Torn Together by Emlyn Chand Giveaway (for you) and Eye Candy (for me)


So Wow. My bud Emlyn Chand (she let’s me call her Em), wrote a book called Torn Together.  It’s a love story, of sorts that will make you laugh, cry, and smash up things.

What’s that? What’s all the smashing things up bit? Well, I’d tell you, but then I’d be a SPOILER and I hate that, so I won’t tell you that bit.  What I will tell you, however, is that our heroine, Daly (pronounced tally) is a young woman struggling to figure out her life: her boyfriend dumps her, she’s struggling to get a portfolio together for an art school application, and her mom is as distant as a stranger.

Lucky for us Daly meets a young Indian fellow named Kashi Malhotra.  Chand describes Kashi as a man with buttery, sandy skin. Kashi has a sense of humor and a positive outlook on life that benefits Daly.  Here’s how I pictured Kashi in my mind’s eye:


This is Ravi Patel.  Thanks to IMDB for introducing me to him.  Our Kashi would have longer hair which would bring out his curls, but I imagine his face to be friendly like this guy.

I had to chose this guy here:

Sunil Malhotrra

Simply because his last name is Malhotra.  He ain’t to hard on the eyes, either.  You’re welcome for the eye candy.

While we’re on the subject of India, lets talk about its food, huh? Much Indian food is consumed in Torn Together and my mouth watered the whole time.  One of the yummy meals featured is palak paneer.

Palak Paneer contains dairy, so it’s not something I can eat, but although I consider myself a gourmand, I’ve not tasted it, but anything that has curry in it is OK with me! I especially love my naan; which I eat with honey in the morning with my coffee.

So now I’ve filled your eyes and your belly, let’s fill your wallet, eh? Read below for how that’s gonna happen:
