Seabrook packed a wallop with this first standalone installment in her scintillating new Savages and Saints series, a spinoff to her uber popular Wild Irish trilogy. So if you are looking for scorching hot, angst-ridden love story with ALL THE FEELS, featuring a tortured alpha hero and the starry-eyed girl who’s loved him for an eternity, then you are going to be on cloud nine! THE STORY: Quinn Savage has been in love with her older brother Kade’s best friend, Zee St. James, forever, and in the emotional aftermath of Zee’s father’s funeral, a moment of comfort offered to the broody bad boy of her dreams ends in a forbidden kiss that rocks her world! But Zee is in a world of pain and anguish and instantly regrets taking “advantage” of Q’s innocence and cruelly pushes her away. He rubs salt in the wound even further when he leaves town with nary a goodbye, finding fame and fortune as lead guitarist in the AutoCorrect band, only to crash and burn when the lifestyle catches up with him and he eventually hits rock bottom. Now he returns to their hometown of Port Clover six years later, clean and sober, hoping to right past wrongs and banish his demons once and for all. But when a tipsy Quinn comes home, strips off her clothes and slips between the sheets, only to find the boy who smashed her heart to smithereens sleeping in HER BED, to say sparks fly aplenty is an understatement! However, despite all the hurt and pain he inflicted on her and his loved ones, she can’t help but still be drawn to the devastatingly handsome Rock God who once starred in her every teenage fantasy! But can she allow Zee close enough to break her heart a second time—especially when a soul shattering revelation comes to light that threatens to implode all their worlds? MY MUSINGS: Gah! THE ANGST! THE PASSION! THE PATHOS! THE SCANDAL! THE LOVE AGAINST ALL ODDS! Holy eff…this book had it all!!! C.M. Seabrook excels at intertwining drama, tortuous push-pull, aching emotion and sizzling sensuality so seamlessly that you get a full bodied story with no shortcuts along the way! I just love me a tale of a broody bad boy hero whose heart is mended by the angelic good girl who's always been out of reach, and TORMENTED checked off all those boxes AND THEN SOME. This beautifully penned book hooked me from the wrenching prologue—and had me breathlessly turning the pages till the very end! The story is exquisitely crafted, chock full of swoony romance, palpable sexual tension, complex, multi layered characters and a gripping plotline that just RESONATES! I got so many heartachy feels, chills and goosebumps throughout and there were some shiver-inducing twists and turns that I never saw coming! I just adored this couple! You feel their soul-deep connection from the very start, and due to their rich backstory, Zee and Quinn have a ton of rooting value! I love the forbidden love setup of this story, where Zee, the gruff, ruggedly gorgeous black sheep town outcast, who has burned many bridges along the way, has to get through the heroine’s four fiercely overprotective older brothers in order to stake a claim on the girl who has always owned a piece of his tattered heart. But despite their sizzling chemistry, Zee comes with SO MUCH BAGGAGE and it’s anyone’s guess how he will be able to reconcile the past in order to embrace the future. My heart just BROKE for this poor guy who carried around so much guilt and regret and recrimination and feels unworthy of love. Especially an angelic beauty like Quinn who he knows deserves so much better than what he has to offer. But for some unfathomable reason she chose HIM! Quinn is probably my favorite CM Seabrook heroine to date: she is a sweet and loyal, feisty and fun-loving girl next door type with roots firmly planted in Port Clover. I love how she always puts family and friends above all else, and I ESPECIALLY adore how she fights for her man even at the expense of her own heart. I found the slow smolder between the MCs to be absolutely delicious! It takes them a while to finally give into their magnetic attraction but when these two finally surrender to temptation, you WILL. FEEL. THE. BURN! The sex scenes were not only incredibly tantalizing but infused with poignant, hearthrobbing emotion! I don’t want to delve too much into plot because there are some major bombshell revelations dropped along the way that are guaranteed to gut you, but at its core, TORMENT is a soul stirring story about fighting for love, AGAINST ALL ODDS, even when it hurts! However, even though this book has plenty of angst, I also found it fun and flirty, sweet and heartwarming. And I also thoroughly enjoyed the Port Clover small town vibe, where tongues are always wagging, and I thought the big boisterous St. James and Savage clans, who always band together in good times and bad, added oodles of juicy drama, and love and laughter, into the mix. BOTTOM LINE: TORMENT is another C.M. Seabrook masterpiece, and think it’s is a wonderful start to a stellar new series! I relished every single moment of this best friend’s little sister tale--I swooned. Sighed. Cried. Rejoiced. And, yup, the ending left me with a bit goofy smile on my face!

