by Alessandra Torre (Goodreads Author)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.

Finally the conclusion to Brad and Julia. If you have not read the first two please be cautious of this review as their will be spoilers for the first two books.
Brad's fail safe solution of protecting Julia is with an engagement. At the end of book 2, I was thinking this engagement was out of love but I had a nagging feeling that it was only for her safety and I was concerned that Brad was going to go back to his man whore ways but Brad surprised me in this book.
Right from the beginning we get to realize that Brad is really all in with this relationship. He truly loves Julia. Throughout this book we get to feel and experience the depth of Brad's emotions and love towards Julia.
Julia loves Brad but she also wants some independence so she conforms to some notions but puts her foot down in others. She is fierce when it comes to Brad even when it comes to his family, her family, or her friends.
As the wedding gets closer temptations and pasts rear their ugly head. Julia's ex-fiance tries to make a dent into her plans but with his appearance it only solidifies her feelings for Brad. As Brad is trying to turn a new leaf he gifts Julia the strip club causing them to crash head on to Brad's past and potential weakness.
As my heart started to get palpitations wondering what Brad was going to do with temptation and I wanted to bitch slap Alexis with her antics causing me so much grief then Brad surprises Alexis and me.
Things are going as smooth as can be then be in the world of Brad and Julia they still find time to explore sexually, while they prepare for their wedding, evade bitchy friends and trying families.
Just when we think we are going to get our HEA the rug gets pulled under our feet. As Brad's world falls apart Julia fighting spirit comes to the forefront. However, not to spoil to much but we do get our HEA in the end.
I really did enjoy this series. It had so many different facets going on while a beautiful love story was blossoming. I loved the growth and depth of Brad. One of my weaknesses are man whores who succumb to love. It may not be the norm relationship, but it works for Brad and Julia and in the end that is all that matters. When the pivotal angst was happening in the book I did find that part a bit rushed which caused me to lose a bit of the dimension in that storyline but it didn't effect the whole series experience.
I am a big fan of Alessandra Torre and if you like Erotica with an edge and a little kink and drama then this is series worth the read.
4 Brad loving Thumbs up!
