Battlescars by Sophie Monroe {Book Review}


So yesterday I contacted the author of Battlescars and basically begged and pleaded for her to allow me to do a review of her book. I laid my heart on the line to Ms. Monroe.

Ok, so maybe there wasn't much begging. Or pleading. 

But I had heard good things about Battlescars and all my friends were reading her and liking her Facebook page. I wanted to be in the cool club too. 

I got a message back from her this morning. She offered me a review copy. YAY! 

She sent it to me and since I didn't have anything else super important to do - I did what I do best, read! 

Ohmygoodnessgracious!! Eeeeeek! 

Can you tell I liked it? 

Before I go into why I did....let me tell you a little about the book first.




{About the Book}Aubrey Thompson is a twenty-three year old flight attendant for her dad’s small commercial fleet. She’s a sarcastic smartass that has no problem telling you where to go. She also despises rock stars…but that’s all part of the story. Her Granny Jean is spy and will have you laughing out loud. 
In comes Jake Parker, the twenty-five year old lead singer of Battlescars. His reputation is the untamable bad-boy. He’s completely “balls to the wall” in everything that he does. Two days after returning home from a month long tour across Europe he gets a visit from Bruce, an executive from the record label. He informs Jake that Battlescars is going back on tour for three months. What everyone doesn’t know is that Jake is worn down and sick of the same old shit. 
His record label hires Aubrey’s dads company to fly him around for the last minute tour. In order to keep her dad's company afloat they will have to learn to play nice. When Jake first meets Aubrey she refuses to even acknowledge his existence. He sees her as refreshing and a challenge. 
Both of them have some pretty heavy scars from their pasts holding them back. Can Jake get Aubrey to let him in? Or will she shoot him down based on his outlandish reputation? Will her fear of getting hurt again keep him out for good? 
Are the two of them a match in heaven or hell?


So what did I love about it? Ummm, everything? Ok, I know that's not a great answer....let me try.

This book had me laughing so hard. My husband kept looking at me like I was crazy. The corny one-liners ... the way she wrote them into the story...it was excellent. And I cried too. It was an emotional story. Both Jake & Aubrey had a tough past they had to deal with. You could really feel the flirty, fun way they fell for each other. It was also hot. There was a lot of chemistry between the two. Overall, it was just great. I am very excited to read the next book about Aubrey's friend Piper.  

You can grab a copy at Amazon for $2.99 in Kindle format. So what are you waiting for? Go. NOW! ;)
