Can two afflicted strangers from the dark side, help each other back to the light?
Willow Steele is a survivor - barely. Her mother was murdered in front of her. Eight years old. Nowhere and nobody to call home. Willow did what she had to in order to survive life. Alcohol. Drugs. Rehab. Faced with a straightjacket, a bare cell at Ferndale and the prospect of going cold turkey from the vices that have been keeping her alive, Willow is furious. She wants her drugs. She wants her freedom. She wants out of this place.
Hunter Edwards is an addict. Just one taste, to impress a girl, and heroin ended up taking every bit of self-control he'd ever owned. Six months later he is hooked and spiralling out of control. Break and enters, car accidents, trouble with the law. His mother and the cops sign him into Ferndale as a last resort before shipping him off to the army.
That's where he sees her. Willow. The girl in the cell. The dark haired, blue eyed angel that steals his heart.
Can Willow & Hunter help each other through the hardest fight of their lives? Or will they both fall harder than ever before?
This is a dark romance. It is not for the faint hearted. You've been warned...
"Fate has brought us together for a reason. To help each other through the darkness and fix each others wounds."
Hunter and Willow are both survivors of drug abuse and they found each other when they needed it the most. Together, they were able to overcome their addictions and find peace in their lives. I think they were cute and Hunter really pooled out all his tricks when it came to his romantic side! But Torment is more than just a love story. There were moments I swooned and moments I was worried about what was going to happen next. It might even bring tears to your eyes. I think it's a good short read if your looking for one!
