Torn From You by Nashoda Rose
Amazon Blurb -
SPOILERS ARE COMING!
Wow! What can I say about this crapfest!?! Hang on cuz there's gonna be spoilers and I am going to rant about just how far fetched this book is and what a waste of good reading time. Why did I finish it? Huh, I think it became morbid curiosity after a bit. Look, I'm not one to rake an author over the coals, but this was just crazy. It has a disclaimer on Amazon due to the "dark" subject matter as you can see in the above blurb. Hhhmmm, being kidnapped and made a sex slave, could make a decent story. Hey, I really liked the movie Taken. Finding out your boyfriend is in the middle of it, well all bets are off, right? Nah, not here, in this story the female protagonist Emily finds she can't help herself and loves him. Never mind that he screws her in front of a bunch of disgusting men who "own" these poor girls. Even worse, Sculpt, yeah you read right that's his name and I'll touch on the dumb names in a bit too, throws in her face that she didn't stop him, she consented every time they
had sex. Uh WHAT!?!
This is a sad tormenting subject because this horror does happen. That they tried to make it a love story is ridiculous. Sculpt's father Raul is the head honcho of this barbaric mess. Sculpt's mother was his prisoner/slave, hence Sculpt being born. He is an MMA fighter and a singer in a rock band, ooooo weee how awesome. His mother escaped with him, now Raul wants payback and Sculpt want him dead. His father wants him to fight for him and Eme is the prize that gets dangled like a carrot for an incentive. See here's the thing, they were boyfriend and girlfriend and his father kidnapped her into his sick world and Sculpt went to rescue here. The rub? He never let her know he was saving her, his reason being that she wouldn't act afraid and the crew of depraved animals would know it was an act.
Foul language abounds by the guys and girls regardless whether there are ladies present or not in this
book. The love scenes are not romantic or moving at all. Sculpt is an overbearing gorilla and Emily is a poor excuse for a lead girl. One scene so hard to believe, a prisoner named Raven that Eme met before getting out is rescued by Deck after being held for 2 years and do they take her to a hospital or her family, or even the police? Nah, they let her stay with friends Georgie and Deck. How absurd and completely unbelievavle is that?
Now about those dumb names. While Sculpt's given name is Logan, only his mother and sometimes Emily call him that, then you have Crisis, Kite, and Ream. Someone give me a break. I don't recommend this book, and not because of the subject being too dark, but because it was terrible.
