My Thoughts <3:
Sophie Monroe never ceases to amaze me with her books! From the first time I got to ARC Second Chance Romance I have been a HUGE fan! Again with Battlescares and now Afflicted I love her books even more!
Afflicted is the story of Blake Potter. He isn’t your typical rock star. He’s not a love ’em & leave ’em kinda guy…. well he use to not be. He is a good guy that has had his heart broken, but yet still life goes on.
Piper is a fiery red head that Blake has been eying. There’s a crazy ex-boyfriend or boyfriend in and out of the picture. Honestly, my ❤ goes out to Piper. She doesn’t deserve the shit she faces, but then again… she could just walk away.
Blake and Piper are hot together, and I mean volcano erupting or FIRE for each other hot! They can’t keep their hands off each other and when they are being stubborn as hell they are miserable!
The biggest questions that they face is will they survive? Will Piper choose the crazy ex-boyfriend? How does the past keep interfering with the future?
Afflicted is a hot and steamy read will have you begging for Conflicted, Derek’s story! I have to say that I am a die hard country music fan, but when it comes to books I don’t care if they are country, rock, R&B, or Rap… just give me a beat and a love story … & I’m hooked!
