Blindfolded Innocence (Innocence, #1)

Blindfolded Innocence (Innocence, #1) 4 4.5 stars Blindfolded Innocence is a book I ve had on my kindle for YEARS I decided to listen to the audio version this week and I loved it This book took me out of my comfort zone There were parts I wasn t happy with the hero which is maybe the only reason it s not a 5 view spoiler VEGAS Come on Brad hide spoiler BLINDFOLDED INNOCENCE has been REDUCED for a very short period GRAB IT 5 Brad Delicious De Luca StarsMy internship at Clarke, De Luca Broward began on a Monday morning at 8.00amI adore the writing style of Alessandra Torre, she captures my imagination with her well thought out characters and stories, and of course, she writes the most delicious erotic and sexually gorgeous scenes They are divine Needless to say I ve been looking forward to this series immensely A few things were troubling me, would some activities go too far for my comfort levels Would they push my feels Would I find some aspects of this story a little too tricky Would Julia bug me In a nutshell, the answer is NO, NO, NO Somehow this author pushed my limits in a way I could totally accept and LOVE I LOVE this book I LOVE Brad And I love Julia The premiseJulia is a law student and has successfully secured an internship at a prestigious law firm It will look amazing on her CV and improve her future prospects Brad is one of the partners, he s older and has a reputation that proceeds him The attractive, female interns are kept away from Brad Blindfolded Innocence is the epitome of a character driven book with an amazing, erotic storyAnd I have lots of lovely feelings about ALL of it.Julia,our young ladyIf I m blunt, Julia, initially, appears to be a little cocky, self righteous, and too sure of herself, which I know could annoy some readers, but turn that on it s head and we have a confident, self assured young woman who has a plan for her life, knows what she wants and is not afraid to say it She s attractive and knows how to use her feminine ways to give herself a confidence boost from attracting the attention of me.I love Julia s dry sense of humour laced with sarcasm, there are a few great quips that really made me smile She has beliefs, morals, ideals Sex for her is an,emotional thing,and she will NOT give herself to just anyone.Will something or someone break Julia s resolve on this Deep down is she as proper as she portrays Does she have hidden desires that are yet to be discovered Brad De Luca The man reeked of masculinity and sex Brad is intoxicating, he s the definition of power, intelligence, sophistication and sexuality He exudes it It pours out of every fiber of his being He lights up the page with his charisma and looks. The idea of staying away from him seemed impossible, his charm, and sexuality too magnetic to resist Brad has certain tastes, certain proclivities some may not agree with his lifestyle choices but he makes no apologies for being the person he is He doesn t hide it from the people who count, there s no duplicity in his conduct, he s completely up front I live the life, Julia, the life I chose for myself The discussions about sex through Brad s eyes are very interesting, the slant he puts on societies perception of what is appropriate and acceptable, what is considered right and wrong, moral and immoral It s fascinating Brad s family history has undoubtedly had a lasting effect on his personality, his drive and determination Maybe even than we have yet discovered Brad JuliaThey are inexplicably drawn to each other, even though there are aspects within each of them that the other person should stay away from view spoiler What if what we re looking for is each other hide spoiler I m sorry but if you put a raunchy image of a chick butt naked and covering her vagina their on the front of the book, THEN that book should at least have some sexual tension in the first ten chapters.Was there No.Then what was there I got to learn a lot about her interning for a guy that wasn t the hero I found out some tidbits about the hero which isn t even important Boring Boring Boring.Okay so hero meets heroine.eventually around 25% of the book I think which is a big no no for romance books, because the PLOT is suppose to be in the entire book Meaning, the first chapter should give me, the reader, an indicator of what this book is about.This didn t do that I truthfully thought that this book was maybe about her journey as a law intern I kept checking the freakin cover over and over.Next problem I had with this book The Heroine is fact she s a cock teasing meh view spoiler she likes to meet strange men in a bar, go to their home, rub all over their penises until they want her, and then she leaves And she s all talking about how liberated that makes her hide spoiler 4.25 Stars Is that the only reason I m sitting here Because I m an intern in your firm, therefore off limits I invited you here because I enjoy spending time with you You challenge me and make me laugh And because every time I see you I want to rip your clothes off and put my hands on you. Why oh why did it take me so long to read this My first book by Allesandra Torre was Sex Love Repeat and I absolutely fell in love with her writing style I then went back and one clicked every single book by her, this included I wasn t sure what to expect going into this it being her debut book and having some mixed reviews I shouldn t have been concerned in the least I really can t go wrong with a book by this author Brad De Luca