Equal parts Dexter and Fifty Shades, this is the eagerly awaited follow-up to the daring erotic thriller The Girl in 6E by A.R. Torre.
1. Don't leave the apartment.
2. Never let anyone in.
3. Don't kill anyone.
The rules were simple, and I broke them.
Now I must face the consequences.
Everyone else must face me.

"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)
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.
I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
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.
I enjoyed listening to this sequel. I will say that at times it seemed to dragged a bit but I didn't mind too much. At the end I figured that it was not the last book and it was confirmed with the authors comment. With that said, I can't hardly wait for the next book! Give me more..I am ready 😊
Can't stop listening
Yes it did! Sometimes with books that are told from different character point of views I get bored with one or two of the story lines. This one kept my attention throughout with each character.
I didn't have an extreme reaction
Fascinating. Thrilling. Sexy.
Deanna is freaking amazing! She really believes that she has inherited her mother's homicidal tendencies and took every measure to avoid unleashing them on the world. Until Ralph. Until Annie. Until Jeremy. Until Marcus aka Freebird71. They challenged her, and boy does she meet that challenge in a brilliant manner.
Yes, her narration on The Girl in 6E convinced me to dive into the world of sexcaming and discover just how perverted predators like Ralph could be. I wasn't sure if I really wanted to get into the minds of Deanna's clients but Jorjeana's skillful narration sucked me in rather quickly. This performance was just as well done and I will definitely continue the series via audiobook format because of her.
Yes, there were several moments, but it would be more than a little spoilery to mention them in detail. Suffice to say that I loved chapters 23, 34 and definitely 117, the closing chapter.
Be sure to listen to the author's note at the end. I am so grateful that she made 2 very important revisions. We have Mr. Torre to thank for one of those revisions. So, thank you, Mr. Torre and thank you, A.R. Torre for not breaking my heart while still giving readers a very satisfying second look at Deanna's sexcaming universe and the consequences that rocked her world. I am eagerly anticipating If You Dare (Deanna Madden #3), expected on November 10, 2015.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
Porn queen Deanna Morgan's back, on her back, knees, and well... every other body part. It got weirdly dull in the intro to the series which I returned. BUT... a friend insisted I give her another chance... I did and ... okay, she's a sort of hooker that hooks you. Look... this is an adult book. You'll know that REALLY EARLY ON.
And the sex is integral to the story. What can I say, this one works for me, the first didn't. Go figure...
Jorieana Marie, BTW... is smoking hot :-}
Too busy to read as much as I'd like, Audible is the perfect solution. I'm a romance reader mostly, but can stray into any story.
I wasn't sure I wanted to continue with Deanna's story because book 1 was so perfect, but I just had to know and I'm so glad I did.
Just a fair warning, this is nothing like 50 shades. At all. Matter of fact, Deanna is mostly anti-bdsm.
It's actually nothing like Dexter either as Deanna does what she can to control her crazy and not use it for good.
This story is more just fitted by saying it's a dark romance. Deanna has an overwhelmingly strong urge to kill but does whatever she can to stop herself from doing so. However in Do Not Disturb, she starts to trust herself more and starts to not only let people in, but also let herself out.
Surprisingly, this isn't what starts her trouble and where it goes from there must be enjoyed by the listener blindly.
I love these characters and there is no hesitation to move onto book 3. I want to see more from all of them and Dive even deeper into their minds and lives.
I will again, shout from the rooftops about Jorjeana Marie. If she was the voice of every controversial character I read about from now on, I would be a happy listener. Thank you for bringing so much life and reality to these characters.
What a great follow up! However, I don't get the 50 Shades comparison. Rather than a juvenile, cobbled together story, these books are very well written. Despite being shocking they tell a fascinating story about an extremely flawed young heroine. With this book, as well as the first one, I alternated between loving the character of Deanna Madden and strongly disliking her. This gal is seriously messed up. So far both books in the series have been impossible to put down. They are just that good. To those who don't mind the erotica or can see it as an integral part of the stories I highly recommend them. Be sure to start with the first book. It is a must to have an introduction to what makes Deanna tick.
