Two little, pink lines should have been a good thing, but for Kendall Wright, it felt like the end of the world. Especially when her career as a successful romance novelist had only just begun to take off.

But with the acceptance of her flaky boyfriend, and the help of a friendly bartender, she begins to see how those two little, pink lines could actually be a blessing.

Except pregnancy isn’t always what it’s cut out to be, and sometimes, things can take a turn for the worst when you least expect it. And after an emergency C-section, the premature birth of her son, and the loss of that flaky boyfriend, Kendall begins the hard, rewarding, and oftentimes traumatic life of NICU parenthood alone.

But soon, she realizes that, where there is darkness, there is usually light.

And there are always friendly—and very attractive—bartenders.

Review by Jen Skewes

I couldn't wait to read this book.  Knowing Ms. Kingsley's story I knew how real and emotional this story would be.  And it was emotional, but it was also sweet and funny.  Because despite the obstacles the Kenny faced, she still kept her sarcastic sense of humor through it all.  and that is what I loved.  It was not all hearts and unicorns, but also not all doom and gloom either.  The peer blend of both.  It made you smile, laugh, swoon and broke your heart at times.  

Kenny is 35 years old living in a small apartment in New York City.  She just found out that she is pregnant and somehow ends up at a bar, contemplating how she will tell her boyfriend and what is the next step from here.  While sitting at the bar sipping her water she meets the Goose, the owner of the bar.  Right away there is this connection between them, their conversation is one of ease and comfort.  But he has a girlfriend and Kenny has a boyfriend and expecting.  Not really the best time to go after the sext bartender.  

Kenny's boyfriend, Brendan is a bit of a flake but also a complete douche in my opinion.  He freaks out when he finds out that she is pregnant,  Wanting the baby one minute and ready to walk away the next.  His flip flopping back and forth drove me insane.  When Kenny's baby has to be delivered early, she is left with not knowing whether or not he will survive.  She is faced with a long tough road ahead, and the one person she can count on is Goose.  Brendan is at some point out of the picture but that was completely ok with me.  It left room for sexy Goose to step in.  Will their amazing friendship turn into something more? 

There was so much that I loved about this book but I think it was the friendship and connection between Kenny and Goose that I loved the most.  From the moment they met it was as if they had known each other forever.  There was such an ease to the conversations.  I loved how much he was there for her, even as just a friend.  And how she called him when she needed someone to lean on.  Goose has his own past where he fought his own demons.  He understands the emotions that Kenny is going through more than anyone.  It was so beautiful to watch their friendship grow into something more

Scars and Silver Linings was beautiful story about courage, strength and fight.  Kenny wasn't just fighting her own emotions, she was fighting for her son and Goose was right there with her.  This story was so real, and filled Sith so many emotions.  I admired Kenny so much, just for the  amount of strength showed alone.  There were times when she broke down and wasn't sure how to be strong, but she somehow found a way.  She never gave up.  Goose can into her life at the perfect time.  He truly was the perfect person for her.  He was kind, understanding, loving and it helped that he was sexy.  

I loved this book.  and I loved the ending even more, especially seeing how close their blended little family was.  Just perfect.
