A billion-dollar fashion empire, and it’s about to be mine…

I've worked a decade for this. I've sold my soul and my reputation. I've lived a lie, smiled for the cameras, and hated myself, all for this inheritance.

And then … she pops up. A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my—

The atmosphere in the car is changing. Maybe it’s the alcohol, maybe it’s the fact that I’m exhausted and lonely and delusional, but whatever it is, she’s now resting her weight on the armrest between us. Her legs are crossed, and when she occasionally bounces her foot, it brushes against my leg. We’re three shots down, and I can feel the edges of my control diluting.

Is it a mistake to bring her to Spring Lake? Absol

HIDDEN SEAMS: is a standalone romance novel by Alessandra Torre. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Marco and Avery.

I’ve only read one other by this author but have always had it in the back of my mind to read more of her books so when I saw this come up for review I jumped on it and I am so freaking glad I did.

Marco Lent is such a complex confusing man, is he straight? Is he gay? What’s his real story? Marco has many layers to him and like the concept of peeling ba

Going into this book, I had read a few reviews, so I thought I knew what to expect. I should know that I shouldn’t always think I know...... I do know that when reading this author, you can know you will get exceptional writing. And I got passion. And a lot of sexiness. And amazing writing.

This story begins over 10 years earlier showing us how Marco made a deal that would forever change his life. Did I like the agreement??? Not necessarily. Did I understand it completely? I still have question

I had such a hard time to get into this story and if it weren't Alessandra Torre's book, I would have DNF'ed it already.

The problem is, up until page 83 of a novel that is itself 283 pages long, the hero and the heroine DO NOT MEET!

The hero does his thing, the heroine does her thing.

We learn a lot about their very unusual lives. However, they do not meet for a long while; they do not even live in the same state.

Well, being the romance lover I am, I got impatient. But thank God I didn't drop th

Whenever I am writing a review for Alessandra Torre, I am Challenged... Challenged because part of the draw in reading Torre is discovering everything as it is presented.

We know from the blurb, Marco Lent has been part of the fashion industry. He was a new young designer who was driven with ambition. He had talent but all that anyone saw was his appearance. Handsome and chiseled, he was tired of being told he should model not design.

This my Taste of Romance book for Aug ..... Lord I’m so behind on my books!!!!!

This also new author for me… Oh this is stand-alone…

I just love enemies to lover’s book. I also loved how easy you might relate to either one of these characters. Both are likable characters. I love the many layers that each chapter uncovers… Marco & Avery’s story was a true rollercoaster from the very beginning until the end.

As soon as I read the blurb for this book, I knew I would be hooked.

I absolutely loved watching Marco and Avery fall in love. I love the transformation that he went through. Two completely different souls from different worlds brought together under most unusual circumstances and with that came banter and so much sexual tension but best of all, love! I thought both their voices were authentic. I really liked the fact that I could get Marco's perspective on the developing romance as well as Avery

Hidden Seams was a brilliant story with many different sides to it. The main focus was, of course, the romance between Marco and Avery but then there was also the part of Avery trying to find out who she was, and Marco's struggle to keep his best friends secret. it all came together really well and that was my best part of the story for me.

It's sounds crazy to say but these characters were better together because it was like they came alive with all of the chemistry between them. Separately they

Alessandra Torre is an exceptional author. Every single time she releases anything she always surprises her readers with something new but always in her unique style and touches. Her book blurbs draw me in every time and Hidden Seams was no exception. Again, Alessandra delivered an outstanding piece of writing that had my attention 100% of the time and made me laugh, swoon and feel.

When I pick up a book by Alessandra Torre, I usually just go in blind. Mainly because she’s one of those authors who never gives me the same thing twice. I feel like there’s no point comparing her new work with the older, because it won’t compare. It will stand on its own. Which is what I did with Hidden Seams, went in blind, and I can happily say it did not disappoint.

What happens when a billion-dollar fashion empire, a man who's sold his soul and a beautiful girl in combat boots with a sassy mouth come together? We get, ‘Hidden Seams,’ a gorgeous, sexy and totally unique romantic read by Alessandra Torre who executes this fabulous story with her usual eloquent style and a touch of writing perfection. It's everything I didn't expect yet everything I wanted. A story that took me away to a fictional world of opulence and extravagance lightly juxtaposed with the

Hidden Seams was such a fun read, with amazing characters. I was in love with Avery from the start, she intrigued me so much and I just couldn't get enough of her. Alessandra writes the best characters, and she does an incredible job in hooking you into the story. I liked Marco as well, but not as much because he was awful a couple of times. There were a couple of scenes where I wanted to hit him for acting that way, and making Avery mad/sad. Howe

What’s better than seeing the fashion world from a different perspective ? Being in that world and having a rival to rival ALL rivals! There’s this saying: you want something sexy, go to a lingerie store, you want drama and passion? Read a good book. “Hidden Seams” gave you a taste of everything: money, power, greed, scandal, and one heck of a runway.

