She sent an innocent man to prison. Now, eight years later, he’s returning the favor…
I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The twisted part of this story is that I still want him, even now.
Now that he’s holding me captive on an island.
Rafe has his reasons for doing what he’s doing, and if I’m honest, I can’t blame him. I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn’t commit.
But now he’s free and the tables have turned…now he’s the one driven by obsession.
TORRENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part one of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read.
“I’m coming for you”
I had seen the cover of this book some time ago and I knew this was one I needed to read….yes I am easily persuaded by a hot cover, don’t judge. But aside from the hot cover, “Torrent” truly is a great start of this series. It’s short, fast paced but oh so intense. I love the concept and the way it’s build up, it doesn’t weaken but only gets stronger throughout the book. And the set of messed characters it has is so intriguing, I’m not only talking about the main characters either. Not to mention the sexiness that goes through the roof.
The main characters are Rafe and Alex. Poor, sexy Rafe. He’s filled with anger, anger he has every right to. Eight years have been stolen from him, he has lost opportunities and his credibility has been washed down the drain. Even when he has done his time in jail, once outside he has to face the disgust on people’s faces.
I do have to warn you about the explicit nature of this book. For those who can’t handle or enjoy that, this is not your read. But if you’re like me and you like your reads hot, cruel and a little bit insane then look no further!
