Title: Torn from You (5 STAR)
Author: 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.
Tied up like a piece of meat then whipped.
I was alone and fighting to survive.
When I heard Sculpt’s voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong. Sculpt was there to break me.
*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content.
No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream’s story (the band’s lead guitarist).
When the synopsis for Torn from You talks about being shattered, it is definitely giving you the truth. I was definitely shattered when reading Nashoda Rose’s story.
To understand the beginning of Sculpt and Emily’s story, I highly suggest you read With You. You can still read Torn from You as a stand-alone, but With You shows you how Sculpt and Emily met. It gives you an inside to the workings of each other, and there are some guys you see in the With You that will make sense when you read Torn From You. There are purchase links listed below for With You.
There was an author that once said that the most beautiful stories sometimes are the hardest ones to tell. I consider Emily and Sculpt story beautiful. It is a story of a young woman who felt betrayal of the worst kind when she is kidnapped, tortured, and almost sold into slavery. She believes the man she fell in love with is ultimately responsible for her demise.
Watching Emily rising from victim to survivor was inspirational. She had every reason to be broken, but no matter what happened to her she never let obstacles beat her down.
Emily must fight the biggest fight of her life, and that is to live through being around men who are the epitome of evil. Emily must figure out who she can trust, and who will destroy her. Sculpt, is one that is on that list.
Sculpt is a closed off fighter and musician. He hides from his past, until one day his past catches up to him. Will he turn to evil, or will he risk everything for the woman who once loved him?
I can tell you that after reading Torn from You, it is a story that I will never forget. Trust me when I saw that it is worth putting on your TBR list.
I do advise that the story deals with a horrific situation. Readers be advised that due to subject matter, it is suggested for ages 18 or over.
Nashoda Rose lives in Toronto with her assortment of pets. She writes contemporary (NA) romance with a splash of darkness, or maybe it’s a tidal wave. Her novel “Torn from You” is the first in the Tear Asunder series. When she isn’t writing, she can be found sitting in a field reading with her dog at her side while her horses graze nearby. She loves interacting with her readers on Facebook and chatting about her addiction—books.
On Valentine’s Day when I was fourteen my dad was taking me out for dinner and instead drove up the driveway of a horse farm. There in the field was a big chestnut horse with a pink bow around his neck. It said, ‘To my daughter on Valentine’s Day Love Dad.’ I had my horse Sunny for twenty years.
I was eating chicken wings one day and suddenly I stopped, put it down and never touched meat again for 19yrs.
My mom used to give me what looked like the ‘bowl’ haircut when I was a kid. UGH.
I cut off a police officer making a left hand turn when I was 16 years old. He wasn’t happy and gave me a reckless driving charge.
Really rare…my horse Nash was born a twin out in my back field.
I can make the best French Onion soup and grilled cheese, but that’s about it.
I’ve had my hands inside my Newfie’s and Yorkie’s abdomens. Yep, I assisted in spaying them and did all their sutures.
I’m terrified of flying. I mean completely petrified. I had to go to the hospital before one flight because I was so stressed out my jaw locked shut. I still fly as I never want it to stop me from enjoying life, but damn it sucks.
I hand raised several baby raccoons over the years for my work. One of them never left. I named him Buddy and had him for seven years. He had a cat door in my window to leave whenever he wanted. He never did. Buddy slept in bed with me, loved to have a shower, opened the fridge and cleaned the cats. Also, he used a litter box. Buddy died of a kidney tumor ten years ago and I still miss him to this day (But I never want another one, LOL).
I did my course for dog Massage Therapy.
I went to boarding school for two years and loved it. I also worked there in the summers looking after the horses as it was also a camp.
I’m not a shopper. Don’t like trying on clothes or shoes or looking for that perfect outfit. But I do love purses.
I smashed my car into a hydro pole when I was in my late teens. The wires fell on my car and I was so scared I jumped out. A big big no no. The cop couldn’t figure out how I was still alive. When she looked down at my feet, she saw I was wearing rain boots. They saved my life.
When I’m feeling down, I buy a fish. A live fish. Currently, I have three fish tanks at work and three at home.
Writing about men with tattoos has made me want one, so I’ve finally decided on the perfect image to get on my side. A calligraphy style horse head.
I have a scar on my left leg from a German Sheppard bite and another running the length of my right outer thigh from a coat hanger sticking out of a garbage bag.
I love to try to fix everything myself. So, I was re-flooring my spare bedroom and ripping out the old carpeting when the X-Acto knife slipped and went straight into my upper thigh.
Never been married. Just haven’t met the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with. Oh well, book boyfriends are hot. Bonus…I can make my own book boyfriends.
I’d rather swallow a box of nails then do any kind of public speaking.
I have a Red-footed Tortoise named ‘Bucket’.
