Everyone thinks they know my story now, but they know nothing.

All I want is to blend into the background.

To become invisible like I once was.

Like I prefer.

Harley is my only salvation in dealing with the backlash my father cultivated.

That is until I’m offered something I can’t turn down.

Something that has me questioning everything I was taught to be.

Something that could cost me Harley forever.

Possessive. Impulsive. A hothead.

Everyone thinks they know my story. For the most part, they do. I’m all those things and more.

And that’s exactly how I like it.

It worked for me in the past. It kept people from diving in too deep.

But I can’t go on like this anymore.

I can’t keep hurting the one girl that has been my rock.

I need help.

Or I’m going to lose her forever.


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

The Saved and the Sorry is the second book in the Kingston City Limits series and continues the story of Rox and Wran!

I remember really liking The Lost and the Scarred, it was the first time that I’ve read a book by T. Marie Alexander and the story really surprised me. I really liked that the characters and the story were a bit different than I was used to and it was just so interesting. However, I don’t have the same feelings for The Saved and the Sorry.

For some reason I couldn’t really get into the story and the characters were often annoying or I just couldn’t understand their actions. I have mixed feelings about this book because I like the concept in general and the first book was good, but for some reason I didn’t enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed reading the first book.

The Saved and the Sorry was a bit of a frustrating read. There were a few times that characters acted in a certain way and I just couldn’t enjoy reading about it. There were a few things that I really liked about this book such as Wran going to therapy, that was really realistic and I liked that he wanted to do something about his behaviour. But besides the few negative points, I’m still looking forward to the third and final book in the series!
