I was happy in my small town. In my life as a single, thirty-two year old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence.

I also hadn't got laid in three years. Hadn't been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and wearing makeup... a while ago.

Then Brett Jacobs waltzed in. Caressed my thigh, dug rough fingers into my hair, lowered his soft mouth to m

★★★★★! Tight (stand-alone). A mind-blowing one-night-stand looks to become a promising romance, until it touches on the darker sides of life!

Tight (stand-alone) opens up to small-town financial advisor Riley Johnson who while on a weekend bachelorette party in Bahamas encounters the mysterious Brett Jacobs and does something reckless to break the status quo and shake loose.

WOAH!!! This was easily one of the most ADDICTIVE books I've read. It kept me guessing the whole way through. I was so sure that I'd figured out the big twist, but then the ending surprised me yet again!! I absolutely love it when a book can do that. It's a true sign of really great writing!

I read the whole book, cover to cover, in one sitting. I was just literally glued to my kindle all afternoon, unable to stop flipping pages. The story is simultaneou

TIGHT is a truly courageous story of hope, strength and love.

The ingredients of the story, when all mixed together have an air of mystery and intrigue….. My mind was working overtime whilst reading this new standalone story by Alessandra Torre.

I read Still in the BEND anthology last year. I was happy to hear Alessandra was writing a full length novel about Riley and Brett, the characters in that novella. I felt like they had a great connection, some amazing chemistry and I couldn’t wait to see where their story went. Let me tell you… I never, and I mean NEVER saw it going in this direction! That’s the thing about Alessandra Torre. You never know what direction she will take with a story. I love that about her books!

[1 star for the writing. Half a star because at times I did like Riley]

My rating is pretty self-explanatory – this book didn’t work for me at all. I’ve read a few books from this author and while I do like her writing, I feel like her approach seems to focus more on making a statement with big plot twists rather than on actual story and character development. Because once again, Tight is a book centering around one plot twist that was a mindfuck fail for me. In addition, the ‘suspense’

I will begin by saying that I go into almost all my books blind. I like to be surprised and guessing. I definitely go into all of Alessandra Torre’s books blind. For two reasons: 1) I 100% trust that whatever she writes I want to read and will enjoy, and 2) I know that regardless of what I think it is, it is always something different. So I started this one the other night and after about 2 minutes of reading I am messaging a friend and going back to read the blurb. Yeah, it didn’t

The word 'tight' has twenty-two definitions, but my favorite is Webster's fifth- "A bond which cannot be broken."

It breaks my heart a little to write this review, considering that I haven't rated any of Alessandra's books anything below a solid 4 stars. She's an auto-buy author for me, and will continue to be. While this book didn't quite work for me, I do still enjoy her writing style and story telling ability immensely. She's a true talent and I really love her work. Unfortu

I will not be long on this because this is one ot those books that the less you know before jump in, the better.
This is the story of Riley and Brett, they met in party and then beings their path towards love. Brett has a past and he has secrets. Riley is decided to find out what he hides.
But some secrets are safer if they are ever discover. This a story full of secrets, deception, fear, hope and unconditionally love. Grab some popcorn and get yourself ready for a crazy ride.

"The word 'tight' has twenty-two definitions, but my favorite is Webster's fifth - "a bond which cannot be broken."


This is a fast paced story that a reader doesn’t have to read Still before jumping in since that portion of the story is incorporated in this book. I just loved the pace. I really liked Reilly and I loved her home town. I also liked the mystery aspect around Kitten. Did anyone think to mention to the author to use a different sex slave name?

Lately I feel like I'm going against the majority with my take on recent books. I really have loved the books I've read by Alessandra Torre in the past, but for whatever reasons, I just never connected with this story.

I felt there was "insta-love" as Brett was saying "I love you", after a few dates with Riley. The constant switch up from the past, to the present chapters titled "Kitten", and then the Brett POV chapters, left me confused at t

What is it about books with warnings?


I love them!!! They push us and make us squirm in our seats. Warnings give us a sense of unforeseen danger ahead. And, at the very least, we know something is about to happen.

Early on in the story the reader gets an inclination on the direction this story is headed. But the majority of the book is told from the heroine’s pov and that creates a mistrust in the reader's thought process. The heroine becomes crazy with suspension t

I'm gonna keep this review simple and short, mainly because I believe this book is one that you should go in blindly and only take the blurb with you. The joy about picking up an AT book is that I know I can go in expecting one thing and be smacked on the face with an entirely different thing in the end. Sadly, this was not the case for me this round.

Last year a group of very talented writers decided to do a project together. Each brought an idea to the table and the Bend Anthology was born.

All of the pieces were compelling, fresh and have led to more from works by the authors...

I love books that completely captivates my imagination, pushes boundaries and doesn’t do the typical romance stuff. TIGHT by Alessandra Torre was one of those books for me. Simply, one word to describe this book is BRILLIANT. There are books that you love and then there are books that you love with a passion that leaves you reeling from a total book hangover and TIGHT was one of those books.

Alessandra Torre is a go to author for me, I will ALWAYS ALWAYS stop anything to dive into her books, and that is exactly what I did here. This story has a different feel to it and it will push your buttons slightly yet still there will be no doubt where your going as a reader, enjoy it cherish it devour it.

So like many others, I read Still. The novella that was part of the Bend Anthology (which was subsequently banned). I was so excited that these two characters weren’t just going to end up being a handful of pages, that we’d get full length novel. I was ready for it. I wanted him to take their one night in paradise and sweep her off her feet. I thought I knew this story. I didn’t.

The cover of this book says: "This is not a story about servitude. This is a story about strength." And it is so true. This is not the typical love story. As many of you know, Alessandra Torre is fabulous at that. I was hooked from the first page to the last one: let's see why ;)

I will start with my bias statement- Any book that is written by Alessandra Torre is one that will affect me and move be beyond physical reason.'s a book of Strength no doubt. It is also a book of Resilience, Love, Fortitude and Hope. It is also a Mind Trip of course, one that has Mystery and takes many Twist and Turns.

Like many, from when I first read Still, I wanted Brett and Riley's story that instant but I waited patiently. I don't say this often but it was well worth the wait.

Alessandra Torre had me from the very first page with her note:
"This book is a bit different than my others. It doesn’t follow quite the same formula. It will take you to some edges, but I don’t push you over. Promise.
