Publisher's Summary

The first book in the bestselling Blackstone Affair series.

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 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.

    "Wow!!!!! I'm speechless."

    What a great listen! In a similar vein of FSOG, Bared to you, etc. etc. this book was delicious. It's a quick listen so things get straight to the point. I would be remiss not to immediately mention that two seconds in when the male narrator Shane East began speaking I knew this was going to be a scorcher! Grace Grant is good too, but I can't wait to get to book 2 when it's all Shane. I already am intrigued by the characters, especially Ethan---yummy! This seems to be the beginning of a dramatic romance, and I am HOOKED. I listened to this practically in one sitting. As it was coming to the end as I prepared to leave for work, I was almost late leaving because I HAD to immediately buy books 2 & pre-order 3 so my listening wouldn't be interrupted!

    "So worth it!!! (Thanks audible reviewers)"

    WOW! This is why I love audible! I never would have bothered with this book (due to the price and length) but thanks to the reviewers I follow I took a chance! THANK YOU fellow listeners....this one was perfect! And so worth the credit! I loved it so much I already downloaded the 2nd and pre-ordered the 3rd.

    I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.

    "SENSATIONAL"

    I loved this book. It has everything I enjoy in listening to an audio book. I'm immediately going to listen to the next book in the series!!!! LOVE IT. So you know I'm going to say this one is totally worth the credit or purchase price. Just be warned you will have to get the next book in the series.

    Story
    "Love At First Sight"

    I purchased this book based on the reviews and wasn't disappointed. Ethan and Brynne were unforgettable, the story was intriguing, the romance was good, old-fashioned loving (while still on the hot side). The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the serialized feel to it. The book was too short and I feel should have been combined with book 2. Having said that I am totally captivated by the story and listening to book 2 now. The sex scenes are really hot and the narration is fantastic.

    "Sexy, Erotic Story"

    I have read both books in the series and waiting for book 3 Eyes Wide Open which I have pre-ordered. I'm not going to give you a synopsis of the story line you can read that your self. If your not into erotic sensual dominate males this is not for you, those that are it lovely to hear story come to life with Grace Grant narrating their story Brynne Bennett and Ethen Blackstone. Looking forward to book 2 All In when it's available to download.

    Story
    "WOW what a great start"
    Where does Naked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is starting to be a great top ten!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It had everything I wanted, A story line, suspense, intrigue, great sex, (who don't like that in a love story..hey, hey!!!) And an ending that had me wanting more. So I got the second book, Up until wee hours of the morning until it was finished. Loving this so far. Thanks for the reviews for those that I follow, You talked me into it and I can't thank you enough. LOVE IT Was said for the time limit. Wanted more to have to hang on to. but have the second one now and beginning to hear his POV.. Can't wait..


    Which scene was your favorite?

    For me..it was her coming to his office for the first time.. but then later I found out why he was in such a hurry to find out where she was at. and how the office was looking at her and they were happy he had someone. . Shame, shame, he should of told her in the beginning how you came into her life. And oh the Mexican dinner was cute also..


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but I would of listen to all of this one for 9 hours.. As soon as I ordered it, I noticed the time and it pains me that one credit was only for a few hours. Then after listening, heck I may of paid for it.. It's so worth it.


    Any additional comments?

    OH My goodness this was a good listen. I am really starting to love this narrator. I have listened to her in a couple of my other fav's and she does a UK or Irish man;s voice well now. Beautiful Stranger comes to mind. . She has really fined tuned those skills.. Now I am about to listen to his POV. Can;t wait to here his,, Also just to get you started here, They fall for one another fast, and it's a good thing, She needs him to protect her not only from what is going on around her in London,( the 2012 Olympic are beginning to ramp up) but in her past.. (They all have a horrid past, but in some sort of way, don't we all?) But he is so good, kind lovable and good looking to boot. So now they are on the they..traveling in part to a great and healthy relationship on all accounts when a strange phone call comes when they are ...well... about to have desert or even lunch and she finds out he is not who he says he is..or rather, he wan't completely honest with her on what he does OUCH,, that hurt..but she is crazy about him...This is going to be a great book and hopefully at the end of all of this..I won't be saying, this sounds so familiar.. The love scenes in this book are wonderfully yummy.. love it so far.

    "Started out boring but damn did it get good"
    Where does Naked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    well this was my first audio book so I can't compare.


    What other book might you compare Naked to and why?

    it has a "50 shades of grey" and "bared to you" vibe, because it has the elements of a strong business man, and a normal girl who is beautiful (but who doesn't know it). They are initially strangers but are drawn to each other, have hot sex, discover each others inner demons and fall in love.


    What does Grace Grant and Shane East bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I actually don't really like Grace Grant's voice, I picture Byrn as young and beautiful but Grace's voice does not really capture it, and I was hoping that Shane East(mans voice) would read Eathan's part but he just reads the prologue and Grace does an annoying job of deepening her voice for Eathan's character. But I love the story and I have learned to tolerate her voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    not at first but as soon as Ethan Blackstone laid eyes on Byrn it got so good.


    Any additional comments?

    I heard the 2nd book is so good,

    Yes, this store is a combination of Fifty Shades + Bared to you! I did like the store, however I felt that it was rushed. The book definately should have had more substance and it was too short.

    Any additional comments?

    Let me see... Impoverished student meets 'drop-dead-gorgeous' billionaire who takes complete control of her life. She can't get enough of him, and he of her; his manhood is always monstrous and hard as iron; he only needs to touch her and her panties (if she is wearing any) are almost washed away in a tidal wave of her juices and every orgasm she has is 'the best she has ever had'...
    Where have we heard that before?
    OK, he only threatens to spank her, but that, and the names of the main characters are about the only differences from the 'original'
    Is it good? Yes, I suppose so.
    Is it original? No.
    Will I be paying for the rest of the series? Sorry, no.

    "Naked does exactly what it says on the tin."

    Brynne's character is charming and lovable. It lacks depths but this book makes up for it in excitement. Blackstone's infatuation with Brynne will make you want to come back for more. Steaming romance that will get you hot and bothered in no time.
