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.

The Girl in 6E banner

The Girl in 6E is incredibly unique, so props to A.R. Torre (Alessandra Torre’s pseudonym) for creativity alone. Talk about an edgy thriller!

Deanna is one complicated character. She’s brazen, resourceful, super smart, and totally scary in her obsession with murder. The book takes you deep into the world of camming—video cyber sex—and I found it to be both creepy and fascinating. I learned a lot about what it takes to be a successful Cam Girl. Who knew it could be so lucrative? Nice to have that bit of knowledge. You know, in case I want to save up for my kids’ college tuition. Kidding. Sort of.

The reader learns about Deanna’s traumatic past early on. We’re fed bits and pieces through flashbacks, but I kept wanting to know more. When we finally delve into the main event? It’s. Worth. The. Wait. I never fully understood Deanna’s psychotic compulsions, though. I’m sure there’s more to the story.

The plot is made more compelling thanks to a few other intriguing characters. Jeremy is the UPS guy. I accepted his fascination with Deanna, but his relationship with her is on the crazy side. To each his own.

The first part of the story drags in places due to repetition. However, the pacing picks up halfway through and so did my heart rate. It’s a heady rush to the end.

The story isn’t wrapped up in a neat little bow, but I like that the ending can be left to the reader’s imagination. The next book, Do Not Disturb, continues the story, so it’s nice to have the option to learn more about Deanna’s future—and perhaps her past. I have no idea how much story is left to be told, but I’m curious enough to read on.

Review ♥ How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours by Sara Ney

Review ♥ How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours by Sara Ney

I really enjoyed this college rom-com. How to Date a Douchebag: The Studying Hours is the first sports romance I’ve read about wrestlers. Personally, I’ve never been a fan of wrestling. Big sweaty guys, grabbing each other in headlocks like elementary kids in a playground fight, rolling around on mats, and pinning each other down? Meh. And those unitard thingies they wear? I don’t care how much junk they show, they just aren’t sexy to me. I guess I’m in the minority because all the girls on campus get lady boners over the wrestlers. They must have a really sucky football team or something. Who knows? So yeah. The wrestlers are a big deal at this college and, apparently, the majority of them are big douche canoes.

New Release! Review & Giveaway ♥ Unconventional by Isabel Love

New Release! Review & Giveaway ♥ Unconventional by Isabel Love

Excuse me while I dunk my entire body in ice water. First things first: heed the author’s warning. Unconventional is beyond steamy; it’s like the Disneyland of erotica. If you’re looking for something extremely dirty to read, you will enjoy this kinky thrill ride. You impatient bad girls out there—and you know who you are—don’t even have to wait until you’re halfway through the book to get to the “good parts.” Things get naughty in chapter one and only heat up from there.

Blog Tour & Review ♥ Two is a Lie by Pam Godwin

Blog Tour & Review ♥ Two is a Lie by Pam Godwin

Two is a Lie is the second book in the Tangled Lies trilogy, and Pam Godwin mic drops the hell out this turbulent story. I thought the love triangle was fairly easy to handle in the first book, but apparently that was just foreplay. Two is a Lie is like Kryptonite to angst junkies, and only three things got me through this book: ranting on social media, lots of red wine, and a bottle of Tums. True story.
