For Autumn Hickman, online dating has been an exercise in nothing more than coffee and failure. There simply isn't a man on the planet who can compare to her best friend, Trey Wattson. And while Trey is everything Autumn has ever wanted in a partner, she knows the man who loves life's most beautiful things could never cherish anything as scarred and mangled as her.

Trey Wattson is in love with his best friend, but he can't seem to reach her. She's guarded, and for good reason, but Trey doesn't care. He knows Autumn's soul, and it's the most beautiful thing he's ever seen. Desperate to claim Autumn's heart for his own, Trey conspires with The Wolves to create a fake profile on the dating site Autumn frequents. But the more Autumn trusts Trey's online persona, the more it becomes clear that Trey is gambling with the very thing he wants most of all.

Return to Tess Thompson's beloved Cliffside Bay and discover for yourself why true love is built on honesty and trust, and why best friends often make the very best life partners, in this anonymous online romance set in your favorite charming small town.

With a degree from the University of Southern California in theatre, she’s spent her adult life studying story, word craft, and character. Since 2011, she’s published 20 novels and 3 novellas. Most days she spends at her desk chasing her daily word count or rewriting a terrible first draft.
She currently lives in a suburb of Seattle, Washington with her husband, the hero of her own love story, and their Brady Bunch clan of two sons, two daughters and five cats. Yes, that's four kids and five cats.

I have had the pleasure of reading this entire series. Usually, I rush through so as to get my review done. This time I took my time and just enjoyed this story. From the moment Autumn came on the scene, I hoped she got her story. And here we have it. I was so happy when this book came out. In the previous books, we meet Stone and Kyle. Well, Autumn is their sister, who was in a horrible car accident that left her legs and heart covered in scars. Along with the scars, Autumn and the other Hickman siblings suffer from abandonment issues. When their mom is found to be homeless, they jump in to care for the women who left them many years ago. Autumn's best friend is a friend of her brothers and a guy she adores. She sees him as a friend. Only. Trey has his own demons and issues of abandonment, but maybe they can battle the scars together and find love. Wow. This book was amazing. My favorite book so far in this series. This book had some major drama, but it was so sweet and well written. By the end, I was in tears. These characters are just loveable. The bonds of family and friendship are so strong in the small town of Cliffside Bay. Id love to see this series made into movies. Tess Thompson never lets me down. This book was excellent and well written. If you love to read about small towns, love, family, and friendship, please read these books.

“Sometimes things have to be blown up in order for the right pieces to fit back together.” Autumn feels that it's her physical scars that block her from finding true love, but it turns out that the emotional scars from her childhood are much deeper, more raw, and far more of an obstacle to her believing that she can be loved. As a best friend, Trey is perfect because he's made it clear that he'll never again risk his heart in a relationship. Only Trey made that decision before he met Autumn, and now he's trying to dig himself out of the friend zone. All he has to do is show her that she's not the only one with scars, and that it is their scars - their histories of what they've survived - that give them the uniquely-shaped edges to fit their lives together in an unbreakable bond. In addition to Trey and Autumn's standalone romance, we also get updates on several of the other couples and quite a few new people moving to Cliffside Bay. I love the emphasis on family, loyalty, and unconditional love that powers each of the story threads throughout this series. Every trip to this charming coastal town is like a beautiful, heartwarming homecoming. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

This was the first book I have read in this series and from this author and I am glad that I did. It was a great book. This book will have you feeling all types of emotions. Everyone has scars and they aren’t always visible to the naked eye. Autumn and Trey are not an exception to this rule. They both have scars that have shaped who they are in the present. Trey and Autumn have been best friends for some time and this was a great friends to lovers’ story. As their relationship starts to progress, they will start to heal the scars that they have. I received an ARC of this book and I am voluntarily leaving a review.

Scarred dares readers to be vulnerable and that makes for the best kind of storytelling. Thompson doesn't hold anything back, she aims right for the heart and scores a direct hit. Trey and Autumn are a reminder of how beautiful love can be. If our emotions are willing to take the risk. My eyes have yet to dry from such a captivating, heartbreaking, soul shaking, magic carpet ride.
