Do not listen if you are sensitive to disturbing scenes, as the next novel, Torn from You, is a very dark romance.

Sculpt is an illegal fighter.
He’s also the lead singer of a local rock band.
No one knows his real name.
And from the moment I met him, he made me forget mine.

In order to convince Sculpt to give me self-defense lessons, I had to follow his one rule: no complaining, or he’d walk. I didn’t think it would be a problem. I could handle a few bruises. What I hadn’t anticipated was landing on my back with Sculpt on top of me and my entire body burning up for him.

I tried to ignore it. I failed, of course. And having a hot, tattooed badass on top of me week after week, acting completely immune to what he was doing to me – it was frustrating as hell, so I broke his rule. I complained. Then he kissed me.

Author’s note: This novella is a prequel. Listening to it before Torn from You is not required but is highly recommended.

Warning: huge cliffhanger. Like huge! However, With You is released on the same day as Torn from You the novel.

I love listening to the audio versions of books I previously loved reading, and the Tear Asunder series is one of the few dark romance books I enjoy, so I was excited for the audiobooks! Listening to With You didn’t disappoint – if you love audiobooks and dark romances, I highly recommend this novella – and series!

With You is the prequel novella to the Tear Asunder series, and tells the story of how Emily and Sculpt meet. Emily needs someone to teach her how to protect and defend herself, since she was attacked by a man recently, and Sculpt, while not the ideal man, is perfect for the job. But when Emily asks Sculpt to teach her how, he’s rude and a complete jerk, in that usual domineering, alpha-male way. But Emily is a tough girl, and she won’t back down from Sculpt, so he finally relents and agrees to help her out, starting them down a path towards a fierce, passionate love. But while it seems that these two are on their way to a happily ever after, everything changes one dark night.

Mackenzie Hart didn’t quite fit how I thought Emily’s voice would sound – it’s a little more mature than I expected, but I did appreciate the way she narrated this novella, and I’m definitely looking forward to her narration again in Torn from You. With You ends with a cliffhanger, but luckily, Torn from You is also out in audio! I really enjoyed listening this novella – and highly recommend it before starting Torn from You. The ebook is currently free, so if you get that you can also get the audiobook for $1.99. Fair warning though, this series is DARK and you’ll encounter some disturbing scenes. If that doesn’t turn you off, then you definitely need to start this series!

WITH YOU is now available on Audible:

  1. Ooh, yes. I remember this book. I got into dark reads because of this book. It gets crazier and better in the next book… and I really enjoyed this one.

  2. Thanks for the review! I have not read this series yet. I am listening to more books lately so this sounds (no pun intended!) great!