    Quinn had a crush on her big brother’s best friend since she was a young girl but Zee St. James knew that he would never be the man that would be good enough for her. Even after that kiss with Zee and he took off and he never returned back home until years later did she think she would ever have another chance with the man that owned her heart whether he liked it or not. Zee had lived a hard life since he left.

Even after that kiss with Zee and he took off and he never returned back home until years later did she think she would ever have another chance with the man that owned her heart whether he liked it or not. Zee had lived a hard life since he left. Making it big on the rock scene and nearly killing himself with all of the drugs and booze he could hoping to numb everything he had done in his life. After nearly dying and his stint in rehab it was time to come home and come clean with everyone he had wronged. It just happened that those people happened to be the most important people in his life were ones he betrayed. Quinn wanted to help Zee by helping him realize that it was time to stop running and fight for what was best. I loved this story because it was so well written that you felt the torment that Zee was going through and it had you hoping that Quinn would not be left yet again by a man she believed in. I’m already hooked on this series and can’t wait to read what Ms. Seabrook has in store for Kade. I received this book as an ARC for a freely given and honest review.

It definitely brought the story to life for me. -4 Stars-

Torment is the first book from the Savages and Saints series and I couldn't start it fast enough. This book tells the stories of Zee and Quinn. But let me just say that you need to read Wild Irish series, because despite they are all standalones this new series is a spin off from that one. Trust me. You won't regret it. Zee was always trouble. The day his father was buried he up and left his life behind. Drugs and booze left their mark in him and he hit rock bottom. Being in a famous band can be good but it can bring some bad stuff as well. After being sober for almost 1 year he decides to get back to his hometown. And now what?

She knew he was off limits being not only older but also because he was her older brother best friend. But we can't choose the one we fall in love to. After 6 years she's trying to get back on her feet trying to pay her debts and doing something with her life. Sweet lord... This book is something special. The plot is magnificent, engaging, intense, raw and so real. It's beautiful the way that this author could turn something so dark into something so amazing. The interation between the characters is raw, beautiful, intense. Jeez these two are stubborn as hell. He, because his demons keep hunting him and her because her love is stronger than everything. The story progressed in a way so beautiful, so heartfelt that I saw myself wanting to enter the book and hold them. Of course that we have some hilarious scenes that will make you laugh hard. Lol And guess what? The hot scenes are to die for. They are intense and super hot... Get ready... Oh C. M. You nailed it. This book is freaking amazing and I can't get enough of it. And guess?

    Great Book!! I’m new to this author as well as the narrators, what a great combination. I loved this story. The characters are genuine and storyline kept me intrigued. This is book 1 in this series and I’m super excited to read/listen to book 2. The narration was amazing and sexy. I would definitely recommend this book.

    I loved this book from start to finish! The chemistry between Quinn and Zee isall kinds of hot and electric and sexy, the dialogue comes across as natural, not all weird and stilted. The secondary characters (especially Lola, that girl is hilarious!) round out the story in a great way.

