Review Blitz
Author: Gemma James
Genre: New Adult/Dark Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 22, 2014
I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The messed up part about this story is that I still want him, even now. Now that he's holding me captive on an island. Rafe has his reasons for doing what he's doing, and if I'm honest, I can't blame him—I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn't commit. But now he's free and the tables have turned...now he's the one driven by obsession.


"Torrent" is a very dark tale of a young woman, Alexandra (Alex,) who has been controlled by the men in her life for most of her life. Her mother married Abott DeLuca when Alex was young and Abott adopted her. He came with a son, Zach. Even though Alex  would be considered her 'brother' he forces her into a sexual relationship where violence becomes the norm. Alex learns very quickly to comply in order to avoid further pain and degradation at her step-brother's hands. She has to live with intense guilt when her mother catches Zach in her bed. Even though she was not willing, her mother does not wait for an explanation but commits suicide in the face of her, believed, daughter's indiscretion.
Alex can never have a real romance as Zach beats every man she comes to care for and intimidates anyone who may come to even get close to her.  While suffering at the dark passions of her step-brother, she is being stalked by Rafe, a man she sent to prison for a crime he did not commit. Her life becomes a series of agony-ridden desires and we feel her pain as we breathlessly turn each page.
This story captured my attention and I found myself finishing it in only one night! ~JoEllen
