Pure Torture
by Tania Sparks
My rating: 3,5 of 5 stars

Hmm, where to start with this story. There were parts that I really enjoyed, like how Cody and Kitty learned to be with each other and how their relationship progressed, especially at that tragic time that hit the whole group pretty hard. But unfortunatelly there were also parts that I didn’t like, like not at all. I despise any drug abuse and the way groupies are steriotyped. I don’t care if the character is not actually using drugs or they simply are in the room where those dang drugs are, I just don’t care about that. I only care that the reader knows there are present and being used by some individual in that story. I feel really unconfortable reading about that, since we all know that young readers read books like this one and therefore it’s not cool or alright to expose them to that. That’s my personal opinion but you may have your own that varies from mine. That being said, I have many mixed feelings about the story.

I didn’t read the previous two books in this series but I didn’t feel like I had to do that in order to understand this story. We get to see all the charcters in previous books and I really got to like them. They are fun and each personality brings something new to the whole picture. I especially loved Kitty’s dad and I felt for him and Kitty’s family when tragedy hit their lives.

I also liked Kitty’s character. She was fun and smart and didn’t let others bring her down. She knew her worth, what she wanted and she went for it. Also, she was someone you could really rely on. Just a girl with a big heart. Hers and Cody’s chamistry was off the charts, they were like fireworks but fireworks made from dynamite. Sure hot, super explosive and at times, super dangerous.

And as for Cody, at first I really didn’t like him but then he started to grown on me. He really cared about Kitty and I loved that he fought for what he thought was right for them. BUT that one stunt, on Christmas, man, all that good just washed away. I mean seriously, you’d have to be brain dead or one serious asshole to pull that off. You don’t bring a groupie/self proclaimed girlfriend to Kitty’s family dinner and then say she means nothing to you and she just tagged along. Like, SERIOUSLY!!! WTF! And it’s the first Christmas after that tragedy. What an idiot…

So, as already said, that’s why I have so many mixed feelings about this story. It’s a good book but those stunts…just unnecessary and not welcome. The epilogue is why I gave this story the exctra half star, since it was really cute and just what the story needed. A nice closure that leaves room for the next story.
