Review: Who doesn’t love a good romance/dystopian/action-packed YA novel? If you don’t, then you’re reading the wrong blog. Cause I do of course, because I write them. But today, I’m writing a review of TORE: DIVIDED LOVE by KD FERGUSON. This is the follow-up to book 1, TORN: TRUE LOVE. This book unravels more of the overall plotline and I was really drawn in. First of all, the cover is amazing – 10 times better than the first. It really staged the setting of the work and my mind was already swirling with imagery, which KD delivers in droves. Also, the war between the two loves of Karissa’s life rages on, and you never truly know which one she is truly swaying towards. This war in her mind kept me guessing and wanting more. The one thing you really want in a sequel is to see characters and plotlines advance. And KD did not disappoint in that department. Krissa’s character really grew up – fast – as evidenced by the better choices she made this time around. I love the fact that there is a lot more mystery and suspense in this sequel. I was engaged the entire way. Braiden came back for round two and as the story advances, he began to show his ‘true’ side throughout the novel, which kept the pages turning for me and changed my feelings on him a little. And yep, you guessed it; there is a twist towards the end. And I never saw it coming.
But it left me wanting more because it happens to a critical character. Sorry, can’t spill the beans. Just go out and grab book 1 and 2 to find out what I’m talking about.

“I wasn’t ready.” “Ready for what?” The enforcement was stern with his questions, simple and to the point. He was certainly not trying to make small talk. “To be paired. I freaked out a little. I needed to see what a Single’s life was like.” Braiden’s responses flowed out of his mouth with such fluidity. “And you thought the best option was to run away to find your answer? We would have granted you access.” Braiden made no reply, and instead remained eerily quiet. “Well, what did you find, Mr. Connor? That the Sweeper life isn’t a desirable one? That one is much better off following our rules and regulations?” “A Sweeper’s life is not what I want.” Although he was saying everything I’d always wanted him to say, something about it was off. He responses seemed so, rehearsed. “I wasn’t thinking clearly. I’m sorry for any trouble I caused. It won’t happen again.” “It better not. You’ve been assigned to this district, and you have been paired with Krissa. You’ll be on probation for the next year, which means one slip up and you’ll be in the Sweeper unit permanently, or worse. Understood?” “Yes Sir.” This time he wasn’t mocking the officer. He looked ashamed. “Krissa, do you agree to these terms?” Did I really have another option? If I didn’t agree, I could end up single, but would a life with Braiden make me happy? Yes, I still loved him, but how was I to let him ease back into my life after all the hurt he caused?
