Book Blurb

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.




End of Innocence conclusion left me feeling sort of unsettled. On the one hand, I thoroughly enjoyed the book and as always I love Alessandra Torre’s writing style; but yet on the other hand, I felt like there needed to be vengeance in the end. I won’t give it away and spoil who exactly needs the vengeance, but I think its something that needs to happen in order for their journey to feel complete.

Brad De Luca was so perfect in this story. He was loving, sweet and had the perfect balance of being a supportive fiancé for Julia but he still held his own. I love his complete devotion to her. He has come such a long way from Book 1, that its so refreshing to see him come full circle.

Julia, I liked her a lot but I can’t help but think that sometimes she makes unwise choices, Especially towards the ending. She has a stubborn streak sometimes that can come back around and bite her in the butt if she’s not careful. One of her friends, Olivia, got on my last nerve. Jealous much?! lol Not sure if Olivia was just plain jealous or just never liked Brad but I got so sick of her snippy comments. I kind of longed for her attitude to eventually turn around for the better, but it never did, so it just felt like I was left hanging and unsatisfied.

The sex in End of Innocence was pretty good. Could’ve been hotter. I like my sex scenes in books to be explicit with no details left out. The sex scenes in this story felt like the details were skimmed over sometimes (except when it came to the menages) which I really enjoyed with the exception of the MFF. I could’ve done without that one.

I feel like I can’t rate this the full 5 stars because there needed to be vengeance. To me if someone does something wrong, they should pay the consequences for that one way or another. This book leaves you short on that.

Much love & Thanks to Alessandra Torre for this ARC.
