Title and Author: Scratched by Marie Long
No. of Pages: 324
Series: The Anderson Brothers Series, Book 2
Genre:  New Adult Romance
Publication Date: 4th August 2015

Twenty-four year old Kevin Anderson lost the opportunity to end his senior year at the University of Washington as the Huskies' all-star point guard, and sought out one last opportunity to put his extraordinary basketball skills to use: by training for a chance at the pros.

But when he's not on the court, Kevin has only two things in his life that gives him happiness: spinning records at the local clubs, and Trinity Brown. 

Trinity attends almost every one of Kevin's deejay gigs, but Kevin is uncertain if her love for him is genuine or a fangirl's simple admiration. Kevin takes that chance and hopes that she will see beyond the celebrity persona. But when fall classes start up again, their busy schedules press their relationship. 

Kevin doesn't want to give up on her--on them. He hopes the happiness they had will rebound once more. 

But when he learns the truth about Trinity, Kevin must decide if it is worth everything--and everyone--he cares about to save her, or forfeit this exhausting game of love.

~Book Review~

Scratched is the second book in the Anderson Brothers series. It can be read as a stand-alone but I do recommend reading the first book, Scarred. I read the first book and I liked it but I wasn't thrilled about it. I did like knowing a little about Kevin and Trinity already when I started reading this second book. And I think Marie Long's writing has improved in this second book. 

Kevin is probably my favorite character in this whole series. I understand having to give up your dreams and aspirations in order to provide for someone that you love. It can be really hard but you do it because you love someone and you never once regret it. 

Kevin and Trinity's relationship is the main focus of this book and it is an amazing story. It feels so real and life-like that you can almost forget these people are fictional! You can tell that they really care for each other but they've both been hurt before and have their own issues that they hold back. Neither of them want to fully give themselves over to the other because of their pasts. 

Marie Long does a great job writing from the male perspective. As a writer, sometimes that's hard to do. Marie is able to tell the story from his perspective and still make it seem very authentic. The writing in this book is fantastic and the emotions are so easy to feel yourself from the way that Marie writes. 

I can't wait to read more from Marie Long!