But he also knows th Quinn has loved Zee her whole life and despite the hurt and the six-year separation, she can't seem to shake her feelings. No man she dates can measure up, no man tears her up or torments her heart the same way. And when she finds him in her bed one night she can't deny that despite him making her crazy, she'd like to keep him there. Zee knows Quinn has had a crush on him for most of their lives and somewhere deep inside he knows that it's her adoration that lights his heart. But he also knows that the darkness eclipses everything and ruins everyone he touches. His penchant for running away is the only thing that can truly break her heart and he'll do it because the one thing he knows above all else is that he's unworthy of love. They've led a long life together but always on the periphery of one another. With the two families intricately connected it was inevitable, but what wasn't was the fallout after the St. James patriarch's death. Zee doesn't handle it well and his mistakes are all catching up with him. Even after six years of being gone there's nowhere else he can run without trying to make it up to everyone he's hurt. Except no matter how hard he tries he seems to only be successful at mucking it all up and then pulling a runner. If it weren't for Quinn he'd be out the door right away but there's something about her that keeps him there. He won't admit that he yearns for her but with her permission he'll give her all the passion she craves with the caveat that it can't be permanent. Quinn accepts because she'll take anything she can get from the man who could very easily become her whole world. I liked these people. Quinn was full of sass and stubborn as an ox but so very full of love. Through everything it's her love and willingness to see beyond the pain that makes me love her. She's immature at times but that kind of adds to her charm. Zee is such a martyr. But he doesn't even martyr well. He's full of self-loathing and a lot of it is with good reason. He needs a lot of help to work beyond all that to right his wrongs. I like him because he's redeemable and the way he is with Quinn when he's not being a prick is so tender and full of hope. I'm looking forward to seeing them on the periphery of the rest of the series. As the first coupling from these families they've brought together the Savages and Saints in a way that will provide fodder, angst, and incredible feels throughout the subsequent books. Willingly read and reviewed this ARC from the author.

    Torment is an angsty, brother's best friend romance. Quinn has been in love with her brother's best friend, Zee, for as long as she can remember. He's like a member of the family, but she sees him as something more, something she can't help but see him as. But, Zee thinks of her as his little sister. Or does he? Because he lays a serious kiss on her one night, then disappears for years. Until he comes back home and stirs all those feelings up in her again.

Because he lays a serious kiss on her one night, then disappears for years. Until he comes back home and stirs all those feelings up in her again. Feelings she doesn't want to still have, but doesn't really fight. I wanted to love Torment, but I just couldn't. I liked the premise, brother's best friend is so my thing, but I just couldn't get into the whole push and pull Zee put Quinn through. I'm afraid that I never felt their connection to be strong enough for Quinn to put herself through the torment of loving Zee. I knew she loved Zee, but I never felt it, and I definitely did not feel Zee's feelings. Sure, what they had is hot, but love? Not sure about that, at least not on Zee's part. I liked Quinn, but she was entirely too much of a doormat for Zee. And Zee was a dick. Not purposely, but still, he dicked Quinn around so much, and even when he knew he was hurting her, he didn't stop. His running away when things got tough got really old, really quickly. I felt bad for his inner torment, but I didn't like him and I didn't like the way he treated Quinn. Still, although I didn't connect with Quinn and Zee and their story, the world they inhabit is interesting and I'm looking forward to more of this series. At the very least, Quinn's brothers should be more entertaining than Quinn and Zee were. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

And, when a painful truth is unexpectedly exposed, will Quinn be able to forgive Zee? Oh, this was a sad one. So many hurtful mistakes were made. But, Quinn and Zee’s love was real. He just had a hard time accepting the fact that he was worthy and he could truly love her too. She loved him since like forever, and that wasn’t changing anytime soon. Their intense relationship just made for a pretty entertaining read. My first book by this author, and I look forward to more... And, that cover!!! WOW!!! Simply Gorgeous!!

    I love angsty books. I love the heart wrenching, soul crushing books that make me feel ALL the feelings. So when I come across books that seem to be just that I get excited, however in this case my excitement didn’t last long. Torment wasn’t a bad book but it wasn’t the angsty book I was expecting. I felt the author spent too much time on the buildup of the secrets that once it all came to light the reader already knew what to expect and the book ended up falling flat for me.

    Torment by CM Seabrook is the first standalone in her new Savages and Saints series which is a spinoff to the Wild Irish trilogy. In book 1, we see the workings of Quinn and her long standing unrequited love for her older brother Kade's best friend, Zee St. James.

