I’m a freak, a misfit, an odd end.
Abandoned and unloved.
But my happiness is so close I can taste it.
Until he shows up.
Gorgeous, expensive, and all man.
Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile.
And he wants me to go with him.
His intentions are hidden.
His motives are unclear.
Yet, I leave with him because there’s no happiness here.
What he promises feels too good to be true…
A castle. A fortune. And horses too.
It’s too easy.
Nothing in my life has ever been easy.
What’s the catch?
There’s always a catch.

This book is a must read...so different. Amazing
I really loved this book. It is a must read!
I didn't see this coming. I've never had my heart so broken and so full at the same time. I had absolutely no idea what I was getting into reading this book. I went into it completely blind, and it was the best way to read this book. I was just so moved by this story. I don't want to say too much because I just don't want to give anything away. I thought I was going to read about a love triangle. I thought I was going to read about unrequited love. I never expected to read something as moving and as powerful as My Torin. Here are just a few of my thoughts after reading this book: Some things are predetermined, and everything happens for a reason. Fate and Karma are always working behind the scenes to make it all happen. People are brought into your life for reasons unknown at the time, but there is always a plan. Connections can be instant, they can be final. They can be all encompassing and consuming, and sometimes not very clear. You just know. You just know when someone is special. When they are important. When their life has meaning and purpose in yours. Casey's life had purpose from the beginning. She was special. She was everything for the Kline brothers. It's easy to love normal. It takes a special person to love the "unlovable". It take a strong person to survive heartbreak time and time again and still be able to love unconditionally. My first 5-star read of 2018. I wish I could give it more stars.
I'm not even sure where to begin with this review. My Torin is arguable one of the most emotional books I've ever experienced. Yes, experienced. I didn't read it- I felt it in every fiber of my being. I am puffy eyed, snot sniffling, and smiling a wobbly smile. I was tortured by my feelings and the magic of K Webster's words. My Torin resulted in 45 PMs and 4 Facebook posts while reading it. That doesn't even begin to describe the zeal and enthusiasm I will approach pimping this book out. IT IS A MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to say that with the author's fondness to go outside the lines and scribble on the walls- I was wary. I kept getting hung up the tag line on the cover. But as inadequate as that one word "strange" describes all this book encompasses- its also oddly fitting. It hurts my heart to say that but you won't understand unless you read it. Its an epic and beautifully poetic story. (No, no actual poetry in the words but the feels!) My Torin stole a piece of me I will never recover. I knew K Webster could create characters that are real. I knew that she had the ability to spin a story so well that you didn't know you weren't living it for real. But the only book of hers prior to My Torin that actually crippled me was Whispers and the Roars. Now I can safely say that my heart beats with an extra stutter. A tiny skipped beat that can never be fixed but will always be felt. A permanent mark on my soul. My Torin (and Whispers and the Roars) are tattooed on my mind and a stutter in my heart. I may not have read K Webster's entire catalog but I have never been disappointed in her words. I don't love all of her characters (coughs Hannah) but every single one evokes some sort of emotional response from me. Torin now reigns supreme as...Real.
Absolutely loved this book!!!
My Torin by K Webster was probably the most unique romance I've ever read, and I really struggled back and forth on how I felt about it. I've lost count on how many times I've changed my rating back and forth. It was nothing like I expected after reading the blurb, and that was a good thing. The less you know about this book before you read it, the better. It makes you think about some things and puts others in some much needed perspective. There were a few very raw and feral moments that may be hard for some people to read since this book is already dealing with sensitive subjects. The characters don't always behave in the ways they should, and I found myself getting mad at them at times too, but I had to remember: These people are broken. All three of them. Psychologically, emotionally, physically...So, their actions and behaviors aren't always those of healthy, normal people. When you read, try to really understand the state of mind, along with the thoughts and emotions of all the parties involved. When I took all that into consideration, I loved the characters. I loved the romance. It's not a comfortable story. Well, at times it is. It has many truly heartwarming moments, but it will make you cringe too. Each of the three main characters pulled strongly at my heart. They needed each other in an almost symbiotic way. They were fragile, yet their strength grew in spite of their brokenness. It was a beautiful thing. It was a beautiful story in so many ways. The character development was amazing. I fell in love with Casey, Tyler, and Torin as they fluttered to life in my mind thanks to the expressive and enchanting writing style of the author. I literally stayed up all night reading it. The ARC of My Torin by K Webster was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
I want to tell you about my favorite read of 2018. Yes, I know that it is only January, but no one besides K. Webster herself will be able to take the number one spot away from My Torin. The USA Today bestselling author has written another unforgettable novel. I can’t give you much about the story, and if you’ve read Kristi’s work before you know that can only mean that it is worth it. "I’ll give you all the pennies, Casey. I’ll give you them all." This is a story about a strange girl gifted an unbelievable opportunity with an even more unbelievable man. It seems too good to be true, and you know what they say about that. "I don’t even know what love is. But I could breathelicktastetouchsmellfeel her. I could do that all damn day." Flawed, imperfect characters. Beautiful, engaging story. These characters, every single one made their way into my heart, broke it and mended it, each in their own way. Kristi did a lot of research for this book to get it perfect and I feel that she nailed it. I will forever love this story and recommend it to everyone. I don’t care who you are or what you read, this is a novel that ALL can benefit from reading. You get insight into a subject that has been highly misunderstood for so long. Yes, I am purposely being vague for two very good reasons. One- I want you to read this. Two- Preconceived notions may keep you from doing so if you know beforehand. "My girl. Defending my honor. I’m never letting her go." If you read only one book this year, make it this one! There is tough subject matter and situations. You will come face to face with your own unrecognized as of yet discrimination, and I hope a new outlook and understanding of those that are strange. Kristi and Torin get SIX breathelicktastetouchsmellfeelneed stars, and if I could I would give them a million more!!
