Luke is amazingly patient with her and I love that about him. And OMG! The way he is with Nora (Alyssa’s daughter from her failed marriage). He’s tough and strong when he needs to be and a soft, tender and safe place for both Alyssa and Nora two fall.
These two are definitely TORN. Alyssa is torn between escaping an old life and the “what could be” with Luke, but I totally understand her need to make the decisions that she does. Certainly can’t fault her for wanting to escaper her toxic past and build a new life without all the reminders of it.
As for Luke, he’s torn between a past he may not want to escape and the possibility of finding a different happiness with Alyssa and Nora and all the possibilities this entails.
Either way this story will definitely tug at your heart strings.
My biggest issue with this book was the main conflict between the H and h. I get why the heroine made the decision she did but I felt like she kept dragging the hero along. Luke was having a hard enough time distancing himself from her after finding out her plans. He did not need her back and forth mind games. I also don’t like that he ultimately made all the sacrifices and changes. It just was not at all realistic in how quickly he was able to make those huge changes.
While we leaned a lot about Alissa’s history, I feel like Luke got left out. We did not get to understand his family dynamics and how his close group of friends/coworkers pulled him through such a tragic loss. His story just felt incomplete.
<spoiler>Not sure what the whole emphasis on taking the pill was. When the heroine threw up shortly after, I assumed it would result in something but....nope. </spoiler>
Heat lvl🔥🔥.5 <spoiler> Descriptive, vanilla. Fairly steamy</spoiler>
Alissa gave everything of herself to her husband and child Nora, she gave her heart, her soul, her time, her everything but then her husband broke her in everyway and she was forever changed. He made her feel worthless and used as well as to never want to trust another again with her heart. I felt so much sadness while going on this journey with Alissa and when Luke is thrown into her life I felt hope again. With Luke I feel his determination to live his best life even though it has proven to be extremely difficult at times. He is trying however!! I love the chemistry between the two and they compliment each other perfectly but can their past be put behind them and will they go forward together? this was what I wanted through the whole story.
I whole heartedly recommend this book!!! It will engrain itself into your memory forever and ever!!!!
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Alissa had totally sworn of men… especially abusive men like her ex-husband WELL that was until a handsome tattooed sexy stranger arrived in the form of Luke. An accidental meeting that would change Alissa's life
The lovely Alissa has sacrificed all of her happy ever after and her all for her abusive and horrid husband David and of course her little girl Nora. Alissa married David for all the wrong reasons as she thought it would be their happy ever after but no David had other ideas. David was climbing quickly up corporate ladders, Alissa was just a trophy wife all he wanted for her was to depend on everything. Alissa was made to be a stay at home trophy wife and a mother. That was all well and good until David broke her heart and cheated on her with her ex-best friend. David broke Alissa in all the ways you wouldn't believe was possible.
Luke has had to try re-build his life since a very tragic and heartbreaking accident changed his out-look on life. existence, Luke has been battling all of his demons on a daily basis. However after all the heartbreak he's suffered, Luke is determined to to live his life to the fullest.
Ir is a true but very heartbreaking painful promise he can’t break. Rather won't break.
No matter how bad the pain and days get.
However all this is put to the back of both Alissa and Luke's mind. That's when fate throws both of them together. However they both know that it’s the very last thing on either of their minds are looking for.
Can Alissa learn to love and trust Luke to mend her broken heart and become the man she can rely on mentally and physically. Not one who abuses her and makes her feel worthless.
Can Luke bring back Alissa from the brink of deep anxiety, depression and feeling worthless. Can her make "Lissa" see not all men are bad.
A very good book and love how it brings everyday mental illnesses into the books. I suffer from anxiety and depression so this is close to me.
A well written book, would recommend to anyone looking for a new author or to anyone who can relate to this book.
5* read well done Harper
Torn is filled with such heart felt emotion. I had such a hard time putting this book down. It's fantastic.
