We're so thrilled to be participating in the last day of the read-a-long of TATTOOED SCARS!
What happened in chapters 20 - 23?
Raelyn’s surgery is sooner than she expected, so she’s trying to spend time with her loved ones beforehand. She spends the day with Irish, catching up and having fun, but things take a downhill turn when Raelyn realizes she’s forgotten how to drive, and she wonders how much more of herself and her memories she’s going to lose.
The morning of the surgery arrives and Raelyn is terrified. They need to shave her head, and as an act of solidarity and to show Raelyn that she’s still beautiful, Damien shaves his head as well.
The surgery goes on longer than they expected, but she comes through it. It was more difficult than the doctor anticipated, though, and they’re not sure what the road to recovery will entail.
But Raelyn wakes up and recognizes Damien, who asks her to marry him.
"What if I no longer have memories of us?”
His eyes went soft with reverence, and he vowed, “Then, I’ll remind you, Raelyn, for as long as it takes for you to remember.”
"I found an incredible, amazing woman who could see beyond my tainted, fucked-up black soul, and you loved me anyway."“Forever. Tattooed.”
About TATTOOED SCARS
Raelyn Jennings knows one thing for certain. She loves Damien Heathman with every fiber of her being. A life without him wouldn’t be one worth living.
Damien has never loved a single soul—until Raelyn. She heals the pain that has tainted the deepest part of his heart. She is his everything, his single reason for breathing. Damien’s relentless determination refuses to let anyone or anything stand in his way of being with her.
But soon, Damien’s and Raelyn’s pasts begin to collide with their future in ways they never thought possible, testing their undying love for one another.
Damien’s dark secrets from the scars hidden beneath his tattoos threaten to reveal themselves while Raelyn is faced with impossible decisions that need to be made.
Can Damien convince Raelyn to take a risk in hopes of securing the longevity of their future? Or will Raelyn choose the safe path that also comes with a limit?
There isn’t any time to waste, for the clock never stops ticking.
