Beneath These Scars by Meghan March

Date of Publication: September 22, 2015



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.







Beneath These Scars, the fourth book in the Beneath Series, focuses on Lucas and Yve's story. A story about a woman who has rebuilt her life despite a past that has scarred her both mentally and physically and a man who goes after what he wants regardless of the consequences. This story was a 3.5 star read for me and I would recommend this series to others.

Lucas Titan is a powerful business man who has more money than he knows what to do with, is used to be in control of all things, in and out of the bedroom, yet still has a yearning to help others. Yve Santos has begun to rebuild her life following the horrific demise of her marriage, which resulted in her ex-husband being jailed for rape. These two are the least likely to fall for each other, but fate brings them together in the name of Yve's employee Levi, who she later discovers is Lucas's younger brother.

Lucas has never had a real relationship with a woman, as his world of money and power doesn't always allow for real relationships. Lucas tends to have one night stands, where everyone is aware of the rules going into the bedroom and is agreeable to coming out. Yve has vowed never to have a relationship with a wealthy man again, as the wealthy know how to bend the rules in their favors. All of Yve's rules fly out the window when Lucas in near her, she loses the ability to think rationally, but she knows one thing, she will never become what the rest of the Santos woman have been, paid mistresses. Lucas is determined to make Yve his, but he is working against odds that he knows nothing about. Someone is stalking Yve, hell bent on killing her and he has no idea who or why.

This story is filled with mystery and a blossoming love that will keep you riveted to your kindle while you read. I recommend this book to others as I know you will enjoy the story as much as I have.




Beneath These Scars is the 4th book in the Beneath Series but can be read as a standalone. I normally don't read books that I haven't read the others in the series but this I actually didn't realize was apart of a series.. which totally surprised me when I found out but I was happy with how the book turned out. I would give this book a 3.5 stars and would recommend to others.

This book is about Yve and Lucas and how there scars of there pasts define the people they have become today.. but in a great fight against all odds Yve and Lucas will try to break down eachothers barriers and uncover each others secrets, but will the determination destroy what they have or make them stronger?? Or will pasts have a way of creeping up and stealing the happiness they have found in eachother.

Go get this book now and I may have to check out the rest of the books in this series because they do play a part in this story as well and I wouldn't mind seeing how they all started there journey that led the to where they are today.



I adored this story.

Now mind you I read this story as a standalone, and have not read the others in this series. It was easy to follow, I wasn't left scratching my head going 'huh?'

Yve is a feisty little thing, determined to make life on her own terms. Her past is slowly catching back up to her but Yve refuses to be run out of her town.

Lucas enters and nothing is the same again. Lucas also suffers from a troubled past but find himself enamored with Yve and wanting to protect her. He is confused on what to do with these new feelings. No one has run away from him before and Yve does.

I liked that Yve remained independent and yet relinquished some control to Lucas here and there.

Can Lucas finally catch her and get her to stay? Can Lucas be her knight in shining armor?

Chapter 1
Lucas

SWEAT DRIPPED INTO MY EYES as I bounced on the balls of my feet. Someone had to be calling out how much time was left in this round soon. My pride was on the line, and there was no way I would hand it over to Con Leahy. He'd already gotten the girl, and I wasn't about to let him humiliate me in the ring in this piece-of-shit New Orleans gym too.

My muscles burned, but that was nothing compared to the heat of victory—or the sting of defeat. What had started out as a boxing lesson had quickly transformed into an all-out brawl for dominance and respect.

Only you would pay a million dollars to get your ass kicked, Titan. The voice in my head mocked me as I bobbed and weaved. But I hadn't paid a million to get my ass kicked. I'd done it because that night at the charity auction I'd been drunk, pissed off, and determined to prove a point—he might've gotten the girl, but I was still the one with the power. I got a sick sense of satisfaction that every time Con bought something for his gym and these kids, he had to think of me.

I swung with another right hook. The blow connected with Con's jaw and snapped his head to the side.

Yeah. That's right. But my mental cheer came a moment too soon, and pain exploded in my left side.

Shit, that's going to hurt tomorrow.

I stumbled back but threw myself forward again, shooting out my fist with an uppercut that knocked Con back a step. This was how it had gone for the last several minutes—trading punches and circling each other.

There was no love lost in this ring, that was for damn sure, and I was ready for this to be over. I would walk out of here with every bit of the respect I was owed. Fuck anyone who thought otherwise.

Con moved toward me and the circling started again. The cheers and chants from the crowd surrounding the ring in the old warehouse gym seemed to grow every time I glanced beyond the ropes. A flash of blond hair caught my eye as I stepped left and Con shifted to the right.

Vanessa.

