She clutches at control to cover her flaws.
He wants to strip her bare because she’s beautiful.

Selina Moss hides a secret beneath her controlled happy exterior. Her body is covered in scars and she’s never revealed them to anyone. She’s not beautiful and she doesn’t want pity.

However, it’s her wedding night and husband, Benjamin Moss, is determined to strip down her barriers.

Benjamin is not playing fair, not when he’s deploying breath-stealing seduction as well as mind-melting sex toys. But will he still want her when she bares all?


Review: Scars is the first book in the Passion Shields series by Kiru Taye. I chose this book because after reading the summary I wanted to know what happens next.

Selina has a secret she has not shared with anyone. Her new husband has not even seen it yet. She wears a corset to hide what she does not want anyone to see. Selina cannot see beyond the scars to see the beauty that others see when they see her.

Benjamin is a strong and sweet man wrapped up in one. He wants to see behind the walls Selina has constructed.

The chemistry between Benjamin and Selina is blistering hot. The sex scene was hot and spicy. I loved that Benjamin was not bothered by Selina scars and more by her attitude about them.

My first grumble is that the story was so short. I would have found the story more realistic if it was longer. It takes a while to get over the scars. In addition, there seems to be a back-story that I was missing as to how Selina and Benjamin together. Overall, this was an enjoyable quick read. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series
