The Diary of Brad De Luca. Blindfolded Innocence series 1.5 Alessandra Torre

The Diary of Brad De Luca. Blindfolded Innocence series 1.5 Alessandra Torre

ARC supplied via Netgalley.
I liked the synopsis for this, but couldn’t find any info anywhere so decided I’d go for it anyway. I made a mistake though…its one of the sort of books I don’t like. Love the subject. Love Alessandra’s writing style but…this wasn’t a book. It’s a short. A novella. It’s a companion piece to Blindfolded innocence, and its Brad’s thoughts on the start of his affair with intern Julia.
The attraction between them is instant, she knows what he’s like, his reputation for using women precedes him, he’s been warned by the other partners to keep away from the interns, but the two of them have a simmering, sensual attraction that they can’t seem to deny. Its a backwards and forwards motion, with them going to Vegas, but Brad backs off, then when they’re back he’s warning off potential boyfriends. To be honest I found the whole thing very confusing, and I guess if I’d read Blindfolded Innocence maybe Iā€™d have understood more. As it was I felt Iā€™d had my appetite whetted then nothing much was delivered šŸ˜¦
I’m not a fan of novellas or books delivered via short instalments, and Iā€™m not really sure of the purpose of this book. I don’t have length or pricing information so I can’t comment on that, except to say this was a very short read, around twenty minutes. Tp me it seemed to be to be purposeless and direction-less, I was just really confused, though I liked the premise, and would love to read the other book Blindfolded Innocence. Overall I’d say I didn’t like the length or the way its just a sort of motiveless snippet, but I did love the idea/plot of the book, and enjoyed the writing style. My stars therefore are on this book only, not the quality of the writing or the subject ā€“ simply the way its delivered.
Stars: two.

Edit: I’ve since read parts one and two of this series and it makes so much more sense now. When I requested this as an ARC there wasn’t much info, and now I see the description includes recomendation to read part one first. Thats good, as then its a so much better read. I’ve now re read it and would rate it four stars. Love part one too, and am currently reviewing masked innocnce, part two in the sereis with part three due soon I hope šŸ™‚

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