She threw her head back and laughed at something said by her redheaded friend, Elle. I turned my attention back to the man in front of me, but my focus wandered again when a huskier, sexier laugh echoed through the room.

My eyes strayed from Con for a second too long as I tried to track down the source of the laughter. Pain burst through my jaw, catching me by surprise, and I stumbled back into the ropes. Using their momentum, I shoved off to the side, my pride stinging from my momentary lapse in concentration. Embarrassed and now thoroughly pissed off, I surged forward and attacked.

One punch. That was all I landed before the bell rang, signaling the end of the round and my very expensive "lesson."

I pushed off Con, and my knee might have slipped as I stepped back . . . and caught him directly in the balls. It was probably an accident. I huffed out a chuckle, but Con didn't share my humor.

"Goddamn it!" he roared. "Are you fucking serious?"

It was like stabbing a bull with a matador's sword, but I was ready for him. I jumped out of the way as Con charged, and shifted into a defensive stance when he swung.

"Should've expected a cheap shot from you, motherfucker." Unrestrained anger flashed over his face as every shred of coaching mentality fled, along with that smug superiority he'd been giving me.

Good. You aren't better than me, Leahy. I could buy and sell you a hundred times over.

He might've gotten the girl, but I wasn't going to let him get away with her clean. I wanted blood.

"Should've expected you to strut around this ring like a fucking cock of the walk," I shot back.

Con feinted and swung again, but I'd been studying his movements. I bobbed and weaved, and got the hell out of the way.

I threw my own punch as soon as I had a clean shot. It landed just below Con's left eye, splitting the skin over his cheekbone and sending blood spattering everywhere.

The taste of victory was sweet. "First blood," I said under my breath.

Apparently my words weren't quiet enough because Con's head snapped up and he glared at me with disgust, as if I needed to be put down like a rabid animal. "This ain't a fuckin' duel, you piece of shit."

"It sure isn't a friendly competition either."

"Paid a million to get that cheap shot in, didn't you?"

My lips twisted into a mocking smile. "I sure didn't pay a million to have you show me up."

Con dropped his hands and shook his head. "Just when I thought you weren't a complete fucking asshole."

"You were wrong," I replied, turning for the ropes.

Con's fists lifted and before I could react, one connected with my cheekbone. The instantaneous gush of blood told me I'd have a scar to match his, but it didn't matter. One more scar wouldn't hurt my banged-up face.

I roared as I charged, but I didn't get the chance to retaliate. Shouts filled the room, and beefy arms wrapped around my body, holding me back.

"You're not half bad when you're not being a shady rich prick," Lord's voice said in my ear.

I lunged toward Con, but Lord's grip only tightened. "Get your goddamn hands off me," I growled at him.

Leaning closer to my ear, he lowered his voice. "When you calm the hell down and realize you're making an ass of yourself in front of a bunch of kids and women."

I glanced out to the crowd and read disgust on so many faces, including Vanessa's. Like it mattered what a single goddamn person in this gym thought of me. I could buy and sell them all.

Lord was still holding me back when Con came toward us. He yanked his gloves off and wiped at the blood still dripping from the gash on his face.

"You're also not half bad when you're paying attention—and when you're not throwing a knee into my nuts. But I think you've overstayed your welcome."

I jerked at the arms trapping me. "Call off your dog, and I'm gone."

"You ever want another round, it's gonna cost you two million next time," Con said.

"For another chance to make you bleed? I'd pay even more."

Con nodded to his brother, and Lord let me go. The crowd had already started to disperse. The only person in the building who probably didn't want to run me down in the parking lot was my COO, and arguably my friend, Ryder Colson. And he was nowhere to be seen.

Instead of Colson, I saw a group of women moving toward the door—Vanessa Frost in her white cotton dress, Elle Snyder in her yellow retro number, and two others I didn't know. One looked familiar with tanned skin the color of honey, her hair in dark waves, and a curvy body displayed by a funky teal dress with hot-pink polka dots. She hooked her hands on her hips, and that husky laugh echoed through the room again. Apparently she was the one who had distracted me in the ring. My eyes didn't move from her to take in the fourth woman.

Colson came up beside me. "Who knew there'd be so many hot pieces of ass in this shit warehouse?"

I turned toward him. "Give any of them a shot, and you'll probably find yourself bleeding on the floor."

Ryder shrugged off my comment. "Go get your shit. I'll wait."

He was gone before I could tell him he didn't need to wait around for me. But then again, he was my only ally in a building full of people who undoubtedly would have preferred to see me KO'd on the floor of the ring. Just one more place I'd never be welcome.

Good thing I didn't give a fuck.

I'd showed up, gone toe-to-toe with Con, and had taken back a piece of my pride. That was enough.

For today.

I was already thinking of hiring a trainer as I went for my bag.
