TORN (Connections _2) - Cover Reveal on July 18th at 8PM EST


Rock star River Wilde brought Dahlia London back from the brink of hopelessness with his unwavering love and devotion. But their entangled history is about to test the strength of their relationship…

Dahlia was certain she had found true love and met her “Once in a Lifetime’ when she reconnected with River. But Dahlia’s world comes crashing down when someone from her past resurfaces, and all of River’s carefully hidden secrets are exposed.

River wants to show Dahlia that life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass—it’s about dancing in the rain. But how many times can one broken heart be mended?  Will River and Dahlia be able to stay together or will they be torn apart?



His body tenses and I know this still isn’t the time to discuss Ben, but it is the right time to tell him how I feel. I run my fingertips along his cheek, silently apologizing for slapping him before saying it. “I really am so sorry.” I hope he knows I mean it for more than just the slap. Leaning into him, I take his other hand and bring both to my mouth as I tell him what I’ve wanted him to know since I drove away this morning. “River, I love you, Ben being alive doesn’t change that. You know that—right?”

Exhaling, he grabs my face and looks directly into my eyes. Despite his drunken state, his eyes seem more focused and his words are clear. “I want to believe your love is only for me. That your lips are mine. That your kisses are meant for me. That your body belongs to me.” His arms move to my waist and tighten around me and he presses his hard body against mine. “But when you leave me to see him, it’s hard to know for sure.”






***Do not read this review if you have not read Connected, it may contain spoilers for book 1***

Torn is a book I had been DYING to get my greedy little hands on ever since finishing Connected.  The MAJOR cliffhanger in Connected left me with a MAJOR hangover.  I couldn’t believe that BEN WAS ALIVE!!  Let me tell you that Torn did not disappoint at all.  Such a fantastic book left me feeling all warm and gooey inside.  The re-emergence of Ben really throws Dahlia and River into a tailspin.  I mean how would you react if your first love, who you thought was dead, came back to you?  Or what if the love of your life’s ex comes back from the dead, what do you do? Torn shows what a strong person Dahlia has really become and what a swoonworthy man River really is. This is not to say that they handle everything well, but to see the story play out was amazing.  This is one of those difficult books to review.  There are quite a few twists and turns that really threw me for a loop.  I don’t want to ruin anything for you.  You need to ride this rollercoaster yourself.  I did shed quite a few tears in this book, some happy some sad, but well worth it.  This is one of my favorite series and I can’t wait for more!!!

About the Author

I live in Florida with my husband and four kids. I’ve always had a love for reading books and writing. Being an English major in college, I wanted to teach at the college level but that was not to be. I went on to receive an MBA and became a project manager until quitting to raise my family. I currently work part-time with my husband and full-time embracing one of my biggest passions—writing.

I wear a lot of hats! Writer, book-lover, wife, soccer-mom, taxi driver, and the all around go-to person of the family. However, I always find time to read. One of my favorite family outings use to be taking my kids to the bookstore or the library. Today, my oldest child is in college and my twins are juniors so they no longer go with me on these outings. And although I don’t need to go to the actual store anymore because I have the greatest device ever invented—a Kindle, I still do. There’s nothing like a paperback. So now my four year old and I make dates out of going to the bookstore–it’s time I love and cherish.

I like to believe in soulmates, kindred spirits, true friends, and Happily-Ever-Afters. I love to drink champagne, listen to music, and hopes to always stay young at heart. <3
