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

Emily might have watched the degradation of humans. Tonight, I watched in horror the degradation of the written word. Mild spoilers ahead. Read at your own peril.

I'm not even sure how to write this review because my thoughts are all over the place!!

Emily and Logan "Sculpt"

Emily she's feisty but reserved, a horse trainer, loyal friend and determined but ends up broken and fighting to come back.

Logan AKA Sculpt he's a tatted up hottie, underground fighter, lead singer in a band, secretive, sexy and ALL alpha! Delicious!!

***UPDATE*** There is now a copy available on Amazon with both With You & Torn From You in one book with a bonus scene from Logan's POV. You can get the new edition on Amazon:

Torn From You was one of those books that starts out with a bang. It's one of those books that manages to capture your attention from the very first page until the very last one, it manages to suck you in until you've reached the final line. The prologue itself was pretty romantic and sweet but then the story takes a complete turn. The first half of the story is quite dark, gritty and emotional and had a bit of a CITD-vibe.

Don't you love those books that sweep you off your feet and hold you captive until you finish? Torn from You is exactly that type of book. It belongs in its own genre of romance! This book has a perfect mixture of both a dark and twisted romance and a timeless love story all in one!

Enough said...

When I go back to re-read a story for any reason at all, it's a story worth mentioning, well in my world at least!

Logan/Sculpt & Emily's story is a complex mosaic made of passion, resilience, patience, betrayal, sacrifice, love, hope & forgivness as crucial pieces...

Let me just say the multiple layers the male character here has...( and the mix of combination that could not have been more perfect for me – a lead singer and guitar player in a rock band

Holy shit. Wow. I had no idea what to expect from this book, but I was not expecting it to be as good as it was. The best advice I can give you is to go into this absolutely blind. Don't read reviews as even some of the most minor stuff can be spoilers. I will try to sum this up the best I can without giving anything away.

I was completely blown away by this book! I loved the novella, With You and while it ended on a huge cliffhanger, I had NO CLUE as to what was going to happen next!!

The story begins right where the novella ended, Emily's kidnapped and awakens in a dark, dank basement. She has been brought into a sick, dark world of violence, humiliation, torture and the worse part, Logan's a part of it! Of course, there's A LOT more to the story than that and I don't want to give it away so

I am going to rate this one a four stars. I really did enjoy the storyline, there were just a few parts though that got my frustration level up. This would be thanks to the heroine Emily, during the second half of the book she became one of those heroine's that held on to her grudge for just too long. Also, she is so wanting to be independent, but to me she came across as cold at some points. Logan tried so very hard to earn her forgiveness; but it was like talking to a brick wall!

This beginning of this book can be labeled as dark romance but it's not very dark because it doesn't contain (view spoiler) but some sexual encounters contain (view spoiler) and there is plenty of physical abuse.

That being said I'm not going to go into the story because part of the charm of this book is not knowing what's coming next so I'm going to tell you a little bit about what I liked and disliked about this novel.



RATING: 4 "Only Broken When Apart" Hearts!!! :D <3


There are some reads that temporarily hold our interest, their stories we take over for escapism, and then there are other reads, like Nashoda Rose’s Torn From You, which commandeer our lives – from the first page to long after the last – obliterating the fictional divide and stealing the reality of our world once we start reading and easily replacing it with the sights, sounds, and emotions of our characters’ world, blanketing us in a tale awash

Wow this book had my stomach in the knots for the first fifty percent. Who to trust?

Torn From You is the story of Logan and Emily... And goodness, their story is gripping and intense... And so much more...

It starts with the prologue which charts the events leading up to the dramatic end of, 'With You.'

Drugged and taken against her will, fighting to survive. Eme soon realizes that there is nothing left to fight for; especially when the reason to fight is the very reason you’re there. Lost in her own mind, as time slips her by, confused and humiliated, how could this happen, was it all a dream, was it all a lie???
It was both of us – Torn apart. Forced. Ripped. Broken.

Wow!!! This book was a huge surprise for me!!!

To be true the first half made me feel a little bit strange and i was all the time on edge...
I didn't know who to trust and i didn't know how to feel...
The main heroine went through so much shit, but many times i caught myself irritated by her...

As for the guy that wasn't worthy of trust, i loved him fiercely...

Yeah, probably!!!

Mind fuck. Nashoda Rose will mess with your head and leave you wanting more. Just like her bad boy Sculpt. Speaking about him, I wrote a review for prequel, With You, recently - you can read it here - and based on the way both stories are written, my advice would be to first read prequel and than Torn from You.

Torn From You is Sculpt and Emily's story. In With You Torn Asunder 0.5 we saw them meet and fall in love. Then we saw everything get torn away.

Note: I really recommend reading With You Torn Asunder 0.5 first. It really sets things up for Torn From You. You get a feel for who the characters are and what is going on leading up to the events of Torn From You.

Torn From You felt like two different stories almost. Part 1--Sculpt and Emily, master and slave and Part 2--Logan and his Mouse

Torn from you is one of those books that keeps you mildly entertained until the end. In all actuality, the first half of the book was dark and gritty. I can see why many people compared this book to Captive In The Dark, but reallyyyyyyyyyyyyy

Torn From You is the first book I have read from this sort of genre of books, and although I can't honestly say it is a theme that I would readily go back to, this book definitely has it's merits.
