ARC Review ~ The Scarred Prince by Aubrey Rose

~ Categories ~ Paranormal Romance, Shapeshifters, Wolves

~ Blurb ~ 

Every alpha has scars. That’s how they get to be the alpha.

The Scarred Prince is only a rumor. A whisper. A shadow. Nobody believes that he really exists, or that he does the things that they say he does: keeping females as slaves and mutilating members of his own pack. He’s just a a character in a story to frighten young cubs before bedtime.

Until now.

Kinaya has spent the last eighteen years living in her twin brother’s shadow. Blaise is always the favorite: stronger, faster, more handsome. The fighter. Everyone says he’ll make a good alpha once his father steps down.

But on the night of their birthday feast, a mysterious warrior arrives, a messenger from a rival pack. He’s stronger and bigger than any wolf Kinaya has ever seen. His message: Surrender, or war.

While her brother prepares for battle, Kinaya slips away to see the captive warrior. As she struggles with her strange attraction to him, she realizes that the only sure way to bring peace to the rival packs will come at a cost - and she is the one who will have to pay the price. But can she marry a brutal conqueror, even to save her pack?

~ My Review ~ 4 STARS ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Kinaya comes across as immature and overprotected in the first half of the book. I wasn’t sure that I would like her at first but as the story progressed her strength of character started to emerge and I started to enjoy her progression.

Her twin brother Blaise I couldn’t get connected to as his immaturity though perfect for his age and the storyline annoyed me. I really tried to like him and give him a break but he needs to mature up some before he should be made Alpha. I do think his character will round out and mature in the next book.

But Alekk the messenger from the Scarred Prince really got my attention. I loved his mysterious character and how he refused to give out any information. There was something so hard about him that it was scary. Yet I could feel he was intrigued with Kinaya and as rough as he was with her I think he was holding back quite a bit from his usual actions.

The ending leads into the next book and creates a need to know how Kinaya and the Scarred Prince deal with her wedding proposition. And even more important where Alekk fits into the scenario.

This book is a quick read and an interesting storyline. I give it 4 stars and am heading over to read the next book Bride to the Alpha.

I was gifted this ARC by the author for an honest opinion
