From author Meghan March comes a sexy new standalone in the Beneath series.
Are you ready to fall in love with the villain?
I’m the guy you love to hate.
In every story in my life, I seem to end up playing the villain—and I’ve got the scars to prove it.
That role works fine for me, because I’m sure as hell not anyone’s hero.
I run my life and my empire with an iron fist—until she knocks my tightly controlled world off its axis.
She’s nobody’s damsel in distress, but I can’t help but want to save her anyway.
I guess we’re about to find out if there’s a hero buried beneath these scars.
This review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.
Beneath These Scars is the fourth installment in the Beneath series by Meghan March. Beneath These Scars is a story that has much more angst that I have even seen from this author but I had such a fun time with it and even though I wasn’t quite in the mood for this level of angst and bantering I eventaully adapted because …well…its MEGHAN MARCH ….do I EVEN need to say any more than that? LOL I am such a sucker for her writing style and the way that she writes a good romance and I always get such a kick out of her books and I definitely got such a fun one out of this one here.
In Beneath These Scars is a story that takes our two characters who have this sexy chemistry but well its really unrequited love here. Our heroine, Yve so doesn’t care for our hero….Lucas. She thinks he is arrogant cocky and rich and even though she wants to eat him sexually she doesn’t see any depths to him but as their chemistry builds, a secret from Yve’s past is back to haunt her, and Lucas has a fight on his hands on proving to Yve of his devotion and sincerity to her. But their road isn’t going to be easy, misunderstandings arise, danger erupts and their love will be tested in ways they can’t imagine…
This woman pushed all my buttons, taunted me, challenged me, mocked me. And the perverse son of a bitch that I was, I wanted more.
Beneath These Scars was such a delightful book and I couldn’t get enough of this one here. I will say that I got a hoot of an entertaining time with this couple because they definitely go at it and the sexual tension between these two is delicious. This is one of the true talents of Meghan March, is the way that she builds this tension and I just LOVED it. At first, boy these two really struggle with their animosity for each other and its pretty lively for sure. But what is done so well is their chemistry building into something more lasting and full of more depths that you expect from this author. Every SINGLE time I read this author, I am always bowled over by her talent in crafting such a masterpiece and she does no difference with this one. And another plus, her writing is so engaging. She offers such quick easy reads that you can easily get behind.
“Holding you,” he replied, and pulled me into his arms. “So you can break and not worry about falling apart. Just for today, Yve, let me hold you together.”
I really found it interesting especially what happens with the heroine who has suffered an abusive relationship in the past. She is not like your average heroine you expect to find, she is a bit crazy, fierce, determined and driven. I loved her personality and even though I couldn’t relate with her on some levels, she touched this reader in a way that was unexpected. She has such a fighting spirit and even though she could learn to swallow her pride a bit more, I did love seeing her journey through that experience and open herself to Lucas. Now Lucas was a fun hero, yes he can be arrogant…but what billionaire male isn’t??!! hehe I think it just comes with that, but he has so many hidden depths to him and when we start seeing him being more revealed with each chapter, you fall in love with him even more deeply.
Overall I found Beneath These Scars to be a vitalizing real romance that brings unique depths of emotion and intrigue that pulls you into a story that is gravitating in its beauty of feels
