Publisher's Summary

Modern-day pirates took more than Jori Virtanen's friends; they stole his face. Not only does the 24-year-old former model have to confront months of reconstructive surgery, he discovers his previous life was as superficial as his looks. Jori struggles to make a new life for himself as an artist while evading the press. They expect a hero, but he knows the truth. His beauty masks a beast.
Olivia Howard's given up a normal life for her job, and the sacrifices are finally paying off. The 26-year-old talk-show host's ratings are heading to the top of the charts. Her dream is to make a difference in people's lives, but the studio wants mind fluff-like interviewing hot model Jori Virtanen. When Olivia learns the guy helped rescue passengers on a cruise excursion from kidnappers, she knows this is the story she needs to make her case. The only problem is the hero was injured, and now he's disappeared.
The more Olivia learns about the man behind the scar, the more intrigued she becomes. But Jori is no girl's happily ever after. Once she finds him, Olivia has to free his heart and help heal the beast.

Tristan Hunt is Jori

What about Tristan Hunt’s performance did you like?

I read this book first and really enjoyed it but then had the opportunity to listen to it. I wasn't sure at first about the reader and thought his voice might have been a little over dramatic but I quickly found it engaging and slightly haunting and a great voice for Jori's deep internal struggles. It really became exactly the voice I would imagine for Jori through his struggle, opening up and eventual triumph. As much as I enjoyed reading this book, I enjoyed it even more the second time while listening.

Great story, excellent reader

I enjoyed this book and found it engaging from the first pages. The pacing was comfortable, the narrator Tristan Hunt's reading and voice easy on the ears. I especially liked the way he acted out each character's voice. The story unfolded comfortably, no rushing, no lagging. Although full of many relationships and subplots, it was easy to follow and to become engrossed in the characters. The hero, Jori, was well developed, as were the other main characters: Elle, Anna, and Olivia. I particularly enjoyed the characterization of Anna, Jori's elderly landlady, mentor, and benefactress. Torn Canvas is an excellent read, especially when listening. I'm grateful the author gifted me a copy in exchange for an honest review, and look forward to reading her other work.
