Oh Janice, Janice, Janice...

This book is a spiral into madness. Janice is the epitome of crazy in this short, deliciously twisted novella from the Marked Series by Elena M. Reyes.

If you are a fan of this series then you have been waiting for the lovely Elena Reyes to allow us a peek into the psychosis of Janice; the ever determined, obsessed, intoxicating and maniacal ex-lover of Talan and supreme threat to Maya his new love. Janice is a ticking time bomb. And in this novel we get a

**Please note you MUST read Marking Him, and Marking Her before you read this or you will have NO idea what is going on.**
If you have already read them, then you already know what a crazy fuck Janice is! She is the girl you love to hate, and finally you get to hear a bit of the story in her POV. Let me tell you, getting inside Janice's head is one hell of a trip. I have yet to experience anything like it before in all the books that I have read in my lifetime. With that being s

Janice's Story
If you haven't read the first two books in this series, Marking Her (Marked Series #1) and Marking Him (Marked Series #2) I would highly recommend that you do do before diving into Scars.
This is a short read, but not lacking because of it. In this book we finally get a look into the crazy that is Janice, the psycho ex of Talan's and very real threat to Maya. When I realized that this story was about Janice I wasn't sure how to feel, having met her in the previous installments I wa

I received an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.

What can I say? Batshit is clearly the new black this season. I loved Marking Her and Marking Him which brought us Talan, Maya and of course Janice. We have only ever had a tiny peek into what she's really like, but never did I expect her to be this crazy!

The woman takes psychotic adds her own unique twist to it and then serves it up while it's all piping hot.

Janice loves Talan, but of course he doesn't feel the same for her and there

This book does have strong language and sexual scenes.

This was another good book by Elena. This book allowed us to see more of the psyche of Janice, the person you come to hate in the mark series. Although the book was a decent book and went along with the Marked Series, it was about a person that I don't like.

Janice thinks she is in love with Talan. She has had to deal with loss of her twin sister and the abandonment of her parent

In Marking Him and Marking Her, the previous books in the Marked series, we loved to hate Janice. I will not spoil the book for you guys, I will stop that comment there.

Elena takes us on a journey into the mind of mentally ill woman, that, at the moment lives in her own reality, one that has put at risk her life and the lives of other people.

Then there is Jaime, a club owner that is attached to a person that uses him to ease her pain, could he be the knight marked with tattoos for Janice. To k

The funny thing is that when I've read about pyshco Janice in the first 2 Marked books, I honestly thought of her, well my image of her was more crack whorish, elevator didn't quite go all the way to the top, type of girl..

We learn that a very traumatic event takes place in her teenage years, were I guess she feels invisible and unlovable until she drops in And ...more

I understand that this is part of series (I did not read Marking Him or Marking Her). I must admit I was lost not knowing the characters - however, the book is like an accident that you can't take your eyes away from. In a good way! Once I started I lost some sleep having to finish it and then having finished I lost some sleep hoping that there aren't but knowing that there are nut jobs in the real world like Janice.

PSA: If you have not read Marking Him or Marking Her you will be utterly lost in more ways than one. One reason is because they are awesome books and another because you won’t understand where Janice came about.
This book had me screaming at my kindle because of how crazy things are going for Janice. She is a little, can we say, loco. I can understand some of the reasoning behind it but still she has lost it. You know her form the first two books as the girl who used to work for Talan and who sh

We first meet Janice in Marking Her and let's be honest the girls is crazy. Throughout the series we saw her dive deeper and deeper a into a scary mental state. Some questioned why she did this and now we are getting those answers. Scars is Janice's story and her point of view on what happened after Talan and Bitty became a couple. When I first end started reading this book I was Janice's biggest enemy. I didn't think there could be anything redeeming about her but then Elena M. Reyes knocked me ...more

Janice Janice Janice. I will admit I was not thrilled when I realized this was going to be about her, but I am glad I read it. It was interesting taking a step into her crazy mind and see all she has been through. I would consider this a quick read, but it did take me a bit to get into the beginning(as I said I wasn't really thrilled it was about her). I look forward to hearing how things turn out with her and if she can get the help she obviously needs. Since it seems she has an entwined histor ...more

This story is about Janice and all of her crazy glorious self.
In the previous books we saw a alot of Janice and her crazy.
Now in Scars, we see who Janice really is and her mind frame.
While I will say I disliked Janices' character in the other books, well this one changed my feelings on her.
Elena did a brilliant job in changing my mind. Poor Janice is a very sick girl and needs alot of help. I felt real

Oh my goodness? Janice, she really is one crazy chick!

While reading Marking Him & Marking Her, I hated Janice. She was on my crap list. After reading Scars, my heart is breaking for her. She needs love so much. I think deep down that is all she really wants. This girl has been through something else (that we do not know all the details to yet, sneaky Elena) but from what I just read, I wanna give her a big ol' crazy girl hug!

FOUR Stars- I received an ARC for an honest review of Scars (Marked, #2.5) by Elena M. Reyes
I thought the timing of this book was perfect, answering questions about Janice's crazy mind and her point of view. It also confirmed how far gone she really was. This is a quick read into Janice's crazy world. It explains a lot and should not be skipped.

Poor Janice. All throughout her story that is all I kept thinking. How much she needed to get help and how completely off her rocker she was along the way. To have no one in her life that would fight for her. My heart really broke for her as I read her story.

I give Scars 4 hearts!

Let me start off by saying, it is without a doubt a necessity to Read Marking Her and Marking Him prior to reading Scars. If it’s been a while since you have read them, I suggest rereading them. It won’t take too long because you will want to refresh who everyone is to understand Scars.

Scars is Book 2.5 in the Marked Series and Janice is the main character. She is one of those psycho crazies that you will never forget, her crazy thoughts and irrational behavior standout. Her typical behavior is

I have battered on about Janice in my previous reviews and the fact that the woman is completely deranged but in this we get not necessarily to understand her reasoning but at least to have an insight into why she is the way she is and it is a messed up story.,
She really is not a well woman.

Scars is part 2.5 of this series and this story gives us a look into the mind of Janice. In the previous 2 books we got to know a bit about her. She's the mean, nasty and probably psychotic person who's obsessed with Talan and has it out for Maya.

But in this story we get more insight into Janice's mind and quite frankly, it's kind of an intense, overwhelming, and kind of scary place. But I'm so very happy we had a chance to see inside. Janice's past is a sad one, but it helps to

So I put off reading this book because I wasn't sure I wanted to get into the mind of Janice. I really hated her in book 1 &2 but I decided with book 3 coming out I really needed to buckle down and do this thing!

Wow, I think part of the reason I didn't want to read this book was because I didn't want to feel sorry for Janice. I didn't want to empathize with her character. I sort of did, but I sort of didn't as well. I think I may have sympathized more if I knew more about her parents and th
