ליליאן האריס / Fragile Scars / Lilian Harris 💔

I still can't believe this is the author's first book, she totally rocked it! 👑👏

Damian doesn't do relationships. He grew up in an abusive home where his mother suffered from violence by his father on a daily basis – until she was murdered. 💔
Since, Damian keeps a safe distance from love for fear of becoming a monster like his father… until he moves next door to Lilah. 😍

📚 "I don’t know what’s making you look so sad, but whatever it is, it’s not worth it. Hope tomorrow is a better day." 📚

Lilah lives in hell. Her boyfriend since college, Ash – has been verbally and physically abusing her for years and she doesn't know how to get out of that circle… 😭
When Damian moves in next door, he becomes her protector and tries to make her realize that she deserves more than what she let herself believe – but Lilah is trapped by a painful secret that keeps her with Ash. 😱😱😱

Why doesn't Lilah leave? What does Ash have on her? And what will the connection between Damian and her lead to? Will it grow to be more than friendship? 🙏❤

📚 “I want to help you. I want to protect you. All you have to do— is let me.” 📚

It was a great book, but there were some things that bothered me. First, the quick connection between Lilah and Damian was unrealistic… for a woman who lives in an abusive relationship for years – her physical attraction to Damian (a man she doesn't know) was illogical. 😬

📚 "I don’t know how she has faith in a stranger when she was just hurt by someone who's supposed to love her." 📚

While I can't judge because I've never been in a violent relationship (thank goodness), usually women stay because of love – and they blame themselves for everything. I won't expose for fear of spoilers, but that wasn't the case here, and it made her weak in my eyes. 😬
Even though I liked Damian's protective character – the contrast between his fear of a relationship and the strong desire to be exclusive with Leila was a bit strange… 😱
And finally, although the ending was good, it felt missing. Lilah did find true love and the happy ending she deserved, but apart from a "healthy" relationship- she didn't go through a healing process and I wanted to see her deal with everything she went through! ❤

📚 "He makes me want to live another day. And if today is the last day I get in this world, I’ll welcome it with open arms because it’s been a good day." 📚

Nonetheless, I have to give Lilian credit for her courage on writing about such a painful subject in her first book. 👏
She did a great job researching the subject and even managed to add romance, passion, humor and a surprising twist that I never saw coming! 🐻🔥

This book made me feel so many emotions – pain, anger, frustration, hope and love. ❤ Damian was a great male character – a tough broken alpha but also sensitive and romantic – just the way I like them!!! 😍

great job Lilian! I can't wait to read Lexi and Jax's story, in 'Fragile Lies'! 💋
