Naked by Raine Miller

The first book in the bestselling Blackstone Affair trilogy! 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 successful and charismatic 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.

Brynne just sounds sexy. She is an accomplished model (nude) and has made a life for herself in Britain after she had to kind of flee a bad situation in the states. Her past has made her cautious and unable to maintain any amount of intimacy with men. She is close with her father and cares a lot about him. Her mother... well, she's another story. I love how Brynne was so confident in herself, especially given her assault during her high school years. I do wish that we were given more of the backstory, but think that would have taken away from the romance that Brynne and Ethan begin.

Ethan is just yummy. I can totally hear his accent and just want him to hug me. He is written with such vivid description that I can really see how he moves, what he sounds like, and how much he instantly cares for Brynne. Not only is he very successful in what he does – which is security – but he also has, for some reason, been unlucky in the love department. He is close with his sister and her family, and loves his dad, which I loved.

Benny was just a great character who I wished would get his own story at some point too. He seems to have a great eye, and his flamboyant nature is just fun to read.

When Ethan and Brynne really start firing up the sheets, they leave nothing out. Their chemistry is hot and they also have dialogue, which only helps the situation. Ethan and Brynne both fall quick and hard, but when things come to a head, it's not really known whether or not they can survive.

I will say that this doesn't really have an ending that is satisfactory – it's not exactly a cliffhanger, but there are several stories afterwards.

New York Times bestselling author Raine Miller finds as much happiness in writing romances as she does in reading them. Ever since she picked up her first romance novel at thirteen years of age, she’s been hooked. Filthy Rich—the first book in her all-new series, Blackstone Dynasty—is Raine’s latest contemporary romance.

Raine lives with her handsome husband, brilliant sons, and two very bouncy (but beloved) Italian greyhounds.
