***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?

My heart broke for Logan. The nice and sweet guys are always the ones who suffer. Logan's life wasn't easy. It started when he was younger and never understood the reason why his mother did the things she did. He never truly understood what it felt like to love someone and get the same thing in return.
Once he went to college, it was Chloe, Amber and himself together for the long haul. They were best friends and truly loved each other. Chloe and Logan was so much more than just best friends, or so he thought. His world was turned inside out and it didn't make him stronger, it broke him down. Logan is by far my favorite thus far in this story. Although I truly understand why things happened the way they did, I wanted to pain to be placed on someone else.
Jade was very sweet but lonely person. Her life growing up wasn't the best and she suffered more than anyone should. After she left her home, she became friends with Adam, Drake and Eric. They were the family she didn't have and needed to live. When she met Logan, it was instant attraction but she kept everything to herself. It took both of them years to finally admit something could happen. Is the baggage each of them carriers too much for them to handle? Is Logan strong enough to let the past go and move on? Time can only tell.

I raised an eyebrow. “Why are you so determined to make sure that Jade and I end up together?”
“Because I want you both to be happy, and after all of this sorted out, I think you two could be really happy with each other. You both care a lot about each other. I’ve never seen Jade act the way she did when Drake called her. She was really upset. And you’ve been Mopey McMoperpants since you came home. It’s obvious that you’re both miserable without one another.”
“Do you really think that we’d be happy together? Honestly, I’m not so sure. I don’t exactly fit in with the rest of her world.”
“Why do you think that?”
“She’s a rock star, Chloe, and I’m just…I’m not into that scene. I don’t like the same things you guys do. I don’t look like any of the other guys she hangs out with. I’m not pierced or tattooed. I’m not…I don’t know what the fuck I’m trying to say here.”
Chloe started to say something, but Drake cut her off, “Look, Logan, I’ve known Jade for a long time. I’ve watched her get hit on by tons of guys, and she’s never paid attention to any of them. She didn’t care that they were part of our scene. Truthfully, most of the guys we hang out with are womanizing assholes.”
True story,” Chloe cut in, giving Drake a dirty look.
“Hey, I haven’t been that way in a long time. Don’t glare at me like that. Anyway, my point is, just because she lives a certain way and has a certain profession doesn’t mean that she’s going to want a certain type of guy. She obviously likes you, so just go with it.”
He’s right. Don’t doubt yourself because you two have different lives. You’re a good-looking guy, Logan. You don’t need tattoos or piercings for girls to notice you. Jade obviously likes you just the way you are.”
“I feel like I should pull the car over, so we can all hug. This is getting awkward,” Drake muttered.
Chloe laughed. “Don’t be jealous, Drake. I think you’re a goodlooking guy, too.”
He rolled his eyes. “Thanks. I feel much more secure about our marriage now that you’ve admitted you’re attracted to me.
