Just finished listening to this and what a lovely story that I have no hesitation in recommending , but then I have loved all of Carina stories they are very different and written with passion , insight ..
I loved the animal rescue which sadly is far too common placed, so this had a pull on my heart strings ..... Tor , a gentle giant with standards and a fierce love for is "niece" but as you listen to the story Carina develops the characters with real warmth feeling , thanks for a great listen and loved the narrators as always

I honestly wasn't sure about this book when I picked it up, because the premise seemed a bit... skeevy. I hate to even say that now that I read it, but that being said, I'm so glad I gave it a chance.
This was a beautiful love story from start to finish, and it encompassed every kind of love, not just the romance of falling in love.
I both read and listened to this one, both ways are enjoyable, although the female voice in the audiobook added to my sketchy feelings in the beginning, because she didn't transfer to a more mature/less mature voice (real time vs flashback memories) for Kenzi. Hearing a "little girly" sounding speech pattern for a "mature beyond her years" 18 year old almost ruined it. I tucked that little issue aside though and just got lost in the story.
The questionable subject matter was handled so beautifully that any taboo feelings you might have had going in are washed away, and you can't help but wish for Kenai and Tor to get their HEA.

Who can say they've loved the same person in so many ways, all their life.
My first Carian Cole book and WOW did she ever enthrall me with a rare, unforgettable, one in million love story. It was taboo, walked the line, and seared a place in my heart. Hooked from the first chapter, glued to my headphones, I know, no matter how many more romance stories I listen too in the future, I will always remember this one vividly. While this story may not be for some, I LOVE It!
A well written, passionate, poetic, story that builds angst, chemistry, love and sexual tension by alternating between the past and present. We see Tor and Kenzi's love grow, and transform over her lifespan. He's been in her life daily from day one, and was there to take care of Kenzi when her parents had to be away. She's grown up thinking of him as Uncle Tor, but as she reaches adulthood her feelings grow deeper. She no longer thinks of him as the uncle who was there to kiss her boo-boos, read her a bedtime story, or help navigate her teen years, but rather as a man that makes her burn with passion and her heart flutter. The flashback scenes really show how much Tor cared and loved Kenzi throughout the years, and built the angst Tor felt for developing deeper emotional feelings for Kenzi. But as she matures, he cannot deny their connection, and the love they have for each other. Kenzi's becomes the one women who truly understands Tor, she loves him and wants to be with him. As they accept and give into their feelings, love and start a relationship, there is one hurdle in their way, not everyone will accept or understand their relationship. Their love will be put to the test, when the lines have been crossed, truth comes out, and friends feel betrayed.
The narrations was awesome! Both Noelle Bridges, and Mason Lloyd performance was flawless; they really delivered on all the various emotions, and characters.
Torn was an amazing one of kind romance that may not be for everyone, but was truly unforgettable, and filled with so many beautiful poetic words and quotes. Well worth the time, and credit! Carian Cole has a passion for animals and it radiates throughout the story. As a dog lover, I found these scenes just as touching and heart-warming as Tor and Kenzi's love story.
