Can two afflicted strangers from the dark side, help each other back to the light?
Willow Steele is a survivor - barely. Her mother was murdered in front of her. Eight years old. Nowhere and nobody to call home. Willow did what she had to in order to survive life. Alcohol. Drugs. Rehab. Faced with a straightjacket, a bare cell at Ferndale and the prospect of going cold turkey from the vices that have been keeping her alive, Willow is furious. She wants her drugs. She wants her freedom. She wants out of this place.
Hunter Edwards is an addict. Just one taste, to impress a girl, and heroin ended up taking every bit of self-control he'd ever owned. Six months later he is hooked and spiralling out of control. Break and enters, car accidents, trouble with the law. His mother and the cops sign him into Ferndale as a last resort before shipping him off to the army.
That's where he sees her. Willow. The girl in the cell. The dark haired, blue eyed angel that steals his heart.
Can Willow & Hunter help each other through the hardest fight of their lives? Or will they both fall harder than ever before?
This is a dark romance. It is not for the faint hearted. You've been warned...
I am a fan of dark romances, sometimes I question my own sanity for how much I truly love reading the dark, painful, books that rip your insides out and put them back together again. Torment was dark, it was edgy and it was one that this book whore was sucked into very quickly. Reading about addictions is hard for me I must admit, I have lost people who I loved battle their demons with addiction and lost, I also have people in my life now that are currently battling the demons that an addiction brings, so even though I may at times find this content hard to read I still read it.
Torment is full of twists and turns that will have you saying what the fuck more than once. Willow and Hunter are both damaged souls that have each gone through their own personal hells in life. My emotions were all over the place, my stomach hurts just thinking about how I felt while reading this, it felt like I was kicked more than once but I just had to continue reading.
Torment is one that I recommend for anyone looking for a new dark romance to check out. Just be prepared that this isn’t always an easy book to read, but if you like this type of romance it will be one I think you will enjoy.
