Grievous (Scarlet Scars #2)

Grievous (Scarlet Scars, #2)

Grievous by J.M. Darhower

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Excellent

I’m pretty sure I would read ANYTHING this author writes. Possibly even owner’s manuals. She’s THAT good.
I loved the humor in this duet. While the other aspects I was looking for were certainly there as well (dark romance and suspense) it is a rare and welcome surprise to also find humor. I actually laughed from these books, and let me tell you: I am a tough cookie to crack. To get an actual laugh or cry out of me with a book is a feat.
I still have one more series left unread from this author, and I am SO looking forward to it. When she writes the dual POVs you really “hear” each personality, loud and clear. She is so, so good at getting a reader inside the characters’ heads. It makes for an outstanding read. She also takes the time to build the characters and relationships. Having this story be a duet allowed for it to become SO much more than what it would have been if she tried to squish it into 180 pages of standalone book.
In short: read book 1 first, but then come back to this one! Also, I love J.M. Darhower!

Once upon a time, there was a girl who stopped believing in fairy tales after her innocence was stolen.

Morgan Myers is tired. So damn tired. Most people either push her around or brush her off, and she’s not putting up with it anymore. Determined to reclaim the life that had been stolen from her, she puts her trust in the last person she ever expected to: the notorious Scar. Morgan sees a side of him that few people seem to know–the man, not the myth. Lorenzo. And what she sees, she likes, a lot more than she thought she would.

But fairy tales aren’t real, as life likes to remind her. Some dragons, you just can’t slay, no matter how hard you fight them. And when hers comes back around, breathing fire, she’s forced to face some unimaginable horrors. But lucky for Morgan, there’s a white knight in combat boots out there that isn’t afraid of monsters.

You see, it’s impossible to be afraid of something you face every day in the mirror.

Compulsive reader. Romantic suspense/contemporary romance/dark romance/NA romance addict. Particularly fond of mafia, forced/arranged marriage, secret baby, kidnapping, and dark alpha heroes. Just out here doing my part for humanity- these books won't read themselves.
