Sweet ending to one of my favorite love stories

I fell madly in love with Ethan Blackstone and his filthy mouth in Naked (book 1), and continued to be blown away throughout the series. Ethan's and Brynne's whirlwind, action packed, erotic romance has been such a joy to follow.

I couldn't wait for the final installment, and although I definitely enjoyed this one, I found it was a tad anticlimactic as I awaited the arrival of Baby Blackstone. Where the previous books had suspense and major intensity, this story was sweeter, slower paced, and more settled. The saving grace as always, is Ethan--I love him, and love the man that breathed life into this dynamic character--Shane East! He is one of the best narrator's I've heard. He imparts so much passion into Ethan's character, I feel like I'm feeling whatever Ethan is going through in that moment. Overall, I highly recommend this series and will continue to purchase Raine Miller books.

Should have been an epilogue to Eyes Wide Open

First, I have to say that I am annoyed with Audible for not putting this book on the home page as a book that I would be interested in based on my past purchases, seeing as I have the other three books in my library. I just stumbled upon it by accident as I was browsing the website the other day.

With that out of the way, my reaction to this book was "meh". The author basically tied up loose ends from the other three books, but that could have been done with an epilogue at the end of Eyes Wide Open. There's really not much in the way of more story in this book. It just felt like an excuse to extend the series in an attempt to get more money out of consumers.

Normally I love Grace Grant and Shane East, but in this book, Grant seemed very tentative in her narration. She slowed down and seemed to leave too much time between sentences. That's my main criticism of her performance in this book, but other than that, she did a good job - but not as good as she usually does.

Shane East did a good job, on par with his past performances. I have to say, though, when he reads a sex scene, it can be a bit over the top. If I'm listening at home, it's okay, but if I'm listening in my car, I have to pull over! :) He really puts it all out there, so good for him!

Bottom line for me is that it was an okay book. If you really liked the first three books, you will probably want to get this one to find out a few things, but overall, it just felt like a way to get more money out of me.
