You know how you're always drawn to things you shouldn't be? Torn by Christina Brunkhorst takes that theme and thrusts it (literally) into the Limelight by taking the ultimate "What If?" scenario and dropping it smackdab among the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. ...okay, so technically not Hollywood, but Hollywood via the set of its biggest as-yet-to-be-released blockbuster movie being filmed in Montana.

The What If? What if you found your soul mate in the most unexpected of places... and they were already married?

That's exactly what happens when hottie hollywood legend Tyler Benson meets Chelsea Morgan on the set. After a slight tantrum by the film's leading lady leaves the role vacant, Chelsea finds herself moved up the ranks from extra (funny commentary on Montana and its populace in that scene) to star. But Tyler and Chelsea soon find that the faux role of "husband and wife" feels all too real. That wouldn't be a problem if they weren't already married to *other* people.

Things are even further complicated by the realization that Chelsea's life with said husband and their children is actually... nice. It's a nice home. A happy home. But for Chelsea there's something missing. You can feel the shadow of it hanging over the story but not quite put your finger on it. It really is a masterful twist when the truth is revealed, but I won't give it away as I think it's one of the story's laugh out loud OMG! that's geniusly evil! moments every reader must experience for themselves.

Tyler, however, isn't so lucky. He's married to quite the Hollywood shrew, pretty much home-less, childless, and totally miserable. The more time he spends with Chelsea - and by extension her family - the more he sees what his life is missing...

What can I say, it is what it is and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I consider Torn tabloid fanfiction, a what if about a well known and successful married movie star falling in love with his married co-star. Sound like anybody you know? He is in the tabloid marriage of the century but he is also unhappy and desperately want kids that his showbiz wife want give him. Now do you know him? His co-star got the part on a fluke, she is happily married to her husband of 10yrs, but as the story unfolds there are hidden issues that will be brought to the light that can no longer be ignored as their marriage unravels. One is the desire to have more children, she wants more he doesn't. How do we get to a HEA, is it possible?

If you hate cheating or marriage infidelity you will not like this book. Ty and Chelsea are married to other people when they get together. Chelsea had a good marriage to a good man, they have 2 little girls that they both love, how can she risk it all for what many would call a pipe dream. And Ty although he is at the end of his marriage how could he let his guard down to get involved with a married woman. At times their romance was sweet but it was also extremely selfish. Chelsea's husband Jake had his faults, how he dealt with being the cuckold husband was hilarious at times and also bittersweet. When Chelsea was trying to explain to Jake why Ty is her soul mate he was thinking...."He was going to run screaming like a woman from the ambulance, and probably choke a biotch on his way out." The author has a talent for making the reader feel two opposing emotions at the same time. Your heart is breaking because a marriage is ending but on the flip side it had its funny moments. The supporting cast of characters helped move this story along and gave it depth. The old adage..

Torn by Christina Brunkhorst is a wonderful romance with an interracial vibe. Ms. Brunkhorst provides the reader with a love story so real, you feel as though you are a part of the drama. The key setting is in Montana, Big Sky country in all of its majesty. I related to the small town feel after spending two summers in Missoula, Montana. Her main character, Chelesa also spent a week in Montana and hence the beginning her a romance with her husband. They make a loving and beautiful family. I loved all of the characters. Ms. Brunkhorst invents them as if she were a supreme being molding and shaping them. Her rich vocabulary and smooth writing style draws in a reader who enjoys utilizing their critical and logical thinking skills. Torn touches all five senses. The love scene may leave you breathless and it did me. Jake, Chelsea's kind-hearted husband is almost a perfect human being. Tyler Benson is awesome in mind, body and soul. Ms. Brunkhorst's secondary characters are as important as the main characters because of their reactions to the events as the story unfolds. These incidents captivate and shake up situations, making the rising action so meaningful. I love the manner in which Ms. Burkhorst inserts drama on top of drama but with flair and lacking confusion and many surprises that touch everyone in Torn in a powerful way. Torn's great ending placed a smile on my face and an indelible mark on my heart. Ms. Burkhorst is a writer to watch and I am a new fan. In my honest opinion, Torn is a terrific book and worth the seven years it took Ms. Burkhorst to concoct such an entertaining, engrossing tale.

Ms. Brunkhorst, thanks for making this week-end a peaceful, relaxing one with this book.
