Life leaves you scarred. Love can make you beautiful.
Sixteen year-old Sloane Munster had the perfect life, until she didn’t. Beautiful, popular and the best swimmer on the school team, she dreamed of one day qualifying for the Olympics. And things were looking good with Luke – the hottest swimmer on the competitive circuit. But everything changed when a horrific accident left her badly scarred and emotionally traumatized.
Nine months later, Sloane is ready to reboot her life. Starting her senior year at a different school, she’s thrilled when she discovers Luke is a student in her new class. But when she smiles at him, he glares back with revulsion and she’s sure he’s disgusted by her ugly scar. No matter how hard she tries to keep out of his way, life keeps bringing them together.
Luke is confused and conflicted, attracted and appalled. He shouldn’t want her, but he does. Despite misunderstandings and guilty secrets, the chemistry between them sparks and he can’t seem to keep away from her. Meanwhile, tensions are mounting at their school where bullying is rife and Sloane is not the most deeply scarred person.
Sharp with bittersweet humor, Scarred is an intense, beautiful, compelling story of life, death, damage, and fighting for love against all the odds.
