New Release & Review ~ Torn Between Two by Mia Kayla ~ Jill Mac


Torn Between Two (Torn Duet #1) by Mia Kayla
Release Date: January 23, 2017
I believe in fairy tales — the kind where a knight in shining armor sweeps me off my feet. Coming from a broken home, fairy tales housed the hope I clung to. Never in my life did I imagine two knights coming into my life— two knights that wore very different armor.   A rockstar versus a lawyer. Fast and furious versus deliberate and calculated. Intense and passionate versus strong and devoted. Chaos versus stability.   I fell in love with one in the craziness of a concert. I fell in love with the other in the silence of his compassion.   And now I am Torn Between Two.


Jill's Review
3.5 Stars

Before I talk about this book, can we talk about the cover. HOLY HOTNESS! This cover alone made me want to read the book then I read the synopsis and HELLO... LOVE TRIANGLE!! I was soooooo excited to read this book. Since I've never read any of Mia's books I didn't know what to expect, I just knew there was a triangle involved and I love me some love triangles. 

So I have to be honest I struggled with the first half of the book. I didn't struggle to the point where I wanted to stop reading, I just found myself putting my kindle down and not rushing to pick it back up. I felt I wasn't really connected to the story in the beginning.

The story was good. I'm not a huge fan of rock star romances but Torn Between Two didn't really focus on a band or anything like that.
So there's Hawke and Josh. And both are DELISH.

Hawke, the rock star, being the hot lead singer to Def Deception. He was all bad-boy. So wrong but oh so right. 
And Josh, the aspiring lawyer, shoe-salesman. Josh was adorable. I loved him and found myself cheering him on. He's gorgeous, funny, caring. THE TOTAL PACKAGE. Not that I hate Hawke, I'm just saying I'm #TEAMJOSH.

The thing that really annoyed me was Sams weakness when it came to Hawke. My biggest pet peeve in romance novels is a weak female. Don't get me wrong she wasn't like horribly pathetically weak, but once Hawke called (which was always out of the blue) everything stopped for her. Like I totally understand the female mind *hello I am a female* but like come on. When a guy is strictly calling you only when he's in town, its time to let it go. I found myself wanting to jump into the book and shake her multiple times. Honestly I get that you cant help who you love, BUT come on! You have Josh right next to you, wanting to be with you and you're still stuck on rock star boy. 

Towards the end of the book I found myself more interested in this story. Wanting to find out who she ends up with or where and how this book was going to end. I knew it was going to end in a cliffy (which I usually hate) so if you are someone who hates cliffys I recommend waiting until both books are out. 
All in all it was a good story that left me wanting to read the next book. So that's a good sign. I'll definitely be reading book two to see where this story goes and who Sam picks. *fingers crossed* for my boy Josh.

Choosing Forever (Torn Duet #2) by Mia Kayla
Release Date: February 12, 2017
Life is made up of choices. Single choices like bricks laid out in a path. A path that leads to your future. At twenty four years old, I would have never guessed I would be stuck between two men—two men from opposite spectrums of the universe. Their lives, their worlds, their demeanor is as different as the darkest of nights and the lightest of days. I love them both, but I have to choose. There is only one choice I can make. And I choose forever.
