RELEASE BOOST & REVIEW: Torn by Carian Cole

Title: Torn
Series: Devils Wolves MC #1
Author: Carian Cole
Genre: MC Romance
 Release Date: August 29, 2016


He’s loved me since the day I was born.
He’s taken care of me.
He’s awakened me.

Tor. My father’s best friend.
Fifteen years older than me, he’s always been my protector. The one I should never, ever want.
But I was born to be his.

She’s always loved me.
She’s shattered me.
She’s healed me.
Kenzi. My best friend’s daughter.
I held her the day she was born, and I never let go.
She’s forbidden to me. But she’s the only one that really gets me.
We’re slowly being torn apart by everything we love.
Everything we want.
Everything we desire.

And now I want the one thing I can’t have... I want her.


Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian I Dig Good Books.

5/5 (Exceptional)

*I received a copy of this book from Give Me Books in exchange for a fair and honest review*

This book; so many feels, so many emotions, so many “ahh or sigh” moments. My heart was all over the place, it could not decide which emotion it should feel.  I loved absolutely every moment of the story, from page one to the last page.   It’s a story of love that blossoms over time and builds into the type of love we have for our spouse or significant other, a type of love that survives all and never ends. It’s the type of love you read about in fairy tales. It’s not easy, it’s not perfect, it falters, and it endures.

I loved this story. It was perfection with faults right in front of my eyes. It was beautiful in its own way. The writing was top notch. The story was written just absolutely perfectly. This story could have easily been awkward. It could have been weird and wrong. I think the author made it anything but those things.  I think she took great care in writing their story and giving great detail where it was needed and description that described scenes that really made the story fall together.

Toren is not a harsh bad boy. He is gentle, loving, and is anything but simple. If you’ve read her other works, the guys are kind of brash and rough and Toren, to me, is anything but. His character is the type of character that you literally swoon over. He has a tough boy exterior but has a heart that never ends. The author did such a great job writing his character that I feel truly fit him. He felt true and real and felt relatable.

Let’s talk about the cover and the cover models. After reading the story, reading the descriptions of the characters throughout the story as well as the details of their characters, the way they love one another. This cover was so beautifully done and the author put so much care into picking the right one. As a reader, I appreciate that she took so much care into the detail of her cover to the detail of each word, each paragraph, and each chapter.

I feel incomplete after finishing Toren’s story. Some part of me was left behind when I finished that story – it took a part of my heart with it. This story is just absolutely perfection.

Kenzi one day old
Toren fifteen years old

“We want you to be her Godfather,” Asher says as he gently lays his newborn baby into my arms. I have to tear my gaze away from her spellbinding eyes to look up at him from the chair I’m cradling the baby in.

“Me?” I repeat, glancing over at Ember in the hospital bed, who beams back at me with a tired, yet genuine smile.

“Yes, you,” they both say at the same time. “If it wasn’t for you, we probably never would have met,” Ember adds, grabbing Asher’s hand. “And we wouldn’t have this beautiful little baby. We know you’ll always protect her.”

“That’s right, man. You’re Uncle Tor now.”

I’m an uncle. And my two best friends are parents. And we’re all fuckin’ under sixteen.

But Kenzi Allyster Valentine would change us all forever. She needed us.

“Wow. I’m honored, guys. No doubt, I’ll always be here for her.”

I kick back the pang that hits my stomach. I didn’t get the girl…but I got something better that I never expected. A gift in the form of a little tiny hand wrapped tightly around my finger, huge eyes like gems staring up into mine like I was the most amazing person in the friggen’ world, and the first glimpse of what I could already tell was going to be a heart-stopping smile.

At that moment, a connection was born.

That was it.
She owned me.
My niece.
My god-daughter.
The love of my life.

Author Bio

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
