Now he's out on parole and he has only one objective. To break her in a way that she broke him. He wants her screams, her tears, and he wants to see her shatter into millions of pieces.
Honestly, this is a difficult book for me to review. A part of me disliked it while another part of me was sucked into everything that was happening. I'm not a stranger to darker reads and I rather enjoy stepping outside of my comfort zone and getting truly engrossed in a good work of fiction.
The emotions that this kind of story tends to draw out of me are usually quite strong. They range from anger, disgust, acceptance, and it really forces me to try and understand just what made a character the way that they are.
Now there is a warning that Torrent features sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. I'm pretty sure we all know to expect something like that from a darker read. However, I know that some people have triggers and I want to let you know that there is rape between step-siblings in this book. If that hits home for you and will trigger a horrific memory, then you may want to pass on this one.
I did find it really hard to feel for Alex. I understand, to an extent, why she did what she did. But honestly, her actions once she was kidnapped baffled me. There wasn't enough of their past in this first book to make me form a connection. To make me understand how she could care for Rafe as he was hurting her. Torturing her. Violating her.Read more ›
First of all, the whole set up was too ridiculous to believe. Alex was being raped by her step brother, forced to have an abortion, forced to claim Rafe, the love of her life had raced her and forced to remain quiet while he gets convicted and spends 8 years in prison. All the while she continues to be the unwilling submissive to her step brother. Rafe gets out, kidnaps Alex and then he begins to rape her all while trying to find out why she accused him.
Alex and Rafe were not well fleshed out. Too many character contradictions. He loves her but hates her...well okay that could be done but the author just didn't pull it off. The poor little rich girl syndrome just didn't work. The dialogue didn't work, the sex scenes didn't work.
I stopped reading when towards the end, Rafe and the step brother Zach duke it out and some preposterously stupid moves are made. I cannot tolerate stupid characters doing stupid things.
Don't waste your time or money. This was very poorly written story of a very poorly thought out plot.
I may be one of the few out there who didn't love this story, but I'll try my best to explain the reasons why it didn't work for me .
I don't mind dark themes nor violent situations. I don't mind troubled characters nor angsty reads. Hell I've read my share of stories that make this one a walk in the park.
Granted, the author made a magnificent attempt in bringing the darker and hardcore elements to the page, she just didn't pair it with anything more substantial than sex.
What this story lacked that those didn't was character development, a connection between the characters that went beyond the physical and a plot that was detailed and well executed.
Violent sexual encounters for the sole purpose of portraying the darker sides of the main characters does not a dark romance make. Having a convenient 'lay' to get your rocks off doesn't lead to strengthening a connection, not even one that was made previously.
And that is where the story failed me.
The blurb makes a reference to the female lead being obsessed with Rafe since she was thirteen and according to Rafe's rambling thoughts he was as obsessed with her as she was. So if that was true, where's that initial connection? What made them so obsessed with each other? I still don't know.
Then there's the issue of him wanting to know why she did it. According to the blurb, she understands why he's doing the things he's doing, so why was she so distraught to find herself in the situation in the first place? Didn't she want him--warts and all? And if all he wanted was for her to tell him the reason why she sent him to prison why does she hold back?Read more ›
