Seeing Beyond the Scars (The Manx Cat Guardians #2) by J.P. Sayle


Living in a quiet, controlled world, Brad Cummings does everything he can to not dwell on his traumatic past. Staying hidden, unaware that fate is about to turn his life upside down. A new neighbour has Brad questioning everything about his life and his feelings. Coming to terms with his new life, Brad has no idea something sinister lurks, watching and waiting to steal his happiness and drag him back into the horrors of his past.

Martin Clegg was dissatisfied with his life, he finds himself drawn to a small island off the Irish Sea, but the draw to the mysterious house across the way is even stronger. A new business, a new house, a new neighbour who just may be the reason for the pull Martin felt. Everything about Brad calls to Martin, but Brad's past seems to stand between them. Can Martin protect his heart when he is also worried about protecting Brad from the evil that surrounds them?

Guardian cats walk this earth, there to protect—if you are fortunate enough to be blessed by the fates. Princess is one such cat. As far as Brad knows, she is his quirky little cheeky black cat.
Princess is sworn to hide her secret about her real nature. But when Brad finds himself in danger Princess breaks all the rules that govern her. Will there be consequences for her actions, only time will tell.

Warning: Seeing Beyond the Scars is only for adult readers as it contains, scenes of a sexual nature between two consenting adults.
There are no cliffhangers but it does connect to the up and coming second book in the series and does have a HEA ending.

My Rating - 5 Stars!

Seeing Beyond The Scars is a fantastic novel by JP Sayle.

Do not be scared away if you don't read magic/fantasy type novels, as I don't usually myself. But, this series, despite taking place in a magical/fantasy type world, is very much about the romance and the Manx Cats just add to the story, instead of distracting one from reality.

This tale revolves around Brad, and his new neighbor Martin. And since they might need a little push towards one another, we have Princess, the Manx cat, to intervene a little.

Omg. Brad. I love him. He's been living as a recluse and when he's forced to get out of his comfortable zone, he's so awkward, so funny. And the waxing scene is one of the most hysterical scenes ever. Of course, he's full of insecurities and scars from past abuse.  

Their tale is wonderfully written, with a whole lot of creativity and fun. They have a whole lot standing in their way though. But, the attraction between the men is hot and untamed. And, sweet lord, JP Sayle can write an amazing sex scene!

Seeing Beyond The Scars is entertaining throughout. The meaning of the title is absolutely beautiful. I am really enjoying this series.
