Hes loved me since the day I was born.
Hes taken care of me.
Hes awakened me.

Fifteen years older than me, hes always been my protector.
The one I should never, ever want.
But I was born to be his.

Shes always loved me.
Shes shattered me.
Shes healed me.

Kenzi. My best friends daughter.
I held her the day she was born, and I never let go.
Shes forbidden to me. But shes the only one that really gets me.
Were slowly being torn apart by everything we love.
Everything we want.
Everything we desire.

And now I want the one thing I cant have... I want her.

Copy received for an honest review

Like the blurb says - there is no underage shenanigans in this story (I have seen a few people worried about that bit!)

Carian Cole has certainly pushed the boundaries with Torn - and I absolutely freaking loved every moment of it.

Tor and Kenzi's love is a lifelong long love - it is just that the kind of love has shifted over the years.  Some might call it twisted, sick, taboo.  But to me it was just a beautiful love story, and I fell in love with her characters as they fell in love with each other.

"I have not past without him, I have not future without him."

Their connection was tangible, the emotions jumped from the pages. I could feel the the fluttering in Kenzi's stomach, I could feel their hearts beating in their chests, I could feel the love, the anguish they felt as they embarked on this wonderful but scary as shit journey.

"You changed my entire life, Kenzi, and you've continued to do so."

I loved that we got snippits of the Ashes and Embers crew - oh Asher my heart ached for you.  And I loved the intro we got to Tor's family.
I have read every book that Ms Cole has released, and each and every time I fall more and more under the spell of her writing.  Torn had me on an emotional ledge from the first word to the last, and I was never quite sure when she was going to tip me over the edge.  But it was worth every tear, every ounce of anger and hurt I felt.

And I am not going to lie, that last 10% wrecked me.

I can't wait to see what Ms Cole brings us next. 



Kenzi one day old

Toren fifteen years old

We want you to be her Godfather, Asher says as he gently lays his newborn baby into my arms. I have to tear my gaze away from her spellbinding eyes to look up at him from the chair Im cradling the baby in.

Me? I repeat, glancing over at Ember in the hospital bed, who beams back at me with a tired, yet genuine smile.

Yes, you, they both say at the same time. If it wasnt for you, we probably never would have met, Ember adds, grabbing Ashers hand. And we wouldnt have this beautiful little baby. We know youll always protect her.

Thats right, man. Youre Uncle Tor now.

Im an uncle. And my two best friends are parents. And were all fuckin under sixteen.

But Kenzi Allyster Valentine would change us all forever. She needed us.

Wow. Im honored, guys. No doubt, Ill always be here for her.

I kick back the pang that hits my stomach. I didnt get the girlbut I got something better that I never expected. A gift in the form of a little tiny hand wrapped tightly around my finger, huge eyes like gems staring up into mine like I was the most amazing person in the friggen world, and the first glimpse of what I could already tell was going to be a heart-stopping smile. 

At that moment, a connection was born.

That was it. 

She owned me.

My niece.

My god-daughter.

The love of my life.

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.

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.
