Blog Tour - Toxic by K.A. Robinson

Title: Toxic
Series: Torn #4
Author: K A Robinson
Release Date: May 19, 2014

***Toxic: Logan's Story is Book Four of the Torn Series, but it can be read as a standalone if desired.***
True love is forever. After years of chasing his best friend, Chloe, Logan finally managed to win her heart—or so he thought. His world crashes down around him when she confesses to cheating on him with a local rock star, Drake. Unable to let her go completely from his life, Logan reassumes his role of best friend while he watches Chloe find her happily ever after with another man. Each day, he sinks further and further into his depression, and the kind, caring Logan he once was dies. When Jade, a member of Drake’s band, inserts herself into his life, Logan never expects to fall for her. He’s too broken, too damaged.

Jade ran away from home when she was seventeen, desperate to escape her abusive stepfather and her controlling boyfriend, Mikey. The only regret she has is that she left behind her little sister, Bethaney. When Jade’s band, Breaking the Hunger, hits it big, she vows to go back to her hometown not only to reconnect with her little sister, but also to show her stepfather that she’s not worthless like he said.

The moment Jade saw Logan, she knew she wanted him. Unfortunately, he was with Chloe at the time. After his world falls apart, Jade steps in to comfort him, determined to bring back the Logan she once knew.

Sometimes, you find true love with the person you never least expect. Can Logan and Jade heal each other? Or will they forever be changed by their toxic pasts?

5 Toxic Stars!
I am beyond happy to say that I absolutely adored reading Logan’s story! I have to admit that Logan was not a favorite character of mine in the Torn series, Drake and Chloe’s story, and that there times in those books where I just thought he was pitiful and just couldn’t get over things. I also thought he was a pushover. And those characteristics do not make an attractive guy.

But here in Toxic, it really is Logan’s story. We get a sneak peek of how he was feeling and what he was thinking during the times when he and Chloe were just friends and when Chloe broke his heart. KA Robinson made me understand Logan much better and I’ve slowly grown a strong admiration and fondness for him.
Logan is a sensitive, loving, and thoughtful guy. Not just as a friend but as a lover. When he loves, he loves with all his heart, he puts everything out there for the love of his and that is something we don’t always read about. Sure, there are those alpha, hot males that we all swoon and drool over, but Logan feels like someone we know in our personal life. He is a realistic character. He got hurt and he’s insecure and I feel for him because KA didn’t hold back in writing his story. We get the whole details and feel all of Logan’s, and even Jade’s, emotions.

Jade is such a brave, independent character. She stood by Logan when he needed a friend, she understood him and didn’t judge him when he was all but wallowing in heartbreak and self-pity. I like that although she is attracted to Logan, she didn’t take any bullshit from him, she refused to be a rebound but still showed her gentle and caring side when she remained friends with Logan.

Their relationship is a heartwarming journey of two people carrying past hurts who formed a friendship and found strength, love, and support from each other. It’s a truthful telling of a friends-to-lovers romance. It’s a touching read and I’m fortunate that I got to join Logan and Jade in their wonderful story.

Stars: 5 stars!
Recommended to: Rockstar second chance readers.
POV: First person. Dual POV.
Series: Yes. But standalone.
Cliffhanger: No.
EXTRA COMMENT: I’m greedy, I want a longer Epilogue. Toxic has a good one and we still get to see Drake and Chloe too!

I love K.A's writing, and am so glad to finally get Logan's HEA!  My heart absolutely broke for him in Torn and watching him get his HEA was heart warming.  Jade's story was heart breaking and the way she wrote two people that were so completely broken and came together and healed each other was amazing.  Their story isn't pretty but it turns into something beautiful.  I love how different Logan and Jade were and how well they fit together.  Way to go on another amazing book K.A, can't wait for the next!!!
