Overview

Highly recommended to read the novella "With You" first.

Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn't doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.

Kidnapped.
Starved.
Beaten.
I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me.

I was wrong.

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years.

This is a love story with some dark elements. Dark contemporary romance. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story (the band's lead guitarist).

    Worst hero ever. EVER


    ## WORST. HERO. EVER.

    I don't care who his guy is (the devil himself?), there is NO WAY any woman would get back together with a man who not only delivered her to sex traffickers but stood by and watched her get whipped, water boarded, starved and sexually assaulted and did nothing to stop it. He even walked away when they put a gun to her head. He treats her worse than dirt, makes her his sex slave and to top it off mentally abuses her as well. And we are to believe that while in captivity she still desires him? Ugh.

    Then he has the audacity to show up two years later: "I did it to protect you", "I love you, baby". Are you freaking kidding me ?? He should've broken cover much sooner or not even delivered her in the first place. Just because he had a shi*ty childhood we're supposed to forget these heinous acts and humiliation he put the heroine through? Uh, hell no.

    I would've killed this guy if I'd ever seen him again. Literally killed him. DEAD. By any means necessary.

    Omg, these reviews are ridiculous. The heroine is TSTL and the guy is absolutely no hero. This book is in no way romantic.

    You know, I'll be honest. I really wasn't sure if this would be

    You know, I'll be honest. I really wasn't sure if this would be a book I would love. I'm not too much into the "dark" sort of thing. Not that I like sunshine and rainbows. Well, yeah so maybe I do. Hey, whatever. At any rate, I wasn't too sure if this would be the book for me going into it, but I couldn't put it down! There's different shifts in tone, light to dark then dark to light. It totally sucked me in. I HAD to know what was going to happen with the main characters. I had to know why Logan would do something so horrible to Emily. Why he wouldn't help her. Why? Why? I had to know. Ms. Rose definitely has a talent for hooking the reader, because that's exactly what I was the entire time. I didn't even care the book was written in first person. Another thing I tend to not really gravitate toward in books.

    Speaking of first person, the deep point of view seen through Emily's eyes was great. You really got the full effect of all her emotions. Very well done in my opinion.

    Now Logan...that dang Logan. I thought I was going to have to hate that dude until I read further. Then I was in fictional love with the man.

    Heck, I'm even emotionally invested in the secondary characters. I'm not above admitting I might have contacted the author and begged for teasers for the next book in the series. Because I HAVE to know. I can not wait to read the next book in this series.

    Overall, I thought this was a great book. It's well written and entertaining. Pretty much, I'm sold on this series. As long as the author writes it, I'll read it.

    ¿You need to fear me, not hate me." This book deserves a


    “You need to fear me, not hate me."

    This book deserves a fabulous review but I just can't write one. Anything I try to write will fail to convey how much I loved not only this story but the journey these two characters travel together. It's difficult to say anything without giving something away and Torn from You is the type of book where the ultimate beauty of the story is in the discovery.

    Here is what I will say: I've read over 300 books in 2013 and Torn from You is one of the top ten books I've read for the year. From start to finish, this book was AMAZING! It had a story line I didn't see coming, solid writing, and a romance that captured me from the beginning. It's shocking, unexpected, sexy...

    There is something in this book for everyone.

    Hot sex? Check! Underground Fighter? Check! Does he ride a bike? Check! Musician/Rocker? Check! Dominating/Alpha Hero? Check! Dark/ Edgy? Check! A supporting cast of characters that you can't wait to read more of? Check! Check! Check!

    I should admit, I normally don't read many books with dark story lines. I'm a little bit of a wimp. I've read a handful but I normally get sweaty palms and start cringing if things get too "dark". That being said, I have no idea what in the world made me pick up this book after reading the blurb. I think it was these two lines

    "When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me.

    I was wrong."

    I mean, that sounds like a total mind ____ and it totally was! But page after page I kept reading. I had to find out...why? At 4AM I was still up. Where in the heck was this going? How would this end? I had no idea how the author could get from point A to point B...at what point do you give up on redemption and realize all is lost?

    "I can't erase you. I tried, but I can't."

    "You can't erase what's engraved."

