Blurb : 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 : “Touching Scars” was my first book by Stacy Borel and I really liked her writing style. Usually I am always hesitating a little when a story sounds like a second chance/friends to lovers novel in its Blurb. However, I was happy to find out that this was neither – it was more a enemy to lover story (and not even that fully). I liked the way the background story was told to the reader, which is often a moot point for me because I am not a fan of long “Then/and /now” switching chapters. I only like them if they tell me something new and not the fact that the “titanic is sinking” (If you get what I mean) I loved the building relationship between Kat and Timber and the author really made me want to do more than a little beat up on Adam. The secondary charters of the story were also pretty great.
In total a really recommendable book
