Publisher's Summary

Luca Tallorico: Drummer, hot-tempered, hurt. The pain in his texts spoke to my own. I reached out, secure in the knowledge we would never meet. He had different ideas. He makes me feel special and beautiful, and makes promises I’m scared to acknowledge. He tempts me to take a walk on the wild side. But I know if we meet, he'll reject me and walk away. 

Ms. Wrong Number: My firefly, my light. My ever after. I was searching for closure, looking for an escape from the all-consuming guilt. Then I found her, by accident, through a text meant for a ghost. She's a small-town girl, and far too sweet for me. But like a brilliant flame, she lights up my darkness. I just have to break through the walls she’s protecting herself with and make her see she is beautiful and bring us both out of the shadows of our pasts. 

A steamy second-chance rock star romance. Book four in the Forgotten Legacy Rockstar romance series.

Amazing!!

I LOVE the way Thomas Locklear brings my all-time favorite series to life. In the first few books I have felt Luca represented as a bit of a mysterious unknown and he is now my favorite!!! The way he treated the heroine....swoon! This was an incredible story that blew me away!!

Friends First

I really like this series. The characters are flawed and own their mistakes. Luca texts a wrong number resulting in a text friendship with a stranger. Luca and Everly are able to be themselves because their connection is via texts. She has no idea he is a famous rock star, so Luca knows she is genuine.

Thomas Locklear is a fabulous narrator. He is able to capture and convey the dynamics of each character. His sexy voice is an organ to my ears.

Underlying Moral

I absolutely love this story and not just because of the narrator. I think the underlying moral of the story plays a huge role, if you can find it. I feel that both main characters personalities we're formed around their scars, Everleighs being external. She had scars from an accident and it made her humble and kind. Lucia's scars were inside due to the loss of his twin brother, which eventually pushed him to walk away from the rest of his family. He made a new family though in a band and also turned to boxing to get out his frustration. Strange how a random text to a wrong number could bring the unlikely two together.

As usual, the narrator did an amazing job. Absolutely love him.

Well done L.Ann and Thomas Locklear

Luca and Everleigh, his Firefly


Well here we are with book four of Forgotten Legacy and this time it's the turn of Luca the dark and brooding and so far at any rate unknown quantity in the group. I have to admit before continuing that as I've listened to each story I've fallen deeper under the spell of these guys but none more so than the dominant, sexy, damaged, dirty, yet romantic Luca, I loved his story and fell more than a little under his spell.

I don't want to be specific about the storyline because that would spoil it for you but I can safely tell you that when Luca was at his lowest he sent a text to Lexi's old number expressing his feelings, he blames himself for her death, but he sent the text to a wrong number and connected with an unknown woman who talked him down from the edge. They texted for weeks neither knowing who the other was she thinks he's a fighter but he has no idea who she is or what she does, he calls her Firefly. During these texts, a deep connection was made a connection Firefly would rather leave the way it is.

But Luca decides it's time to meet, Everleigh aka Firefly expects it to come to nothing, in fact, she'd prefer not to meet at all, you'll find out why when you read or listen to their story, but Luca manages to track her identity down and turns up at the library. They have already learned so much about each other by then, but she still has no idea who he is and Luca likes it that way, he likes being just an ordinary guy liked for himself alone. These two are perfect for each other despite their very different personalities she's the light to his dark whilst he's able to make her see and become all she is capable of. As he works through the trauma which shaped him she is by his side every step of the way! The connection and chemistry shared by them are palpable and hot, the love they share is deep and abiding - I just loved their story I think it is my personal favourite of the series, I loved it, I laughed and I cried, then I swooned Luca can be so romantic - who would have thought it?

Overshadowing Luca and Ever's story there are problems brewing between Gabe and Harper, problems which have led to the fifth book Broken Halo which I am so eager to listen to. Also in this book, we catch up with and find out more about the rest of Forgotten Legacy and their partners and some questions left hanging in earlier books are answered for us. The Epilogue is not only about Luca and Ever but about all eight of these wonderful characters.

When it comes to the narration by the Oh So Talented Thomas Locklear I'm running out of things to say other than he's wonderfully talented his performance lifted this incredible story to a whole new level, each character is unique and the depth of emotion he manages to imbue into each character couldn't be improved upon, he has worked his wonderful magic yet again.

I was given this audiobook as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review

Heartfelt Journey!

Wow!! I'm utterly blown away by L. Ann's incredible storytelling and Thomas Locklear's stellar performance. Exquisite Scars is beautifully written, emotionally charged, and wholly riveting. As soon as I started listening, I was hooked all the way to the very last word. The character development is absolutely phenomenal. I literally fell in love with Luca, the bad boy drummer and, his firefly, Everleigh, a scarred small-town girl and a librarian. Their journey was utterly poignant, heartrending, and captivating. It started with a wrong number and ended in two completely different people finding something rare and beautiful with each other.

