Publisher's Summary

"I'm not your enemy, Quinn. And I'm sure as hell not your prince charming, so stop looking at me like you're not sure which one I am."  

Six years he's been gone, and then he falls straight into my bed. Literally. And I know my torment is only beginning. 

I waited my whole life for Zee St. James to open his eyes and see me. But Port Clover's official bad boy would never view me as anything more than his best friend's little sister.  

He shattered my heart into thousands of pieces when he left. And I spent years trying to forget him. Trying to banish the memory of that one kiss.  

I thought I'd moved on. But when he comes crashing back into my life, or rather my apartment - the one he still owns - I'm defenseless against him.  

Just when I think I might finally get my happily ever after, a web of secrets and betrayal threaten to unravel the hope I finally found in his arms.  

And I'm faced with the soul-baring question: Is loving Zee worth the torment he inflicts?  

Torment is the first, stand-alone novel in the brand-new Savages and Saints series, and a spin off of the Wild Irish series from Amazon Bestselling Author C.M. Seabrook

Even Bad Boys are lovable.

Torment is the perfect name for this book. it is full of torment. Just when you think things are changing for the better, another curve is thrown in.

Quinn has 4 older brothers. Her life is torture because of how over peoyective they are. Her one true love is a mess and has moved away, leaving her to fantasize about seeing him again.

Z knows he is a mess and a complete jerk. He leaves all that he knows to find a way out of his mess.

When Quinn is about to fantasize once again about Z, she realizes that she is not alone. The romance from this point is fast and sweet. Twists and turns all along the way keep the reader on their toes. I could not put this story down.

Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St Claire narrated this story with such animation that it made the characters come to life. Each character was narrated just as I would have imagined them to be. The narration truly enhanced everything about this book.

❤️ Zee & Quinn ❤️

Torment is about a boy who not only experienced the tragic loss of someone he loved at young age but also endured the abuse of a parent. It’s about a boy who grows into a broken man that doesn’t believe he’s worthy of anyone’s love. Zee has been running from his past and burying his sorrows in alcohol and drugs. Finally hitting rock bottom Zee decides it’s time for a change. This decision has him going back to his hometown to face the people he’s hurt and try to right the wrongs of his past.
Quinn has loved Zee ever since they were children. Nothing ever happened between the two growing up because Zee was her brother’s best friend. That was until one night they shared a kiss and then Zee disappeared. Six years later and now Zee’s back in town. Quinn is angry with him but still loves him. Seeing past the facade Zee puts on makes Quinn realize just how much pain he’s in. Now she’s determined to get him to open up to her and show that he is worthy of love. Also to show him that he doesn’t need to carry his burdens alone.
I really enjoyed Quinn and Zee’s story and can’t wait for the next book.

a great story

I really enjoyed this book! CM Seabrook gave us a well written, yet emotional, story about Zee St. James and Quinn. Quinn is Zee's best friends sister who has been in love with him for years. I loved the duet narration in this book. Not to mention Gunnar Qualen has a deep, sexy voice that I loved to listen to.

A strong story!

I simply love this authors work the way she captivates the readers/listeners from the first letter and right through to the end.

The narrators brought the characters to life quite well and made the protagonists insecurities and feelings shine through.

Quinn and Zee!

Quinn has been in love with her brother’s best friend Zee for years even after he left town six years with no explanation and no contact.

Bass guitarist Zee has completed rehab and returned home. He needs to make amends for the mistakes in his past and that includes Quinn. Although she knows it will only end in heartbreak once again she can’t stay away from him but will the secrets he holds destroy his relationships with the only people he has ever cared about?

This is an emotional story full of drama and angst and a great start to a new series. Zee is damaged by his past and Quinn sees the man he is not the mistakes he has made. The emotions and nuances of the narrators made it feel like you were feeling what the characters were feeling. I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author.

Second chance romance with all the feels!

Zee St. James and Quinn Savage have a long history together. Quinn has always been in love with Zee, but he’s her brothers best friend therefore completely off limits. When he leaves Quinn desperately tries to move on, but can’t seem let feelings go. Now it’s six years later and Zee is back. Everything is different. They’re different. Secrets that have surfaced have changed the game, but the feelings are still the same.

