    ~°~°~°☆☆☆☆☆°~°~°~ SPINNING SCARS AUTHOR: ALEXIA PURDY This book was gifted to me for my honest review. I have read many takes on the story of Frankenstein's Monster but nothing quite like this. Alexia has created a man where the world saw a monster. The story begins where Ruby's parents are murdered and she is thrown into the system, from foster home to foster home until she finally goes to college. She works hard and pays her own way through college. I just love how strong and confident she is when ~°~°~°☆☆☆☆☆°~°~°~ SPINNING SCARS AUTHOR: ALEXIA PURDY This book was gifted to me for my honest review.

The story begins where Ruby's parents are murdered and she is thrown into the system, from foster home to foster home until she finally goes to college. She works hard and pays her own way through college. I just love how strong and confident she is when life has been nothing but hard on her. Matthias is a man of many mysteries and each story has a scar that tells it. When Ruby and Matthias meet in class their lives are drawn to each other. With magic, mystery, paranormal beings and some fantastic romance, this has been an amazing read that I just couldn't put down. My only complaint would be that I wanted more, but I hope to read of them in future books soon. Alexia is a very talented writer with an amazing ability to create worlds that feel so real and characters that really grabs your imagination. Well done!! ~°~°~°☆☆☆☆☆°~°~°~

    I'm not sure if this is a short story or a novella, but it was a rather quick read, so I call it a short story, for now. I was given this work in return for an honest review and that's what I give. Ruby is a hardworking young woman putting herself through college to make something better out of her life and get out of Dodge (or in this case, Reno). While attending a poli-sci class she meets a student she is attracted to and they fall into an incredible relationship. But things are not what they I'm not sure if this is a short story or a novella, but it was a rather quick read, so I call it a short story, for now.

While attending a poli-sci class she meets a student she is attracted to and they fall into an incredible relationship. But things are not what they seem and it seems there's always more to the story. Matthias' story is incredible, but he has the scars to prove it and there is the incredible attraction between the two of them that goes deeper than the "animal attraction" theory. Incredible things start to happen and Ruby and Matthias are suddenly facing some drastic changes and choices in their lives. The writing flows fairly well and I am looking forward to reading more of Ms. Purdy's work. I recommend Spinning Scars as a quick and enjoyable read for adults.

    I received an ARC to give an honest review. I really enjoyed this story even though it is short I wanted more. It did feel a bit rushed at times but I guess when trying to fit a lot within the story it has to be. Matthias is not a normal human he is something more but when he meets Ruby he finds out that he has feelings for her. Ruby seems to be a normal college kid minus the whole not having parents but it seems there is something more to her than meets the eye.

Matthias is being hunted by The Others and The Others know of Ruby and want her safe.Will Matthias open up to Ruby once she sees his scars and what they mean on Matthias or will she run away. This is a great I want to use the word spin but that may not be correct on the story of Frankenstein. Just read the book to know what I am meaning. I would love to see this book go on even further to see what else can go on between these two characters and what not.

    This was a super sweet, simple, cute novella with a happily ever after guaranteed! I loved the unexpected twist that Alexia always manages to sneak into books. Whether I am in the Land Of Fae or living with "creatures" among us, I know I will enjoy the story. I loved how the story started on a tragic note because you see and learn to appreciate how strong Ruby is. I also really enjoyed learning what the scars symbolized and watching the characters develop and grow in that short time frame.

I always hope there will be a full-length novel where I could see these characters develop and dive deeper into the story but overall, I was left with a smile on my face and I believe that is how every story should end!

    I very much enjoyed this exciting new take on an older, well-known story. Alexia Purdy has employed her vast story-telling skills to re-imagine the character of Doctor Frankenstein's creature and expands upon his story. Matthias and Ruby are interesting characters, and a truly beautiful couple, whom I hope we get to hear more from in the near future.

    What a great short story. I love that Rudy could look past Matthias's imperfections and see his true beauty. They found each other and fate found them a way to stay together.
