Release Blitz with Review: Corrupting the Innocent by P. Rayne

June 8, 2023


Corrupting the Innocent by P. Rayne is now live!

Sofia Moretti

For years, I’ve harbored a secret love for my best friend’s older brother. Yet, he’s never shown any sign of sharing my feelings.

My fantasies will remain just that though—fantasies. For two reasons. The first being he’s arranged to marry the cunning and cold-hearted, Aurora Salucci. The second being that Antonio always does what his duty demands, and if his father wants him married to Aurora, he’ll marry her.

Now, I’m forced to watch her parade him all over the Sicuro Academy, our private college for mafia children, as my feelings of loneliness grow.

I do my best to push Antonio from my mind and when another man shows me interest, I hope he’ll help me move on from the man that will never be mine.

Turns out it doesn’t quite work that way though.

Antonio La Rosa

My life has been a series of duties—to the mafia, to my father, but never to myself.

That’s why my father arranged my engagement to Aurora Salucci. We’re a good match as far as mafia politics go but it leaves a lot to be desired for me. She’s nothing I’ve ever wanted in a wife with her hard edges and being about as malleable as granite.

Then there’s Sofia Moretti, my little sister’s best friend. I never looked at her with anything other than sisterly affection, until recently.

Now, she consumes my every thought. My every desire.

Her innocence beckons me, and I yearn to be the one who taints it.

But I have a duty. And that duty means prioritizing my family’s needs above my own.

And right now, the family needs me to uncover the traitor plotting against us. Little do I know, the enemy is closer than I ever imagined.

Corrupting the Innocent is the first book I've been able to read since I've been in this godforsaken book slump I'm in, and for that alone, it deserves a gold medal! P. Rayne has an amazing writing style that pulls you in from the first page and holds your attention until the last. Just like with the first book in this series, I tore through the current installment in one sitting, and I had a great time doing it!

Sofia has been pining away after her best friend's brother for years without anyone's knowledge, so when said brother is promised to marry another, she's devastated and doomed to suffer her heartbreak in silence. Antonio has never thought of Sofia as anything other than his little sister's friend until the day she opens her dorm room door in a sexy pajama set that gains his full attention for the first time. 

Regardless of whatever feelings begin stirring in his heart or his pants, Sofia is off limits to him. Not only is Antonio engaged to be married, but if Sofia is caught with him, she'll be ruined. He won't risk destroying her in that way, and she refuses to be anyone's mistress. 

Corrupting the Innocent is exactly what I needed to jump start my reading life! Sofia and Antonio's romance is forbidden, complicated, angsty, and delicious. Just the way I like it! This story gave me everything I needed when I needed it most, so thank you, P. Rayne. I owe you one! 

If you enjoyed Vow of Revenge, don't hesitate to pick up this book. It's a great follow up to it's predecessor involving characters that probably peaked your interest the first time around. Sofia and Antonio's story is a fast paced read with spice, mystery, murder, and suspense, all things guaranteed to make your little mafia romance loving heart happy!

New adult and mafia romance fans, this one's for you!
