I really enjoyed reading gritty Torment by Aleya Michelle,
Torment is all about Willow and Hunter and their destructive addiction to hard drugs. Both willow and Hunter have been through events that lead them down the path to drugs, Willow witnessed the brutal murder of her mother at the age of 8 and also the trauma of being placed in several foster homes. Hunter's brother Alex died, both Alex and Hunter were inseparable together so Hunter is devastated.
Hunter and Willow both battle with their addictions in rehab, neither are even remotely looking for love or a deep connection but that's exactly what they find in each other.
Torment was a no hold back, hard hitting look at what addiction does and how it destructive it can be but also how love can turn you around. As usual the writing is brilliant and keeps you wanting more and more from this author. I can't wait to see what Aleya Michelle writes next.
