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.

Once again, Grace Grant is a great narrator in her native language. While this story is fun, the shifting and evolving effort at a British accent just killed it for me. Sorry. Just can't do this one.
No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
Hot, sexy, intrigue
This is reminds me (thus far) of the Bared to You Series by Sylvia Day
Both main characters interest me and I want to know more!
When Brynne is talking with her dad about the replacement of the US Vice Presidential ticket. This whetted my appetite to here more about Brynne's secret.
I was intrigued with what caused Brynne's nightmare the first time she spends the night with Ethan and her need to get away. I want to know more about both of these character's pasts as well as their futures.
In my opinion, this was quite expensive for such a short book (only 3+ hours). However, the book is long enough to really grab your attention on so many different levels. The next two in series are much longer and the same price as the first-so I guess that averages the cost.
Contains mature themes and strong language
both, i read the book first! but audio let me do everything while listing
blackstone! who dont want a good looking guy !
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.
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 :)
Develop a believable and likable Hero....Ethan is such a **s, that I kept hoping for his demise.
Also "power exchange" is becoming a OVER USED theme in erotica/romance novels.
Ethan...not even close to being a believable character. He is a jerk!
Their performance vocally brings right into the middle of the story.
Greater depth about the relationship. The model used here is nothing but a really shallow shell for just "hooking-up".
How ever the sexy scenes are very good!
It was well worth the distraction. The narration was great, good story with well heated scenes.
Say something about yourself!
This book has many similar elements to 50, the dominant alpha rich man, the girl he can't stay away from and must have, even the you are MINE moment, but as much as people like to bash 50 there was a build up in that story that didn't exist in this one, but for less than 4 hours long what can you expect?
The steamy scenes were steamy and graphic and there was a lot of sexual tension but ultimately everything came pretty easy and I missed the drama, the intensity, the edge of your seat moments...the rooting for the characters to figure it out already you belong with each other!!!!! Most of that was just missing and it left me with the feeling that I missed 8 chapters or so of the chase.
Ultimately my rating is a 3.5, I also feel that due to the length it was too expensive, but I did download book two and will likely finish the series, it's just not what I hoped for.
Left me wanting. The author never grabbed me! The ending was so corny!!!! A teeny bopper novel (minus the sex).
