Torrent (Dark Romance)

Gemma James

I was fifteen when I sent the love of my life to prison for a crime he didn’t commit.

Rafe Mason.

Rising MMA star.

My brother’s best friend.

The guy I destroyed with a single lie.

Now eight years have passed, and Rafe is free. And he only wants one thing.

Me, at his mercy.

And I am. I’m a prisoner on his island, held captive by his deviant desires, bound by his justified fury. Even worse, I’m a hostage of my own treacherous heart.

But Rafe is a man obsessed.

A man whose darkness is bigger than the both of us.

A man who will stop at nothing to get the answers he deserves.

Even if it means breaking me.

“This is a hard-to-put-down captive empowerment story, with the kind of offbeat cliffhanger you will never expect. It’s as vicious and unpredictable and rapid as a…well, a torrent. Brilliant!” — Pam Godwin, New York Times Bestselling Author

“The story left my jaw on the floor with my tongue hanging out…I need more!” — Naughty Books and Bits

“Torrent was so devastatingly and deliciously dark, with a BIG OL cliffy at the end…so don’t be surprised if you’re left with a HUGE hangover and salivating for Rampant.” — Rachel, Bound By Books

“Torrent definitely ranks up there within my top five favorite reads of 2014, thus far. It blew my mind out of the freaking Milky Way!” — Books Over Boys

“Gemma James has managed once again to shock me, twist my psyche, and force me to fall into submission with the anti-hero.” — Kathy Reads
