Book Review: Blindfolded Innocence




Blindfolded Innocence (Innocence #1) by Alessandra Torre: 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.

TeriLyn's thoughts: **ARC provided by publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review**

I'm torn. There is a lot I really like. Then there's Julia who I didn't particularly like for the first half of the book. Blindfolded Innocence was good; strong plot, feisty dialogue, steady flow, passionate. Overall, I liked Brad and Julia's story. The trip to Vegas is awesome and them in Vegas, together, is explosive. The second night in Vegas I really warmed up to Julia, when she lets go of her inhibitions she's great. But in the first half I couldn't figure out what Brad saw. It's one thing to be innocent but she is whiny, uptight, and a total game player. I did not find her appealing at all. Her character could have been so much better if she was more confident and open. She redeems herself when she lets her guards down and gets out of her own head. I liked her the second half of the book. I frankly do not know how she resisted Brad DeLuca through even the first meal. He's dangerously magnetic. Brad has this mysteriously dangerous edge about him, pure animal. When it comes to Brad, thanks to Ms. Torres' brilliant execution of him, you just can't tear your eyes from the page. Hard to comprehend how Julia resisted his innately dominant pull. This is a testament to the brilliantly engaging writing. It's just Julia's character I had issues with. I have really high hopes for the second installment. I'm hoping the author turns me into a Julia believer, especially since I totally believe in Brad.
