Read one of Weber s stories previously I was impressed by how believable her characters were and this was what made the story so engaging for me They feel like real people and this made the book hard to put down The romantic side of things was sweet and resulted in a satisfying feel good endingOverall this is a realistic and heart warming romantic tale and I would recommend it highly to fans of the romance genre 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 Sometimes our lives don t turn out the way we had hoped Circumstances beyond our control change our fate After the death of her parents twenty three year old Eponine struggles to provide for herself and her ten year old sister so she won t lose custody Riley struggles to accept his new life after he was terribly scarred by the warBENEATH THE SCARS By Author Ottile by Author Ottile is the story of one woman s courage as she puts her own life aside to care for her sister Eponine faces a case worker A modern day version of Beauty and the Beast Riley is about to be deployed so he breaks up with his girlfriend he wasn t really attached to her anyway She curses him by saying that looks will only get you so far and hopes that a bomb explodes and ruins his looks Eponine has lost her parents in a freak accident she is now the guardian of her 10 year old sister Eponine

AwesomeThis book is a great beach day read Loved itI I can
T Wait To GetWait To Get to get on the next one 35 starsOverall I enjoyed this book uite a bit however the reason I gave it 35 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 35 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 blandThe 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 goes out in the dark covered by a hoodie and otherwise lives like a hermit in his apartmentThe h is a 21 year old girl whose parents have been illed and she is now forced to care for her 10 year old sister All of her dreams have been put on hold so that she can work and eep a roof over their heads She moves into the same apartment complex as the Marine and slowly with the help of the Marine s sister and just the force of the h s generally good and caring heart they become friends and eventually off screen than friendsUnfortunately we got a lot of the friend building moments but very little of the real relationship building but there was a very nice epilogue at the end which was satisfying Another big highlight of the book is the 10 year old sister She has the confidence and mouth on her that only a 10 year can have and it is really funny at times This is one of those books where you feel sad when it s over because the main characters feel like they ve become part of your extended family and you miss them when there s no to read Weber has a talent for the tiny details that bring each and every one of her characters to life Even the dog has a realistic personality When Eponine and Riley first meet they are both suffering from past events Riley is struggling with the events of everyday living. Corporal Riley Nolan is back home and out of the hospital after sustaining severe injuries in a skirmish overseas His physical injuries may be healed though he is left with horrible scars all over his body His mind is still healing and he has.
