The Scars I Bare by J.L. Berg
Publication Date: March 12th, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Every scar tells a story…
Some are etched on the skin, for the whole world to see.
Others are buried deep, so deep, only the heart can truly find them.
Dean Sutherland was the quintessential guy next door. Strong and dependable, with a heart of gold, he knew exactly where his life was headed. Until one fateful night at sea ripped away everything. Now he’s adrift, a man without a purpose.
Cora Carpenter thought she had the perfect life. A successful career, an affectionate husband and a daughter who adores her. But soon that perfect world is crashing down around her, and she’s in need of a fresh start. Moving to a remote town on the coast of North Carolina seems like the perfect plan. That is until she finds herself face to face with a kindred soul from her past.
Dean and Cora have more in common than either are willing to admit. Both deeply rooted in their pain, they can’t help but find hope in each other’s eyes and passion entwined with every touch. But can two broken hearts make a whole?
Will the scars they’ve bared to one another poison their happily ever after, or can love truly heal all?

Review by Paula:
Well writing this review I’m a crying mess. What a amazing book that makes your heart flutter and soar. Dean has scars from a accident that is holding him back in life. Cora is searching for herself again after a horrible marriage. Faint brings Dean and Cora together once again. I loved all the different characters in this book the author made you feel like you were there family too. Lizzie is such a amazing sweet, energy filled kid that made me laugh so many times with her silliness. Cora’s character hit home for me I was once her and didn’t know how to become myself again. Then Dean that amazing man I loved his journals and how we saw the side of him he tried to keep hidden, but find his strength to help himself finally be happy. Definitely in my top books of 2018 one I’ll never forget 5 deserves more stars!
Meet J. L. Berg:
I’m a California native, who lives in the South – Virginia to be exact. I still prefer sushi to fried chicken, avocados to okra, and I absolutely loathe humidity. I do love watching the seasons change though. My husband and I have been here for over a decade, and I still get giddy like a school girl every time it snows. It’s magical!
I’m married to my high school sweetheart, and we’ve been blessed with two beautiful daughters and two rescue pups I like to call my “coworkers”. I’m obsessed with chocolate, minions, anything Harry Potter and I love to watch re-runs of Friends and Gilmore Girls!
