I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a story I've been waiting for. Ms. Rivers has done an excellent job of taking a character who was portrayed as villianious and morphed her into someone the reader roots for.

Mending Scars brings resolution for both Dacia and Preston as well a few others living in Edenton.

I can't wait to find out what's next for the residents of this otherwordly friendly town.

Mending Scars had been a book that I had been waiting for featuring two of the most prominent characters from Edenton – Preston and Dacia. To be honest, I didn’t see them working out because Preston was the fun loving playboy type who didn’t really do long term and we know that he had his heart broken a couple of books back by Amethyst and Jamie. Dacia was the resident psycho b***h who thought she could have any man she desired an

Dacia was a total nut case in the stories leading up to this one, we got a few brief glimpses that maybe there was a decent person hiding inside her in, but then her inner bitch would come out and screw things up again. Preston was moping the last time we saw him because he couldn’t have who wanted because he didn’t want her when he could have her, make sense? I sort of felt like he saw everyone else pairing up and he was upset because he was alone.

So what happens when you put these two togethe

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

This is the fifth in a series, and only if you have read the previous books will you realise how huge this story is. Dacia's behaviour in the past has been beyond belief at times, and yet there have been hints, so this was a very welcome book.

Even though I have read these books over the last year, and read many hundreds in between, I can slot straight back into Edenton as if I never left. That is extremely rare in my exper

I have been reading this series from the beginning, and I will say this....
Every book I read gets better and better!
Dacia has always been the "bad" girl and the one people avoid like the plaque.
Now it's her turn to find a piece of happiness.

Preston is a mage and he knows that she is meant for him. He just has to convince her.

Another awesome Others of Edenton. This booked flowed seamlessly from the last one in the series. This series is so the author just sucks you right into their lives. I love it. If you can't tell I love this series and author. Preston and Dacia need each other. I loved how their friends and family helped them with her father. There were a lot of secrets that needed to come out and I was glad when they did. A few of the words made me laugh out loud,twat knocker and douche nozzle (two awesome words ...more

Sometimes words aren't enough for Dacia so Preston has to let his body do the talking, "that's not a problem for me. I want you, not what you are." He shifted his hips, pressing his straining length against her, proving he wanted her again." Preston is a man and he can only take so much of Dacia tempting him, "you being nude in front of me is a recipe for a smoking time." He's the type of man you want waking up beside you he's caring and likes to take care of his woman, "doesn't make it any easi ...more

In the ever changing landscape that is Endton there are characters you love to hate, or at least their were characters like that for me. Ms. Rivers brings one of them to the forefront. Danica! And what a story she has. I literally use to seeth that she always got away with things in the past how they were over looked or excused away.

Winning Dacia will be a uphill battle for Preston but he’s prepared to do what it takes hopefully before Dacia’s father can drive them apart…permanently in this thrilling paranormal romance. I have to say that this series just keeps getting better and better with every story and this one had me completely enthralled from beginning to end. And wow, I love the vivid image of Dacia’s tattoo that the author provided but hey I want to know what Preston decided on…I know he had to get one.

It moved along at a wonderful pace from beginning to end, has amazing characters that you will fall in love with and a story that will keep you interested and entertained from the very beginning all the way to the end. This is a must read, there is no doubt about it.

This is the fifth book in the Others of Edenton series. I really enjoyed it!

Dacia is a character that has grown through this series. In 'In Too Deep' she came across as needy, always chasing after men like Brody or Hayden, which made me feel sorry for her. However, as the story arc has progressed, I have found I like her a lot more. Her attitude has mellowed and she is not as catty towards the other characters. She is attracted to Preston but has been deeply scarred emotionally by her father, Re

Ever since the first time I read a book by Brandy L. Rivers, I fell in love with her writing. The stories have always had a smooth flow that’s allowed me to fully connect with the plot line and all the characters. I’ve always been fully intrigued by the developments made throughout her books and honestly, I’ve never felt “let down”. Brandy quickly became one of my favorite authors and it’s safe to say that I will continue to read anything she writes, regardless of the genre – because yes, she no ...more

I have been waiting for this book. I didn't really know it at the time, but I was waiting for it. Each novel that brandy releases I fall in love with. She constantly draws me in and subsequently blows me away with her writing and characters. This is another novel that you don't want to miss in this fantastic PNR series.

