I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.
I’m a freak, a misfit, an odd end.
Abandoned and unloved.
But my happiness is so close I can taste it.
Until he shows up.
Gorgeous, expensive, and all man.
Sad brown eyes and a brilliant smile.
And he wants me to go with him.
His intentions are hidden.
His motives are unclear.
Yet, I leave with him because there’s no happiness here.
What he promises feels too good to be true…
A castle. A fortune. And horses too.
It’s too easy.
Nothing in my life has ever been easy.
What’s the catch?
There’s always a catch.
My Torin is my first 6 star read of the year and it’s going on this year’s list of Top Reads. This story is so hauntingly beautiful and complex I honestly don’t think I can find the words to describe how it made me feel without scaring you. If you’ve ever had the temptation to read a story outside of your comfort zone, this is the story to dip your toes in the water with, I promise it’ll be worth every tear you’ll shed. Ms. Webster’s managed to write three amazing characters in this story, that you won’t soon forget which were so unbelievably broken and yet so strong, my heart ached for them. While the story is heavy at times there were moments of levity that were so appreciated, so as not to drown us in gloom and despair. There were pages that were difficult to read at times, the words would become blurry, because I found myself laughing and crying at the same time like some deranged psych ward patient. After my heart took a pounding I was rewarded by the ending, and the beautiful and happy epilogue, that made me cry all over again out of sheer joy! Please, pleasepleasePLEASE, do yourselves a favor and read it!
I’m going to do something different. I really recommend going in blind, but I know not a lot of people are that brave, so I’m going to say as little as possible about the story.

Beautiful.”
“You said beautiful twice.”
“It needed to be said twice.”
A family devastated by loss. A Christmas miracle. A penny found on the ground. Random and seemingly strange coincidences. Strong and selfless love. Tyler. Torin. Casey-Casey.
“I don’t know how to love.”
“Love isn’t something you can control. It controls you. Fills you up and infects every part of you until all you can do is just live and breathe it every second of every day.”
“Sounds like a disease.”
“Love is a cure.”
I wish I could read this book for the first time, again.
