All In by Raine Miller

The second part in The Blackstone Affair series!
Looming danger. A love worth fighting for. A man who’ll go all in. Ethan Blackstone has a problem on his hands. He’s broken Brynne’s trust and she’s left him. He’s unwilling to live without her and isn’t giving up—he’s dead-set on getting his beautiful American girl back. The passion between them was explosive, but the secrets they hid from each other are dark and chilling and are powerful enough to destroy their shot at a life together. With political threats now directed at Brynne, Ethan is running out of time and he’ll need to gather all his strength and agility to protect her from the dangers that could take her away from him forever. Will Ethan be able to save Brynne from a past that keeps her locked in fear? Will he ever feel the warmth of her touch, the solidity of her trust again? This is a love-struck man who is willing to do whatever it takes to possess the heart of the woman he loves. He’ll go to any lengths to protect her. He’ll go all in.
 Here is the fiery story of what happens when two people surrender to a love so great it can heal the scars of the past and give way to a life of pure, rapturous ecstasy.

My thoughts:

Wow, this was a stellar follow up to Naked! I loved learning more about who Ethan  is, and having his perspective on things. I also loved meeting his family and seeing how he interacted with them. Poor Brynne, my heart broke for her and the awful things she had to endure. I found myself thinking of her like a best friend. The steamier scenes did not disappoint either. I was impressed with how well written this book was as well.
Great job Raine!! I look forward to the next book in the series Eyes Wide Open!!

Naked by Raine Miller

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.

My thoughts:

I really enjoyed this book a lot, more for the relationship aspect than the steamy scenes. Although the steamy scenes were really well written, a lot of times with erotica books, you get taken out of the story with all the sex, not the case with this book.
Brynne was wonderfully wounded and fragile. I wanted so bad for her to just let Ethan take care of her and keep her safe. Her inner war with herself about him was interesting, she wanted him, but was afraid to let him in.
Ethan was the perfect blend of cocky and vulnerable. I couldn't help but fall in love with him. Heck, I wanted him to take care of me too lol. 
Well done Raine! As soon as I finished this book, I started book 2, can't wait to dive back into it tonight!

Spring Blog Hop

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

You guessed it...time for another blog hop giveaway!!  I chose to give away book one in Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. I think I have read this book at least five times, it's so so good.
