Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Psychological Romance
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble | Kobo | iBooks
I’m a freak, a misfit, an odd end.
Abandoned and unloved.
But my happiness is so close I can taste it.
Until he shows up.

Gorgeous, expensive, and all man.
Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile.
And he wants me to go with him.

His intentions are hidden.
His motives are unclear.
Yet, I leave with him because there’s no happiness here. 

What he promises feels too good to be true…
A castle.
A fortune.
And horses too.
It’s too easy.

Nothing in my life has ever been easy.
What’s the catch?
There’s always a catch.

4.5 Stars

Casey Doe, best known for her harrowing story as an infant shared by every major newspaper. She's counting down the days to eighteen, to her first real chance at escaping her given name and making her own happiness. Gripped by anxiety and ADHD she sees a counselor monthly, making it her mission to trip the woman up at any chance. On one random day though, she is the one tripped up, by the man in dark clothing with deep, emotive eyes who reached for the same penny on the dirty ground. It's a small moment, forgettable, replaced by fear, worry, and excitement when the older, handsome Tyler Kline comes to take her from her foster home. That moment begins her new life, introducing her to a world she'd never thought she'd know and to people she may never be able to understand. Tyler and Torin may call to her in every way known to man, but their home is filled with uncertainty.

"I want to give her everything. Because I need everything from her."

K. Webster has done it again, delivering a fresh story to readers with her stunning, descriptive writing and well developed characters. My Torin is a lot of what you'd expect from the creative K, but also a lot you would never even think of finding in a book. It's imaginative, a book made up of true-life scenarios mixed together with perfect-fiction romance. It features a sassy, but sweet heroine named Casey, a character with a heart of gold despite her vicious upbringing. Then there is Tyler and Torin, brothers with very different personalities and outlooks on life. While Tyler is smiling and optimistic, Torin is silent and almost scary. The three of them share a story that I couldn't truly sum up without giving all of My Torin away.

"I knew she was perfect. 
He knew it too."

Casey is the lead of the novel, her character arc leading the book from the start. She has the most character development, truly finding herself, her passions, and her future within the many pages of the book. Tyler was the most fleshed out, a character so sure of himself and his goals. Torin is best described by his incredible brightness and his inability to communicate or share. The three of them are connected, by emotions, by lust, and by several secrets. There's several parts to the novel for a reason, the relationship between the three couldn't simple be a single part book. How they interact, the dialogue they share (and don't share) made this book so incredibly good for me. I loved getting into each character's mind psychologically and I really appreciated the second-hand view we are given as readers with the changing point-of-view. I had just a few minor issues with the book, mostly related to tiny story gaps and a pretty intense moment between Casey and Torin. While the book is ultimately romantic, some of the darkness was a bit much for me, but not too much so for me to stop reading at any time.

"Lovely. Lovely. Lovely.
She's different.
Beautiful and perfect and mine."

This is, by far, my favorite new release from K. Webster in the last several months. It's 100% unique and totally a K. Webster-esque novel; the kind of book that draws you in with a clever heroine, wins you over with a handsome hero, and hooks you with the psychological twists and turns. It's a little dark, a bit unusual, and a lot romantic. This is definitely going onto my list of books that I will recommend to anyone looking for something new.

"It's hopeless. We're hopeless. And yet, I try."