While reading Brandy L Rivers’ newest Others of Edenton story, I openly admitted to her that I had never really liked either of the main characters and was hesitant to believe that she could make me care about them. But, to quote myself in a conversation with Brandy, “I'm only 41% through but absolutely love Preston and Dacia ... I was on the fence about Preston for a while but you've really made him into someone pretty awesome.”

It takes a talented writer to be able to completely turn around a r

In the interest of full disclosure, I received an ARC for a review. But more importantly, I'm a huge Brandy L Rivers fan. I've read all her books (even her contemporary romance, Heart on Fire, which I highly recommend) and have been waiting for Preston to get his own book since about the 3rd book in the series though you could read this as a standalone. And yes, I read this book in one sitting. Husband, kids, house fire couldn't have pried me off my couch for anything. It was so worth it. I love ...more

The Others of Edenton will always have a special place in my heart and their antics and adventures never fail to entertain me. From the very beginning Dacia has been a troublesome character but she has secrets that cause her to behave in the most reprehensible of ways. Of one thing you can be sure with Dacia around t ...more

Mending Scars is Preston & Dacia’s story. Anyone who has read the series from the beginning knows that Dacia has some issues. She was definitely not one of my favorites early on but my opinion has changed drastically over the last few books.

Dacia has had a pretty tough life. Her father, Remus, is on the run from the Silver Council for some really atrocious crimes. He has treated Dacia so badly that she has come to believe that this is how all men will treat her, that she is not worthy of being p

Oh my.... I am so happy Preston finally had his story, it was looonnnggg over due. Right??

He was quirky in the other books but not so much this one, he had something to prove, and was not going to give up until it was validated. But ah it had to be validated by none other than Dacia.

Her father is an evil man and will do anything to seek revenge and destroy his daughter, never mind it's his blood. But we already known this right? Selling her to someone so he can have more power, after all isn't

From the moment Dacia appeared in the first book of this series, I was rooting for her. Sure, most would see her as a "bad guy" who needed to be dealt with, but she slowly progressed and grew in each installment. I couldn't wait for her to finally have a bit of happiness for herself. And then came Preston. These two were made for each other and just don't know it! Damaged, but not quite broken Dacia and lonely, confused Preston.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review through Lovers of Paranormal.

This is Preston and Dacia's story, Book 5 of The Others of Edenton series. They've both been looking for someone to love them while watching all of their friends find that special someone. Preston is simply a good guy with a great sense of humour who tends to fall for the nice but not interested in a commitment girl. Dacia is someone everyone tends to hate because she's always going after someone else's

Brandy Rivers never fails to provide outstanding stories and Mending Scars is awesome. I love the fact that some of my favorite characters returned. The characters are great, both the good and the absolutely evil.

I enjoyed watching Dacis gradually change into the person she was finally to become. She had so many personal demons that she had to confront and that wasn't easy for her. Preston has always been one of my favorite characters and he was especially wonderful in this book. His personal l

Dacia has always been this bratty woman who I have disliked, since book one. Very true to life, her trauma's have really shaped her into the woman that she has been pretending to be and this book brings her back into my good graces.

Dacia has always been looked upon as a spoiled child and for good reason; all she ever thought about was herself and how to get what she wanted never of others. Slowly she is starting to change but even with these changes of heart she cannot seem to overcome the fear that she is unlovable and who can blame her? Preston has been a player for a very long time. Never settling down and never really finding someone who peaks his interest for more than one night. Things change for him when he starts t ...more

Dacia has been seen as a bitch in the previous books of this series. That is exactly the way she's wanted it. She has never let a man close to her well guarded heart due to her father, Remus. The men she had in her past were never the real thing, even when she wanted them to be.
Preston has secrets and a heart full of love. Waiting for the right woman seems to be a never ending journey for him.
