However danger still lurks in the shadows threatening those that are dear to Viper. Can Viper convince Barb to give him another chance? Can Barb trust Viper enough to open herself up and allow the love she has for him to consume her? In the end, will Viper and Barb survive the danger that threatens them so they can finally have their happily ever after?
A.F. Crowell your amazing! Gutted is the perfect conclusion to the Torn series.
Barbara Reagan Kelly was just a nurse, lives a simple life, she enjoyed sex and getting together with friends, then she meets a guy in a dive bar and her life changes forever, a little while later the bottom falls out of her world as he gets shot and killed. That man was Cole Storm Ellett who went by many other names, Viper being his road name and Captain being a term of endearment Babs calls him. But I suspect he is known by several other names as he works Undercover for the department of Homeland security, something Babs didn’t known when he died. Babs fell hard, and they had a passionate relationship, the only thing was Babs never told him she loves her, and she has wished for a do over ever since.
Only problem is he turns up alive, just as she is getting over him. Will she ever get over the heart break, and will the secrets they keep be too much, will they keep them apart? Or will they finally be honest with one another and admit the secrets they kept from each other. One thing is for certain that he won’t ever let her go, he was forced to leave her at one time by circumstances beyond his control, but no more, no matter what, he won’t leave her again.
5 amazing stars
Oh. My. Goodness! I can’t I even I missed the fourth instalment of the Torn series, because Gutted reminded me just why I fell in love the first three books. A.F. Crowell has the ability to take a story and make me want more and that’s exactly what happened with Barb and Viper’s story. The man who had whole heartedly stolen Barb’s heart so many years ago is back from what she believes is the dead to claim what is his. Viper had to disappear under strict orders from his superiors and he has much to make up for to the woman he hurt.
4 breath taking dreams
The way these two were described was so vivid that I saw the entire story unfold as though I was there. The story was beautiful, saddening (at times) and so very decadent. Goodness, how many times I cheered as Barb and Viper got together are numerous and I enjoyed seeing them heal one another and become stronger as a pair than they ever were individually. Is this the end of the Torn series? It could be, or maybe A.F. Crowell will surprise her readers with more, but one thing is certain: should it be the end, Gutted was the perfect ending to what is an amazing series worth sinking your teeth into and i can’t wait to see what else she’ll come up with.

Love, love AF Crowell and this series since the first book. I loved Barb and Viper when they were introduced as Jax and Leila's best friends and now getting their own book was something I have been excited about for awhile.
Barb is broken and has been every since Viper died in a shootout 2 years ago. Now he is back from the dead and wants Barb and his life back. What he didn't count on was his fiery redhead's anger and hurt that he didn't trust her. Now the guys who thought had killed him also know he is back and are after him and Barb. Can he convince her to leave with him in order to save her life and to help bring down the cartel who wants him dead?
I have read Ms Crowell's books since her first novel and her writing keeps getting better and better after every book. Gutted is fast paced, with great dialog that's both witty and truthful. The pain both Barb and Viper have gone through is something you feel at every turn. Their is plenty of action and boy when Viper and Barb finally come together the heat comes right through the page. We do get to see Jax and Leila again which was great along with other characters from the first 4 books, but this is completely Barb and Viper`s story through and through.
