Emotionally Scarred : A Down South Romance

Emotionally Scarred marks the launch of a new urban romance series from bestselling author Michelle Elaine about love, heartbreak, and a woman with an inescapable past…

With social media fame, money, and power, Coko Porter thinks she has it all—friends, family, and the love of her life. However, life comes fast, and for her, that can’t be more true. In one tragic event, her life changes forever, and she’s left to pick up the pieces and start all over again. Six years later, she thinks she’s dealt with the trauma of her past, but she can’t be more wrong.

Amir Bryant is the king of Nashville. But a change in circumstances prompts him to move to Atlanta with the intent to turn over a new leaf and become a better man for the sake of his daughter. When his path crosses with Coko’s, things get off to a rocky start. Her slick tongue and her reputation as a gold-digging scammer can’t be overlooked. Still, when they discover there’s no avoiding one another, they also learn they have more in common than they initially thought.

Just when Coko feels like things are starting to look up, skeletons she’s tried to keep in her closet come tumbling out, and things start to tailspin. When secrets and lies come back to haunt them, the progress they’ve made goes up in flames. What will the future hold when the smoke starts to clear?
