Lexi Gifford is the editor-in-chief of a popular women’s magazine named Innocent. Lexi needs a new assistant and a new lover, and she finds both in Theodore Logan—a rather naïve and virginal farm boy from Iowa.
At first, Lexi is hesitant about getting involved with Theodore—who goes by Theo—because of a bad previous relationship. There’s also the age difference, because Lexi is thirty-two and Theo is eighteen.
However, any hesitation on her part flies out the window when he winds up modeling for an upcoming issue of Innocent, when a model doesn’t show for the shoot. Unable to resist seeing his hunky farm boy frame clad only in a pair of form-fitting bikini bottoms, she ravishes Theo.
Their relationship blossoms both in and out of the bedroom, and eventually Lexi realizes that her passion for Theo goes beyond the merely sexual and that she has genuine feelings for him.
4 STARS – Emma’s Book Reviews
Thank you to the author for sending me a copy of this book for review. I read this book in less than an hour as it is only 37 pages long and it is definitely worth a read.
I didn’t read the blurb before I started reading this book, I went into it blind and I’m glad I did as I wasn’t sure what to expect, which was much more exciting.
I did enjoy this book, however I would of liked it to give us more of a background on Lexi and Theo as it just jumped straight into their relationship. I would of like to see them working together first and developing a friendship and working relationship. Having said that though this book isn’t one where the characters relationship develops, it just happens so fast. So the author has purposely jumped straight in with them. Looking at it from this point of view it is a brilliantly written and thought out book.
I didn’t particularly like Lexi, she seemed so self obsessed and thought she could have any man she wanted. She seemed to me that she took advantage of people that she knew couldn’t or wouldn’t say no to her. I did warm to her at the end of the book though when she seemed to show a different side to her and her true feelings towards Theo, I wish the book had gone on a little bit longer for us to see more of this.
I loved Theo from the start, he was so innocent and there were times in the book where I wanted to shake him for being so naive and times when I just wanted to scoop him up and give him a big hug.
Angel Ray’s writing keeps the book exciting, it is fast-paced and easy to read. He puts a lot of description into the scenes and characters that you feel like you are in the room with them (although it would be pretty awkward if you were most of the time haha)!
I would recommend this book to anybody looking for a short, sexy read. It is a book that you can immerse yourself in for an hour when you need a bit of a break from life.

Mr. Innocent by Angel Ray was a scorching, sassy little tale of older woman-younger man. Lexi, owner of a spicy woman’s magazine knew what she wanted in life. Secure, dominant and pro-active, Lexi needed a new assistant. In walked Theo- fresh face and new off the farm. What transpired was raw, hot sex.
Angel Ray delivered erotica backed up with a nicely written story line. Theo’s characterization was sweet and inexperienced~ he fell fast for the career woman, allowing her to grab him by the ba*** and lead the way.
Lexi gave cougar with a mission a new nuance. A level-headed woman, Lexi’s determination to bed the younger man would not be relinquished.
Mr. Innocent lost his virginity soon enough, jumped in with both feet and steamed my e-reader.
Want a quick read that will surely leave you panting? Mr. Innocent should not be missed.
Review by Sexy Erotic Xciting Book Reviews
Lexi almost fainted when she saw Theo walk out from the changing room, wearing that tight dark-blue bikini bottom, displaying that oh-so-impressive bulge of his, and nothing else. Even Pam looked quite impressed, and she shot sexy, half-naked—and sometimes fully-naked—men for a living. The looks both women were giving Theo were clearly embarrassing him, judging from the beet-red blush on his face. Lexi wasn’t worried about that showing up in the photos that would appear in the magazine, since she could always airbrush them out. Not that he needed airbrushing in other areas, Lexi thought rather wickedly to herself.
Pam instructed Theo on his various poses, and, just like he did with her, he took instruction very well. Lexi had to cover a smile with her fingers as she thought about how well Theo would take “instruction” in bed. By the time the shoot was finally, mercifully over, Lexi was so hot and bothered, it was all she could do from jumping Theo’s hunky bones, right then and there!
When Pam asked Lexi if she wanted to look over the photos, she mouthed the word “later” and Pam nodded, knowing precisely what she meant. After Pam—along with the hair and makeup stylist—finally left, Theo gazed over at Lexi, the sexy blush still prominent on his face, and asked, “Can I go get changed now?”
“Wait a minute,” Lexi said abruptly.
Theo raised his eyebrows. “What’s wrong?”
“Nothing,” Lexi said as she started walking briskly toward him. “Nothing at all.”
She stood right in front of him, and, after giving him the once-over, asked him, “So, tell me, Theo, have you ever been with a woman before?”
Theo had a shocked expression on his face. “Uh, well,” he stammered, “not really.”
She drew her face closer to his. “Have you ever even kissed a girl before?”
“Uh, well,” he stammered again. “I did kiss my ex-girlfriend Mary Lou one time at the barn dance.”
“Mary Lou,” Lexi repeated. “How quaint!” She placed her hands on his sculpted chest, thinking how all that farm work really paid off. “Tell me something, Theo.” She looked directly into his eyes. “Would you like to kiss me?”
Theo, looking more shocked than ever, stuttered for a bit before finally saying, “I–I can’t.”
“And why’s that?”
“Well,” he began, chuckling nervously, “you’re my boss.”
“So? Nobody will have to know.” She drew her face closer to his, until their lips were almost touching. “It can be our little secret.” Theo tried looking away, but Lexi placed her hand on his cheek and made him look at her. “Come on, baby, just one little kiss.”
Lexi brushed her lips against his and, when he didn’t protest or back away from her, she smiled seductively at him before pressing her mouth against his, entwining them in a passionate kiss. Much to her surprise, and horny delight, Theo returned her kiss and didn’t run off to the changing room like she thought he might do. While kissing him, she thought to herself again, Maybe farm boy isn’t so naïve, after all!