    I strongly recommend reading the very short novella, With You, before you read this book. The novella provides the background of the two main characters and describes how they met and how their relationship develops. I can see why the author says it's not necessary, but I thinks it sets up the whole story line for Torn from You and is a must read. The novella aside, Torn from You is a stand-alone novel. Overwhelmed for You will be the second book in the Tear Asunder series and is scheduled for release sometime in 2014. Overwhelmed for You will be Reams story and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Going to the very top of my MUST READ IMMEDIATELY list!

    I LOVED THIS BOOK! I LOVED THE STORY! FIVE FREAKING AMAZING STARS!!

    Nashoda Rose: Yesterday I didn't know who you were. Last night I picked up your book and you proceeded to ROCK MY FREAKING WORLD! I mean seriously, LOVED this book! LOVED these characters! I am delirious with love for you!

    Thanks to Netgalley and the author for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Better story needs a better description before consider buying

    I only got to page 41 then i couldn't stomach it anymore. That was the point at which the human trafficing and all the gruesome details it entails became too much, i didn't want to continue reading the story. When i read the synopsis is the book it didn't mention anything about human trafficing and it should have.

    4.75 Stars




    Wow this was one Eff'ed up book. Talk about an emotional roller coaster. What Emily went through was horrific not just because of the actual acts but the betrayal BROKE HER.  There is so much I could tell you about Torn From you, but if I did I would be taking a lot of the ummph out of you discovering the many facets that are Torn from You. Unthinkable circumstances, and all the while I was BEGGING to be let into Sculpts head, I had no idea what the EFF was going to happen. That is not something that happens very often to me. What I can and will tell you if you enjoyed books like Captive in the Dark and Consequences or Tears of Tess then I don't see you NOT enjoying Torn from You, NOW those of you who have yet to give books like these a try I would say to start with this one it gives you just enough of everything that it would be a good one to start with.

    I hate it when people give away everything there is to know abou

    I hate it when people give away everything there is to know about a book, especially a pivotal part of book like a major twist.  That happened to me with this book, so I won't do that in this review.  I will just tell you that this is an amazing book from an up and coming writer.  I can't wait to read more books by her.  The story line was original and the characters were real in their emotions and flaws.  It is dark and does deal with some deep issues.  I will tell you that when you get to these parts to just push through and you will be rewarded.  I liked that this book has no cliffhanger.  It is going to be part of a series, but if you are ones of those readers who like just novels, not sets of books then you can get by with just reading this book.  Everything is solved with these characters in this book.  I hope you choose to give this book a chance, because you will be glad you did.

    Wow! Awsome book.

    This book has every thing i look for in a romance book. Sexy take control alfa male, love that can beat all odds and hot steamy ramance. All rapped up in a very well writen story. What made this book even better was the dark edgy plot that made this book so much more interesting then the books i usually read.

    It's Dark but very good.

    This is a very difficult, gut -wrenchingly emotional book. I was flinching during some of the scenes, but the story from beginning to end was a great concept. The darkness ,stays throughout the book, but somehow eases a bit for sculpt and emily .Once she learns to trust again.
    I wish i knew the other charators stories. Like kat and ream's or raven and kai's.
    I'd also really like the full picture of what raul did to logan after he helped emily escape . We only got bits and pieces.

    3.5 Enjoyable Stars! I wasn't sure what to expect goi

    3.5 Enjoyable Stars!











    I wasn't sure what to expect going into Torn from You, but reading the novella before the start of this one gave me some idea. I wasn't even sure the novella was needed, but now I can see why it was and why it worked. I've read a few dark books, and this one was fairly tame compared to those. But still good!

    And this was dark, indeed. A little terrifying. A little heartbreaking. At the start of this novel, the main character, Emily, has been kidnapped. And she's brought into the dangerous and horrifying world of sex slavery. And when she hears Sculpt's voice, she thinks she's saved. Or, so she thought...

    I was always unsure whether I could trust Sculpt or not, especially since he's the one who brought her into all of this. But he's also more than he seems, and all he wants to do is protect Emily. Shield her from the terrifying truth laid out before her. Comfort her when it becomes too much to bear. He gets her out of it, but the emotional and mental repercussions of those weeks in that Mexican compound will haunt her for the rest of her life.

    I thought Emily was a very strong character--one who survives a truly terrifying ordeal. She's very insecure because of her mother, and she's only ever known love by the kind she has with her real family, Kat and Matt. She's sweet and innocent, but also resilient and determined. This book follows her journey of survival and healing, and also her uncertainty when it comes to her feelings for Sculpt. 

