My Rating: 3.5-4 stars out of 5
Read this for Alessandra Torre week on the goodreads Shhhh… group!
If you didn’t already know, I am a big Alessandra Torre fan, I mean the woman has written some of my favourite books. There are a couple of her books I have yet to catch up on (some of the older ones) and it just felt like the right time to start this. I kept being told I needed to meet Brad De Luca and well clearly I am pretty happy to have met him now. That man is a true enigma.
Any who, I think this book brings a new aspect to the whole erotica genre. The theme is different to what I have read from before, it is about swingers yes, but it is introduced near the end of the book.For me this was about our main character; Julia, discovering herself and her attraction to this man who is so complex and different to what she’s usually used to in a man. It was quite interesting to see her experience this whole different world which is sure to rock her off her feet. I mean how would it be possible for her to return to her normal life after fucking Brad De Luca?
This book was very entertaining for me. I highly enjoy Alessandra’s writing. I don’t know, there’s always something about it that grips me and intrigues. It’s definitely a page turner. I cannot lie that even though some concepts in this book I had to disagree with, I still managed to enjoy and in fact I found it quite difficult to put it down. I think the credit definitely goes to good, balanced writing and also I was just really interested in how the story would turn out. It’s theme is quite different so I never really knew what to expect. I kept expecting different things to happen, but it turned out as a good surprise in the end. I thought it would be similar to other office intern romances but I was frankly quite wrong. It was very different. But in a good way of course.
I had a few issues with Julia. She got on my nerves sometimes and I was like, Brad babe what are you doing chasing her? She also seemed like a bit of a pushover in the sense that she became a little stupid and agreed to easily after being asked just once by Brad. A little too naive I think.
If you’re a fan of the genre and want to read something a little unique then go ahead! With that note I shall end this review.
