Review :

Hidden Scars (Hidden Scars #1) by Amanda K. Byrne is a nice change from the usual romance novels I read lately. The characters are really well developed and show enough depth for me as a reader to relate to them, (which is a very important fact for me personally).

For me reading a good book means that I want to feel what the protagonists feel. Sara’s character was I nice enough female lead but it was Taylor that intrigued me the most. His quiet stealthy way is so different from anything I cam across that he was really surprising.
Which brings me also to my only problem with this storyline. The beginning of the novel – there in that hotel – was setting the mood. The reader was promised a certain deep dark edge to Taylor. And the end also was true to that promise but along the journey I was missing out a little on that promise.
In some scene Taylor could have been mistaken for any other generic guy, when I felt so sure in the beginning that there had to be much more too him. But that is only my absolute personal issue – !!!
The story itself is really good and I can only recommend it to you. If you think that blurb might appeal to you – you will not be disappointed by the story. I hope that will soon be a release of the next book as I can definitively see a future for this storyline as a series.