    I. Do. Not. Like. Sculpt. And it's not even because of the whole sex slavery issue. That, I could deal with, especially knowing how the two characters feel toward each other. But I don't like Sculpt! He's too controlling, too possessive for my tastes. And made me mad to no end when Sculpt kept Emily in the dark about everything. She survived that compound and you think she can't handle a little terrible news? Bull. I understand he wanted to protect her, but he should never have hidden the truth. It kind of made him treat her like a child who is being completely unreasonable and who shouldn't make decisions for herself.

    With You, the novella before this one, showcases the relationship between Emily and Sculpt, how it developed and how strong their feelings for one another are. It's needed to understand where the both of them are coming from after all that's happened. Because Emily loved him, it was easier for her to forgive, but it was also harder for her to come to terms with it all. All Sculpt wanted was to protect her, and he won't give up on their love. They got through it together. 

    Guys, I loved the secondary characters! Kite (love that nickname), Crisis (so funny), and even Ream (though he's a jerk). Can't forget about bluntly honest Georgie and hilarious Kat. And protective Matt. Oh hey, Emily, you can have Sculpt. I want Deck! He's a man of few words, but boy, he sure made an impression on me. I can't wait to see him unravel a little bit. Also, I'm intrigued by this Kai dude and Raven. We'll see what happens with them in the author's Unyielding series. 

    The plot is very underwhelming and simple, but that's okay. I didn't mind it so much. It wasn't as dark as I thought it'd be, and the fact that Sculpt and Emily love each other made it easier to handle what happens at the compound. I've read dark books before, and I honestly didn't think this one was that bad. It was more on the tame side, but still terrifying. I liked the 2 year separation; the timeframe never seemed off or randomly thrown in there. I think it was needed to get the characters to where they needed to go. Although, I expected a lot more development with Sculpt. 

    The writing was simple, but there were a lot of mistakes. I see why the author needed to throw in Logan's POV at some points, but I didn't like how it was in 3rd person and not 1st like Emily's. There were also disagreements of tenses and narratives throughout.

    Torn from You was a great start to this series! I liked the plot, and I liked pretty much all of the secondary characters (I want more of all of them!). I didn't care for Sculpt, and I wanted a bit more character development. But aside from that, and the mistakes, I really enjoyed this book!

    I would just like to say that I do take reader reviews seriously.  I am sure many of you read reviews also BEFORE you buy some of your books.  I have one thing to say---So MANY of you here that reviewed this book have obviously never heard the word SPOILER??!! Thank you! NOT! I hope it happens once to you on the next book you are getting ready to read...

    4.5 stars!!

    Emily is thrown into a world of slavery. As a sex slave. She is taken from the bar and beaten and transported to Mexico where they tell her she will adhere to the rules and submit to them or she will be killed. Or worse, sold so that she will never be found again.

    What tears her heart out is that Logan is there with her every step of the way. Trying to break her and make her fear him. Well, he succeeds at that.

    Emily is crushed by Logan's involvement in her kidnapping. She loved him. How could he do that to her?

    The night of the fight changes everything. Emily escapes and goes home to try to put her shattered heart together. She finally gets her dream and her friends don't push her to talk. She won't talk about it.

    Then she hears a motorcycle and everything changes. As her scarred heart shatters again, she wonders if it will ever heal. She learns the agonizing truth about what happened. And then hre world starts to shatter again. But she is determined not to let that happen again.

    Wow. I loved this book. It grabbed me from the beginning and I could not put it down. I didn't want to put it down. I was on the edge of my seat thru the majority of this book. Once I learned about Logan, I was extremely pissed at him and everyone else involved in this atrocious world. I wondered how a person could do such a thing to another human being. I found myself wanting to jump into the book and kick his ass for Emily. And then kill him slowly. Even when he showed up 2 yrs later. The nerve...

    Simple review

    I'm usually much more descriptive but all I can say is this book is really doggone good. It was more suspense than I ever expected in a romance novel. And I know I've read other posts before how characters feel real and they leap of the page. This is the first time I've experienced that to the point when I was yelling at them out loud..:-) The hubby thought I was losing it.
    You won't be disappointed..... buy the book!
