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. (Goodreads)
This book blew me away. Every blurb is 100% correct. This book is an experience. Deanna has locked herself in apartment 6E. She’s been there for three years. She has had absolutely zero human contact in that time. What she has done is order everything single thing she needs to survive online and has it delivered. She has also maintained a lucrative camgirl job. If you don’t know what a camgirl is it’s basically a girl or woman who poses for a webcam. They perform for the internet through live webcam footage. This is an erotic thriller so yes it goes there. I mean it really goes there. Deanna’s clients are quite interesting and they are described in full detail. But that’s not all there is to the story. In fact, that’s not the reason she has sequestered herself in her apartment. The reason? She fantasizes about killing people. She has killed before and she fears if she is living amongst the general population she will kill again, and again, and again.
Each client of Deanna’s becomes a character of sorts. Most clients Deanna can handle, but there’s one that has always stood out as a little extra odd. This client breaks the rules and expects Deanna to become Anna, a young girl. Too young. The more Deanna digs up about this client the more she worries that Anna is real and that somehow she must save her. But how is she supposed to do that without leaving her apartment?
If you can handle a bit of naughty, I highly recommend this book. It’s definitely a page turner. It’s well written and suspenseful. I rated The Girl in 6E by A.R. Torre 5 glorious stars.
