She sent an innocent man to prison. Now, eight years later, he's returning the favor...

I've been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The twisted part of this story is that I still want him even now that he's holding me captive on an island.

Rafe has his reasons for doing what he's doing, and if I'm honest, I can't blame him. I'm the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn't commit.

But now he's free and the tables have he's the one driven by obsession.


Torrent is a dark romance with kidnapping and other disturbing themes. Intended for mature readers. Not for the faint of heart. You've been warned. Part 1 in the Condemned series.

I was expecting a girl with a major case of Stockholm Syndrome, and that's not what I got at all. If I knew all that this book actually did entail, I never would have read it. I found myself cringing and crossing my legs more times then I care to count, but at the same time, did I put the book down? Call it morbid curiosity or whatever, but no I didn't. And will I read the next book? Probably so, and for the same reason. This story took dark and twisted to the extreme. Some of it seemed a little unreal, but his is a situation I can't relate to in any way, so what do I know? There were some things that went beyond the believability factor for me, like the ending. I'm not a fan of how this cliffhanger ending played out. I really wasn't sure how to rate this one, but the fact that as disturbing as it was, and I still couldn't put it down.. well... maybe I need therapy too. Torrent by Gemma James was kindly provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.

When I finished this book I had to seriously sit for a minute and just take it all in. I had to wrap my head around all the thoughts that were flying around. I don't read very many dark erotic novels but this is definitely one of those. It was messed up in so many ways.. but in a way it made it good because it was about completely flawed characters. Let me warn you though.... if you can't handle dark, controlling, forceful, unwilling encounters then this book isn't for you. We start with Alex who has just had to bury her mother. She is filled with so much grief that she doesn't know how to control it. We soon find out that over the years her step-brother has raped her but for some reason she is able to find pleasure to an extent. She fears him but is scared to say anything. We also meet Rafe. He has come back for revenge and wants Alex to suffer after all he has been through. Let me be honest. It is hard to read some of the things that Rafe puts Alex through. It is torture that no human should have to experience. He breaks her down and only wants the truth in return. The truth comes out and Rafe has been thrown off his axis. It wasn't what he was expecting and now is not sure how to handle the situation. But, the step-brother comes back into the picture and things don't go very smoothly. It does have a cliffhanger ending that will leave you hurting. I can't figure out what will happen next and how things will be revealed after the shocking ending! .... WOW!

This is definitely the darker side of fetishes. Its full of rape, pain, and deceit. I was intrigued with the plot. It took me awhile to figure a few things out. The cliffhangar is rough. I want to know what happened to alex! If youre sensitive to the above mentioned rape, and hardcore sex, even with holding orgasms, dont read it.

Horrified fascination. That's the best way to describe my feelings when reading this book. I have read erotica this dark before. I couldn't stop reading it. I enjoyed it although parts of it made me uncomfortable. It is dark and twisted. Not for everyone but I liked it

This book is dark and twisted and I loved it. This book is full of twists and turns. Just when you think you have the hang of the book and what maybe going on something else is revealed. There is romance, violence, rape, heart break, and much more. The base of the story is Alex sent Rafe to prison and now he has been released after 8 years. Rafe didn’t do what he was accused of. She really did it to protect him in a roundabout way. Now Rafe has his own plan for Alex. The reason Alex sent Rafe to prison was horrible. Alex has never had any kind of freedom. Between her step-father and step-brother she has always been told who to talk to and not talk to, what to eat, where to go, what to do, what to study in school. From the outside it looks like she has the perfect life and is a spoiled princess. However the more Rafe gets to know her after he takes her the more he realizes how wrong he really is. I was blown away by the book and can’t wait to read the next one in story to find out what happens next. So much happens in the book. I really feel for Alex, she has had a difficult life and doesn’t really have anyone to talk to about what is going on. Rafe went through a lot in prison and when he gets out his only real goal is to make Alex pay. This book has fantastic characters and a great story line. It was wonderfully written. It has a cliff hanger ending which I could do without but being that I read the books back to back it wasn’t that bad. I think I have found another author to put on my watch list. I was given this book in return for an honest review.

Ordered then found out it was a cliffhanger. So now have to buy at least one more book to read whole story. No thank you. Not going to buy into Author/publisher bait and switch. I deleted first book from my library.

Gemma James did something few authors have done.....she yanked so many different emotions from me from the first page to the last. I ran the gamut from sympathy to outright rage. This is a dark story surrounding people at their worst so i wouldn't recommend it for the faint at heart. I will continue on with rest of this series as the whole atmosphere starting changing on the last page and i absolutely HAVE to know the outcome.

OMG! This book is so good. If i was the woman in this book, i dont know to be sceard or turn on. Rhe book is about a woman who put a guy in prison when she was 15 years old. When he got out, he kidnapped her and toke her to island. Then he put her in cage in his basement. He keep having sex with her and keep her naked for two weeks. She fall in love with him. She had to go back to her family. She didnt want to. I love this book. I couldnt it down.

Dark and edgy. Sensual as well. Deals w some subjects considered taboo. I liked it and look forward to more from this author and also a resolution to this book.

This is not a good book. It doesn't even deserve one star. I was surprised by all the abuse. From begining to end the main character is abused in every definition of the word, emotionally, mentally, physically, verbally, and sexually. Abuse is not ok. I can't believe this book even got published. Its a disgrace to all women. No wonder young girls are getting confused about sex. This book was very disturbing and sad......
