TIGHT by Alessandra Torre Release Day Launch, Dual Review + Giveaway!


TIGHT Final Cover
I was happy in my small town. In my life as a single thirty-two year old woman. I had a good job, wonderful friends, my independence.

I also hadn't got laid in three years. Hadn't been on a date in two. Had stopped counting calories and putting on 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 dumped 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 everything is about to hit the fan and I can't hold on to him tight enough.



Riley is an independent woman who keeps to herself, for the most part.  She's got her parents, her girlfriends, and her dog, but she's missing a man in her life.  This doesn't seem to concern her much, until she meets a man who holds the slippers to her heart. Yeah, we said slippers… With a pair of overly cushy, fluffy slippers, her life changes forever – good or bad remains to be seen. 

"I told you this doesn't have to be anything."
"Or, it could be the start of everything."

Brett is a mysterious all-American type guy.  Good-looking, well-to-do, and loving, he is completely taken by Riley the second he lays eyes on her. But he's got secrets – giant multiple elephant in the room type secrets - and he's not ready to let her in on them.

"I feel like I've waited my whole life for you."

Their romance is a whirlwind: weekly tropical vacations, lavish dinners, really hot sex.  Brett is almost ready to take the next step with Riley but being the small town girl she is, she's got reservations. The further she digs into the life of Brett Jacobs, the more she loses her own. 

Kitten, well, you’ll just have to wait to find out more about her…

"Tight: A bond that cannot be broken."

I have to say I really enjoyed this story.  I was 50% in and had the ominous feeling that something bad was about to happen.  Alessandra has a penchant for twists and turns in her stories, and Tight is full of them.  I'm rooting for Riley and Brett's relationship, because they both deserve something good in their lives.  I'm nervous for them because of the secrets Brett is keeping and Riley's apprehension of it is keeping her from really showing her true feelings to him.  This book was hard for me to put down.  I'm officially addicted to Alessandra Torre's writing and cannot wait to read more from her extensive collection of novels.

Here’s the deal… 
The storyline blew me away. In true Alessandra fashion, she kept me guessing ‘til the very end. BUT, I had a very hard time getting into the story initially. The writing in the first 25% or so, consists of fragments and odd start and stop points in relation to sentence structure. Once I passed that section, I was golden. Tight is hard to put down. Sarah finished before me (as usual) so she had the added bonus of receiving messages from me every hour as I tried to pick apart what was going on. Poor girl. Her response usually consisted of “…”  I’ll admit I wasn't kind when I replied.

There were a few small areas where Alessandra wasn't consistent – specifically in relation to where Riley lived. The town seemed to migrate from Just south of the Georgia boarder all the way up to Bibb County, which is in middle Georgia. It’s a tiny fact, but that coupled with my rough start didn’t allow me to give the full five stars I would have liked to. 

Stars aside, we both agree that Tight is a book worth reading. Alessandra has the ability to come up with incredibly original story lines, breathing life into her words with such ease. We both look forward to reading more of her work in the future.
