Timber Nelson has recently returned home after serving two tours in Iraq. Suffering from PTSD, he’s a shadow of the man he was before his time in the military. Instead of learning to live with the nightmares he faced in the war, he drowns them in a bottle of Crown.
Katherine Pierce is an alluring woman with dark brown hair, tattoos, and a fiery attitude. Yet her history is one full of disturbing images that she’s been trying to run away from for the better part of six years.
Undeniable attraction between Timber and Kat reaches its peak and they both give in to the unquestionable pull.
Will Timber be able to save Kat from her past repeating itself?
And will they be able to soothe each other’s scars? Or will their old scars become new wounds?
Review ~ by Shelly
I rate this book 5 ++++++++ stars!!!!!
I cannot express how much this book has meant to me! It has overtaken the spot of #1 on my favorite stand alone novel EVER!!! Stacy Borel is AMAZING!!! How she took these characters and made them so incredibly deep and structured is out of this world!!! It amazes me that there aren't many other reviews up about this book!! WHAT ARE YOU ALL WAITING FOR!!! GRAB THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!!! YOU WILL FOREVER BE IN MY DEBT!!!
Ok…now that, that was said, let me tell you about Timber Nelson! HOLY S*#T!!!! He has to be the hottest book boyfriend ever!! Stacy's muse for Timber is the up and coming model/comedian, Joshua McCann. Timber is sex personified. He just finished a tour in the military, where he has seen his entire crew, his brothers for better lack of a word, die right in front of his eyes and he was the only survivor. This has left him hurt and broken inside, because he internalizes it, and blames himself for their deaths.
Katherine Pierce, aka Kat, recognized the tall, dark, handsome, sexy man that walked into the bar she works at , as the only boy in high school that she thought was decent. She even had a crush on him back then. Only reason she always kept her distance from him was because he was Adam's best friend. And any friend of Adam's was NOBODY she wanted anything to do with.
They played it off, as they didn't recognize each other, but that didn't last very long. They became fast friends, but the chemistry between them was not to be denied!!! They avoided talk of the past as much as they could until the past finally caught up with them.
This book has everything that as a romance reader you want in a book!! It has lust and love, friends and enemies, good times and hard times, drama and angst….IT HAS IT ALL!!! I have ugly cried before when reading books, but this one, sigh…this one really got to my heart!! I don't think I have ever been so emotionally attached to a book before.
I cannot express how much everyone IN THE WORLD needs to read this book!! Touching Scars by Stacy Borel is literary gold!!!!!
