The third part in The Blackstone Affair series: A love on the brink of being destroyed. The fight of a lifetime to keep it alive.
Big surprises are on the horizon for Ethan and Brynne as they struggle to adjust to what life has thrown at them. Demons from the past are threatening to destroy the passionate bond they’ve forged despite their vow that nothing will ever keep them apart. A truly devastating loss coupled with the promise of a new hope opens their eyes to what is most important, but is it possible for the lovers to move on from the painful histories that continue to haunt them? A stalker is still lurking in the shadows, plotting evil amidst the distraction of the 2012 Olympic games in London. Brynne and Ethan are on the cusp of losing everything as the stakes rise. Will they yield to circumstances beyond their control or will they give every ounce of fight they have left to save each other and win the ultimate prize of a life together?
Eyes Wide Open is a passion-wrought story that shows us what pure love can achieve when tested and what the heart can accomplish despite danger and adversity.

Yes because the narrators added the foreign accents that I would have never added mentally as I read it.
This Man series by Jodi Ellen Malpas because the British hero Jesse is also a very protective alpha male who loves Ava with a similar intensity and focus as British hero Ethan loves Brynne.
Narrators Grace Grant and Shane East breathed extra pathos into Brynne and Ethan's ongoing love story. I liked their choices for voice, accent and rhythm for all of the characters.
He'll do anything to protect her.
Another excellent set of performances by Grace Grant and Shane East with a fine cameo performance by Deacon Lee as the villain! I particularly loved Ethan's little fruit/vegetable nicknames for their baby-to-be, his intense desire to protect Brynne and to be with her, always being very present in their quickly developing romance. He's now one of my top favorite BBFs.
I may be addicted to audiobooks. I love my husband and my kids but I get a chance to escape with the books and be someone else for a while
What a way to finish up the series. I love how all the books rite together. it doesn't hurt at all to have such an amazingly sexy and panty melting voice like Shane East. Grace Grant does an incredible job of her part in portraying the "scarred and broken but beautiful American girl"...
This is a true love story with some added suspense. It's about friendship and forgiveness, love and healing the scars of the past and finally finding the one that makes you whole enough to want to walk through fire and come out the other side a true victor and survivor. What would you do for true love??? To be able to spend the rest of your life with not only the live of your life but your best friend??
It also doesn't hurt that Shane has an amazingly HOT AND SEXY VOICE and gives some great detail of the awesome (and I mean AWESOME) sex scenes.... all I can say is than Brynn is a lucky girl.... even if she is a fictional charactor ...💖💕
Good story. I just am a bit tired of stories about domineering men and the women who put up with it just because of the sex being good. Still the story was good.
I loved the book so I just tried the audio to have something to do on a long flight. The narrators are a talented pair. Shane East sounded like a sexy Brit and could change to an American accent without a problem. He sounds just as I imagine Ethan would. I would listen to any book he narrates.
did not want it too end! I fell in love with Brin & Ethan. I fell in love with the whole series. the last book is already downloaded and in the que. as soon as this review is done I am off. I will have completed the first 3 books in less than 48 hours. I hope you enjoy!
This book was sheer bliss! I love the passionate. relationship between. the. two main characters. The. book. is so exciting. with it's twist. and turns that have you beginning for more. The narration is. superb. Shane East. brings Ethan Black Stone character to life. I love the Whittyness and dominant personality of the Alfa male in this story.! The female voice was quite well done,as well.
I enjoyed the whole series. But then I love Shane East's voice, too. Overall the book was good. Big twist. The UK "Shades of Grey" would have been a good title, but the female lead has more depth than that of Shades.
The sex is far more graphic and doesn't really add to the story.
Romance is my favorite and a little paranormal romance makes me happy too. (or a lot ;)
I started reading this series first then added the audio version. The audio really brought this series to life for me. I was totally sucked in.
I can not pick one character that is my favorite, they all are a part of this love story.
"Make me real, only you can do that baby, only you"
There are several moving pieces to this love puzzle but in the end it is the glue that moved me.
So many books so little time - but Audible gives me the gift of multitasking - I can get those simple tasks done AND be up on great reads.
Bryn's low self confidence is realistic, not over the top & I even appreciate that the character knows when she may be dramatic.
YES! I LOVE that Shane East reads from Blackstone's first person chapters and Grace Grant the female's. Both are convincing as the characters. This is well produced!
No. That isn't how I read. I like to sit back after an hour & think about what I read... make it last (kinda like the sex scenes - which are MOST awesome).
I appreciate Raine Miller's male protagonist: Again, not over the top - he works at an office long days, yet not crazy rich. Although I am not a man - Raine has the alpha male in the thick of passion written well.
