Blog Tour - Twisted by Emma Chase


 
 Title: Twisted
Series:Tangled #2
Author: Emma Chase
Release Date: March 25, 2014
 

Falling in love is easy. Staying in love is hard. In this heart-pounding follow-up to Tangled by New York Times bestseller Emma Chase, Kate reveals that there is trouble in paradise, when unexpected circumstances force her and Drew to "renegotiate" their relationship.

There are two kinds of people in the world. The ones who look first, and the ones who leap. I’ve always been more of a looker. Cautious. A planner. That changed after I met Drew Evans. He was so persistent. So sure of himself—and of me.

But not all love stories end happily ever after. Did you think Drew and I were going to ride off into the sunset? Join the club. Now I have to make a choice; the most important of my life. Drew already made hisin fact, he tried to decide for the both of us. But you know that’s just not my style. So I came back to Greenville, Ohio, alone. Well, sort of alone...

What I've come to realize is that old habits die hard, and sometimes you have to go back to where you began before you can move ahead.

I freaking LOVED Tangled and Drew Evans. Hands down, there is only one Drew Evans.  Well this time around, Ms. Emma Chase did not disappoint her fans and readers finally gets to know Kate Brook’s POV in Twisted. Finally, we get to know the inside scoop from the only person who truly captured the heart of Drew Evans.  And I must say Kate matches her own when it comes to Drew.  I loved that Ms. Chase allowed readers to see the real Kate.  She’s is sassy, fun, lovable, feisty, and gives as good as she gets.

Two years into the relationship and this couple is still Hotter than ever. They live together, work together, play together, and are madly in love with each other. The sexual chemistry between Drew and Kate are sizzling. Their lives seem PERFECT!! Right?  Hot sex..check..great teamwork at work...check...communication skill…????  They say the key to a successful relationship is communication. Well leave it to Kate and Drew to turn give us a lesson on why these two needs to go back to school when it comes to communication. Without giving much away, Twisted can be described as MISCOMMUNICATION 101.
Be prepared for a rollercoaster of emotions of miscommunications and assumptions.  To quote Henry Winkler, “ Assumptions are the termites of relationships.” In this case, this was true for Kate and Drew.  Strap on to your seat and hold on tight as Drew and Kate takes readers on a bumpy emotional rollercoaster ride of He Said..She Said...He Did What..She Did What. Can these two hot headed and stubborn individuals learn to finally how to communicate?

As much as I love Drew Evans, Kate Brooks stole the show in TWISTED!!! I love her feisty, sassy, fun,  and independent spirit. You gotta love a woman who can match Drew’s personality. She gives as good as she gets.  There were times in the book, I wanted to knock some sense into Drew and scream at him WHY!!!!!!! But the way Kate handle the way Drew disrespected her, I probably would have handled the way she did.
Well as much as I love Drew and Kate, I freaking love the secondary characters from Delores, Mackenzie, Matthew, Stephen, Alexandra, and Billy.  Hands down, the females secondary characters are the best. The beloved Mackenzie was freaking adorable and too cute for words. And as for Dee-Dee and Alexandra, they do not disappoint. They are fiercely loyal and you don’t want to mess with them.
Twisted may not be over the top funny like Tangled but I think Ms. Chase did an excellent job in getting in Kate’s mind. I love that we can see how strong Kate’s friendship with DeeDee and Billy are. And of course, I love how we get to see Kate and Drew finally learning how to communicate and compromise. Thank you Ms. Emma Chase for bringing back Drew and Kate.  Lastly, I cannot wait for Tamed!!

Title: End of the Innocence
Series: Innocence #3
Author: Alessandra Torres
Release Date: March 23, 2014
 

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.


 
***** 5 Brad De Luca Stars *****

Ahhh...I’m sad that the Innocence series is coming to an end. Literally, I devoured and consumed all three books of the Innocence series plus the Diary of Brad De Luca in three days.  I was addicted to Brad De Luca and Julia. I never wanted their story to end and I wanted more.  Hands down Ms. Torre’s writing is captivating and spellbinding.  When I read the last page of the epilogue, it was bittersweet for me. I hate to say goodbye to Brad and Julia. These two are unlike any couple that I have read. Their relationship screams passionate, hot, sexy, understanding, love, and trust. Brad and Julia’s relationship is not your typical norm but they are still a committed couple even though they have a sexual preference of menage. What makes this couple stand out is that there is no jealousy...they are simply confident with their relationship. Their love is so strong that not even another person can come between them. They only have eyes for each other.

End of Innocence picks off where it last left off in Masked Innocence. Julia and Brad are back and PASSIONATE than ever!!!  Ms. Torre was able to incorporate sex, love, trust, and suspense all in End of Innocence.  Julia’s new found sexuality is embraced. Brad finally found the one woman who can satisfy and complete him. Together they are each other’s missing piece.  All loose ends from Masked Innocence were wrapped up in this final installment.  Ms. Torre did not just give us an ordinary predictable love story. She took us on one hell of a sexy rollercoaster ride that I didn’t want to get off. End of Innocence concluded in Brad De Luca fashion. Readers are left holding their breath if Brad and Julia can weather any storm that comes their way. Is this lifestyle Julia wants? How strong is their love? Will Julia and Brad get their HEA?  

EndofInnocence_3.jpg

I loved the transformation and growth of Julia’s character..the once naive heroine blossomed into a confident, independent woman who knows her sexuality. Julia is no longer blindfolded but has her eyes wide open. She knows what she loves and that is Brad. She accepts this newfound sexual exploration with open arms.  As for Brad, I absolutely love him.  He is sexy, confident, and the man knows what he wants. He only has eyes for Julia and she is the only one in his heart.  If there ever a couple who was confident in their love, it was Brad and Julia.

