This book is geared for college aged and a bit older. For so many serious subjects, about rape & abuse, I felt like the sex scenes were too numerous and trashy.

I enjoyed it. The good guy gets the girl. I liked Dom, he wasn't to pushy he kind of let the relationship work itself out.

I received an ARC of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.  Sweet and sexy at the same time. Scarred definitely went beyond my expectations. I've already said before that I'm quite picky when it comes to New Adult novels, but this book is among the few ones that I liked. First, I liked the characters. Both Dominick and Denise are just genuinely nice people. Although Dominick has a terrible past, it doesn't make him a nasty, angry bad boy so common in the NA genre. Denise is a smart girl. She's nice enough but smart not to immediately trust strangers, even strangers as hot and chivalrous as Dominick. And speaking of chivalry, I liked the fact that their first meeting happens in a relaxed but meaningful manner with Dominick coming to Denise's aid during a problematic situation. It only goes to show that chivalry definitely isn't dead. So the cover apparently suggests that Scarred is an interracial romance. However, I didn't read anything that says the characters are interracial. Correct me if I'm wrong, guys. Maybe I just totally missed that part or something. But yeah, I couldn't really picture the characters' appearances in my head. I just relied on the cover models to visualize Dominick and Denise. So I think the characterization is somewhat lacking. And here I am waiting for diverse characters. But the story's so good! I liked that they started out as friends, even though Dominick was immediately attracted to Denise from the time they met. The build-up of romance between the two was slow, but I'm not complaining. I'd prefer that over insta-love anytime. And I admire Dominick's respect for Denise. He was rejected, but he took it gracefully and remained her friend. Nice guys for the win! The conflict (aka William) is not really something to fuss about, but enough to give the characters the obstacle they needed to overcome to be together. Although, Dominick and William's last confrontation was a bit short and anti-climactic, in my opinion. I was like, "What was that? William just broke down and cried while pointing a gun to Dominick and threatening his life for three seconds? Dude, I need more action!" All in all, Scarred is a well-written and enjoyable New Adult read. Aside from the few peeves mentioned above, I really liked reading this book. It's romantic and sweet and there are also bits of humor in there. Dominick has some serious issues, but he shows that the past can be overcome and he certainly did it.

This was a refreshing story in the fact that Dominick is a twenty one year old college student that is looking for a meaningful relationship and not a one night stand. He works hard in college and at his job. He has demons from his past that he is also dealing with. Denise is your average college girl who does not have a tragic past. She and Dominick don't even have an instant connection. They have to work on their relationship. I don't want to give away the story so I will say this is a refreshing story that does not follow a cliche. Dominick and Denise are characters you will be able to feel like they are your friends. I loved that they did not fall in instant love. I will be looking for more books by Marie Long.  I received a gift copy in exchange for an honest review.
