Blindfolded Innocence by Alessandra Torre
"I'm not sure what you have been told about me, but I'm not nearly as bad as they make me out to be." His deliciously deep voice carried a little bit of ego.
I'm sure you are exactly as bad as they make you out to be….
Brad De Luca is used to getting whatever and whomever he wants. The premier divorce attorney in town, he's a playboy who's bedded half the city—including his own clients. And when the newest intern at his firm poses a challenge, his seductive prowess goes into overdrive.
Pre-law student Julia Campbell is fresh off a failed engagement and happy with her new independence. Even if she weren't warned away from Brad at every turn, she'd know he was bad news. The last thing she needs is a man who could destroy her job prospects, not to mention her innocence. But before she knows it, the incorrigible charmer has her under his spell. His deviant tastes plunge her deep into a forbidden world of sexual exploration…but her heart may not survive the fall.
This month, I have been on an Alessandra Torre reading binge. Chances are, if she's written it, I've read it this month. The Innocence trilogy is the first non-standalone that I have read by her. Based on how much I loved Blindfolded Innocence, I'm sure that I will love the rest of the trilogy.
I loved the main character, Julia. I admired her attitude. I also admired her open mind. Brad challenged her to try many new things. She never once backed down. She met each and every challenge head on, even if she had to find interesting ways to do it. The seafood at the restaurant was a personal favorite of mine. It had me laughing for quite a while, and still makes me laugh days after I read it. I'm not even sure where to start with Brad DeLuca. He was a complete jerk, yet he was very swoonworthy. I fell for him the same way that Julia did.
I think the Innocence trilogy would be perfect for fans of Fifty Shades of Grey. In fact, I've read the entire Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy and enjoyed it. Based on Blindfolded Innocence, I think that this trilogy is going to be so much better than Fifty Shades. The sex scenes are off the charts hot. The romance is genuine and is easy to relate to. I recommend this book to all Fifty Shades fans looking for something bigger and better.
I give Blindfolded Innocence: 4/5.