In book 1, we see the workings of Quinn and her long standing unrequited love for her older brother Kade's best friend, Zee St. James. You know with a name like Zee St. James, he is definitely a hunk to be on the lookout for. There is more to Zee than his good looks. He has the tortured soul of an artist to go with those looks and Quinn has always loved Zee with those demons riding him. She knew he was trouble and she still relinquished her heart to him with all his demons knowing it would cost her in the end. Which we see when Zee up and leaves six years before and he didn’t even a goodbye. Now 6 years later, Zee has returned after he learned some shocking news. Plus this Zee is sober and is ready to fall on his sword. Which makes him even more delicious and hard to resist. Quinn knows somehow Zee will run again so she makes a point to get him into her bed. Not everyone is happy that Quinn is sticking her neck out there for Zee and she faces some heavy backlash for supporting him and helping him, including from her brothers. They do everything they can to warn her off but Quinn isn’t giving up on Zee when it looks like everyone else has. They had this push/pull to their relationship and I wondered would Zee ever prove his love for Quinn as she has toward Zee. There are several twists to the story which involved Zee’s past. Will Zee stick around and give Quinn and their love a chance or will he bail? Or will the secrets that Zee harbor implode their budding relationship with Quinn. This is an emotional, angsty, passionate read that kept me on my toes from start until the finish. Zee is one main character that I didn’t know if I wanted him to get his HEA or if I wanted him to just go but by the end of the book I definitely wanted him and Quinn, who is beautiful and amazing, to get their HEA. Only way to find out if that occurred is to read this story. This is a great start to the spin off from Wild Irish Trilogy and I look forward to reading more in this new series. My Rating: 4.7 stars ***** “I received an advanced copy of this book from the author at no cost to me."

I think I forgot how hard headed this girl is.... “I swear the man has been sent here from hell itself to torment me.” Quinn~ my life is ok. Nothing to write home about but I love my brothers and our friends. Problem is a certain someone ran away and broke my heart so many years ago and I can’t seem to find another guy like him. I just need one chance to show him he’s not the monster he thinks he is.... 💭My thoughts... Wow!! This book is so good. I love Zee. Yea he has some major issues and I think I wanted to kick his ass after Abbott did but I fell hard for that man. I see why Quinn did. Of course Quinn is a bad ass. Love her. Now after meeting Zee and then Liam. I totally want a book about Liam!!! And yes all of the Savage brothers!!! Kade that poor soul. I think my favorite part of the book was on the boat. Let me quote Lola here.... “Daddy asked Zee to come with us, but I told him you probably won’t be happy because you think he’s A-hole.” HAHAHAHA. This was priceless and exactly when she said it. I love this girl as well. She is a little mini Quinn. This author does a great job of building you up and keeping you on edge and then when you finally fall you fall hard. It was a great book, full of humor, angst, sadness, despair, charm, sexiness, anger and so many other emotions. This book had me all over the spectrum and I loved every minute of it!! **I received this book as an ARC and in return gave my honest review**

The first standalone in her new Savages and Saints series, a spinoff to the Wild Irish trilogy, we see the inner workings of Quinn and her long standing unrequited love for her older brother Kade's best friend, Zee St. James. Zee's soul is tortured, and the night of his father's funeral is the last night he stays before taking off without a word to anyone. He bears the weight of his mistakes heavily, but he can't run them for forever. A 6 year absence should have been enough time for Quinn to get over him, but he knows that the secrets he bears have the potential to ruin many lives. Quinn tries her best to stay away from the bad boy that has come back, but the chemistry and attraction between them is intense. No longer the young man she knew, the Zee that comes back to town is older, more tormented, and more broken than the man she stole a kiss from all those years ago. She knows there's something he's hiding, but she tries her best to see the good in him that not many people see. But will her love for the broken boy still burn brightly when all of the secrets he holds have the potential to implode their lives? Will he be strong enough to be the man that Quinn needs? You definitely need to one-click this book to find out! I was hooked from the minute I started this book all the way through the end. Chantel does a fantastic job at weaving complicated characters seamlessly in her story line and, oh my god, the angst! I got the feels throughout this book. Full of highs and lows, emotional twists and turns, you see the tight bonds between siblings and friends, and they are will developed. At times I wanted to slap both of them, but I love their story and the intensity of their relationship is so hot! Both Quinn and Zee are so lovable by themselves, but together, they are perfect. I don't want to give away too much of this story, but I would definitely check this book out!