now has my pervy little heart in the palm of his hand But I digressJulia is a 21 year old Pre Law student that just landed an internship at one of the most prestigious law firms Fresh off a broken engagement, she s not looking to get wrapped up in a man again too soon, especially a manwhoring womanizer that every person at the firm warns her off of.The one thing I love about Alessandra s writing are her heroines Julia may be young and not exactly coming from a vast sexual experience, but she was no blushing ingenue She was feisty, sassy, and gave as good as she got.Brad De Luca is the firm s most successful divorce attorney He s used to getting what he wants, and he s not exactly lacking for women But when Julia continually denies his advances, he s intrigued He has to have her And let s face it, there s only so long that Julia can fight the incredible sexual pull between them.Julia doesn t believe in sex without love Brad doesn t believe that his perfect woman exists so why deny the pleasure of sex They share nothing in common except for the attraction that is slowly coming to a boil between them.But little by little Brad slowly chips away at Julia s doubts and Julia begins to see that she s not exactly the good girl that she once believed herself to be Brad is an enigma that she just can t seem to stay away from or quite figure out.So what is it that Brad wants from his women His kink That thing he wants that he doesn t think the type of woman he d want to marry will be able to give him Guess you ll just have to read it and find out Guess I m sadistic that way I m looking forward to learning about Brad and seeing where book two takes his relationship with Julia, because let me tell youthat scene at the end Good lord, gimme of that.Until the next bookARC courtesy of author via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review For reviews visit I ve had this book on my TBL for a while and somehow had forgotten about it until I read this author s fabulicious book, Hollywood Dirt, Brad de Luca plays a part in the story and I could not wait to begin reading his story.Blindfolded Innocence is the 1st book in the Innocence Series and it was such a sexy and entertaining read.Now I understand the magic of Brad de Luca let me just add that at first I thought this is a total wicked, sexy hunk but a dangerous man to fall in love with He loves to fuck, he loves women and he loves to..well, let s just say.that.he lives his life on his own rules Is this the type of man we want or are looking for Well, certainly not Julia Campbell, who joins Brad s firm as an intern And let s just say, he s not exactly her type after all, he is a bit old for her She just wants to get on with her work and finishing her law degree.being free is quite cool for her So what happens with a rather innocent girl of 21 falls for the charms of an experienced man of 34, who has some rather kinky tastes in sex Is any woman safe from Brad de Luca s charm and sexiness Not even Julia can resist him..but then she has quite an adventurous side that she has never explored And Brad de Luca is going to be the man to bring out her bad side..beginning by taking her for a weekend fling to Las Vegas Hell, that man knows how to impress a woman..a 4 tier seafood tower, champagne..letting her drive her own hire Viper convertible.Julia wants to experience everything in Vegas..and Brad gives in to her wishes.never mind that she is left alone with sexy Montana, plying her with drinks and getting down to seducing Julia whilst the audience applauds.never mind that during this new experience, Brad is busy in the office getting it off with another woman Jeez.this is what.Okay, so here I m thinking Brad de Luca is a total no no for any woman with brains but what I admired about him was his honesty He never tried to be anyone else but who he was He never lied about himself to Julia This is who and what I am..can you handle it or not I liked Julia.I had this idea that she would be stalking and pining for Brad but no this woman had balls She might be young but hell she s not going to give in on any other terms but hers Sexy, sassy and how could one not adore her and her love for Jimmy Choo I loved the writing, the humor, the dialogue and the sizzling sex and watching the relationship grown between the two instead of the insta love thing.I can t wait to get onto the next book..Brad s story What is it about this guy that is so addictive My favourite quote I m feeling too lazy to write a review. 4.5 Brad De Luca Stars no other description will do 1 2Spoiler Free Damn try being an intern at his law firm Get stuck with the boring, overloaded corporate cases while others just down the hallway are able to intern with the Divorce God Brad De Luca Women put their dissolving marriages on hold just to have him represent them and do all sorts of other things with him Brad is a force He enters a room and sucks all of the air out of it He is a little older but built with strong written all over his body back, thighs, arms and cock Everything a woman would want to touch, to taste and to handle her.He works hard and plays hard and he plays by his own rules Julia Campbell is said intern at the firm She is exactly the type Brad has been known to go after Pretty, young, 21 bright and has a sexual undercurrent She has not had many sexual partners and both were not satisfying, leading her to develop this idea that she could take it or leave it mostly teasing dates with her wanting control, then walking away Julia