BRIEF SUMMARY
Mo has been in a relationship with Quan for nine years and through out that time she has dealt with his lies, cheating, the miscarriages, and drama. But with all that is going on, she finds herself still in love and torn when it comes to Quan. But will she ever leave and find happiness?

I could read this novel fifty five and a half times and I will still never understand how Mo was so torn about Quan. Their horrible relationship didn't seem so confusing, it was as clear as a beautiful sunny California day that they should run in opposite directions. This novel is way too long and overflowed with a surplus of redundant unnecessary scenarios. I could see how the length and nonessential circumstances could be entertaining if the reader is torn and confused right along with the cha...more

I enjoyed reading this book so much. I cried with Mo through the loss of Heaven, and cheered her when she destroyed Quans stuff! I couldn't put the book down at all. I even cried when she said she didn't want to leave him because she was afraid that would mean losing the reakationship with his mom. That was so touching. Boss was the BEST! I think we all want a man like him! And A lot of people talked about Sherry, but I got to hand it to her, she played the game just right. She had me compleatly...more

“Torn” Keisha Ervin

As a young women coming of age relationships are important to me Advice from others play a huge part in my Decisions as I stumbled upon a book named “Torn". I was excited to read it. The book chronicles the ups & downs of relationships such as the main character Mo and her boyfriend Quan. I rate this book highly and is a must read for teens. It’s a must read because of the drama, how it shows the cons and pros of relationships and fairy tall e ending.

The drama in “Torn” k...more

The book I am reading is called Torn this book has many love hate relationships and dramatic scenes in it it expresses a sense of reality. It's based of a couples relationship and how they overcome the worst in life together. It reminds me of when me and my girlfriend was together and all of the things that happened with us they are very similar because we were both just like the main characters we were devious and we both were torn between lust, infatuation and survived a few fist fights.

The m...more

Mo seemed like every women in america who loves a man that doesn't even deserve her love. Everytime she lost their baby(ies) I became heart broken because she wanted to be a mother so bad.This book is dangerous. It had me memorized for three days. I was up all night and going to work very tired cause I just couldn't put it down. I was drawn to Mo's and Quan's story. I was very emotional right along with Mo. ...Talk about an emotional roller coaster!!! My heart went out to her. Quan... such a dog...more

This book was awesome, the way the story was told,you wouldn't believe it was fiction.She takes you with her characters and help you to actually live what the characters are going through for the moment. The sex scenes play in your mind the love attraction boils your blood. You can tell Keisha Ervin has a natural God give urban talent. Much luv and shot out to Keisha I will always be one of your #1 die hard fan
Madeleine Montuna
VERY GOOD BOOK READ IT IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS . THAT'S HOW GOOD IT WAS I JUST COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN. THE BOOK WAS GOOD BUT AT TIME YOU MIGHT GET TIRED OF THE MAIN CHARACTER BECAUSE SHE KEPT MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES OVER AND OVER AGAIN. SOME MIGHT APPRECIATE THAT BECAUSE SOMETIMES PART OF BEING HUMAN IS MAKING THE SAME MISTAKES OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

I enjoyed this book, sure took me out of reality for a while. Something familiar, always a hint of reality in a fictional story.

I'm going back and forth between two and three stars right now and I've opted for three because I'm hoping it's me that took away from the book. I'm fairly sure it was which is why I'm taking this route. I really wish we had the 'half a star' option right now.
Keisha Ervin is a GOOD author, as any urban fiction reader knows. I'm not sure if this wasn't what I was expecting or if, more likely, I just wasn't in the right mood or frame of mind for this particular story at this particular moment.

"I'm finally putting me first, you know. I'm living for myself for a change. I mean it really feels good to have the weight of negativity off my back." - Mo in Torn

Torn is about a young woman named Monsieur Parthens(Mo). Mo grew up pretty spoiled she has 4 older brothers. She was never told to do chores and was gifted with whatever she wanted. In Torn Mo is 25 and has been with her boyfriend Quan since she was just shy of her 1...more

In Keisha Ervin's novel, "Torn" she describes the life of two childhood sweethearts by the name of Mo and Quan. They go through many trials and tribulations regarding marriage, adultery, and motherhood, as well as poverty versus wealth and superficial versus honest associates. I would recommend this book to any reader that wants to delve their teeth into something raunchy, culturally informative as well as entertaining.

I never knew boys could come with so many problems, until I read the book Torn. This book allowed to open my eyes and face the truth about how some guys really are. Some boys are truely sweet and loyal, and others just seem to be nothing at all. The book talked about how this young girl name Mo was so in love with a no good guy name Quan, who treated her like a queen but had changed through out their relationship.

Torn is a really good book. I takes place in St.Louis which gave me as the read a g...more

Stacey’s Thoughts- This book was an easy read. It started off really good but I must admit that it dropped off somewhere in the middle for me. Although it was good, I felt that it was just too typical and I found myself being frustrated with the characters. Mo is spoiled, insecure, materialistic, and stupid. Quan is your typical insecure, abusive, manipulative bad guy. I also agree with some of the other reviews that there were just too many pages of “fluff”. This book could have been so much be...more
Francesca Reid
I've read this book about 10 times over the years. The content is very relatable. Most women have been in a relationship where they have given their all and was given heartache and emotional pain in return. We've all had at least one relationship that we've held onto longer than we should've out of fear of being alone or fear of the unknown. Some of us are lucky enough to realize our worth, walk away, and eventually enter that relationship that gives us clarity on why it never worked out with an...more
