Don’t read this one if you don’t like disturbing books.
THANK YOU to Jana for the recommendation, once again. I trust her exquisite taste & will read every book she throws my way.
It’s been a while since a book has made me feel this unsettled, especially romance. I loved it.
Make sure to read the warnings in the synopsis.
Torment: Part One
Suspense, Romance, Abuse, Smut, Taboo
Torment Part One is a dark, taboo, age gap, MC, contemporary romance.
How did I get here?
Broken, bruised, and mentally shattered.
For most of my life, my older stepbrother, Shay, was my hero, my rock, and my best friend. The one I knew I could always rely on.
For many years, I accepted everyone and everything around me. But as I grew up, the veil was lifted, and I slowly came to understand how f*cked up it all really is. These men, who I considered uncles and close family friends, are members of the dominant MC, The Celtic Beasts. Shay is not only a proud member. He is the one they send in to do their dirty work. For some reason, this tough, muscled, terrifying guy, needs me to ground and comfort him.
But I have always had bigger plans. Bigger dreams. I don’t want to be trapped here, in this life that is dark, bloody and violent. I want to get out, escape… but Shay has other plans for me.
What do you do when your protector becomes the very root of your torment?

What a strange book.
My heart was pounding the entire book, but the reasons slowly shifted. I knew this was a taboo romance with incestuous themes, but I didn’t expect Shay to be a grooming psychopath. By the end of this book, all my naive excitement was gone and replaced with fear/anxiety.
My shaky trust in Shay was so quickly stripped away. I was angry at everyone for enabling his behaviour when it began crossing lines. I began fearing what he would do next, how he would hurt Mina next. It was a lot of suspense.
