Battleshipped by Savannah Scott is a closed-door second-chance contemporary romance and the second book in the Getting Shipped! series. I listened to the audiobook, which clocks in at nine and a half hours and is narrated by Amy McFadden and Will Damron with an alternating first-person point-of-view.
Laura and Rob dated when they were in high school, but he broke up with her right before going off to college at MIT. Now they’re twenty-three and Rob runs a successful science YouTube channel, while Laura is a hairdresser at the local salon.
This could probably be read as a standalone, but we do get some progression to the plot of the couple from the first book in the series, Lexi and Trevor, that was really charming to see.
I feel like the title of this book is a little misleading, since this isn’t really enemies-to-lovers. It’s more like exes who are civil with each other but mostly avoid each other to friends to lovers. I was a little disappointed there, as enemies-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes. I was also a little confused to Laura’s thought processes at times.
It was great to see more of Aiden’s personality shine through here, and apparently the third book in the series focuses on him so I’ll have to check out where his plot line goes.
Tropes in this book include: childhood sweethearts, second-chance, small town
CW: parental infidelity
