Tour! A Review of Torrent by Gemma James

Torrent (Condemned #1) by Gemma James
Genre: Adult (Contemporary Romance) 18+
Date Published: July 22, 2014
Publisher: Self

She sent an innocent man to prison. Now, eight years later, he's returning the favor... 

I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The twisted part of 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 he's the one driven by obsession.

TORRENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part one of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read. Approximately 43,000 words.

Torrent is the first book in the Condemned series by Gemma Jones. This wasn't at all the story I was expecting. I was expecting a girl with a major case of Stockholm Syndrome, and that's not what I got at all. If I knew all that this book actually did entail, I never would have read it. I found myself cringing and crossing my legs more times then I care to count, but at the same time, did I put the book down? Call it morbid curiosity or whatever, but no I didn't. And will I read the next book? Probably so, and for the same reason. This story took dark and twisted to the extreme. In some ways, I can understand the mind set behind the actions/behaviors of Rafe and Alex. These are some majorly broken people. Some of it seemed a little unreal, but This is a situation I can't relate to in any way, so what do I know? There were some things that went beyond the believability factor for me, like the ending. I'm not a fan of how this cliffhanger ending played out. I really wasn't sure how to rate this one, but the fact that as disturbing as it was, and I still couldn't put it down.. well... maybe I need therapy too.

Torrent by Gemma James was kindly provided to me by Dark World Books for review. The opinions are my own.

Gemma James (a pseudonym for Christina Jean Michaels) loves to explore the darker side of sex in her fiction. She's morbidly curious about anything dark and edgy and enjoys exploring the deviant side of human nature. Her stories have been described as being "not for the faint of heart."

She lives with her husband and their four children—three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.
