Book Review: Eyes Wide Open by Raine Miller

Eyes Wide Open  (The Blackstone Affair, #3)

(Book 3, The Blacktone Affair)
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

4.5 Stars

"... my eyes have really only been opened since you came into my world."

Holy hotness!!! "Eyes Wide Open" is a sizzling hot book!! hot hot hot. Literally from beginning to end. I totally understand though.. if I were Brynne.. I'd have the toughest time keeping me hands off Ethan too!! He's just so sexy and romantic!!!!! He's definitely in my top list of swoon worthy hotties!!!

“Eyes on me, baby.” He commanded on a harsh breath. “You know I have to have your eyes when I take you” 

"Are you real?" He whispered, brushing up my face with the back of his fingers in a cherishing caress. "Because I'll want you forever."

This books starts right off where "All In" ends and let me tell ya'.. Brynne and Ethan's relationship does not get any easier. Right from the get go they face one HUGE surprise and then?? more drama follows! I swear they do NOT have a boring relationship! 

“Are you ready?”
I nodded and whispered, “Yes.”
“And nothing changes us.”
“Nothing changes that we love each other.”

Both Brynne and Ethan learn to fully accept each other and comprehend what they mean to each other.  Their intensity and passion will leave you breathless. Even though their relationship gets challenged in a lot of ways, how they manage to 'stick it out', is simply amazing!

“Brynne was my heaven. I’d seek out my heaven endlessly.”

"We're right, my beauty. We're so right together."

Overall, this book was very well written and both the plot and characters develop flawlessly.  In this book we get both POVs which I really enjoyed, we get the 'whole picture'.. something I always say is a PLUS!!! though, keep an eye out.. there are POV changes mid-chapter, which isn't really that confusing but it might throw you off a little bit if you aren't paying attention. 

Ohmigosh.. that ending was just beautiful!!! Perfect for Brynne and Ethan!! 
This book ends in a WONDERFUL place!!! I am soo looking forward to the 4th book!! 
I'll never have enough of Ethan Blackstone!!

"Ethan had given me back my life.”

About The Blackstone Affair #4:

"What’s on the horizon? Well, I’ll tell you. I’m hard at work on a 4th Blackstone Affair book. No title yet, but the book will be more of a stand-alone story and take Ethan and Brynne beyond the happily ever after at the end of Eyes Wide Open. This final installment of The Blackstone Affair, is scheduled for an ebook release at the end of 2013. I promise to keep everyone updated on this blog and on my Raine Miller Romance on Facebook page."

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.
