Drugs and abuse are two elements in a relationship that Sam Mason can no longer tolerate from his boyfriend Tony. Fortunately, Justin Quick comes to Sam’s rescue before the verbal clash turned physical.

Torn is a view into life changes. Some changes are beyond our control and other changes we choose to make. The plot illustrates toxic relationships, as well as the modifications Sam and his best friend Caleb made to ensure their survival. Torn is listed as a ménage featuring Sam, Caleb and Justin however, the actual main romantic relationship is between Sam and Justin. The overall storyline is realistic, the characters are creditable.

Justin is an attorney who comes from old money but does not have the snobbish attitude associated with the wealthy.

Sam and Caleb are both fiercely independent with strict morals. Being homeless for a time during their teen years, Sam and Caleb chose to work honest jobs rather than accept a hand out from anyone. 

Torn is an impressive and enjoyable saga. The engaging characters are heartwarming. I could almost envision the destructive predicaments they dealt with.
