Book Review+Book Blitz: Shadows of Scars and Sorrow (#2 Sorrow Series) by Mary E. Palmerin

Title: Shadows of Scars and Sorrow (#1 Sorrow Series)
Author: Mary E. Palmerin
Genre: New Adult



Everett Brown has secrets. Secrets that Lyla has been waiting for him to tell her for months. He has successfully evaded them, but Lyla is becoming impatient.

With the vicious attack of his beloved still fresh in his mind along with the painful loss he feels, his emotions play a battle against one another, testing his strength and his ability to hold himself together.

Will the secrets that he keeps jeopardize his relationship to the woman who has his heart? Or will he learn to cope with memories that resurface with a vengeance and move on to the next phase of his life… marriage.

In this second novel of this beautifully tragic series, Everett Brown will face the family he thought he knew, a past he tries so desperately to disassociate himself from, and the potential for his life to be turned upside down again. But is he strong enough to make it through another nightmare?

With Michael Thomas and Davis Moore still free, justice has yet to be served. In this whirlwind contemporary erotic romance novel, this young couple’s relationship will be tested with several wicked curveballs and twists that even they aren’t prepared for.

**Graphic content, not suitable for readers under the age of eighteen**

Book Review

Find this Review at Taryn Lee's Book Blog

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Just a note, this is the third book in The Sorrow Series. This is not a standalone so don't even think about reading this without reading the other two.

This book is mostly Everett Brown's point of view. We see a few scenes that are in the third person, but it's mostly Everett. Everett is so in love with Lyla Harper. And he deserves to be. But he's got to overcome some deep troubling issues he has. This novel shows us more about Everett's step father and his cruelty.

Like the first book, we see a lot of physical and mental pain. But we see our hero and heroine not letting the past get them down, trying to live every day like it's the last, and just loving each other. This story does end on another major cliffy, which I was super bummed about because I NEED to know what's going to happen!

Overall, I'm giving this story 4 STARS out of 5 STARS. I think it's a compelling story, and this book really shows us how many different pieces there are to this puzzle. Everyone plays a part in this game and when that buzzer starts all hell is about to break loose. Truly a story worth sharing.
