Love is like an avalanche. It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn't doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.

Kidnapped.
Starved.
Beaten.
I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me.

I was wrong.

(It is highly recommended to read "With You" the novella first).

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years.

This is a love story with some dark elements. Dark contemporary romance. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story (the band's lead guitarist).

OctobeRec Fest review #2 – woot! Thanks to Naomi from Nomi’s Reading Palace for the recommendation! And the perfect beer pairing? Shipyard Pumpkinhead! Are you seeing a theme? I do love me some pumpkin beer. This one mixes a hazy IPA with the pumpkin and it’s a lighter finish. Again, if you like pumpkin AND beer, give this one a try. Oh, and give Nashoda Rose’s Tear Asunder series a go, too!

Torn from You was a gripping and emotional read. And it was a satisfying wrap-up to Emily and Logan’s (aka Sculpt) story.

It had been awhile since I’d read With You, the prequel to Torn from You, so I re-read it before diving in. I’m happy I did because it made Torn from You that much more riveting. As Emily and Logan’s relationship had developed, Logan had always kept his family and past off-limits topics. Unfortunately, that decision would come back to haunt him. Had he shared, Emily would have known the possible danger she was in and the choices Logan made in trying to deal with the horrific situation they found themselves in would have had less of a traumatic impact. Maybe.

NRose deftly conveys the emotional consequences to all that Emily and Logan suffered. Trust is earned and once broken, it takes a long time to gain again. Luckily Logan was willing to put in the time and effort. But Emily made him work for it. In the end, the things they experienced and the work it took to overcome it all made them stronger individually and as a couple.

NRose also created quite the secondary cast of engaging characters. Logan’s bandmates (did I mention he’s in a rock band?!?) and Emily’s best friends all added depth to the story as well as made me curious enough about them to continue the series.

Reading this book contributed to these challenges:

    It sounds like this romance would have only worked if he did have to make up for putting her in danger. It sounds like a powerful dark story. 🙂
