☆HAPPY PUBLICATION DAY!!☆
Corporal David Conrad has life figured out. His job gives him power, control, and access to Top Secret operations. His looks have tempted plenty of women into his bed, and he has no intention of committing to a relationship.
When Ketty Smith joins the Home Forces, Conrad sets his sights on the new girl – but pursuing Ketty will be more dangerous than he realises. Is Conrad about to meet his match? And will the temptations of his job distract him from his target?
The Battle Ground Series is set in a dystopian near-future UK, after Brexit and Scottish independence. Spoiler warning: Balancing Act is a tie-in novel in the series, revisiting the events of Darkest Hour, Fighting Back, and Victory Day. It is suitable for older teens and adult readers.

Balancing Act by Rachel Churcher is a tie-in novel in the Battle Ground series, so it is important to read the rest of the books to really get the most out of this story.
When I heard Rachel Churcher was releasing a new Battle Grounds book, I jumped at the opportunity to read. I’ve absolutely loved this series up to this point. Good news, this far exceeded my expectations!! I’m in love with the writing style and pacing. I was hooked from the beginning and didn’t set this down until I finished the last page.
Balancing Act is told from a different perspective than the previous novels, but we revisit events from them. I thought this was really clever. Reading from Conrad’s perspective was interesting. He’s cocky and knows what he wants. I thought his point of view was intriguing to read.
Overall, Balancing Act was an excellent addition to one of my favorite dystopian series. I highly recommend the entire series, and if you’re caught up, don’t skip Balancing Act. It is well-paced, wonderfully written, with a new look on familiar events. Check it out!
Thank you to author, Rachel Churcher for the copy of Battle Ground to honestly review. All opinions are my own and unbiased.

Rachel Churcher was born between the last manned moon landing, and the first orbital Space Shuttle mission. She remembers watching the launch of STS-1, and falling in love with space flight, at the age of five. She fell in love with science fiction shortly after that, and in her teens she discovered dystopian fiction. In an effort to find out what she wanted to do with her life, she collected degrees and other qualifications in Geography, Science Fiction Studies, Architectural Technology, Childminding, and Writing for Radio.
She has worked as an editor on national and in-house magazines; as an IT trainer; and as a freelance writer and artist. She has renovated several properties, and has plenty of horror stories to tell about dangerous electrics and nightmare plumbers. She enjoys reading, travelling, stargazing, and eating good food with good friends – but nothing makes her as happy as writing fiction.
Her first published short story appeared in an anthology in 2014, and the Battle Ground series is her first long-form work. Rachel lives in East Anglia, in a house with a large library and a conservatory full of house plants. She would love to live on Mars, but only if she’s allowed to bring her books.
