The Diary of Brad DeLuca | Review

4 Stars
Book: Diary of Brad De Luca
Author: Alessandra Torre
Genre: Erotic Romance

Book Blurb:
I was happy with my life. And who wouldn’t be? Beautiful women, money, a job that I could sleep through and still make bank. But I was bored. And I never could walk away from a challenge.

This challenge turned out to be brunette. Feisty. Just the way I like them. But innocent. Too innocent for me. Too innocent to do anything other than sample and toss back.  Anything more would be too risky, too much work.

I was unprepared for Julia Campbell. I should have done my homework, should have looked before diving into unfamiliar waters. Ditching her proved to be problematic, my sexual needs greater than my common sense.

She was different. She became more than a challenge.

She may just bring my world crashing down.

*This novella is a companion piece to Blindfolded Innocence, a #1 Erotica Bestseller.*

Book Review:
I will start with I haven't read Blindfolded Innocence, the first book in the series... can I say that since this is technically a novella? Anyways, The Diary of Brad DeLuca doesn't read like a typical book. It was choppy and was meant to give the reader insight to what Brad was feeling/thinking during Blindfolded Innocence. Had I realized that, I would have read BI first, and it would have made a ton more sense! So, definitely read it first. Just from reading this novella, it seems like BI would be a great book, but reading the novella spoils BI. I know what happens and now I feel a bit jaded.  
So, overall, read Blindfolded Innocence first because I really think I would like it, this read the novella. I'm going to save the novella is 4 stars just by itself. I like the originality of the style of writing. One thing that I dislike about a lot of other novellas is they seem more of a retelling, while doing it in the style of a diary hits on the high points where it really matters and leaves the "lower" (cringe lack-of-a-better-word) points out. Don't expect it to read like a short story because it doesn't. It is a diary.
