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?
This book is a stand alone.
Review by Brittany
Okay, so I have heard a lot about Stacy Borel, so when I was asked to review her book for her, I was excited. It took me a while to finally get to it, but once I did, I neglected all my other responsibilities until I finished this one.
Katherine Pierce was bullied in high school. Not just bullied, but raped. No one knew though, because the thought of her attacker coming for her scared her.
Katherine moved to Port O’Connor, Texas to try and leave those memories behind. She shortened her name to Kat, changed her hair, got rid of her glasses, and got some tattoos. She was never able to hold a relationship, though. The fear of anyone touching her sexually freaked her out.
Timber Nelson went to the same high school as Katherine, only he was two years ahead of her. He entered the Army as soon as he graduated, and spent three years in combat. When he and his team were tricked into an IED explosion, Timber was the only one that survived. He has to live with those memories and some things can trigger them, sending him into a whole different world.
When Timber moves to Port O’Connor for work, it takes a few months before he finds Kat. Not knowing who she was at first, he was interested in her. He wanted to know her. But once he figured out who she was, that interest piqued, and he would do anything to have her.
Kat didn’t want Timber to get close to her. She was afraid of a relationship. Nothing could stop it though, and she fell for him.
This book has heart-stopping moments, literally. There were points where I stopped breathing, clutching my kindle, crying for everything to be okay. And it was, eventually. But we had to get through all the bad parts first.
I love Stacy Borel now. I am definitely going to be checking out her other works soon. She has an amazing writing style. The story line flowed really well; I was never bored. Her characters are all amazing, even Mel and Beaver, Kat’s best friends. Timber and Kat have an amazing relationship, one that is so beautiful. I wish I could know them in real life.
I also love how these characters have real problems. The challenges they face are things that could definitely happen in real life. Well, it might be rare, but it could happen. I love the description that she uses with Timber’s flashback to the Army scenes. I felt like I was there with him.
While there were some grammar errors, it didn’t detract from the story. There is definitely some humor thrown into the mix, as well. Wait until you read about Mel and her ex-husband’s experience with duct tape. *giggles*
Five stars for Stacy Borel and Touching Scars! I loved it! I hope there’s more Timber and Kat soon! If not, I definitely wanna read about Mel and Beaver!
About Stacy Borel
I'm a Coast Guard wife and currently a stay at home mom. I want to be a nurse when I "grow up." My incredibly handsome husband and I have been married for 9 years and I have 2 amazing children that keep life interesting.
I am an obsessive reader.
I go through 3-5 books a week on my Kindle and I whole-heartedly support my indie authors. After reading well over a couple hundred books this year, I decided I might give it a shot writing my own book. I dabbled with a few ideas and finally settled on a story I know I'd personally read and I began the journey of creating Ever Enough.
I appreciate all the support I've been given by my family, friends, and fellow indie authors. You've all shaped my view on life and books and I'll be forever greatful!
