    5. Wow! This book sweet and hot! Definitely my favorite of Beth Michele's books. Scarred Beautiful is a beautiful, funny, sad, sweet, happy, sexy and loving story.Matt and Fran each had their own scars. Neither were looking for a relationship. But when the time was right, they would discover they were meant to be. Matt and Fran met (in Love Love) when his brother, Brad, was in the hospital and Fran was there to support her best friend/Brad's girl, Gabby. But it wasn't quite their time. Approximatel [...]


    6. Beth Michele does it again!Beautifully written and engaging from the very first page, I genuinely believe that this is the best of Beth!Fran led a deeply troubled childhood, of which she still bares the Physical and Emotional scars. We are taken back and given a glimpse of how her scars came about. It was a raw and emotional insight which really made me sad for her both as a scared little girl and the independent woman she would become. Fran is a perfect example of how, if we let them, our scars [...]


    7. Beth Michele has done it again! She has made me fall hopelessly in love with another one of her books. This book was at top of my to read list. Another book I was patiently waiting for. It certainly paid off. This book stayed with me long after I read it. This book was sweet and Heartfelt. It made me smile more times than I could count. The characters were wonderful, ones I wouldn't mind spending the day with.Fran is the loveable best friend from Love Love. We learn in Scarred Beautiful that Fra [...]


    8. 3.5 StarsI loved the prologue and I like the way the story started and where it was all going. Then somewhere around 35%, I wasn’t sure what was going on with the characters. I started questioning the hero and heroine’s relationship.The writing was good. There was not a lot of inner dialogue. It was not wordy. My issue was with the characters. I hoped that Matt would be more alpha in the relationship. We get dual POVs in this story so you know Matt’s thoughts about himself, his friends, an [...]


    9. I think Scarred Beautiful is my favorite of Beth Michele's books. So far.After losing both his mom and his sister to breast cancer, Matt is left with half a heart and the internal scars left behind. He was forced to grow up fast and take on the responsibility of his younger brother. This led to an almost compulsive need for perfection.After suffering horrible childhood abuse, and the loss of a loved one, Fran is left with only half her heart, external scars at her father's hands, and a countless [...]


    10. 4.5 StarsFran is a young, smart, savvy business woman who is scarred. Physically and mentally. She fights against the raging currents in her mind to keep her memories buried. She has established core relationships with her friends and she is on the fast track for her career. The one time she allowed herself to love a man; her heart was broken into a million pieces. And just like Humpty Dumpty, no one could put Fran together again.“I forgive you…and now I want you to forgive yourself”She ha [...]


    11. ARC Was Given to Blog for Honest ReviewNothing makes me happier than when I am reading a book and I get more out of it than just a great story. Beth takes us on an emotional journey with such positive life lessons throughout, that you can’t help but come out of reading this book a new positive person; who vows to be every ounce of the strong, amazing woman you know you were meant to be.Now I know I usually talk about the main characters and how they affected me and the story, but I feel like I [...]


    12. I’m so happy about “Scarred Beautiful,” and now that it’s released, I finally get to post my review for it!As you might know by now, I’m not much for revealing story lines in books—as a reader I hate it when a review gives details I’d rather learn as I go. Which is why I’m diving right into the top six “wow”-factors that made me all giddy:1) Great writing. This is a big one for me.2) Fran’s smartass attitude and blunt appreciation of a hot guy. I kept laughing out loud at h [...]


    13. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.This is a read that deals with abuse, so it's not for the heavy hearted unless you can take it. I've read such dark romance that I think I might be immune to these reads that brush upon the subject of abuse very lightly. I say that because this was just an alright read for me.We start with Fran Heller who has been living in New York but goes to Los Angeles for a convention for work. While there, she runs into her bes [...]


    14. What can I say about Scarred Beautiful?Well in one word… BREATHTAKING!I fell in love with this story from the first page and I was hooked. It is one of those un -putdownable books, it’s not often I fall in love with a book from page one but I really did with this one.The character and story line development are beautifully written and flow perfectly, the pace of the story is perfect, you don’t miss anything, you don’t have to re read anything.This book is filled with moments that made me [...]




