Publisher's Summary

Kaiya Marlow has always been cautious, precise in every decision she makes. When her dark past threatens to resurface, she decides to take precautions to protect herself by enrolling in self-defense classes at her gym. Her instructor, Ryker Campbell, is the tattooed womanizer everyone warns about. Kaiya attempts to resist Ryker's advances, but the more time they spend training together, the harder it is for Kaiya to resist him. Ryker's view on relationships is simple: strictly sex, nothing more. Haunted by demons from his past, he never allows himself to become attached to any woman. No attachment means no weakness, no vulnerability, no pain. He doesn't realize that his whole world is about to be turned upside down when Kaiya enters his self-defense class. Determined to have her, at least for one night, Ryker sets a plan into motion that will change both of their lives forever. Will love be able to heal their scars, or are they too deep to overcome?

Beautiful, Sexy, and Gut-wrenching Love Story!!!!

What did you love best about The Scars of Us?

I absolutely loved the whole book. But, the subject matter was handled beautifully by the author.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favorite character was Ryker. His strength was the backbone to help Kaiya over one her inner demons. Plus, he was so hot.

What does Wen Ross and Kai Kennicott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I thought their performance was amazing. They were perfect for the characters, clear voices, and read with so much emotion. Something I would have never experienced reading the book on my own.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I actually did read it all in one sitting. I could not put it down.

Any additional comments?

This was the first book I have read by Nikki Narvaez, but it absolutely will jot be the last. Her writing is not only descriptive, but she makes you experience all the emotions the characters in the story are feeling. I actually cried during certain scenes which rarely do when reading a book. This was a very sensitive subject, but Nikki handled it beautiful and gives hope to those who otherwise thought they would never find someone to love them and the scars they possess. Well done Nikki Narvaez.

Crazy good!

This book was a wonderful example of the scars we all gain as we go through life. Some worse than others but we all gain them in some way shape or form. It is how we battle past them that counts. You feel for the characters and become so immersed in their journey that it is hard to part from them. We are all scarred and deserve to be loved - scars and all.

Narration is amazing- The Duet style narrating adds something special to the book. Wen's voice is something i can never get tired of.
