He thought I owned him. He thought he loved me, that I was enough. But this animal, this sex god who could drive me crazy and steal my heart in the same breath, he would never fully be mine. It was impossible. No one ever owned a God…
One year. I have one year to find out more about this man I am marrying. More about his family. More about our sex, and all of the dirty, delicious places it will take me.
I thought I’d spend this year making a decision. I never thought the decision would be taken from me, snatched right from my naive little hands.
Where to even begin – holy shit. This trilogy has been a roller coaster of emotions and sexual exploration. Julia has transformed from a college intern, recently breaking up with her fiance’ to a driven, strong and sexually awakened woman. Brad has brought all these things out in her by opening her eyes to the possibilities in front of her…. and in front of them.
All the while Julia is becoming the woman she is meant to be, she is unknowingly hooking Brad a little bit more and more until he’s so far gone in love with her he doesn’t know what to do with himself.
In the first book, Blindfolded Innocence you don’t know if you love Brad or hate him – and I couldn’t tell if Julia was cute and funny or just annoying – but as these two develop through out the trilogy the chemistry they have jumps off of the pages and illustrates some of the hot-as-fuck scenes I’ve ever read.
The End of the Innocence is an amazing finale to the trilogy – it was hot – drama filled and suspenseful … leaving me scanning every page as fast as I could to find out what was going to happen next. I had to set it down a few times, smoke a cigarette and hope for the best in more than a few parts – the suspense was killing me but I wanted to drag it out, making it last as long as possible knowing these stories would be the last I read of Brad and Julia (until I re-read the trilogy again 🙂
I loved it – pure and simple. Brad has grown into more than just a sex-on-a-stick of a man. He’s loyal to a fault, loving and incredibly sweet underneath everything and you see his true feelings for Julia develop and grow throughout all three books – but everything is so much more intense in this book.
The sex – the love – the passion – everything is amplified and amazing.
Do yourself a favor and check out this trilogy – you will NOT be disappointed.
Book 1: Blindfolded Innocence
“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.
Book 1.5: The Diary of Brad De Luca
I was happy with my life. And who wouldn’t be? Beautiful women, money, a job that I could sleep through and still make bank. But I was bored. And I never could walk away from a challenge.
This challenge turned out to be brunette. Feisty. Just the way I like them. But innocent. Too innocent for me. Too innocent to do anything other than sample and then toss back. Anything more would be too risky, too much work.
I was unprepared for Julia Campbell. I should have done my homework, should have looked before jumping off that cliff. Ditching her proved to be problematic, my sexual needs greater than my common sense.
She was different. She became more than a challenge.
She may just bring my world crashing down.
Book 2: Masked Innocence
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, conventional relationships when she let the elite divorce attorney seduce her into his world. Now that he’s determined to strip her naked of every inhibition, she’s in danger of falling too deep and too fast.
But their affair begins to feel even more dangerous when a murder leaves a trail of suspicion that points straight to the mob…and Brad. Trusting a man with a bad reputation and a past full of secrets seems like a mistake. But when she’s forced to make a choice, the consequences will take her further than she could ever have imagined.
