Torn by Carian Cole


** Please note: There is no underage sex in this book. This is a romance. **

He’s loved me since the day I was born. 
He’s taken care of me. 
He’s awakened me. 

Tor. My father’s best friend. 
Fifteen years older than me, he’s always been my protector. 
The one I should never, ever want. 
But I was born to be his. 

She’s always loved me. 
She’s shattered me. 
She’s healed me.

Kenzi. My best friend’s daughter. 
I held her the day she was born, and I never let go. 
She’s forbidden to me. But she’s the only one that really gets me. 
We’re slowly being torn apart by everything we love. 
Everything we want. 
Everything we desire. 

And now I want the one thing I can’t have... I want her.

4 Stars

All her life, Tor has played a part.
Uncle, babysitter, booboo soother, chasing away monsters, 
mentor, confidant, friend, god father.
Now he is stepping into a new role with Kenzi

He's fought it for years, but his heart knows.  
She makes him happy, she makes him whole.
Soul Mates.
Can it work?  
She is so young, he is older.
Much older.
Why would she want an old guy like him?
He's closed off.  At least that's what the others told him.
Maybe they didn't know him.
Maybe he closed himself off from them.
But not Kenzi.

Kenzi wants Tor.
With ever fiber of her being.
Wants, NO, needs him.
They have danced around their feelings long enough.
It's time.
She's 18. 
It's TIME!
Will Tor bend for her.
Will he love her like she wants?
Or will she always be the child to him?

The first 60% of this book, is Tor and Kenzi dancing
around their feelings. I get it.  She's not 18 yet.
All bets are off when she turns 18.
After 60% it's an uphill battle between Kenzi and Tor.
Wondering if they can make any sense out of things.
How things from their past will affect their future.
Will they get a Happily Ever After?

I'm interested in the reclusive brother who lives in the woods.
He intrigues me.  Out of all the other brothers, he is the one
I want to know more about.
You get a little snip of him in this book, but it's not enough.
I hope Ms. Cole writes a book just for him.
And soon!

Innocent Eyes by Hard De Lune

Innocent Eyes by Charlotte E Hart and Rachel De Lune Release Date: 19th February Genre: Dark. Erotic Romance   #InnocentEyesTour Add to your Goodreads TBR Synopsis: "If he's gross, I'm bailing."  That's what I said to my supposed best friend when she asked me to take her place. A blind date, she said. What harm could it do?  He was charming. Beautiful. God's finest creation. He wined me and dined me. Made me do things I'd never before dreamt of in the bedroom. It was perfect. Dangerous. Arousing.  But Jenny didn’t tell me the full story. She didn’t tell me about the debt she owed. And now Quinn Cane wants his money's worth, and he’s going to make me pay whatever way he can.  “A debt needs to be paid.” The woman who came to meet me didn’t owe me money. I could tell by her innocent eyes.  Still, the debt will be paid either way. She was something to play with and use as I saw fit, but something about Emily Brooks made me want to keep her. So she became my dirt…

Well Played by JS Scott and Ruth Cardello


Graham is my brother's best friend. He’s always been my protector and my confident because he accepts me the way I am—and not many do. I can’t imagine not having him in my life.
Our weekend together was supposed to be a celebration. I graduated from college, Graham got engaged and signed with a pro football team, and my brother landed his dream job. It should have been the best time of our lives.

Except that the weekend started with me walking in on Graham's fiancée going down on my brother.

I complicated the situation by having sex with Graham after that, but I wanted to comfort him and, damn, when I saw desire in his eyes—for me—I couldn’t say no. I’ve wanted him for so long.

Now he doesn’t want to see me. He says he has a darker side he needs to protect me from.

Where do we go from here? Do I try to pretend to be his friend again or push him to open up to me and possibly lose him forever?


Sleeping with one of my best friends was not exactly a brilliant idea. It made…
