Product description

Product Description

Equal parts Dexter and 50 Shades, this is the eagerly awaited new novel from A. R. Torre, author of the award winning erotic thriller, The Girl in 6E.

The rules are the same. I can't open the door. I can't leave. I can't kill anyone.

The only difference is, I don't set the rules anymore. Guards in grey uniforms do. It is everything I never wanted and everything I always deserved. I write to you now, from a prison cell. My home for the next twenty to thirty years.

That's the going term for murder.

On face, "If You Dare" was a really good book - fast paced, engaging, and just a really solid thriller but I have to say it didn't mesmerise me like the first two books. Maybe because the formula was predictable or I already could read Deanna but I stopped and started this book many times before finally finishing it. Even though "If You Dare" is not exactly a romance or erotica, there is still something really sexy about it. The story oozes erotism and sexuality. This is a Deanna Madden novel so the action was full throttle.
Dee finds that her passion for killing has caught up to her. The story flips between the past and the present as we try to piece together what happened and why Deanna is arrested. There are twists and turns and lots of things that I didn't see coming. I still have so many things I want to know. The things that annoyed me were that throughout this novel, she makes a point over and over of reminding the reader how "dangerous" she is, but she's certainly no sociopath. She may enjoy killing and hurting bad guys, but she has a conscience and she's never hurt anyone who was innocent. There is no question, this book pushes boundaries and has you questioning everything. Ms Torre layers the story and only gives you the information she wants to when she wants you to have it. You may feel a bit lost at times but keep reading, the pay off is worth it. I am going to leave this review at this. I don't want to spoil it for anyone. I say 3.5/ 4 stars, only because the different POVs threw me at times and the first two books in the series are amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ! 11 November 2015
By TJCrouch - Published on

Deanna Madden...A name you will NEVER forget. If You Dare is the third book in the Deanna Madden Series, the first being The Girl in 6E and the 2nd being Do Not Disturb. When I read Do Not Disturb it quickly became my favorite out of the series, however, If You Dare has now taken that spot. There is so much emotion in If You Dare. Throughout the book we get a look at the "true" Deanna....her strengths, her fears, her heartbreak.

"It is how I was made; it is how I will be until the day I that I die."

Deanna struggles with so much, yet as always Deanna prevails. She is a fighter who never gives up. Deanna knows what she must do to survive and she puts her plan into action. She is one of the toughest book heroines I have ever had the pleasure of reading about.

Alessandra Torre NEVER disappoints! Each book has its own different twist....#TORRESTYLE. As usual I was on the edge of my seat reading. I didn't want to put it down until I was completely finished, but then I didn't want it to end. I read the ending several times- each time begging for more.

I don't want to give anything away about this book- so you MUST read it! While it can be read as a standalone it is recommended to read them in order:
Book 1: The Girl in 6E
Book 2: Do Not Disturb
Book 3: If You Dare

Read will not be disappointed!

I was screaming "YESSSSS" before I even read this book! Deanna's story have to read this if you have read the first two!
Again it keeps going soon after Book 2. You could read it as a standalone, but I would think you would miss out on too much of the characters buildups for this book to be as enjoyable.
After book 2 taking such a different turn than book 1 you think where can this story go now?
Ya, its best not to even question Torre at this point, she is going to deliver! She wouldn't know how to give us a subpar story at this point.
That said, I was guessing at every turn in this book. I wanted it to go one way, but this being a Deanna story line, we have learned anything could happen.
So many unexpected things do happen in his book. Good and bad.
Once again I hope to see the story continue after this one.
One thing Torre does at the end of all 3 of these books, she leaves it without a cliffhanger, so your not sitting and waiting for the next book. Well you are waiting and hoping there is a next book, but it's not in the angsty way where you are left unsatisfied.
No she builds up the story, then has an amazing "Holly Fricken Amazing" ending! That can either be the last of these characters, or she can continue with the next chapter in the characters lives.
And here is hoping Deanna isn't done with us yet!

If You Dare (Deanna Madden #3) by AR Torre
5 stars!!!

“I am the girl I never wanted to be but have been for a long time. I am the madness, the demon, the insanity.”

This was the series that brought AR Torre to my attention many years ago. Deanna Madden was one of those characters that always was a bit of a mystery, yet despite all her faults and her eccentricities she was one character that had totally endeared herself to me. Yes, I felt sorry for her, yes, I empathised and sympathised but most of all I was intrigued, who or what had made Deanna, Deanna?

“I can only keep the crazy confined for so long.”

In this book we delve deeper into Deanna’s psyche but this is definitely a story of personal growth for Deanna. The self-imposed reclusive is slowly beginning to realise that there is a life outside of 6E. Just as she begins to make those baby steps to a little freedom something happens that leads Deanna to question everything and puts her right back to square one. Deanna is facing her biggest challenge in this book, who is friend, who is foe? Who can she trust? Can she trust herself?

“I’ve become much more comfortable with lying than I’ve ever been with telling the truth.”

