Torn By Eleanor Green, Review and Giveaway
By Eleanor Green
This was a awesome debut for Eleanor Green. I was hooked from the first page and read it in a day. I really just couldn't put it down. It was engaging, lovely, romantic, heart wrenching, disturbing. frustrating and sweet
When Katie Harrington becomes engaged to Branson Stone she believes her life is right on track for all her dreams to come true.
However, flashes of a life she never lived haunt her—leading her to discover a past that has been purposely erased from her memory in order to protect her from horrible truths.
The look on her fiancé’s face as she retells everything she remembers will forever be etched in her mind. Instead of catching and comforting her, he lets her go.
Retreating to the family’s cottage on the Outer Banks for the summer, Katie’s heart begins to heal. She succumbs to the allure of a dangerously handsome local, Aidan Romero. But as soon as Katie begins to let go and move on with Aidan . . . Branson finds her.
This is what I was thinking while reading this book
Omg wtf nooooo
And in that order!!!
This book took me though a wide range of emotions!! While this starts out wonderfully and you think you are getting just a lovely story about a new couple meeting and falling in love, then bang!! Shit gets real and you are taken on a dark and twisted path. What happens when the one you love the most isn't there when you need him the most???
This was great, I loved Katie and Branson. I thought they were perfect for each other and loved seeing their relationship grow, it felt true and real and believable a quality that is sometime lacking in other books I have read.
Now how do I say what I'm feeling with out giving away any spoilers?? OK here goes I'm just going to jot down some random thoughts that will most likely mean nothing to you till you read the book.
*Gram is a bitch!! Hated her. thought she was a manipulating cow.
*Branson was awesome and I felt bad for him..I mean he wasn’t even allowed to react??? People deal and process stuff differently and that was his way, I think everyone was way to harsh on him.
*While I understand the need to get away and overall it wasn’t a bad idea to sort your head out but not the way Katie did it, also she never really seemed to sort out anything. She didn’t IMO deal with anything that happened to her in her early life and that felt unresolved.
*I hated Aidan, sleazy ass wipe, never liked him and HATED what she did with him!!!! I can not express that enough!
This was beautifully written and I fell in love withEleanor Greens writing style and I will read this author again and again. She has a rare talent for writing believable and engaging characters and dialog, I cant wait to see whats next for her.
