Publisher's Summary

Josie doesn’t need any help raising her son.

Pregnant at 16, Josie learned the hard way about men and their empty promises. She picked herself up and is raising her 11-year-old son. By herself. And that’s the way she intends it to stay. Unfortunately, her impressionable boy becomes fascinated by the scruffy, intimidating biker who lives next door. 

The scars on Holt’s face are only the most visible of his wounds.

Out of the hospital after being attacked in his own damn house, Holt is coming to terms with the fact that his scars frighten people. Like his now-ex-girlfriend, who ran after one look at him. Like his redheaded neighbor, who hauled her boy away as if Holt was a serial killer. Fine. He’ll give the pretty bartender all the space she wants.

The Shadowlands will bring them together....

When Josie starts bartending in the exclusive, private club, she discovers her neighbor is a member. And a Master - a skilled, powerful Dom who can make her fantasies come true. Slowly, the firefighter breaks down the walls around her heart, teaching her how to trust. How to love...

But when her son’s choices lead to disaster, can their relationship survive?

Holt was such a sweetie..normally doesn’t describe Dom

Josie and Holt’s story was so sweet. Oh sure, there was hot sex and Dom behavior, but overall it was a sweet story. I wish we had some more information in what happened to the little boy Brandon (I know, I was too involved in the story☺️), but I thoroughly enjoyed the kids dilemma about friendship, change, bullies, etc...Holt has a way with the kids and watching him with Carson and all of his puberty angst was brilliant.
Now while there were times that Josie was working my nerves, I had to appreciate that she on her own since she was 16 so she had very little experience with relationships and men in general..I loved that she was very open about her insecurities and when she needed to apologize or adjust her thinking, she was mature enough to do so and quickly.
Holt knew Josie was his and he staked his claim on her without hesitation.

Really curious about the new security guard and his story though 😉

Opening Up

I love Josie's strength and her fierce determination to care for herself and her child. Her opening herself to Hold is more poignant because it shows true trust and caring. Holt shows patiences and understanding. He isn't perfect but he owns up to his mistakes. I love how his love is bot for Josie and her son.

I also love the dual narration.

Good story

I really enjoyed this story. Especially with the other sub plots that where left from her other books. I can not get enough of the Masters of the Shadowland series.

great book

I loved this story. The author does a great job showing that BDSM lifestyles are not sleazy. I love the push for honesty and the friend family support dynamic.

Wonderful as always

I have enjoyed all of Cherise’s books that I have read. The Shadowland series is my favorite in this genre. The stories are always sweet in the end. With some mystery and action thrown in. The narrators are always exceptional as well. Thank you to the author and narrators.

Hawt!

These stories just get better and better! Each one is unique and kept my attention until the last word! Noah Michael Levine and Erin Deward sucks you right into it as though you are watching every second with the narration of it!

Handsomeness is only skin deep, true beauty lies beneath

Holt has been a Shadowlands member and Master for a long time. He also has been playing the field. Josie is a single mom and *so* not looking for a man.
These two are thrown together by a move, a little bit of fate, and a nudge in the right direction from Master Z (He just can’t prevent himself from playing the matchmaker).

In true Cherise Sinclair fashion the book isn’t just the romance and the kinky times, this time we get a strong dose from reality in the form of Josie’s son, Carson, as he learns about his parenting, adjusts to a new school, and figures out who his real friends are.
At the - very satisfactory ending - we get to see the Shadowlands crew in action when school administration is about to do Carson and his friends great injustice.
Beneath The Scars is a beautiful story about love and looking beneath the surface, it also shows not all scars are visible to the eyes.
I read this book when it was published and it’s even better a second time. Maybe it’s because I was listening (and Erin DeWard and Noah Michael Levine have done an excellent job again) or maybe it’s because I always catch more details and meaning the second (third, etc.) time.
Anyhow, I will be looking forward to more from the Shadowland - like I’m dying to learn about Ghost - and until then I gladly reread an listen the previous ones.
