Review and Giveaway: Torn by Eleanor Green

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 in 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.

Now Katie is torn between two lives—facing her painful past with Branson, or moving on with Aidan and keeping the secrets safely buried forever.

4 Fantastic Stars
Review by Allison East
Torn was a book that totally sucked me in from the get go.

It started off as a pretty normal book situation, where the hero and heroine fall in love with each other, pretty quickly. Then it took a turn- and not in a good way.
Katie was a typical girl- sweet and fun. She is described as the quintessential girl next door. She has been raised by her Gram, since her parents' death.  

Branson was a great hero, and I fell in love with him, so it’s no wonder Katie felt the same way. They are finding out they have some of the same interests and slowly start a great relationship, but not all is as it seems.
In the blurb- it states when all is revealed, Katie leaves. And that leaves Branson with many questions. The how's and why's of their relationship. He makes it perfectly clear, though, he will always fight for her- because she is worth it.

He knew she was right for him; he just needed to convince her.

Katie's memories have been stolen from her real life but all of a sudden things start reappearing and we learn of Katie's horrendous childhood. Ugh, and it is awful. I never wanted to hug someone through a book so much in my whole life.  And after all comes to light, there is no going back.

After the big reveal Katie and Gram take a little breather, and escape. Which she needed. I was just so sad that she had to leave Branson to do it.

On this trip she meets Aidan. Almost instantly, I didn't like him. And it's all Branson’s fault, but- he isn’t a terrible guy. He is a surgeon, and being in the healthcare field, Katie's nursing job connects them. He falls for Katie, without knowing a thing about her. But there is no way Branson can leave well enough alone and seeks her out. What happens when Katie's past and present collide?

I adored this book, and can’t wait for more from this new author, Eleanor Green.
