Review and Giveaway: Battlescars by Sophie Monroe

4 star review by Guest Reviewer Jennifer Hagen

Jake is a rock star but not the rock star that the media portrays him to be.  He is not a womanizer, he doesn’t do drugs, rarely drinks, gives large donations and visits soup kitchens and hospitals, and he hasn’t had sex in a year. 

Aubrey is a flight attendant for her father’s private charter plane.  She is a 23 y/o virgin who has a strong opinion and isn’t afraid to vocalize it.  Her last relationship was 5 years ago and it was with a rock star who ended up in jail after trying to kill her.  The last thing she wants is another relationship with one.

Jake hires a private plane to travel between shows and he is instantly attracted to Aubrey because of her sarcasm and the fact that she isn’t drawn to his rock star status.  Jake really wants her as his girlfriend but knows that Aubrey is not ready.  He is willing to wait for her and will be a friend. 

Both Jake and Aubrey have personal demons from their past.  Jake’s fear is abandonment and Aubrey’s is fear of trusting and getting hurt.  Aubrey decides that she will try a relationship with Jake.  What happens next is a whirlwind romance.   Don’t underestimate the previous boyfriend’s infatuation with Aubrey.   He is out of jail and intent on finishing what he started 5 years ago.   

The love between Jake and Aubrey may have happened quickly, but it’s deep.  I found it to be a refreshing romance.

“It was the times when I was away from him that I knew we were meant to be together. I couldn’t imagine life without Jake. He helped me. He helped me heal.  He makes me want to be a better person. He gives me strength when I don’t have any.  He makes me feel complete.”

Besides the love and suspense, there are humorous one-liners throughout the book.  Plus there’s a funny granny in the family!

“Good thing I have my library card, ‘cause I’m checking you out.”
