***Review*** Scarred Love (Sulfur Heights #1) by M.S. Brannon
“I am certain, without any doubt, she was meant to be in my life. We belong to each other. I spent too much of my time consumed with what everyone else thinks of my feelings for Darcie, but the truth is, it was always supposed to be this way.” ~Reggie Evans
Darcie Claiborne spent several years of her young life living with a monster, always fearing what he would do next. Clasping onto her last ounce of hope, Darcie releases a scream. It’s her final attempt to live; to survive the villain of her reality. Sweeping her up in his arms, Darcie’s knight in shining armor rescues her from the hell she’s been living; from the stepfather she’s feared for all those years.
Reggie Evans has been forced to grow up before he’s ready when his mother dies of an overdose, leaving him responsible to raise his younger brothers. One fateful night, Reggie jogs by an old, run down house and discovers a young girl clinging to life as she screams for help.
Three years later, Darcie is healing and always protected by the man who saved her, but now she’s fighting with something she isn’t prepared to face. The growing love for the man who saved her life three years ago, the same man who’s nine years older. All the while, Reggie fights to protect Darcie from the demons of her past and new ones of her present.

Nicole’s Review ~
Oh my goodness this book was absolutely fan-freakin-tastic. I have no clue even where to start with my review it was that good. As many of you who follow my reviews know I am a huge fan of the not so pretty love stories or stories that are just hard to take. This book is that kind of book hands down. I was sucked in from the very first paragraph, yes that’s right it didn’t even take me a full page to want more from this book.
Darcie what to say this young lady has had a life that is a nightmare. The kind of nightmare most people would not survive and in Darcie’s case didn’t want to survive. That is until she meets her knight in shinin armor. Reggie is a young man who has been dealt some crap hands in life but has managed to take care of his 3 younger brothers.
Reggie takes Darcie into his household and assumes full responsibility for her. However Darcie is no longer a 14 year teenager and neither one of them are prepared for the feelings that are no longer “older brother, younger sister”. Reggie knows he needs to keep his distance but he finds it hard to when Darcie is still dealing with demons he has vowed to keep away. He also has two huge things from both of their past haunting his every step. Darcie herself has become a hardened girl who fights her demons through throwing punches.
Along with Darcie and Reggie there is Jake and Jeremy twins, then you have Drake the youngest brother. From the first you are also introduced to Presley who is young girl that is going to be the person who brings Darcie’s past to the present and no one is prepared for what is to come.
You will find your heart breaking for these characters, you will be laughing at some of the things come out of these characters mouths. You will fall in love with Reggie and wish you had a man like him that will protect you from every single bad thing out there. I highly and I mean HIGHLY recommend this book. This book is part of a series but it is not a cliffhanger it appears each book continues with the other brothers. I am looking forward to reading more about this family.
