Review - Beneath These Scars by Meghan March

Beneath These Scars
by Meghan March
Series: Beneath, #4
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: September 22, 2015

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.

Another great read from Meghan March! This has become one of my favorite series – I just love all of the characters and each and every story in this series has pulled me in and kept me reading well past my bedtime.

Lucas Titan is the guy we all love to hate. He’s got it all, but he also has the scars that he carries inside that drives him to be the villain that he sees himself as. I loved watching his world get turned upside down by Yve – she was just what he needed, someone to stand up to him and challenge him at every turn. He’s so used to calling the shots that when Yve won’t fall in line like everyone else, he can’t help but be intrigued and ultimately ensnared by her.

Of course Yve knows getting involved with another rich guy is only setting herself up for more hurt, but she simply can’t get her mind and her body on the same page. She’s been a victim in the past and is determined to never be one again. Of course she’s so intent on being strong she is scared to put trust in anyone to help her, something that Lucas is determined to do. I loved the strength that Yve had and it was wonderful watching her begin to trust and rely on someone other than herself – even if it was Lucas Titan!

These two were HOT together – even though they don’t like each other (or so they said!), their attraction was off the charts and there was no denying they wanted each other. This made for some great dialogue between the two – it was so much fun watching Yve try to put Lucas in his place and keep the upper hand.
“I can’t help it that my body wants you. Doesn’t mean I’m gonna give in.”

I smiled, feeling like a class-A predator. “You won’t be able to resist, so why fight it?”

“Because you’re a prick.”

I laughed. “I’ve never been so entertained to be insulted by someone.”
The suspense part of the book was well done. Watching Yve’s past catch up to her made a nice backdrop to the relationship part of the story. Without this plot line I don’t think there would have been a chance for these two to break down the emotional barriers they both had built. I loved the plot twist at the end and loved the way all the parts and pieces came together.

Emotionally I didn’t make as deep a connection with Lucas and Yve as I did with the characters in the other books. I loved both of them and was rooting for them to find their happy ever after, but because of how these characters were made, it was hard to get beneath the surface to really “feel” with them. Both Lucas and Yve are wrapped pretty tight, and although there were a couple of moments, these two kept their emotions pretty closed off.

I loved catching up with many of the characters from the other books. One of my favorite parts about this series is the interaction between all the characters and coming across bits that are referenced between books – the author has done a great job weaving all these stories together!

I highly recommend this book and series – as I said before, this series has quickly become one of my favorites and Lucas and Yve did not disappoint!

I received a copy of this book from the author/tour host via NetGalley for an honest review.
