Tight MP3 CD – Unabridged, 24 May 2016
Enhance your purchase
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, 32-year-old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence. I also hadn't gotten 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.

Thirty-two year old Riley Johnson has a quiet life in the small town of Quincy. Being the Chief of Police’s daughter isn’t an easy task either, with any potential relationships tested by his background checks and DNA samples. But it will come in handy for her new relationship that has everybody in town talking about the hot rich man that whisks Riley away to romantic weekends on his private plane.
Riley was attending her best friends bachelorette party when she first met Brett Jacobs. This sweet man offered her slippers when her too small heels turned her feet into blistery pain. With that first meeting their electrical charge was undeniable.
The next night was the girls last in paradise. They headed out to a club and danced their night away. Before long, Riley realised the men in the club weren’t worthy of her body, she could only think of one, Brett. Riley headed outside to get some air, she sensed someone approaching her, it was his voice and imposing form that turned her needy.
“I needed him. My body needed him. Wanted more. I had behaved in the hallway of the 8th floor. I had made a mistake. I didn’t intend to make another.”
Their need for each other was insatiable, their hands needy and their bodies unable to stay apart. Brett told her:
“If I have you, you will not return to life as you know it. You will bend for me, spread for me, allow me to have every inch of your surface, all while screaming my name and shuddering into my heart.”
“Then take me.”
As the months went by, Riley and Brett tried to spend as much time with each other as they could. Travelling to beautiful, exotic locations. But as time continued, Riley started to question some things and pieces to the puzzle that was Brett just didn’t fit together. Once Riley’s suspicions started, she couldn’t stop them from getting bigger and had formulated a plan.
During the book there are chapters from a character named Kitten. She was stolen and drugged and was kept as a slave. Kitten fights and fights and never gives up hope even when her body was broken and bruised. Her love for a man is what kept her going, knowing he would find her and save her from this hell.
Follow the voyage to discover what secrets Brett holds and what activities he gets up to when Riley is back in their room. Find out who Kitten is, how her story meshes within the lives of others and how it all began. I was on a rollercoaster with this one, the unpredictability and mystery of who Kitten is had me addicted from the first page. Tight had parts of action, fun, hot steamy scenes, romance, emotional turmoil and heartache. But it was the unpredictable events that had me crying at the end, unable to comprehend what I was reading, I had to read it twice to make sure I read it right the first time. This is one unbelievable journey and every romance reader that enjoys the dark side MUST read this one. MUST!
Sex slavery is real. The victims are real. The men who purchase are real. One statistic says there are 27 million at risk of human trafficking in this world currently. Awareness can help stop this.
I can't say it's the best of her tales but none the less a good read that will keep you on your toes. It's also for all those women brave enough to fight. I wish the world was full of Brett's.

It is official though, Alessandra Torre has just reached my favourite author list *round of applause*. She is so incredibly talented with her orchestration of the whole book, the way it was set out, the timing of reach narration and all the while keeping the reader on edge guessing throughout the whole book. That right there is pure talent if you ask me.
I also have come to love the portrayal of ‘love’ in this book. I am not a cheesy person, very far from delving in to romantics to be honest but the writing just makes you think…this isn’t some average romance, one we may see in many books no, this right here is the real thing. Holding on and fighting, healing, I’ve never believed more. The way Riley sees her whole future with this guy, realises the dangers of falling, it’s presented in the most realistic way possible. Something another woman may be able to relate to. If love exists this is it. I don’t get this cheesy usually guys but heck if this book doesn’t bring it out of me!
What if we grew old together? What if this was it, he was my soulmate and this breathless, nervous excitement that I felt whenever he reached for me, smiled at me – what if it never faded and was there forever? What if our kids had kids, and we retired together and bought vacation homes and went on cruises and played shuffleboard? What if my hair turned white, and he still loved me, and we died like that old couple in Titanic, our hands clasped, us entering heaven within minutes of each other?
I have read many slavery themed books in the past, Stockholm syndrome is highly prioritized in these ones but this one highlighted the strength of the one captured. She was able to keep in touch to with her former self and not succumb to the torment she was dealt. In that sense this book does touch on a very sensitive topic so if you’re a squeamish kinda person then I don’t think this is for you. However if you are familiar with this concept in stories then you need to read this!
