My Rating: 4/5 stars
The Blackstone Affair series had me hooked on Ethan and Brynne since page 1 of the very first book. I fell in love with Brynne because she was broken and tormented but she was also strong and stubborn. She gave as good as she got and her character was so well developed I just loved her right away. Ethan..wow! Ethan is the dominant, alpha male who takes what he wants. He’s possessive of what’s his and man oh man! He had me blushing like..a lot.
“My kinky, foul-mouthed, romantic gentleman lover. The perfect combination, in my opinion.”–Brynne.EYES WIDE OPEN begins where ALL IN left off. Ethan and Brynne had just arrived at Ethan’s sister’s house after a tormenting evening dealing with bomb threats, weird text messages, etc. I really love how each of the books picks up right where the other leaves off. Like, I didn’t stop reading for one minute. The twists and turns this novel takes had me wanting more with each page I turned. I wanted to know who was after Brynne. I wanted to why, whoever he/she was wanted her so bad. It was a mystery that I absolutely had to get to the bottom of and Raine Miller did an excellent job of capturing my attention and refusing to let go until I had read every single page. The intensity and steaminess between Brynne and Ethan certainly did NOT disappoint! I love, love, love the power between these two characters. It left me feeling wanton each time they *ahem* came together. It was amazing.
“It is enough, Ethan.” I whispered. His fingers stilled in my hair. “It is enough for me. You are enough.” –BrynneEYES WIDE OPEN also shocked the bejesus out of me! I couldn’t believe Ms. Miller took us where she did but it fit the storyline so perfectly and I am so happy to see Brynne and Ethan make it through some of the most shockingly awesome news of their lives.
“I know I’m a bit rough around the edges and I know I’ve trampled my way into your life, but I do love you with all my heart. Never doubt that. You’re my girl, and I want you and I need you with me forever.” –Ethan
“Brynne was my greatest gift. She was the first person to really see inside me. Only her eyes seemed even capable of doing it. Only my Brynne’s eyes.” –Ethan. Have I mentioned how much I loved the Blackstone Affair series? I did. Oh, well I’ll say it again…I LOVE THIS SERIES. It is beautiful, sexy, mysterious, and above all a damn good read.
