Tortured Skye: A Hawke Family Novel by Gwyn McNamee
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Gwyn McNamee is another new to me author and her writing style kicks butt! I was so impressed with her ability to bring the characters alive. Individually, Gabe and Skye were intense, edgy, passionate and vivid. Together, these two characters were even more powerful! Skye was a strong, bold and troubled woman who knew how to bring Gabe to his knees. Gabe was a hot alpha…a tattooed, pierced, bad boy with a candy coated heart? Yes, please! The chemistry between them was EXTREME. This is book two in the series and I haven’t read the first one YET. Since the characters are interconnected, it was a little confusing in the beginning but it didn’t detract from the book at all. This is a super SEXY and SAUCY romance. Told from dual POVs with a happy ending. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Falling in love with Gabe Anderson was as easy as breathing. Fighting my feelings for my brother’s best friend was agonizingly hard. I never imagined giving in to my desire for him would cause such a destructive ripple effect. That kiss was my grasp at a lifeline—something, anything to hold me steady in my crumbling life. Now, I have to suffer with the fallout while trying to convince him it’s all worth the consequences.
Guilt overwhelms me—over what I’ve done, the lives I’ve taken, and more than anything, over my feelings for Skye Hawke. Craving my best friend’s little sister is insanely self-destructive. It never should have happened, but since the moment she kissed me, I haven’t been able to get her out of my mind. If I take what I want, I risk losing everything. If I don’t, I’ll lose her and a piece of myself. The raging storm threatening to rain down on the city is nothing compared to the one that will come from my decision.
Love can be torture, but sometimes, love is the only thing that can save you.
