From New York Times bestselling author Alessandra Torre...

Chloe Madison. That's me. A former NYU princess who just fell from grace, right off my pampered Manhattan throne and onto the unforgiving steps of Nicole Brantley, socialite and queen bitch. Now, I walk her dog and mix her smoothies. Try to navigate my own problems while fixing all of hers.

I want what every New York girl wants. A career, an apartment, and true love, preferably in a smoking hot package.

It turns out I'll have to fight for all of it.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
PRAISE FOR HOLLYWOOD DIRT:

"Torre's contemporary romance is a true hit." — RT Book Reviews

"Hollywood Dirt was the real thing—pure contemporary romance at its finest. Effortlessly told, entertaining, and so very swoon-worthy. It's not to be missed!!!"—Kim Karr, New York Times bestselling author

PRAISE FOR THE GIRL IN 6E:
"The Girl in 6E uniquely twisted and captivates from the beginning. The premise is entirely original, as are the characters and the pacing. The main character may be a cold killer, but inside is a woman with a soul who sacrifices everything to keep from unleashing herself on the world.... Torre has written a beautifully warped thriller that will be staying with this reviewer for a long time to come."―RT Book Reviews, Top Pick! (4.5 stars)

"A.R. Torre's The Girl in 6E lifts the veil on the dark, erotic world of camming, but the book contains so many more surprises than that. At the novel's core, a tender heart beats, and the increasingly suspenseful pages fly by as its deepest secrets are revealed. This is a taut, edgy, thrill ride, powerfully gripping and impossible to turn away from." —David Bell, author of Never Come Back and Cemetery Girl

"An incredible debut. Gritty, unique, primal, full of angst, oddly feminist, and right up my alley. The Girl in 6E deviates from formulaic romance to deliver something truly special and worthy of praise and attention. A dark soul like me isn't often surprised by controversy or taboo subject matter, but this book delivers and I'll be reading more A.R. Torre books in the future. Kudos!" —CJ Roberts, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Dark Duet

"Dark, edgy, and thrilling in a completely unexpected way." —Lisa Renee Jones, New York Times bestselling author of The Inside Out series

This book was just plain FUN!!! Chloe was hilarious and Carter was swoon worthy. If you need a book to get away from it all...this is it!

Once again I'm blown away by her work, loved this story, fell in love with the characters, and wished it went on and on! Can't wait for her next book!

This book was a fun, flirty, sassy ride. Chloe was a complex character - sometimes I wanted to smack her; she was a bit entitled- but you get over it. This was about a girl finding herself in New York and I enjoyed it tremendously.

Chloe goes through a transformation and takes us along for the ride. On the way we meet a rich cast of characters, some you love, some you hate. Wonderful storytelling with all the feels. If you love AT, you'll like this light, flirty, romance.

★★ 4.5 stars! ★★ Well, that was a fun ride! I loved everything about Love, Chloe. As you would expect from an Alessandra Torre book, the writing is flawless and well developed. The story drew me in from the first page and I read the rest of the book in one sitting. When Chloe loses her family’s money (with an FBI raid, no less!), she ends up couch surfing and struggling to make ends meet. She lands a job with C-list actress Nicole Brantley as an assistant/dog nanny, which brings in money, but also the humiliation of seeing how far she has fallen down the social ladder. Following a string of bad luck, Chloe finally starts to see that she has to actually work, and work hard, to rebuild her life from the ground up. She questions every belief and motivation she may have held before losing everything. After a lot of soul-searching, she is finally able to find love. The reward as a reader is fun, sweet, and sexy. Yes, Love, Chloe is a ‘poor little rich girl’ story, but that is only one part of the whole. It’s also about her journey into adulthood, her learning to navigate the real world, and it’s about realizing that money can’t buy true happiness. There are some tough life-lessons, but each one is handled with Torre’s skilled finesse. As with Hollywood Dirt, I love seeing the lighter side of Alessandra Torre’s work. It just works for me and I am looking forward to more.

Creative, Cute, Contemporary Romance I adored Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre. It’s an uplifting contemporary romance with a smattering of humor. I loved that each chapter started with one of Chloe’s Instagram posts. Each one has something to do with what is happening in the chapter. The photos were a personal touch that made Chloe feel like a friend. It was tempting to try to “like” the Instagram posts! Love, Chloe is filled with dynamic characters, each of whom enrich the story: Chloe has fallen from grace, and instead of wallowing in self-pity and returning to a bad ex-boyfriend just for his financial security, she attacks her problems head on. She grows from a snobbish, indulgent girl to a very likable, grounded woman. I loved her transformation Vic—philandering ex-boyfriend who probably sees winning Chloe back as a challenge. Aside from his money, I cannot imagine why she ever put up with him! Maybe it’s a reflection of her relationship role models: her parents. Speaking of the parents…what losers! They’re part of a Madoff-like Ponzie scheme and their unscrupulous business dealings have left Chloe destitute. Mom and dad are completely incapable of parenting beyond providing a black AmEx. Carter is the swoon-worthy “super” of Chloe’s apartment building. He’s a nice, blue-collar guy with some very opinionated parents. Joey—movie star with a big ego. Didn’t like him much at the start, but he redeems himself by the end of the book. Cammie and Benta are college friends chosen for superficial reasons but they remain loyal to Chloe even after her financial ruin. I appreciated their loyalty, but a couple pot-calling-kettle-black comments made the hair rise on my neck. Hannah is a new friend from the movie studio. I really liked her; she is efficient, helpful and doesn’t ask for anything in return. The sort of friend everyone needs in a new job setting. Nicole Brantley is a self-centered, entitled socialite. She is a mirror in which Chloe sees her former self in all its ugliness as well as Chloe’s inspiration for how NOT to behave. Clarke Brantley is handsome, patient, loyal; he is an excellent male role model for Chloe. Love, Chloe by Alessandra Torre is extremely engaging. I enjoyed seeing NYC and its inhabitants through Chloe’s eyes. Torre’s writing style made me feel like I was a part of Chloe’s story. This is a great “pick yourself up” story that is told in first person narrative. I enjoyed the starting-over-again premise. Chloe has a lot of “Murphy’s Law” moments, some are slightly humorous, some were heartbreaking, and the self-created problems were aggravating. It felt like Chloe could not get a break regardless of how diligently she worked and planned. My heart went out to her with every hurdle, but with each problem, Chloe gets closer to the realization that her former entitled life didn’t provide much of what she really needs. While Chloe is paying penance for her parents’ sins, she is also embarking on a year-long transformation into the woman she would like to be. Her eventual epiphany leads her to something money can’t buy: self-worth and love.
