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
Each book in the Blackstone Affair progressively gets better and better, and Rare and Precious Things is most definitely no exception... Finishing up Rare and Precious Things was so bittersweet for me. I've LOVED this series, these characters, this amazing journey Ms. Miller has taken us on every step of the way. I never wanted it to end!... Leave it to the amazing Raine Miller to give us an ending that will satisfy every part of you...mind, body, and soul.
Ethan and Brynne are finally married, and they even have a baby on the way... Brynne doesn't want to know the sex of the baby until she gives birth, so it was a long, anticipated wait for the big reveal. During the wait, we get to see Brynne and Ethan as a married couple, and even though the two have a few bumps along the road, they truly are meant to be together... I seriously love the romance that Raine Miller has created between Ethan and Brynne. It’s so beautiful, heartfelt, romantic, epic, and heart-stoppingly sexy......Perfection... :)
If you have bought book 3 which is excellent u don't need book4...
No new thoughts are in book 4.
Book 4 is like a reflection of book 3
This book had so much potential for moving the story forward in the series. However, the author chose to repeat and review content that was covered in the previous books instead. Don't the characters have any new emotions, new things to focus on? How many times in the series does the author really need to explain how the couple met?
I fell madly in love with Ethan Blackstone and his filthy mouth in Naked (book 1), and continued to be blown away throughout the series. Ethan's and Brynne's whirlwind, action packed, erotic romance has been such a joy to follow.
I couldn't wait for the final installment, and although I definitely enjoyed this one, I found it was a tad anticlimactic as I awaited the arrival of Baby Blackstone. Where the previous books had suspense and major intensity, this story was sweeter, slower paced, and more settled. The saving grace as always, is Ethan--I love him, and love the man that breathed life into this dynamic character--Shane East! He is one of the best narrator's I've heard. He imparts so much passion into Ethan's character, I feel like I'm feeling whatever Ethan is going through in that moment. Overall, I highly recommend this series and will continue to purchase Raine Miller books.

First, I have to say that I am annoyed with Audible for not putting this book on the home page as a book that I would be interested in based on my past purchases, seeing as I have the other three books in my library. I just stumbled upon it by accident as I was browsing the website the other day.
With that out of the way, my reaction to this book was "meh". The author basically tied up loose ends from the other three books, but that could have been done with an epilogue at the end of Eyes Wide Open. There's really not much in the way of more story in this book. It just felt like an excuse to extend the series in an attempt to get more money out of consumers.
Normally I love Grace Grant and Shane East, but in this book, Grant seemed very tentative in her narration. She slowed down and seemed to leave too much time between sentences. That's my main criticism of her performance in this book, but other than that, she did a good job - but not as good as she usually does.
Shane East did a good job, on par with his past performances. I have to say, though, when he reads a sex scene, it can be a bit over the top. If I'm listening at home, it's okay, but if I'm listening in my car, I have to pull over! :) He really puts it all out there, so good for him!
Bottom line for me is that it was an okay book. If you really liked the first three books, you will probably want to get this one to find out a few things, but overall, it just felt like a way to get more money out of me.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen. When I retire I hope to hear waves crashing in 1 ear and audible in the other!
Loved everything about this final chapter for Ethan and Brynn. This is book #4, sexy as the others with a satisfying conclusion. The narration was so hot, I love Shane and Grace, they truly made the characters real!
Yes because I loved to first set of books. Needed closure
Yes the other books in this series. This was my least favorite. Seemed a bit forced. An attempt to stretch it out.
I could not stand his performance. He is too theatrical. Very forced acting. He has a nice voice but needs to lay off a bit. Relax not so dramatized.
If you loved the first books then you have to read it. Just have to finish their story. If you were "so so" with them don't waste the credit. You will live without this one.
Busy mom who loves to read but doesn't always have the time. I enjoy YA, Romance and the occasional Best Seller.
I loved this conclusion to the Blackstone Affair. Ethan is one of my all-time favorite book boyfriends. Even though this could have been an epilogue I am so glad the author decided to give us a fourth book instead. I love Ethan and Brynne and I enjoyed this final journey of love and healing. It was the perfect conclusion. I also love Shane East and Grace Grant as the narrators.
5 star listen!
Both were excellent. It was easy to sync between the spoken word and the audio.
Loved the British accent and the slang.
This is my first time listening to the male narrator but I could listen to him ALL day! he sounded so dreamy...
anytime the male narrator said "my beauty", and "my beautiful American girl". I swooned!
I am always multitasking and enjoy listening to a good story. I completely enjoyed every book in this series. The narration was perfect and captivating.
