Review: Tormented

Tormented Tormented by Max Henry
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Holy flipping hell.
I knew Sawyer was messed up, I knew this was going to be one hell of a ride but this was so much more than I expected.
I wondered as I read how it would end, would he end up dead because there's no way he's going to be magically fixed.
The devil inside won't be silenced, he takes the reader on a slippery slope, sliding down into the dark and dirty depths of his mind, a place with no remorse.
As much as you may want to dislike Sawyer you won't be able to. By the time you see what's deep inside him your already so invested you can't fault him, you can't turn your back no matter what he reveals.
Abbey was messed up from childhood and no matter how much she wants Sawyer everyone thinks he's the worst possible person for her. They treat her like a second class citizen basically, thinking she's beyond messed up and will never be normal.
But what if that person who's just as messed up if not more is just what the other needs?

Sawyer want's to help Abbey, but he also wants her. He has some deeper needs that are brought out by her, ones that only she can fulfill. While we see the darkest of him we also see the a part of Sawyer he didn't realize existed.
Their story is not fairy tale, if it is it's a dark, depraved, twisted tale.

And the end, that very last page broke me, I was right there with Sawyer ready to ball.
Way to wrap up one hell of a journey!!
