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.
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.
Sorry. I seriously don't know why I just read this now. But I've no regrets
over that part. Let me just imagine Ethan for a while. With his goatee. That I
just can't imagine. And his mesmerizing eyes. He's swoon-worthy, yes but you
know, something still lack the story and there are salient points that I just
need to point out. That's why they're salient.
just so freaking intense. It was overwhelming. And short. The story moves in a
very fast pace and I can't seem to stop reading. Brynne and Ethan's story
consumed me like a candle. I've no regrets reading the book! It's
reader-friendly, but should not be read by readers 17 and below due to mature
unfolds as Brynne tries to forget the impossible. Then he meets Ethan
Blackstone. Her life went from agonistic to peaceful when she became the
girlfriend. I know it's super weird but life happens and they happen. It sort
of threw me off at first because it felt like reading another Fifty Shades
story. You get all the modesty at first that soon blooms into fiery sexy
characters that just seem to not get enough of each other. It's uncanny how it
always happen that way.
concept and ideas were acceptable, the cover was, I must say, really awesome
and magnificent. It shows this experience Brynne has been through and the black
concept, well, just shows the mature contents that lie inside the story. It was
just really condescending how it ended just like how Anna left Christian. But
you know, on the bright side, it's intoxicating. It draws the reader to full
bliss and mixed emotions. The agony, you can really feel. The exchange of conversations,
lines, seemed so real. It's like watching a movie yet, you are a part of a
movie. It's a moving story that will bring you to a totally Naked imagination.
I love the story. It got me hooked but I wasn't satisfied.
