REVIEW and GIVEAWAY: The Girl in 6E by Alessandra Torre

"I screw men for money. Not literally, think phone sex operator with a 15 megapixel web cam thrown in. They tell me their deepest, darkest fantasies while paying me $6.99 a minute.

What would possess me to engage in such a business? Throw in a tortured past, 24/7 murderous thoughts, and a desire to keep the innocent people of my small town safe.

I was contained, out of the way, sexcamming my way to utter obscurity until HE came along. A twisted client armed with a target's name. Annie. And in that name, everything changed."

I freaking loved this book! I can't tell you how excited I was when I was finished and thought I can't wait to tell everyone about this story!  It is so different than most of what is out there!  (yes, all of the exclamation points are very necessary)  Don't let the blurb scare you.  I was fine with it, but I can see how for some it may seem a bit much.  Just trust me on this one and read it! The psychotic and psychological part of, The Girl in 6E, was dark and interesting.  You hear of these people with strange fetishes that spend all of their money on phone/internet sex but do you ever wonder why they do this?  What got them to this point?  Well, Alessandra Torre gives you a view into this world.  Also, did I expect Jessica to have psychoses as well?  No!  But holy shit does she have issues.

"My secret, my obsession is worse than any of theirs.  To contain it, I do the only thing I can.  I lock myself up.  And in doing so, keep myself, and everyone else, safe."

 The sex-camming is really only one small piece of a very large puzzle. (A very lucrative piece, for sure)  Jessica is very smart and super observant due to the lifestyle she has chosen to live.  She has managed to keep resources at hand.  Such as, online food ordering, a hacker friend/client, a medical professional, an understanding yet curious delivery man and an addict neighbor.  All of these people are critical to Jessica's existence and the way she manipulates them was genius!

This book is written in several different POVs, which kept it interesting and surprising.  I never wanted to put it down while I was reading it.  The story takes an amazing turn that had my stomach in knots, my brow perspiring and biting my nails. I really don't want to give anything away so you'll just have to read it to find out.  I was even in tears at a couple of parts. This dark and suspenseful book knocked my socks off!  Seriously!  I'm so excited for Alessandra Torre and all of the amazing fans she is going to get after they read this!

When there is evil in someone, it grows, unattended by all and fielded by its harborer. I know this; I feel it, each and every day, growing stronger inside of me ‘til one day—snap—it will take over control and every logical thought process, every thought of survival and preservation will disappear, and I will be a loose cannon, fired and on my path of destruction, with nothing but my own doom ahead of me, and the demise of whomever lay in my final path.

RalphMA35 hasn't snapped yet. But I can see his path as clearly as I can see my own. And it is coming. His demented evil was growing, and I am undoubtedly fanning the flame. I promise you, that is not my intention. My intention is only to save her.
