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?
“Thinking about a return to society is as dangerous as holding on to that scrapbook. Hope, in general, is dangerous. Hope can be the loose thread that pulls apart your sanity.”
Okay, I’m impressed. I honestly thought I wasn’t going to like this book as much as I did, because sometimes I hype books in my head and when I actually read them, I’m a bit disappointed. And I thought it was going to be the case with this particular one, but I have to say I flew through it and I really enjoyed it.
This is the second book I’ve read by Alessandra Torre and now I can say she knows how to write a dark and sexy books. I think all of her novels have a dark undertone and story with some erotic scenes, but I was surprised by both of her books so far, because I wanted more.
“Sometimes you open the door and find out that it’s a big ornate sexy door to an empty closet. Maybe the only thing you’re interested is in the mystery, and you’ll find yourself bored with what’s inside.”
To be completely honest, the first 100 pages don’t really have a plot. That part of the book was more focused on Deanna’s life, what she did in her apartment and why couldn’t she leave it, and those deep urges she had to kill someone if she, indeed, went out. It explored the different parts of her personality and her job.
But Deanna was fastinating, guys. She was a character with so many layers, that had a very tragic backstory that made her a bit recluse herself inside an apartment. She was a super interesting character to read from, and she was kind of a walking contradiction herself, because thought herself as a murderer, and of course she did some nasty things, there were other times where you could see a different part of herself that had nothing to do with that “killer”. And I loved that, because in my opinion, it made the character more realistic and vulnerable.
I also love the side characters and the whole romance. I don’t know, it all was really odd and unique, but it was really fun to read about those character. The love interest was adorable (if we could referred to him as that), and I loved the interactions he had with out main character.
“I hate my former self; hate her selfishness andher lack of appreciation for her perfect suburban life. I had everything in the palm of my perfect, lazy hand and didn’t even realize it.”
Once the whole story started to developed, you started to know more about what was really happening. I wouldn’t say this book was a mystery, because you already knew who the murderer was from the beginning, but it was a great thriller. It made me want to continue reading until the very end, and it had some twists and turns as the end was closer.
And let me tell you: it was a very fast paced book. I read it in one sitting, and usually it takes me about a day to finish a novel, but that wasn’t the case with this one. I think I finished it in about three hours, so if you’re looking for a quick thriller story, I’ve got your back.
I would say if you don’t like explicit sex scenes or feel unconfortable with erotic books, maybe you should probably stay away from this one, but if you don’t mind them I totally recommend it, because it was amazing.
