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.

HASH(0xabe841a4) out of 5 stars Tangled Web AR Torre Weaves!!! 11 November 2015
By Deanna PinkLady - Published on Amazon.com
The masterful storyteller strikes again. If You Dare is the 3rd book in the Deanna Madden series. This series is suspense and intrigue and darkness at its finest.

I can’t tell you how many times I have wanted to transport myself into Deanna’s apartment and just hug her and love her and tell her that she can “have normal”. I believe that Deanna Madden is a psychotherapist’s dream. There are so many facets to Deanna……….her personality and her actions could be dissected for days, weeks, and definitely months. She is beyond strong but she is so very isolated in her own darkness that even when the light, aka Jeremy Pacer, tries to enter, she only allows the light to peek in so it never fully takes over the darkness. Deanna’ psychiatrist, Derek, has tried to help but can one really help when your sessions are done over the phone? And then there is Mike, Deanna’s techie that keeps her safe and isolated. Jeremy, Derek, and Mike are all champions of Deanna in one form or another but they all have some sort of disconnect as well. It’s such a tangled web the author weaves………its utter perfection!! I can’t forget to mention Simon…..he serves a purpose but he’s not a champion.

We know that Deanna goes to jail but why is the question. I won’t tell you anything more because to do so would be to spoil the journey. The journey is one that keeps you breathless at times, makes you sad at times, has you rooting at times and mostly it is one that makes you feel all of the time. A.R. Torre knows how to weave a brilliant story and add just the right amount of twists and turns to keep you captivated.

I will say that the ending took awhile to sink in for me. As I discussed with others, talked about what had happened, I decided that the ending was in fact perfect (for me). As whenever I open a book by this amazing author, I go into a book hangover where her books just affect my psyche for a few days. Her writing is visual and detailed and completely mesmerizing.

If you have read the first 2 books, get ready for a wickedly dastardly ride and if you haven’t read the first 2 in the series- GO GO GO and one click The Girl in 6E and Do Not Disturb. I promise that this series does not and will not disappoint.

HASH(0xabe84174) out of 5 stars What an amazing read!!! 11 November 2015
By Happy Mom of 2 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
absolutely loved this book......this series! Not all books make you cringe, yell at your kindle, cry, make you send messages to authors begging for answers before you finish reading because you are just that vested in the characters. This series has and continued to do so.

This is the 3rd installment in this series and must be read in order in order to get the full affect of the story and understanding of the storyline.

Deanna....I love her. Not because she's a super friendly, loveable, fun kind of girl but because she's not. She is hard, complicated, and dangerous. The only time we see the softer side of Deanna is when she is interacting with Jeremy and Mike and even then she keeps you on edge.

Jeremy....I have loved him since he showed up on Deanna's door. He seemed to be the only person she was willing to let in. I love the calming effect he has on her despite the fact that he knows that she is not the typical girlfriend. He loves her in spite of her crazy.

Did the story go exactly how I would have liked.....no. Was I glued to my kindle waiting to see what was coming next...yes. Do I hope that Alessandra will revisit these characters one day again....absolutely!

If you are new to this series, get ready for the ride of your life. If you have already boarded the crazy train of Deanna Madden then hold on to your seat cause it's a bumpy ride! Grab your copy of If You Dare....I dare you!

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.

HASH(0xabe843b4) out of 5 stars A MUST READ! 11 November 2015
By TJCrouch - Published on Amazon.com

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 it...you will not be disappointed!

HASH(0xabe84bb8) out of 5 stars Another great installment in this series! 11 November 2015
By Jenna-Mommy Reads What?! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This was great installment of this series. I always think that I have these things figured out before starting them, but am way off every single time and I LOVE it. I was drawn into this book fairly quick and could not put it down. I admit, at first the back and forth of the Past and Present threw me off. But I quickly was able to see what was going on.
I'm not even sure I know how to review this book without spoiling it. So much goes on and none of it was expected. Though I will admit that once I figured out some things I was able to make some guesses and some of them were right.
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. Jeremy, Mike, Dr. Derek, they are all back and my questions surrounding them continue. I know I was left wondering one thing at the end of the book, is this the last we will see of Deanna Madden and if not where will she take us next?

4 stars!!!
