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 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.
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 enjoyed the story, and the characters. I really do not like these 'cliff hangers' where you don't have any idea about the ending without buying another of the authors books. Kind of a ripoff. Nevertheless, I have bought the next book to find out how the story resolves. I just hope it doesn't require me buying Another to find out. If so, that'll be it for this author for me.
I love it but I wish it was longer!!!!!! It was to quick and should have been fully written to make it more captivating! But aside from that I loved it! I just bought the next one! Lol💕
It is like the first 1/4 of a book. You get the characters, introduction of the conflict (does he love her or is it the job?!?!) then it ends.
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.
