4.5 What a thrilling ride on the crazy train stars!

I had no idea going into this book that it would be such a wild ride! Vince Taplin takes crazy to a whole new level with Alex and I was here for every obsessive, stalkerish, sexually deviant, psychopathic second. ⁣

Alex has fallen hard for Vick and she is willing to do anything to make him hers. She is wealthy, powerful, attractive and unwilling to let anyone or anything stand in her way. ⁣

Alex is one scary woman which means I absolutely loved

Not only did I loved this book, but I absolutely devoured it and couldn’t put it down.

Although it was more sexual then I expected it to be this book was still INSANELY good!

I never expected the writing to be so good with all its craziness in between.

I truly think Taplin did a profound job of creating these characters. Each person seemed so believably real despite being bat-sit crazy.

I HIGHLY recommend this book to all my thriller friends out there to read ASAP!

I also apologize if you never loo

Wow! Alex Six was definitely a shocking and intense roller-coaster ride! The story reads super fast paced, my eyes were glued to the pages! It flows with a very catchy narrative which is focused mainly on the plot and not on descriptive settings, the author writes straight to the point!

The story is told in two different point of views, from Alex, a rich psychopath stalker that will do everything and anything to get what she wants, and Victor Miller, a married ordinary guy that is very unfortuna

Wow, what a wild ride! I loved everything about this book! It was creepy and so intriguing that I couldn’t put it down. Short chapters are always a plus in my book too! The roles are definitely reversed in this one! Read it and you’ll know what I mean. Will be recommending this book to others! Can’t wait to read more from this author!

There is a saying, if an offer seems too good to be true, it probably is - and it's this saying that suits the circumstances Vick finds himself in to an absolute tee.

Vick is an Afghanistan vet, working hard doing all the repairs on his rental properties, and living a full and satisfying life with wife Kraya and a new baby. When Vick crosses paths with a beautiful stranger (Alex) he is offered the 'opportunity' to help her fulfil her wish to be a parent, following the timely death of her husband

Is there a price when it comes to loyalty? How about a price when my comes to getting what you want?

When Alexa’s husband tragically dies, all her hopes of having a baby die with him. When she runs into his doppelgänger, Vick Miller, an unhealthy obsession begins. She wants a baby, she wants it to be Vick’s, and she’ll do and pay anything to make that happen.

This book grabs you right from the beginning. By page 5 my thoughts were “oh shit.” I ended up stopping another book I was reading fo

Where to begin?!? This book was an insane wild ride! I went in not knowing much about it and I think that was the perfect way!  

Alexa is wealthy, attractive, powerful, and utterly obsessed with Vick who looks like her late husband. I’d also add a freakin psycho!  

Vick is a simple man who works hard to provide for his wife and son. But he has a weakness for money and Alexa has the money he needs.  

Alexa wants Vicks genes and pays him quite well for his donations. But she wants more and will go

This wickedly intense psychological thriller by Vince Taplin was an absolutely wild ride. ⁣⁣
Once I started this book I wasn’t able to put it down, I needed to know what was going on and who exactly knew what! This was a one sitting read for me. Written in a sort of stream of conscious style, Taplin puts the reader right into the center of the drama in a way that had me cringing and gasping out loud. ⁣⁣
The characters weren’t lovable, warm, or encouraging, but instead they were selfish and gri

This book was so fast paced, I could have easily read this in a day or two, but life happens! My social calendar (bachelorette parties, bridal showers, trainings for back to school, life events, etc) and the duration it took ME to read this book is not a reflection of how I feel towards this book.

❤️ This was such a page turner and a quick read! I loved the short chapters and the suspense. I enjoyed the different POVs and how one was present tense and the other was in past tense. I didn’t see th

What a ride. No direct spoilers are mentioned in this review but I do describe the whole story.

This book is a psychological mindfuck. Once you get into it, you will not want to put it down. You will be riding along with Vick just wondering what will happen next and how this will end until the last cringe worthy line.

Quick summary: Alex finds a near identical twin to her late husband and will offer him any amount of money for him to father a child for her, no strings attached. Vick is just a no

Thank you Vince Lee Taplin for my copy in exchange for my honest review!

