  • Carrie
    After loving Lie to Me last year I knew that I had to pick up a copy of Tear Me Apart by J.T. Ellison and give it a read. Now after Tear Me Apart I might as well add J.T. Ellison to my short list of authors to just grab no questions asked.Mindy is an up and coming skier that the media is calling the next Lindsey Vonn who is in the process of trying out for the Olympic team when disaster strikes. At the last gate Mindy crashes and breaks her leg a...

    This book is just not my cup of hot chocolate. Mindy is a 17 year old skiing phenomenon when she breaks her leg during a downhill run. As a result of pre-surgery blood testing, Mindy and her parents discover that she has leukemia and ultimately are told that Mindy's mother is not her biological parent. GASP!!! I figured out without a doubt who Mindy's mother was on page 85 of 489 so that made it a long and tedious read for me. By the time the "ho...

    Wow... Tear Me Apart is quite the ride my friends. This is a fast paced mystery/thriller that will leave your neck sore from turning back and forth!I think it's best to go in blind with this one and avoid reading other people's reviews. The underlying story line is quite intriguing and has multiple layers to peel with this onion. Talk about years worth of lies and lies. Characterization is a definitely a strong point in this story. Each character...
  • Kim
    5+++ stars from me! I have read quite a bit of really good books this year and this is one of them. This is a book that is going to stay with me. I requested this ARC simply based on the fact that I really like the last two books I have read by this author. No One Knows and Lie to Me were 5 stars in my book. So I had pretty high expectations. What I didn't know is that she managed to exceed them. This is my favorite work so far by her. Mindy Wrig...

  • Dennis
    3.5/5 starsThis review will be short and sweet, because it's really one of those novels that you need to go in blind for (so don't read more than the synopsis, folks). In true JT Ellison fashion, Tear Me Apart is a wild ride, told by an author who is a master of her craft. Mindy Wright is an up and coming professional skier with the whole world ahead of her. She is on the verge of great success, with the possibility of joining the US Olympic te...
  • Jamie Rosenblit
    A unique thrill ride from start to finish - psychiatric hospitals, family secrets and professional skiing? How are these various stories connected over time? JT Ellison weaves a flawless integration that kept me wanting to know more the entire time! Down to the very last page, I was on the edge of my seat questioning what would happen next!Thank you to Harlequin for an advanced copy. All opinions are my own.

    There has not been an book by JT Ellison that I have not loved.....and Tear Me Apart did not disappoint at all. She is an author whose writing is emotional and honest and I can't get enough. This book made me cry, smile and think - it is a rollercoaster of emotions and I loved it!!Mindy Walker is a competitive skier, well on her way to representing the USA in the winter Olympics...until she crashes and breaks her leg. Whilst in surgery for her le...
  • Mackenzie - Traveling Sister
    What a tangled web of lies J. T. Ellison has created!!! The more I read the more shocked I became with the twisted trail of deception that was uncovered by a single incident. Ellison is a favorite author of mine, and I noticed she liked to play with the reader a bit. She doesn’t mind having flawed characters. In fact, Ellison’s work thrives on flawed characters! But her characters feel real because of that. They feel like they make mistakes, ...

    'Tear Me Apart' is the follow-up novel to 'Lie To Me' written by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author J.T. Ellison, and having loved 'Lie To Me' I was so excited to read this. It didn't disappoint!Mindy is a professional skier and superstar of tomorrow, who whilst on the slopes injures herself and is taken to hospital. But a broken bone is not the only thing they discover, she also has an aggressive form of Leukemia. Whilst the doctors...
  • Emily
    I loved reading Tear Me Apart! This book is full of drama, and it was exactly what I needed. I finished this book in two days (it's a bit longer than what I usually finish in two days), and it was totally worth it. Tear Me Apart is focused on a lot of family secrets and mysteries. If you are interested in DNA information (like the Golden State Killer case), I highly recommend picking up this book. There are some good twists and turns. I really en...

    I've said it numerous times on FB J.T. is my favorite female Mystery/Thriller writer and she continues to be with Tear Me Apart she hit it outta the park absolutely devoured this book thanks for the Arc
  • Sherri Thacker
    Tear Me Apart has so much to say about mental illness that may stay with me for awhile. It started off great, then kind of fell flat for me in the middle and I found myself getting a little confused between who was who but all of a sudden, I could not put the book down and realized this was such a great psychological thriller! Holy cow! 4 stars from me!

  • Chandra Claypool (wherethereadergrows)
    It's no secret that I'm a fan of J.T. Ellison. Her writing is addictive and her storytelling keeps you consistently picking the book up, turning page after page until you get all the answers. This book starts off strong - anything that includes a mental health facility and the characters within will immediately grab my attention. Then we get thrown into the present where we have the parents of a star skier watch her fall and get immediately taken...

  • Renee (itsbooktalk.com)
    I started this only knowing that it was about a competitive skier who crashes and finds out one shocking truth after another about her life. That's really all you need to know and I'd avoid reading lengthy reviews and any more of the blurb before diving in.The Suspense BuildsThe skier is Mindy Wright whose very attentive parents have devoted their entire lives to making sure she has every advantage in the ski world.

  • Marj Ward
    This might be J.T. Ellison's best book yet! Deserves more than 5 stars. This is a story about a 17 year old girl, Mindy, who lives for skiing and aims to be on the Olympic team. After a bad crash on the slopes, it is discovered she has leukaemia. She needs a cell stem transplant but neither of her parents are a match. Neither mother nor father is a biological parent. Lots of twists and turns but a book you won't want to put down. Another one hit ...

You cannot help but get sucked in as she goes through her pre-start ritual, and then takes off, only to end the race breaking her leg. As she is rushed to the hospital for surgery to repair it, Mindy learns she has an aggressive form of cancer, and needs a stem cell treatment to save her l...

    I have to admit the beginning was a bit slow for me, I thought for sure I wasn’t going to like this book. However, the book took a turn and I absolutely loved this book !The subject of Mental Health in this book is a very important one, and reading the Author’s note at the end of the book made me love the book even more ! Mental health is extremely important to talk about and I’m so glad that it is becoming less taboo, because of book like ...
  • Katie
    I enjoyed how Ellison’s second psychological thriller Tear Me Apart provides a glimpse into the world of Olympic level competitive skiing as well as a glimpse into life on an adolescent psychiatric unit. However, I found it awkward going back and forth between the stories as they were tied together and new plot lines were revealed. It reminded me a little of television shows like Law & Order that try to cram in multiple plot lines into one hour...
