Review – Double Down – Alessandra Torre

Double Down, is the second, and final book in Alessandra Torre’s new romantic suspense duet All In.

DoubleDown_EbookThe first book, Even Money, which should be read before taking on Double Down, ends on one hell of a cliffhanger.  Lucky for the reader, we didn’t have to wait long for Double Down to release and Miss Torre picked up right where she left off.

Just like Even Money, Double Down is a romantic suspense novel, however I did find the second book to be a little darker than the first.  It worked well to give the storyline an edgy feel full of twists and unforeseen turns, hooking you in until it conclusion.

Alessandra Torre has the creativity, the wicked imagination and the skill to write the stories that readers want to read, from the first word until the very last.

I’ve grown to love the characters in Double Down and hope to see them in books of their own.  But for now, Bell and Dario will have their HEA.

Overall I give Double Down 4 Stars and the All In Series 4.5*.

Release Day – Double Down – Alessandra Torre

DOUBLE DOWN Available Now Twitter.jpgHappy release day to Alessandra Torre!  Her book, Double Down, the second book in the All In Duet series is now live!

The stunning conclusion to the All In Duet…

DoubleDown_EbookIn Vegas, there was one man who was off limits. One man… and I fell for him.
I knew there were risks. Still, I played the game. When Dario Capece called, I answered. When he beckoned, I came. When he broke all my rules, I looked the other way.

I knew there were risks. I just never realized they included death.

*Note, this book is the second and final book in the All In Duet. It should be read After Even Money.

Review – Even Money – Alessandra Torre

As any reviewer knows, when given a ARC copy of any book to review, there is always a chance that the book will be horrible.  Always that slight fear that you aren’t going to be able to say anything good about it.   I need to tell you that Even Money is so far from horrible its on the complete other end of the spectrum.

EvenMoney_EbookNow I may be bias, since I love everything that Alessandra Torre writes, but I think Even Money may just be one of her best books yet.

I was completely greedy with every word, devouring the pages as quickly as I could.

The storyline of Even Money is a nice change of pace from the typical romance novels, which I think is why I loved it so much.  Miss Torre wrote masterful words of sexual wickedness, naughty transgressions and edgy suspense all while making us fall in love with Dario and Bell.

Even Money was hotter than Hades in Hell.

 

He growled the words and they poured out like kerosene on my need.

Even Money is told from a dual POV, with a strong female lead and ends with one hell of a cliffhanger.  But luckily it looks like book 2 of this duet will be out on June 18 for which I am glad, because the suspense is killing me.

I give Even Money 5 Stars, plus a glass of whiskey, which was need to cure my book hangover.

It’s finally live!  Happy Release Day Alessandra Torre.

We bet it all….and lost. EvenMoney_Ebook

Sometimes it only takes a minute. A connection of eyes across a room, and everything changes. I was a cocktail waitress with a fondness for partying and meaningless sex.

He owned half of Vegas, with a reputation to match.  I should have turned away.

Instead, I stepped closer.

Then then, lies started.

Rumors spread.

Stalking commenced.

And someone died.

None of it stopped me from falling in love.

About Unlocked601c8-ul2bpaperback2bfinal

Princess Raya of Paruth lived alone on a deserted island in a towering lighthouse, forgotten by time. With only a loyal albatross as a friend, she had little hope or joy in her life until he washed up on her shore in the middle of a raging winter storm.

Prince Trevor of Galder left his father and kingdom behind to travel north in search of a wife. It was time to settle down and forget Ella Carina, the woman who chose to love a peasant and follow her heart instead of choosing Trevor and fulfilling her duty to her people. He didn’t heed the warnings about the North Sea in winter, and his ship, crew, and captain paid the price.

Raya and Trevor must work together to find a way off the island, or risk being trapped there for the rest of their lives. But sometimes the simplest lessons are the hardest, and each will have to learn that the only thing that can truly set you free is love
