Goodreads | Kindle/Amazon

Aubrey Thompson is a twenty-three year old flight attendant for her dad’s small commercial fleet. She’s a sarcastic smartass that has no problem telling you where to go. She also despises rock stars…but that’s all part of the story. Her Granny Jean is spy and will have you laughing out loud.

In comes Jake Parker, the twenty-five year old lead singer of Battlescars. His reputation is the untamable bad-boy. He’s completely “balls to the wall” in everything that he does. Two days after returning home from a month long tour across Europe he gets a visit from Bruce, an executive from the record label. He informs Jake that Battlescars is going back on tour for three months. What everyone doesn’t know is that Jake is worn down and sick of the same old shit.

His record label hires Aubrey’s dads company to fly him around for the last minute tour. In order to keep her dad's company afloat they will have to learn to play nice. When Jake first meets Aubrey she refuses to even acknowledge his existence. He sees her as refreshing and a challenge.

Both of them have some pretty heavy scars from their pasts holding them back. Can Jake get Aubrey to let him in? Or will she shoot him down based on his outlandish reputation? Will her fear of getting hurt again keep him out for good?

Are the two of them a match in heaven or hell?

Jake and Aubrey

Aubrey is a feisty stewardess working for her dad's private company, from Ohio originally. She is dedicated, loyal and does not take crap.

Jake is the lead singer for Battlescars. He was a pary boy with a string of one night stands, drinking and partying all hours of the night. But he decided 1 year ago to give all that up to be a better person. He wanted more out of life than a party.

Aubrey's dad needs her to fly around with Jake and his bodyguard Brett for a 3 month stint. She is not happy. Aubrey has been working non stop and just want to be home in her own bed to rest. Aubrey knows she has to do this to help the company stay afloat. They need some new clients, an entire band would be great income.

She puts Jake in his place day one and Jake is immediately smitten. Jake has his work cut out for him to win Aubrey's trust and heart. Aubrey has been hurt in her one and only relationship and trusts no one. She cannot be touched without flinching and freaking out, she does not date and never plans too.

Jake expresses his feeling sof LIKE to Aubrey and how he wants to be friends. Aubrey is skeptical. Jake says he is not what they portray him to be in the press and he changed the path he was on. Jake wants Aubrey to give friendship a chance. Aubrey decides a friendship would be good since they will be stuck together for at least 3 months.

Aubrey is confused when Jake touches her to catch her when she almost falls and her reaction is not to pull away. This is new territory for Aubrey and she decides to push her boundaries to see the extent of this new crazy friendship. Jake tells Aubrey they are friends for now but he wants her to be his girlfriend and he is willing to wait as long as it takes for her to trust him and make that happen.

Some grammatical errors but not too bad. The characters are fun. Jake is sweet. caring, loving and model hot. Aubrey is feisty, quick witted, stubborn, loyal, guarded and sweet.

Together the couple are opposites that fit perfectly together. Good story line that I'm sure you have seen a million times before nothing new with that. 

Rating: 2 1/2 STARS
