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.
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!
