He thought I owned him. He thought he loved me, that I was enough. But this animal, this sex god who could drive me crazy and steal my heart in the same breath, he would never be fully mine. It was impossible. No one ever owns a God.
Bella's Review4 Stars.
I have been dying for this book since finishing Masked Innocence. I needed to see Brad and Julia have a HEA. Alessandra Torre's writing style has become one of my favorites. I have come to expect super sexiness with substantial plot and unpredictable twists. There are so many loose ends that needed to be dealt with and I couldn't wait to see how Torre would do it. Work, Brad's family, Alexis, marriage, etc.
Brad is still sex on a stick. He's confident, arrogant and vulnerable in this book. I LOVE how connected he is to Julia. He's devoted to her. And I love how he doesn't beat around the bush.
“But know that I find it despicable that, of all of your sons, I would be the one that you find shameful. Thank you for reminding me of why I cut off contact with you.” Bam. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, daddyo.
Julia is embracing her relationship with Brad. She still struggles to keep her independence and not get completely steamrolled by Brad's dominance. But she is enjoying their...ahem...sexual endeavors.
“This is the animal Brad, my favorite side of him, a side I only see in these moments, when he is watching me with another, and every alpha male instinct is on high alert.”
Not only is she enjoying it but she has graduated to the next level. “The blindfold. I didn't need it.”
“No, no one ever owned a god. But I was working on taming, fooling him into submission.”
We get plenty of sex so be warned – do not read in public! The birthday scene is my favorite. YUM.
From the beginning of the book, there is this forewarning that something bad is going to happen. This kind of took away the element of surprise for me and made the book slightly more predictable than I would have liked. None the less, I was sucked in from the beginning and could not focus on anything other than turning the pages!
It's difficult to say good bye to these characters. I still want more Brad and Julia. The end left me feeling a bit...bereft. It's over?? I mean, I knew the book had to end sometime, but it still crept up on me and left me wanting more.
If you haven't read Blindfolded Innocence and Masked Innocence you have to start with them.
I'm excited to see what Alessandra Torre comes up with next!!
