Love is like an avalanche.  It hits hard, fast and without mercy.

At least it did for me when Sculpt, the lead singer of the rock band Tear Asunder knocked me off my feet. Literally, because he’s also a fighter, illegally of course, and he taught me how to fight. He also taught me how to love and I fell hard for him. I mean the guy could do sweet, when he wasn't doing bossy, and I like sweet.

Then it all shattered.




I was alone and fighting to survive.

When I heard Sculpt's voice, I thought he was there to save me. I was wrong.

*Warning: This book contains some disturbing situations, strong language and sexual content. Over 18 years.

This is a love story with some dark elements. No cliffhanger and next in the Tear Asunder series is Ream's story.

Sculpt is an illegal fighter.

He’s also the lead singer of a local rock band.

No one knows his real name.

And from the moment I met him, he made me forget mine.

In order to convince Sculpt to give me self-defense lessons, I had to follow his one rule—no complaining or he’d walk. I didn’t think it would be a problem. I’d been bucked off horses, kicked and stepped on. I could handle a few bruises. What I hadn’t anticipated was landing on my back with Sculpt on top of me and my entire body burning up for him.

I tried to ignore it.

Then I tried to stop it.

I failed of course. And having a hot, tattooed badass on top of me week after week, acting cool and completely immune to what he was doing to my body—it was frustrating as hell, so I broke his rule—I complained.

Then he kissed me.

Author’s Note: This novella is Sculpt and Emily’s beginning and how they met. It is an extra and not required to be read before “Torn from You”. Their story and what happens to them is the novel “Torn from You”. 

*Warning* Huge cliff-hanger. Like huge! But “With You” and “Torn from You” are released on the same day.*


Before I talk about With You/Torn From You, I need to give those who do not speak Boston slang a lesson.  According to the Urban dictionary, in Boston when you need to describe something as being really awesome you say it's wicked pisser. (pronounced piss-ah)  For example, The Sox game last night was wicked pisser. (End of lesson.)

With You/Torn From You is WICKED PISSER!!!!!

Holy hell!  Mother F****N loved every single minute, word, paragraph, page of this insanely wicked fantastic book.  I expected good, but NOTHING like this!  I seriously could not have picked a better book to end the year with!

It’s no secret that I love my dark reads, but this was a difficult one for me.  I would have read with my eyes closed if it was possible.  I have never ever been squeamish with a dark read like this before; this was just so intense.  Especially the beginning – it was so nerve wracking.  This is not a page-turner, it’s a nail-biter.  I was torn between reading this in one sitting and taking a break.  I really wanted to know what happens, but I also needed a break from all the intensity.  There are some terrible, horrible, and shocking things that happen.  Just when I thought I knew what was going to happen, there was an unexpected twist.  Torn From You is filled with twists, turns, and WTF moments. 

This book is what you think it is, then it’s not, then it is, then it’s not……. so it’s very easy to ruin it by talking plot and story line.  The plot and story line are what make this such a FANTABULOUS read!  The book blurb tells you everything you need to know.  What happens after that point, well…. that’s the whole point of reading the book, and I am not saying a single word about it. 

But, I will say…..

This book will have your heart beating out of your chest, panting for air, and burning from the anticipation.  The feelings Nashoda elicits from the reader are unreal.  She has created the perfect @&^%@&$#^$^#!  Logan is a total and utter a-hole.  And, I don’t mean conceited and full of himself, I mean full out A-S-S-H-O-L-E.  I hated him and wanted to scratch his eyes out, but I couldn’t bring myself to not want the shit out of him at the same time.  I want him!  I want him!  I want him!  I want him – BAD! 

The entire cast of characters is amazing, and the story is well developed.  While there isn’t a cliffhanger for Logan and Emily, there is one for Ream and Kat.  I thought I was totally wrapped up in Logan and Emily’s story, but with the story line that Nashoda started for Ream and Kat has me sitting on the edge of my seat waiting (impatiently) for Overwhelmed by You.

