Chloe hasn't had the best life. With a mother who is gone more often than not, she has had to raise herself. After graduating high school, she leaves to start a new life away at West Virginia University with her best friends Amber and Logan, determined to leave her demons in the past.

On her first day, she meets a stranger who takes her breath away at first sight. Until she met Drake, no one had ever sparked her interest. Now this tattooed and pierced bad boy is all she can think about, no matter how hard she fights it.

Long hidden feelings are revealed and friendships tested to the brink.  ~ Publisher's Description

As much as I enjoyed the book, I kept thinking about how similar it is to Beautiful Disaster.  This isn't in and of itself a bad thing, it just isn't a unique storyline.  The girl with the bad upbringing, Chloe, falls for Drake with the bad boy look and attitude.  Add in a love triangle between Chloe, Logan, and Drake and watch the tensions rise. 

Read Chapter 1 HERE!

At only 272 pages, I read the book in two nights.  K.A. Robinson wrote the characters and plot well enough that I did not want to put the book down.  Although I basically figured out what was going to happen next, I did encounter a few twists I did not expect!

My rating: B
3.0 out of 5 stars

I received a complimentary e-book of Torn from Atria Books, Simon and Schuster, and NetGalley for my honest review.
