Review ~ Beneath These Scars (Beneath, #4) by Meghan March

Beneath These Scars (Beneath, #4)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: September 22nd 2015

Publisher: Self-published

I’m the guy you love to hate. 

In every story in my life, I seem to end up playing the villain—and I’ve got the scars to prove it.

That role works fine for me, because I’m sure as hell not anyone’s hero. 

I run my life and my empire with an iron fist—until she knocks my tightly controlled world off its axis.

She’s nobody’s damsel in distress, but I can’t help but want to save her anyway.

I guess we’re about to find out if there’s a hero buried … beneath these scars.

My Opinion

I really enjoyed this book. I received this awhile ago via NetGalley. However, I wasn't sure it could be as a standalone so I put off reading it. The others have been on my wish list and after--finally--reading the first two I thought I had enough information about the characters to read this without book 3 (which hopefully I'll get at a later date).

Also, I read book 3 and 4 out of order partly because I was more interested in Lucas than Lord. He played a bigger part in Beneath This Ink and I was intrigued to see how his life would develop. It's safe to say it didn't disappoint. I liked how he won me over. He was an asshole in book two, but slowly throughout this read I got to see his softer side. He may have hidden it beneath arrogance and denied it at times, but around Yve it was obvious.

Similarly, I liked Yve's strength. She was a respectable character with smarts and a good head on her shoulder. I liked how she refused to play the victim and even when she was scared she didn't ask for help. It might have seemed stupid, but I liked watching Lucas have to fight for her.

As for the story it held my attention well. A few things were predictable, but overall it was an engaging read. I didn't fully understand everything Lucas did with his business at the end, but that's my only qualm.

In general it was another great read. I'll definitely be going back to read book 3 and can't wait for more.
