The Blackstone Affair Part 1

Naked is a sizzling hot novel that will leave readers both nearly breathless in anticipation for the next novel and also head over heels in love with both Brynne and Ethan. As characters, both of them have had horrendous betrayals in their pasts, but they are both stronger for it. The story takes off in a whirlwind at the start, grabs a reader, and never lets go. The story is somewhat similar to the enormously popular Fifty Shades trilogy, without all of the blatant bdsm references. It is similar in that, like Fifty Shades, this novel (soon to be a trilogy from my understanding) will be beloved of readers such as me for years to come. This is a truly beautiful story and I can hardly wait to begin on the next adventure of Brynne and Ethan.

Brynne Bennett is a survivor. She is also a gorgeous American girl in England doing modeling for a friend. Nude artistic modeling. When a single portrait attracts the attention of the fabulously wealthy and gorgeous Ethan Blackstone, Brynne 's world is turned upside down. In true British fashion, Ethan sweeps Brynne off her feet and right into his black Range Rover, then straight into his bed. What follows is a steamy love story that will leave readers breathlessly awaiting the next novel, All In. Can Brynne and Ethan work out their differences and learn to trust each other? Take a ride with Brynne and Ethan and watch what evolves. You won't be disappointed.

Book Blurb for Naked

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.