    15. Melanie's 5 BIG Stars Review:Ok, I abso-friggin-lutely LOVED this book!!! The all caps are an understatement as to how much Fran and Matt's story compelled me from beginning to end. I have a ridiculous smile on my face and have to shake my head in disbelief at how lucky I got when I signed up for this blog tour.Scarred Beautiful has one of the most entertaining all around book cast I've ever encountered. Peyton, the snarky and sassy friend- the back and forth dialogue between her and Fran had me [...]


    16. ARC Was Given To Blog For An Honest ReviewThis is one of those stories that remind us of the lessons instilled in us growing up; beauty is only skin deep. It does not matter how beautiful you are on the outside if you have ugly inside of you. It is unfortunate that many of us measure ourselves on what other people think and sometimes do not believe we are just as beautiful as the models that we see on covers of magazines. We often let what is on the outside define us and we hide.What caught my a [...]


    17. I greatly appreciate an author’s ability to captivate my complete attention within the first few pages of a book. I love being taken over by a phenomenal read. I was absolutely hooked from the start of Scarred Beautiful and could not put it down until I read the final word. This was a truly outstanding romance with plenty of angst and tension mixed with dark elements and steamy passion.The prologue sets this story up with a moment in Fran Heller’s childhood. The words lead you to believe the [...]


    18. I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review.I gave this book 5 stars. This is the first book that I have read by Beth Michele.This is Fran and Matt's story. Fran is a beautiful young lady that is scarred on the inside as well as the outside. Her life has been anything but normal. She has been hurt by one of the people you are suppose to trust the most. And now Fran has her walls high, and is not going to let anyone in. Matt has lost two of the closest people in his life to him. He is hu [...]


    19. I first met Fran Heller as Gabby’s best friend in Beth Michele’s debut novel, Love Love. She was a feisty thing, but slightly broken on the inside from a traumatic and abusive childhood. In Scarred Beautiful, (a follow up to Love Love but can be read as a standalone) she’s still got that little bit of spark, but after experiencing another tragedy she’s closed herself off from most of the world, and has resigned herself to the fact that she’ll never be fully and truly happy. Despite bei [...]


    20. 4.5 stars!On the outside Fran is a young, successful, professional. Hidden underneath her layers Fran is scarred. Dealing with an abusive childhood and a sudden devastating loss, she is just trying to make it day to day without having more panic attacks.

    21. Have you ever wondered what it would be like if you went on a business trip and found the love of your life? Doesn't that sound like something amazing? Well that is what happens to Fran.

As luck would have it, Matt is also staying at the same hotel for the same conference. Fran is a super sweet, smart, down to earth gi [...]


    22. I was up and down while reading this book. It was cute and sweet and heavy at times. I was expecting the heaviness to be a huge weight to bare but it wasn't. It was almost a minute part of the story when I was expecting it to be huge. Small things here and there were dropped about the abuse Fran suffered but I kept wanting more. She seemed to be so messed up in her head, being away from family, losing her love in a sad way. The one person who saw past her uglinessMuch of this book is a group of [...]


    23. 4.5 Stars Beth Michele has a new book out and it is fabulous!!!

    24. Fran has been hurt by the one man who should have always protected her. Her father was a heartless bastard that tortured her and beat her mother.

    25. 4.5 starsSizzling Heat!Reading Beth Michele is like having that perfect piece of chocolate after a long day! I love they way she is really putting the "romance" back into contemporary romance novels.

    26. **ARC received from author in exchange for an honest review**Scarred Beautiful is a heartwarming read that leaves you warm and fuzzy. I would also describe it as a nice sweet treat. The prologue is emotional and I loved the way the story began. Francis Heller is a successful design manager. Fran is confident and has a beautiful appearance, but she's hiding some painful scars both emotionally and physically that many people don't know about. Fran meets sexy Matt Dixon while on a business trip to [...]


    27. I was lucky to have this book gifted by Beth and what a gift it was! I devoured this book!

She has to live with a broken heart and a past that haunts her. Here comes Matt, the most caring, sensitive man. Matt is a little bit control fre [...]


    28. Scarred Beautiful is the companion novel to "Love, Love" and I had high expectations. The story of Gabby was truly beautiful and Fran was a big part of it as her best friend and family. I wanted to learn more about her.I liked Scarred Beautiful, mostly because the characters are fun and their personalities are well defined. BUT I can't help but feel a little disappointed when it comes to some decisions from the author; for example, Fran already had a rich backstory to explore and we didn't reall [...]
