Tortured, book one of the Tortured Souls series and debut novel by Kate Givans, is out now! If you are into contemporary and romance reads, this one is for you. The perfect mixture of drama, loss, healing, and love, this novel shows "love's ability to reach beyond scars and secrets, no matter how deep or hidden."
WARNING: This book is intended for 18+ readers ONLY. Potentially triggering content and concepts in books to follow.
It's over a year after the death of his best friend, but Josh is still tormented by the past. Free-spirited Willow changes everything when she walks right into his life, challenging him and helping him to feel something other than the overwhelming pain, sadness, and anger he had fallen into.
The only problem is that Josh finds Willow to be secretive and elusive. He believes she must have a few skeletons in her own closet, but is pushed away when he tries to uncover the truth about her.
Will Josh be able to get her to open up before it's too late? Or will he discover that some secrets are better left hidden?
For $2.99 you can get the Kindle version of this novel! Even better is if you do so through the link provided (Tortured via Amazon Smile), 5% of your purchase will be donated to the charity of your choice. Personally, I donate to the Wounded Warrior Project with every digital and physical purchase I make.
"We live, we die, we love, and we lose. Those moments of loss and death were hell on the soul; no amount of love or life could make the pain less hurtful, but they were the moments that carried you through, gave you the strength to fight another day. Willow gave me something to fight for."
If you do read this book, please take the time to give an honest review - and if time or words is something you do not have, please at least leave a rating. Indie authors appreciate this more than you can know.
"Life wasn't meant to be a day-in-day-out routine. Sure, those things could offer you stability and security when you had a family, or when you were older and ready to settle down somewhere. But the world was just too damn big to spend it all in one place; I couldn't think of a better way to see it than with the girl I'd fallen hopelessly, helplessly, and unashamedly in love with."
Keep an eye out for my review of Tortured, a possible interview with the author, and other cool things as the release continues over this and next week.
