    One thought on “Naked”

    1. I’ve been ruined.And it’s all thanks to E.L. James, Sylvia Day, and R.K. Lilley.You ladies ruined me with your Christian Gray, James Cavendish, and Gideon Cross.Becausenow when I come across Ethan something-or-other… I can’t even remember his last name after just finishing this book.*AND IT’S IN THE FREAKING TITLE!*___________________________________________I’m pretty sure the author went by the standard “This should make your erotic book successful” checklist: Sex against the wa [...]

    2. Dear authors,If you absolutely MUST set a book in London, then for the love of everything that is holy at least visit the city. Or find a beta reader who is a Londoner.Because I'm barely into the book and:1) The heroine remarks with surprise that the London streets are crowded for a weeknight. Dear Raine, London streets are ALWAYS crowded. I have the bruises to prove it.2) The hero buys the heroine Advil. Advil is not sold in the UK. (Editing to add: Before you feel the need to tell me I am wron [...]

    3. So this is another Fifty Shades/Bared to You style first novel in a trilogy but it’s a really good one. The style is very engaging, the characters bounce vividly to life right from the get go and it’s set in London in the run up to the 2012 Olympics – what’s not to love?I think, as you’re reading the novel, it pays to remember the prologue – it’s very short and easy to forget when you’re caught up in the story but it’s VERY IMPORTANT!!Brynne is our heroine – an American grad [...]

    4. ★★★★★! Naked, book 1 of 4. The Ethan Blackstone, larger-than-life, handsome, rich playboy and security expert extraordinaire sets out to protect his American girl in a suspenseful and deadly high-stakes political game!“That picture changed everything. I was not the same after I saw it and I couldn’t go back to the man I’d been before seeing it either. Not after we met that night on the street. My whole world altered because of a photograph. A photograph of my beautiful American g [...]

    5. Yup. I’m an Ethan Blackstone fan now! Fans of Fifty Shades and Crossfire should definitely check this series out! Naked is a quick, sizzling read. It’s hot, passionate and erotic – but in a tasteful way. The writing style is engaging, the story progresses quickly and while there is a cliffhanger, the second book is currently available so you can go straight on to it once you’re done with this one :) I was intrigued from the first paragraph and by the end of the prologue, I was hooked. I [...]

    6. What. Was. That? I get that this is a novella but serious? Put some effort into it. This was me about 15% inBut I figured it was only 100-some pages so I might as well see what was going to happen. Well. It was basically all the naughty words you could think of mixed in with NO plot. Serious. I tried to find it.And then the end. Serious? I just don’t care enough to find out what might happen in the sequel.

    7. What The Hell Was That?!?!?!I don't know what it is about this book, but I just couldn't get into it. I felt like everything developed way too fast. I had no emotional connection with the characters. The author literally tells you what to feel instead of actually making you feel that way. You know when you start reading a book and you actually feel like you're falling in love along with the characters!?!?. Ummm yeah, I didn’t get any of those feelings at all with this book except extreme bored [...]

    8. 4 Very Steamy StarsNaked is the first book in the planned The Blackstone Affair trilogy by Raine Miller. Despite the fact that it is a mere 115 pages is 115 pages of the beginnings of a great story. I was hooked right from the beginning. I’m not ashamed to admit that that reason I was immediately hooked was because of Mr. Ethan Blackstone. *FANS SELF*"That picture changed everything. I was not the same after I saw it and I couldn’t go back to the man I’d been before seeing it either. Not a [...]

    9. Review posted at: Swept Away By Romance4 1/2 Quivering Stars!! I'm in love with Ethan Blackstone!! I can see the comparisons coming already, but I don't care, I LOVED this book!! I reiterate, you can't help that books are going to have similar underlying themes, but how the story plays out, the way characters are portrayed and the skill of the author's writing, is what differentiates them and sets them apart. This one shoots straight to the top!! "That picture changed everything. I was not the s [...]

    10. 2 StarsUnfortunately, this one didn't work out. This book and the series have been on my radar ever since I heard a lot of good things about them. I was so excited last week because finally, I was able to dive into it. Okaaay so it started off well enough. The heroine Brynne Bennett was sure to be an interesting character-- an American who moved to London to study as a grad student and work at the same time as a part-time photographic model. This actually reminds me of the book that I liked, On [...]

    11. 4.5 SIZZLING ETHAN STARS"Open your eyes" he told me. I lifted them to see Ethan's face a mere inch away, his blue eyes burning hot with lust.""I'm not your girl, Ethan.""You were during that kiss Brynne." Eyes flickering, he read me, and then he inhaled. I was a damp mess between my legs and I wondered if he could smell me. "You smell so goodd f*cking sexy."This bookOMG! WowIt was surprisingly fantastic. It was sexy, hot and just plain steamy but there was a plot. It wasn't just sex there was a [...]

    12. Re read via audible. My prior comments still apply:Ethan Blackstone absolutely ROCKS! I will read this series again and again. For my safety gang friends interested. (view spoiler)[These comments apply to the entire series.The Hero was a one or two night kind of guy. Certainly not the worst manwhore.He is all in with Brynne the moment he sees her picture. So aside from one ex for each of them that show up briefly (accidental meetings at coffee shop and party), there is absolutely no OW or OM dra [...]

    13. Meet Ethan BlackstoneDo I have your attention yet?He tilted his head and spoke softly. “I want to be with you so badly right now. I want to take you home with me, and put you in my bed and have hours and hours with your body wrapped up in mine to do with as I wish. I want to have you there in the morning so when we wake up I can make you come, saying my name. I want to drive you to work and pick you up when it’s time to leave. I want to go to the shops with you and buy food we can cook for d [...]

