Review: NAKED by Raine Miller
The first book in the bestselling Blackstone Affair trilogy! Naked desire. Secret Satisfaction. An affair you’ll never forget.
Brynne Bennett has left scandal in her past and is living the good life. An American grad student at the University of London and part-time photographic model, she’s getting back on track with lots of hard work and focus on a career in art conservation. When successful and charismatic London businessman Ethan Blackstone buys her nude portrait, he wants to possess more than just her image. He wants Brynne in his bed, serving him in every way possible. He has no trouble voicing his desires, and he isn’t taking “no” for an answer.
At first, his dominant nature captivates her, but it isn’t clear if the force of his powerful desire will ultimately awaken or dispel the demons Brynne is carrying inside. There are secrets on both sides of this relationship—huge ones. Can Ethan erase the scars of Brynne’s past so that she can reveal her true self to him? Or will the shadows cast by Ethan’s own mysterious former life destroy their chance at happiness?
Naked is the sizzling, unforgettable story of what happens when a strong woman meets the one man powerful enough to strip away all her defenses, leaving her standing naked and perfect before him.
Abby: Ethan Blackstone, is overbearing, jealous, handsome, rich, sexy, erotic, seductive and just plain HOTT! He is British, who does not love a good accent?
For once in Ethan’s hot existence he is in it for more than just a quick lay. He sees Brynne and it’s pretty much love at first sight for him. Brynne bears internal scars that are only beginning to be uncovered and Ethan brings out a side to her that not many see and that Ethan wants all to himself.
This book is sex. I was reading it late at night and this book is so damn sexy I almost woke my sleeping husband up. This is a very quick read, read it in a few hours. It is entertaining and sexy as hell!
Thank god this is just the start of the series…need some more Ethan!
Dawn: Whew! Turn up the A/C because Ethan is going to get you HOT!! Powerful, possessive, and passionate would be how I would describe Ethan Blackstone.
Brynne is vulnerable and is drawn almost against her better judgment into a relationship with him. The sex is hot with an undercurrent of tenderness seen by the way he touches her and takes care of her. I loved the start of this series and was left at the end saying “nooooo!” and “thank god there’s another book!”.
Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it’s a safe bet she’ll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine’s stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A part-time teacher and writer of sexy romance stories every other chance she gets pretty much fills her days. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.