Jeremy, our favourite UPS man really tries to get through to Deanna, he starts to push her boundaries little by little and tries to bring her out into the open. He becomes a bit more forceful in this book, but for the good and he is gentle with it. He knows he has to tread carefully for Deanna’s sake as well as his own. He loves Deanna, he can’t help it, but he needs a little “normal,” however, as we all know, there is nothing “normal” about Deanna.

“And therein lay the problem. There was a strong possibility he was in love with a psychopath.”

I loved Mike in this book, he is Deanna’s one constant and someone that she can rely on, always. He is the only person that knows all there is to know about Deanna and he is the one person that is always there, no matter the time or circumstances. He really steps up to the plate in this book and is one awesome friend. Everyone needs a Mike.

This book had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end, my heart was in my mouth for most of it. AR Torre has always packed a punch with this series and If You Dare is no different. With multiple POV’s and flips from past to present, AR Torre slowly drip feeds you the pertinent information that you need to understand what is actually going on. The first half of this book I was as confused as hell, but in a good way. It is this confusion that leads you to question everything you are reading, looking for clues and that one piece of information that could potentially put the lid on the can of worms that is If You Dare.

“He was the one clean thing in my life, so I held him close. Seduced him further, let him love. I was too selfish not to.”

AR Torre masterfully weaves that tangled web and you are the poor fly caught on the outskirts waiting for that big bad spider to come and gobble you up. The anticipation of being spider dinner is forever present as you struggle against what you are reading, yet still manage to absorb. But it is your impatience and fervour to understand that keeps those pages turning wildly and made this a truly un-put-downable read for me.

“It was a fun game. And now it is over.”

Once again, I applaud AR Torre for another astounding read. Those that follow me know that Hollywood Dirt is my favourite read of the year so far and now we have another contender for that spot, If You Dare. It seems AR Torre is getting a little greedy and wanting those top spots all to herself. But this just goes to show her diversity and her talent, from one extreme to the other the words speak for themselves, whether it be romantic comedy or mystery suspense, this woman knows how to write.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why must this be the end? 1 December 2015
By Amber Goleb - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I had been salivating for this final book in Deanna's story. I couldn't wait. My mind was always wondering what Alessandra had in store for this book. This ending to the captivating story was well worth the wait!

Is Deanna the one who tried to kill Jeremy? Did she stab him? Push him out of his window? Will she survive prison? Is prison worse for Deanna's mental capacity than her apartment of seclusion? What is really going on in the world that Deanna has worked so hard to avoid all of these years?

This one, like the others, had me at the first word. This book surpasses any expectations I could have possibly had before reading it. It's gripping and suspenseful. I found myself questioning if she truly was capable of such a heinous crime. I found myself waivering and wondering. I tried to piece everything together to figure out just what really happened.

In true fashion, Alessandra will have you on the edge of your seat from the start to finish. This book will blow your mind. It is pure perfection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hungover! 11 November 2015
By A Book A Day - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Book Hangover... (n)
1. The inability to start a new book because you are still living in the old book's world;
2. The inability to function at work/school because you were up all night binge-reading

Alessandra Torre's, If You Dare, fulfills every definition listed above. As I write this review I am still attempting to catch my breath, to clear my head. To wonder where can she go from here? To comprehend her talent. Words, I'm looking for words to describe, review, and share what this book did to me. How do you put into words that a book ripped you to shreds, and put you back together again? That left you with heart palpitations, and the inability to read anything else. How do you describe the amazing talent, the anomaly that is Alessandra Torre?

If You Dare is so versatile that expectations are a waste of time. So intense that balancing on the edge seems safe. So mind boggling that confusion is imminent. Alessandra took a chance on a character that is not your typical heroine and over the course of three books created a psychological thriller like none other I have ever read. This series made her someone I respect, I understand, I admire.

I am a ferocious reader and an author has to have the amazing ability to capture and to hold my attention, to cause me to lose myself to the point I am speechless, to have me so engrossed with a book that a world outside of the novel cease to exist. Alessandra Torre has that amazing skill.

Twisted, convoluted, passionate, terrified, are all words I would use to describe Deanna Madden. Yet there is something deeper than what we superficially see. She is embodied by something so dark that searching for the light is her only option. She is searching for good in the midst of turmoil. She is exploring love while not understanding it. She is seeking her soul while lost in the anguish of hell. She is chasing redemption.

Deanna’s search is lined with demoralization, intimidation, panic, angst and characters that trigger her depravity. There is no one better than Alessandra Torre to direct us through her discovery of self-preservation. There is no author more equipped with the ability to indulge us in psychological warfare than Alessandra.

This book caused me to dig deep into my inner psyche and think about being pushed to a point, sometimes a point of no return. This book showed me a love so out of the ordinary anything else will fail in comparison. This book pushed me on the edge of the cliff only to pull me back in just as I was about to topple over. This book made me look at myself differently

As I sit back and think over the last few days and the impact this book had on me I know Deanna Madden will forever be in my heart, Alessandra Torre will always be in my top five of authors and If You Dare will forever be etched in my mind.

If You Dare to pass on this book, to not enter Deanna’s world and to ignore the talent of Alessandra Torre, you will have done yourself a terrible injustice.
