"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.

Alessandra Torre knows how to write erotica. I have read many other books of hers and I have loved all of them so far. They have such a great combination of intrigue, edginess, drama, sexual tension, chemistry, lust, want, need and love.
Julia Campbell is a tease.
But a tease who knows what she wants. Which is find love with 'the one' and be a successful lawyer. To achieve these things she starts with interning at a premier law firm where she is quickly told to stay away from divorce lawyer Brad De Luca.
Brad De Luca is a wee bit of a man whore but leaves no illusions of anything but sex and having a good time. He doesn't want a commitment because he doesn't feel there is anyone who could match him sexually and be the perfect trophy wife as well.
Julia believes sex comes with love until she meets Brad who teaches her that you can just have sex with no connection but changes his tune when he finally gets Julia.
Julia and Brad have fantastic chemistry and once Brad lets Julia in on his sexual history he opens up her world to all kinds of possibilities.
Can Julia accept Brad's sexual world? Can her future still work when people find out about her and Brad? Can Brad commit? So many questions that hopefully be answered in the next two books.
4 Not So Innocent Thumbs up!
by Alessandra Torre (Goodreads Author)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.

My Mini Review...
In this novella we get to see what happens in Blindfolded Innocence from Brad's POV
We get to see how he thinks and all his naughty ways.
Brad's POV is so different from Julia's and at times you want not to like him with some of his choices but this POV also opens you up to seeing what is behind the man and you start routing for him all at the same time.
Brad loves sex and fun but he is also wants more. Once meeting Julia she changes everything.
4 Brad is very naughty Thumbs up!
