Masked Innocence (Innocence #2) by Alessandra Torre

The man was sinful. It wasn't just the looks that made him dangerous, it was the cocky confidence that dominated every move, every touch. And the frustrating yet ecstatic fact about the whole package was that he could back it all up…

Julia Campbell never knows what to expect with win-at-all-costs Brad De Luca. And she's starting to like it that way. She gave up safe, conventional relationships when she let the elite divorce attorney seduce her into his world. Now that he's determined to strip her naked of every inhibition, she's in danger of falling too deep and too fast.

But their affair begins to feel even more dangerous when a murder leaves a trail of suspicion that points straight to the mob…and Brad. Trusting a man with a bad reputation and a past full of secrets seems like a mistake. But when she's forced to make a choice, the consequences will take her further than she could ever have imagined.

4/5 Fangs

I have to be honest, the first book in this series wasn't my favorite. It was simply a story of lust, there was no love and it left me a little disappointed. So going into this, my expectations weren't very high. But, I was pleasantly surprised because I ended up really liking this book.

Brad and Julia decide to commit to one another, with the agreement that they will occasionally bring another person into their bed. Threesomes might not be my thing, but it works for Julia and Brad. He's older and more experienced and really pushes her to open up sexually. At times it surprises her how much she enjoys it.
"It was like watching a disaster, and not being able to turn away. You know you shouldn't look, but you ache for it so badly."
Julia's internship at the law firm is coming to an end and she is pleasantly surprised when her boss offers her a part-time paid position while she finishes school. He hates Brad, so she has no choice but to keep their relationship a secret. When her boss is murdered, she remembers a conversation she overheard that involved a prominent mob family. She tries to tell the police, but apparently the cops are corrupt because it's not long before a hit is put out on her. Brad's true identity is revealed when he tries to keep her safe and Julia ends up questioning their whole relationship.

I really grew to like Brad more in this book and look forward to seeing what happens when Julia becomes his wife.
