I was fifteen when I sent the love of my life to prison for a crime he didn't commit. Back then Rafe was my brother's best friend and off-limits, but that didn't stop me from drooling over him. I've never forgotten the guy whose green eyes made me weak in the knees. Rafe hasn't forgotten me either. Eight years later, I find him on my doorstep with revenge on the mind.
The twisted part of this story? I still want him, even though he's taken me to a private island with no chance for escape. He says I've got eight years of misery to atone for, and every move he makes is designed to shame and punish.
But I'm wired for his methods, and instead of delivering retribution, his brutal touch lights us both on fire.
NOTE TO READERS: Torrent is a dark romance with kidnapping and other disturbing themes. Intended for mature readers. Not for the faint of heart. You've been warned. Part 1 in the Condemned series.
I read ALOT and have never felt the compulsion to write a review. This book touched me in a way that will stay with me a long time. This book illustrates clearly that life throws us the hardest struggles to endure, breaks us down so completely that we become something different, hopefully better. It shows the fine lines between love/hate, justice/vengeance, pleasure/pain, but to me it shows the ultimate healing power of love.
Not my cup of tea
I read the whole book in the hopes that it would improve. It didn't. If you're into very bad things like rape, torture, and abduction you might like this book. If you don't want to read about that, don't get it. The entire book is about rape and abuse.
I generally rate books I merely like "4 *"... So this is saying something. If you have a grade school grammatical education, or a moral compass, this is probably not for you. :(
