Torn by K.A. Robinson

Two people with battered souls are thrust together unexpectedly, leaving a profound impact on each other’s lives.

In K.A. Robinson’s USA Today bestselling debut novel, Torn,Chloe hasn’t had the easiest childhood. With a mother who was absent most of the time, she practically had to raise herself. Determined to start a new life and leave her demons behind, she heads to West Virginia University with her best friends Amber and Logan. On the first day of classes, she spots a student who takes her breath away. Drake is a pierced, tattooed bad boy, and no matter how hard she tries to fight it, he’s all she can think about.

Drake has never cared about anyone other than himself, but when Chloe takes the empty seat next to him in class, he is instantly drawn to her. Drake is left wondering whether this girl can take his cold, womanizing heart and alter him forever.

Falling for each other was never a part of their plan, and when it happens, things do anything but fall into place. Long-hidden feelings are revealed and friendships are tested to the brink as Chloe and Drake become helplessly entwined in each other’s love.

My Review

LOVED this book! I finished it in a day. Tattoos. Piercings. Bad Boy. Chloe takes a seat next to Drake on her first day in class at WVU. Now she can't get her mind off of him. She sees again again later, and finds out he is the lead singer in a band.  Drake isn't one to have a relationship. He goes through the women, the groupies, with no thoughts about after. He is feeling a connection to Chloe, like she feels with him. Once they start to to fall for each other, enters the "triangle". You knew that was bound to happen.

Tempers, sex, love, hate.....come get it all in Torn! Come see their mistakes, and journey they made to end up where they did.

As with all books there are downsides. I did find that Chloe was too emotional. Cried a lot (which I do when it comes to books, just not IRL...hehe). There were things that she did in the book, that could have been handled better, but at the same time she is young. Starting her first year in college. I know I had done things around that age that could have been handled better or just not done it at all. Life is for exploring and learning. She made her mistakes, the best is to learn from it and correct it if you can.

I would have loved to have the story from Drakes POV as well as Chloe's. I think it would have made this book even better!
