Hidden Seams by Alessandra Torre is nothing that I expected it to be. I was expecting immense sexual tension and angsty hate-love moments, but what I got is a romance that had much more depth, examining ideas of reputation, fulfillment in relationships and much more.
Marco might be my favorite Torre hero. This lovable gruff man has such a soft side, and every time he showed it, I felt myself fall for him a bit more. Even as he tries to recapture life for himself, his loyalty and love of Vince is ever present, resulting in him being one of the most loyal and thoughtful heroes I can remember in a very long time. Even as he chases his own dreams and Avery, he is ever conscious of the man who gave him ten years of opportunities & mentoring. By the end of this novel, I love the man he became, this mashup of who he was with Vince and who he is with Avery.
Avery is such a phenomenal heroine. I love the motivation behind her job, and it makes her honorable in my eyes. Her quest to find family, someone who loves her for who she is without change, drives her for most of the novel. There is no ulterior motivation for her going to NY, which only makes her character better.
The chemistry between these two, physically and emotionally, is electric. I love the intimate moments after they got physical as much as the when they did. These two just clicked, and I could feel every heated moment that passes between them.
This story from the opening intrigued me with concept of a man who spent a good portion of his life pretending to be gay. The opening scene begins with heartbreak and then the floundering of a man who is lost and grieving, automatically connecting the audience with the hero. Just like him, the opening moments with the heroine show that she is searching for something similar. Her potential claim to the Horace empire provides the conflict between the two, and there is a lot of anger thrown between them. The conflict, however, is resolved pretty quickly, and the final moments of the book, while heartwarming are glossed over. I wanted more details about those moments, which I guess is really a sign that I enjoyed the book if I wanted more.
Hidden Seams is impeccably written, the characters are some of my favorites, and the pursuit of family and love are topics that will resonate with many readers, making Hidden Seams another fantastic read.
A billion-dollar fashion empire, and it’s about to be mine…
I’ve worked a decade for this. I’ve sold my soul and my reputation. I’ve lived a lie, smiled for the cameras, and hated myself, all for this inheritance.
And then … she pops up. A mysterious heir with a rap sheet, combat boots, and a mouth that I want to pin shut with my—
It doesn’t matter. I’ve played this game for a decade. I can continue the charade a little longer, keep my hands to myself and her body out of my mind. I can keep my secret until the ink dries and everything is mine.
