    One thought on “Torn: True Love”

    1. I was lucky enough to meet the author at YallFest 2013 and she was nice enough to send over a copy of her novel for me to review! This is a dystopian novel about a 17 year old girl name Krissa Channing. She is an only child that lives with her mother and father in the textiles district. There are seven other districts that are each assigned a job by the government. The other districts surround the big city named Headquarters. It has always been Krissa’s dream to move to the big city when it ca [...]

    2. Not my typical read, although I do love dystopian and a little romance. but I really enjoyed it, and it is a truly unique story. It's kind of a blend of a love story in a dystopian society that's not all that terrible.BUT! I loved it. I found myself engrossed in Krissa's story and the tragic turn her life takes in her her final year before becoming an adult. A strange world indeed after WWIII, but again doesn't seem to terriblet. I can't wait to see if it takes on a more sinister twist and the c [...]

    3. This book is so different in every way I imagined and it's really unique! I felt myself being in a conflicted situation so often during reading because of everything the main character, Krissa, had to go through.The dystopian society in this book consists of the government (which is located at Headquarters) and several units (which are located in a circle around HQ). Each unit specializes in a certain task and each citizen is able to lead a normal and healthy life with everything that's importan [...]

    4. Stars:4Summary: In a time where the government is in complete control, an 18 year old girl named Krissa has to plan out her life before she has to be paired. It was either be paired or being a single. Going against the government or being sweeper. To be paired you have the option of putting in your top choices of who to be paired with and the government takes that under consideration and pairs you. But when Krissa falls in love with Braiden Connor she never expected to question the government an [...]

    5. Torn true love is a sort of dystopian utopia mix. Torn true love tells the story of Krissa, a teenaged girl living in ‘The Headquarters’. The Headquarters is her country’s form of government enforced living quarters. They took over when disease, natural disasters, and pollutions devastated her country. Headquarters took over and made things better, on the surface anyway. Krissa lived in the textile section of the Headquarters. They are responsible for providing clothing and such to other s [...]

    6. Could you imagine having the government decide who you are paired with for your entire life and also what job you will spend your days carrying out?This is the world Krissa lives in and this is the world that decides her fate.This novel was given to me by the Author to read and provide an honest review.I was immediately sucked in by the drama surrounding Krissa, she is such an intriguing character and seems so at ease with her future – that is until she meets Braiden.Braiden is her everything, [...]

    7. received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review"The title "true love" felt so hypocritical to me. My true love was tainted with betrayal, deceit and torment."So I'm not entirely sure where to start with this review. I loved the idea of this story. It's just yet another instance of the follow through not being up to par. Krissa and Braiden enter a relationship that by all means appears to be a good one. Then they do something that breaks the rules and their relationship changes. [...]

    8. Wow. Excellent concept on so many levels. You've got a dystopian government theme running in the background with a class of high schoolers getting ready to graduate and needing to decide their top three picks to be "paired" (married) to for the rest of their lives as well as pick which "unit" (production center or state) they want to make a living in. (If they aren't paired for reproducing (the government's highest favored choice), they run the risk of staying single and becoming "sweepers", the [...]

    9. Futuristic Romance or Tragedy? I enjoyed reading this story. It was hard to put down and read very quickly. It covered a years time, so not too specific or detailed on all events. The ending did sneak up on me though, and now I can't wait to read the next one. A bit about the story The setting is the textile unit post World War III. The country is run by the government and basic necessities are provided, while you have to work extra to have extra. There are several units (textile, educators, agr [...]

    10. Imagine choosing your mate and your occupation before you graduate high school. This is the choice Krissa Channing faces. She had dreams of living in the Headquarters and being paired with someone similar to her. All this changes when she meets and falls in love with Braiden.Braiden is aloof, moody and the best friend of her ex-boyfriend (Chance). Krissa mistakenly thinks she can change him. The more she tries to change him, the more he withdraws. His mood-swings and emotional abuse of Krissa go [...]

    11. Torn True Love? I received this book from the author at Yall Fest in SC. She is a very talented writer. Her debut book , which is in the dystopian genre, is truly contemporary or NA in my opinion. The love story between Krissa and Braiden wasn't true love. Braiden's character had many flaws. I felt like Krissa was way too strong to be paired with him. I think she knows that as well. "How was I to be paired with someone I hated so much?" I hope for Krissa, that she finds someone to truly fall in [...]

    12. This book was an excellent beginner to a series. It set the stage and got me interested in what could/will/won't/might happen next and that is really what a first book needs to do. I feel like this book may be the weaker of the three but that is ok. It is strong enough to keep me reading on through the next and that is what really matters.The characters really begin to flesh out in the last half of the book and the story continues with its' twists and turns.I recommend this book and I highly rec [...]

    13. K.D's writing style seemed to flow nicely in this book. I didn't always agree with Krissa's decisions, however, I can see that they are based on the the modern notion of how teenagers think. I felt bad for Krissa, seeing her make those common mistakes that most girls make. I'm intrigued to read the next book because I want her to find "true" happiness and be able to see her character grow.

