The man was sinful. It wasn't just the looks that made him dangerous, it was the cocky confidence that dominated every move, every touch. And the frustrating yet ecstatic fact about the whole package was that he could back it all up...
Julia Campbell never knows what to expect with win-at-all-costs Brad De Luca. And she's starting to like it that way. She gave up safe, conv

MASKED INNOCENCE has been REDUCED on for a very short time. Grab it!

This is not a conventional love story. It's erotic, it pushes boundaries.... It's kinky lovely... It takes me to another world, one I would never go to in real life, but it's fiction and I get to sample the delight through the characters, ones that have been lovingly developed until they appear as real as you or me.

Sweet Mother of God, Brad de Fucking Luca, come to Momma. NOW! First book in this series was an OK read for me, a 3.5 stars - if I was an author would I be happy with a 3.5 - I would like to think so. But it had a lot of 4 and 5 star reviews from friends. It was a good enough read that I wanted to continue the story of Brad and Julia.

This book picks up right where Blindfold Innocence ended. You know that Brad doesn't do normal. He needs more from sex and Julia has found out that she likes Brad's fetish. The last scene in Blindfold Innocence was "off the chart sizzling" and Julia loved it and has now embarked on a relationship with the super sexy, super suave, super charismatic Mr. DeLuca.

Devouring Brad De Luca. Hot damn!

Masked Innocence picks up on the heels of Blindfolded Innocence. If you haven't read that, stop reading as this will contain mild spoilers for that book.

Brad has admitted his feelings for Julia, but also his hang-ups on committing to sex with one person for the rest of his life. Complete monogamy is not his thing...but a bit of swinging with Julia present is perfection. It's his kink and after the scene at the end of Blindfolded Innocence, Julia can definitely

I was honored to read an ARC of this book! This book... I'm feeling a little speechless at the moment.

I was completely enthralled with this story and these characters in Blindfolded Innocence. I had my assumptions as to where the story would go in this sequel but I could not have been more wrong, and I could not be happier that I was!

Blindfolded Innocence left off with Julia embracing this lifestyle that Brad insisted was necessary in order for them to begin to pursue a relationship together. Th

This series gets better and better with each book!

After having spent time in Brad's head ( The Diary of Brad De Luca ), I couldn't wait to dive into book 2 to see what happens next with one of my favorite heroes!

Alessandra didn't disappoint with this installment!

Let's see:

Super sexy with out of the box views on sex male lead ...

Strong-willed heroine with an open mind when it comes to the super sexy with out of the box vews on sex male lead ...

Storyline with a few great twists thrown in ...

Fucking brilliant! I've read the first book last year and liked it a lot, but there was no way I could've thought that it would take this turn.

It had it all, romance, suspense, mystery, humor, out of this world hot sex scenes and even a murder. My favorite combination.

I'm off to read the next book in the trilogy. Goddamn cliffhangers! I hate that I love them.

Mr Brad De Luca is back...

First of all this starts off exactly where Blindfold Innocence finishes.
Brad says he doesn't do love. He's happy to give this relationship with Julia a try and he's very honest with her from the start...this is never going to be a conventional relationship. Will his feelings change once they both become entangled in murder and Mafia crime?
Brad knows that maybe he will need to do a lot more to keep Julia safe.

What really do we know about Brad.

Brad and Julia need to keep their relationship a secret. Julia especially wants to keep it quiet, not wanting the backlash in the office with her being an intern. Julia's feelings for Brad have developed to the point where she is bursting with love for him.

Brad is realizing that he can't be without Julia either. He can't get enough of her. Plus, he is enjoying bringing out her deepest, darkest desires behind closed doors.

I felt like I was waiting years for this book! After reading and really liking Blindfolded Innocence, I was anxiously anticipating the continuation of Brad and Julia's story. So a year and a half later, gheesh! I got it.
So was the anticipation worth it? Yes and no.

I liked many things about this book. It's steamy but the sex doesn't take up most of the story. There is an actual plot there and it's interesting in its own right. Brad is an enigma. He's a mysterious and difficult

5 Delicious De Luca Stars!

Masked Innocence begins just where Blindfold Innocence leaves off; Brad and Julia are willing to take a chance to see where this relationship will go. He'll be faithful (when they are not sharing each other's bodies with a stranger), she'll be willing to try his sexual lifestyle. But this story doesn't stay focused solely on their bedroom activities. As they both navigate a relationship that can either be enough to fulfill both their desires, or be something that ruins

5 Stars

This is not your typical normal love story. This will bring you to different kind of relationship that I never think possible in real life,especially to me, but gonna admit, i enjoyed reading every page of it.

Julia and Brad, is the same amazing couple as they are in book one. I love that their relationship was established out of understanding and trust to each other. Maybe because of age difference, but I like them more in this book. Julia is still feisty and funny at times, sometimes I'

I won a copy of this paperback through a Goodreads giveaway and was super excited to start it . (Thank you to the host of the giveaway. I think it was Harlequin. Its always nice to win books).

I really liked the first book in the series. But got mixed feelings about this second book.

The story picked up pretty much right at the end of book 1.

For the things I liked:

It was nicely written and there's no doubt that AT knows how to write steamy scenes. Very steamy party in the first of the book.

I almost gave up this book, but finally nearly halfway thru the plot changed. Yet this story was okie read as things moved really fast here.

To continue with the emoticon theme I had in my review for Blindfolded Innocence, my feelings towards Masked Innocence are best represented with:


Yes, fortunately, I enjoyed this installment much better than the previous one. Most of the issues I had with the characters and the story in book one were gone in this one, so I was able to read without wanting to slap, scratch or punch them, which was a relief, and a proof I was right to choose to continue with the series.

Julia was much more likeable.
***4.5 Masked Innocence Stars***

Masked Innocence is the sequel of Blindfolded Innocence and it picks off where it last left off. Brad De Luca and Julia Campbell are back and HOTTER than ever!! Ms. Torre took Masked Innocence to another level of sexy. Brad wants Julia. She wants Brad but she must be willing to let go of her inhibitions and embrace this new found sexuality Brad wants them as a couple to explore. Goodbye innocent Julia and say hello to the new Julia: confident, sexy, and open-minde

“I fell for the feisty, smart-ass Julia that calls me on my shit. But I’m owned by the vixen that you become behind closed doors.”

Yes Sir! I’m still riding the Alessandra Torre wave :)

Masked Innocence is the sequel to Blindfolded Innocence (which was my first 5 star read of the year!) and it starts right where the latter left off. Julia is finally letting go of her inhibitions… She wants Brad, and to have him, she has to be open to things she never contemplated before…

Their relationship is going
**ARC generously provided by publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

Brad DeLuca is back in a big way in Masked Innocence. This second installment is better for me than the first was for all except one reason. Brad and Julia are back and just like at the end of the first book, Julia totally steps up. She is a much better heroine in this book. Julia is committed to making this relationship work, totally open sexually, and her attitude about his lifestyle has taken a better turn.
Really!?! Only One Orgy? WTH

I wish I could give this book more than 5 stars!

Alessandra really exceeded every expectation I had for this book! I was expecting tons of sex in this book since Brad has opened Julia up to his sexual preferences (view spoiler)
