Battle Scars

"So I take it I'm not getting any tonight?" That WOULD be the first thing he says to me when he finds out we're locked in a room together. So even with "No" for an answer, how is it I find myself in bed with him, falling harder with every passing second?

Annie Thinks: If you have not read this one-shot, you are missing out. With just over 8,000 words and over 200 reviews, it's easy to see why it's so popular. It's about a girl named Amy who is very kind and sweet and relatable. She's dragged to a party by her friend at popular golden boy Tristan Davidson's house, but it's not him she is interested in. Amy has never cared for Tristan the way the other girls have; she has always been more intrigued by Tucker, who is often overlooked in favor of his more outgoing brother. Anyway, the party isn't what Amy expected it to be. Girls are paired off with guys and forced to spend the night together--for better or for worse. Although this wasn't terribly realistic, it was sort of necessary to the storyline, and for that it is forgivable.

I loved the characters. Tucker was likable in an oh-my-gosh-you're-insufferable kind of way. He was that cliche bad boy arrogant type, but he had a deep, soft side that set him apart. Amy was a good character too, but sometimes it seemed as though she tried too hard to prove to Tucker that she's not like other girls, even saying, "Yes, well, I'm not like most girls," which, in my experience, is what "most girls" say. She redeemed herself by showing compassion and care for Tucker, though, in a believable way.

Battle Scars was a very sweet, original story that I thought was written perfectly. It had a few mistakes in grammar, which was sometimes distracting. However, the flow of the sentences and voice was more than enough to make up for it. It was a beautiful, believable read that was the perfect length and it was fluffy without being shallow.
