Not Every Scar is Visible…


What do you do when the girl you want can’t even remember your name?

This pretty, petite, long-legged, fiery girl who makes me weak in the knees. Of all the chicks who flirt with me, hang around me, I could have my pick but no… I want psycho girl.

One day she ignores my existence, and the next she smiles and talks to me as if she knows me, as if she wants me.

What the hell is she playing at? She’s driving me up the wall.

I want her so bad I can’t think straight.

It’s the last thing I need, with these strange nightmares that plague my nights and make me wonder whether something happened in my past.

Something I can barely remember.

Memories of a bogeyman, and a body, and blood, and fear unlike any I’ve ever felt in my life.

Between the dreams and this sexy psycho-girl, I might as well be losing my mind.

Unless I find out what’s going on, get the girl and lay the bogeyman to rest for good…



My ARC Review:

Another great read from Jo, this is Merc’s story – I’ve read this as a standalone, Merc being a brother from the Caveman and Bad Wolf books, which I haven’t read yet – this does not detract from the story, it is a great read and only makes you want to get to know the rest of the family!!

Jo’s boys she writes about always tend to be broken and hurt, Merc is a little different, something happened to him when he was about 4 yrs old, and his mind has repressed it, hiding away what really happened to him. But he suffers greatly from nightmares and the occasional flashback, unable to get any decent sleep due to his disrupted sleep pattern. He’s had his eye on a girl for a while but her hot and cold responses really throw him for a loop, which earns her the nickname of Psycho Girl!

Cosima has a twin, Sophie, who she stands in for at school sometimes, this is what Merc can’t understand, its actually two different girls not just one. Cosima really likes Merc and feels an instant attraction with him, but she herself has insecurity problems, feeling herself to be the ‘darker’ twin and not worthy of being loved.

When these two eventually get together they hit it off massively, she feels happy and loved by Merc, while Cosima is the balm to his mind, quietening everything within him. They are so sweet and cute together, with some crazy hot chemistry in there for added measure, their thing being up against a wall!!

A good storyline that will have you on the edge of your seat as the story unfolds. I loved the Merc’s family and how strong their love and connection is. Lots of characters in here who you need their story for, so several books coming later out of this!! I can’t wait. Highly recommended reading.
