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.

    "Good....but......"

    Yes, this store is a combination of Fifty Shades + Bared to you! I did like the store, however I felt that it was rushed. The book definately should have had more substance and it was too short.

    "Blown away!!!"

    I was having a hard time deciding if this book was worth the credit because of the length. But I’m so glad I read the reviews and got it! I loved every minute of this book. Two chapters in I bought the next three books! Worth the credit or purchase price.

    WARNING: Cliff hanger ending. You'll want the next book immediately!

    Story
    "Started out boring but damn did it get good"
    Where does Naked rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    well this was my first audio book so I can't compare.


    What other book might you compare Naked to and why?

    it has a "50 shades of grey" and "bared to you" vibe, because it has the elements of a strong business man, and a normal girl who is beautiful (but who doesn't know it). They are initially strangers but are drawn to each other, have hot sex, discover each others inner demons and fall in love.


    What does Grace Grant and Shane East bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I actually don't really like Grace Grant's voice, I picture Byrn as young and beautiful but Grace's voice does not really capture it, and I was hoping that Shane East(mans voice) would read Eathan's part but he just reads the prologue and Grace does an annoying job of deepening her voice for Eathan's character. But I love the story and I have learned to tolerate her voice.


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

    not at first but as soon as Ethan Blackstone laid eyes on Byrn it got so good.


    Any additional comments?

    I heard the 2nd book is so good,

    "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
    "It's an ok book, but it's expensive"
    What disappointed you about Naked?

    It was expensive for such a short novel. I've paid way less for books five times as long.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story was ok.


    Any additional comments?

    Lower the price.

    "Sexy Romance"

    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.
