Masked Innocence by Alessandra Torre

The man was sinful. It wasn't just the looks that made him dangerous, it was the cocky confidence that dominated every move, every touch. And the frustrating yet ecstatic fact about the whole package was that he could back it all up… 

Julia Campbell never knows what to expect with win-at-all-costs Brad De Luca. And she's starting to like it that way. She gave up safe, conventional relationships when she let the elite divorce attorney seduce her into his world. Now that he's determined to strip her naked of every inhibition, she's in danger of falling too deep and too fast. 

But their affair begins to feel even more dangerous when a murder leaves a trail of suspicion that points straight to the mob…and Brad. Trusting a man with a bad reputation and a past full of secrets seems like a mistake. But when she's forced to make a choice, the consequences will take her further than she could ever have imagined.

This book picked up right we left off in the first book. I am still impressed by how AT really got me with her writing style. I didn't even notice that this book was more than 200 pages long becase it was that easy to read.

I am not a fan of Brad and Julia's type of kink but once again, it was downplayed enough in the book that I didn't have to read about it most of the time. That meant that there was more space to read about the rest of their story and the complexities it brought with it. That one surprise twist about Brad I did not see coming because I had it all pegged for another thing. AT got me there, too.

But my most favorite part of the book was ***SPOILER*** was the proposal. I mean who would have thought that the kind of asshole-y and douchy Brad I first started reading about would have such a romantic streak in him? Involving Julia's best friends in the event totally scored him major points in my book. Just sayin'.

Final verdict: 8/10. Great read.
