Description from Goodreads.com:
I haven't touched a human in three years. That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.
I am, quite possibly, the most popular recluse ever. Not many shut-ins have a 200-member fan club, a bank account in the seven-figure range, and hundreds of men lining up to pay for undivided attention.
They get satisfaction, I get a distraction. Their secret desires are nothing compared to why I hide... my lust for blood, my love of death.
Taking their money is easy. Keeping all these secrets... one is bound to escape.
What if you hid yourself away because all you could think of was killing? And what if one girl's life depending on you venturing into society?
Enter a world of lies, thrills, fears, and all desires, in this original thriller from A. R. Torre.
I am so happy that I finally bought and listened to The Girl in 6E! I have been wanting to read this for a while now, but I just hadn't seen any persuasive reviews. It almost has 4 stars on Goodreads, but none of my Goodreads friends have read or reviewed it, so I didn't have anything to force me to buy it. Luckily, I decided to just go for it and try the audio, and it was so worth it!
I do have to warn you that this is an erotic suspense, so there are instances of sexual content, but it really wasn't overpowering to me. The story wasn't about Jessica's (Deanna) career, but about her dak desire to kill. What Jessica does to make money was instead a secondary story line that helped tell the main story line. So if you're looking for an erotic romance this will have tidbits of that, but it won't be the focus point.
The genre honestly falls somewhere between New Adult and Adult, but I like to think of it as more of a New Adult because of Jessica's age. I absolutely loved that this was a different type of New Adult, though, because I have been begging for it! What I mean about different is that lately all I have been coming across are New Adults about the shy, hot girl banging the hot, unattainable guy at college. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love these, but I want some variety and The Girl in 6E gave me that. It has suspense and thriller mixed with a dose of erotica, and a small amount of romance.
I definitely think listening to it, instead of reading it, enhanced my experience. I have a problem with reading ahead during a suspenseful or thrilling scene so that I can know what happens "before" the character does. Like I have to force myself to keep my eyes on the word I am currently reading and not look ahead in the next sentence. Listening, I get to experience it and be shocked the same time the character is. Jorjeana Marie was a pretty good narrator, who I wouldn't have a problem listening to again at all. She did different character voices very well, but I did have a small problem with her voice for Jessica. In the beginning I really liked it, but sometimes she would change her voice and it would throw me off. It only happened towards the beginning, so it didn't ruin the experience or anything, but it still threw me.
I really enjoyed listening to this. It definitely enhanced the story to listen instead of read, because I wasn't tempted to skip ahead in the story. Jorjeanna Marie's performance did have one, small set back, though. In the beginning she kept changing her voice for Jessica's character and it threw me off, but eventually I either got used to it or she stuck with one. It didn't ruin anything, but it did distract for a moment. Regardless, I would definitely listen to Jorjeanna Marie again. The story was very different from what I am used to reading, especially in the new adult genre, and I loved that. This story was unique, interesting and kept me listening. I cannot wait for book two!
