Review: Torn by K.A. Robinson

Chloe hasn't had the best life. With a mother who is gone more often than not, she has had to raise herself. After graduating high school, she leaves to start a new life away at West Virginia University with her best friends Amber and Logan, determined to leave her demons in the past.

On her first day, she meets a stranger who takes her breath away at first sight. Until she met Drake, no one had ever sparked her interest. Now this tattooed and pierced bad boy is all she can think about, no matter how hard she fights it.

Falling for Drake was never part of her plans, but when it happens, things seem to do anything but fall into place.

Dealing with a tragic past, Drake has never cared about anyone else but himself and his band. But when Chloe takes the empty seat next to him in class, things start to change. Instantly drawn to her, he begins to wonder if one girl can take a cold hearted womanizer and change every part of him?

Long hidden feelings are revealed and friendships tested to the brink.


He laughed at my pitiful attempts. “Is that all you’ve got? What a wimp.” At his words, I started pushing him harder, but my hands slipped from his hip and I tumbled down onto him. My breath was sucked out of me as I landed on top of him and I felt those tingles everywhere my body pressed against his. I tried to shove away from him, but he grabbed my arms and pulled me up so I was fully on top of him, chest to chest, stomach to stomach, hips to hips. He was hard everywhere I touched and I felt my cheeks turning red as I looked at him.

His eyes had darkened until they were black with hunger as he stared at me, and a smirk appeared on his lips. “You know baby, if you wanted to get on top of me all you had to do was ask.”

3.5 Stars

Torn is a book about a girl who is literally torn between two boys. This is a love triangle and if you don't enjoy them, then I suggest you stop reading my review!

Chloe is just starting her first year of college with her best friends when she meets Drake,sexy, tattooed, and pierced bad boy.  From the moment she met him, there was a connection that went beyond lust. 

But there is another boy in the picture. Her best friend, Logan, who also just so happens to be in love with Chloe. It's obvious to everyone but her. 

I enjoyed Torn immensely. So, why the 3.5 stars? I didn't enjoy the love triangle. There was no question about who she should be torn between. I feel like she led Logan on and honestly I never felt any spark between them. Even as best friends, they were just bland as a couple. Boring even. There was no depth to Logan and Chloe's relationship, I feel like she was just with him out of convenience. Which in my opinion is far worse than just flat out rejecting him. 

There was no point in being torn between two men!  

Now Drake on the other hand. There was so much chemistry and sexual tension. It oozed sexual tension. I loved Chloe and Drake. If only the book had just been centered around them, I would have liked the book better. 

All in all Torn was filled with angst and I love angst. I look forward to the second book in the series. 

Thank you to NetGalley and Simon & Schuster for the review copy for an honest review.