This book was so freaking good! When C. M. Seabrook announced a spinoff from the Wild Irish series I was really looking forward to Zee’s story and I was not disappointed. I loved Zee! He’s not just your stereotypical hero. There so many layers to him. He’s been through so much pain and closes him self off to being loved. I wanted to hug him and then bang him. Quinn was great! He girl always knew what she was feeling was true and went with it. The way she loves Zee and wants to peel back his layers and show him he’s worthy of love made my heart happy. I love a good second chance romance and this story and couple made me feel everything right along with them and also root for them the whole time. Their story is beautiful even when it hurts.

Narration by Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire was great. They’re both new to me narrators, but quickly won me over. They brought Zee and Jenna to life effortlessly and injecting he perfect amount of passion this story needs. 5 Stars.

Heartbreaking and wonderful~

I won a audible copy of Torment (Savages and Saints) and could not be more thrilled to share my review with you.

From the blurb you get the idea that Quinn has been in love with her brothers best friend Zee forever.
When her chance to kiss him and show him her attraction, he kisses her back then pushes her away just to disappear.
Six years later, Zee makes a reappearance in his home town with a heavy heart and a still lingering attraction to Quinn.
We follow what slowly becomes more than a friendship but Zee has a lot of demons to work through and the question is will Quinn be the one to help him or will she realize there is just so much one heart can take.

Their story is beautiful even when Zee's makes my heart ache for the dark place his soul is in. To carry a burden for so long, make it through hell and still come out a good man shows the strength within him. It just takes the right circumstance to show him the way to the light.

I loved the story and YES....I want more. The author found her way onto my must read list, if all she writes is as well written as this book I'm in for a very long ride. Friends to lovers, brothers best friend, this book has a lot to offer.

Also, since this was an audible book I need to share that the narration was amazing. Both Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire brought the characters to life.

Impossible not to fall in love

Stories with character history are one of the things I love to listen to. Zee St. James and Quinn Savage have known each other forever. Zee is Quinn's brother's best friend and Quinn's childhood love. When Zee leaves, Quinn tries to move on, but in her heart, she knows he is the one. When he returns home, 6 years later, things have changed, secrets are bared and life may never be the same. Will there be forgiveness and second chances? A spinoff of the amazing Wild Irish Trilogy, this first book in the Savages and Saints series delivers a cast of characters that are interesting, full of love, friendship and emotional baggage that leave you wanting to get to know better! CM Seabrook always writes with tortuous passion and such well developed plots and characters, I feel like I am there, living the story with them. Zee and Quinn are a couple that is easy to cheer for, cry for and love. Can't wait for book 2!

I always enjoy narrations by Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire. They perform a duet with ease and flawlessness bringing the story to life with passion and all the feels.

Emotional Second-Chance Romance.

Torment is a brother’s best friend, and an emotional second chance at love story. It is book 1 in the Savages and Saints series which is a sort of spin off of the Wild Irish series, but can be read completely as a standalone.

“Already I can feel my darkness pulling its heavy weight across my soul. If only there was a way to live in the sun.”

Zee St James ran off abandoning 18 yr old Quinn leaving her with only the memory of his kiss. He left with burdens and when he returns he arrives with more secrets to be revealed.

“I can’t love someone who, despite his confession, doesn’t love me. Because love fights. It struggles. It perseveres through the worst storms and comes out stronger.
The only thing Zee has to offer me is torment.”

I was able to listen to this on audiobook and really enjoyed the narration. It definitely brought the story to life for me.

Torment a second chance romance

C.M. Seabrook wrote an emotional second chance love story that has many facets. Zee is recovering addict who is bouncing back from rock bottom. Quinn is the girl who always loved him from childhood. I'm not a fan of guys who run away when things get rough, but Zee needed to grow up. The story has some unexpected twists.The ending was wonderful!
The narration on this book was good, but I didn't think they sounded the ages of Quinn and Zee. Gunnar Qualen has a Dennis Quaid like voice, which is very smooth and rich. Jenna St. Claire didn't sound like she was in her early twenties, but she is good. The narrators have chemistry, and express fitting emotions.
