Title: Written in the Scars
Author: Adriana Locke
Genre: Contemporary Romantic Suspense
Release Date: October 20, 2016
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.

With only two other Adriana Locke titles under my belt, Written in the Scars proves to be another reason that Locke is becoming a go to author for me. Reading both, Wherever it Leads and Sway, Locke proves she can write both heartwarming and swoon-worthy. Written in the Scars is different. It’s pure, raw and so heartbreakingly honest; there isn’t one chapter that doesn’t resonate with readers.
As a reader who has shared similar heartache and disappointment endured by Elin and Ty, Locke’s words hit home. All the pain, all the suffering… the relentless feeling of doubt and failure – the worry that maybe love really isn’t enough; Written in the Stars captures these sentiments effortlessly. Through meticulous detail, Adriana Locke pays attention to the details of a relationship. Exploring both the highs and lows, Elin and Ty paint a perfectly imperfect picture of life.
Written in dual POV’s, Adriana Locke allows readers to be extensively immersed in all the emotions. What will also catch readers off guard is the very important role a secondary character plays in the development of this story; Cord will forever hold a special place in this readers heart. Woven delicately through every chapter Cord McCurry’s advice, presence and influence, is what captures the essence of this gut-wrenchingly beautiful story.
