Marina Knight came to this party for one thing only: to slap Gage Emerson in the face. Poised to snatch up her family’s real estate empire, the sexy tycoon is on the verge of making an enemy for life—even if he can make her melt with a single kiss …
When Gage discovers that the alluring woman before him is the key to his latest acquisition, claiming her as his suddenly doesn’t seem quite so cut-and-dried. To get what he wants, he must get to know the fierce woman willing to face him down—as she steadily steals his heart.
Gage’s persistence and intense passion war with Marina’s determination to protect her family. As they delve deeper into an affair they didn’t see coming, Marina’s torn: Will she lose her heart to Gage—or everything she holds dear?
Torn was a very fast read for me. It can easily be read in one sitting. I liked it. Gage was a secondary character in the first novella in this series and I was really looking forward to him getting his own story. He’s not one for relationships so I couldn’t wait to meet the woman who would bring him to his knee’s.
Speaking of… I really liked Marina. She’s tough as nails and doesn’t take crap from anyone. I enjoyed the banter between Gage and Marina. They go from not being able to stand each other to scorching up the sheets in no time.
The sexual content is comparable to mainstream romance. It’s not overly explicit, but still enjoyable to read. There are plenty scenes within this one.
Overall, I really liked this one. There may have been a time or two that I feel things were rushed, but overall this is a great read.
