New Release Review: The Scars I Bare by J.L. Berg


tSIB Amazon
The Scars I Bare 
by J.L. Berg 
Publication Date: March 12th, 2018 
Genre: Contemporary Romance
A Bay the Bay Stand-alone novel

Every scar tells a story...
Some are etched on the skin, for the whole world to see.
Others are buried deep, so deep, only the heart can truly find them.

Dean Sutherland was the quintessential guy next door. Strong and dependable, with a heart of gold, he knew exactly where his life was headed. Until one fateful night at sea ripped away everything. Now he’s adrift, a man without a purpose.

Cora Carpenter thought she had the perfect life. A successful career, an affectionate husband and a daughter who adores her. But soon that perfect world is crashing down around her, and she’s in need of a fresh start. Moving to a remote town on the coast of North Carolina seems like the perfect plan. That is until she finds herself face to face with a kindred soul from her past.

Dean and Cora have more in common than either are willing to admit. Both deeply rooted in their pain, they can’t help but find hope in each other’s eyes and passion entwined with every touch. But can two broken hearts make a whole?

Will the scars they’ve bared to one another poison their happily ever after, or can love truly heal all?


My review: 4 stars!
What a sweet and touching romance! Although it can be read as a standalone, it features characters from The Choices I've Made, and I truly think you'll be missing out if you don't read that first. We were introduced to Dean in the first book, and I was so curious to see how his story would play out and was so glad to have the chance to read this book. Dean and Cora were both well-developed characters, and I enjoyed reading Dean's journal and Cora's blog posts throughout the book. Cora's daughter Lizzie was so cute and sweet and a great addition to the story. Both Dean and Cora have difficult pasts, but it was wonderful to see them come together and heal.

I’m a California native, who lives in the South – Virginia to be exact. I still prefer sushi to fried chicken, avocados to okra, and I absolutely loathe humidity. I do love watching the seasons change though. My husband and I have been here for over a decade, and I still get giddy like a school girl every time it snows. It’s magical!
I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters and two rescue pups I like to call my “coworkers”. I’m obsessed with chocolate, minions, anything Harry Potter and I love to watch re-runs of Friends and Gilmore Girls!
