Enter a world equal parts Dexter and 50 Shades in this first, award winning erotic thriller from A.R. Torre!My life is simple, as long as I follow the rules. 1. Don't leave the apartment. 2. Never let anyone in. 3. Don't kill anyone. I've obeyed these rules for three years. But rules were made to be broken.
I’m not sure what it is with Alessandra because I swear I can’t find a common thread in her books that makes me know that she is the author of all of them. Each book is complete unique and has a different voice, something you expect from Oscar winner actors. Hell, something maybe only 1% of those who have an Oscar can do.
I’m going to tell you that of all the books books Torre has written, The Girl in 6E is my least favorite. I don’t know why. I just wasn’t feeling it and that’s okay. Thousands of other women where, and it won several awards, and it deserved to win.
I decided to give it another go. I’m at a different spot in my mind. Who knows? I didn’t go back and read the other two books, because you can read If You Dare by A.R. Torre as a standalone, but you will find the series much more satisfying if you read all 3 of them together. Being as I’m in the book world, I kept close tabs on Torre’s work and knew what they were all about, so I went ahead and read book 3, and I enjoyed myself.
I was caught off guard how long the book was. Reading on a Kindle, I have no concept how long a book is. I just kept looking at my % thinking, crap, I haven’t gotten very far.
As for the 4 stars I’m giving the book, it’s because I knew how it was going to end. I feel let down when I know how books are going to end and they actually end that way, especially with Torre’s books. I beam with pride that she can shock the hell out of me. That is a huge selling point of her books for me. I thought for sure there was going to be this amazing plot twist. I was waiting for it. Waiting. Waiting. Then nothing. Ugh. Taps mic. Hello? Alessandra. Minus one star. Others who read the book may feel like it is a huge plot twist, but I didn’t. I’ve become really good at reading foreshadowing and picking up on hints left by authors since I read so much, so maybe it’s me?
I know if you have like the previous two books, you’re going to love the final book, If You Dare. You still get lots of crazy Deanna moments. Lots of, “did she really just do that or think that moments?” And a couple of her friends play a little bigger roles in this last book than in prior books. All-in-all, you’re going to love it, If You Dare to read it, that is.