    15. So I desperately wanted to like this book after all the amazing reviews and even a 4.11 on Good Reads. It was compared to 50 shades and Bared to you but I am beginning to think I am not reading the same book that all the reviewers readAT ALL! I think people see the word safe word and that is all it takes to have a 50 shades and Bared to you competitor (Mind you Bared to you is my fav over 50 shades). The main character is of course broken from what we still don't know but it is leaning toward so [...]

    16. I was going to wait until book two was out due to the heartbreaking cliffhanger, but after doing a little research reading other reviews and entering in the author´s webpage I was really intrigued.And of course, after finding out that David Gandy was the inspiration for Ethan I couldn´t help myself and picked the book right away. Ethan.*sigh*I was hooked after the first chapter, and the story totally captivated me. They meet and click right away, but a little too fast for my taste, I would hav [...]

    17. *****4.5 I Heart Ethan Blackstone STARS*****I've had this series on my TBR for quite some time.All I can say is I feel like kicking myself for waiting so long to read this book!!Any story that has David Gandy as the muse for the leading male character, is a book I'm more than likely going to LOVE!!!!I pretty much had to wipe the drool from my mouth the entire time I read this book, as I had very vivid pictures of Gandy in my mind!! YUMMY!!!Brynne Bennett is a young American woman, living in Lond [...]

    18. Naked - 4 ★'s (spell ckd)It all started with a picture. Ethan Blackstone was asked as a favor to watch over Brynne by her Dad. Ethan wasn't going to do it but then he saw her picture and he just couldn't resist. I just have to say upfront that I loved Ethan's vulnerability. Granted he's too dominant and too forward but I love all his reactions to all things Brynne. It was so refreshing!Both Brynne and Ethan have had tragic events happen in their pasts and as with any new relationship, they wil [...]

    19. I don't know what it was about this book, but I just couldn't get into it. You know when you read a book and you feel like your falling in love/lust along with them? Yeah, I got nothing with 'Naked'. Except bored.

    20. *^*4 Hot/Juicy ETHAN*^*stars"I want the real thing. I want you underneath me."YOU. ARE. MINE.The story starts out with Brynne, part-time model/art student meeting Ethan Blackstone after he buys her nude portrait. His dominant nature captivates Brynne despite the demons she carries inside her. She's broken and doesn't think Ethan will want her after he finds out the truth. Will this relationship survive??? This book has it all. SECRETS, LOVE, PASSION, HEARTACHE, TRUSTay tuned as this continues on [...]

    21. All right, all right. I caved. I keep skipping over the "rich man, poor little innocent girl" books because they all started running together after awhile. But it's been a couple of months since I've picked one up, and the cover of this one kept STARING at me. Admit it's eye catching.And the book is all in good erotic, American girl fantasy. We American ladies love a sexy British accentfined and elegant and chivalrous(it really just makes us want to drop our panties). This book delivers that fan [...]

This was just the right amount of well EVERYTHING high steam factor ! <--Sex scenes off the charts!! Chemistry Check “Brynne, I'm looking because I can't keep my eyes off you. [...]

    23. Oh bloody hell! Cliffie! Ughank goodness the next book is already out. I have no idea why I waited so long to read this. Ethan is A-Fucking-Mazing! On to book 2.

    24. Quick review:Cover: Love it Rating:NC-17Steaminess:Smoking Thumbs Up:4.5Overall: A book that’s hard to put downCharacters: Well donePlot: One heart, one compelling man and danger. A sexy mix. Page Turner: Yes Series Cont.? Of course Recommend:YesBook Boyfriend: EthanSUMMARY (50 words or less)Loved this book. Two complaints, it was short and straddled a line of insta love. Yet, I found it compelling and well worth the price paid. The author knew how to make a full story in a short period. I did [...]

    25. I gave this a quick re-read as I was going to start the next in the series. bit of a waste of time. Very short book - did not really do it for me. Not sure now if I will read the next one.

    26. Brynne Bennett an American Grad student studying in London, does some stylish nude modelling to supplement her income. These tasteful works of art is purchased by the stylish ex British Special Forces and now security head honcho of his own security firm, Ethan Blackstone. Ethan has to know her and makes his mind up that they definitely need to get together.Ethan - how I loved Ethan! As I was told by my friend Karla, supposedly Raine Miller has used David Gandy to model him on. Well let me tell [...]

    27. Yes! Yes! Yes! I absolutely L.O.V.E.D. Naked (The Blackstone Affair Part 1). Hot, rich, dominant alpha male Ethan meets beautiful and secretive Brynne. Their sex scenes are steamy with just enough dominance to make my pupils dialate! The story is well written, great suspense at the end and you will definitely connect with the characters. I am anxiously awaiting for Part 2 after reading the sneak peek in the back of the book. If you liked Fifty Shades, the Crossfire series, On Dublin Street, If I [...]

    28. Originally posted at fictionvixen/review-naI have admitted on more than one occasion that I am a cover whore. I have purchased my share of books due to an amazing cover and had both success and failure as a result. Naked is no exception. Combine the gorgeous cover with a handsome British hero that will pay whatever price for a nude portrait of the heroine and I was sold. Now granted the synopsis had me immediately thinking Bared/50 knock off (both books of which I did not care for) I still submi [...]

    29. This could have been so good, incredible even. It had the content, but the pacing! Oh sweet baby Jesus the pacing. It was like a book of highlights cutting out everything in between; very poor execution. I also found the dialogue between Ethan and Brynne very forced and choppy. It didn't flow naturally like a conversation should. I felt like I was reading it instead of experiencing it. One thing I will say thoughere was some definite pantie dropping hotness between these rushed pages. A few scen [...]

    30. So I thought David Gandy was just my Gabriel Emerson, but it turns out he is also my Ethan Blackstone! :) Devoured this book in one day! It was excellent & super steamy! Starting right now on All In! :)
