GovernessInRed’s Book review for “Tear You Apart”
Author: Megan Hart
Publisher: Harlequin Mira
My rating: A++++
5 Bittersweet Stars!!!
This is the first book I’ve ever read by Megan Hart. It freakin’ took my breath away. The characters in this book feel so real.
What I planned when I started this book one evening was just reading a few chapters and falling asleep. Nope, didn’t happen. I faintly recall starting it at 9 o’clock and not stopping until 2 the next morning. It was definitely one of those kind of books.
It’s listed as an erotic romance. What I found it to be was much more. It’s deep. It’s twisted. It’s everything that’s not supposed to be in a story but is. It’s an emotional roller coaster that will have you thinking: “What the hell?” and the next moment have you tear up.
*Note: If you dislike reading about two people having an affair you will not like this story. *
The story is the heroines POV. Elisabeth is one of those kind of characters that simply pull you in from the beginning and having you want to know everything about her before the second chapter. She’s human. She makes mistakes. I love the fact that Ms. Hart lets you see how much the character battles out her decisions and how raw and believable the story is.
Elisabeth is married with two grown daughters and works for her best friend. Her life always looks perfect from the outside.
Then she meets him. Will Roberts is handsome and off limits. He’s everything that a woman could want… if she happened to be single. Then eventually she looks at him or he looks at her and all reason flies out the window. The moment comes when they finally gave into temptation & passion and all the consequences that come with it and it was all my heart could do not to beat out of my chest.
I was completely engaged from the first word until the last. Ms. Hart’s talents sparkle. This book is incredibly well written. I am so glad I had the chance to review it. The story absolutely consumed me… heart, mind and soul.
