    3. 3.5 stars rounded up to 4. This book started out slowly and I found both the writing and the storyline very "youngish." Now, what does "youngish" mean? To me it means that the writer was expecting the reader to be in their teens or late teens, not a seasoned romance slut like myself. That said, the book was still enjoyable just a tad bit bland.The H is a young Marine coming home after being horribly scarred from an explosion. He hates how he looks and assumes everyone else will also. He only goe [...]

    5. I received a free copy of this book in a giveaway and this has not affected my opinion in any way. 'Beneath the Scars' is the story of Riley, a young veteran who is badly scarred, and Eponine, a twenty-one-year-old who is working hard to look after her little sister as their parents have died. The friendship they slowly strike up takes Riley by surprise as he hasn't had many positive experiences with people since he came home.This is a clean and heart-warming romance story that would be suitable [...]

    6. The storyline behind "Beneath the Scars" is a heart wrenching one that makes you ache. Unfortunately, it took me some time to read and finish, but I enjoyed the book, despite how long it took. I believe there were a few grammatical errors, perhaps a misspelled word or two, but that's neither here nor there. Overall, Beneath the Scars was an enjoyable read.

    7. What a sweet love story! I read it in a day because I couldn't put it down. I had to know what was going to happen next.The characters are extremely easy to like, and the author's writing makes you feel so invested in their story. It was one of those books that I was sad when it ended because I really connected with the characters, and I wanted more of them.

    8. *3.5 starsOverall, I enjoyed this book quite a bit, however, the reason I gave it 3.5 stars is I felt the typos were very distracting, so fellow grammar nazis beware, and I also thought the characters were a bit typical. However, if you enjoy beauty and the beast type stories, and you like seeing emotionally wounded characters transformed by love, this book may be for you!

    9. 2.5 stars.Ni bien, ni mal, sino todo lo contrario.La idea estaba bien, no es original, pero estaba bien, pero me he perdido un poco por culpa de las repeticiones y de la falta de sutileza.Ha llegado un momento en que estaba más preocupada contando las veces que los protagonistas “volvían los ojos” (hasta dos veces en una misma frase) que en la historia en sí. Parecerá una tontería pero ha sido excesivo. Al igual que ha sido excesivo empezar cada frase con el nombre propio del personaje. [...]

    10. Everyone has tough spots in life, and what we do with those situations that make us. Beneath the Scars is my first full length New Adult novel, it was a little different to write, including me having to write woman instead of girl. I loved these characters, it made writing this story so enjoyable. Charlotte was suppose to be a background character, but she is a little pushy ;) and Riley I hope you all enjoy him as much as I have. Eponine is hopefully considered a strong woman, I do try to keep m [...]

    11. Not a bad story but there were so many misspellings and errors that it took me out of the story multiple times. "Costumer" instead of "customer". "Shinning" instead of shining. And that is just two that were done several places. I honestly couldn't read more than a page or two without a mistake jarring me out of the story.
