Publisher's Summary

How far would you go to find love and happiness?

Kevin Anderson lost his opportunity to play basketball during his senior year at college. Determined to not let his extraordinary athletic ability go to waste, Kevin trains for a chance at the pros. Basketball is only matched by his love for music - one is his talent, the other is his passion.

Trinity Brown keeps her life on track as she focuses on finishing her last year of college. She is shocked when her admiration for a local deejay captures his attention. Unsure of their future, Trinity is torn between her feelings for Kevin, and her responsibility to her family.

Kevin soon realizes that his talent for basketball and his love of music means nothing if he doesn't have Trinity to share it with, but he's unsure if she feels the same. He's not giving up on her without a fight. Can Kevin convince Trinity that the beautiful music they make together is worth fighting for? Or will he lose Trinity to a family that threatens to pull her away?

just read the review

you know those stories where you feel like you're living it and the characters are really relatable and the story feels so real you think that it could've been based on a true story? this is not that book...its extremely generic not believable at all and so predictable that i could've wrote the book myself. the readers voice was monotone and the different voices for different characters are just sad and it sounded like this was his first time reading the book and his reading level is about 6th grade. i 100% do not recommend this book!

Scratched by Marie Long

Scratched by Marie Long
2nd book of the Anderson brothers series. New adult romance. Present tense. Can be read as a stand-alone.
Written from the view and language of a mid 20’s male mid city.

Kevin Anderson decides to finish his last year in college and hopes to restart his basketball hopes and dreams. At the same time he meets Trinity, a large and curvy woman who makes his heart pound. (This last sentence written in my normal language rather than the author’s choice of words.)

Lots T&A comments. Lots of swearing. The writing fits the age and gender of the male character but bothered me both as a female and romance reader. I didn’t appreciate Kevin’s attitude at times and while I understood her fascination with his “celebrity”, I never felt that her true feelings went beyond that.

I listened to the audio version which fit the male identity but was horrible to listen to for the same reason I didn’t care for the book in whole: language and lack of respect.

Narrator and Storyline

I tried to look past the monotone of the narrator and push through the story but it was dragging. Finally by Chpt 12, I gave up.
