Questo romanzo è stato un enigma fin dal suo cover reveal ▬ vi ricordate quando lo feci? Ero stata attratta dalla presenza di due fanciulle e un maschio, prevedendo quindi un triangolo amoroso (che io adoro con tutta me stessa, quando sono fatti come Dio comanda.) Ma . . . sorpresa! Niente di quello che avevo ipotizzato si è rivelato esatto xD

Questa è la travagliata storia di Marcus e Hannah, da sempre innamorati l'uno dell'altra ma da sempre convinti che l'altro non ricambi. Oh, non venitemi a

THIS IS A FIVE STAR REVIEW!! GREAT DEBUT NOVEL!!! I received an ARC of Torn from A.M. Wallace in exchange for an honest review and beta read. I have to say I really enjoyed the story. The characters and the story line were well written and so true to life. Marcus and Hannah best friends along with Ericka and Chad. Well in comes Amy and Justin. Hannah and Marcus with feelings for each other even though they are best friends and have been basically all their lives. Neither one want to admit their ...more

I received an advanced copy of Torn from A.M. Wallace in exchange for an honest review! This a great debut novel!!! I was very impressed with the way that A.M. Wallace was able to describe the characters and in such a way that you are able to relate to all of the characters in the novel. There are many situations that Marcus and Hannah are involved in and once you think you have it figured there is another twist and turn. You will not be able to put the book down once you start reading it; I cou ...more

An ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

I've had this book on my tbr list and have been waiting on it to be released ever since I first saw a teaser! I was so excited when I got the chance to review it, and A.M. Wallace did not disappoint! Torn is the story of Hannah and Marcus who are best friends. The only problem is they both have feelings for each other that are more than friendship, but haven't told each other. A.M. Wallace takes the reader through the journey full of twists and tu

This book was so, so good! From the beginning I felt I knew exactly what I wanted to happen & who I did & didn't like. Everything changed multiple times throughout the time I was reading. By the end of the book I was completely unsure of what I wanted to happen with Marcus, Hannah, & Amy. The romance & the real life details helped keep me hooked. It was a true emotional roller coaster that I simply could not get off of!!

This story is such a heart wrencher. The story between Hannah and Marcus is so bittersweet. You will be rooting for both of them, and yelling at them, and oh so frustrated when their so blind to each others feelings. They have been BFF's since childhood, but with they walk away from each other to deal with their own significant others and those feelings? And a killer cliffhanger, but I want to know how it comes out. Will their friendship be torn apart?

If you love romance with a twist this is the series for you! Book one sets the scene nicely with some unique storytelling. You are on an emotional roller coaster ride during the whole book. You change your mind a thousand times about what you want to happen and by the end of the first book you still dont know. So grab a seat and strap in tight! You are in for the ride of your life.

I don't read NA like this ever because I am a awkward turtle and it makes me feel uncomfortable, but A.M. Wallace was sweet enough to give me an E-book copy of her debut novel. So I decided to give it a read. I don't regret reading it at all. The story line of this book was surprisingly really enjoyable. I liked the writing as if the characters were actually holding a conversation with you and speaking all their thoughts. It was in both Hannah and Marcus's POV. Depending on the chapters. The two ...more
This is book 1 in the Divided Series. Well. I’m not sure what to say here except to say the title is so perfect for the book. Hannah has been in love with Marcus for as long as she can remember. She’s been best friends with his sister, Erika, for years and he’s always been there for her. But she can’t tell him and he thinks of her as a sister or does he? This was a good book but Hannah is kind of wishy washy and I’m not sure if I really like her. Marcus has his good and bad points, too. They hav ...more

I received this book from goodreads and really enjoyed this book! This was a debut work from A.M. Wallace and was eager to read it! Such a wonderful story to read!! It is a good romance book about Marcus and Hannah who are best friends but also have feelings for each other that they dont share with each other. This story is full of twists and turns so you never fully know what going to happen and boy what a ending! I cant wait to see what the sequel holds to this book!!

This is my first book from AM Wallace and I could not put it down. I love friendship to more book but this was so much more. I couldn't believe that these two were really star crossed. The dynamics changed when the started see others and couldn't explain why. I didn't want it to end. I wanted more from Marcus and Hannah! I can't wait for the second book!!

Wonderful story of friends and romance

Excellent story of two friends who love and live but go in different directions for a moment. Their lives and feelings become more complicated when one relationship ends badly. Can't wait to read the second book in the series by AM Wallace.

A romance with authentic suspense. A boy, a girl, both struggling with their friendship, their love, or both. Can you be in love with or just love your best friend? Torn equals new beginnings. Loved it, real characters, real meanings.

Note to self

The story sounded so interesting. But from the beginning, narration was boring to me.

I finally finished this book. I absolutely adore it. It was a real page turner for me, I wouldn't put it down unless I fell asleep reading. The characters were so relatable and very easy to envision them.
I really hope there's another one because that ending threw me!! Suspense kept me going the whole time!! I'm still in suspense! I need more!
Am definitely recommending this book to everyone I know :)
