Review ~ Scarred by You by Laura Carter

Scarred by You
eARC received from the author in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: October 24th 2016

Publisher: Self-published

Their past will become their future. Their scars will be reopened.

Clark Layton has the world at his feet. He is the CEO of one of the largest oil companies in the world and he has a fiancée most men would kill for. Then why, the night before his wedding, is he still thinking about everything he lost when he walked out on Dayna Cross?

Dayna didn’t intend to take the helm of Subsea Petroleum. But events beyond her control left her no choice. And she can handle it, mostly. She can juggle the long hours, the chauvinistic men, and a broken heart. What she can’t deal with is Clark Layton swanning back into her life and threatening to break down her walls.

They are rival CEOs and they are in a dogfight for a lucrative new pipeline. But as truths of their past begin to surface, business won’t be the biggest battle they enter into.

My Opinion

This is the first book I've read by Laura Carter. Having met her at a signing earlier this year she's been on my tbr pile for awhile so when I saw Scarred By You I was intrigued and had to read it. Considering it's a standalone it seemed like the perfect place to start.

This book offered something different. While it deals with CEOs, both Clark and Dayna are in the oil industry. I've not seen this before and I thought it gave the book a uniqueness and interesting angle. The plot surrounding the oil companies was interesting and kept me intrigued as it's corrupt and dirty. 

As for the relationship, I did think there was chemistry. The characters are put through their paces in this book and I enjoyed watching their journey play out. I believed in Clark's emotions, but I was glad Dayna didn't let him walk all over her.

I did wish there was a slight nod to the other characters at the end just to wrap things up a little more. Dayna's revenge fizzled out a little and I didn't understand why. However that's only minor--literally wanted a sentence here or there.

Overall this was a book that was different to what I've read before. It was well written and I thought it a great introduction to this author.