Outstanding narration! Thomas Locklear's portrayal of Luca and Everleigh was flawless. He fully embodied the characters and depicted the nuances of the personalities, emotions, and chemistry. I was totally engaged, invested and felt connected with both characters. Exquisite Scars is definitely my favourite instalment in the forgotten Legacy series and one I'm wholeheartedly recommending.

Breathtakingly Brilliant !

I think this book may be my favourite of the series.
Mainly because I have a connection with Everly and the way she felt and the things she thought about herself.
This book had me in tears by chapter 4 ..lol..
I Love a sexy Drummer and Luca is definitely that...A misdialed phone text leads to months of chatting with a mystery woman known as Firefly..Who is later revealed as Everly.She helps Luca through some dark times...And so he wants to meet her to thank her for saving his life.
But Everly aka Firefly doesn't want to meet Luca Because of the way an accident that left her scarred makes her look.
Oh I absolutely Loved this story between Luca and Everly...I have fallen hopelessly in Love with Luca.The way he was so patient with Everly made my heart melt.
Thomas Lockclear once again just slays it with his Perfect Narration,his performance is flawless and I really enjoy listening to these books,because of Thomas.
L.Ann is such a gifted storyteller and she is making it impossible for me to let these characters go.
Excellent in every way,I highly recommend this book,it is a work of Art .
Magnificent.
All the Stars .

Amazing!!!!!

Reviewing this book is so hard to do because whatever you want to say is going to spoil the story and events that happen within. So I'm not going to summerise the story or tell you anything other than how this book had me reacting. Oh and I had a lot to react to.
Exqisite scars had me screaming, crying then laughing, at one point I was just shocked with pure disbeleif. Yep thats what L.Ann does to you. It was an amazing ride of emotion on all levels. If you are a fan of the forgotten legacy series you will be delighted at the romance and steam that happens between Luca and his lady. Oh boy and the steam levels were up 1000%. The chemistry between these characters is fever pitch. Luca is a naughty boy!!!! In the best possible way.
Lucas lady is not like the other girls in this series and she is a character that complements and fits in well with the rest.
So if you have'nt read the first three books in this sreies I insist you do because one they are awsome and two you need to know what happens to really enjoy Exquisite Scars.
The narration for this book was off the charts hot and steamy as hell. Thomas Locklear has a fantastic way of bringing the best out of the characters. He also has you squirming within your earphones.This author and narrator are match made in book heaven.

I fell in love with this story. The story has action, intrigue and romance, it has every emotion! Luka, the rock star and the librarian made quite a couple.

Book 4 Everly and Luca

I don’t think you have to listen to all the books however it is more enjoyable to listen in order. I have thoroughly enjoyed every book in this series. The characters have so much depth and your heart just goes out to them in every book. This story was so intriguing to me I couldn’t stop listening. I loved all the interaction between Luca and Everly. As always Thomas Locklear is amazing. His ability to have a different voice for every character is unbelievable to me. His acting skills make a great book/series even better. I definitely recommend this book/series.

Exquisite Scars.

I loved this book it was great, the story was written well and the characters were fantastic. Luca had a rough up bringing, he had to fight for survival, he became angrier when his twin died, he is a drummer for a famous band, and also a cage fighter. Luca rang a wrong phone number and met Everleigh she is the total opposite to him and the opposite he would pick for a female. She faces heart ache everyday by people around her and people that use to be around her so she hid from life, she works at a library otherwise she would be home. They started talking to each other, he called her firefly and he was just Luca. It had broken souls that found each other and joined as ying and yang total harmony. There was plenty of ups and downs, struggles, violence, pain, trauma, friendships, healing and love. The narrator was fantastic, the voice was clear and sexual heat when needed. The voice is a big turn on when the arousing words are spoken.

Amazing Rockstar Romance

What can I say except that L.Ann and Thomas have stolen my heart again!

L. Ann has written a riveting story on the Forgotten Legacy band one more time and this book is drummer Lucas’s story. Another gripping tale that follows this band of four friends who have stolen my heart.

Lucas is suffering from a lifetime of loss. We know it from prior books in this amazing series and seen it grip his sole. He reaches out one last time to text another person who has taken his heart but what he doesn’t expect is an answer from anyone. When a mysterious person answers his text he can’t let it go. This was such a unique way for these two to meet and form a mysterious bond. Both are broken in differing ways yet each are so good and healing for the other. L. Ann does not shy away from serious issues and this latest book is no different. I was amazed by how she weaves a story full of realism in situations that you feel to the depth of your heart and sole. Then to hear Thomas play each character so distinctly that it becomes a play enacted in your ears is amazing.

If you ever have a chance to listen to this series in audio, I cannot say enough about Thomas Locklear’s amazing talent in becoming the characters. His female voices, yes voices, are amazing. All of his characters are unique and what makes listening to him perform these voices is mesmerizing, just be sure to listen to them in order!

I cannot wait to hear the finale with Broken Halo. I’m already on pins and needles in anticipation.
