Blog Tour: Torn From You by Nashoda Rose

Torn from You Blog Tour Banner


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. Tied up like a piece of meat then whipped. I was alone and fighting to survive. When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong. Sculpt was there to break me. *Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story (the band's lead guitarist).

***If you have not read With You, it's highly recommended you read it prior to reading Torn From You.***

I have read a lot of mixed reviews about this book.  Some say it's great, some say it was horrible, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I read this book.  This book was brilliant, you can imagine my surprise when I discovered this author wrote another series under a different name that I gave a bad review to.  I was shocked to find it was the same author since I loved this book so much.

In With You we first met Emily and Logan (Sculpt) where he taught her how to fight and she ultimately fell in love with him.  Torn From You picks up days later with Emily kidnapped.  She can't figure out where she is or who has taken her.  She men are cruel to her and much to her dismay when she is taken upstairs to meet the man who has taken her, Raul, she hears a voice that she has dreamed or hearing again since she was taken, Logan.  But Logan isn't there to save her, he's working with them.  Gone is the man who sang to her, gone is the man who ate vanilla ice cream with her in the horse field, in his place is a cold calculated man who shows no mercy.  He tells her she must obey that she must follow and do whatever the men tell her to do, or she will be sold.  Sold to who?  She does not know.  Constantly drugged and violated, she's taken to Mexico, to a mansion where the men do whatever they want and the women are slaves.

Logan tells her she belongs to him, that if she doesn't want to be sold, then she has to obey him or she will end up like the other women.  He's there to fight and if he wins he gets to keep the girl, if he loses she's sold.  It's here that she learns what real fear is, afraid of being sold, afraid she will die here, and afraid of the man Logan has become.  She learns to obey him and they build some form of a connection late at night when she shares his bed, but in the morning he returns to be the cold man she has come to know, ordering her to do the things he says she must do.  Emily has seen things that most women never see in their entire lifetime, things she wishes she could forget at the hands of her captures.  Things that haunt her even after she is rescued by Logan and sent to the waiting arms of Deck who's waiting to save her.

It takes Emily a long time to come to terms with what happened to her when she was in captivity, unable to let go of the memories of Logan that are now tainted by the weeks she spent locked up and terrified for her life.  Two years later, he returns with his band now named Tear Asunder.  With him he brings his band mates Kite, Crisis, and Ream.  It appears when they arrive that Emily is not the only one with a connection to a member of the band.  There's a tension between Ream and Kat and Emily comes to find out that the farm that she now lives on with horses is owned by Logan.  He comes seeking her forgiveness and understanding, but some wounds are too deep to ever truly heal.  Can they learn to move on from what happened or will Emily find out that forgiveness is too much to ever be able to give Logan?

This book took off with a bang.  The captivity scenes were so real and raw that it made you feel like you were living there right along side Emily and Logan.  It was hard to read, the scenes so realistic and pull at the strings of your heart.  Emily went from being a young woman who needed to learn how to protect herself to a woman living in a world full of fear that will take years to heal from.  Even after Logan returns there are still so many secrets that Logan keeps from her, only telling her some of the things that he thinks she needs to know and keeping certain things from her.  This book was brilliant and I look forward to reading Ream and Kat's story but even more than that Deck and Georgie.  I highly recommend this book, 5 stars.
