    HIDDEN SEAMS: is a standalone romance novel by Alessandra Torre. Spoken in ‘Dual Perspectives’ In this we meet Marco and Avery. I’ve only read one other by this author but have always had it in the back of my mind to read more of her books so when I saw this come up for review I jumped on it and I am so freaking glad I did.Marco Lent is such a complex confusing man, is he straight? Is he gay? What’s his real story? Marco has many layers ...

    Going into this book, I had read a few reviews, so I thought I knew what to expect. I should know that I shouldn’t always think I know...... I do know that when reading this author, you can know you will get exceptional writing. And I got passion. And a lot of sexiness. And amazing writing. This story begins over 10 years earlier showing us how Marco made a deal that would forever change his life. Did I like the agreement??? Not necessarily. Di...

    If you know me, you know by now that I rarely give out 5 stars. You could also call me extremely picky as well as hard to please in regards to books earning a 5 star rating from me. This week has been an unreal experience. After having my first 5 star book of the year (Ryan's Bed), I also read two amazing and captivating novels that came just shy of 5 stars. And now this...Alessandra Torre is an author that has surpassed my expectations again and...

    I had such a hard time to get into this story and if it weren't Alessandra Torre's book, I would have DNF'ed it already.The problem is, up until page 83 of a novel that is itself 283 pages long, the hero and the heroine DO NOT MEET!The hero does his thing, the heroine does her thing. We learn a lot about their very unusual lives. However, they do not meet for a long while; they do not even live in the same state. Well, being the romance lover I a...

    4 The Choices We Make Stars* * * * Spoiler Free- It's Live!!!Whenever I am writing a review for Alessandra Torre, I am Challenged.... Challenged because part of the draw in reading Torre is discovering everything as it is presented. We know from the blurb, Marco Lent has been part of the fashion industry. He was a new young designer who was driven with ambition. He had talent but all that anyone saw was his appearance. Handsome and chiseled, he w...

    As soon as I read the blurb for this book, I knew I would be hooked.I absolutely loved watching Marco and Avery fall in love. I love the transformation that he went through. Two completely different souls from different worlds brought together under most unusual circumstances and with that came banter and so much sexual tension but best of all, love! I thought both their voices were authentic. I really liked the fact that I could get Marco's pers...

    Hidden Seams was a brilliant story with many different sides to it. The main focus was, of course, the romance between Marco and Avery but then there was also the part of Avery trying to find out who she was, and Marco's struggle to keep his best friends secret. it all came together really well and that was my best part of the story for me.It's sounds crazy to say but these characters were better together because it was like they came alive with ...

    Be Bold.When I pick up a book by Alessandra Torre, I usually just go in blind. Mainly because she’s one of those authors who never gives me the same thing twice. I feel like there’s no point comparing her new work with the older, because it won’t compare. It will stand on its own. Which is what I did with Hidden Seams, went in blind, and I can happily say it did not disappoint.A man who has been putting on a charade for someone else for a d...

    4.5 'Be bold' Stars!ARC provided by the author via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Alessandra Torre is an exceptional author. Every single time she releases anything she always surprises her readers with something new but always in her unique style and touches. Her book blurbs draw me in every time and Hidden Seams was no exception. Again, Alessandra delivered an outstanding piece of writing that had my attention 100% of the time and m...

    **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**Hidden Seams was such a fun read, with amazing characters. I was in love with Avery from the start, she intrigued me so much and I just couldn't get enough of her. Alessandra writes the best characters, and she does an incredible job in hooking you into the story. I liked Marco as well, but not as much because he was awful a couple of times. There were a couple of scenes where I wanted to hit him f...

    I don't know what I expected when I started this! Firstly, what's up with the prologue, that was sort'a creepy, the guy seeing a girl across a bar, and well read it yourself, maybe you will not find it creepy!All I can say this book is all over the place, I tried and tried yesterday, but did not understand the storyline, I did not even understand what line of work the characters where doing, or was Marco gay or straight?  I probably needed to r...
  • Sharon ∞❥ is an emotional book junkie ❥∞
    4.5 ★'s I've always enjoyed Alessandra Torre's books but I was a bit shocked that not many of my Goodreads friends have read this story. That's always a confusing sign for me but I decided to take the chance and I'm so glad I did. Ten years ago, Marco was a fledgling fashion designer and he took a deal offered to him by an older, much more established and successful designer to be his pretend gay partner. And for the most part, things worked ou...

