Reader Reviews for "Torn Apart"
|Reviewed by FALLON LAK
|Review for TORN APART by Fallon Lak
I recently read a thrilling novel from first-time author, Fallon Lak. Ms Lak captures the reader's attention and doesn't let go until the end. The writer takes the reader through emotional upheavals that tug at the heart strings and allows you to rejoice when the plot culminates in a resounding kapow! I recommend you take a walk with Rebecca Stone, the protagonist of this interesting book. This book is a surprising story of intriguing romance. I, for one, look forward to reading Ms Lak's offerings in what I hope will be the near future.

Author Fallon Lak takes you into the explosive, unpredictable world of Rebecca Stone in Torn Apart.
Torn Apart begins as Rebecca meets handsome, mysterious Michael Valantino. She starts seeing him on the side and then announces that she is to be married in a matter of days. This news starts to tear apart her family. Her mother Magi is dead set against the whole thing and she refuses to acknowledge Michael in any way.
Pages turn easily as you watch Rebecca’s story transpire and find out if she manages to hold things together or if her family will soon be torn apart for good.
Ms. Fallon’s characters are very distinctive and very memorable as Rebecca’s story weaves and the lives of those around her intertwine, each leaving a mark on the other.
Torn Apart is a great book for those who like to remain on the edge of their seat! It’s blend of romance and suspense is sure to make anyone’s heart pump!
Torn Apart will leave your mind wandering over each and every event and their consequences long after the last page has been read!

A well crafted tale of romance and suspense. A true page turner, with an unseen ending. The author has presented the plot skillfully. I anticipate the release of her next book.

Well, I'm not much of a fiction reader, but I could not put this book down!. Ms Lak taunts and teases her reader such that I almost got upset when then next chapter was not a continuation of the previous chapter. This book totally pulled me in right to the end, and the ending - unreal!!! I eagerly await her next book.
