Eyes Wide Open (The Blackstone Affair #3)
This is the third book in The Blackstone Affair with hunky Ethan Blackstone!
What I loved about this book:
We get a mix of point of views! In the first book Naked, it is Brynne’s. In the second All In, we get Ethan’s. But in EWO we get both. I really liked this. Knowing what each other was thinking in that same period of time. One thing that got me was the switching took place, well everywhere. Its not chapter by chapter switch. Sometimes its within scenes, but I didn’t find it distracting while reading.
I loved learning more about Ethan’s past. I have been wanting to know more about it since I read Naked so long ago and we get to find out more about it!
Ethan: God if only he were real. He’s strong, Alpha, dominating-----yet loving, caring and even playful and fun in this book. We get to see a different side to him!!!!!! I loved this!!!!!!!!!
Hotness that is the bedroom! God…those two can tear up the sheets!!!! LOVED IT!!!
This all being said, there was a bit of predictability with this book. I knew where it was going before it took me there. The twist saw it. How they worked through it was wonderful though.
Overall, great story. And from what I hear we haven’t heard the last of Brynne and Ethan. Keep your Eyes Wide Open for the next installment.

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.
