Beautifully Scarred by P. Rayne is now live!
Growing up, all we had was each other.
Jimmy's always been the one who protected me—at any cost. I was content to let him clean up my messes. And when he kept his promise to get us out of our hometown and living the lives we always dreamed of, I was happy to pretend everything would be okay... for a while.
While Jimmy was able to leave the past behind, mine felt like a tattoo I could never scrub clean.
Jimmy thinks he can fix me—he tries, and tries, and tries.
Sometimes love isn't enough to heal all the wounds from the past. Sometimes even your savior thinks you're not worth saving.
And he'd be right... until everything changed.
I've loved Lilah for as long as I can remember.
And for as long as I can remember, she's pushed down the traumas of her past until they became poison running through her veins, infecting everything she touched.
Watching the woman you love destroy herself piece by piece is the slowest, most painful form of torture I know.
Giving her up may be the only way to save her. But how do I just walk away from the one person I love most in this life?

4.5 Beautifully Scarred Stars
Beautifully Scarred is a far cry from the Contemporary Romances we have come to love from the writing duo Piper Rayne hence the new pen name P. Rayne but these ladies did a wonderful job with delving into the world of dark and taboo.
Lilah and Jimmy have moved to LA to start their lives over and leave their past behind them only for Lilah that's harder than she hoped it would be. Addiction has plagued her life for years and at times it put a strain on her relationship with Jimmy. Their love for one another was so deep I don't think anyone in their lives understood why he continued to stand by her the way he did but there were circumstances that bonded them together for life.
I loved the first part of this book and I am truly thankful that the authors left Lilah's abuse off page, it was a heartbreaking read that you will feel deep in your soul. The second part of the book takes place six years later and we see how Lilah turned her life around and she is thriving, she still battles the demons but she is clean and healthy. The two parts of the books show the before and after of Lilah's transformation beautifully, addiction is a disease and not one that is easily stopped and we get to see her struggles through it all.
Jimmy shows some growth but he pretty much stays the same which was fine by me since he was always a solid rock when it came to Lilah, there is one incident that pushes him to cut ties but that just gives us the break needed between the two parts and the six year gap.
There are trigger warnings for this book and to find them you need to go to Piper Rayne's website and look under the P. Rayne tab, they lay it all out for you and as I mentioned the abuse that Lilah suffered through as a child was done off page but there are times where she flashes back to them but again we do not get the gory details of it all.
I would recommend this book to those that enjoy Steamy Dark Romances, Childhood Sweetheart Romances, Second Chance Romances, or Celebrity Romances.
