Book Review: Whisky Sharp Torn




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.

I am totally in love with this series!  It is based in Seattle which is local to me so picking up a book in this series is similar to slipping on a comfy pair of jeans before heading off to hang out with your best friends.  Now Cora hadn't been a character that I was familiar with but I looked forward to getting to know her simply because she was friends with Maybe and the rest of the gang.  And getting to know her and Beau was a real pleasure.  

Ms. Dane has penned another winner with TORN.  Characters that quickly become as old friends, witty dialogue and really hot sex.  Beau and Cora seem to be made for each other but they both have enough baggage from their pasts to keep both their lives and the story interesting.  I was actually sad when I finished the book and had to tell them goodbye.  

I do recommend WHISKEY SHARP TORN to my readers who enjoy a contemporary romance with a lot of heat.  There is explicit sex in the story but it follows as part of the plot rather then being the plot.  TORN does stand nicely on its own but reading the previous books will enrich the story as you will then have the backstory on a lot of the secondary characters.
