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.


This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you T. Marie Alexander!

The Lost and the Scarred is the first book in the Kingston City Limits series and tells the story of Rox and Wran!

The Lost and the Scarred is the first book I’ve read by T. Marie Alexander and I really liked it. I’m really glad that T. Marie Alexander messaged me about this book because it was so hard to put down! I wanted to know what was going to happen to our main characters and I’m glad that I read this book!

The Lost and the Scarred is about Rox and Wran, and I’m going to be blunt and say that they’re in a f*cked up relationship. This is not your average Romance story, it’s way darker and twisted. Rox and Wran have been through a lot, and it shows. Because of all the things Wran’s been through, he’s kind of a bully, even towards Rox. I have mixed feelings towards Wran, so I hope he’s going to change a bit!

The Lost and Scarred was such a good book and the characters were so different than I’m used to. This is definitely not a normal Romance story, and that’s not something negative! It makes the story so interesting and hard to put down. I really liked this book and I cannot wait to read the sequel!


  1. OK so this sounds right up my street especially as it sounds pretty dark, fantastic review my lovely!
