This is the 3rd book in the Torn Series-- First was Torn, then Twisted and now Tainted. I have to tell you I wasn't expecting there to be a third book because I figured the second book said it all, but I'm so happy to get to know more about these chracters and it answered some questions I had it was awesome! Five Stars! You have to read this whole series as one. Torn was about how Chloe and Drake met and you get a little glimpse into what there past were about, but you also meet Logan and Amber Chloes' best friends. You meet Drake's band members as well. There was a slight love triangle between Chloe, Drake and Logan but of course in the end Drake won Chloe's heart. Twisted had the same characters but added a few new ones which causes some ripples in Drake and Chloe's relationship because Drake had to go on tour with his band and leave Chloe behind while her pyscho mother was trying to hurt her, so it left Chloe in the hands of her cousin and another ex-Bf that was turned friend. Yes this girl has 2 best guy friends (no wonder Drake is always jealous) just saying :)!! A pyscho ex Gf appears to and makes up stories to Drake about Chloe and ex bf which sends Drake into a tailspin which eventually will break him and Chloe. Drake gets some help and finally him and Chloe get to live happily ever after. Tainted comes in 3 parts--- 1st part was Drake's POV after the break up, then the 2nd Part was after Chloe and Drake get back together and there struggles they faced but how they grew to trust again. The third part was a short part showing more into there future and it was amazing!
Pick these books up now below is a few of my favorite lines!
Oh and can't wait we get Logan's story at some point this year Yah!
We spent the rest of the drive to our first stop in silence as if we were both afraid to say something wrong. It seemed like we were teetering on the tip of an iceberg. With one wrong move, we'd come crashing down into a cold and unforgiving ocean of pain. I didn't know about him, but I didn't want to crash and burn. I wanted us to learn to trust again.
Drake-"I don't know if I can take this slow. I want to kiss you until we don't know where we are. I want to feel you pressed up against me, skin-to-skin, heart-to-heart." He leaned down and ran his lips across my nose. I didn't breath until he leaned away.
Drake- "I'm so lost, Chloe. I think I always have been."
Chloe- "I'll help you find your way. You are such an incredible person, and that shines through even when you try to hide it. None of us are perfect, and we never will be."
Drake- "I don't want to screw up and lose you again. I can't handle it."
Chloe- "Don't be afraid of that. I'm not going anywhere."
Drake- "Chloe, there's not much left to say since I've already said it all to you. Someoe like you comes around once in a lifetime, and I'm lucky to have found you. From the moment I saw you when you sat down next to me in class, I knew you were mine. I've never wanted or cared about another person the way I do with you. Neither of us is perfect, but you come pretty damn close. No matter how long I live, I'll never be able to tell you that I love you enough times. Life will throw shit at us because it always does, but we'll make it through. There is nothing in this world that could tear me away from you. I love you."
Chloe- "You were an asshole when we met. I wasn't sure if I liked you or hated you. From the first time you looked at me, you threw my entire world into chaos. Once I really go to know you, I realized you weren't an asshole at all. You're the kindest person I've ever met. No matter how bad things got, you never gave up on us even though I did. I don't know what I ever did to deserve you, but I'm grateful for every day I've spent with you and for every day that I will spend with you. I will never give up on us. I will never hurt you. We're in this until the end. I love you, Drake Allen."
