“I am choosing to explain them to you because I hope to fuck you in the future--” he placed careful emphasis on the word fuck “--and I don’t want to do it with any misplaced expectations on your part.”

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) ...more

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

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….

We have Julia, a 21 year old intern who has been warned to stay away from Brad De Luca, one of the partners in the Law firm. But the attraction is there once they eventually meet. To be honest, sometimes Brad came across as bepersevered.

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.

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 sucks it up.

There is one partner that she is warned to stay away from. He is charismatic, the resident divorce attorney, known for sleeping with his clients and interns. There is no way that Julia would get drawn into a manwhore like that. No way, no how! But she meets him, bringing a file to his side of the office, just to see for herself who is the infamous Brad DeLuca.
 photo BradDeLuca_zps5e3cac6b.jpg

Looking into his eyes, I felt my knees buckle slightly. There was this draw to him, this indescribable pull that I couldn't break from. He emitted, even across the large office, a wave of power, intelligence ...and sexuality. No freaking wonder everyone talked about this man.

He had locked his ridiculously sexy stare on me and spoken softly, but with absolute confidence and conviction. I swallowed. I wanted this man so badly it hurt. Knowing I couldn't have him made it that much more delicious.

Julia, being young, is naïve but very confident herself. She will not allow this man to conquer her. She holds herself and so the chase begins. The one thing is that Brad DeLuca doesn't do is romance or commitments. He wants sex and when the friends with benefits runs dry, do does their "relationship". He is brutally honest about his feelings. He is always truthful to Julia and explains that he is who he is and nothing can change that. Julia believes that sex is an act for a committed relationship, once in love. She doesn't do casual sex and never has. Can Brad change her mind, can Julia see past her own convictions? Brad asks Julia to come to Las Vegas for the weekend. Just to get to know each other. She says no and no until her resolve falters. She tells him she is not sleeping with him. She has never been to Vegas before, what can be the harm?

Well, let me let you, what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. I can promise that it's everything you can imagine that happens in Vegas. Brad wines and dines her and as he is a high roller, so the Bellagio caters to his wishes. Julia is shown a great time as she is with him. They also do a "guys night". Julia wants to know and do what Brad would normally if he was with the guys. Well, that evening was pretty damn sexy, risqué and HOT. Some of Brad's sexual needs and desires are also unfolded.

He is such an enigma. Thoughtful and sweet at times, the perfect gentleman. Other times he was pure sexual temptation, able to soak my panties with a single look or touch. He was unapologetically honest about his love of women and sex, comfortable and unashamed of his conquests or lack of monogamy. I didn't know how to take it, didn't know what I wanted from him, other than the one overriding sexual desire that had been interfering with my common sense the moment we'd met.

They return from Vegas and their fun is over. They both go back to work and well 2 weeks pass and neither seeks the other out. But time and an another intern turn things around and well Julia seeks out Brad to let him have it. But they both have feelings for one another but Brad can't be the man Julia needs and wants. He has issues and needs someone who can deal with those issues. Can Julia be that woman or will it be her damnation? The one thing that she does know, is that she will try because this man has a hold on her and she owes it to herself to try.

If the night's experience was any indicator, this lifestyle, this arrangement, was something I could not only deal with, but could enjoy, could want, could need.

That ending......

sums it up pretty good. If you want a super sexy, downright panty melting read, open this book immediately and get ready to be wrapped up in the vortex of Brad and Julia. It will not disappoint.

*3.5 Mr. De Luca stars*

BLINDFOLDED INNOCENCE is a kinkier version of older rich guy meets younger more naive girl. 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.

Julia is very vanilla when it comes to sex being that she is only 21 years old and has had only two boyfriends in her lifetimes.

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.

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 reread this one and s

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.

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.
