What the Critics Say

"A.R. Torre's The Girl in 6E lifts the veil on the dark, erotic world of camming, but the book contains so many more surprises than that. At the novel's core, a tender heart beats, and the increasingly suspenseful pages fly by as its deepest secrets are revealed. This is a taut, edgy, thrill ride, powerfully gripping and impossible to turn away from." (David Bell, author of Never Come Back and Cemetery Girl)
"An incredible debut. Gritty, unique, primal, full of angst, oddly feminist, and right up my alley. The Girl in 6E deviates from formulaic romance to deliver something truly special and worthy of praise and attention. A dark soul like me isn't often surprised by controversy or taboo subject matter, but this book delivers and I'll be reading more A.R. Torre books in the future. Kudos!" (CJ Roberts, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of The Dark Duet
"Dark, edgy, and thrilling in a completely unexpected way." (Lisa Renee Jones, New York Times best-selling author of The Inside Out series)

There is nothing 50 shades about this book.

This was a great book, it was easily equal to The Girl in 6 E Possibly even Better. But the likeness to 50 shades is a farce. There is no D/s or M/s dynamic in this book. In fact frankly I am a little disturbed that it would be compared to 50 shades but this book references things that are clearly non-consensual. Which is exactly the opposite of 50Shades much less any well written BDSM literary piece.

Don't but this because you are looking for 50Shades, buy it because you read The Girl in 6E and want to follow a brilliant story.

For the record, Violence and sex do not equal Dominant, they equal predator.

Weirdly and Disturbingly Wonderful

This is the sequel to The Girl in 6E, which is one of the best books I have read this year. One of the strangest, but one of the best. Do Not Disturb continues the story of Deanna Madden, one of the most bizarre and questionably sane heroines ever to grace the pages of a novel. Honesty, after reading 6E, I never expected there to be sequel. It didn't scream "series". But I am glad the author gave me another chance to spend time with this weirdly amoral but very likable character.

Her somewhat unique career - internet sex cam girl - isn't described quite so clinically in this book. There is more graphic detail than in the first book, which didn't bother me, but might be offensive to others. I actually found it quite fascinating and was impressed (and curious about) by how much research the author had to do about this job.

The premise of this book is - just as Deanna is starting to emerge from her self-imposed isolation and making tentative connections in the real world, she is faced with a really bad guy and her ultimate show down with him allows her to give into her bloodlust. At the end of the first book I doubted if Deanna's fears were justified and if she was as capable of violence as she seemed to believe. By the end of Do Not Disturb, there was no doubt in my mind that she is as scary as she believes herself to be.

The book also fleshes out a couple other characters introduced in the first book. Both her boyfriend and her paid computer hacker are generally good guys, both are in love with her and both see the good and the bad in her. They make Deanna more real and less of a caricature.

This book isn't for everyone, but I still recommend it. It is full of frank and blunt sexual content, but at the same time, it isn't eroticized at all. There is some violence and gore near the end. But it is extremely well written, the plot moves quickly and keeps you interested, there is humor and compassion and Deanna, despite how screwed up she is, is also endearing and likable. Jorjeana Marie, the narrator did an excellent job. I will definitely read the next book about Deanna. I am rooting for her.
