Eyes Wide Open is a passion-wrought story that shows us what pure love can achieve when tested and what the heart can accomplish despite danger and adversity.
"Eyes on me, baby," he commanded on a harsh breath. "You know I have to have your eyes when I take you!"
Ethan possessed a skill set that combined hot, bad-boy sex god with mannerly, romantic gentleman; something so rare and captivating I didn't have a chance of resisting the pull.
I wanted her. All the time. Want. Need. Desire. I was losing my mind and I'm pretty sure Brynne knew it.
"I think I became real when I met you."
"You're my girl, and I want you and I need you with me forever.
Lips, tongue and teeth working together to send a very specific message. You're mine, and I know you want to be mine.
Eyes Wide Open, picks up where we left off in All In. We see a mixture of POVs, that alternate back and forth, not only from chapter to chapter but also often within each scene. It made the book more rounded, I just totally loved it. Ethan.. swoon.. he is the total Alpha male, without being a douche about it. He tramples, but only when he has to. And poor Brynne's struggles continue, and Ethan reveals a bit more about his past. The couple come together to form a broken, yet healing beautiful couple. It's a hard transition for both, but when the ish hits the fan they realize that they can't live without each other.
I love.. love.. love this series and the characters in it. Miller's writing is amazing! It feels like every book has only been a few pages because I've finished the book before I know it. There is always something going on, and never-ever a dull moment. I love how we see some playful and happy sides to Ethan, and also his very loyal protective side (as always).
I also love how Brynne has grown throughout the books and even though she still has issues, she is slowly moving on, and toughing it out. Lastly, the Ethan and Brynne have a very healthy sexual appetite.. similar to rabbits. Though the scenes stay consistently hot and don't get boring. Initially, I didn't like the cover, but after reading the book it's highly appropriate.
Overall, this has been one of my favorite erotic series to date. If you haven't read The Blackstone Affair #1 where the heck have you been?!?! #2 you don't know what you're missing! I highly recommend!

Raine Miller has been reading romance novels since she picked up that first Barbara Cartland book at the tender age of thirteen. And it's a safe bet she'll never stop, because now she writes them too! Granted Raine's stories are edgy enough to turn Ms. Cartland in her grave, but to her way of thinking, a hot, sexy hero never goes out of fashion. A part-time teacher and writer of sexy romance stories every other chance she gets pretty much fills her days. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books.
