Written in the Scars by Adriana Locke Blog Tour
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.
As soon as the call is ended, my finger is in his chest. “You lied to me!”
“Calm down,” he scoffs, clearly entertained by my reaction.
“I’m not calming down! She called you. The girl that you didn’t do anything with.”
I start to march to the door, but his arm is around my waist, dragging me into his arms. “Will you stop acting like this?” he laughs. “What’s wrong with you?”
My arms pinned to my sides, I struggle to break free. “You are what’s wrong with me.”
“Tell you what,” he says, resting his head on the top of my head. “Let’s make a deal.”
“I don’t deal with liars.”
“I don’t normally deal with lunatics, either, but I’m making an exception tonight, so I guess you can too.”
The complete lack of fear or frustration in his voice calms me a little. I stop fighting to pull away.
“Let’s go in and have dinner with our friends. Then we can go to bed and I will tell you everything you want to know about her.” He plants a kiss to the back of my head. “And if you’re a good girl, I’ll let you have my cock after we’re done talking.”
“I doubt I’ll want it,” I sigh, trying to not succumb to him.
“There you go, lying again,” he laughs. Swatting me on my ass towards the house, I reach for his hand. He laces our fingers together and we head inside.

RATING: 5 STARS
So I'm pretty sure this is my first time reading a book by this author. I was beyond blown away! There is a realness to this book. She has a way of drawing you into the story and making you feel everything the characters do. Although I will admit that normally my emotions would be all over the place especially reading the end but I think I'm broken. There was no tears running down my face but I did feel bad for everyone. I can't imagine losing someone so close to you.
Tyler and Elin had beautiful relationship, madly in love and was ready to take on the world. But soon they find themselves struggling to keep going. They have to fight for their marriage. I so enjoyed this book and was happy to see two towns I have visited to many times in my life mentioned in a book. I'd highly recommend this book to everyone! Very well written with real characters you can relate to and a love no one can deny.

Trails, love, heartache, pain, devotion, second chances this book has it all. The writing in this book was have you on the edge and till the end it will have your heart beating fast. This book definitely has a lot of emotions throughout the book that make you feel for the characters and their struggle to find their way back to each other while finding themselves in the process makes a great story. Elain and Ty love story is just that it is a second chance love story that shows that loving someone doesn’t have to be scary, it doesn’t mean losing yourself in them it’s just loving them and them bringing out the best in you and them, It’s about feeling complete with your soul mate.
This was a very well written story with a great plot and great characters. I loved this story very much and while it might be a work of fiction its gives you a little insight into love and relationships and how sometimes love deserve fighting for. I would definitely recommend this book because it is such a great book about love and its trails.
