A USA Today best seller.
Warning: This book contains some very disturbing situations, graphic violence, strong language, and sexual content. For listeners over 18 years.
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, and I like sweet.
Then it all shattered. Kidnapped. Starved. Beaten. I was alone and fighting to survive. When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong.

"HE WAS PART OF THIS...HE DID THIS TO ME :("
When I read the description I was curious as to how a Rock Star would be involved with kidnapping women to be sex slaves. We do find out the connection but I still had a hard time dealing with how Logan treated Emily. It's obvious that he treats her different when they're alone then when she's put on sex slave display.
Emily is a strong willed woman and she endures many punishments because of this:
- being whipped
- kicked in stomach, side, head
- drug by hair
- sexually violated
just to name a few
I'm not giving anything away but I will give you a few quotes from the first two chapters:
"I ended up having to pee in the corner of the room. I never felt so dirty in all my life. I felt like an animal and I sobbed as I did it. It was humiliating."
"’Logan’s voice swam into my trembling body and wrapped me into it’s warmth I started sobbing...Logan had come for me he’s here to take me away to stop the pain."
Emily is let down from the ceiling and falls to the floor. She looks over her shoulder for Logan, "When I saw him my heart stopped for a few seconds then started beating erratically it was him but nothing in his eyes was the man I knew he was cold and expressionless as he starred down at me not a glimmer of sympathy in his eyes. I recognized nothing of the man I had fallen in love with, hope died as the realization hit me he was part of this he did this to me."
Man-O-Man now you know why this book sucks you in and doesn't let go.
Mackenzie Harte gave a profound performance. My first book by Nashoda Rose but it most certainly will not be my last.
Absolutely worth the credit and/or $$.
"Not A Romance"
She was very good, however she is not the reason I stopped listening.
This book has nothing to do with Rock Stars or Fighters. This book is about sex slavery. No romance just rape, torture and bad writing.
You've been warned.
I love a book that takes something from the real world that most of us would rather pretend that it doesn't happen. The sex slave industry is real and happens more likely then anyone from a stable home would like to think. This book puts it in your face and then also addresses the potential issues with recovery from being a slave. If you don't want to put your head in the sand then this is a book for you. There is love, sex, betrayals, and romance. Some of the reviews caution readers not to listen based on the content. I say listen to it and open your eyes. Fantastic all around.
This audiobook was certainly gripping. Warning: there are some things in this story that may be triggers for some people, including abusive situations for women. The story of a musician who falls in love with a young woman who has low self esteem. He becomes her first lover and she is finally looking forward to the future when she is kidnapped and taken to Mexico by human traffickers. Unfortunately, her new boyfriend is with the bad guys. I'm not going to say anything else or the story will be spoiled. Narration was okay, I just wish that Sculpt/Logan had his own voice.
In the beginning I felt the narrators voice was a bit too old sounding for the young age of the Female main, but it grew on me by the end. Her performance averall was good, but wish she would have given Male main a bit more variation to the speed of speach, it never varied much no matter the context but again seemed better toward the end of the book. Overall I liked the story and narration.
Dark and twisted and sexy. Yet, had me laughing at times too. Don't buy if you like vanilla romance as this is definitely not that. I like the darker erotica, but I was hesitant before I bought it because I was not sure I would like the storyline. So glad I did! I thought it was so well written and it kept me intrigued and at the edge of my seat, all the while keeping my heart fluttering with steamy scenes and perfectly described emotions and scenes. Liked it so much that I finished it within 1 day. Can't wait to purchase the next book in the series.
"amazing book----amazing audio"
discloser- Ive read torn from you and loved it, now when i "re-read" i mean listened i enjoyed in a diffrent level.
can't compare it - very special book
all of it :)
altough i wanted to make it longer haha
love it!!! you really should try it
"Raw, Emotional, Gripping Loved it!"
Torn From You is a dark, gripping read, dragging you into the world of slavery & women trafficking. It's so intense, that you literally can't breathe at certain points of the story. Nashoda really dug deep into this genre, lacing it with fear, survival & hope.
The second part of the book helps balance on the darkness of the first half. It allows you to to see that the heart is a powerful thing & no matter how hard you try, you can not hide from destiny. The way love & survival are entwined is perfect..
No I haven't, this is the first one & I have to say her voice was mesmerising. I found she easily pulled me into the narrative & held me there.
To many to choose from without giving away spoilers. I will say that I loved Logan & Emily hard. Their story is complex, heart wrenching & tear jerking.
Absolutely loved this. It's not a sappy love story, it's dark, powerful, tense & hard hitting. Be prepared to be swept away.
