Publisher's Summary

He's loved me since the day I was born. He's taken care of me. He's awakened me.

Tor is my father's best friend. Fifteen years older than me, he's always been my protector. The one I should never, ever want. But I was born to be his.

She's always loved me. She's shattered me. She's healed me.

Kenzi is my best friend's daughter. I held her the day she was born, and I never let go. She's forbidden to me. But she's the only one who really gets me.

We're slowly being torn apart by everything we love. Everything we want. Everything we desire. And now I want the one thing I can't have. I want her.

    Story
    "Forbidden, Taboo, But Oh, So Right!"

    Who can say they've loved the same person in so many ways, all their life.

    My first Carian Cole book and WOW did she ever enthrall me with a rare, unforgettable, one in million love story. It was taboo, walked the line, and seared a place in my heart. Hooked from the first chapter, glued to my headphones, I know, no matter how many more romance stories I listen too in the future, I will always remember this one vividly. While this story may not be for some, I LOVE It!

    Some spoilers:
    A well written, passionate, poetic, story that builds angst, chemistry, love and sexual tension by alternating between the past and present. We see Tor and Kenzi's love grow, and transform over her lifespan. He's been in her life daily from day one, and was there to take care of Kenzi when her parents had to be away. She's grown up thinking of him as Uncle Tor, but as she reaches adulthood her feelings grow deeper. She no longer thinks of him as the uncle who was there to kiss her boo-boos, read her a bedtime story, or help navigate her teen years, but rather as a man that makes her burn with passion and her heart flutter. The flashback scenes really show how much Tor cared and loved Kenzi throughout the years, and built the angst Tor felt for developing deeper emotional feelings for Kenzi. But as she matures, he cannot deny their connection, and the love they have for each other. Kenzi's becomes the one women who truly understands Tor, she loves him and wants to be with him. As they accept and give into their feelings, love and start a relationship, there is one hurdle in their way, not everyone will accept or understand their relationship. Their love will be put to the test, when the lines have been crossed, truth comes out, and friends feel betrayed.

    The narrations was awesome! Both Noelle Bridges, and Mason Lloyd performance was flawless; they really delivered on all the various emotions, and characters.

    Torn was an amazing one of kind romance that may not be for everyone, but was truly unforgettable, and filled with so many beautiful poetic words and quotes. Well worth the time, and credit! Carian Cole has a passion for animals and it radiates throughout the story. As a dog lover, I found these scenes just as touching and heart-warming as Tor and Kenzi's love story.

    I just have to roll my eyes and say 'really' when someone writes in a review that a fiction book was not realistic...come on now 'really'

    Story
    "MORAL TURPITUDE?"

    This is an Ashes & Embers spinoff. I wish Ashes & Embers was somewhere in the title so people know this. I found out by reading Amazon book reviews.

    This book will push your moral boundaries. IMO you'll have one of three reactions:

    1. Moral Disgust
    2. Sympathy
    3. Understanding

    Let's add a fourth:

    4. All of the above...which are the emotions I went thru.

    I can add a fifth emotion...IRRITATION. After listening for 6 hours I almost stopped because of Carian Cole dragging out the push-n-pull dilemma. So I took a break and when I started back listening to the second half the story picked up.

    In previous books there is the mention of Asher's wife, Kenzie's mother...Ember. But only that she's not around and Asher is in a dark place. We do find out in this story what happened to Ember but no details. I've read that Asher's story is next so we'll find out exactly what happened to Ember.

    I adored Torn and his family's dog rescue and shelter. There were parts of the dog rescues that tore up my heart.

    I love this series. Corian Cole incorporates unusual real life issues with a fiction story that takes you thru an array of emotions. It's not about a band on tour (the band is in the background) it's about the lives of the band members and their family issues & challenges. The family also has a lot of love, romance, and sexy times.

    Noelle Bridges and Mason Lloyd gave a great performance.

    Worth a credit/$$ - I'm on the fence with this one, as I was with Vandal.

    Story
    "Wow, just wow!"

    I honestly wasn't sure about this book when I picked it up, because the premise seemed a bit... skeevy. I hate to even say that now that I read it, but that being said, I'm so glad I gave it a chance.

    This was a beautiful love story from start to finish, and it encompassed every kind of love, not just the romance of falling in love.

    I both read and listened to this one, both ways are enjoyable, although the female voice in the audiobook added to my sketchy feelings in the beginning, because she didn't transfer to a more mature/less mature voice (real time vs flashback memories) for Kenzi. Hearing a "little girly" sounding speech pattern for a "mature beyond her years" 18 year old almost ruined it. I tucked that little issue aside though and just got lost in the story.

    The questionable subject matter was handled so beautifully that any taboo feelings you might have had going in are washed away, and you can't help but wish for Kenai and Tor to get their HEA.

    Absolutely lovely!

    "can't get enough"

    I can not put into words how much emotion in felt listening to this book. Carian is a superb writer who makes you connect to all the characters not just the main ones. The way she handled this taboo subject was nothing short of class. can not wait to read more from her

    "what a dream come true!!!"

    well this was a dream come true...I can't believe what a great book this was and I lost almost two nights of sleep for it but I absolutely loved every minute...I never thought it was possible for tor and kinsey to find there HEA but I'm so happy they did...I went thru times of tears not seeing how this could possibly work for then but I'm so glad I was proven wrong. I made me wish for a hot Mr. tor for myself....I'd definitely love to read more of this author books . I definitely give this book a BIG 10 stars......love Tor ....the most...wow!!!! just so HOT!!!!

    "Couldn't decide if I was ok with it or not"

    Very well written, with lots of details to help you understand what these two people are going through. Funny how you feel about people who aren't related but grow up in a family unit, is it really taboo or just goes against society Norms?
    I have a friend that married her adopted cousin. The whole family went crazy like it was incest. I think the biggest issues with them is the age difference. Author does a good job of dealing with sensitive subject.

    "Wrecked"
    Where does Torn rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's up there as one of the ripped my guts out great emotional roller coasters.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Tor. He is everything. He goes through the moral dilemmas of their relationship, but he never denies how he feels. He is everything. Who he is as a person, how he is as a partner. It's everything.


    Which character – as performed by Noelle Bridges and Mason Lloyd – was your favorite?

    I preferred Noelle Bridges in this. Mason Lloyd has a great voice, but it was not the right one for Tor.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. Absolutely. It was such a rollercoaster. The flashbacks had you all over the place. It gave you an indepth look into how powerful their connection has always been. He's always been who she needed him to be. He was her protector, her friend, and in the end her love. Its always been them against the world.


    Any additional comments?

    **SPOILER**
    Without the epilogue I would have been thoroughly disappointed with the end. Even with it, I'm still kind of bitter about how she came back for a month without telling or seeing Tor. Literally ripped my guts out. Ten seconds later she's agreeing to go to dinner with him. Like, hello Kenz, you should have let him know you were at least coming back. What if they hadn't run into each other? How long would she have waited? The married with baby part definitely helped mellow it out a little though. Just a little.

    "Great listen"

    Just finished listening to this and what a lovely story that I have no hesitation in recommending , but then I have loved all of Carina stories they are very different and written with passion , insight ..
    I loved the animal rescue which sadly is far too common placed, so this had a pull on my heart strings ..... Tor , a gentle giant with standards and a fierce love for is "niece" but as you listen to the story Carina develops the characters with real warmth feeling , thanks for a great listen and loved the narrators as always
