The Scarred Cliff serial is a reverse harem #WhyChoose story. These novellas may include any of these elements: steamy scenes, ‘I need tissues NOW’ moments, cries of ‘why, oh, why’ and cliffhangers that make you bite your nails (and curse the author). This story includes MF and MM scenes.
Her Escape (Scarred Cliff 1)
One coastal town full of memories, three boys she used to know.
Fleeing her abusive ex, a dead-end job and no prospects for anything better, Mia returns to the coastal town where she used to spend her summers as a kid. She hopes that sorting through the old things in her grandma’s house may give her an idea of what she wants to do for her future. What she didn’t expect was to run into the three boys who used to make her heart race.
It starts with Dylan, the brainiac, now a maths teacher at a nearby secondary school. Then Mal, the joker, who plays guitar in a band and composes music. And finally, Tom, the protector, a single dad who works as a carpenter.
But dark shadows hang over them all, they all have demons in their past, and secrets. The guys she meets aren’t the same as the boys she used to know, but neither is Mia, who may be keeping the biggest secret of them all.
Their Struggle (Scarred Cliff 2)
Three guys who take her back into their arms, one more guy bringing along trouble.
Having fled to the coastal town where she used to spend her summers, Mia reunites with three guys she used to know, and date, Dylan, the brainiac, Mal, the joker, and Tom, the protector. The three guys take her back into their lives like she’s never been gone.
But she has been away, and in that time, life has gotten a lot more complicated for all four of them. Broken relationships, addiction and the loss of Poppy, Mal’s twin sister, Tom’s wife but also Mia’s ex-lover, it all hangs over them like a dark cloud.
Then, another guy from Mia’s past shows up, Jake, the city boy, bringing with him not only the surprise news of Mia’s birthday but also carrying the one secret Mia has been trying to hide from Mal and Dylan. How will the guys react to Jake? But more importantly, how will they respond when they find out why Mia stopped coming to the coast every summer?
Their Downfall (Scarred Cliff 3)
One grim day looming, five lovers fighting to not shatter into a thousand pieces.
The weekend wasn’t easy on Mia or her four guys, Mal, Dylan, Tom and Jake. It started with Jake suddenly showing up at the house, bringing with him some secrets Mia tried to keep from the others, and ended with Tom begging for him to stay a little longer, hoping that his presence will help them not fall apart.
Because dark days are looming. The anniversary of Poppy’s death is on Friday and everyone is on edge, raw with emotions, lost in their own minds, remembering the trauma of losing a beloved sister, friend, wife and lover.
They have to stay together to keep strong, but one impulsive action rips everything apart, throwing them all for a loop. Can they come together in time? Or will this harm their relationships forever?
Can they survive the week?
Her Undoing (Scarred Cliff 4)
One girl on the run again, five broken hearts to mend.
The anniversary of Poppy’s death is hard on everyone, but no matter how much she tries, Mia feels like she can’t stay at the coast any longer, that her being there only brings more pain to Mal, Dylan, Tom and even Jake. So, without telling anyone, she leaves, returns to the city by herself, leaving the guys behind.
The guys are broken of heart and soul, struggling to make sense of the last week, of the last day, struggling to survive.
In their time of need, their time of pain, new alliances are formed, new plans are made. Specifically a plan to create a place where Mia can feel loved and at home, no longer scared, and where they could all live at the same time.
But that would require that Mia returns to them, to the coast, and that turns out to be harder than expected, or is it?
Their Battle (Scarred Cliff 5)
Five lovers figuring out their combined lives, one place they never want to leave again.
After Mia confronted her ex, she finally realised that she didn’t want to live without Dylan, Mal, Tom and Jake anymore. She needs them as much as they need her, especially when it comes to their hearts.
Only, as they’re trying to figure out how to make living and loving together work, the outside world is slowly starting to seep into the little bubble they’ve been living in these last few weeks.
Mia and her men are finally starting to become a family, but that bliss may be cut short when people find out and object to their unconventional setup. Can they protect their new family?
Can they fight those who may ruin their happiness, even with the best of intentions?
Their Treasure (Scarred Cliff 6)
Five lovers, one life together.
After everything Mia, Dylan, Mal, Tom and Jake have struggled through these past weeks, one final challenge remains, they need a place to live, a place that is theirs and theirs alone.
Mia’s parents are on their way to meet them, but Mia and her guys aren’t sure that they’ll let them buy Mia’s grandma’s house, the place they’ve been staying at, without a struggle.
On top of that, some people are still carrying secrets that could change things in surprising ways, and they won’t be able to really be together until those secrets are out in the open. But Mia and her guys are stubborn, if nothing else, and it’s hard to talk about secrets they’ve been carrying around for such a long time. Can they open up and really share their hearts so that they can become a true family?
