Publication Date: December 18, 2013
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-a 5 Fang book review. I received this book as a gift from Stacy Borel and “Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock” for an honest review. Katherine was a nerd in high school. Even though she ran track, she never really fit in. Her sophomore year was the worst. That’s when Adam decided to take his harassment to the next level.

Timber was good looking, and a jock, but that was all he really had in common with his friends on the football team, and Adam. Timber’s parents were hardworking, honest people. His mother worked at the local elementary school, and his dad was the town sheriff. And although they weren’t poor, Timber didn’t have fancy cars or the new gadgets that Adam had. His friends teased any kid in school that wasn’t good looking or athletic. Katherine fit that description; she wasn’t ugly, but she wasn’t a knock out either. Adam seemed to take special pleasure in making her world a living hell.

Fast forward 6 years. Katherine has tried to escape her home town and the threat that followed her all through her high school career. Out in the middle of nowhere she feels a little safer. But she still looks over her shoulder. Timber is home after serving two tours in Iraq. He goes home to his father’s house where he tries to drown the sounds of war and men dying in a bottle of whiskey every night. After a couple of weeks, he decides he needs to get out of his father’s house and on his own. He hears about a job out in the oil and gas fields of Texas, and starts to work. One day after work, he finds himself in a dive called The Hole. He never thought his life would change with that one visit. Two broken people, each needing something from the other, but not knowing what.

I couldn’t put this book down! When I picked it up the first time, I read the first 12 chapters in one sitting. The characters are so real. You can see her long dark wavy hair, and picture the crystal blue of his eyes. I connected emotionally with both of them. Stacy Borel takes you into the mind of a veteran suffering PTSD, and feel his panic when he hears fireworks. You experience Katherine’s fear of being with a man and being touched. The story flows effortlessly from page to page. I know it’s a good book when it plays out in my mind like a movie. This is one of the best “love” stories I’ve read. Not mushy, not stilted, but real. Real life. I put myself into the book and was sad when I finished it. I plan to pick up the Enough Series-Ever Enough (book 1) and Always Enough (book 2).
