Yea, so I lied when I said I was just starting to write my review yesterday, I didnt even try - before you call the firing squad to come shoot me, I have a good reason

Honestly, I just didnt know where to start, so Im going to start with the background and events in the book, then I will regale you all with my seriously unwanted opinions.


Right so in the previous book, it ends with her thinking Luke is dead and she faints....Obviously, Luke

I bought this book (the sequel to Scarred) because Scarred ended on a cliffhanger and I can't stand not knowing the outcome but the truth is I wish I hadn't wasted £2 and two hours of my life. I found the story got incredibly messy and almost incestuous which is a real shame as the first half of Scarred showed real potential. Scarred and Healed should have been one book rather than two relatively short ones and the author should have concentrated on one or two story lines rather than trying to i ...more

I should have just stopped after reading Scarred because Healed did not make Bryce's betrayal of Lexi any better. It actually made it worse! I know, how can that be?

After the finding out about Bryce's betrayal, Lexi (view spoiler)
Ugh! If I thought that 'Scarred' was juvenile, this one took the cake! Drama, drama, drama! Fickle emotions, bizarre psychic readings, death, secrets. As if that wasn't enough, the mayor seems to be seeding his very own army in this small town!

Back and forth, back and forth. Bryce, Lexi, Luke and Anna switched partners too many times to keep track of. It was like a junior version of 'Wife Swap'!

Immature. Melodramatic. Damn irritating! No, no, no, no, no, no. This was just bad. The best thing I

Firstly I would like to thank J for allowing me the pleasure of reading "Healed" before it was out. It was simply amazing and everything I could hope it would be. There were times I wanted to yell, scream and throw my Kindle...In fact... I did ;-) haha. You will see why when you read, I must urge you read the whole thing ;-) Everything happens for a reason.
Now onto some key points I loved and made me sad about this book and also some of my fa

I'm about to go on a massive rant...(INCLUDES SPOILERS)

Ok, so I was extremely excited about reading this book after the first one. The first book is pretty much based around Bryce and Lexi, who I ultimately wanted to end up together considering they're the main characters who love eachother. But no, in the second book she ends up with her best friend Luke. I am all for a best-friend-turn-lover plot line, but don't make us fall in love with the two previous characters in one book, to only flip it

Okay- this book was just weird. The whole first chapter is just bizarre to me.


Okay, why would the Mayor get called for a fatal accident in town?! No one notifies the mayor unless it's his family. In which case he'd know that.

Also, many parts of this story were unbelievable... Adoption is super hard, how would some 24 year old kid with no job or house be able to adopt?! Nope. And how can you be so in love one second with a person and then decide the next day it was never really lo

I don't get this series. Sure the partnering had the potential to be cute (love it when best friends fall in love) but for some reason in this book it just did not make sense. Anna and Bryce.. just felt random to me like the whole, they both need a happy ending so why don't we just put them together. I just can not see how Bryce even cared for her when he de-virginised her in the first place, and then all of a sudden is in love with her after talking to her a couple of times. It just see

I knew it was going to be bad, I just didn't realize how bad it could get. The feelings I have for Lexi is hate. She is a self-centered fickle brat who is playing two guys. Luke is pathetically waiting for Lexi to chose him. Bryce is just a f'ed up as Lexi. and Anna is also pathetic wallpaper. Too many characters, to much drama, not a clear romance. Since when is sex all the sudden a romance. and girls don't stay virgins into their 20's to just give it up on one date. smh ...more

I read the first book Scarred in a day. Right when i finished the first one i went and bought the second one because the first one ended on a cliff hanger. This by far was one of the most agravating books i've ever read. in the first book its so good Lexi and Bryce are together and are happy. Until Lexi's friend Anna comes and screws Bryce and then things go down hill from there. S*** hits the fan.
Anna then believes that her and Bryce are in love and that they are dating but Br

We start Healed as Scarred left off with Bryce and Lexi being told that there had been an accident! where Lexi thinks that the accident involves Luke, they dash to the hospital, and its here we find Luke visiting a sweet little girl, but all the while Lexi thinks she has lost her best friend. She is beside herself.

