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.

The story overall is so and so, as I had expected. But the narration is very very bad. Especially the male voices were the worst. The main male character's voice sounded like a cave man!
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
WOW, this book is So very capturing. It Gras you from the start and doesn't let you go Then it leaves you rushing Greedily to listen to the next book in this Perfect series. Thanks Raine Miller for writing such a wonderful story that it has left me wanting - I WAN'T SO MUCH MORE OF THIS STORY that i am straight onto book 2 :)
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
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.
I enjoyed the book, the characters & the sex. I however feel a little short change in the story department. I feel lime character info was lacking and how fast we got to the goods . still enjoyed book & looking forward to the next book.
I guess I really liked this because I went and bought the next one in the series right away(and the next and the next). It did have great characters, I'll say that. And the story was somewhat believable although it does get a little far-fetched in the next few books. Nonetheless, the back story about a girl who was brutally raped as a teen and a man who suffered from PTSD after a stint in Afganistan, worked well to create chemistry between the two. I like that Bryanne wasn't a pushover, she seemed like a strong American woman for the most part. The narration was awesome, by the way----Shane East has the sexiest voice ...I had to google him just to see what he looked like, I couldn't find his picture. :( Oh well, it's probably for the best.
I'm not big on cliff hangers. I'm not impressed with this story. It's not terrible, it's just average.
Love to read and when i'm busy I'll take an audiobook.
This was the first book i've heard with two narrators and I enjoyed it. I didn't mind how they went back and forth taking turns. It really helped bring the characters to life for me. Much like Fifty, you have plenty of hot erotic sex, which sometimes was a tad bit too much for me. Story was good though.
I would definitely recommend. This book is so sweet, love at first sight for him and almost for her...Awesome read, steamy romance scenes...just the best book
When the couple met for the first time at the art gallery. Then later in the book when you find that it wasn't their first meeting at all.
They are just an Amazing Duo
Let's get "Naked" together
Great read worth every penny or credit...
This book would have been 5 stars except it moved way too fast and was too short. The beginning needed to be developed more. I like to get to know the characters first, which is why I don't like movies.
