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.

    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!

    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.

    "Lacking..."

    I was so bored with this, I returned it. I wasn't even going to bother with a review, but I feel like there are too many people - obviously - who don't like to be negative and so all you get are fawning reviews from the easily impressed. I mean, that's my best guess.

    I liked Fifty Shades, but this wanna-be, copy-cat really lacked the depth, character development and plot that Fifty had - and since the latter wasn't exactly great literature, that's saying a lot.

    It was weak when the heroine's impression and inner dialogue told me that the "hero" was "dominate" before she had a real reason to think so. I guess we were just supposed to know from all the other similarities to Fifty...

    There seem to be so many knockoffs of popular books... and I, like others, go looking for for another compelling read in the same vein, but all too often are disappointed.

    "Horrible narration!"

    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!

    Story
    "ok listen"
    Any additional comments?

    A very short story of three hours only. It seems like they broke a 9 hr. story to three and six just to make the set into a trilogy. The story does not have anything special to offer or any special twists and turns but overall an ok listen. I bought the trilogy set at the same time because of listener ratings and now not quite sure if that was a good idea. R Miller tries to create a story similar to 50 Shades in the hopes of winning readers. Similarities start with both girls posing in pix for a photo gallery. Next, lead female characters from both books are students and to complete this parallelism they both have very wealthy good-looking guys fall for them harder than they do for their men. Lastly, the female characters are both from single parent families and are closer to their dads. Hope the second book does not continue in the shadows of 50 Shades.

    "Unique storyline"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Naked to be better than the print version?

    Yes, Shane East's voice makes it


    What other book might you compare Naked to and why?

    not sure


    Have you listened to any of Grace Grant and Shane East ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Great work


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

    Yes, but since I didn't I listened to it more than once

    "Just ok"

    It was way too rushed for me with poor character development. Even if it is a series this first book did not have enough substance. If an author wants to entice readers to continue then you need to care enough about the characters to want to know more. Too bad

    "If You Like Gideon Cross You will Like Ethan"
    What made the experience of listening to Naked the most enjoyable?

    I am a sucker for characters like this. Girl with scarred past - Passionate overprotective man who loves her, wants to help her... etc. This is very similar to Crossfire.


    Any additional comments?

    I should have paid attention to the fact that this book is not even 4 hours long... I was startled when it ended (in the very predictable spot - same as crossfire, same as 50 shades).
