Review: Torn (LOST #4) by Cynthia Eden

In New York Times bestselling author Cynthia Eden’s latest novel featuring the Last Option Search Team (LOST), one agent’s investigation entices a killer into making her his prey.


Forensic anthropologist Victoria Palmer has always been better with the dead than the living. Shutting down her emotions, she lets few people in. But then Victoria’s latest investigation takes her and agent Wade Monroe to Savannah, Georgia. Handsome, dangerous, and more than ready to play dirty on any case, Wade weakens Victoria’s aloofness with just one glance.

. . . LOVERS

Wade knows their recent cases have pushed Victoria beyond her limits. But her skills are crucial to finding a college student who went missing five years ago. Victoria is able to determine she was murdered, and that the killer is still on the loose.

And when the vicious murderer targets Victoria, Wade must do everything in his power to protect her . . . because he refuses to let a woman he loves be torn from him . . . again.

Monsters can come in all forms. And sometimes they hide in plain sight. Victoria Palmer can attest to this as she witnessed her father’s sins and committing a few of her own. Wade Monroe is tired of losing those he cares about and helps his friend create LOST to help find the missing. Torn partners up Wade and Victoria that leads an investigation that will push their limits.

Holy Toledo, Batman! Cynthia Eden may be one of the best Romantic Suspense authors around today. There are always twists and turns to be found that completely knocks you off your seat! I think the best part of any of her novels is that you get a few different point of views, usually the heroes and the villains, which actually does not hinder the story but enhances it.

You know you have read a good book when not only can you not put it down but you actually dream about the characters. Miss Eden has an amazing talent of transporting you into the book and leaves you there unapologetically! This book had so many surprises that I literally was jumping at any noise that happened while I was absorbed in this book. It was not scary or horrific (even though the acts done by the people in the book was all kinds of wrong) it was the feeling of paranoia you can get form watching shows like Criminal Minds too long.

This is the fourth book in the LOST series; which I have heard but never read. I was able to read it without being confused or feeling behind. You can bet that I will read the previous books (I actually bought the first 3 in paperback!!). Torn had great characters that you want to understand better and wish they would get out of their own way to find happiness in such a dark world.

If romantic suspense is your forte, then the LOST series is something you need to read!

I was gifted this novel by the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are solely my own!
