One of the most important aspects of a story in my opinion, is a strong no holds barred hero. Reyes has the jealous overly possessive caveman vibes in SPADES! This guy is bigger than life! His personality, his aura, that ruthless Bolivian vibe is unapologetically fierce. Don’t mistake Reyes for a wimp due to his less than 6 feet stature. Reyes is lethal. And his oxygen, his heartbeat, his sanity, aka as Casey, is his perfect match! Nikita’s approach and execution of their characteristics.....incomparable! Casey is a warrior and she has the scars to prove it! I swear my lil nosey hind parts couldn’t read fast enough to learn about the scarred Queen! I nearly missed the entire reason for the title I read so hard! Wow just wow! What won’t kill you will only make you stronger....
Kudos to Slater for incorporating a WEALTH of invaluable information regarding a serious medical condition that plague millions of people worldwide: migraines. The wealth of information provided in this story certainly added depth and richness to the overall.
Last but not least, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the intimacy between Reyes and Casey! The physical intimacy deserves its very own song, movie, accolades....SOMETHIN’! In this story, Casey practiced abstinence (gotta read the story to get the story...no spoilers). But when Reyes got ahold to her, woooooohoooo! Reyes put something on her because the next thing I read, Casey was singing the National Anthem in C Sharp falsetto! Now that’s TALENT!
Disclaimer: MY REVIEW is my PERSONAL opinion of this amazing story. My personal opinion should have ZERO INFLUENCE on your experience with the story. SQ is Dark and may not be for everyone. Read at your own risk. Please be kind and leave a honest review if you decide to read this amazing story. Thank you!
Reyes depicts an unforgiving, hard edge man. He is a ruler within the mafia world, fashioned by his upbringing. There are moments you catch glimpses of compassion and wonder if his rigidity and austerity is a facade.
Casey is a virtuous and chaste woman, that is married to a monster of a man. She is just an ornament in a gilded cage. What I admired about Sophia’s character was that although she was a trophy wife, she had an inner strength that broke through and enhanced and elevated the story.
The gradual development of Casey and Reyes’ relationship builds between the two, and provides insight to past and present secrets. Knowledge is power, and Casey gains the control needed to become the queen she was destined to be.
Things I really liked:
Reyes is 100% alpha male and never gets mushy, even over his beloved queen.
Casey's character development feels very natural. She heals, she rises, she overcomes.
The chemistry between the two was super hot.
Things I would have liked to see:
More consistent editing. The typos and grammatical errors were distracting.
A little more backstory, description and development of secondary characters. I appreciate the focus is on Casey and Reyes, but the secondary characters felt cookie-cutter.
Looking forward to more from this author.
Casey... She didn't know about any life other any being a mafia wife. She didn't know what to make of Reyes and the growing feelings she had for him. I loved how throughout the story Casey was starting be Casey. Not the property of her husband. This made my heart happy. She was shining a little more each day. If you, as a reader, want an amazing mafia romance pick up Scarred Queen.
My only MINOR pet peeve was the use of incorrect Spanish. It was so minor it didn't bother me too much just the misspelling of a couple of words but that would have been easily fixed and I don't blame Ms. Slater but the editor that didn't catch it.