    Torment is the first in the new series, Savages and Saints by that well known Irish writer C.M. Seabrook and you are in for a really great treat with this first book. Zee St. James was the local bad boy and Quinn's brother's best friend and she had had a crush on him for years but he never thought that he was good enough for her. After one mind blowing passionate kiss he left the next day without a word and broke her heart.

After one mind blowing passionate kiss he left the next day without a word and broke her heart. No words nothing directly to them but he was mentioned in the press as the bad boy of rock and he wasn't in a good place at all. After years of taking illegal drugs and alcohol he nearly died which was the wake up call he needed and so he got admitted to rehab and now he's back home.  His demons are still right with him but he's come home to try and put right what he did wrong and make peace.  Quinn still loves him [she is even living his apartment] and didn't expect him back. But now he's back she is determined to try to be his and she will have his back as he fights his demons. can her love overcome all adversities? Can she prove to him that he is good enough for her?  Will he admit he loves her too or is he going to waste this second chance of happiness?  Whilst this is the first book in the series, it is very easily read as a standalone and, I confess, that I am now waiting impatiently for book 2 as it was a really well written story and I thought Quinn and Zee were so good together. The attraction between them was palpable and the author drew me into this story so quickly and kept me rooting for them.  It will be interesting to see who will be the next two main protagonists in book 2, but I do hope that we get to see, or at least hear how Zee and Quinn are doing in their lives!I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a  review. Definitely recommended   !!  A Must Have Read!

He has screwed up in the past and he comes back to make mends and do the right thing. I loved how the story played out and it all unfolded, loved the way things ended too. I highly recommend this angst filled romance! C.M Seabrook thank you for this great story and the emotional rollercoaster ride. I listened to the Audible edition, Gunnar Qualen and Jenna St. Claire are wonderful narrators and voice performers. They bring the story to life, give each character their own voice and personality as well as heart and attitude. They are awesome at projecting the emotions of the characters and the drama of the story into their performance. Both are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧

Readers met Quinn in Taming Irish: A Rockstar Romance; the third book in the Wild Irish series while was visiting her cousin Makena. If you have not read this series then I highly recommend you do. Quinn has been in love with Zee since she was a child but having four brothers put a crimp in her dating life; not to mention, he was too old for her at the time. Zee has always been a bit of a wild child and growing up in a family with an abusive father did not help nor did suffering through a tragic loss at such a young age. He is plagued by feelings of extreme guilt and the poor decisions he made as a young man. However, he has returned home to make amends and set things right with those that he left behind. Quinn and her brother Kade have always given Zee the benefit of the doubt but will they be able to forgive him this time? This is one intense roller coaster ride that you do not want to stop. The chemistry between Quinn and Zee is hotter than a firecracker regardless of the six years that has passed between them. This is one definite must read to add to your bookshelf! I am looking forward to the next book in this series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Seabrook is passionate, emotional, and one of the best books you are going to dive into this year. I was completely lost within the pages and by the end, I was a mess. I just didn't want the story to end, I craved more. The characters are so easy to love and you'll feel like you're a part of the family while reading. Zee St. James is the epitome of men everywhere. I was drawn to his brooding, empty soul from the beginning. I knew there was more to him than he wanted to show, but once he does, he'll own every piece of your soul. My heart broke for Zee because of the turmoil he was putting himself through. Once he comes home to finally try and make amends, I was beyond happy. Zee and Quinn's pull and connection to one another is heartwarming, tender, and I love how they make each other whole. But can they get past all of the choices that were made and finally be together? You'll have to one click and find out on your own 😉 I am absolutely in love with this book and everything Zee. So bring on the next book because I am so ready to jump into another story with these characters. I give Torment by C.M. Seabrook 5 out of 5 STARS!