is told to stay totally, absolutely way from Brad De Luca Brad knows she is off limits and of course these directives work like a moth to flame.Brad pursues Julia, she says no He pursues her through lunches, meetings and then tempts her with a trip to Vegas where no one from the office will ever find out The pull of attraction proves too much for her and she goes with him.Things happen in Vegas that live up to the slogan Brad gives her many firsts orgasms, cigars, gambling and strip clubs to name a few What was most interesting and revealing was the discussion of love vs sex This was done with bantering smart, real concepts You felt the characters were pretty equal in the ability to spare with each other she maybe not as polished as him but she was not a push over She made her decisions on her terms and that was refreshing After the Vegas experience, they both go back to work pretending not to have had any type of contact It doesn t seem to be working for Brad, a first He clearly was moved from this experience He has decided to lay it out on the line with Julia present what it would be like to actually have a relationship with him what he likes and wants This book was a real pleasure for me I was interested from the start as there were little hints along the way at the beginning of each chapter to a type of sexual play I was alert to something happening in the future while the rest of the chapter gave me insight to the participants I liked always knew who the characters were what they thought and were not running away from how they felt about things Julia may have been young but wasn t a pushover for me She was sarcastic, cutting sometimes in her responses to Brad and willing to experience her life.The secondary characters were there supporting each other and we received a bit about them so their actions matched what we knew.Brad De Luca is the type of man every woman would like to experience at some point in her life at least I got to have him on the page.There is Brad coming and I cannot wait. Update 29th April 2014 review completed 5 Innocent but arousing stars Wow just wow This author is something else this oh this I m just going to say I loved it. Brad De luca is a well known, driven and excellent Divorce attorney, he s the best in Town He s also a highly sexual man and has slept with half the town including his clients, he s used to getting

that s what they re supposed to do This is all due to reputation Julia Campbell is working hard to get to her goal and to do that is wanting to gain respect from the firm that will get her to places she wants to go She is also confident in her sexuality and a tease to the men, she gets them, works them up then walk away So when she meets Brad she soon discovers how she should stay clear of him, she s way out of her depth, but there s that powerful pull that she just can t seem to stay away from His eyes were normal dark brown colour, not anything special, but they blazed with a powerful intensity He smelled of something I don t know how to describe the smell, but it was intoxicating and animal The man reeked of masculinity and sex Annnnnd there s too much of a magnetic pull no mater what her own attorney tells her she embarks on a journey that s forbidden but highly erotic, arousing, alluring and Intense Brad does not do relationships though and that s something that Julia has

hour work weeks Her friend Todd gets to intern for the hot and very famous divorce attorney Brad De Luca They won t put a female with Brad as he has a reputation of being a total man whore No mixing business with pleasure Innocent Julia combined with predator Brad Corporate Catastrophe So I seriously went into this book expecting a very erotic, smut filled storyline Not really I mean, don t get me wrong, there s hotness in the book but there s a great story that goes with it Brad is such an endearingly sweet character and Julia tough as nails It was refreshing So I started it anxiously thinking But really felt a bit eh, wanting Horny I mean, seriously BRAD IS DEVINE Rich, arrogant, successful and VERY open about what he wants and that is SEX Not love, no promises, no commitments He readily admits to a secret taste he has I taste he knows doesn t mesh with an innocent Julia And no it s no Red Room of Pain FSoG bullshit He wants her Bad But I seriously do not blame the woman for going from 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds around him Damn She fights it Yes she does but Brad is a tough one to resist Julia is no shrinking violet and is not only tough, but actually sometimes quite hurtful in her disgust for his lifestyle of debauchery But resist him she can t But does he take advantage of her weaknesses I m not sure why it took me so long to read this series I ve loved all things A Torre Her character development is what sucks me in You feel as if you know them personally and are invested in their story.not just a fuckathon Is this a love story Smut Erotica A bit of each It s a gradual build None of this insta love, or weak heroine stuff But still the irresistible arrogant man whore that I pray will soon find himself on his knees.claiming the four letter word he swears he will never succumb to Fingers crossed Moving on Cannot wait to get in his head with The Diary of Brad De Luca Word has it, Ms Torre is revamping this book, adding about 100 pages and heat This was the original version dammit More sex It d be 5 stars I m sure but I m not sure how it all plays out with their story And I thank you,