Overall Opinion: This was a unique story and I appreciated that. I just feel like there was so much else going on that the connection between the mcs felt lacking. I got the lust for sure -- but the progression into stronger feelings not so much. I have more wins than fails for this author so I'll continue reading her works, but it definitely wasn't my favorite of hers.

I've always enjoyed Alessandra Torre's books but I was a bit shocked that not many of my Goodreads friends have read this story. That's always a confusing sign for me but I decided to take the chance and I'm so glad I did.

Ten years ago, Marco was a fledgling fashion designer and he took a deal offered to him by an older, much more established and successful designer to be his pretend gay partner. And for the most part, things worked out. Unfortunately, there were two issues...Marco is d

Like I ve stated in my reading status post, this story had an interesting concept, I didn't really know nor did I expect a 'certain' direction of unraveling of the plot.

At first, I believed it would be a drama, then I figured it didn't 'deal' with the subject in the 'serious' way for it to be an actual drama....then, it was a romance, and well, Alessandra knows how to write a steamy romance, but it still wasn't believable enough nor emotionally deep enough for me to consider both characters wort

I thought I knew what to expect in Hidden Seams going in, but if I've learned anything about Alessandra Torre over the years, it's that she's a master manipulator where her readers are concerned. She's brilliant at creating a story that is both captivating and confusing. She pushes boundaries and stretches the limits of one's comfort more and more with each new book. She toys with her readers, luring them in one direction only to halt them in their tracks with twisted revelations, with shocking ...more

There is nothing better than reading a book that hits major points ......unique storyline, sassy/quick banter, friends to enemies to lovers, hot and sexy romance, intrigue and an epilogue. Hidden Seams was all that and more.

What I found so refreshing was the ease at which this story read. Marco Lent, the sexy, beautiful, sex on a stick man that seems to have it all until he doesn’t. Avery McKenna the spit fire, fierce, beautiful woman who needs to find her truth. Written in dual POVs, the reader

DNF @ 55%.
I’m a huge Torre fan so it hurts to dnf this. I tried but I’m just not feeling this one for some reason. The storyline itself is good and it seems promising but I feel zero connection between the characters. Something is missing and I can’t put my finger on it. Maybe I’ll give it a try again someday but for now it’s going on the unfinished shelf😒😔

Bookphenomena (Micky)
Torre writes in multiple genres and I thought this was one of her quick, hot contemporary romances and it was, but with unusual circumstances and characterisation that set it apart a little from her others in this genre. As a result of this twist on circumstances, I enjoyed this more than I expected, especially the first 70% of the book.

HIDDEN SEAMS explores family separated, searching and found alongside a connection that just shouldn’t ‘be’. Marco is an impossibly beautiful man and therefore u
I really didn’t like the hero, but I still give this book 4 stars, that’s say something about the quality of this story, isn’t it?

I wouldn’t say the heroine safe the story, the hero with his unlikeable character made this story interesting too.

I don’t know what to say about his agreement with his dead partner, a clever move? Grabbed it when’s it offer or a man without a moral and do absolutely everything to be on top of the game?
You should judge by yourself after reading this book.

This book was SO much fun to read... and completely unexpected in such a good way. I have read a couple of Alessandra Torre books and she really excels at writing different types of stories, really showcasing her ability to write just about anything and everything.
Hidden Seams is a story of love, family, some lies and a whole lot of intrigue.

I'm 💯 sure this one will be optioned for a movie, very soon. The story is so involving, I couldn't leave reading it ! Written so well, with a lot of research, I raced through it and disappointed that it ended too soon. I want more of Avery McKenna/Horace's adorable attempts to seduce Marco Lent, the very Gay other half of Vince Horace and I also want more of their roaring fire of a chemistry. Wow ! Just Wow!

This one was a reasonable read but in the end I didn't really *love* it. Not Alessandra Torre's best IMO. I have really liked some of her books, but others have been a bit of a let down for me. As a writer Ms Torre feels a little inconsistent/unpredictable in the quality of her books. But because I have liked some of them, I'll probably keep on buying them LOL.

The storyline of this one is a little unusual. Marco is a high-profile, model gorgeous man whom the world believes to be the gay lover of
