“I fell for the feisty, smart-ass Julia that calls me on my shit. But I’m owned by the vixen that you become behind closed doors.”
Yes Sir! I’m still riding the Alessandra Torre wave 🙂
Masked Innocence is the sequel to Blindfolded Innocence (which was my first 5 star read of the year!) and it starts right where the latter left off. Julia is finally letting go of her inhibitions… She wants Brad, and to have him, she has to be open to things she never contemplated before…
Their relationship is going well though she’s afraid she’s falling too fast too soon. However, she’s also never done anything like this before… about time she enjoyed herself. Unfortunately, there are many things set to rock their lives, at the forefront, a murder that leaves Brad as the suspect…
This one was different from Blindfolded Innocence. The steam and the banter is there but what’s new is the suspense. At first I was unsure how I felt about the latest addition. On the one hand, I love suspense and it was done well… on the other hand, I feel as though it kind of took away from the amazing dialogue these two characters had in book #1.
That being said, I understand the need to diversify and strengthen a plot. The suspense took their story to a completely different direction. We finally get to know Brad’s background, and it will surprise you. While Blindfolded Innocence was Erotic Romance, this one becomes Romantic Suspense. But don’t worry, to Blindfolded Innocence‘s sexual tension, we get Masked Innocence‘s steam… lot’s of it 😉
That, combined with one of my favorite heroines;
“Why are you so certain I will fall in love with you?” His voice was low, irritated.
I smiled patiently at him. “You just met me. I’ve had over twenty years to get to know me. Trust me, you will. You’re too smart not to.”
Yup, love her 🙂
In conclusion, I love Torre’s writing. I love her strong heroes and even stronger heroines. Looking forward to the conclusion of this story.
