Torn by K.A. Robinson
This is the first installment in the "new adult" series Torn. The chemistry between Chloe and Drake is very swoon worthy, and while the story followed a somewhat predictable arc, I still found myself reading to the wee hours to read how it all played out. I am *really* glad that book two is already published because the author leaves you on a cliffhanger.
Book Description via Amazon
Two people with battered souls are thrust together unexpectedly, leaving a profound impact on each other’s lives.
Chloe hasn’t had the easiest childhood. With a mother who was absent most of the time, she practically had to raise herself. Determined to start a new life and leave her demons behind, she heads to West Virginia University with her best friends Amber and Logan. On the first day of classes, she spots a student who takes her breath away. Drake is a pierced, tattooed bad boy, and no matter how hard she tries to fight it, he’s all she can think about.
Drake has never cared about anyone other than himself, but when Chloe grabs the empty seat next to him in class, he is instantly drawn to her. Drake is left wondering whether this girl can take his cold, womanizing heart and alter him forever.
Developing feelings for each other was never a part of their plan, and when it happens, things do anything but fall into place. Long-hidden emotions are revealed and friendships are tested to the brink as Chloe and Drake become helplessly entwined in each other’s love.