The Innocence series has made me a fan of Alessandra Torre.  Her writing is flawless, brilliant, and spellbinding. She has a way to hypnotize her readers with every word. I find myself losing track of time because I am devouring her books in one sitting. Her writing is original. Her characters are real. Emotions expressed are raw and heartfelt. Passion and intimacy was felt. Alessandra Torre did an amazing job in developing Brad and Julia’s relationship. It was fun, honest, sexy, passionate, fierce, and steaming hot. Brad is unlike any male hero...his presence in the book will make any readers sigh and swoon over him.  Ms. Torre will amaze and captivate you with the Innocence series.  She was able to conclude the story that left me smiling. So if you haven’t read the Innocence series, what are you waiting for? Go meet Brad De Luca..  Like an addict who needs their fix, the Innocence series was what I craved.

Review - Masked Innocence by Alessandra Torre

 
 
Title: Masked Innocence
Series: Innocence #2
Author: Alessandra Torres
Release Date: February 25, 2014
 

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 Masked Innocence Stars**

Masked Innocence is the sequel of Blindfolded Innocence and it picks off where it last left off. Brad De Luca and Julia Campbell are back and HOTTER than ever!! Ms. Torre took Masked Innocence to another level of sexy. Brad wants Julia. She wants Brad but she must be willing to let go of her inhibitions and embrace this new found sexuality Brad wants them as a couple to explore. Goodbye innocent Julia and say hello to the new Julia: confident, sexy, and open-minded.

Brad is willing to be in an exclusive relationship with Julia but there is one catch. He is willing to share Julia when it comes to menage play. They would try new things as couple. This whole new experiences is a new territory for Julia but she is willing to explore it for Brad. As Julia and Brad continue their courtship, she finds herself falling for Brad.

While Julia and Brad’s relationship had lots of steamy and hot moments, there was an added suspense to the storyline. For one, one of the partners at Brad’s law firm was murdered. Julia is distraught over the murder of her boss. She begins questioning and asking questions of possible suspects. Unfortunately, her life now hangs in the balance when word gets out that she needs to be removed permanently. Who is after Julia? How is Brad connected to the murder? What secrets will be unraveled?

Brad finds himself protecting Julia at all cost, even putting his life and career on the line. The development of Julia and Brad goes beyond hot sex and suddenly the two find themselves falling in LOVE!! For Brad, this is a new feeling for him causing him to see a future with Julia.

I really enjoyed reading Masked Innocence. It had elements of steam, intimacy, romance, and suspense. Ms. Torre’s writing is spellbinding and I found myself wanting more of Brad and Julia.  I love how readers are curiously awaiting what does the future hold in store for Brad and Julia. Although this book ends in a happily for now, I can’t wait to see what will become of this couple.  Is love enough?

Review - Blindfolded Innocence by Alessandre Torre

 
 
Title: Blindfolded Innocence
Series: Innocence #1
Author: Alessandra Torre
Release Date: July 19, 2012
 

Brad De Luca is incorrigible. The premier divorce attorney in town, he is a forty-year old walking hunk of sex, bedding half the town, including his own clients. Brad is used to getting whatever, and whomever, he wants, and when the newest intern arrives - Julia Campbell, a pre-law student fresh off a failed engagement - he embraces the challenge. Only, happy in her new independence, the last thing Julia wants, or needs, is an older man who could destroy her job prospects, and possibly her innocence.

Julia is confident in her sexuality, and her effect on men. But she is far out of her league. Before she knows it, Brad is stretching her boundaries and opening up a forbidden world of sensual and sexual exploration.

Warning: This book contains explicit sex scenes, including a MFM menage.

 

 
***4.5 Brad De Luca Stars**

Pardon my language but Holy Shit...Blindfolded Innocence is HOT!!!! This was my first book by Alessandra Torre and I absolutely LOVED it! I honestly didn’t know what to expect with Blindfolded Innocence but once I started reading I found myself devouring this book.

Twenty-One year old pre-law student Julia Campbell finds herself calling off her engagement and starting a law internship at the prestigious law firm, Clark, De Luca & Broward. Julia is assigned to Mr. Broward, who happens to be one the senior partners, who likes to work long hours. Mr. Broward immediately warns Julia to stay clear from Mr. Brad De Luca, another senior partner. Mr. De Luca has been infamously known to be a womanizer and one of the most successful divorce attorney.

After a failed marriage, Brad makes it known that he loves his single life and casual sex. He doesn’t do relationships. For him, its all about pleasure. When Brad meets Julia, there is instant attraction and connection. He knows Julia is innocent but he is drawn to her. As much as she tries to stay away from, he is like  a moth to a flame. When he invites her to spend the weekend in Las Vegas, a whole new side of sexuality is introduced to Julia.  The trip provides Julia to get a glimpse to a whole new side of Brad. What secrets will Julia unravel about Brad? Will Julia finally give into her desires?

BlindfoldedInnocence.jpg

Julia and Brad’s relationship is so addicting. It crosses the lines from forbidden boss/intern romance to exploring a new sexual kinkier side for Julia. Blindfolded Innocence was sexy and spellbinding and left me wanting more. I can’t wait to start Masked Innocence because Ms. Torre left me craving more of Brad and Julia after reading that last scene.  Let me just say, that last scene was wow…. **fans oneself**
