REVIEW: Naked (The Blackstone Affair, #1) by Raine Miller

Naked was a sexy, off the charts hot erotic romance that will definitely leave you panting for more and wishing you needed security to get you a piece of Ethan Blackstone!

I've been coming out of a funk and this was just what I needed. I'd been meaning to read this one for a while but I wanted to make sure I had the time to read both this and the sequel "All In" back to back so I wouldn't suffer through waiting for the next one.

This was a pretty terrific read. I loved the characters especially Ethan, obviously. I mean 2012 has been the year of the alpha male, possessive and sexiest heroes and Ethan Blackstone just joined that list.

Some elements of the story-line was reminiscent of some of the sexy books I read earlier this year but it only served to make the story better.

I liked Ethan's character a lot. He was sexy and took charge like a man who knew what he wanted and took it. And after seeing Brynne's portrait he wants her. I loved how he pursued her and left her no room to rebuff him. He let her know from the get-go what he wanted from her and their relationship.

“You hit me the instant I saw you." he said, gruffly. "I couldn't look away. I wanted you immediately. Excessively. Almost violently.”

There was quite a lot of sexy in this book between Ethan and Brynne. Scorch the sheets up, sexy. I mean Ethan didn't hold back with Brynne. He just told her what he wanted to do to her and it was raw and primal and so so sexy! 

This wasn't any kind of straightforward romance though, Brynne has a past, one that was hinted at but we still haven't gotten to the root of and Ethan, though we know what he does for a living, they both didn't know each other very well before embarking on their very passionate relationship.

Things were going good for them even though they had some minor rocky times in between but I don't know why I kept waiting for something to happen. Something that was really going to rock their relationship and it did come. At the end. Yep cliffhanger.

Really good overall but I just felt like it was over too quickly. Yea, I'm the reader that always wants more when the story's good. Besides that, really liked it and would recommend it.

Ready to read the sequel "All In."

4/5 stars