My latest indie author read was Alex Six. This thriller is about a guy who is kind of a jerk named Vick. Okay he's just a little misogynistic and shallow at times, but I found him entertaining. Vick is living a pretty normal life until he meets Alex. Alex is a wealthy, beautiful woman who claims Vick is a doppelgänger for her deceased husband. Logically, she tells him she will pay him a small fortune for his "seed" to give h

Everyone. Drop what you're doing and go buy this book. You will not regret it.I can't think of the last book that I would stop reading just to tell my fiance was new, crazy, fucked up thing just happened. And then when I was done, I told him that he's going to have to read it too so that we can talk about it... Even after I've spoiled all of the surprises.
Speaking of surprises. Oh my goodness. This book is packed with twists and turns. The reader has some insight into what is happening a little

Seriously one of the best books I've read in a long time. Keeps you engaged, creeped-out, laughing in places and once you reach 80%, there is literally no stopping. This author will become one of my favorites, guaranteed. Get to publishing, dude. And... that poor vanilla bottle.

Okay, Indie's get a recipe from movies to help anyone who might need convincing.

Thank you so much Vince Taplin for sending me a copy of “Alex Six” to review! This book is available now and readers will definitely want to grab a copy!

“Alex Six” is INSANE and I mean that in the best way possible. From start to finish there was never a slow moment in this book. It started with a bang and ended with one that was equally as crazy!

What a fast-paced read! I literally could not put this book down and when I had to stop (because you know, life) I couldn’t wait to pick it up again.

The story was told mainly through Vick’s POV but we also got Alex’s as well. I really liked how Alex’s POV was recalling some of same events but we got to see inside her head. It made everything much more creepy because Alex is so good at hiding what she is really thinking.

Alex took stalking to different level. She will literally do anything it tak

Wow.. I am not sure how to put my review into words for Alex Six. I devoured this story! I am really glad I took the time to read this one. It was addictive, wild, sexy and thrilling. What more could you want in a book?!

What I liked:
-short chapters
-told from two POVs
-unexpected twists - which as we know, are my favorite
-Taplin's writing style
-rich & shallow characters

Alex Six does not disappoint. Expect the unexpected. If you are a thriller reader, you need to read this.

This book was a great read. It is a quick paced read with short chapters. In the beginning it’s a bit confusing but once you get about 12 chapters in you see the pattern. The book has an excellent plot and kept me wanting to read quickly to find out what happens next.

This novel took me for a ride and what a surprise it was! From the very first page to the end, this book kept my attention. I read it all in one sitting! It was not at all what I expected it would be after reading the blurb. This novel is told in both Vick's and Alexa's POV which I appreciated. To be able to read from Alexa's POV really helped to understand her obsessive and compulsive behavior. I was not the biggest fan of Vick but he did redeem himself at the end. This was very much a plot dri ...more

Guys... I read this entire book in one day. I know some of you read like 15 books a day but this is wild for me 😂🤪 I don’t think I’ve done that since high school but I literally COULD. NOT. PUT. IT. DOWN.

I feel like this book was like the tv show ‘You’ on steroids. 🤯😳

It’s weird because I did dislike the main characters but I also didn’t HATE them, even though Vick is such a typical man in all of the bad ways (white lies are still lies yo) 😤🙄 and Alexa is totally bonkers, Vince did such a great

I’ve seen the book Alex Six floating around on Instagram for a while and decided to grab it while I could!

Vick, who loves his wife and his child, works hard for his family (but could definitely use some extra cash), is approached with a deal he finds hard to refuse..

When super wealthy Alex runs into Vick at a grocery store, she’s blown away by how much he looks like her late husband. All she wants is a baby that resembles her husband and Vick might just be the ticket to that dream.

If you haven't read this yet, what are you waiting for? It's thriller season! It's the perfect twisty, edge of your seat read that you won't be able to put down. Just when I thought I had it all figured out- wrong. It's definitely a psychological thriller with an interesting noir twist. I loved Taplin's writing style and will definitely read more of his work!

This book was right up my alley and I loved every second of it.

Alex Six lost her husband before they were able to have a child. When she sees Vick in the grocery store, she can’t believe how much he looks like her late husband, and becomes determined to pay him for a sperm sample. Vick has to decide how much money is worth betraying his wife. The book takes a sinister turn when Alex’s true motives become apparent and deadly.
