From New York Times Bestselling Author Alessandra Torre...
This is not a story of servitude. This is a story of strength.
I was happy in my small town. In my life as a single, thirty-two year old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence.
I also hadn't got laid in three years. Hadn't been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and wearing makeup... a while ago.
Then Brett Jacobs waltzed in. Caressed my thigh, dug rough fingers into my hair, lowered his soft mouth to my skin, took sexual control of my mind and stirred it all around with what he packed in his pants. He flipped my quiet life upside down and crawled into a place in my heart I thought was dead.
The issue is his secret.
The issue is her.
The issue is that I don't even know she exists, and he thinks she's dead.
The issue is that shit is about to hit the fan and I can't hold on to him tight enough.
Note to Readers: This standalone book contains themes which could be considered dark.
Julie from Little Read Riding Hood and I loved this book, and we had a little discussion (spoiler-free, of course) we’d like to share.
(Bethany) Hey girl! So, we just finished reading TIGHT. I admit, I was completely stunned by this book. My mouth was hanging open at the end. What was your reaction?
(Julie) Oh my goodness…..I soaked up every single word in TIGHT!!! It’s really hard to describe this book without giving too much away …isn’t it??!! There are so many words I could use to describe this book…..edgy, dark, romantic, attention-grabbing, unique, and it snares you within the pages. I am still reeling!!
(Bethany) Yes! There are so many twists and turns in this book. I never knew from chapter to chapter or page to page what direction the author was going to take the story. I think readers definitely need to go into to this book blind because you don’t want anything about it spoiled.
So Julie, what did you think about Brett?
(Julie) What a spectacular man!! Whew!! This hottie knows how to sweep a girl off her feet, worship her in bed, and leave you longing for ‘just one more night’. Seriously – I loved the edginess to Brett. His romantic side just sealed the deal for me.
How about you Bethany……was Brett a ‘love ’em’ or ‘leave ’em’ type of man for you?
(Bethany) Brett was kinda perfection for me. When he loves a woman he’ll move heaven and earth to keep her happy and safe. When he falls, he falls hard. He’s the type of man that never gives up on his woman no matter what. What could be better than that? 😉
One thing I’ve noticed with Alessandra’s female protagonists is their strong inner strength, and that’s one of the reasons I keep coming back for more stories from her. I found Riley’s character in TIGHT very relatable. I also loved the fact she’s a 30 something curvy, southern woman. 🙂 I could definitely connect with that kind of girl!
What keeps you 1-clicking Alessandra’s books?
(Julie) I love the way Alessandra’s writing takes you on a journey. Each book she writes seems to take you on the ‘edge’ of a revelation. The twists or turns along the way add to each element of the story. Building the best romances….discovering the big ‘secret’ …and leaving you in so enraptured by the characters.
For me – Alessandra’s books seem to stay with me long after I turn that last page. They leave readers thinking about them long after release date. Coaxing you to find your way back to a re-read to discover more sides of the characters you love that may have escaped you the first time you took a look into their lives.
(Bethany) Gosh Julie, you state that so elegantly. You are correct; her books do tend to stay with you for days after you’ve read them. I’m so happy we got to experience this journey together. I can’t wait to read what this author has in store for us next.
This was a fun a little book chat. You’re one of the best book friends a girl could have. Thank you. Muah xoxo
(Julie) You know I love discussing books with you!!
BOOM! Tight surprised the hell out of me at every single turn. I had no clue where the story was going from one chapter to the next. I thought this was going to be a certain type of erotica love story and it turned out to be something completely different. This unique storyline kept me guessing until the very end.
Alessandra’s writing style is so different and refreshing from other popular romance novels. She keeps readers on their toes with mystery, suspense, and sensuality. She also seems to have quite the knack for writing strong heroines, and I absolutely adore that. This couldn’t have been an easy project to pull off with the timelines and seemingly multiple POVs. However, the author nailed it and did it well!
In my opinion, TIGHT is Alessandra’s best work to date. If you liked GIRL IN 6E or BLACK LIES, then I think you will devour TIGHT. 4.5 well deserved stars for this fast-paced, creative, and unique novel.