Riley and Brett both managed to steal my heart. They were both pretty much perfect. Riley’s narration portrayed some of the finest wisdom / thoughts. I think I connected to her character more too because of the way she acted and thought about life Reflected my own views. She is so hard to dislike. And Brett is honestly every female readers dream. He’s the mysterious type that keeps the ladies wondering but he’s actually pretty sweet and an incredibly loving man.
Bottom line is, I loved it, and this will stay with me for a long time. Such a beautiful but thoughtful story. Alessandra writes some of the best romances.
WHAT A READ!!!
This is the second Alessandra Torre book I've read and I'm becoming an avid fan of her work. I love the way she adds just a hint of darkness to her novels that keeps you on the edge of your seat while your quite literally white knuckling the arm rests !!
This book took me on a gritty, deep and twisted ride and I LOVED EVERY MOMENT.
There's everything you want in a really good novel all packed into this one story.
You've got intrigue, mystery, fear, passion and an emotionally charged set of characters.
As you read your drawn into the world with ease like your a silent observer within the scenes that unfold, I love when an author can do that and drag me into the environment they are displaying that I feel like I'm hearing the same sounds and smelling the same smells the characters are!
Riley is a small town girl that isn't quite so used to the big bad world outside of her bubble ....... then in walks Brett and with one slight touch pops her protective bubble and allows her to breathe. Only Brett is all consuming and soon she feels like she's drowning, but it's a good feeling right when you've met the 'one'?
Yet how can she be sure Brett is the man she craves when she doesn't know all his secrets? Finding out those secrets could be the ruin of Riley.
I can't recommend this book enough it's a must read for anyone that likes a darker, plot twisting novel.
I've read Black Lies so I know this author likes to mess with minds, I read the blurb and thought yep I can deal with this sounds quite straight forward, I'll be fine. Oh my word, how wrong could I be!
The warning at the start of the book should have got the alarm bells ringing but no I carried on regardless.
Totally blind, without any idea, I embarked on the journey of this love story with a difference.
I'm sure this author must sit back on completion and think mwahahaha that's another one to draw them in, lead them along and then boom obliterate their minds!!
I literally had NO idea, I thought I had it and then that moment in the car knocked my thought process, I had to go back and reread the previous chapter again. I was floored like never before. I had to stop and think and gather my thoughts. How could this be right, how could this happen, what have I just read.
I would urge anyone thinking of reading this book to go in blind and experience this absolutely amazing book without knowing the twist.
I'm off now to start it again, to see if I missed any clues along the way and also because I any get this twisted story of Brett and Riley out of mind.
Tight is told from three POVs: mainly Riley’s, some short snippets from Brett, and finally the mysterious Kitten.
Riley is 32, never been married, hasn’t been in a relationship for years, lives in a small town where everyone knows everyone else’s business. Her behaviour is out of the ordinary when she first encounters Brett, during her friend’s hen weekend in the Bahamas.
Brett is gorgeous and appears to be rich. He is intense and is smitten with Riley. He doesn’t talk much about his past or his business dealings. The snippets of information you get from his POV paints a pretty clear picture of what he does and his motivation.
Kitten is a mystery. She’s a captive. As the story unfolds, we realise that she could be one of two people.
Riley and Brett’s long-distance relationship progresses via phone calls, texts and weekends away to exotic locations. These getaways always involve Brett disappearing for an evening to take care of business. After a while, Riley begins to get suspicious about what he’s doing. She’s in love with him but she’s not sure that she trusts him 100%, and she is desperate not to have her heart broken.
This was a well-written story. The denouement near the end is not a massive surprise, if you're a discerning reader, but it was heartfelt. I think the author did a great job to keep the momentum and suspense going in the story. Definitely worth a read!
Alessandra has an edge that's hard to define...a bravery in that she dares to be different and a talent that sets her aside from most....she isn't afraid to stretch people's boundaries and push them out of their comfort zones...sometimes cringing and sometimes kicking and screaming! Only a few others have ever reached her standard for me. Her stories are totally unique and so clever. This one in particular has a twist that I for one didn't see coming. I was convinced that another scenario would play out, and I think she leads you down that path, so there's a twist within a twist really...fabulously done.
The romance is real and not cheesy, the sex scenes, whilst steamy are tasteful and not just thrown in for the sake of it and the plot/story line is just genius. I loved all of the characters and the subject matter, although traumatic and distressing, is handled with insight and empathy and without sensationialism.
Another one I couldn't put down. I can't praise this author enough...if you've never tried her books ask yourself why not and bite the bullet. I doubt very much you'll regret it.
