I haven't touched another person in three years.
That seems like it would be a difficult task, but it's not. Not anymore, thanks to the internet.
My anonymous clients spend thousands of dollars to watch me take my clothes off for the camera. What they want, I give. Their secrets, I keep.
Everything I tell them is a lie.
Open the door to this year's most shocking thriller.

"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")
"A.R. Torre's The Girl in 6E lifts the veil on the dark, erotic world of camping, 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)
I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
What an amazingly strange book. Perhaps one of the most intriguing and weird "heroines" of any book I've ever read. I bought this book because it was a daily deal on Audible. It caught my attention, though I can't say for sure why. The main character has not left her apartment or come in direct contact with another human in several years. Explaining why would spoil the story. But rather than shutting herself off from relationships, she has found unique ways to make connections and form "friendships" in her narrow little world. She makes her living, and a very good living, operating as a webcam sex worker, who also happens to be a virgin. She presents the details of her work in such a clinical way most of the time that she might as well be explaining her job as a nurse or a CPA.
The story evolves around the choice she makes to expose herself to the world, a step she thinks is extremely dangerous to others, in order to save another person and eventually, to have a personal relationship. By the end of the book you discover just how resourceful, brave and heroic she truly is.
The writing is tight, it moves quickly and I found myself unwilling to put it down. And while she is so clinical and matter of fact about her profession, there are a couple of topics that might make some people uncomfortable, but they are integral to the story and are what makes her the person she is and drives her to take what she considers a huge risk. The narration was excellent.
One of the best books I have read this year.
This book was extremely entertaining and very well put together! The book was a recommendation of an Audible.com representative and it did not disappoint. It would had gotten 5 stars all around if it had spent more time with the action aspect of it but all in all it was tremendously entertaining. I know some have put it down for some of the content but the content is necessary for the setup. I would've liked a resolution in the main area but maybe this leaves the door open for a sequel?
I thought that the narrator did an outstanding job portraying the main character - I really felt like I knew her. I can't imagine reading "leave it, thank you" and getting the same feel of the character as I did from the narrator saying it
The main character was my favorite. She had quite a unique perspective and really kept me engaged with the story
Her inflection with the words made it better than I would have in reading it on my own
I will say that the book was fairly sexually explicit at times, though as long as you can handle a little bit of it I hope it does not make others think twice about choosing this book. The sexually explicit scenes are in the guise of character development and are really not the main focus of the book

This is my first time...
To compliment the narrator first. She made the Girl protagonist, Jess/Deanna, come to life, leap out of the speakers live before my internal dilated pupils, dry mouth and accelerating heartbeat.
While certain aspects of this book appear to border on fantasy, and I would have liked to explore further the Girl's character, this book was fun, a frisky tryst from some of the heavier lit on the market, as suspenseful as today's typical fare in the genre and certainly MUCH more arousing.
Ms. Torre changed the derivation of her name to A.R. from Alessandra for this book, ostensibly so it would not be viewed as purely in the erotica genre (like her last several novels). This is not erotica, though I am guessing it has a number of the same elements. A.R. Torre has a bright future if she can continue the hard task of blending erotica into suspense. She undeniably has the special combination of writing talent, creativity and pure heat to deliver a blockbuster as good as or maybe better than Gillian Flynn's. She's well on her way.
Say something about yourself!
Wow this sounds like a screenplay to low budget porno . Easily the worst thing I've listened to this year and I listen to a bunch. Got it on the 4.95 rack and thankfully didn't use a credit!
Crazy, sexy, cool.
The Girl in 6E, of course. She's crazy/sexy/smart/beautiful and can handle a knife. Why else wouldn't I love her?
Her voice was perfectly fitting and wonderful to listen to throughout.
Great job! Definitely looking for more by A.R. Torre.
Kind of ridiculous, but still a fun listen. I bought this title because it was in Audible's list: "The Next Gone Girl?", this was much more predictable than Gone Girl- still had a few surprises.
This book is listed in Mysteries & Thrillers> Suspense, but should probably be Mysteries & Thrillers > Suspense > Erotica. Will the "virgin" cyber sex star with serious psychological issues of her own become a hero? And will she find true love? And if all that happens- can she save herself?
Well I'm not telling :)
I was hooked on this story so quickly. How does a person manage to live in today's world and never leave the confines of her home? Deanna Madden manages to do so, until she feels so strongly that she must venture out that she (rather gleefully) risks the lives of anyone who comes into contact with her. While this is basically erotica, the story is strong and not buried beneath the sex scenes. Jorjeana Marie, as usual, is spot on with the narration.
First of all the performance of this book is outstanding. The reader is worth buying the book alone.
The story is fascinating and interesting but a little predictable. A very fun listen and worth the credit. Can't wait for the next book.
Canadian girl in Kansas, love audible, books on kindle or kindle fire, and old fashioned books! I enjoy fiction most, mostly books with strong female leads. Favourite authors: Diana Gabaldon, Stephen King, Jodi Picoult, Wally Lamb, Pat Conroy, Andre Dubus III, Lisa Genova, many more!
A young girl lives in her apartment and pays a neighbour to lock her in at night. She's afraid that she will 'get the urge' to hurt someone if she dares to go outside. She makes a ton of money as a 'cam girl' having virtual sex with men all over the country, for $7.00/minute.
But when one of her regular customers gets a bit too weird, and a local girl goes missing, she needs to risk going out in public so she can save the girl.. and herself in the process.
Interesting, entertaining, likable characters- this audio kept me listening with baited breath. It might not be the most sophisticated writing in the world, but it was a fun book and I am glad I had the opportunity to listen to it!
4 stars across the board
