Eyes Wide Open by Raine Miller ~ Review
The third part in The Blackstone Affair series: A love on the brink of being destroyed. The fight of a lifetime to keep it alive.
Big surprises are on the horizon for Ethan and Brynne as they struggle to adjust to what life has thrown at them. Demons from the past are threatening to destroy the passionate bond they’ve forged despite their vow that nothing will ever keep them apart. A truly devastating loss coupled with the promise of a new hope opens their eyes to what is most important, but is it possible for the lovers to move on from the painful histories that continue to haunt them? A stalker is still lurking in the shadows, plotting evil amidst the distraction of the 2012 Olympic games in London. Brynne and Ethan are on the cusp of losing everything as the stakes rise. Will they yield to circumstances beyond their control or will they give every ounce of fight they have left to save each other and win the ultimate prize of a life together?
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.
This is the third book in The Blackstone Affair with the sexy Ethan Blackstone, and oh how I love Mr. Blackstone and his dirty, filthy, kinky, bedroom mouth! Now, I'm not going to lie, it took me a little while to get into this one but once I did, I was sucked right back into the story. 4 stars
In EWO we get a mix of point of views, Ethan's and Brynne's and I loved this! I love male POV's! We get to see Ethan and Brynne's relationship develop and grow, and get to meet Ethan's family and I absolutely adored his niece Zara and Ethan's relationship with her. We also get to see the stalker situation play out, and although I thought there was a little too much predictability to this, it still made the story interesting. I also loved learning more about Ethan's past but there is definitely more to that story. I don't want to give too much of the story away, just know Ethan is still the smoking, hot alpha male we love.
Overall, this was a great story, definitely not my favorite in the series but still anything that has Ethan in it, I'm smitten. I definitely don't feel like the story is complete and from what I hear we haven’t heard the last from these two yet......be on the look out for the next installment in this series!
