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.

Yes there was a good plot, and good romance.
The story Brins character compromised, but we do not find out how yet. She finds Ethan whom her dad hires for protection, and he falls hard. But omitting the truth cost him.
First time but they did very good.
Definitely and I did.
It leaves you ready to right into book two.
I liked the book, and I plan to read the others, but it's not even 4 hours long. Seems a bit ridiculous to be priced the same as 9-12 hour books.
This was a short and sweet listen that immediately sucked me in. Yes there are many similarities to 50 shades and the Crossfire novels, but the story is different enough to snag you. I loved the narration split between Grace and Shane. It's a nice change in listening and Shane just flat out did it for me. He ranks right up there with Phil Gigante. I’m a sucker for great accents. I'm also a believer in love at first site and I like stories where the love interests quickly recognize their attraction and act on it. The book ends with broken trust, so thankfully the other two are already available. I’ve jumped into book two without hesitation and I can't wait to finish the series. Don't pass this one up.
It was a great story. Narration was BRILLIANT!!!!
Both characters did it for me!
Too many to mention, but they are all bookmarked!
This book is very intense with different layers!
The crossfire series by Sylvia day or Fifty Shades
Always awesome, I want their voice on my GPS!
From page one to the end.
Yes, and so I did.
Wow, this book was awesome. I just bought the second book, I hope the story and romance is as good as the first book. Ethan is my new fictional boyfriend :)
The Mortal Instruments
Its was the same story or 50 Shades and Bared to You. Same type of male and female charactors...same messed up lives...just different names. Very predicable if you've read 50 Shades and Bared to You.
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.
I do not just want to read books; i wish i could climb in and live there.
YES! Great Author, great series and brilliant narration; very enjoyable.
Brynne Bennett and Ethan Blackstone!!!!! Sorry loved them both! <3
I love Grace Grant's narration haven't ever listened to a book of herS that I haven't liked :)Shane East does a great job too! They complement each other. I will be watching out for more books with his narration.
Would have loved to but had to go to work. :(
I can't wait for the next instalment Mr Blackstone is so yummy !