Sooooooooo…….. the BIG question.  Do you read the novella (With You) first or after Torn From You?  Well, the author says either.  Torn From You is a standalone and With You is the story of how Emily and Logan met before the events of Torn From You.  I read the novella first.  Personally, I feel you really must read With You first.  It helped me figure out why some of what happened in Torn From You did before it was exactly spelled out.  Torn From You was so intense (for me at least) I’m not sure I could have made it to the end without reading the novella first.  The novella gave me some peace of mind (if you could even call it that) when I was reading Torn From You.  BUT, if you are someone that likes a mystery and a ton (and I mean piles and piles) of angst and heart attack inducing torment, then by all means read the novella last – LOL.  

4.75 STARS!!!!!  (near perfection!)


Nashoda Rose lives in Toronto with her assortment of pets. She writes contemporary romance with a splash of darkness, or maybe it’s a tidal wave. Her novel “Torn from You” is the first in the Tear Asunder series. When she isn’t writing, she can be found sitting in a field reading with her dog at her side while her horses graze nearby. She loves interacting with her readers on Facebook and chatting about her addiction—books.


● On Valentine’s Day when I was fourteen my dad was taking me out for dinner and instead drove up the driveway of a horse farm. There in the field was a big chestnut horse with a pink bow around his neck. It said, ‘To my daughter on Valentine’s Day Love Dad.’ I had my horse Sunny for twenty years.

 I was eating chicken wings one day and suddenly I stopped, put it down and never touched meat again for 19yrs.

● My mom used to give me what looked like the ‘bowl’ haircut when I was a kid. UGH.

● I cut off a police officer making a left hand turn when I was 16 years old. He wasn’t happy and gave me a reckless driving charge.

● Really rare…my horse Nash was born a twin out in my back field.

●  I can make the best French Onion soup and grilled cheese, but that’s about it.

● I’ve had my hands inside my Newfie’s and Yorkie’s abdomens. Yep, I assisted in spaying them and did all their sutures.

● I’m terrified of flying. I mean completely petrified. I had to go to the hospital before one flight because I was so stressed out my jaw locked shut. I still fly as I never want it to stop me from enjoying life, but damn it sucks.

● I hand raised several baby raccoons over the years for my work. One of them never left. I named him Buddy and had him for seven years. He had a cat door in my window to leave whenever he wanted. He never did. Buddy slept in bed with me, loved to have a shower, opened the fridge and cleaned the cats. Also, he used a litter box. Buddy died of a kidney tumor ten years ago and I still miss him to this day (But I never want another one, LOL).

I did my course for dog Massage Therapy.

● I went to boarding school for two years and loved it. I also worked there in the summers looking after the horses as it was also a camp.

● I’m not a shopper. Don’t like trying on clothes or shoes or looking for that perfect outfit. But I do love purses.

● I smashed my car into a hydro pole when I was in my late teens. The wires fell on my car and I was so scared I jumped out. A big big no no. The cop couldn’t figure out how I was still alive. When she looked down at my feet, she saw I was wearing rain boots. They saved my life.

● When I’m feeling down, I buy a fish. A live fish. Currently, I have three fish tanks at work and three at home.

Writing about men with tattoos has made me want one, so I’ve finally decided on the perfect image to get on my side. A calligraphy style horse head.

● I have a scar on my left leg from a German Sheppard bite and another running the length of my right outer thigh from a coat hanger sticking out of a garbage bag.

● I love to try to fix everything myself. So, I was re-flooring my spare bedroom and ripping out the old carpeting when the X-Acto knife slipped and went straight into my upper thigh.

● Never been married. Just haven’t met the guy I want to spend the rest of my life with. Oh well, book boyfriends are hot. Bonus…I can make my own book boyfriends.

● I’d rather swallow a box of nails then do any kind of public speaking.

● I have a Red-footed Tortoise named ‘Bucket’.
