When 'good girl' high schooler Athena falls in love with an ex-convict and bad boy, old family secrets comes back to haunt them and keep them apart. ~~~~~ Living up to her good girl reputation had never been an issue for Athena Brown, all thanks to her overbearing and controlling mother. She has the heart of an angel. Pure at heart, but has a mind full of scars. To her, pain is inevitable. That is until she meets Aiden Tobias Knight. Handsome, cocky, and with a criminal past, he was everything she needed to steer clear of. Everyone in her town knows about Aiden Knight- the troubled and ex-convict badboy who has anger issues and known for his numerous visits to jail. Those who look into Aiden's eyes only see pure fury and hatred. They all think he's beyond redemption, even Aiden himself. But not Athena. As someone who has grown accustomed to pain, she understood him a tad bit better than most people. She saw something more in those alluring green eyes. Something worth fighting for. Thanks to a school's project and Aiden's sudden interest in her, the two began spending a lot of time with each other and formed an unbreakable bond that unearths secrets and emotional turmoil for Athena and everything she had allowed herself to believe. And soon, their lives became dangerously intertwined in a race against time, lies and deceit. Twists gets turns, fates became entangled and life become even harder than before. The closer they get to each other and the more vulnerable they become, Athena has to wonder: is she saving Aiden from his darkness? Or is she pulling him deeper into hers? Read more to find out. The book is written solely from the female lead's perspective. It's also divided into two parts. ~~~~~~ Excerpt: Athena stares ahead into sheer nothingness as the cool evening breeze swept through her body, making her hair stand on end. Up to yesterday, she was the happiest girl on earth. But now, it's like she has lost all purpose, almost like every living moment makes a living scar. It leaves her bleeding helplessly, because she's all alone. She should've known happiness is never hers to begin with. She is not to love or to be loved. That's her fate. That's who she's meant to be. A soul that is forbidden to love or fall in love. Either she accepts this or she keeps getting inflicted with more pain and scars than she already has. ~~~~~ Lo and behold, here you have it guys. A slow burn whirlwind romance full of love, tears, lies, trust, pain and deceit, also known as Fading Scars: Scars Of The Past. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I love writing it.

Wake up, wake up, wake up...

"Wake up, wake up, wake up..."

I shifted slightly as the deep voice beside me got louder. "Come on, babe!  Get up! Wake up, wake up, Hazel."

I grabbed the pillow underneath me and stuffed it on my face, trying to block out his voice. A hand slowly pulls it down and away from my face. "Come on, baby! Wakey, wakey, lemon squeezy!"

I still didn't open my eyes, but I'm sure I have the weirdest look on my face right now. "What are you saying? I'm pretty sure it's easy peasy, lemon squeezy!"

My voice sounded groggy from sleep, but Aiden didn't complain. "I don't know what it is, you Americans say. Everything was so much easier back in England."

"I know you said you miss it and that you don't ever want to go back, but will you ever? It's your home after all."
