Tour & Review(s) Private Message & Private Show by Danielle Torella

Tess has just discovered sex. And now, she’s about to discover sex as a weapon.
The Seattle barista and art student is happy with her beautiful Brit boyfriend, Ben — especially in the bedroom. But while Ben’s her first, she’s hardly his. And Ben’s sexual history seems to be popping up in Tess’s face like something out of a zombie movie, and it has her questioning his commitment — and questioning whether his appealing alpha maleness is just a cover for a controlling personality.
Maybe one that’s meant to keep her from asking too many questions.
Is Ben the problem, or is everybody from his past the problem?
Tess is asking the questions, and pushing hard for answers.
Is Nicole, the ex-fiancĂ© who cheated on Ben, trying to worm her way back into his life? Was there something between Ben and Tess’s best friend, Erin? Or what’s going on with Ben’s adored teenage sister, Caroline, and Ben’s best friend Dan? And how did Ben get Tess a job interview with Mr. Andrews, his sophisticated but slimy boss at the music magazine?
As Tess comes to learn, relationships — especially sexual ones — are as much about power as love. With each new discovery, she finds herself in a struggle to hold her head together as much as her heart.
And to find where her own power lies.

I smack him. Hard.
He stumbles back in pure shock and I was able to turn his head with my swing. I once again have an audience in a Starbucks. Damn … I better stop this, before I can no longer show my face in another one… He looks back at me and he looks pissed. Oh, shit. He closes his eyes stretches his neck and I can see him push his tongue to the left side of his cheek, making it look like he has a ball in his mouth.
He takes in a deep breath, points at me and says, “You’d better keep quiet, unless you want to hear all about what Ben’s been up to.”
Whew. I thought for a second there he was going to hit me back. Wait, what does he mean about what Ben’s been up to? I take a look around the shop and people quickly turn away. I am so pissed off and my wrist is killing me. I grab my jacket and bag and head out the door myself.
Hi! I am Danielle live in Western New York with my husband and two sons. I never knew I had a dream to become a writer until I started becoming obsessed with reading in the last two years. The obsession began with Twilight and then matured to Fifty Shades. While used to reading mainstream best sellers, found a new love for indie authors. I love to do paintings related to the books I read and eventually turning into Pushy Girl Paintings and now do work for other indie writers and readers. My first book idea started from a dream I had one night and became obsessed with the story and started writing. Now having arguments with the people in my head and loving every moment of it, even when they take control of the story.

My Review:
A very different, fun and sexy story that many fans of the genre will enjoy!

Tess is a student, artist, barista and a very independent young lady. There's many things she’s yet to have experienced in life. But many others she has. She does not date or go searching for "Mr. Right". She's smart and focused on what she needs to be focused on like becoming successful by studying hard and working to make ends meet. Some of her  outlook on life changes when she meets the biggest player EVER who is also the sexiest man she's ever lay her eyes on, Ben...

 Ben has all that he wants and needs in his life. He DOES NOT need a relationship with any ladies because he gets what he wants with just a look or a word. But that outlook of his sure changes once he meets Tess. Oh boy does it ever :)

A good start to a new series and I look forward to the continuation! A 3.5 rating rounded to a solid 4.

My Review:
I LOVE this series, the story, the characters and the writing. But the ending PISSED ME OFF! It's still a great read that all fans of the genre will enjoy. All ends from the start of the series are covered as a good series should be done. Definitely not a stand alone read. You have got to read book one (Private Message) to truly understand and appreciate the relationship growth, etc. So be sure to do that before reading Private Show. 

Ben and Tess have come a long way. More ups than downs, but those downs are real bummers. Luckily they're both patient and trustworthy people that actually SEE truth, what's real and what's not. They both also know that what's from the past is just that, past and best left there. We get to see this couple grow even more in this book. But of course not without a bit of drama and jealousy from those that just can't help themselves but be stupid fools *sigh*

I look forward to much more from this author in the very near future. Love her writing style, her characters and all around everything...
