“We’re strong. We’ll survive this. We can survive anything.” – Ryan.

What an amazing ending to such a wonderful story!

Okay, so this story started off where Flawed and Damaged left off. I was hooked the moment I started reading the book. See? it felt so different with this one. I have no dull moments. In fact I savored every lines because this is just how good the book is. Where Flawed and Damaged gave me a conflicting emotion this book gave me a beautiful roller coast

How far would you go to protect the one you love? Would you lie? Would hide the truth?

Begins where book one Flawed and Damaged left off (I highly recommend you read that first) ..

In book two, we get a glimpse into the past of Liz. We learn more about her parents and who her father is. Ryan the ever attentive fiance, struggles with information about her past. He doesn’t want to see her hurt, he loves her so much it’s palpable. Now she wants to surprise him when he returns to Moscow from a busine

"Let me chase away all your fears about us. Let me kiss all the scars I left on your heart."

Having met under dubious circumstances in an airport in Moscow in Flawed and Damaged, Book One in the series, their love story is one involving much heart break and uncertainty. Continuing in Fears and Scars is their faltering romance and their journey to accept themselves, flaws and all. Liz relocated to Moscow, five years ago, to live with her Grandma after a tragic aeroplane accident made her an orphan
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

When I heard we were getting a second book about Ryan and Liz, I was ecstatic! These two have been through so much and to be able to see what happened after their happily ever after was a hope of mine. As their past shows, they’ve never had it easy, but their love never wavered. Can their love survive this?

Ryan and Liz are now settled as an engaged couple. Like others, they face their ups and downs trying to figure out their future. But secrets

Oh my! What an amazing story! You know how most romance stories usually end with an engagement or wedding and...Bingo!... instant happily ever after? Well, Ryan & Liz's story is anything but instant happiness. Ryan has a tendency to make decisions secretly for Liz all in the interest of protecting her happiness. While noble intentions, when the secret surfaces, Liz sees it as a lie that erodes her trust in him. The first couple of times

‘Fears and Scars’ by Emily Krat started off right where ‘Flawed and Damaged’ left off and this book was just as good, if not better, than book one! I couldn’t put it down! I carried my Kindle with me everywhere I went just so I could read it at every opportunity I had. There is minimal violence and some explicit sex scenes to keep that heart pumping.

Once again, just like book one, the reader experiences a roller coaster of emotions from happiness to frustration to even laughter. Elizabeth, who h

Firstly I would like to give a HUGE thanks to the lovely Emily for kindly providing me with a copy of "Fears and Scars" to read and review.

I can't remember how many times my heart broke whilst reading this, I also think I've over emotional because I practically cried through the whole thing...I do have the flu so I blame this for being hormonal and tanked up on medication to make me feel this way :D haha

I loved how the story picked up where it left off, they both have an undeniable connection,

I've been waiting for this book for so long, that I had forgotten about it - until the review opportunity popped into my inbox. And I knew I had to read it.

Let me start by telling you that this is not a standalone read. I strongly recommend that you read Flawed & Damaged first. This book picks up right where that one left off. I will also say, right off the bat, the narrative and dialogue in this book is more accomplished than the previous book. For me, there was an organic flow to the story

I was thrilled we were getting more Ryan and Liz!!

If you've not read book 1, that's okay..but I'd recommend you do so- so you have more understanding and insight about these fabulous characters.

In this installment, things are looking good... but someone decides to open their mouth where it doesn't belong. And it causes havoc on this happy couple. You will love and hate what happens afterward. There are secrets and more secrets.... and what happens when one makes a decision without you-- can you

I feel like I been waiting a lifetime for this book. As much as I wanted to drop kick Ryan in Flawed & Damaged I loved their love. I was so happy when I found out their story was continuing. I will tell you to read Flawed & Damaged first!!

We pick up where we left off. Ryan and Liz are engaged and so happily in love they can't see straight. Liz is finally prepared to set a wedding date. Ryan is still madly in love with Liz but he's been keeping a huge secret

3 stars I really enjoyed Liz and Ryan’s story in Flawed and Damaged but I had to refresh my memory…after I brushed up I was worried that the chemistry I had felt in the first installment wouldn’t be as magical this time around, but I felt the love right away between Liz and Ryan. phew.

Wow don't even know where to start, I have to say that when the author Emily ask me if I would like to read this book I agree too. I knew that I had to re-read the first one, and when I started reading the first book it reminded me why I felt so in love with the book.

While I really enjoyed book 1, I have to say that I loved book 2 even more. The emotion was deeper, there were more twists and turns, and it was just fantastic.

In Fears and Scars we picked right back up where book 1 left off. We have the wonderful leading characters Elizabeth and Ryan who are now engaged and ready to start planning for their future. But almost immediately secrets start coming out and it begins to tear the couple apart. As the story continues I honestly loved Ryan e

I really enjoyed the first book Flawed and Damaged, so when I was asked for an honest review of Fear and Scars, I jumped on it.

Liz and Ryan have come a long way in life to be able to commit to each other. We start this story with them looking towards their life together, figuring out the little pet peeves of their mates, and suddenly they are faced with lies and what could be considered betrayals.

This is book two in the Damaged Hearts Duet by Emily Krat.

It is 5 months since Liz and Ryan became engaged and thought they had achieved their richly deserved happily ever after. Both are in their element and are looking forward to a future together. Their connection is as strong as ever and they are basking in the happiness that each thought they never would find or deserve.

However Ryan is still hiding a secret from the love of his life’s past and has no idea how to tell her. His a

The second book from Emily Krat was one I have been eagerly anticipating since finishing Flawed and Damaged. Having chased the amazing Emily for her latest instalment I was so excited to delve in.

The continuation of Ryan and Liz's relationship is one of happiness, love and sexual chemistry...but Ryan, who's love knows no bounds doesn't realise that his actions although pure of heart will end up pushing the one woman he loves away.

I have to admit when I realised there was a second book in this series I was a little disappointed, I thought Liz and Ryan's story could have been tied up in one.

Although I struggled in the beginning of this story I have to say in the end it drew me in completely and kept me hooked until the last page.

The first half of this book I struggled with, I found Liz completely selfish and self absorbed I get she had no concern for Ryan's feelings at times and if the shoe had been on the other f

This is the second book in the Damaged Hearts Duet and I did not read the first book. This book can be read as a stand-alone and I didn't feel like I was behind in anything, although I now really want to read the first one and see how Elizabeth Williams and Ryan Price meet.

I really enjoyed this book. I found the character of Elizabeth so strong from what she has gone through in the past and so determined not to put up with anything, no matter how much it broke her heart. I loved her friendship w
