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 dist

★★★★! The Girl in 6E (book 1). A captivating, suspenseful & soul-searching journey for a reclusive heroine with secrets!

“They believe what they see, because they want to believe. They want to believe that I am normal. And for the brief moments I am with them, I fool myself into thinking the same thing.”

The Girl in 6E is another clever and brilliantly told story courtesy Alessandra Torre. It’s best dived into therefore my review will be very vague.

Erotic Suspense. Two words one would probably NEVER associate with me, yet I adored this book! It was incredibly fast-paced, and just as twisted as any Gillian Flynn book. Highly highly highly recommend.

This beautiful quote, for me, sums up the emotion of Girl in 6E. The words touch my heart, show me the beauty, the sadness and the eloquence of the writing.

I was excited, but also a little nervous going into this read, I knew it wasn't my normal kind of book; at times the gruesome nature of it made me want to squint at the words, look away..... Some of the subject matter is uncomfortably rotten, but in

review of the whole series

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.

Aj the Ravenous Reader

This is me fulfilling my promise to read a book with lots of blood and deaths and believe me this book has those things AND MORE- things that made me choke harder than the sight of blood and gore. This book annihilated what is little left of my innocence and if you want to keep your innocence intact, I suggest you stay away from this book. Lol.

This is probably what I looked like during the first half of the story.

Sooooo I think all those that know me- or those who THINK they know me (over the last week...Yes, you- HATERS included- heheheheeeeee)- know, I am NOT a big fan of erotica.

Nope, not a fan of erotica at all- NOT one little bit.

...but I will say- I didn't hate this book- and the person that put THE GIRL IN 6E on my radar- I looooooove immensely... Richelle, my darling. Yes, I <3 you- sooooo I put my feelings of erotica aside, and I will review this book accordingly.

The Girl in 6E is an intriguing, suspenseful read. The story of a 21 year old shut-in who spends her days and nights as a 'Cam girl' and lets just say business is good in the virtual world of sex. But with Deanna there is more than meets the eye. Deanna has locked herself away from others because she is afraid, if given the chance, she will not be able to resist her dark desires. Her mind is constantly plagued with an overwhelming desire to kill, for blood to flow.

This was SO GOOD! I had a few issues with the first half of the book where the character would repeat things that she'd already told us and there were super random chapters that were shoved in to give her backstory that didn't flow with the rest of the story, but when I got halfway through, I couldn't put the book down. I was SO hooked and I just had to know what happened! I can't wait to continue on with the series!

One thing changed my mind. One darn thing.

When I first finished The Girl in 6E, I honestly thought I was going to rate higher than where I ended up. At first, I was thinking something between 3 and 4 stars because I'd been entertained. But I sat on my thoughts for a moment and waited to review, which lead me to realize that my initial feelings about the entertainment value of the story were not balancing out my feelings about some of the unresolved character issues at the end of the book.

Alessandra is an exceptional author, I was completely blown away by this series.

We have a Girl with a penchant for knives and *cough* blood, a geeky hacker, a mailman, and a deliciously swoony psychiatrist. Between the lot of them, this non-stop suspense will have you gasping long after the last page.

Don't miss this series. Deanna is a badass.

In a quick scan of other reviews I see I'm maybe the only guy writing a review. Almost all others were penned by women, many of whom (I note) have written reviews of novels in the "erotica" genre, a type I've not yet read. While my gender and heterosexuality lend no extra credence to my review, the combo may provide a potential reader at least a different perspective.

“To the people I cam with, I am JessReilly19, a bubbly nineteen-year-old college student – a hospitality major – who enjoys pop music, underage drinking, and shopping. None of them really know the true me. I am who they want me to be, and they like it like that. So do I. Knowing the real me would be a bit of a buzzkill. The real me is Deanna Madden, whose mother killed her entire family, then committed suicide.”

This is a book I've been meaning to read for years, so many of my book friends recommended it to me. I loved the concept of the book and how it sounded, but the execution...... not so much.

The two great things about this book are the concept and Torre's writing. My god, Torre is an amazing writer. She has a way with words unlike any other author I have seen in this genre. My problem with the book lay mostly with my own personal tastes, and the fact that the majority of the book just see

“No one is normal. Everyone is just pretending to be normal.”

This is the story of a prostitute who never had sex, a story with sexual fetishes but no human contact, a story of murder obsession with no bloodshed. This is the story of Deanna and her life in the apartment 6E.

Erotic Thriller. A genre I thought I would never read. And yet, I've been hearing so many good things about this one that I just had the urge to pick it up. And I'm SO glad I did, it was the perfect book for me to read right now, with exams taking up 99% of my brain space.

Interesting concept. Execution...



not so much.

DNF 60%

The writing felt forced, dialogue was sparse with pages and pages of inner monologues, and nothing happens for pretty much 50% of the story. The Girl in 6E is supposed to be a dark thriller and it only got the first half right. You get a lot about her internet sexcpades, homicidal tendencies, and not much else.

Having read some of Alessandra Torre’s brilliant books such as Sex, Love, Repeat and Hollywood Dirt and a few more, I was eager to read The Girl in 6E, written under her pseudonym, A.R. Torre and even more eager after reading so many glowing reviews by many Goodreads friends.

The Girl in 6E, the 1st book in the Deanna Madden Trilogy, is nothing like the books I have read by this author. This is not a love and romantic love story. Quite the opposite!!
