“While I can’t say this is one of my favorite books by Ms. Torre, I will say that it’s an unconventional one and I can only give her props for choosing to try different things in her stories.”
~ Under the Covers

If there is one thing I know I can count on when I crack open an Alessandra Torre book is that I’ll get an original story.  And sometimes that originality works better for me than others.  HIDDEN SEAMS I think falls somewhere in the middle.  I liked things about it.  Some of them even had me glued to the pages with wide eyed fascination and maybe a little uncomfortable.  Some I just couldn’t connect with because there are things I just don’t get.

Our hero has been in a publicly gay relationship with a famous fashion designer for ten years.  And now after his death and when Marco is set to inherit that fashion empire and finally be able to have all the liberties he wanted in the company and access to all that fortune, there may be a wrench on the road.  Avery.

I don’t want to give you guys many details because I always feel Ms. Torre’s books are better experienced and some things that may not seem like spoilers can diminish the enjoyment of the book.  So suffice it to say this story is unexpected.  I probably liked Avery more than Marco because I could understand her motivations and thought process more. I just couldn’t put myself in Marcos’ shoes and get to the same conclusions, the same decisions he made.  While I found him extremely sexy when it came down to that, I didn’t sympathize with him.

Avery on the other hand is just a broken girl looking for her place in the world and you can’t help but feel for her.  She was given up at birth, adopted by a couple that realized later on they weren’t really all that interested in raising a child.  She ran away from home and has been searching for her birth parents since, surviving the best way she can and hustling.

While I can’t say this is one of my favorite books by Ms. Torre, I will say that it’s an unconventional one and I can only give her props for choosing to try different things in her stories.  I am never bored when I read them.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
