TORN BETWEEN TWO: This is my first time reading anything by this author but I have to confess I just had to sign up for this because of that damn cover!! My name is Kat and I am a cover hoe!!
This took me a while to get into, first chapter I didn't connect with the story, it felt like Sam was well under what her age stated her to be, an immaturity level came across, but as my reading progressed I connected with her character after more details of her upbringing came up ...more
This is the first time I've read anything from this author and now, she's got me hooked! I mean right from the very first chapter- I read the entire book in one sitting, I didn't stop until I finished it and once that happened I went online, bought the next book and read that book until that book finished. Can you see me rambling on and on? I loved this book! I don't usually like love triangle romances.. I mean someone always ends up getting hurt at the end..tsk tsk.. but I ...more
I can't stop smiling! It's like a high I cannot go down to. It feels like I was in love all over again.
Hawke is the dark knight and Josh is the contrast.
And at the same time I really want to cry with Josh's situation and just to be clear I am Team Josh here ladies and gents! No girl, even if it's near euphoria level of horniness has to feel that way beacuse a woman deserves better than a Hawke personality.
Can you imagine you will be left on th ...more

This book was chosen for me by Leslie in our Pick for Me challenge. I flew through this book and holy cliffhanger!
Samantha is a relationship kind of girl, focusing on her career as a pastry chef. When she goes to a concert and gets the chance to meet her idol, Hawke Calvin, lead singer of Def Deception, she is totally starstruck. The beginning was a little over the top and hard to believe with their initial meeting, and this is why I on ...more

I'm still in a glass case of emotion. I read Torn Between Two in one sitting. I couldn't put it down.
I don’t read love triangles stories. Like ever.
When I have all these assumptions in my head, Mia Kayla proves me wrong. The writing was uplifting, enticing, and captivating. Be ready for the roller coaster of emotions. Once you get into the book, you won’t want to leave.
Samantha was at a point of her life, when she was still struggling about the p ...more
I loved how perfectly imperfect all of the characters were. Samantha (Sam) is driven, caring, and witty, but underneath that she is still struggling to find herself and dealing with the pain of her past. Hawke is cocky, intense, a ...more
Here's how I know:
This duet is in my Top Ten Books of All Time (as in one of the very best stories I've ever read).
This story is simply the most beautiful, uplifting, heart-breaking, love-affirming, soul-shattering roller coaster I've ever read. I can only say I am so beyond grateful that Mia Kayla took me on such a breath-taking ride. I'm not going to tell you this book is flawless because the beauty o...more
So, small town girl Samantha (an aspiring pastry chef) finds herself having to make a choice between two very different guys. Should the small town girl choose the rudderless rocker or the soon to be lawyer? They all have a similar troubled past but as I go al ...more
(Rating and review for both books)
How do I keep this review short and still have it encapsulate every emotion this duet evoked in me? There's simply no way I can; I don't have that kind of skill. This duet packs so much! The Torn Duet fucked with my feelings. It was a roller coaster of emotions and I ate it ALL up. I'm a sucker for (well written) love-triangles and I’m happy to add another amazing one to my Goodreads shelf *cheers, pom-poms and all*

"He loved me. There was no doubt. He loved me with all of his being, and in that moment, in the silence, I knew I'd fallen for him, too."
I LOVE TRIANGLES. If you've followed me for any length of time, you would totally know this. I love the push and pull, the intense emotions from all parties involved, the undeniable draw to each person involved....because it's REAL! I don't really care for outright cheating; blatant disrespect for the person you are with. That's not the draw ...more
After attending a concert Sam gets to meet the band and more importantly Hawke her schoolgirl crush. At their first meeting he acts like the typical arrogant rockstar and he nicknames her his 'sunshine'.

What is surprising is that each and every one of Mia's books captured my heart and soul and left me feeling blissfully complete by the end. Mia is one of the few authors that can pull deep emotions from within me. From ...more

Mia Kayla is an excellent writer. Her plots are so believable, the writing phenomenal, and the feelings extremely hard to get over with! She always leave me in a state of book hangover!
I have a thing for rock stars stories. Maybe its the glam, the high from the concerts, I don't know, I just know I get really excited to read what will happen in these characters life.
In Torn Between Two, you get two tormented characters. They feel right together, Sam is a fan of Hawke's music ...more
I've always been a big fan of Mia Kayla. She's the queen of angst, but its never forced. She sucks you you in and makes you care about her characters so you really feel that push and pull. Torn Between Two may be my favorite book of hers yet.
Hawke and Josh...I completely understood Sam's pull to Hawke and why she kept going to him when it became more and more of a bad idea. Like her, you know he's not good but you can't stay away. Josh is sweet and loyal, and irresistibl ...more
