*REVIEW* Asher's Mark by Amy Durham

Reviewer: Donna
Rating: 4 Stars

Asher's Mark is about a love between two people that's forgotten after on of them moves away. 

Asher and Grace meet in high school. Grace is a Junior and Asher is a Senior with not long until he graduates. Asher is moving to Flagstaff to start his first year at college but he has a whole summer before he has to go and he spends it getting to know Grace. When Asher leaves for college, they are both utterly in love with one another but at that time, it just isn't supposed to be. Grace is left behind and Asher stops speaking to her and contacting her at all. Asher's brother, Adam is there for Grace when Asher isn't. He is loveable but a bit of a player but a year after Asher moved, Adam asks Grace out and they date for 10 months until Adam dies.

This brings Asher back home for Adam's funeral and to see his mum and of course, Grace. The attraction is still there between Asher and Grace but Asher can't help feeling guilty for having feelings for his brother's girlfriend. Grace is keeping secrets about her actual relationship with Adam and doesn't know to tell people the truth about her and Adam It's a very complicated mess!

Really enjoyable to read and i kind of read it a bit too quickly.Mainly because it was exciting to see where Grace and Asher's relationship was going to. It's a young love which is very up and down but their feelings are very over the top so it's a definite teenage love in this story. It was very pleasant to read and a very subtle read that was nice to read on a Sunday afternoon. I do love this author and will be happy to read more from her. Great Read!

Grace Ballard has been in love with Asher Howell for a long time. When she was sixteen, he became her hero, and she fell head over heels for the boy with a ring through his eyebrow, a big heart, and an unending sense of justice. But two years ago he left for college without a backward glance, leaving Grace to wonder if she'd imagined everything. 

With no reason to wait for Asher to return, Grace moved on, and Asher's brother, Adam, stepped in to help her pick up the pieces. But Asher never left her thoughts... or her heart. 

Now, two years later, tragedy brings Asher home and back into Grace's life. The boy who left her behind is now very much a man - a licensed tattoo artist, much to his parents' dismay, and still carrying a major torch for Grace. But two years apart has changed them both, and the things that happened during their separation may create a divide that can't be crossed. 

Asher and his brother both left their mark on Grace's heart. Will Asher's be able to stand the test of time?
