The Lost and the Scarred by T. Marie Alexander is a YA/NA Contemporary Romance between second-chance best friends.
When I was six, Wran Belmont found me buried in snow and gave me a place to live.
He became my best friend.
When I was fifteen, I gave him all of me—only for him to abandon me.
Now, he’s back and expecting the lost, scarred girl he’s left behind. I’m not that girl anymore. And while I may still have secrets, it will not be as easy for him to retrieve them this time around.
When I was eleven, my father lost his job and became a pathetic excuse for a father. A few months later I found Roxanna Raine buried in snow, barely hanging on to life.
Her father was the reason mine was an alcoholic, and I thought about letting her freeze to death.
One look in her eyes and she became my kryptonite. I swore I would get my revenge, though, even if it was on the fair-skinned beauty.
When I was nineteen, I left Rox without an explanation—broken-hearted and even more lost.
Now, I’m back and I’ll do anything to make up for the stolen time.”
Ready for complex characters stuck in a darker, dramatic situation?
This book was super intriguing for me. The synopsis immediately took me by storm, and I had to read to see where it landed.
We are introduced into a little bit of a shadow-filled world where each of the characters have more to each other than the friendship turned for the worse.
Trauma, both emotional and physical, lead them together in a positive and sometimes negative direction. It’s one of those books that consumes you until you’re finished learning everything you can.
It’s a great read that I gave 3 out of 5 stars.
