I was fifteen when I sent the love of my life to prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

Rafe Mason.

Rising MMA star.

My brother’s best friend.

The guy I destroyed with a single lie.

Now eight years have passed, and Rafe is free. And he only wants one thing.

Me, at his mercy.

And I am. I’m a prisoner on his island, held captive by his deviant desires, bound by his justified fury. Even worse, I’m a hostage of my own treacherous heart.

But Rafe is a man obsessed.

A man whose darkness is bigger than the both of us.

A man who will stop at nothing to get the answers he deserves.

Even if it means breaking me.

NOTE TO READERS: TORRENT is a dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part 1 of the Condemned series.


  • Dark but gripping

    By Ronnie:)
    I despise rape and this book was no doubt centered around it but I was very interested to see how the story played out. Unfortunately, there was little to no character development and it ended on a huge cliff hanger that I was not interested in pursuing. I had really hoped that the main character would come to her senses and build some strength and humility but she instead gave in. Complete let down. I finished this book but will not be reading more.

    This whole serious is awesome! It is a dark romance and for anyone who has any triggers regarding rape, molestation, or physical abuse you may want to reconsider purchasing it. It really is a wonderful book. Great suspense. Very emotional... you will get angry you will get upset and possibly shed a few tears but you will also love the ending of the 4th book: I can’t wait for the 5th book! I never read dark romance books unless this serious and I have sense read several/ they really are great reads!

    I love it, some people might think definitely but I love this book and it's series.
  • Not my cup of tea

    By Mattspunkingurl
    I read the whole book in the hopes that it would improve. It didn't. If you're into very bad things like rape, torture, and abduction you might like this book. If you don't want to read about that, don't get it. The entire book is about rape and abuse.
  • Disappointing

    By Boodles75205
    I generally rate books I merely like "4 *"... So this is saying something. If you have a grade school grammatical education, or a moral compass, this is probably not for you. :(
  • Eh.

    A lot of people find this book disgusting. My issue with it was that it is not well developed and is a cliffhanger which leads to a ton of other short stories. I view that as a cheap way of making money. Wouldn't recommend.
  • Awful

    By Rani1123
    This book is just awful. Simply having a back story doesn't mean there's any depth to a character. They seemed like they'd redeem themselves near the end but then the book ended. So, not only was it awful but it wasn't even a full book.
  • Really bad

    By JaneE723
    Disgusting, sickening, couldn't even finish it and deleted off my iPad. If you're into rape or having Stockholm syndrome then this book is for you. I can understand maybe one traumatic incident in a book to get a storyline going but this was just continuously bad throughout. I couldn't take it.
  • Loved it
