I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
Torn picks up where we were left hanging in Connected. River and Dahlia are about to leave for Vegas to tie the knot but everything changes after receiving one phone call. From beginning to the end, this love story between Dahlia and River will take your breath a way. Kim Karr manages to deliver a very passionate, heartfelt, steamy and emotional story. In this book, we discover many buried lies and secrets that are revealed, the strongest of bonds and loyalties are tested. There may be lots of drama, but its perfectly balanced by intense, beautiful, steamy scenes that we patiently anticipate from the author. They're not only sexy delicious but deeply meaningful. It's what keeps them strongly connected. This is just a beautiful love story between two soul mates who must learn to trust and have faith in one another despite all the obstacles life provides them. I won't spoil it for you so that's all your gonna get from me! Oh btw... the romance in this book is truly smokin' hot!
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I loved the first book Connected, but the cliffhanger ending really annoyed me. Thankfully the conclusion to this 2-part series was absolutely amazing. I couldn't imagine a more perfect ending for this storybook couple.
The love between River and Dahlia is off-the-charts romantic and I enjoyed the journey of these two soul mates through good times and bad. This was a satisfying end to a beautiful, romantic and emotional series. Just perfect!
If you're looking for a great credit-worthy listen then look no further.
Give me a Hot Sexy Book, with a good story to listen to, have that "OH MY" sigh, Love most of what I have, but want more. Tell me it ALL!
I AM GOING WITH RIVER, HE HAD TO ENDURE A LOT.
Christian did a great job with Ben voice, even though I think he does a sexy River. Also Veronica, I would watch out for her.. She is going to be one of the up and coming voices you will love to listen to. They both were outstanding
yes, and I did, all day today..
I waited for this book to come out, and it was killing me. After reading the first one, I was out of my mind. I just knew that cliffhanger was going to destroy me and a group of others that were following Ms. Karr books. And we are very happy this book was written the way it was.. . But tonight I am proud to say we are Happy and tears were flowing over the love these two have for one another. I got to say this as well. Nothing was boring about this book. She wrote everything that was needed to keep them in the space they were at from book one. It was good to see emotions, fears, and pure anger come out in this, it was needed to make this book what it had to be. Second time I have said this.. These are books that made women read.. And they are hard to find. Pay attention authors.. this is what we love, adore and want.
Listening to all things Kristen Ashley
Torn is just as good as the first book, she cleared up all the mysteries and leave just enough hanging to set the foundation for her third book, excellent writing, i felt the emotions in this book. I also liked how she never protrayed Ben as a bad guy, I felt so sorry for Ben and I completely love his journals. I hope she got Bell and Ben hooking up by the end of this series, I felt like those two have a deep connection, apart from sharing a child. River and Dal, what a Love connection those two have! All in all I highly recommend you listen to this book.
Will do anything for books!
When I originally read the description of these books, I was concerned that we would get a wishy washy woman trying to decide between two men, which I don't mind to a point, but gets old. Honestly, if it's right, you better know it. That was NOT the case here!!! I am so happy with this book, there is A LOT of heartache and pain, a lot of unbelievable situations but this isn't real life, it is a book, that is why we read them, not to live in the land of laundry, dishes and kids but to enjoy a fantasy land. This book is not really fantasy in that way, but in some areas were a little far fetched, mostly the Ben stuff. BTW...I hate Ben. I have nothing positive to say about him, I know some people like him and that's great, but I don't. For some reason even from the first book I knew he was a weasel.
This book is of course hard for Dahlia but also for River, he has a lot of stuff going on with him too, I cried for both of them several times. But all in all, I like them both. HUGE revelations here and lots of "WOW!! Didn't see that coming" moments, but so good.
I would and have recommended this series and will continue to follow it as the new books are released.
Loved this book! Again I have to say that it is similar to the book Thoughtless only different storyline. The characters in the book will draw you in. There is action, suspense and fun. You will laugh and cry but will enjoy it all. You will be conflicted between loving and hating Ben and who you want to win, River or Ben. You will not be disappointed in this story. There are lots of little sub plots and you can see how spin off books could be a possibility. The narration was awesome. I have no negatives other than I want more from this author. You will not regret spending the credit.
Great conclusion to a great 2 part book. It didn't drag on letting the pieces fall into place so that River & Dahlia get their happily ever after. Their love story was romantic without being overly mushy which is not always easily found. I'm hoping the author continues with maybe Ben's story and maybe the others. But if not, at least River & Dahlia are finally together & happy.
Sorry I waited for the audio version.
Everything. He is perfect and attentive she grows from a mouse to a tiger.
When first listening it took some time. But I enjoyed them both and thought they were a perfect combo and should be done more
Yes laughed and cried. And enjoyed each emotion.
Read it what are you waiting for. You will love it.
I didn't enjoy the first book, so why did I think I needed to know what happened so much that I got the second one?
I will say that it did not play out as predictably as I anticipated, but there seemed to be a few steps missing as Dahlia and Ben's relationship resolved itself.
Not worth the credit.
