All In by Raine Miller

And the saga continues… But with a twist! We are treated to Ethan’s POV. YAY!

“All In” picks up where “Naked” left off. I am happy to say that Ethan is just as sexy as I remembered – totally yummy. I truly missed his filthy mouth and excited to report he is raunchier than ever.

All in is Ethan’s strategy – His heart is all in the game and the stakes are high.  Being a gambler, he knows how high the risks are, and the payout is the possession of Brynne, if he plays his hand smart.

“All of your things are still there waiting for you. Just know this… I have no intentions of letting you go… If you come with me you’re signing on for all of me, Brynne. I don’t know any other way to be with you. It’s all in for me. And I want it to be all in for you too.”
“All in?” She brought her palm to my cheek and held it there, her questioning look so genuine.
I turned my lips to press them into the palm of her hand as she held my face. “A poker term. Means to bet everything you have on the cards you’re holding. You’re what I’m holding.”

Brynne has all of Ethan – she owns him heart, body and soul. Ethan will stop at nothing to protect her.  His love for Brynne is all consuming and experiencing their journey from his POV introduced me to a different side of Ethan.  There are cracks in his armor… he displays confidence, but there’s his underlying fear.  He is a cocky S.O.B. but underneath lays a man utterly in love to the point of desperation.

More secrets come to light, introducing a better insight to Brynne hidden past, her fears, traumas and heartache and it is up to Ethan to guard her and shield her from the forces trying to destroy her.

But, Ethan’s clandestine past has yet to be revealed. And, the more secrets are unraveled, the more mystery and intrigue lies beneath.  I’m left hanging again… waiting to see what turn of events and plot twists are in store for this sexy couple.

Naked by Raine Miller

Brynne Bennett is a beautiful American student who has left her home in the states to live in London.  As a university student living in England for the past few years, Brynne has managed to create a new life, forge new friendships and embarked on a new adventure posing as a nude model to subsidize her income.  She has turned her life around, while leaving her wretched past and all it’s trauma behind.  But, Brynne quickly learns that she can never escape the demons.  Nightmares and scars can hide, but can never be forgotten.  And now, that her fears have come back to haunt her, some nefarious characters threaten her life.  In order to secure her well being, Brynne’s dad takes every measure to uphold her safety.

Enter Ethan Blackstone. The charismatic sophisticated Special Forces turned Securities Specialist hero chosen to protect Brynne.  SauvĂ© and debonair, he is the epitome of charm, wealthy beyond imagination and is devilishly handsome.  To top all that off… Ethan oozes raw sex appeal and is one hell of a dominating, filthy mouth alpha.  His problem? He becomes infatuated with Brynne by merely seeing her naked photograph on display in an art gallery.  Ethan infatuation spurs the need to possess Brynne – the need to claim her in all ways, not just for her protection. In true alpha form, Ethan goes all “caveman” in his obsession of Brynne. 

Falling hard and fast for each other, this couple sizzles up some of the steamiest and passionate escapades I have ever read.  To notch up the heat factor… Ethan’s dirty pillow talk made me swoon.   Their sexual chemistry is definitely off the charts.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading the beginning of Ethan and Brynne’s sexcapades.  “Naked”, although a fast and dirty read, had it all… romance, mystery, suspense and drama.  It ends in a cliffy, leaving me wanting more. I want more of their backgrounds, their secrets and more of Ethan’s powerful and cocky character.  I could not get enough of his dominating and passionate ways.  I’m looking forward to the next installment and digging deeper into their relationship.
