Publisher's Summary

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.

Disappointing end to a great series

The narrator changed for the last book in the series and it was NOT a positive change! She lacked the energy and storytelling of the other narrator so the story dragged and never seemed to get the same momentum as the other books.

The end was lacking energy and better closure. Seemed an abrupt ending without the nice bow on the end I expected.

Not as Good as the First

Any additional comments?

this one wasn't bad, just not as good as the first book. Ms. Torre tried to give more with the plot, but she could have stuck with the great scenes. i know the normal progression of a relationship, but there's was too quick for this couple. especially for Brad. he should have needed more time,but he was gung-ho for it all.

not the ending I was looking for

not sure who decided to change narrators. poor choice. she sounded completely disinterested on the story and annoyed. I'm sure that played into my lack of interest in the story. book 1 and two worth the listen, three not so much

An amazing trilogy

I loved this story and can't believe it is over. Just wow. Drama, Sex, Hot Sex, Love, Action and even some humor all smashed into one heart felt story. This book was amazing.

Skipped to the 3rd

I didn’t read book one and two. So imagine my surprise upon the love scenes! If your not into ménage then pass on this hot number. None of my friends have craved that much sex so many times seeming hours apart. How does she get anything done? If the F word wasn’t thrown around so much you would notice that the authors vocabulary is expansive and thoughtful. Although I don’t want to hear “Game Face” ever again. I assume the author comes from wealth as it seems to bring happiness in 2/2 of her novels I’ve read. Spoiler. But it still seems inconceivable that law enforcement and doctors make house calls even if you are wealthy.

A must read!!

3rd book in the series didn't disappoint. This was another great book by Alessandra Torre. It had everything you expect in a Erotic romance.

Narrator change for the final book was unexpected causing loss of tie to first two books.

The first book in the trilogy took me a while to gain my interest but by the end of book one I was ensnared in the story. Torres did a good job finishing the story with End of Innonce. It was plausible but seemed to leave a few loose ends. Maybe the Diary will fill in some more. I will definitely read another of her books.

As to the audible version, I couldn't get over the switch in narrators. Ms Woodward voice was whining in nature, discordant compared to the narrator of the first two books. I believed this took away from the enjoyment of the third book at times

I absolutely love this series!

What made the experience of listening to The End of the Innocence (Volume 3) the most enjoyable?

End of the Innocence is the third and final installment in Alessandra Torre's erotic/romance trilogy titled Innocence. I thought the addition of thriller/mystery elements was a surprise in the second book, but I obviously had know idea what Ms. Torre had up her sleeve! Ms. Torre had me glued to every page of this book and I loved it! This has been a great trilogy that I started out loving but honestly didn't have high hopes for the long run. I was wrong. I don't re-read many books, much less entire trilogies/series but all of these books were put right back on my list for a re-read. Alessandra Torre is a goddess. Have I said that yet? Check her out!!

What other book might you compare The End of the Innocence (Volume 3) to and why?

Alessandra Torre's Innocence trilogy includes the following installments as of December 2016:
#1-Blindfolded Innocence
#1.5-The Diary of Brad De Luca
#2-Masked Innocence
#3-End of the Innocence

What about Devra Woodward’s performance did you like?

I loved the narration in this series!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My favorite quote:
"The horrific thing about having everything you wanted is the constant fear that it would all disappear."

Narrator is not as high energy as volume 1 and 2

Would you be willing to try another one of Devra Woodward’s performances?

May be.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

no

Any additional comments?

Devra Woodward's pace is too slow in comparison with narrator on volume 1 and 2 .
