Silver Scars

A story of hope, compassion, healing, and unexpected love.

Gil sees hope for the first time since an explosion left his body and mind shattered. After meeting Keith, a man thriving despite his physical disability, Gil is determined to heal, face his PTSD, and take back his life.

A bomb destroyed lawyer Gil Lemieux’s seemingly perfect life, and PTSD has ruled every decision since the explosion that left him scarred inside and outside. Moving home with his mom was meant to be temporary, just like proofreading for a medical editorial firm. But two years after taking on the wrong court case, he’s still living in fear.

Keith Kramer might be based 1,500 miles from Gil, but their shared work brings them together—a chance meeting that’s life-changing. Gil is drawn to Keith’s good looks and intelligence, but it’s his innate understanding that Gil is more than his scars that’s truly attractive. He’s everything Gil used to be and more. It blows Gil’s mind that his attraction might be returned.

Only doubt could widen the distance between them. Keith’s hopefulness, borne out of surviving some tough challenges of his own, isn’t enough to bridge the distance alone. Gil will need to believe he has as much to offer as Keith if they’re to build a life together.

Wonderful Story

This was a wonderful story about healing and recovery, finding love and someone that believes and understands what the other is going through.

Felt So Real

This is not your usual romantic story. It goes way beyond that. I had the impression I was there, in the book, living in alongside Gil and Keith. They felt so real, their story felt real and I’m sure that, for someone out there, this is not a story at all.

2015 Rainbow Award Finalist & Honorable Mention

A great example to show that just because a character isn’t perfect, doesn’t mean they can’t find love and acceptance.

Beautiful, angsty book!

This was a book about living. Posy has a knack of writing rip your heart out stories. She mends them and put them back, don’t worry. But getting through this book with dry eyes is not possible! Beautiful, angsty book!

Diverse Reader

The characters just jump off the page

The writing is brilliant, as is the plot, and the characters just jump off the page and straight into your heart!

Hope and second chances

This book is about one of the greatest losses that we may encounter. The loss of ourselves, of our identity, but it is also a book about hope and second chances. It is a book full of hope and optimism. Read it because it’s worth it.

Tender and softly emotional

…this is a story about two people two needed each other building a life together through their ups and downs. It was tender and softly emotional rather than being a wild ride.

Inked Rainbow Reads


This book was not what I expected at all, in the best possible way. I feared a book filled with angst and despair but got a story about determination and hope.

Cicatrici d'argenta

Italian Translation

Christina Tormen, translator

Una bomba ha distrutto la vita apparentemente perfetta di Gil Lemieux, avvocato di successo. L’esplosione gli ha lasciato cicatrici dentro e fuori e da quel giorno il disturbo da stress postraumatico ha preso il controllo della sua vita. Tornare a vivere con la madre dovrebbe essere una soluzione provvisoria, tanto quanto correggere bozze per una rivista medica. Ma due anni dopo aver vinto il caso sbagliato in tribunale, Gil vive ancora nel terrore.

Keith Kramer vive a 2500 chilometri di distanza da Gil, ma il lavoro li fa incontrare: un incontro casuale che cambierà le loro vite. Keith è bello e intelligente, ma ciò che attrae di più Gil è la sua capacità di vedere che oltre le cicatrici c’è molto altro. Keith è tutto ciò che era Gil, e di più. Gil non riesce a credere che l’altro ricambi la sua attrazione.

La sola cosa che può aumentare la distanza tra di loro è il dubbio. La speranza di Keith, nata dall’essere sopravvissuto a problemi molto seri, non basta a colmare il divario. Perché possano costruire una vita insieme, è necessario che Gil creda in se stesso e capisca di avere altrettanto da offrire quanto Keith.
