―L.J. Shen, USA Today & Wall Street Journal bestselling author of VICIOUS
My innocence was stolen when I was abducted at five years old. For eleven years I held on by clinging to childhood fairytales. I waited for a prince to someday save me and carry me off to a happily ever after.
I had no idea my savior would come as a scarred recluse, covered in tattoos, who can't—or won't—speak a word. Nevertheless, the moment our eyes met I knew he was the one. My prince.
With his bare hands, he killed the monster who kept me captive. But people have a way of distorting the truth when the hero looks like a villain. As it turns out, Tyler Grace is many things: A myth. An outcast. A nightmare. Haunted by tragedy, he lives secluded in the forest. Some say they see him ride through town at night—straddling a black motorcycle, his face covered by a skeletal mask.
I’ve been warned to stay away, yet I can't stop thinking about him. I ache to hear his voice. And I want nothing more than to break through his walls. I know he's the only one who can break through mine.
Do we dare dream of a love that once felt impossible to find? Or will only our horrible, twisted past tie us together?
Tied is book two in the All Torn Up series but can be read as a standalone novel.

Tied is book 2 in Carian Cole’s All Torn Up series. The first book in this series, Torn, is one of my all-time favs. So I was so happy that this book really worked for me too!
This is a very emotional, trauma-filled read. Both the hero and heroine have had awful things happen in their pasts and have a lot to overcome. Their journey together was really well done and so beautiful. It’s slow and tender and just really sweet. This book has an age gap, the hero Tyler is 12 years older than Holly. I enjoyed Holly’s relationship with her brother and his girlfriend and Holly & Tyler’s love for dogs.
Holly was kidnapped when she was 5-years-old and was held captive (being tortured and abused) for 11 years. She escapes and while running/hiding in the woods is when Tyler finds her. He becomes her rescuer but they don’t actually meet again until 2 years later. I really liked the time apart because Holly obviously had a lot to work through and get used to, she spends time at a care home and goes to therapy. Tyler also had something horrible happen in his past, he was pushed into a bonfire as a teenager and badly burned. From the burns and skin grafts he is badly scarred and has become a recluse living on his own in the woods outside of town. After the burning incident, Tyler also heavily abused drugs and alcohol and ended up crashing his motorcycle, which lead to him damaging his vocal chords and having a hard time talking. So these 2 characters have been through SO much when they do meet up and start forming their friendship.
This is a very, very slow romance and it definitely felt right down this way for what these 2 characters were going through. They definitely feel meant to be though and I loved the sweet happiness they find together.
Holy shit! What a book. If you loved Still Beating, you will love this book. Do yourself a favor and pick it up. You won’t regret it! Easily one of my fave books this year. I liked it even more than Torn!🙊
Thanks so much, NetGalley and Forever, for the eARC in exchange for my honest review!
