Release Day and Review: Do Not Disturb by A.R. Torre
It's release day for A.R. Torre's secong book in the Deanna Madden Series. Stay tuned for my 5 star review. But, first, I am going to give you my review for The Girl in 6E first!!!
I haven't touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.
I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.
They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide... my lust for blood, my love of death.
Taking their money is easy. Keeping all these secrets... one is bound to escape.
What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl's life depending on you venturing into society?
Enter a world of lies, thrills, fears, and all desires, in this original thriller from A. R. Torre.
I am not sure where to start with this review... I have put off reading this for some unknown reason. I hadn't read anything of Alessandra's before. So I didn't know what to expect. When the opportunity came to read Do Not Disturb (the second book in this series), I jumped on it. I am surely kicking myself for not reading this sooner!
If you follow my reviews, I tend to like the dark reads so much more than anything else! These twisted and demented books are what gets my blood pumping and my mind distracted from everything else around me. I devour them.
The Girl in 6E is one of those dark, twisted and original books that you won't be able to put it down. I was so intrigued by the main character, Deanna. She is a unique and very resourceful character. You won't come across another like her.
Deanna has shut herself off from the rest of the world. She is not only protecting herself by doing so, but she believes that she is protecting the public also. She has to fight the urge daily to know kill someone. She believes she is sick in the head. She believes that she was born to murder everyone.
In order to support herself, Deanna has become a cam girl. An honest living, right? Well it is one that has allowed her to re-invent herself and never leave her apartment. Then, the unthinkable happens... She has no choice. In order to save someone, she must leave her sanctuary for the first time in years. She must also kill. She knows what needs to be done.
Jeremy... Deanna's UPS delivery guy. He is intrigued by this woman he has regularly delivered packages to for years. He has never seen her. He wants to see her. He wants to know who she is. Why does she hide? Then, that fateful day comes. He sees her. Meets her. Now he wants more.
This book is so different and twisted. It is dark in just the right way. Alessandra really won me over with this book. If you haven't read this book, trust me, you really should. It is one of those books that will leave you with a hangover for weeks! It is so brilliant and written full of skill. This is one of my top picks.... of all time!
Click below to purchase this book:
1. Don't leave the apartment.
2. Never let anyone in.
3. Don't kill anyone.
The rules were simple and I broke them.
Now I must face the consequences.
Everyone else must face me.
I want to start off saying that this is not one of those books you put off. You must buy it and read it right away. (*You need to read The Girl in 6E first. This is a chronological series.) I am not one to read books in a series back-to-back. I tend to get bored. I need a break in-between books of the same series. This series is so much different than other series. I was more than enthralled with both books!
This one picks up where the last one left off... We have Deanna and Jeremy. However, now they have met face to face. They both are itching to have more encounters with one another. Deanna is doing her best to go back to business as usual, while Jeremy is trying so hard to get her back out of her apartment.
Business as usual... Not really. Deanna has tasted blood again. She has reintroduced herself to the world. She wants more... of all of it... But she mustn't. She must go back to her daily routine. But temptation is hard to resist.
Camming is a world of its own. Deanna comes in "contact" with so many different walks of life. She has learned to read them. She knows how to handle the crazies. Or does she?
Marcus. Psychopath. Obsessed with tracking down the one woman who has turned him down and make her pay.... by any means necessary.
This book is a cat and mouse game with all of the characters from Deanna to Jeremy to Marcus to her therapists to her hacker/friend.... It's all a tangled web that is threatening to untangle.
I don't think I can give this piece of genius enough praise. It is in a league of it's own. I am just hoping that I will get more of the twisted world of Deanna Madden. I crave more of her demented and heart-pounding story. I want more blood. I want more, period!