    What’s better than seeing the fashion world from a different perspective ? Being in that world and having a rival to rival ALL rivals! There’s this saying: you want something sexy, go to a lingerie store, you want drama and passion? Read a good book. “Hidden Seams” gave you a taste of everything: money, power, greed, scandal, and one heck of a runway. Avery McKenna has been on her own for a very long time. Losing her parents and having...

    Like I ve stated in my reading status post, this story had an interesting concept, I didn't really know nor did I expect a 'certain' direction of unraveling of the plot.At first, I believed it would be a drama, then I figured it didn't 'deal' with the subject in the 'serious' way for it to be an actual drama....then, it was a romance, and well, Alessandra knows how to write a steamy romance, but it still wasn't believable enough nor emotionally d...

    3 StarsOverall Opinion: This was a unique story and I appreciated that. I just feel like there was so much else going on that the connection between the mcs felt lacking. I got the lust for sure -- but the progression into stronger feelings not so much. I have more wins than fails for this author so I'll continue reading her works, but it definitely wasn't my favorite of hers.Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Avery and Marco's story. Avery...
  • Jessica (Angie & Jessica's Dreamy Reads)
    I thought I knew what to expect in Hidden Seams going in, but if I've learned anything about Alessandra Torre over the years, it's that she's a master manipulator where her readers are concerned. She's brilliant at creating a story that is both captivating and confusing. She pushes boundaries and stretches the limits of one's comfort more and more with each new book. She toys with her readers, luring them in one direction only to halt them in the...
  • Sher❤ The Fabulous BookLover
    DNF @ 55%.I’m a huge Torre fan so it hurts to dnf this. I tried but I’m just not feeling this one for some reason. The storyline itself is good and it seems promising but I feel zero connection between the characters. Something is missing and I can’t put my finger on it. Maybe I’ll give it a try again someday but for now it’s going on the unfinished shelf😒😔
  • Deanna❤Pink Lady❤️
    There is nothing better than reading a book that hits major points ......unique storyline, sassy/quick banter, friends to enemies to lovers, hot and sexy romance, intrigue and an epilogue. Hidden Seams was all that and more.What I found so refreshing was the ease at which this story read. Marco Lent, the sexy, beautiful, sex on a stick man that seems to have it all until he doesn’t. Avery McKenna the spit fire, fierce, beautiful woman who needs...
  • Khadidja
    I'm disappointed! i have been a fan of A.R Torre for years, she writes incredible stories, but Hidden seams is not her best work. Everything about the plot is Meh.. there's no chemistry between the two main characters which made it incredibly awkward! it's just not my cuppa.

    4.5 fashionable stars...yet another TERRIFIC tale by Torre! 😉. I love this woman and would read the alphabet if she published it; just sayin’. Hidden Seams is is a different tale with some fun twists and entertaining characters. I wish I knew Avery irl!
  • Kindling Micky
    Torre writes in multiple genres and I thought this was one of her quick, hot contemporary romances and it was, but with unusual circumstances and characterisation that set it apart a little from her others in this genre. As a result of this twist on circumstances, I enjoyed this more than I expected, especially the first 70% of the book.HIDDEN SEAMS explores family separated, searching and found alongside a connection that just shouldn’t ‘be...
  • Shabby BookBistroBlog
    It's such a fun, sassy, cheeky read, almost like the writer herself!I'm 💯 sure this one will be optioned for a movie, very soon. The story is so involving, I couldn't leave reading it ! Written so well, with a lot of research, I raced through it and disappointed that it ended too soon. I want more of Avery McKenna/Horace's adorable attempts to seduce Marco Lent, the very Gay other half of Vince Horace and I also want more of their roaring fire...

    I really didn’t like the hero, but I still give this book 4 stars, that’s say something about the quality of this story, isn’t it?I wouldn’t say the heroine safe the story, the hero with his unlikeable character made this story interesting too.I don’t know what to say about his agreement with his dead partner, a clever move? Grabbed it when’s it offer or a man without a moral and do absolutely everything to be on top of the game? You ...
