Five-star-feedback-on-oDesk

This book went out in the mail yesterday to my niece, Kate, and another one to her cousin, Camille, because besides being a great young children’s book about the Thanksgiving holiday it also teaches about the things we need to be thankful for, not just at this time of year but everyday. Those things are faith and family.

Great book.

Naked: The Blackstone Affair, Book 1 by Raine Miller

Book Description:

Published: August 25, 2012

Brynne Bennett is living the good life. An American art student at the University of London and part-time photographic model, she’s putting her life back on track with school and lots of hard work. When ultra successful London businessman, Ethan Blackstone, buys her nude portrait, he isn’t taking ‘no’ for an answer. He wants Brynne in his bed and makes plans to keep her there no matter what. His dominant nature captivates and ensnares despite the demons she carries inside her. But there are secrets in this relationship. Huge ones. Can Ethan free Brynne from the past that has marked her? Will Brynne let him or will the specters tormenting her resurface to destroy them both…

Review –

The narrator of this audio book really ruined this book for me because her portrayal of Ethan Blackstone was so poor. almost laughable. He reminded me of a watered down version of the American character, Gideon Cross (pant, pant) of the Crossfire series, and I just couldn’t get invested in the story so I will never know what past Brynne is running from and why an ultra successful busiest man would work for her father and  lie to her. Also, a lot of the explicit sex seemed just thrown in and not really a necessary part of the story line.

Adult.
