Overview

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 fully be mine. It was impossible. No one ever owned a God...

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.

The final book in the Innocence Trilogy.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Torre's erotic sequel to the indie digital hit Blindfolded Innocence returns to the dangerous, decadent world of divorce lawyer Brad De Luca and law student Julia Campbell. In the bedroom, Brad is slowly pushing Julia to the very edges of her sexual limits, including threesomes and sex parties...Torre keeps readers engaged with this fast-moving tale of deceit, treachery, and love. (Jan 2014)" ~Praise for MASKED INNOCENCE (Book 2 in The Innocence Series)
Booklist - Mary Chelton
"Torre gives readers erotica with a plot, despite the bromide of the alpha male introducing the naïve young woman to sex and a variant of the marriage of convenience. Julia is a classic "spunky Suzy," and unlike Fifty Shades of Grey, the story is plausible." ~Praise for MASKED INNOCENCE (Book 2 in The Innocence Series)

A bit choppier than the first two as it covered a greater span of time...that aside very good read.

The End of Innocence brings a happy end to the Innocence series. Their engagement is met with disbelief and plotting by third parties from the outset. It proves blood isn’t always thicker than water. I think this is my favourite book covering Brad and Julia’s story. The sex is hot and steamy as always. The character development spot on and writing fluid throughout. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Stayed up until 3 am reading this book on a workday, but it was worthy. I just could not put it down, that's how good it is. The threat to Julia's life takes an unprecedented turn here, her relationship with Brad solidifies, and all happens across a beautifully written, solidly crafted storyline. On one side, I am delighted to end the trilogy. On the other hand, I am just sad it is over. I may read them all again. Highly recommended.

I had the wonderful pleasure to read this book. I loved this book so much Brad is wonderful to Julia and it shows in how Alessandra brings life to the story. she has this way that draws you in to were your part of the story. And oh man the steamy parts fogged up my glasses. I have to say thank god Brad had Julia take self defense classes or there would not be a happy ending I hope Alessandra will rethink this and much without spoilers but make sure to look in the back of book when finished for the link to a website with bonus content you will hate yourself if you miss that tidbit.turns this into another book I'd like to know if Brad ever finds out for sure what his dad was up to and how they end up dealing with la familia I can't say to much or id spoil it but make sure to look in back of book for a website with a great little tidbit you'll hate it if you miss it

End of Innocence is the final installment in the Innocence Trilogy. It was a beautiful ending to what has been a captivating story. Alessandra Torre did an amazing job of bringing the story to an end and providing a sense of closure that would make the reader happy. I am so sad to see Brad and Julia’s journey come to an end, they are two very addicting and enjoyable characters and I could never get enough of either. From Blindfolded Innocence to Masked Innocence to End of Innocence there is this amazing story, there is this beautiful transition between Brad and Julia and the story flows perfectly, beginning, middle and end, between all of the books. We meet Brad in the beginning as this dark, mysterious man who feels incapable of love. As the story progresses through the second book and finally onto End of Innocence we find Brad becoming softer, Julia is his match, she is enough. The growth in Brad’s character is done beautifully. Alessandra Torre remained consistent through all of the books with both characters, but she was able to make these minor transformations to each character that were minimal, but noticeable, yet also kept the story consistent, thorough and detailed. We also find Julia in End of Innocence, more inclined to experiment in Brad’s world without him having to convince her of anything. She is curious and we see her own development in her sexuality and in her desire and love for Brad. Julia also remains witty and her internal dialogue and banter between her and Brad is always enjoyable and funny. I loved End of Innocence and while I want more Brad DeLuca and Julia Campbell, it could not have been written or ended any better. Alessandra Torre did a phenomenal job of remaining true to her characters and the storyline between all three books. Her writing is incredible and detailed. I look forward to so much more from this author! *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*

This book was Amazing!!! My heart was literally pounding during the intense scene towards the end. The writing is so good and descriptive. I can vividly imagine everything! I wish they would have had kids in the extended ending though ¿ but, other than that. Amazing. Definitely recommend.

Overall, I enjoyed reading the series but I was disappointed with the ending. Left too many unanswered questions for me. I even read the extended ending of four years later and it still didn't satisfy. I did like how the series had Brad's pov throughout the book but I wished there had been more from him. I liked how Brad "passed" his test with Alexis and I loved how for his birthday he realized he did not need another woman to have sex with, he only needed Julia. However, it seems that Julia likes the new lifestyle more than what Brad does. It's sweet that Brad realized how much Julia truly means to him and that he is truly in love with her for life. I'm not surprised about what his dad did, even though I was trying to guess who was after her for awhile. Again, I liked the series, but just disappointed in the ending.

So sad to see Brad and Julia come to an end. Really wished I had a glimpse of what happened after after with Dom Magiano.. You left me hanging and wondering. I've also read the bonus feature and 4 years later no kids??? No mention of Brad's family, her BFF's... All these different scenarios.. Loved your books, it was so so exciting, really wished there were more pages for me to turn! Will read more from AT. LOVETOREAD

OMG! They are engaged to be married.  Brad's family has agreed to leave her alone.  But one night on Thanksgiving, after a meeting with the family, things shift and Julia's life is in danger all over again. Another amazingly written book by Alessandra.  Follow Julia and Brad as they continue to grow their relationship and plan for a wedding that will never be. This book is filled with love, laughter and THE most amazing supporting cast.  Oh and suspense. Did I mention that? I found myself feeling every emotion coming from the page, as though I were in the book myself. This book is the final book in the trilogy and Alessandra delivers a strong ending to an amazing series. Get it, read it and be ready to be wowed.

This well written novel captured my imagination.  Torre’s voice meshes perfectly with the storyline, keeping you focused on what’s happening and trying to guess what will happen next.  Heat and suspense combine to create a uniquely racy read that I definitely enjoyed.  The ending of this novel was definitely shocking.  Torre writes a HEA that is far from typical.  It is without a doubt a HEA, but it lacks the sense of ‘perfect’ that you find in so many romance novels.  It is much more realistic.  Also, the fact that the novel isn’t over in the blink of an eye add to this realism.  It was definitely a quick, racy read but it also took place over the span of a year.  The fact that the characters took their time in their relationship really brings it all home.   The flashbacks to previous encounters really draw you in and heighten the excitement of the story.  They also give you a deeper insight into the main characters themselves.  You really get to see and understand how they’re feeling and what they’re thinking in certain situations.  But Torre’s character development doesn’t end there.  She takes the characters we’ve come to know and love (or hate) in the first two novels of the series and continues to make them grow.  Some characters change based on their experiences, others we just get to know in a much more rounded way.   This widely varied cast combines to create an unforgettable extended family.   Overall this was a great ending to the series.  It was bittersweet at times,  suspenseful at others, and hot throughout.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
