Title:  Mending Scars (The Scars of Us #2)
Author:  Nikki Narvaez
Publication Date:  November 2014

Plot:  Even though Kaleb is out of Kaiya's life, the scars he left behind remain a constant reminder of the pain he subjected her to for most of her life. Still tormented by those old demons, and plagued by the events of that traumatic night, Kaiya has more to deal with as she moves forward with Ryker.

Ryker's past continues to haunt him when something unexpected flips his and Kaiya's lives upside down. Neither are prepared for what's to come.

What happens when the past refuses to stay buried?

Will their love continue to be enough to overcome the obstacles they'll face, or are their scars too severe?

 My Review 

☆ I received an ARC via Enticing Journey Book PR in exchange for an honest review. Thank you! ☆

"It’s amazing how scars can still affect you long after they’re inflicted….Scars he left continued to resound in the depths of my soul, tormenting me and overshadowing the happiness that Ryker brought me.”

Mending Scars follow ups right after the events that took place in The Scars of Us.

With everything in tatters. Guilt and remorse consuming. And the hope for salvation slowly fleeting away...

Kaiya, Ryker, and Kamden are still haunted by the tragic aftermath of the death of Kaleb.

Trying to pick up the pieces, all three of them try to move on with their lives, through various increments and methods-- but, Kaiya knows that the cut it's left in their hearts is much deeper than they let on.

♫ “Band-Aids don’t fix bullet holes.” ♫-Taylor Swift

Heavily concerned and bothered, she begins to worry about how to find a way to save them (particularly Kamden). But, how can she save them when she's not even sure how to save herself?

“I needed to save him, to salvage and mend the fragments that were left of him, but how could I when I couldn’t even save myself?”

And when danger once again comes lurking and starts targeting Kaiya…all bets are off to what this new insidious presence has in store for our three heroines!

After all, some things in the past, just don’t stay forgotten…

Will Kaiya and Ryker ever achieve their HEA? Will Kamden ever come to terms with what he did? Will old scars, past hurts and wrongs ever mend? Or will they continue to fester till they self destruct altogether?

Read and you will find out!

As I entered the bathroom, my eyes went straight to her. Her back was to me as she rinsed her long, dark hair, and water dripped off every inch of her flawless skin. My gaze roamed lower to her sweet ass as I pulled off my muscle shirt and gym shorts.
When I opened the shower door, she turned and gasped, placing a hand over her heart. “Oh my God, Ryker! You scared me!”
Grabbing her hand, I chuckled, “Sorry, baby.” I kissed her palm before pulling her into me, immersing myself in the stream of water and pressing our naked bodies together.
Her hands glided up to my shoulders as I nuzzled into the curve of her neck. Gripping her ass, I nipped at her collarbone while lifting her up. Her legs wrapped around me automatically as I backed her into the tile wall.
Kaiya's fingers knotted in my hair as our mouths crashed together. Her lips parted against mine as my tongue slipped inside, finding hers instantly and tangling together. “Fuck, you taste so goodI've wanted to taste you all night.”
Kaiya moaned in my mouth as my hands roamed over her wet skin before finding her tits. I played with one of her nipples, squeezing and pulling it, making her whimper louder.
“You like that, baby?” I bit her bottom lip before sucking it into my mouth.
“God, yes.” Her legs tightened around my hips, and she ground herself against me.
I pushed my cock harder against her clit, making her cry out again. “You want my dick inside you?”
“Yes! Fuck me now, Ryker,” she urged.
I trailed one of my hands down her stomach between us before grabbing my cock and guiding it to her pussy.
Fuck, she's so wet already.
I teased her, rubbing against her and slipping the tip of my dick inside before pulling it out.
Kaiya bit my lip when I put just the head of my cock in again. I circled the rim of her pussy, causing her to bite down harder and moan. “Ryker,” she breathlessly pleaded as she pulled me closer to her.
I couldn't help myself when she sounded like that—her need and want for me evident in every noise she was making. I thrust myself inside, filling her completely as we both groaned out in pleasure.
The water rained down on us as I hammered Kaiya against the tile. My mouth found her nipple, and I toyed with it with my tongue ring as I continued to pound into her. She gripped my hair as I savored her, sucking her tit as her sweet pussy hugged my dick.
She feels so good … fucking perfect.
Kaiya's nails dug into my head as she arched into me. My hands caressed her soft flesh as I drove deeper inside her. I was already close to coming, and by the look on her face, she was too.
Her eyes were closed as she bit down on that full, bottom lip.
Fuck, she's so sexy.
Our wet skin slapped together as I increased my pace, thrusting harder into her, bringing us both to the brink.
I wanted to taste her as I made her come, capture the sounds of bliss she made because of me. I grabbed her face and crushed her lips with mine, opening her mouth with my tongue and slipping it inside.
Fuck, so good.
After a few more thrusts, Kaiya cried out and her pussy tightened around me. I followed, coming inside her as she trembled against me.
Holding Kaiya up, I pressed kisses along her neck as we caught our breath. “I love you,” I murmured against her skin.
Turning her head, she grazed her lips against mine. “I love you, too.”
Some of her hair clung to her face as she leaned her head against the wall. I pushed the drenched strands back before kissing her again.
Kaiya's legs had loosened, but as our kiss deepened, she tightened them around me again. My dick started to harden inside her.
Damn, she drives me fucking crazy.
I slowly pumped my cock in and out of her, growling against her lips, “You want more, baby? You want me to fuck you again?”
She sucked my tongue into her mouth. Hard. “Yes, please fuck me,” she loudly moaned.
I smirked and roughly thrust into her, eliciting a gasp of pleasure from her swollen lips. We stayed there in the shower until long after the water ran cold.
