Fresh off tour Blake Potter, the sexy bassist for Battlescars, is in Smithville, Ohio to work on their next album ‘Coming Clean’. Still pining after Aubrey’s best friend, Piper, it’s going to be harder than he expected to see her back with her long-term boyfriend, Cole. He’s trying his hardest to forget her, but no matter how hard he tries to stay away circumstances keep bringing them together. Being burned before, he refuses to let it happen again. He’s still struggling to let go of Rowan, the girl that made him the way he is.
Piper is fighting an uphill battle of her own. She’s working her ass off trying to make a name for herself as a tattoo artist. Her long-term boyfriend, Cole, was recently discharged from the Marines turning her world in a way that she never expected. When he begins leaving for days at a time Piper starts struggling to help him pick up the pieces. She calls the one person that might be able to help, Blake. He becomes the friend that she needs no matter how much it’s killing him.
What will happen when one phone call changes everything for both of them leading them in a path that neither anticipated? Pasts will come out of the shadows and threaten to ruin everything.
I love this series. Afflicted is book 2 in the Battlescars series. We get to catch up with the characters from Battlescars in Afficted.
Afflicted is completely different to Battlescars. In Battlescars I laughed on nearly every page and although there is still plenty of laughs in Afflicted, it's more heart warming. The struggles Blake and Piper go through to get their HEA is so sad.
Piper had been with Cole for so long that she just keeps wanting to try to keep what they used to have. Blake has been burned in the past by an ex so he tries to keep his heart safe but he can't when it comes to Piper and he keeps getting it broken again and again.
When Piper finally makes her decision everything goes wrong. She runs. Blake chases.
This is a story that will pull on your heart strings and stay there for ages afterwards. Through the tears, laughs, hurt and love you will be taken on a rollercoaster ride.
I love this book and highly recommend to everyone.
