Secrets and Scars
By Dori Lavelle
Fatal Hearts Series, Book 3
The nightmare is far from over.
Alvin Jones, Chloe’s husband from hell, is hot on their trail.
Her nose is picking up on his scent. Her skin feels the heat of his rage. Her tongue tastes death—hers and Owen’s.
Owen Firmin has rescued her from her worst nightmare, but will they be able to cross a dangerous island filled with traps and other hazards in order to reach Owen’s yacht, and their only real chance of escape?
Chloe has learned the hard way that life is full of surprises. The next one could be waiting just around the corner.

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of Secrets and Scars by Dori Lavelle for the purpose of an honest review.
I left Chloe in the previous novel in the Fatal Hearts Series running for her life from her maniac husband, Miles/Alvin. And I don’t think I breathed a breath of safety for her even when I finally got my ARC of Secrets and Scars.
Ms. Lavelle never disappoints and as Chloe and Owen continue to outmaneuver Miles/Alvin I continued to hold my breath when Chloe couldn’t breathe. I felt every moment of her physical and mental pain. I felt terror when Chloe experienced terror. And I sobbed in relief each time safety seemed near.
Ms. Lavelle never lets her readers off the hook that easily, and she didn’t disappoint me in Secrets and Scars! Her writing is intense, her characters are so very real, and happily-ever-after is so very hard to come by!
I have been so pleased with the entire Fatal Hearts Series and I strongly urge you to pick up all three novels in the series! Dori Lavelle will quickly become one of your favorite authors, as she has become one of mine!
I very highly recommend Secrets and Scars by Dori Lavelle and give is five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee!
