Review: Written in the Scars by Adriana Locke

Written in the Scars is the first book I have ever read from Adriana Locke, though she has been on my TBR for awhile now. I really enjoyed this book, though it wasn't an easy read. This story was emotional and heartfelt and while I liked it a lot, it also made me cry. I definitely want to read more from Adriana Locke now though.

Ty and Elin knew when they met in school that they were meant to be together. They got married and started planning their life together. But when an accident and hard times happened, Ty left leaving Elin with a broken heart. Now Ty is back, and determined to get his family and future back. But can she let him back in knowing that he can is the one that can hurt her the most? What happens when life throws them more obstacles that can destroy everything that they are working towards rebuilding? 

I loved Ty and Elin. Both of them had been through a lot, and were proof that sometimes love isn't enough to ensure a marriage works. Marriage takes hard work and these two were both struggling with everything that had happened. Ty didn't make the best choice in leaving, though I did understand his point of view and why he did it. But while both Ty and Elin had been hurting, their connection and love had never died or dimmed. They had chemistry and were great together, and I really believed in their love. I couldn't get enough of them.

I also really loved their group of friends/family. Elin and Ty's best friends were her twin brother Jiggs, her best friend Lindsay (she was married to Jiggs) and their other best friend Cord. I really felt the strong bond and connection between the five of them and I adored them all. They all made this book enjoyable to read, even though there were tough times. There was one thing that happened that broke my heart and really upset me and honestly that was the only thing that kept this one from being a five star book for me. I know that this was the author's vision and that she had her reasons for it happening the way it did, but for me it was really hard to swallow and made the ending a bittersweet one for me. I wish she hadn't gone there, but that is probably a personal thing and might not bother most readers the way it did me. This is still a great read though, and I am looking forward to reading more from Adriana Locke in the future.
