While I really liked Hungry and Dirty, the first two books in this series, I can’t say the same for Torn. Don’t get me wrong, the writing is the same. The characters are the same. It’s just that my empathy for Connie isn’t there any longer. I’m not condoning someone cheating on their significant other, but I understand why Connie cheated on Cliff with Oliver Mellors the first time. I even understand how it could happen. What I don’t understand or get is how she can still say that she loves Cliff, but still continue her affair with Oliver.
The conspiracy between Ivy Bolton, Cliff’s assistant, and Tommy Dukes, the man who wants to take Chatterbox public, continues. This time, they are putting Connie in their sights. Connie is getting more and more in over her head by continuing to have an affair with Oliver. Cliff starts to realize that he isn’t putting enough into their relationship and he really is trying and starting to change. But is it a little too late? Now more than ever, Connie is torn as to what she wants and the person she wants to be.

Torn! This books leaves you torn on whether or not you want Connie to choose passion or love! Cliff tries to save his failing relationship with Connie by glazing over the issues and proposing! BUT! Connie cant get Oliver off her mind and feels so guilty. This book is more than just about infidelity. Logan Belle presents the character in such a way that you can relate emotionally. You may not agree with Connie's choices but no one is perfect! In this installment the side characters Ivy Bolton, Tommy Dukes and Connie's sister Hillary Chatterley play a more up front role. Ivy and Tommy will go to any lengths to further their agenda of getting their claws into Cliff's business! Oh did I mention is there a HOT ménage as well?!
I am looking forward to the last installment!

Logan Belle has written an amazing four part story that had me riveted to my seat until I was done reading. Connie Chatterley is a conflicted character and the writing conveys the emotion realistically making the Connie relatable to the reader even though we may not agree with her actions. She is flawed, but who isn’t. The story speaks to a deep loneliness and the mistakes we make when we don’t communicate effectively with our partners. It speaks to trust in people that only think of their own interests. It speaks to deep relationships as well as ones that are carnal and don’t even touch the surface of emotion. The sexy scenes broke the temperature gage, especially the ones with some of the secondary characters. Overall, I felt I read a fulfilling story with a great balance of elements and nothing in excess. Definitely a writer to follow. I can’t wait to see what’s next for Miss Belle.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

“TORN was at times nail biting but extremely addicting! ” ~Under the Covers
Once you get to this stage of the serial….you’ll be hooked! After the ending of the second part I had to keep going and going and rush to get to the resolution. And honestly, I’m not sure how I felt about any possible outcome. I was torn myself.
Connie has been having an affair with her personal trainer and sometimes that collides with her boyfriend, Cliff. Her previous attempts to get Cliff to pay more attention to her and their relationship had gone unanswered until now. And Cliff now wants to make an effort and make things work.
I loved how the authors portrayed the emotional battle that can happen when people make the conscious decision to continue an affair. There was a reason why it all started and sometimes it can’t be as easy as turning a switch and making it go away. There are consequences to others around them.
TORN was at times nail biting but extremely addicting! I couldn’t help but watch (read) on and when I got to that last page, I turned quickly for the next and final chapter.

WOW!!!! A quick 80 page read, I was hooked with in the first few pages and wasn't let go until I finished part III and that's only because part IV isn't out yet! These books are about the life of Connie and her struggles to move from NYC and a give up something she loves for the man she's "in love" with. And move to CA with no life/family or friends and the man ignoring her in and out of the bed room. Throw in a conniving bee-atch, power hunger money man, the HOTTEST Marine on the planet and screwed up sister and you have one of the best series of novella you will read. PERIOD!
Ms. Belle's story telling is amazing.
Part III Connie and Cliff moving further and further apart. Connie's sister trying to help but does Connie want to save it? Or Does she want the REALLY HOT Marine?!?! They cliff hangers that Ms.Belle leaves you w/is mind blowing!
I normally don't get effect or vested that much into books I guess because series books don't normally effect me this way and certainly I never care when the next one gets released. I have several I've read that part two - three have been released and I haven't even thought about them. But you better believe come June 3rd I'm looking for my pre-ordered of Ms. Chatterely!
