Falling in love is easy.
Falling out of love is the hardest thing in the world.
And Elin and Ty Whitt are terrible at it.
The first time the local basketball star smiled at Elin, she was a goner. It was just so damn easy to fall for the dark-haired hometown hero with his charming smile and strong, athletic build.
Thousands of sleepy smiles, aimless drives down country roads, and squeaks of the backdoor after a swing shift later, reality hits. And it hits hard. Falling in love was definitely the easy part. Watching it break apart was impossible.
Through the tears, the second-guesses, the memories of a life built together, the world keeps spinning. With each turn comes clarity and hope—sometimes in the form of a pair of muddy boots by the back door or from the words of a wise friend.
When Ty shows back up with a new found determination to put his family back together, Elin's torn between the fights of the past and the possibility of a new start. This is the man that holds her heart, the man she loves beyond anything else. But this is also the one person in the world that can cause her the most pain.
Life’s not always easy. Love’s not for the faint of heart. But with life comes lessons and Ty and Elin have the scars to prove it. But it's their love written in those scars that will hold them together … or break them apart.
5 Star Review by Ashley
Be still my heart. Adriana Locke you got me so good with Written in the Scars. There was something so raw and real about the story that unfolded within the pages of this book that I was transported into that world. I felt the pain, the hope, the fear, the love...
Elin and Ty were a match made in the stars from the moment they met. Their love grew as they did from teenage wistfulness into adulthood. And along with that came the real problems that everyone faces as they grow up. But what never changed was how much they loved each other, even at their lowest, even with all the pain they loved hard. With each page I read of Ty and Elin's story, I felt the vice that was squeezing my chest lessen. Until that part. Trust me, you'll know when you get there. My eyes were watery and my heart was racing while trying not to break all over again. How much more could this circle of friends endure?
Written in the Scars is a love story in its purest form. Whether it was the love between husband and wife, brother and sister or best friends you felt that connection in every word on every page. And my goodness, that ending, bittersweet and such a perfect conclusion to this emotional roller coaster.