We sadly learn that its Bryce's mom who is the fatality in the accident, causing Bryce heartache, its also a time for reflection, Bryce finally comes clean with Lexi about Anna, and al

Wasn't too thrilled with this series. Really couldn't connect with the characters. I kind of feel as if this book was thrown together. The only character I probably liked was Luke. Lexi seemed just as crazy as her mother...I didn't like Anna at all. I pictured her as the funny looking girl who played Kristin Bell's coworker/friend in that movie When in Rome. Having the little girl Shelby calling Bryce, Papa Bryce. Really? I think the author should have mentioned that Eddie was gay in the first b ...more

1.5 stars

I was really disappointed with this story.

I mainly only read it due to the way the last book ended but really wish i hadn't wasted my time even though this was more like a short novella.

The is a decent story underneath, however the writing really brings it down. The feelings do not feel real, sometimes their conversations are to advanced for people of their age and the romance scenes.... God where do i start.

The romance scenes leave a lot to be desired. At times i was crying out REALLY

I liked this one a little more than Scarred. i won't write a long review because there isn't too much to say.

The story did get to be like a Love Musical Chairs, everyone move around one space and stick with the partner. Add a bunch of Chinese whispers that everyone's involved with but no one tells the right person, only the wrong person. And concocted a few meaningful storybook metaphors to fill it out.

All the key characters grew up and had a new outlook on life in about...two weeks. But the Epi

The only reason I read this book was bc Scarred left off with a little bit of a cliffie. This book was a little better than the previous but not by much. I was completely confused as to how fast everything was moving. Most of the characters were so immature I would slap them if they were real people. I'm sort of happy with the end but all in all nothing spectacular happened. Lexi with her fairytale dreams just really pissed me off. You're 22 woman! Grow the hell up!!!!

Maybe more like 2.5 stars?

Three stars is probably a bit generous, but all things considered, I did enjoy this two book series. The story itself was decent enough to draw me in. But the characters themselves are ridiculously immature and act like they're all13 (they're 22-23). Plus, there are a fair amount of typos and a couple confusing continuity issues. I think a strong-handed editor could have helped shape this into a five star romance, instead of leaving it the mediocre teen drama it is.

This book was ridiculous. It's the weirdest romance I've ever read and made NO sense. Seriously. I won't even put a spoilers thing because I didn't care about any of it.


WHY NOT JUST MAKE THE DAMN BOOK ABOUT LEXI AND LUKE?! For the love of Batman himself, WHY. Seriously, it was so STUPID. I felt TERRIBLE for Bryce. None of it made sense. This was a stupid book.

Spoilage ahead!!!!!!
Are you friggin serious right now? Is everyone related? And anna should not have a HEA especially with him after what she did. I can believe she is even still around. Luke is the only good thing about this whole series. Just no. The whole series was like watching an upside down circus in a foreign language through scuba goggles.

The book was written very immature, almost as if it had been written by a freshman in high school. There were grammatical errors, incomplete ideas, and a mess of confusion. I loved Rhett and found it well written and laid out but this book was a Hugh struggle for me to finish.

I found the novel a little bit boring. I didn't suspect she would get with Luke but at the same time, I'm happy she did. However the whole novel really laid back and I didn't think it was very creative. The way the author wrote Lexi at the start made me think she had some serious mental problems. ...more

That's all I can say about this book. I hate giving bad reviews - but there was no redemption for this book. Or the series. Healed continues in the same half hearted, non-refined manner that Scarred ended. The editing is as shaby. The character development as abysmal and unsatisfactory. Also, the language usage for 20-something year olds?? It doesn't fit - at all. The writer should consider the audience and day and age we live in. I'm older than the characters and I don't even speak like that

I only finished this to see what happened.the audible narrator was terrible. The Male lead was a war veteran whose pain was real but the narrator's teenaged girl's voice ruined all the painful moments. Made them seem like trivial and passing moments. Tho, perhaps partial blame should be on the writing. The main character is the most self-absorbed. Selfish character. But some characters start out that way and are redeemed in the end. The storyline had such potential for a friends to lovers plot. ...more

Need to read. It's the second book to scarred and it changes everything you thought you might know. Bryce's mom passes away in a terrible accident with some secrets of her own. Lexi is confused for who she truly loves. Until a psychic tells her to follow her heart. Great series. Wish more books would come of this. One can only hope. ...more
