REVIEW: TORN BY NATASHA KNIGHT

Taking her is my right.
Breaking her, my duty.

I was always going to choose Helena. I knew it the instant I saw her.

She’s different than the others. There’s a darkness about her. Something wild inside her. And it calls to the beast inside me.

But she isn’t what I expect. With every word and every touch, she pushes me, burrows deep under my skin, challenging the rules, upending history.

And all the while, I see how my brother watches her. He wants her, and as the rules stand, she’ll become his in one year’s time.

Except that I have no intention of giving her up.

Note: Torn is book two of the Dark Legacy Duet.


★★★★☆


This story took a left turn and I'm not sure how I feel about it. After riding the high from the first book, I thought the idea of me loving this conclusion was all but guaranteed, however, my love was proven elusive.

Don't get me wrong, as you can see by my high rating, there was plenty to like about this part of the story. The relationship between Sebastian and Helena was just as toxic and exciting as ever. She still asked too many questions and acted too big for her britches and Sebastian still let her get away with it for the most part. I guess that's what love will make you do.

I can't get her out of my head. Out from under my skin. I an't get enough of touching her, can't get close enough to her, not even when I'm buried deep inside her.

Their future happiness suffered a glitch - Sebastian's brother, Gregory, wanted his turn with the Willow girl. Sebastian didn't want to give her up at the end of his year. He didn't want to watch her with his brother. His solution: share her. And while these scenes were incredibly hot, I lost my connection with the characters. Sebastian was hurting everyone with his actions and the one person I felt terrible for was Gregory. This poor little man just wanted something. He was full of turmoil and ache, and really who could blame him considering his upbringing, and his brother was teasing him with what he couldn't have. Damn him!

I'm not sure what I was expecting with this ending. I wanted the characters to be redeemed and I wanted them to be whole in their love for one another, but I also would have liked a bit more torment. I wanted Helena to suffer more because I don't believe she suffered enough. Her mouth got on my nerves and I don't know how it didn't get on theirs. Her behavior was atrocious and I found nothing attractive about her, but I loved the ways the Scafoni brothers played with her. I guess I wanted more of that.
