Torn by K. A. Robinson

So I had to start a new series recently because I was going to be part of a blog tour of a newly released book. Besides I love this author very much and I wanted to read more of her work. So when I found out that Tainted by K. A. Robinson was going to be needing reviews done, I went and picked up Torn which is the first book in the series. Oh my goodness am I glad that I did.


Two people with battered souls are thrust together unexpectedly, leaving a profound impact on each other’s lives.
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 grabs 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.
Developing feelings for each other was never a part of their plan, and when it happens, things do anything but fall into place. Long-hidden emotions are revealed and friendships are tested to the brink as Chloe and Drake become helplessly entwined in each other’s love.

This book has everything I could ask for. It has a hot rocker with a troubled past, a strong lead female character with a troubled past of her own, the quirky best friend, and a love triangle. Chloe is the girl that everyone wants to be around. She is strong minded, doesn't give a crap about what other people think, is beautiful without knowing it, and has her own sense of style which her best friend Amber calls rocker chic. She knows what she wants and is going after it.

What she doesn't anticipate is Drake. But from the first time she sees him in class, she can't get him out of her head. When she finds out that he is in a band, that just makes him more interesting. But things get complicated when her other best friend Logan reveals his feelings.

Knowing that Logan is the safer person for her and her plans, she decides to give things a try with him. But just because Logan is who she thinks she should be with doesn't keep her heart from wanting Drake. And it doesn't help that Drake keeps drawing her in without even trying. Things end up heated one day during a study session and Chloe does something that changes everything.

I have to give this book a solid 5 stars. I absolutely loved this book and had to start on book 2 Twisted immediately. If you are looking to start a new series anytime soon you need to get this one. And if you pick it up son, both Torn and Twisted are on sale for $1.99 each. So go pick them up today and get ready for the release of the third and final book Tainted!
