Blog Tour Review & Excerpt: THE DIARY OF BRAD DE LUCA by Alessandra Torre


(Innocence #1.5)

by: Alessandra Torre



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 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 diving into unfamiliar waters. 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.

*This novella is a companion piece to Blindfolded Innocence, a #1 Erotica Bestseller.*


She would come to Vegas. Now that his brash mouth had issued the invitation, there was no alternative but to make sure that she came. Brad De Luca didn’t get rejected. Especially not by a twenty-something year old intern who had probably never been properly fucked in her life.

It was a horrible idea, flying an intern to Vegas. Kent Broward’s intern especially. If this came to light, when this came to light, there would be hell to pay. But that woman back there, that feisty attitude and tight body… she might be worth it. One night with her body could very well be worth the hell he’d have to pay. 


Star Rating: 4 stars

Heat Rating: Hot!

This was a great peek inside Brad's head during the first book Blindfolded Innocence!  Alessandra Torre set up this short novella so that the readers can get a glimpse into what was going through Brad's mind and get a handle on some of his intentions toward Julia.  The Diary of Brad De Luca also gives the reader a nice refresh of the story from Blindfolded Innocence as we get ready for the release of Masked Innocence in  February of 2014.

I love the writing of Alessandra Torre and really enjoyed this short, fast paced novella.  I read Blindfolded Innocence over a year ago so it was a great trip down memory lane while at the same time getting more insight to the yummy and mysterious Brad De Luca!  Brad is definitely a character I would love to get to know up close and personally.  You get just a taste of heat (not the usual Kindle melting heat) and a new craving for more of Brad and Julia!

I can't wait until Masked Innocence is released and I can dive back into this story and see what happens next!  Alessandra Torre is one of my "must read all her books" authors and this taste of Brad doesn't disappoint, it just pumps me up for more!  If you have read Blindfolded Innocence, then The Diary of Brad De Luca is a great fast read for you to whet your appetite while you wait for more! Definitely worth that 1-click!
