REVIEW: End of the Innocence by Alessandra Torre
One year. I have one year to find out more about this man I am marrying. More about his family. More about our sex, and all of the dirty, delicious places it will take me.
I thought I’d spend this year making a decision. I never thought the decision would be taken from me, snatched right from my naive little hands.

This is Book#3 in the Innocence Series by Alessandra Torre. Well, I could not resist devouring this book in basically 2 days while at work! And boy reading this at work got me in trouble in a good way! Yes it is that good! I did not want this series to end but let me tell you, Alessandra did it right! She knows how to write books!
If you haven't met Brad De Luca, what the hell are you waiting for! Go read BLINDFOLDED INNOCENCE & MASKED INNOCENCE before you read any further on this review.
***SPOILER IF YOU HAVE NOT READ BOOKS #1 & 2***
Okay, so let's get back to the review, I seriously fell in love with Brad De Luca even more! Seriously the man can't get any sexier & gosh I wish to find my own Brad one day. Julia is one lucky lady.
So we continue where we left where now Julia & Brad are engaged and planning their wedding. But of course it does not go as easy as they want it to be. Julia is threatened by people who do not approve of their marriage & Brad shows Julia just how far he will go to make sure its about them and no one else.
I loved how Alessandra shows us how Julia comes into her own more with a strong and sexy confidence in herself. Julia is wanting to explore even more than she did from the other 2 books. Julia sexual relationship with Brad gets even more hot & steamy.
There were times I was reading and had to drink down many iced cold drinks to keep me from overheating. This book I felt was the hottest in the whole series.
Now, for the twist: Yes I love books that totally hit you with a WTF??/ no way did that happen! Alessandra knows how to do that to her readers & it is what I like about reading her books. It is not predictable and keeps you entertained. There were times throughout the book I was wondering if things were going to change for the worse. You will have to read to find out!
One moment had me crying and broken hearted when Brad's true feelings poured out of him. Damn that scene just totally broke me but I felt it was exactly what us the reader needed in order to understand Brad even more. I literally just had to take a step back and absorb it all in.
I love books that hit you hard!
Having both Julia and Brad's Point of views with what they were feeling made it easier to understand them. Their trust for one another is shown throughout this book. They learn to be comfortable with one another as a couple, sexual and with others around them. It's not easy to do but they learn to do it. Alessandra kept the characters through out the whole series consistent. No changing them to boring or having them at a standstill of "what are they?".
Reading Alessandra's series, you get an rollercoaster of emotions that are both happy, frustrated, steamy.... just keeping you on your toes to finding out how will this end.
The ending to this book had me completely satisifed. I was happy to see how Brad & Julia's story would turn out. Alessandra did not dissapoint. The bonus content had me even more excited for what Brad & Julia future is like.
This is a definite must read! You will not be dissapointed!
Make sure to read this bonus material once you are done by Alessandra Torre! You don't want to miss it!
