For #ThrowbackThursday I’m sharing some of my favorite past reads WITH review!
“Scars (Passion Shields Book 1)”
by Kiru Taye
She clutches at control to cover her flaws.
He wants to strip her bare because she’s beautiful.
Selina Moss hides a secret beneath her controlled happy exterior. Her body is covered in scars and she’s never revealed them to anyone. She’s not beautiful and she doesn’t want pity.
However, it’s her wedding night and husband, Benjamin Moss, is determined to strip down her barriers.
Benjamin is not playing fair, not when he’s deploying breath-stealing seduction as well as mind-melting sex toys. But will he still want her when she bares all?
Be Warned: sex toys, spanking, bondage

Got My Attention!
If you don’t know the principles of BDSM (like me), it seems as if Selina has made a deal with the devil in the very beginning. Despite the pain, terror, and betrayal in her past that still haunts her daily, she agrees to a marriage of convenience – her submission in return for her new husband’s protection, and getting her brother safely out of Sierra Leone and to the UK.
In the beginning…Selina seems weak and whiny. But as her story unfolds, you realize how strong she really is. Too strong for her own good. She’s an educated woman who wears a mask every day in her job as a pharmacist. No one knows the pain she hides or the cruelties she’s suffered. She allows no one to get close.
No one at least, until Ben. His dominance, quiet strength, and compassion quickly get her attention. He knows she’s suffering and is determined to peel away her layers and “free” her. His methods may not be conventional, but they have their own attraction…and positive effect.
The couple needs to build trust. Selina wants to trust him, but can she? The last time she trusted a man, it cost her dearly.
I highly recommend “Scars”.
