Brynne Bennett has left scandal in her past and is living the good life. An American grad student at the University of London and part-time photographic model, she’s getting back on track with lots of hard work and focus on a career in art conservation. When successful and charismatic London businessman Ethan Blackstone buys her nude portrait, he wants to possess more than just her image. He wants Brynne in his bed, serving him in every way possible. He has no trouble voicing his desires, and he isn’t taking “no” for an answer.
At first, his dominant nature captivates her, but it isn’t clear if the force of his powerful desire will ultimately awaken or dispel the demons Brynne is carrying inside. There are secrets on both sides of this relationship—huge ones. Can Ethan erase the scars of Brynne’s past so that she can reveal her true self to him? Or will the shadows cast by Ethan’s own mysterious former life destroy their chance at happiness?

Book provided by publisher for honest review
I am a huge fan of this genre of books and honestly I have put off reading these because it has had mixed reviews from my blogger friends. Some say it is the ultimate hotness and others have said it is so-so.  I would have to say that I am right down the middle of the line.  The storyline itself is interesting. It has a lot of the same aspects you expect to see in this genre- boy with problems meets girl with more problems and they have a dramatic/problematic relationship.  

Brynne is a fairly likeable character.  She’s had a rough go of things based on her past, but has found a way to move on with her life. Relationships have been non-existent for her, but she is excelling in school and making strides in her career. Plus, she has a great set of friends. What more could a girl want really?  How about a hot as sin, sexy as hell body guard that wants to devour you every single chance he gets?  Yeah, one of those please! 

Enter Ethan Blackstone. I was worried at first that this was another one of those Fifty Shades want-to-be moments, but Ethan is his own flavor of sexy messed-up-ness. He has a dominant personality and doesn’t take no for an answer especially when it comes to Brynne. You will absolutely swoon over this man and all his over-protective glory.

Naked gets three and a half stars.
