tell silly stories that cause hysterical giggles to tumble from their bellies. I love to laugh and love to have a good cry, especially after reading a novel that stretches my soul, one that makes me feel, and lingers in the corner of my heart. I’m a hopeless romantic and a happily ever after fanatic, and I love to write about LOVE. I began writing when I was in middle school, penning anything from short stories, to poetry, and then later moved on to write children’s books. I have now endeavored into New Adult and Contemporary Romance novels and am loving every minute of it. My first novel, Love Love, was released in May, 2013.
