When life leaves you scarred...
Dexter Price hadn’t been the same since the day he lost his family and became scarred. Living with physical and emotional scars made him the angry loner that he was. Never thinking of a future with a family, he worked his life away...until one of his morning...
Elena Collins had her own scars that left her distant and all alone. A run in the park changed everything. After being knocked down by a careless bicyclist, she received a helping hand up from a man who she only knew from afar, but who had an important part to play in her past.
Their scars kept them from others, but brought them together. Can how they got them tear them apart?
It's no big secret that I love OTT possessive heroes and Dexter Price hit the nail on the head in Scarred. As soon as he met Elena he knew she was the one and he did everything in his power to find her again and make her his... Even after he learned about the history they shared.
Not only was Dexter a perfect hero, but he was paired up with a great heroine. Elena hasn't exactly had an easy life but she didn't let Dexter bulldoze her which I really loved. She stood up to him and put her foot down, even if she did cave in the end.
Of course we had some hot sex scenes in this one along with Dexter's need to breed Elena and make it so she can never leave him but I personally loved the history these two shared, even if they had never technically met before that day in the park. It just goes to show you that even if you have hurdles to overcome, if you want it bad enough, you can make it work.
I'm not gonna lie, I've read a few C.M. Steele books in the past and it's never exactly been love but after reading Scarred I can honestly say that I'm excited to see what she comes up with next.
Now she's living her dream of creating characters she loves and sharing them with other readers. She's had moments of doubt and disappointment, but the voices in her head want their stories told, so she must go on. The voices are always naughty, bossy males. She knows they are never to be resisted so she must comply and tell their tales.
