Scarred Review!

Ok, so I have been invested in this series for quite some time now, but weirdly I have never featured it on my blog.  I'm fixing this mistake today!   Amber Lynn Natusch is an awesome author of the Caged series!  She's not only awesome because we have the same middle name, but she writes one kick ass series.  So to catch you up and get you familiar with the character's I will be talking about (if you haven't read any of her books, which you should because they are awesome!) here is a blurb for you of Caged: "I stood in the middle of the room, unmoving – I barely breathed. My life had just become surreal, impossible, and one enormous lie. I needed to go, to run somewhere, anywhere to beat back the reality that was rapidly closing in around me. The image of him was burned into my retina, flashing over and over again like a warning. He was trapped somewhere between human and decidedly not, and I realized that was my new reality.
I was too."

After the death of her parents, Ruby awakens from a lifetime of shadows and finds herself alone, thrust into a world of lies, deceit, betrayal and the supernatural.
As her quest for truth continues to come up short, she realizes that maybe some questions really are best left unanswered.
When her true identity is finally unveiled, she is forced to choose between two of the mysterious men who continually seem to crop up in her life.
She chooses poorly.
Now abandoned, Ruby must learn to call on the darkness within to survive, or spend a hellish eternity imprisoned because of it.

Ok, fair warning, once you start this series you will be going on a crazy ride.  It's like a roller coaster and the first book barely takes you over the first major fall.  Every book is filled with crazy action, intrigue, and of course the wonderful Cooper and sexy untouchable Sean.  Scarred, the fourth book in this series has a really special place in my heart because we finally start seeing some resolution in Ruby's life, which I am extremely pleased about.  I feel like in this installment we really actually get to see the real Sean which is awesome.  I also think that the emotional connection between him and Ruby is really sweet.  It's not about him being out of reach now, it's more about figuring out how to let Ruby in, which is heart melting.  Literally.  Oh, and What. The. Heck.  We see a revival of Matty who freaked out on Ruby about her secret the last time we saw him, and now he's back and he wants Ruby and he will not be letting her go without a fight.  The ending.  This ending literally has to be the biggest cliffhanger of the series.  I don't even know what to do with myself right now, so much so that I am leaving a ton of incomplete sentences in this post.  But, that is how much this book has messed with me emotionally.  I need the next one.   Like right now.  So, if you haven't picked up these books yet, please, please do.  They are really good and so engrossing.  I can only hope that the next book will be out asap, because I am dying here!  

Scarred Blurb:

I loathed myself for wishing a death of that nature on anyone, and even more so because I still wanted it to happen. My moral fiber was unraveling quickly, and I wondered how long my humanity could withstand the unending trial of values my life had become. With every choice I made I felt it slipping away.

And further down the rabbit hole I fell.
