Title- Scarred by You
Author- Laura Carter
My Rating- 4.5 Stars
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.
This was a great story from Laura Carter. It is the first book I have read by Laura but it won't be the last as I really enjoyed reading this one.
The story is about Dayna and Clarke. They had an affair a few years ago and now they are both business rivals. Clarke has just called his wedding off and Dayna and Clarke are both thrown back together. Neither really got over the spilt all them years ago but can rival be lovers and can Dayna trust Clarke not to break her heart again.
This was great read and it even had an underline touch of suspense as well. The chemistry and sexual tension between Dayna and Clarke was hot. It's told duel POV which I love and I think it is so much easier to get to know the characters in the book. Clarke I instantly liked and I loved how protective of Dayna he was. It took me a while to warm up to Dayna but she too turned out to be a strong female character who was only trying to protect her heart. The book is very well written and has a great pace. It has me hooked pretty much from the beginning and on the edge of seat with elements of suspense and danger that were thrown in. There are lots of twists and turns and I felt that it was good original plot.
Overall a great read with some angst, sexual chemistry, danger, suspense and overall a second chance of romance story that I would highly recommend. I'll also be checking out Laura's other books.
