In order to help out the Prez and his Old Lady, Storm agrees to go to a parent / teacher conference. When he lays eyes on the student teacher, he knows he would have paid more attention in school has she been in the classroom. She’s innocent, but oh so sexy, and Storm decides she’s going to be his.
Becca is intrigued by Storm, but has led a very sheltered life since her parents were murdered in from of her during a home invasion. When her roommate talks her into attending her first college party, she finds herself in trouble. It’s sheer luck that Storm sees what is going down and rescues her.
The attraction between this couple is instantaneous and Storm is all Alpha. Becca’s not ready to be completely controlled, however. There’s also a connection that they don’t realize between them however, and when that information comes to light, it may pull them apart forever. When both of their pasts come back to haunt them, it will be up to Storm to save the woman he’s fallen for and finally claim her as his before it’s too late.
This was my first book in the series. It can easily be read as a standalone. I found the past connection between these characters to be intriguing and a great plot twist. I wish the insta-love wasn’t quite so insta and that more time had been spent building up this relationship or even creating more depth to these characters. Things felt a bit rushed to me and I would have liked more time with the plot and the characters.
Torn is very fast paced with periods of angst, suspense and lots of heat! If you enjoy MC Romance with a man that’s all alpha and a heroine that needs saving you’ll find this to be a quick and enjoyable read. 3.5 stars.
That’s what it’s all about here.
I’d do anything for one of my brothers,
Even go with his old lady to a parent-teacher conference.
But when I see the sweet little number who’s the teacher,
Suddenly, school’s right up my alley.
She’s innocent, naive, and sexy as Hell.
Damn, I just want in her pants,
And to maybe teach her a thing or two.
And I’m not backing down,
I’ll get to her.
But if she ever finds out the truth about our connection,
It’ll sever the ties and ruin it all.
I’m just going to keep my mouth shut–
And all over her.