    14. Can I give negative stars? Please? This book was TERRIBLE. Kris was in a verbally abusive relationship but she still loved him?!?!?!?! WHAT?!?!?! I HATED THIS BOOK WITH A PASSION! The author ALSO had awkward time jumps and changes in tense. DON'T READ!

    15. I love the idea of the world that is created — there were several districts that were specialized in something, and then there was the Headquarters. To a sense, there is some sort of a “freedom” where you can request for a district you want to work in, and to be forever paired with someone you choose.However, I think the development fell short. For me, there was a lack of world-building. I started the book with the thought that this is a dystopian one (well, it is), but it felt more of lik [...]

    16. This review is also available on my blog, Bows & Bullets ReviewsKrissa Channing's never had any problems abiding by the governments rules. Then she meets Braiden and things change some. He rebels against their governments pairing rules and the need to allow them to govern their positions in life. Suddenly she is pushed down a path she never thought she'd have to travel and her once bright future is looking dimmer by the minute.I've kinda been avoiding reviewing this. I hate writing negative [...]

    17. Read more of my reviews at My Full Bookshelf ReviewsI received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.Aside from the poem at the beginning of the book, there were absolutely no redeeming factors in Torn True Love. I did not know how much hate I could have for a love triangle--or a love interest--until I read this. That wasn't only problem, though; it seemed like I was constantly rolling my eyes while reading this.However, the main problem was the love triangle. Braiden is stra [...]

    18. I received a copy from the author in exchange for a review. I want to start off saying a huge thank you to K.D. Ferguson for considering me to review this for her, and of course giving me a copy.I enjoyed her idea for this world that the main character Krissa lives in. Several districts and Headquarters at the center of it all. You abide by the government’s rules, you can be placed in the district you request and are forever paired with whom you choose.If you do not abide, or you choose to sta [...]

    19. My summary:After World War 3, Headquarters is created as a new 'government' to lead the people still living. There are eight districts that surround HQ. They are: Resource, Education, Agriculture, Textile, Construction, Care, Finance, and Sweeper. (Sweepers are the low-life people that are put together because they have been viewed as unable or unwilling to cooperate with Headquarters.) Each district has their own jobs to do to keep each other alive. The book follows a girl named Krissa who has [...]

    20. I was really intrigued by the life that was portrayed. I really like the whole dystopian futuristic stuff, alot. I like the entire society description and the choosing I think. I immediately had a love hate relationship with the MC, Krissa but only because she seemed a bit fickle and maybe a tad easy. She was definitely a girl transitioning to woman and searching for her match to be paired with so it made sense to me. I like her family dynamic and the group of friends along for the ride. Most as [...]

    21. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I loved the concept of this book but it had disappointed me on so many levels.First, the main character, Krissa, didn't work for me. I think she's weak, frustrating and she makes stupid decisions. I feel like she keeps everything to herself. And Braiden. He's mean and disrespectful. I hated him so much. Second, everything seemed so rushed. The characters get together, talk for a minute or two, and then the scene's over. Third, the l [...]

    22. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*This book was really different from what I'm used to reading and I enjoyed it. Torn True Love is about a girl named Krissa Channing who lives in a dystopian world. The country is sorted into different units. In Krissa's final year of high school she starts dating a boy named Braiden. At first Krissa and Braiden are a great couple but then things start to change. Braiden starts becoming distant but Krissa is determined to keep their [...]

    23. First, I would like to thank the author K.D. Ferguson for giving me this book for an honest review. I enjoyed the story, but I felt it could have been better. What is lacking for me is the world building for a dystopian novel. As it is it feels like just a romance book, fix the world building and give us more on the dystopian aspect of the novel and it would be so much better. The characters are well developed and written, as for the abusive Braiden, I know it makes some people mad and they see [...]

    24. A love story based in a dystopian world. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a honest review. I was unable to read and review by the agreed date, so I purchased a copy.Torn: True Love is a love story based in a dystopian world.Floating or forced, Krissa has a plan but no control. Change, confusion, heartbreak, betrayal, forgiveness, and love, Krissa feels it all--but how can love make a person filter out all the negative, and only see the positive? This book is a high emotional rolle [...]

    25. When reading this dystopian I had a weird sense of deja vu that I've read so many elements of this story, so many times before. I have to say I wasn’t overly convinced of the love-story and for the majority of this book I disliked the main love interest, the romance seems to develop at lightning-speed and is very one-sided. I received this book as part of the blog tour for the second book in the series, Tore Divided Love.

    26. I typically don't read books like this. It was very intriguing and I loved the world created. Its a futuristic love story. I will be checking out the next book. I have got to know what the deal with Braiden is. Great book and a unique story.

    27. Like the concept, but the main characters didn't do it for me. Krissa, I can't believe what you did to yourself. You don't know what love is. Will review fully later.
