With You (Tear Asunder .5) by Nashoda Rose

New York Times bestseller.

Sculpt is an illegal fighter.

He’s also the lead singer of a local rock band.

No one knows his real name.

And from the moment I met him, he made me forget mine.

In order to convince Sculpt to give me self-defense lessons, I had to follow his one rule—no complaining or he’d walk. I didn’t think it would be a problem. I’d been bucked off horses, kicked and stepped on. I could handle a few bruises. What I hadn’t anticipated was landing on my back with Sculpt on top of me and my entire body burning up for him.

I tried to ignore it.

Then I tried to stop it.

I failed of course. And having a hot, tattooed badass on top of me week after week, acting cool and completely immune to what he was doing to my body—it was frustrating as hell, so I broke his rule—I complained.

Then he kissed me.

Author’s Note: This novella is Sculpt and Emily’s beginning and how they met. It is highly recommended to read before “Torn from You”.

*Warning* Huge cliff-hanger. Like huge! DO NOT READ if you Don't enjoy Dark Romance as the next book is very dark.*

With You is a short novella introducing us to how Sculpt and Emily meet. Both come from a background of hard knocks despite their young age. Sculpt doesn’t talk about his past and wont even his real first name with her. The story open with Emily approaching Sculpt to teach her self defense lessons. He is an illegal fighter with muscles and tattoos to die for. Reluctantly he agrees. A few weeks of bruises and clandestine touches ensure a growing chemistry turns into something more as Emily finally learns his first name and the fact that he is participating in fights simple to fund his band’s upcoming tour. Gradually their emotional defenses dissipate and with the band’s tour about to kick off she decides to give him the ultimate parting gift. Secure in their blossoming relationship, Emily attends the band’s gig where Sculpt wants her to hear a song he has specially written for her, but she doesn’t quite make it. It ends where Torn from You will start. In darkness. Kidnapped, starved and beaten. The author supplied the arc of this novella to read alongside Torn from You, and I am glad I read the novella first, but I don’t believe it would deflect from the story if you read Torn from You first. This story is one of those nice surprises you get sometimes when you pick up a book where it was the book cover alone that entices you to read it. It is well written and the author’s descriptive tones were just right to immerse you into the surroundings and to how Emily was feeling and thinking without being overkill and telling the reader what to think. This is NOT your usual tattoed up bad boy singer/fighter & zero confidence, sexual inexperienced girl scenario. It is far better. Thanks to Nashoda Rose and Book Enthusiast Promotions for the ARC

~ “I’m not something to win, Sculpt.” “Yeah you are, Mouse. You’re a trophy. I’ve known that for weeks.” ~ From the beginning, I knew there was something about these characters that would make it easy to fall in love with…and I was right. Nashoda’s writing draws you in from the first page, and before you can even blink or wonder what happened, you are completely entrenched in the story. You are sucked into the world of Emily and Sculpt. Yes, you read that right. Sculpt. Though that isn’t his real name, there isn’t much we DO know about him. Sculpt is a man of mystery, but what you are given will make you fall in love. Emily falls hard and fast and it’s completely believable. He’s the combination of ALL my favorite Alpha heroes from other books, all wrapped together in one deliciously hard body of a man. Fighter, rocker, lover; Sculpt has it all. Or does he… Emily was very endearing to me. I understood her insecurities, her need to stand on her own two feet. These two together? Steam was pouring from the pages! As this is only a prequel, and as the author states in the description, be prepared for one hell of a cliffhanger! No worries though. Book one released on the same day. This is a quick read, but one that will stick with you long after you’ve turned the last page.

## This is less than 50 pages and should've been included in the book Torn from you. This book is fine but the sequel is definitely not. BEWARE: "Torn from you" is deplorable. The things that the "hero" does to the heroine while she's in captivity are revolting. I can't believe a woman actually wrote it. I wish I would've had a warning. I knew sex trafficking was involved and that some things can be hard to read and that doesn't bother me, but that the "hero" was responsible and then stands by and lets the heroine be tortured and assaulted is atrocious. And that she takes him back after all that pain,humiliation and degradation is plain ridiculous. Skip 'Torn from you'. I wish I had.

One of my favorites. So hot
Lisa352 More than 1 year ago
I have read .5, and 1-3. I did not like the stories & absolutely SHOULD have heeded the warning about how dark these are. Other reviews here are positive so the problem is obviously with me! Just not my style probably because THEY ARE DARK. The characters all have major problems & there is just too much "do I love him, do I not" angst.....I hate wishy washy characters. I find it hard to understand how so much absolute drama could be so boring. I ended up skimming pages just to get through these books. My problem is once i get introduced to a series I want to know what happens to the other characters so I keep going wanting to know what the other characters are up to. I will read Deck's story & then will give the rest a miss. These stories are simply too dark & it is unbelieveable when the characters still come back together.

I can already tell this series is going to be a favorite of mine. Fighting. Motorcycles. Rock Stars. Masters. Military. JTF2. Seriously, hot alpha men overload. It's like being a kid in a candy store when trying to pick which guy is your favorite.

With You is the prequel to Torn from You and is a compelling introduction to the characters of Emily and Sculpt. I'm hooked and am eager to begin the rest of their story. Emily lost any chance of building self-confidence when her father died when she was 10. Her mom was too self-absorbed and reminding Emily constantly of how she'd ruined her life. She spent most of her teen years with her best friend and her best friend's brother, whose unique circumstances bonded them. A frightening experience sends Emily looking for Sculpt, a fighter, hoping he'll teach her some self-defense moves. Sculpt is a fighter as well as the lead singer for the band, Tear Asunder. We don't know much else about him other than his past is scary, he doesn't talk about it, and he's over the moon for Emily. We are witness to these two getting to know one another and falling for each other. And it's heartwarming really, and I enjoyed it. Both Emily and Sculpt have walls put up to keep people from getting in. But, while Emily does some growing, we still don't know that much about Sculpt aside from his feelings for Emily and he doesn't have much character growth.  Then the night of Emily's first time to see Sculpt's band...BAM!! I'm chomping at the bit to know what happens next!
