Book provided by author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
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.
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 and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story (the band's lead guitarist).
In the beginning, this book took me on a dark journey that had my jaw dropping so many times. It was dark, it was painful and it was devastating. I couldn't figure out where the story-line was going to go with this.
"You made me fear you.
You made me fear myself.
You locked me inside myself so deep that it took
me months to break free again."
It wasn't until the second half of the book that the dark clouds lifted and things were looking up. I loved Emily in this book because even though she thought she was weak, she was the strongest heroine for putting up with what she did.
My emotions were all over the place through this book - the author was able to make you hate Logan but then fall in love with him after a few more chapters. She brought out so many emotions in me while I read this and gave me so many different genres all wrapped up together in one story.
Emily is in a relationship with Logan and she is falling so fast for him but she doesn't give in to his pleas to join him on the road with his band. Next thing we know is that Emily is kidnapped and brought into a sex slave industry. She doesn't know how she got there or if she will ever get free; she more or less gives up all hope until the love of her life shows up....but he isn't there to help her.....no, he is all part of this.
Emily must submit in order to survive and who other must she submit to? Yes, you guessed it, Logan but then why are there times that he seems like her "old Logan" and not the cruel and calculated man who can be sadistic when around the others in the industry.
I am going to leave you off here because by writing any more will give the story away - just remember that this is only the first part of the book and the author continues to twist the plot left and right.
"Eme, us.....We're only broken when we're apart."
If you love to have your emotions in turmoil and wondering what the hell is going to happen next, then this is the perfect book for you.
I also have to add that the secondary characters in this book are jaw dropping, steamy and oozing that ALPHA sex pheromones!!
I can't wait to read the upcoming stories about these dominant males!
