Became a tech billionaire by his twentieth birthday. Has been in a relationship with me for 3 years.
Has proposed 4 times. Been rejected 4 times.
Cuts grass when he’s not banging housewives. Good with his hands, his mouth, and his cock. Has been pursued relentlessly by me for almost 2 years, whether he knows it or not.
Go ahead. Judge me. You have no idea what my love entails.
If you think you’ve heard this story before, trust me – you haven’t.

Rating: ★★★★★

I have been a fan of Alessandra form the start. Her spin on hot and kinky yet exceptionally well crafted stories will leave you on the edge of your seat. 

“Love isn’t about being happy. Be single and be happy. Love is about putting him, his sanity, his happiness, first. If you aren’t willing to do that then you aren’t really in love.” 

Layana is not your normal girl and that goes for her love life as well. Brant and Lee. Two men. Two different worlds within Layana’s and even though she loves them both it impossible for her to make a choice. 

“I love you. Every dark and light piece of you.”

I have to say that Black Lies is one of my top reads this year. What you need to know is that every ounce of the hype is true. This book has flipped the conventional love story on its ass. Alessandra has created a world of complex relationships all while keeping you engaged and questioning everything you thought you knew about love stories. 

“I loved this man. With my whole heart. I needed him. He completed me.”

The story’s angst pulls at you and the love stories will rock you to the core. What lines are you willing to cross for love? To keep it? To hold on to your own happiness? Alessandra’s character and story development are incredible. All leading too, in my opinion, her best book yet.

The Secrets out…

the girl in 6E

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.

About Alessandra:
Alessandra Torre is an exciting new author who astonished the publishing world with the success of her first novel, Blindfolded Innocence. Initially self-published, the intriguing romance and erotica title quickly rose to the top of the charts on Kindle and Amazon where it attracted the interest of major publishing houses. Currently available on Kindle, iBookstore and Nook, Blindfolded Innocence will be available in print in through Harlequin Publishing in late 2013.
Torre’s captivating story about a young intern’s sexual awakening has won praise and rave reviews from numerous critics, bloggers and book reviewers, including the acclaimed Dr. Laura Berman. In her recent article “35 to Read After 50″ in Everyday Health, Dr. Berman recommended Blindfolded as a must-read for book enthusiasts searching for a new fix after Fifty Shades of Grey. The book has also received high marks from readers on Goodreads and other literary web sites where fans frequently remark they can’t wait for a Blindfolded sequel.
Momentarily stunned by the book’s rapid success, Torre resumed her daily writing routine and is excited about a new thriller, The Girl in 6E, that is scheduled for release on April 17 as well as a sequel to Blindfolded later this year. Her only setbacks seem to be when publishers or online booksellers reject her books’ titles or cover art for being “too sexual” or steamy for the general public. In such instances, Torre gamely changes a title or cover art just as long as the content remains the same.
“One of my books was actually banned for a few weeks,” she said. “I was a little shocked because I thought there were a lot more suggestive, overly-sexual titles than mine and certainly a lot more covers that pushed the envelope. But at the end of the day, it may have generated a lot of curiosity and interest in my books, so I’m not complaining.”
From her home near the warm waters of the Emerald Coast in Florida, she devotes several hours each day to various writing projects and interacting with her fans on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Happily married to her “best friend” and with one son, she loves watching SEC football games, horseback riding, reading and watching movies.
