Book Review: Menace (Scarlet Scars #1) by J.M. Darhower

Menace Author J.M. Darhower  Series Scarlet Scars


Published January 16th, 2017

Once upon a time, there was a guy who got so fed up with life that he resorted to murder and mayhem just to feel alive.

Lorenzo Gambini is bored. So fucking bored. Most people either annoy him or avoid him, afraid to face him. Figuratively. Literally. With his face partially disfigured, scarred, he looks every bit the monster the stories make him out to be: the notorious menace they call Scar. They say he’s a sociopath. Maybe he’s a psychopath. Whatever path he’s on, people tend to stay far away from it.

Until one day, a young woman bumps right into him–a woman just as fed up with life, but for many different reasons. With a Scarlet Letter inked on her wrist and secrets buried deep in her soul, Morgan Myers is running from something… or maybe somebody. Lorenzo isn’t quite sure.

You can bet your ass he’s going to figure it out, though.

My Review

Okay. J.M. Darhower writes awesome kickass books about bad people and I love Lorenzo. He doesn’t apologise for anything, does whatever the hell he wants and just does it so smoothly. He is a boss in the true sense, doesn’t leave all the job doing to his lackeys lol. He works hard, ensures that things go smoothly. He is perfectly flawed.

Morgan, I don’t know how to categorise her. She’s been through a lot, but she’s still floating, still fighting and not yet broken. She’s strong and a bit on the crazy side, but I really like her and I can’t wait to see how her and Lorenzo’s relationship develops in the next book, which I’m glad comes out on the 6th of February.

This story despite it being a dark romance, suspenseful thriller kinda book. So much is going on and it’s highly addictive. I love it lol, this is my kind of dark romance not like K. Webster, who went overboard with her War & Peace series.

The plot is questionable but in a good way. So many twists and unexpected turns. Typical Darhower style and the big reveal at the end I didn’t see coming. I can’t wait for the next book in the series, which will complete it.
