Blog Tour and Giveaway: Scarred Beautiful by Beth Michele

~ Synopsis ~

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.**

3.5 Star Review

This book was a little slow paced for me.  It had parts that were really good and held my attention and other parts I was putting book down to do other things.

Fran has had a rough life.  She has had so much pain and heartache that she has built up a wall around her heart.  She doesn't do relationships because they end badly.  Though she is not so sure about that anymore after meeting Matt.  She can't deny her feelings for him.  She wants him and wants to live in the moment.  Can she open up and live in the moment?  Or will she run?

Matt has lost both his mom and sister to cancer. He threw himself into work.  He grew up fast to help take care of his brother and sister.  They needed him then his sister got sick and he helped her.
He doesn't realize his life isn't perfect until Fran barges into it.  She challenges him and doesn't let him get away with stupid shit.  Will he be the man to knock down her walls?  Or will they both run away?

This book had some really good moments and some slow moments.  I have to give this book 3,5 stars because of that.  I recommend you read it though.  You may LOVE it!!

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.
