No strings. No regrets. And no going back....
"I didn't think he wanted me. And I wasn't about to get involved with him, not after what I'd heard. Sure, Alex Kennedy was tall, dark, and unbearably hot, but I've been burned before. When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session. And now that we've crossed that line, our bodies aren't the only things that have been exposed.
But I can't give my heart to a man who's so...unconventional. His last sexual relationship was with a married couple. It's enough that my ex-fiancee preferred men; I can't take that chance again, no matter how much my body thrives on Alex's touch. I can't risk it, but I can't resist it, either.

First, I have to point out the publisher's summary quote: "When I solicited him to model for my erotic photography book, I didn't expect such a heated, passionate photo session.".That is NOT what happened. Did they read the book? That's all I'm going to say, no spoilers.
I read this book based on reviews and I had already read Tempted. I also realized there was a brief recap of the story from Alex's point of view and bought it ebook form. I love getting all character's POV Loved Alex's POV in the short. I felt very strongly about Alex in Tempted, but felt cheated in character development. It was even more so in Naked. I suppose this is because I don't like first person narrative stories, they are so limited.The women in these books got all the attention. We did find out a smidgen about Alex in Tempted but it was glossed over and unexplained in Naked. If you haven't read Tempted be sure to read it first.
The religious issues in the book were annoying and Olivia's mother was not a nice person IMO. If the intent of the book was to accept people for who they are then momma needed to go back to school.
There were some very hot scenes, especially the ones where they don't actually have sex, oral or otherwise. The studio scene was very erotic and well done.
The issues with Teddy and Patrick were left unresolved. I thought there should have been more light shed upon Patrick's deceit. It was totally unfair that Olivia was left holding the blame for all of Patrick's problems and that she never defended herself. That was wimpy, not gallant.
I didn't understand how Olivia got so upset about Jamie and Anne. Sure he didn't give her a head's up on the situation, but way over the top on her reaction. I suppose a conflict to end the book was needed. The end was very abrupt. A bit unrealistic that after her silent treatment and self-righteousness she did a 180 and we had a HEA.
I hated the voice used for Anne!
A very good erotic story, just read it and enjoy, don't over-think it.
I love to read and have used it as a way to visit other countries and other worlds. Audible allows me to fit more books into my busy schedu
The book's description concerning the plot is deceptive because it implies that the heroine knows about Alex's relationship with the married couple from the beginning. Interesting somewhat disturbing romance about accepting people for who and what they are to you without preconceived judgement given by society. Interesting but had to read more than once to understand all the nuances.
Was really hot in parts and was quite "real" her fears of his preferences and the wonder about what was stronger and finally admitting what was her ultimate fear at the end...I got it. There are some things that was introduced in the book that seemed to have no purpose but could have been a pivotal area yet was just dropped.
i love megan hart and i wanted so much to love this book, but... i don't know. I love Alex and i love Jack and was so excited to see on her website that they would both be in this one. but jack's story line left him an unfinished ending i thought. i love him and wanted to see at least a possiblity of a happy life. expecially with sarah in this too after there date in Stranger. Alex i don't feel was a well developed charactor in this book and wouldn't feel i know him if i hadn't already read tempted. the narrator when she read for sarah i wanted to scream and cringe a little. i don't feel sarah was done justly. but for the good. i like Olivia. i would listen to it again. i love megan hart, this book will in no way turn me off to her. Alex and Jack or 2 or my 3 favorite men from her book's i guess i just wanted a little more for them. creative differences.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
I should have listened to Tempted again before listening to this story. This listen was just ok for me. There was a lot of history that needed to come out...too many unanswered questions. This story was mainly just sex....The ending was beginning to get a little interesting and then it was over. The narration was ok.
Wow surprising story. Not sure what I was expecting but I found myself pulling for them to make it. They have their share of the past coming up and back to haunt them, jealous and deceitful meddling friends. Their pasts are filled with heartache, pain and confusion. You will be pulled in by the main characters as they struggle for personal discovery, acceptance and love.
****** this is a pretty good book but Megan Harts books sometimes need a little bit of a better ending or even just a little more info!!!!!!!!!
the book would have been great in my opinion if it finished strong and with FIRM resolution. the ending was the biggest disappointment for me because i like a HEA (Happily Ever After) at the end of my romance type books. To me it felt like the "And they lived happily ever after" was thrown on as an after thought instead of spending time writing a firm conclusion to things. the ending left me feeling that Olivia was playing the fool once again by ending up in the same situation. it would not surprise me if there was a book in the future featuring Alex and James both divorced.
I was not expecting what I got when I ordered this book. However, that being said, the author did a magnificent job with weaving the story and bringing the reader into the emotions of the characters. I laughed, I cried and I ground my teeth over the nonsense going on. (sorry, no spoilers here!) I finished a couple of days ago and I'm not exactly sure yet why the storyline disturbed me so much. I'm okay with the bi-sexual stuff, I'm fine with the gay stuff, but there was something in there that left me feeling emotionally drained. Don't misunderstand me please! This book was an amazingly well written and complex piece of work! The fact that I'm still thinking about it and still discomfited by the storyline proves that! Megan Hart is very talented and I'm not disappointed that I spent a credit on the book. The sex scenes were HOT and the characters very well developed. It was worth the credit, if for nothing else than to get you to think about how you'd handle some of the situations that popped up. I'm giving it 4 stars because of the quality of the writing skill alone. I'm not sure yet where I'd put the rating based on the story itself, but maybe someday I'll figure it out.
I tried to get through this book. I am certainly not a prude, so it wasn't the
