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?

This is my second book from Steele — I find her quickie, insta love stories entertaining. Scarred is a modern day Beauty and the Beast. It’s over the top with an alpha man that doesn’t want to give up control. Fear and insecurity bring him to the breaking point when he thinks he’s lost his woman. I really liked Dexter’s character, who doesn’t like that damaged man who just wants to be loved? Elena… well, she didn’t really do it for me at first, but by the time we get to the epilogue she had won me over.
Overall, the read is enjoyable. Lots of hot steamy smut and a sweet, albeit slightly overwhelming, alpha hero with a wounded heart and more love to give than even he realizes.
