Brad De Luca is used to getting whatever, and whomever, he wants. The premier divorce attorney in town, he is a forty-year-old playboy who's bedded half the city—including his own clients. And when the newest intern at his firm poses a challenge, his seductive prowess goes into overdrive.Warning: This title is intended for readers over the age of 18 as it contains explicit sex scenes and/or situations (including m/f/m menage) and adult language, and may be considered offensive to some readers.
Pre-law student Julia Campbell is fresh off a failed engagement and happy with her new independence. Even if she weren't warned away from Brad at every turn, she'd know he was bad news. The last thing she needs is an older man who could destroy her job prospects, not to mention her innocence. But before she knows it, the incorrigible charmer has her under his spell. His deviant tastes plunge her deep into a forbidden world of sexual exploration…but her heart may not survive the fall.
Blindfolded Innocence is a well written, detail rich, erotic romance that follows the journey of Julia a "good girl" into a far more "bad girl" life. Ms. Torre gives us great background, engaging dialog and enough steamy sex scenes to melt your panties.
As a reviewer of erotic romance I read about many different lifestyle choices and relationships, I had a hard time with the way this one was presented. First Brad is really hard to like at all he really is kind of a jerk, second Julia is a tease and a brat and isn't much more likable herself. Finally the thing I had the hardest time with was that Brad is portrayed to have some bizarre sexual kink that is so deviant that he just can't share it with an innocent like Julia, Like it is something bad and wrong. I felt like that it painted people living an alternative lifestyle or having different sexual kinks as "bad". Maybe this was not the authors intent but this is just the way it came across to me.
So from a pure was this a good book based the technical things I look at heck yeah, was it worth a read yeah, I had my own issue with what I felt was the take on the lifestyle portrayal.

Brad walked alone through the club. Dancers nodded and squeezed his arm as he passed, but he didn’t stop, his eyes scanning the crowd for Montana and Julia. He had taken longer with Alexis then he had intended, and didn’t want Julia alone and pissed at the table. His eyes searched the crowd and finally stopped on the table where they had originally sat. His lips set, he strode forward.
He had to push himself through the crowd that had gathered, a mixture of drunk executives and Abercrombie-attired college boys. Julia was kneeling on the round table that had previously held their champagne flutes and ice bucket. Her strapless dress had been pulled down; her breasts were exposed and alert. Montana had an ice cube in her mouth and was running her mouth over Julia’s breasts, making her nipples stiff and pink. As he watched, Julia leaned forward and placed her hands on Montana’s breasts, pushing them together and kissing her deeply. Jesus Christ.
The girls separated. Montana sprinkled Julia’s nipples with the salt and then licked and sucked one of them, kissing Julia long and hard, both their hands roaming. Julia and Montana then grabbed shots of tequila and downed them, holding up the glasses in celebration.
The crowd cheered and started chanting. “Another! Another!” Their energy swelled, and Brad was jostled by a push of bodies behind him.
Where the fuck is Janine? He looked around but didn’t see her. Montana shouldn’t be drinking, though he could probably see how this had happened, and cursed himself for taking too long with Alexis. Finding a black-shirted security guard, he yelled into his ear, trying to make himself heard over the crowd. “Did Montana get approval to drink?”
“Yeah. Janine gave her an hour of drinking, then said she’d need to go home—no working afterward.”
“All right. Make sure the crowd stays under control and doesn’t mess with the girls.”
“You got it, boss. Ricky’s keeping an eye from the other side. Right now everyone’s behaving.”
Brad looked back to the two girls. Montana was pulling Julia’s dress over her head, exposing her tanned, toned stomach and a lace thong that left nothing to the imagination. He groaned, the image pulling at his recently restored composure.
