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) but I have to say he really grew on me by the end I loved DeLuca! I think he's one of those characters you have to learn about completely before you can really star

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?

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.


Okay so hero meets heroine. . .eventually. . . around 25% of the book I think. . . which is a big no-

“My internship at Clarke, De Luca & Broward

I 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.

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,
where 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….

I’m going to need a cold shower and a motherfucking cigarette now after reading this book.

I haven't read a story like this in forever and it was such an awesome change.

I’m going to keep this short and sweet because I’m wetting myself with anntispation to read the next one.


Cocks and nipples everywhere. I had myself a lovely time.

The story was captivating from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down.

“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.”

My very first Alessandra Torre book and it was goooooooooood. Surprising, witty, naughty and all around immensely satisfying.

From the first page I was pleasantly surprised by the cheeky writing style. It just speaks to me and felt very natural to read...almost like being in my own head. I'm the queen of witty comments, if you didn't know that already

I must say for certain that when I start an Alessandra Torre book, I am going to have one hot damn, incredibly sexy read!!

We start with Julia Campbell, a college intern at a law office. She's only 21 and well she's young, beautiful, sassy and a little full of herself but I have to say I loved her. There are rumors of all the partners and what they are like. She gets stuck with Mr. Work-a-holic but Julia is smart and driven and wants a good recommendation for law schools so she suc

Favorite Characters - Julia

Okay so this is one of those books where i know people will be like "it is another 50SOG" it is not though. Here is why; no contract, no virginal vanilla lead female, no BDSM, no horrible childhoods & no anal plug/sex.
Yes the dude is rich, a bit controlling and into kinkiness but it is not Christian kink it is different kink

"How do we know we aren't the person we both are searching for?"

I was completely hooked the first 20 percent of this story. I was enjoying the idea of our young intern and the forbidden whore law firm partner. When Brad DeLuca talks Julia into going to Vegas with him and their interaction began I didn't feel any true connection. It took me to the end of the story to decide whether or not I liked it.

Rule 1:She is kept blindfolded for the first meeting.If the blindfold is to be taken off,it must be done by her alone.


There are stories that you think you can breeze your way through.
There are stories that you feel connected to the characters.
There are stories that remind you of personal experiences.
And then there are stories like Blindfolded Innocence.

Don't shoot!
I know a lot of you loved this book. And a lot of you loved De Luca. But I didn't..


In fact this book just hit one of my major pet peeves and that made me kinda mad.
Add to the fact that a law student from a middle class family, with student debt, has an insane amount of shoes and outfits from major brands, referenced her Inner Goddess(albeit only once), had a debate for her old self and new self, and that was enough for me not to like it much.

It started ok, I really liked

"What if what we're looking for is each other?"


I think the only reason why I decided to pick this one up is because Brad De Luca was mentioned in Hollywood Dirt. Now I'm not sure if you were supposed to read this one first, or Hollywood Dirt, because reading that one first before this one, I already know that Brad and Julia get married. So really there isn't any point in reading this except if you're curious as to how they met. Anyways, I loved Brad when he represented Cole in his divorce in HD

Their forbidden office 'romance' kicks in when Mr. De Luca is intrigued by the new intern working for his law partner. Julia is excited for her internship at the law firm even though it means she will be stuck working for the law partner who likes to put in long hours.

Already warned to stay away from the law firm's star Divorce Attorney, Brad De Luca, Julia begins her long days and even longer nights wondering more and more about the man behind the double doors.

I just finished reading another one of Alessandra Torre's books in which Brad DeLuca's character played a small role as a divorce attorney. Let me clarify, his role may have been small but his presence was massive. I had to keep reminding myself who the main character was. To avoid spoilers, I usually wait until after finishing a book to read reviews and that's when I realized there is a whole series dedicated to DeLuca.

This was a reread for me (my original review for this edition: Blindfolded Innocence (Innocence, #1) by Alessandra Torre below).

When I first read this book back in August 2012, I wasn't aware that it was going to have a sequel/be part of the series. When I was finished, I was kind of left scratching my head because the ending seemed too abrupt and definitely left me wanting more.

I also didn't care for Julia [at all!] first time around so, after having finished books 2 and 3 in the series and becoming a fan of hers, I wanted to rerea

Dear Brad,

You are a dirty man and I like it! When I first saw you, I thought you were impossibly handsome and sex just oozed from your pores. After trying to resist, my lust conquered pragmatism and we had quite an enjoyable trip to Vegas. We gambled, I made new friend named Montana and did some other things. As you said to me, "When you do decide to let me f@ck your sweet little body, I will make you bad. Very bad." Point to Brad! Then you proposed an intriguing noti

I admit, I bought this book for no other reason than the stare-at-me cover. It isn't a romance. Not in the traditional sense. If you aren't able to sympathize with the swinger lifestyle, if you hold tight to monogamous ideals, or if you consider yourself the jealous type, then you won't enjoy this book. To everyone else, don't pass this up. It's an intelligently-written sexy story with lots of law office drama.
