Synopsis new

I have discovered the witch who started this disaster, and her name is Cecile. She is the lock around my husband’s heart; she is the barrier between me and everything I ever wanted.

I have decided to fight. For his heart, for my father, for the Jimmy Choos that rest on my perfectly manicured feet. The problem with a fight is that there is ultimately a loser. And in a situation like this, she has the advantage and a clear head start.

But I am here, and she is not. And I have not shared everything. I have some secrets and some advantages of my own. I will fight to the death, if not of my body, than of my heart. And if my heart is destroyed in this battle, I will find a way to survive. Poor planning may not be the final chapter in my story.

*Do Us Part is a novella, 16,000 words in length, and was the final volume of The Dumont Diaries, a 4-part series.

my thoughts new

“I was always his, and I finally believe that he is fully mine. To have. To hold. Till death. Do us part.”

I feel like I’m kind of twisted for loving Nathan Dumont but what can I do? He’s simply one of those characters that will hook me no matter how dark and strange they are. In this final novella of The Dumont Diaries, Alessandra Torre gave a gripping and satisfying finale that had me on the edge of my seat.

What I enjoyed most about this part was how Candy stood up for herself and found a way to up her game and secure her future. I also loved the conclusion when it comes to the romance and the whole story itself. It was the ending that I was hoping for. All in all, it was a fantastic, twisted, sexy book. The series was well-written and quickly engaging. A classic Alessandra Torre masterpiece!

Synopsis new

I step on the dark stage, the cheap plastic of my platforms cutting into the top of my toes, every step bringing a pinch of pain. I keep my eyes down, following the flecks of silver on the unforgiving stage, waiting, exhaling a breath in controlled anticipation, my abs tightening. Then, the lights come on and I have almost three minutes to forget.

Welcome to my life, a drained bank account and six nights a week spinning around a greasy strip club pole. When salvation comes in the form of six feet of drop-dead-gorgeous, complete with a limo and a thick wad of cash, my stilettos run happily out the door to freedom. They say that money doesn’t buy happiness. But it does buy escape. Happiness is an overrated fairytale.

*To Have is a novella, 15,000 words in length, and was part 1 of a 4-part series. Their titles are:

To Have
To Hold
Till Death
Do Us Part

my thoughts new

Expect a beautifully written story when you’re reading an Alessandra Torre book.

To Have is the first part of The Dumont Diaries novella series. It’s an easy and quick read that introduces the flawed heroine Candy. Candy is a stripper at a gentleman’s club. She actually went to college and finished a degree before she went stripping but because she wasn’t able to land a job, she resorted into stripping in order to sustain her needs and to survive in a strange city she lives in. Her life unexpectedly changed when she met the blue-eyed, filthy rich mysterious man who asked her to privately dance for him but later on offered a deal that she could either accept or refuse.

I loved how gripping and all-consuming this story was. I totally connected to Candy as well as with Mr. Dumont. There was an intensity between these characters that sucked me in. Mr. Dumont’s air of mystery also intrigued me, I want to know more about this Alpha man in the next novellas.

Also, this story speaks reality. Anyone who is put in a situation that does not sit well with the society doesn’t deserve to be judged.

“I can understand your judgment. I know that I am a prostitute. I’m not proud of it..”

I also loved the intimate scenes shared by the characters in this book. They were certainly intense and oh, so hot!

All in all it was a very interesting introduction to The Dumont Diaries. I’m definitely digging this series!
