*Each book can be read as a STANDALONE—although the overall dark, enthralling beauty is best to be enjoyed in order. But be careful; your mind may be too sane to comprehend the madness.*

"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."
Everything I knew, everything I had, everything I was, had disappeared. This was my reality.
Three years ago, Deanna Madden locked herself away—in a run down apartment on floor 6, room E. She hasn't stepped foot outside since, too afraid her wicked thoughts would take control of her mind...and possess her body do terrible, bloody, deathly deeds.
To stifle those desires, Deanna organizes a perfectly controlled environment—one without sharp objects except those locked deep in the dark of her safe and devoid of human contact except the voice of her psychiatrist, the virtual-sex she has with her clients, and the oh-so tempting UPS man who knocks on her steel door so the danger she threatens to unleash on society is contained.
"That’s the reason I stay away from people. Because I want to kill. Constantly. It’s almost all I think about."
But then temptation pushes open the door to 6E, with a bulging...er...package in his tight UPS uniformed-pants and box cutters in his hand...
...very shiny, very sharp, box cutters.
And as Deanna tries to control all the desires ravishing her mind, body, and soul—kisskillfightkisskillfight—her job in the adult industry as a sex-camgirl lures her out of her prison with the promise of blood on her hands...
"Disappointment in others is tough. But disappointment in yourself is far worse. I’m not expecting others to disappoint me. No—I am my own dream killer."
“The first shrink I had said I have anthropophobia, which is fear of human interaction. Anthropophobia, mixed with an unhealthy dose of dacnomania, which is obsession with murder.”
Deanna Madden is unlike any heroine I've ever read. Her mind goes beyond rationality, beyond the confines of normality...and to read that unique breed of strength and wickedness, makes for a hellofva page-turner.
Meanwhile, the Hero of this story—Jeremy; Mr. UPS Temptation—is the opposite of Deanna in all ways; he is light, where she is dark, he is truth, where she is lies, he is normal, while she is not. Although I thought it was tragically beautiful how Jeremy was Deanna's secret hearts desire. He gave her hope, fed her desires in the best and worst of ways.
“Maybe there is a chance for happiness after all, despite my online slutdom and psychopathic urges.”
"He thinks I am weak. He thinks he can manipulate me and subdue me. Kill me. He has no idea that my small frame and delicate features contain an evil that rivals his own. I finger the knife in my pocket and fight to keep a grin off my face. This is it. This is my time.”
The plot itself was just...wow. Gripping. Compelling. Killer-crazy intense. It made for a journey that was everything and more: suspenseful, shocking, heartbreaking, and hopeful.
And A.R. Torre's writing was stunning; her grip onto he heroine's mind so strong you couldn't help but think all the macabre, sensual thoughts along with Deanna. That, along with the book's multiple POVs, really gave the story an unparalleled dynamic that had me gritting my teeth as I turned the pages for moremoremoreMORE.
“Hope, in general, is dangerous. Hope can be the loose thread that pulls apart your sanity.”
Because overall, The Girl in 6E captivated my thoughts and emotions, twisted and turned them into something gruesome and ugly—something I was enthralled to keep reading—while thrusting me me into a dark, erotic world, where a beauty with a wicked mind, broken heart, and ravaged soul, hides among the madness of death and desire.

AS AMAZING AS ALICE'S DREAMS: ☆☆☆☆☆

Once the story put me on the edge of my seat I couldn't put it down. Not even close to what I normally read, but it was chosen by my book club and since I was familiar with the author's style and enjoyed her previous books I joined in the 'fun'.
Note: There's nothing funny about this book. It's written beautifully and there's angst throughout. Not for the faint at heart, and different doesn't begin to describe this story. When I realized there was a child involved I cursed myself for signing up for the 'fun', but I have to say it was worth every agonizing moment.
The book does not end in a cliffhanger so may be read as a standalone even though there are more books available. Once I get up the courage and read a few lighthearted books I'll be sure to jump in again. Deanna Madden is one crazy character.
Much of the book is spent setting up the life of Jessica, how she lives without going outside, who her clients are, and her daily routine. For about the first half of the book, I was intrigued but wondering where in the world the book was going...until you get there. What happens when Jessica's little world is set askew by an AMBER alert. You become accustom the Jessica's world, how she lives, why she does what she does. You become unreasonably comfortable with the way things are and then you along with Jessica are abruptly forced to face many of the things that you have been hiding from.
This book is probably not for everyone, as it was pretty crazy. It's only erotic in sense of description and Jessica's choice of career. The book itself is more of a psycho-erotic thriller. I am cannot wait to find out where the sequel is going to go, because while you are not left hanging, Jessica's story is clearly not over.
And even though I had this book sitting on my shelf for months, I just didn't know if I wanted to read it. It sounded so different from what she normally wrote. I didn't want to "not" like something she had written.
Finally after not being able to take not knowing what I was missing I dove in.
Holy CRAP!!! This book was amazing!!
Was it different? YES!
That is what I loved about it. I have since then read it several more times. And look forward to this story continuing!
