    Two Imperfect Men Fight to be Perfect Together.

    ** Provided by Author via Promoter in Exchange for an Honest Review. ** -- MY THOUGHTS > Judging a Book by it's Cover: A magnetic, beautiful cover that drew me in. Top 5 of the year for me so far! The synopsis is powerful and promises to be a gritty, raw, and emotional ride that felt compelled to read. ** WARNING ** (from inside the front cover) : This book contains material that is intended for a mature, adult audience. It contains graphic language, explicit sexual content, and adult situations. Looking Deeper: Every now and again, you read a book that makes you feel too strongly, makes you think too deeply, makes you experience something as if you'd watched a movie instead of read a book... and changed you in some small or profound way. Today, I finished such a book. This is not a sunshine and roses contemporary romance. It deals, a lot, with darker and deeper issues and emotions. First-person POV from Gil's perspective. My first impression - after only ten percent - is that this story is already richer, fuller and more mature than most m/m romance novels that I have read lately. Gil is still suffering from PTSD after surviving a homemade bomb, planted at his home with fatal intent. His whole life changed at that point and now he finds himself out of his comfort zone when the part-time telecommuting job he's taken needs him to leave his safe haven in Phoenix for training some 1,500 miles away. Keith works within the said company. He's suffered his own battles but is much further in his recovery, mentally, but still suffers quietly from the physical aspects of his injury. He tries to be the positive and light that Gil is missing. Both characters are complex and richly developed. Their initial chemistry was a little skeptical, however as the months pass by, their relationship feels much more developed. There are only a handful of significant secondary characters, but each lends another facet to the story. The dialogue is mature and their interaction feels natural and appropriate, given each one's history. SILVER SCARS has one of the deepest plots (emotionally) I've read to-date; with some mature, serious subject matter with subsequent - often brutalizing - healing processes. Because of that heavy subject matter, it often feels that the plot is dragging when, in fact, the flow is very smooth. Conflicts and hurdles seem never-ending in this book; however, each is met to the best of the character's ability, even when the resolve is flawed. There was absolutely no predictability for me and a few surprises. The conclusion wraps things up quite neatly and nicely. If you are in the mood for a truly heartrending love story between two beautifully imperfect men, I'd highly recommend this one to you. -------------------------------------------------------------- Heat Level: 4.5 ~ Score: 4.6 ~ Stars: 5 ---------------------------------------------------------------
