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.
Erotic Thriller. A genre I thought I would never read. And yet, I’ve been hearing so many good things about this one that I just had the urge to pick it up. And I’m SO glad I did, it was the perfect book for me to read right now, with exams taking up 99% of my brain space.
The Girl in 6E is a story about a girl who locks herself up in an apartment – apartment 6E – because she has thoughts of murdering people and cannot control her urges. In order to make enough money, she has become a cam girl, and a very popular one at that.
It’s definitely a very interesting premise and one of those books that just fly by; many readers would probably be able to read it in a day. I was always looking forward to picking it up and once I did I found I didn’t want to stop. I was thoroughly engrossed and entertained all the way through. Also, I really liked the main character and enjoyed reading from her point of view.
Despite the fact that I enjoyed this book so much, I couldn’t give it a higher rating because besides entertainment value, it didn’t offer me much else. It became repetitive after a while and there wasn’t much more to the story than the immediate plot line. I wish mental health would have been explored more, though maybe the author will get deeper into that in the second book in the series. Also, I didn’t like the buddying-sort-of romance present; the guy seemed flat and I found that part of the story to be quite unnecessary.
Overall however, I full-heartedly recommend this book to all kinds of readers (even if you think erotica isn’t your thing, it’s not my thing either), especially if you need something quick and easy to get you out of a reading slump. Be warned however, that this book contains both graphic sex and violence and that child molestation comes into play. So if either of these make you uncomfortable or are triggers, stay away.
