I’m not gonna lie, I really....really struggled with Torn; despite the author’s amazing writing abilities and impeccable storyline.

The tale unfolds with Sky moving to Boulder City, Nevada. Where she meets three guys who later becomes endearing friends. Their relationship drags out as she sets out to get to know them and make a choice.

Predictability factor was at an all time high and often I’d scroll through the pages hoping for some kind of plot twists, maybe some drama or action. The few even

This book lives up to its synopsis. It will tear your heart out and play hell on your emotions. But all in a good way! Just when you thought nothing worse can happen in the story, it does. I love this book, absolutely loved Josh and Nate. I was very sad with how things turned out, but also vey happy for Sky. This is a great book about first loves, life long best friends, and growing up.

Torn - One will break her trust - One will break her heart - One will kill for her.

When Sky’s parents moved from San Francisco to Boulder City in Nevada, she thought her life was over, until she met the Hudson boys. Two years older than her, tattooed bad boy Nate was confident, cocky, good looking, and a straight talker. He was the unattainable guy that all the girls wanted, but the one their fathers warned them to steer clear of. Josh had all of his br

WOW.......just WOW....... I actually finished reading this book about a week ago and I'm still trying to get my mind around it. The suspense, angst, love, friendship, betrayal, OMG this book truly has it all. I have read everyone of CJ Fallowfield's books and loved each and everyone, but this, this is my number one book by her. For me this past all previous books in every way. I laughed, teared up (I'm not a crier), I wanted to shake the hell out of some of these characters all while I loved eve ...more

I'm so excited to bring you this standalone new adult erotic romance novel. It's my first written in American English as it's set in Boulder City, Nevada. I've had the story in my head for some time, but had committed to other projects first, so it was great to finally get it down on paper. It's chock full of angst and drama and I hope it will pull at your heartstrings. I cried writing it, a number of times. Hope to see your thoughts when it's released at the end of August.

This book I guarantee you will not put down once you start, and you will have the biggest book hangover ever once you do finish. I can also guarantee that this book will take you on an emotional roller coaster of a journey and if like me, will rip your heart out, you will definetly need a box of tissues.

Title of the book will really make you feel exactly that...Torn! I was an emotional wreck reading this book. I don't understand how two people could go through so much in so little time but still manage to survive and love one another so fiercely, especially such young love like Sky and Nate's love for each other.

Nate Hudson was the bad boy with a reputation of bedding all the single females in his town. When Sky Torres moves to this small town in Nevada, she never expected to find herself head

Ladies Living in Bookland (review by Susan)

Torn....this book had me torn!!! I've got to say it's got to be the first book of CJ's that I've struggled with.
But by no means did I not enjoy it.

The new "girl next door" Sky Torres is the new girl in town, having moved to Nevada, (Boulder City) she was about to meet the notorious Hudson boys....and jeez what a journey she was about to take with them all.

We have Josh, the good guy, struggling to live in (or out!) of his brothers shadows.

An absolutely amazing read but I am warning you know, make sure you have tissues ready as C.J Fallowfield will rip your heart out and stomp all over it.....

Sky is new in town and it doesn't take long for her to meet the Hudson's. The Hudson's are brothers Nate and Josh and their cousin Billy. They are all spellbound by Sky and she must choose between them. When she makes her decision, things take a nasty turn of events and it looks like Sky's future happiness is in ruins.

There is a lot going on

Lulu's Review

So Lulu is Torn about her rating – in the end I have given it 3.5 Hearts – I found this story really slow and it honestly did not grab me until after Valentines day – then all hell breaks loose. The continual underlying story for Billy and his mum really annoyed me – either disclose the big secret or move on – I really wanted Nate & Josh to find out their

Sky Torres thought the sweltering heat of Boulder City was all she had to contend with when she set off on a morning bike ride, to familiarise herself with the new surroundings of the town she would now call home. Never did she envision a simple trip into the local town would send the Nevada temperatures soaring even higher, following an encounter with three locals, Nate, Josh, and Billy...The Hudson Boys.

For the boys, from only one glance at Sky, they are all instantly attracted to the new gir

What started off as just a simple story of boy meets girl, they fall in love with little drama, soon had me gripped with the struggles faced when you have choices to make when you would do anything for those you love. From breaking their hearts to saving them. Told in a dual point of view I fell in love along the way.

I haven't had the pleasure of reading a CJ Fallowfield book before, and I'm not sure how I've missed her effortless writing style, my head hon

Gritty yet sweet, tense yet tender - Torn has a little bit of everything, and boy does that make for a exciting and enjoyable read! This new adult book follows Sky, an inexperienced young woman, as she moves to a new town and meets three very different young men. All three of them help her adapt to her new life in their own way, and while she values her relationship with them all, her heart belongs to only one. But it's not an easy journey as she experiences love for the first time, and the twis ...more

You’ll need tissues, they said. Ain’t no amount of tissues was going to help me. Plain and simple – I was a mess. Don’t believe me? Ask my bestie about a voice message she received from me.

CJ does it again ! She has totally pulled the punches out of the bag with this one. a story that follows the new girl in town, Sky Torres. We meet Sky as she literally rides into town and meets the three Hudson boys who will each leave a mark on her heart in very different ways. The rough but sexy Nate, sweet bookish Josh and comedian Billy. Who will steal her heart, she knows who it shouldn't be, but will her heart listen?

4.5 gut wrenching stars

This book has me sooooo torn, pun intended. Torn because the author is amazing (first time reader, here) but also because the book was absolutely gut-wrenching...I love and hate it.

It's beautiful and sweet and also, brutal and shocking. What an emotional roller-coaster; the beginning of the story had me laughing and sighing over the young love then literally bawling and omg-ing my way through the rest of it. My heart is battered over all these characters have endured and

If you are looking for a book that will grab your heart, make it beat faster and then crush it all in one massive rollercoaster ride of ups and downs then this is the book.

Most women would love having one sexy guy lusting over her, but three? And all related? That is a complete clusterf*ck if I ever saw one!!! And totally asking for trouble!

"One would break her trust, one would break her heart and one would kill for her". This caption about the book had me from the beginning and it was such an emotional trip finding out which one of the guys in Sky Torres' life did each statement referenced. All three of the Hudson boys, Nate, Josh and Billy had a quality about them that intrigued Sky, but from the moment she saw Nate their connection was undeniable no matter how much Sky tried to down play

I will say that the ending of this book was its saving grace for me. I really am not a lover of Love Triangles and at one point this book had a Love Square. In saying that, Sky was not interested in Billy at all but there was still the interest from his side.

I felt this book went on forever and at the same time nothing was happening. I didn't get interested till near the end after yet another tragedy in their lives and the story seemed to come to life f
