Sometimes what you find isn’t what you were searching for
Beau Petty has been searching his whole life. Searching for a place that fills all the empty spaces in him. Searching for a way to tame the restlessness. Searching for answers to the secret he’s never stopped trying to solve. What he wasn’t searching for was a woman to claim all of him, but when Cora Silvera walks back into his life, he’s ready to search out all the ways he can make her his.
Cora has spent her life as the family nurturer, taking care of others. But now she’s ready to pass that job on to someone else. It’s time to make some changes and live for herself. It’s in that moment that her former teenage crush reappears and the draw and the heat of their instant connection is like nothing either of them has experienced. He craves being around her. She accepts him, dark corners and all.
Beau thinks Cora’s had enough drama in her life. He wants to protect her from the secrets of his past, even if it means holding back the last pieces of himself. But Cora is no pushover and she means to claim all those pieces.
Torn is the 3rd installment in the Whiskey Sharp Series. Along the way we have met several characters/couples and this time around we are going to be following Cora which I just adored and Beau with was just a great guy.
Cora is the best friend to our previous couples, Rachel and Maybe and their loves. Cora has been the who has been there for the girls just about everything they’ve been through over the past couple of years. She puts her own needs and issues aside for them and everyone else. I loved this girl so much, she is so caring and selfless. I so wanted her find some happiness. Little did she know that a long lost love would come walking back into her life. Beau is a restless soul, he’s hot and kind. Now, that’s a great combination! He also wasn’t prepared to come face to face with the girls he’s pined over all these years.
The re-connection of these two was sweet and steamy too. Bonus! There was some angst but over the top, which I liked. They have history, some of which is still fresh in both of their minds even after almost 2 decades. It just showed the strong feelings that Cora and Beau shared with each other. They also have some outside inference that plague them with some issues that will have to learn how to deal with.
Like I said before, there was a little bit of angst but not too much like in the previous installments with Rachel and Maybe’s relationships but I really didn’t care about not having all that drama. The chemistry was pretty fantastic!
Torn was a great addition to this already amazing series. It was full of friendships, love regained and I am pretty excited that there is a another little series that we get to follow Gregory another on the characters in this series that will now have their own novella series called Cake.
This was such a fantastic read and the second chance at love was so enjoyable. I think fans of the contemporary romances will devour this one as well as the previous books.
