I’m the guy you love to hate.
In every story in my life, I seem to end up playing the villain—and I’ve got the scars to prove it.
That role works fine for me, because I’m sure as hell not anyone’s hero.
I run my life and my empire with an iron fist—until she knocks my tightly controlled world off its axis.
She’s nobody’s damsel in distress, but I can’t help but want to save her anyway.
I guess we’re about to find out if there’s a hero buried … beneath these scars.

Review by Michelle:
How do these books just keep getting better and better? As a huge fan of the Beneath series by Meghan March, I find myself asking this same question with each new book. From the moment I heard talk of Lucas Titan finally telling his story, one thing I knew for certain was that I needed to get my hands on Beneath These Scars as soon as humanly possible and the other thing I was certain of was that I was going to love it. After all, what's not to love? A filthy mouthed, sexy as sin alpha and a strong and sassy woman meet, butt heads to no end, and find healing beneath the scars of the past. I, of course, was right making Beneath These Scars my new favorite in the series and new favorite altogether.
Starting out with the long awaited showdown between Lucas Titan and Con Leahy is definitely one way to get your blood flowing and your adrenaline pumping right off of the bat. Add to that Meghan March's witty and humorous writing style with many a delightful one liner that kept me smiling and chuckling throughout. Sprinkle in a good bit of suspense around every turn and, as if the rest of the book wasn't gripping enough, reveal a shocking twist at the end and you have yourself a book that you simply cannot stop reading, one that will keep you glued to its pages, and one that is sure to keep you up well past your bedtime.
Once the hint of Yve's past was mentioned in previous books, I admit I was a bit curious about her and where she came from, but I was always so enthralled with the couple at the time that I never really had a chance to give her much of a second thought. What a mistake that was. Yve is admirably tough, competent, quirky, and wonderfully sassy and I loved every minute of being inside this woman's head. Strong, determined, and feisty, sometimes to a fault, Yve owns it and makes it respectable, commendable, and totally endearing.
Two people who don't take flack from anyone? Sounds like a match made in heaven. Of course there are bound to be some bumps along the way, a relationship like this is anything but easy. Lucky for me, a relationship that begins with a healthy dose of animosity has always been a favorite of mine as it makes for one intensely passionate love story. Let me tell you, Lucas and Yve have loathing and hostility in spades. In the case of these two, they have blisteringly explosive chemistry and the anger always simmering just beneath the surface makes even the most mundane of encounters between them exciting and pulse racing. With plenty of scathing repartee, witty quips and comebacks and some of the best hate sex I have ever read, Yve and Lucas take enemies to lovers to a whole new level. Yve needs someone who knows what he wants, is not afraid to chase after it, and isn't pushed away easily. Lucas always gets what he wants (with one glaring exception) and he has decided he wants Yve. Any other man would have given up long ago, but not the almighty Mr. Titan who refuses to accept any other answer. Who knew the clash of these titans could be so fun, sexy, and oh so tasty?
The Lucas Titan we have seen in the past has been downright deplorable, but this time around we get to see both sides of Mr. Titan, the hardnosed, no nonsense businessman as well as the sweet and attentive lover that it seems only Yve can bring out. And when she does? Lucas Effing Titan of all people made my heart clench time and again and made me melt into a puddle of my own drool with his ardent possessiveness, his stunning attentiveness, his unexpected sensitivity, and his deliciously dirty mouth. I am a sucker for a man that is hard to get a good read on, who seems unapproachable and maybe even potentially unlovable, but when it comes down to it, he is kind, caring, and considerate as the best of them when the right woman comes along. A man that only shows his woman his softer, vulnerable side. If you looked Lucas Titan up in the dictionary, this would be the definition. When he is with Yve he is a completely different man than the one that we all grown to love to hate, one who will completely win you over, and one you just can't help but fantasize about what it would be like to call him your own.
Meghan March has done it again. Just when I think it just doesn't get any better than this, Beneath These Scars ups the ante. Delightfully charming, searingly hot, and wonderfully thrilling, this is my favorite book thus far and I can't wait to see where things go from here.
