**Review with Giveaways** DO NOT DISTURB (Deanna Madden #2) by A.R. Torre ( @ReadAlessandra )




Equal parts Dexter and 50 Shades, this is the eagerly awaited follow-up to the daring erotic thriller, The Girl in 6E, by A.R. Torre.

My rules:
1. Don't leave the apartment.
2. Never let anyone in.
3. Don't kill anyone.
The rules were simple and I broke them.
Now I must face the consequences.
Everyone else must face me.

DND - consequences



I am not sure there are words that adequately describe my love of Alessandra Torre's writing  In each book she creates you get a different and unique story, great depth of characters, plots you can never predict and writing that has you holding your breath because you never know what Alessandra may do to these characters (it is always great reading).  Followers of my blog (or reviews) know how much I enjoy Alessandra, so when I heard of a sequel to The Girl in 6E, I had grabby-I-need-this-book-in-my-Kindle-hands!  Do Not Disturb is being sold as a stand-alone book, but I hate to disagree with the fabulousness of Ms. Torre, but I REALLY suggest you read The Girl in 6E first.  Yes.  I imagine you can read this story, enjoy it and feel fine, but reading The Girl in 6E first will give you so much more amazing, rich background on Deanna and her "issues" that I really think it is important to read it first (plus it is a book that will blow you away).

Do Not Disturb.... What an emotional rollercoaster!  The twists, the turns, the evolution of characters (old and new) was just amazing.  Be warned, you will start this book and have the hardest time putting it down, so settle in some where comfy (with snacks) and get ready to be taken on a crazy ride that will leave you breathless.  I think I held my breath more in this book than any other I have read, I was in shock, awe and at one point I may have screamed "NO!" and woken up my kids. Do No Disturb is really that good.

Alessandra Torre is a master at writing stories with heat, suspense, thrills, disturbing characters and a touch of crazy that when combined is unlike any book you have read before.  This book is erotic and has some darker subject matter, but it isn't too much or too over the top.  The balance that is Do Not Disturb is beautifully executed   

Deanna and Jeremy (hell, Mike too) I don't think I am done with them quite yet.  I was content with The Girl in 6E being it, then Do Not Disturb happened.  I am perfectly happy with how this all plays out and if this is the end of these characters I am in a good place, however, I want more.  I am greedy reader and need to know more about what happens next!  Alessandra please give us more Deanna!!

If you have read The Girl in 6E then Do Not Disturb should be an instant 1-click for you.  If you have read Alessandra before, then this should be an instant 1-click for you.  If you have never read Alessandra then THIS should be an instant 1-click for you, after you read The Girl in 6E (see a pattern?).  Grab your e-reader, a drink and go somewhere you can be absorbed in this world for a while, heck, put out your very own "do not disturb" sign out and get reading right now!!
