 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…

I dare you to read Naked and not fall in love with the Goatee, Tattoo, sexy alpha male hero Ethan. Who is a upfront, sexy dirty talking, protective hero that is what you see is what you get. Who for his reasons should stay away from Brynne sexually but seems he can not keep his hands off of her. He is not your beat around the bush kind of guy. He is to the point and demands answers when ask a question.
Loved them together as they were playful like in a real relationship and steamy-need-a-cold shower got in the bedroom, but the downer for me was already within 2 weeks she moved in and it was instant  love.
The repetitiveness  of his eye color was a bit overdone. By Chapter nine I got he had blue eyes. Even though the huge secret is really not actually revealed till the end as to why he is with her. I still had an idea with all the clues. Wish it was more secretive to where I did not guess right away and was more surprised when Naked ended with the cliffhanger. Even though I knew, I could not swipe my kindle fast enough to find out when Brynne would find out. 
I enjoyed it enough to continue The Blackstone Affair series to see where Ethan and Brynne are headed.
