I was four years old when I learnt what evilness the world could bring. I fought through life with my scarred soul, wrangled through the dark empty nights where I’d pray I didn’t wake up the next morning. I would shut my eyes and mentally take myself to my happy place.
The sound of waves crashing on the sand under my feet.
The final time the cold blade pushed up against my thigh, and I waited for my blood to trickle over the other One hundred and thirty-six scars that covered my skin— never came. Who was this man who just saved me? He had no idea how close I came to ending myself that day. I was ready to blow my brains all over the bedroom walls and I had a nine sitting under my pillow to prove it.
Some people have families, I had engineered human killing machines surrounding me my whole life. I’d been a part of this unit since I was a baby, raised in a community that was shut off from the real world. A community where we were nothing but empty vessels, until Hella (my best friend) and I escaped. Hella took us to a girl who was in foster care with him before he was summoned into The Army. After finding out yet another complication in my life, I needed space. I booked in to a run down apartment, ready to clear my head. Only my head didn’t clear, because I was haunted every night from the screams that would vibrate through my walls.
This is not a story of a perfect man coming in to save the day. This is a story of what happens when fate interferes and two completely broken souls collide.
*Potential triggers lie within this book.
** This book is gritty and contains dark content.
Meadow is a young girl who had a HORRIBLE childhood and the scars physically and emotionally to prove it. She focused on herself and making sure what happened to her during her childhood never happened to her again. One night would forever change her life and the life of others.
Beast was a man who never knew a normal family; he was taken from his parents at an early age which was the start of his horrific life. A monster is what he called himself and what he believed he was and will always be. Certain events in his life threw him into a path that would unknowingly pull at something deep within him.
Dark and twisted events happen throughout this book but I was sucked in completely. I was surprised at certain events throughout the book which only left me wanting more. I felt for Meadow during her early years and I ached along with her during the later years! I was completely blown away by the ending and I am going crazy with need to know more!! Amo Jones took all my senses when I read this book that One Hundred and Thirty-Six Scars will demand the 5 stars it so amazingly deserves!
Dark, twisted, HOT, Steamy and dangerous…all worth this suspenseful read!!
