REVIEW: Torn from You (Tear Asunder #1) by Nashoda Rose

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.


(It is recommended to read "With You" the novella first, however not necessary). 

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years.* 

This is a love story with some dark elements. Dark contemporary romance. No cliffhanger.

4.5 ENGRAVED Stars

I was completely blown away by this book! I loved the novella, With You and while it ended on a huge cliffhanger, I had NO CLUE as to what was going to happen next!!


The story begins right where the novella ended, Emily's kidnapped and awakens in a dark, dank basement. She has been brought into a sick, dark world of violence, humiliation, torture and the worse part, Logan's a part of it! Of course, there's A LOT more to the story than that and I don't want to give it away so I won't say more.


I absolutely adore a story that immerses me into its pages, its words and I get so caught up in the characters, the journey, the emotions. This book did EXACTLY that!!


This story grabbed a hold of me from the very beginning and had my emotions in a vice grip for the first half of this book. And I spent the second half, like Emily, picking up the pieces of my broken heart. While it may not sound like it, this is a story about an endless love.


“We were torn apart, because Eme – I’d never have stayed away from you any other way.”

What I loved most about this story was the bond and love between Logan and Emily. While it was torn, shredded and appeared to be destroyed because of what Emily endured, Logan never gives up.


“You wrecked me.” I barley recognized my ragged whisper as my voice. “I was scared of you. I…I still am.”


Both Emily and Logan are formidable forces. Emily suffered unimaginable torture both physically and emotionally yet she's strong. She may have cracks and feel broken but she's not. She endured and she survived.


When Logan reappears in Emily's life. She struggles with her feelings for Logan because she needs to move on. She feels like she can never trust him again and that he'd be a reminder of what she endured.


All through this dark, tumultuous and gut wrenching journey, Logan's determined and set on getting Emily back. His love for Eme is breathtakingly beautiful and never ending.


I highly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a dark story with intense action, raw emotion and a love like no other. And if you've not read a Nashoda Rose book before, you MUST! Looking forward to Kat and Ream's story next!
