I can’t even begin to describe the emotions I experienced reading this book. At first glance, I automatically thought of this book as being similar to Tears for Tess by Pepper Winters but it sure as hell wasn’t. First of all, before reading this, it’s imperative to read the novella first With You, before starting Torn from You. At first I didn’t see what the big deal was reading the novella, but then you got to see the chemistry between Sculpt aka Logan and Emily, and I instantly fell in love with the both of them.
Torn from you picks up exactly where With you left off, in the manner where I still had the WTF just happened shock still going on.
This is going to contain spoilers so if you haven’t read the book you need to turn away.
Emily has been kidnapped, and held captive against her will, and taken from the love of her life. Right when she thinks she’s about to be saved because she hears his voice she couldn’t be more wrong when she realizes that he’s a part of the whole damn thing. Mouth drops to the floor. He’s nothing like the person she met and fell in love with. He’s cold, ruthless, and told her, that she will hate him, she will fear him, and allows others to beat her, and touch her, yet through all this she still tries to find something in him. Somehow whatever he did or says, it was always worded differently, in a way where she could have some kind of trust in him, because if she doesn’t she’ll be sold, and she’ll be broken down to basically nothing where she’ll wish she was dead.
After about 15 days, Logan risks his life to set Emily free. 2 years go by and Emily is living on a farm, trying to get her life together, and out of the blue Logan shows up. Emily hasn’t seen Logan in 2 years since he set her free, but now he’s back, and willing to do whatever it takes to get her back. Emily has zero trust in Logan, after everything he’s done to her. Logan refuses to give up, and won’t give up because as he says, he doesn’t take no for an answer. After the pain and abuse Emily went through does she give in, or doesn’t she? Would you once again love someone that purposely allowed you to be held captive and have vile things happen to you? This book was emotional, and had you teetering on edge and at times I wanted to slap Emily but then I had to remember she was suffering from PTSD, so that was a free pass.
I’m excited for the next installment in the series to read about Ream and Kat, since there was some serious tension there.
