Oh, I loved One Hundred & Thirty-Six Scars. There was something in Beast's and Meadow's story that called to me. Amo Jones is one helluva storyteller.

Meadow and Beast are both robbed of their childhood. Meadow's innocent was stolen by someone who should have treasured and protected her. Beast knows no life outside The Army but still his only goal is to escape. The Army is no family, Beast is nothing but a number, trained to be a emotionless killing machine.

Eventually Beast manages to escape with his best friend and his path crosses with Meadow's. He saves her and the he disappears. Years go by but she never stops thinking about him. There simply is no other man for her.

Seven years later Beast and Meadow meet again and there's no denying the attraction. I loved the dynamics between them. They struggle together, fighting against the inevitable. Their relationship is a mixture of dysfunction, passion and salvation. Beast helps Meadow to become whole again, to become strong on her own. And while doing that, Meadow succees in breaking his tough exterior, to make him feel. That's something he thought he was incabaple of doing.

One Hundred & Thirty-Six Scars is a rough, somewhat twisted and violent book. It's also unconvetional love story of two people who have ghosts of their past breathing down on their necks. There are motorcycles, tattooed men, blazing guns and brotherhood. This is about awakening into realisation that your past doesn't define your future.

I loved Amo's world building, it is definitely intriguing. The story is packed with interesting characters and thrilling events. There is darkness to it but it's not what defines this book.
