BLOG TOUR & BOOK REVIEW: Double Down by Alessandra Torre

Double Down

By Alessandra Torre

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Cover Design: Najla Qamber Designs



In Vegas, there was one man who was off limits. One man… and I fell for him.

I knew there were risks. Still, I played the game. When Dario Capece called, I answered. When he beckoned, I came. When he broke all my rules, I looked the other way.

I knew there were risks. I just never realized they included death.

Melanie’s Review:

A heart pounding follow up to Even Money, Alessandra Torre once again takes us in a roller coaster of a ride filled with suspense and romance. As you all remember, we were left with our jaws on the floor at the end of Even Money so I was wary when I found the start of Double Down a bit slow– the sound and feel of it not quite reminiscent to how Even Money made me feel from start to finish. However, the pace started to once again pick up as soon as Dario and Bell were reunited and from there forward, I was HOOKED!

There’s something so brilliant about Ms. Torre’s writing. I love that she intertwines stories within stories outside of her main characters. It makes readers minds go all over the place, trying to solve the what, who, and when. With sweaty palms and an entirely too overactive heartbeat, I was drawn not only to uncover what was to come for Dario and Bell but also for Claudia. What was to come for the sinister yet mistreated antagonist? So many questions, so few answers. I really do hope that we see more of her in future books because it’s driving me wild not having some solid answers. If this was Ms. Torre’s intent, then she played it well. 🙂

As for Dario and Bell, I loved how their relationship grew into something so beautiful. I love how solid and genuine their feelings were for each other. They never once gave up on one another. It proved that everything they had to undergo to be together was worth it. Their chemistry never once ebbed– their hunger could only by sated by the other. Oh man, Alessandra Torre sure knows how to write up some sexy scenes. Double Down had no shortage of them and you will be thrilled about it.

This duet was just another reminder of why I love this author so much. Her characters are always strong, her writing bold and complex. There’s no doubt that when you pick up one of her books that you’ll be entertained and always wanting for more. I can’t wait to see what she has in store next.
