When I was five years old, I told Toren Grace I was going to marry him when I grew up. When I turned eighteen, I made it clear I still felt the same. The problem? He's fifteen years older than me, and he's my father's best friend.
Toren Grace. My father's best friend. My pseudo-uncle.He's always been my rock. The one I should never, ever want.But I do want him, and I love him.I always have.
Tor's one of the good guys. Loving. Devoted. A strong moral compass. One kiss between us rocked him clear off his axis. Now, we can't forget how that kiss felt, and what it changed. Nothing will ever be the same between us. I'm not a little girl anymore, and he's everything I want.
I know he's struggling, but I'm determined. With a last name of Valentine, I've got cupid in my veins. The heart wants what the heart wants, and it doesn't care about age or how we met. My father cares, though. And he's the one person neither one of us can stand to hurt.
We're all being torn apart, and I don't know how to make everyone see that the wrongs are actually right.
of Torn by Carian Cole
When a book has you so wrapped up in their world, you realize it’s taken only 3 days to read it. Another record for me. In addition, it’s also been my first official and complete read since forever. I’m not going to lie to you at all. Family life has keep me busy and happy. TV has stepped up their game, phenomenally. And at the end of the day, my eyes can never stay open long enough to grab a book and read.
Never heard of Carian Cole until a friend of mine was talking about a book of hers on Facebook. That book being, “Torn”. I was totally in love with the cover and read the synopsis.. needless to say I was hooked. It’s basically about forbidden love. Two people who have been in each other lives for a long time. Who helped each other grow into the people they are today and now see each other in a totally different light. Do they fight the intense feelings? Or do they say to, hell with it, and just let love be?
Is it a bit taboo, to an extent… BUT… it’s a slow burn. And I mean a slow fucking burn. What the hell is the equivalent of blue balls for woman?! Who knows, but I was dying. I loved how the author basically took a paint brush and detailed their relationship from past to present. Not rushed at all. You can’t help but root for them being together. Be warned there is anguish, torment and heartache. But stay with it!! This is such a great read to turn yourself away from. Toren & Kenzi forever. If your heart leaps for forbidden love and you have an open mind, this book is all you.
Out of a 5, I’m giving Torn by Carian Cole 5 Stars!
I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.
My first novel in the Ashes & Embers series, Storm, was published in September of 2014, and I have lots of books planned for this series. Devils Wolves is a spin off series, but all can be read standalone, and out of order.
Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
