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.

**Warning: This book contains mature subject matter and is not suitable for all readers. Adults only please.

Oh Ethan! What girl doesn't want a man who is absolutely crazy about her, and will go to hell and back just to protect her? I'd love my own Ethan Blackstone. With this book comes some pretty heavy surprises, some heartwarming and some heartbreaking. There's more danger and MUCH more at stake. 

I love reading Raine's books because I think she does a great job balancing the story and the sex. Yep, there's some GREAT sex, but Raine always gives us great sex. The best part is that it doesn't rule the story. Ethan and Brynne have had one hell of a love story over this 3 book series, and Eyes Wide Open is that great climax of any love story where the bad just gets worse, and you as a reader clench your fists and want to scream "Noooooooo! Don't do that!" and "WTF dude?" 

And there's great news, while I was very happy with where Eyes Wide Open took Brynne and Ethan and I had a very satisfying feeling at the conclusion.... wait for it.... that's right... 
there's going to be a Blackstone Affair #4!
When I realized this I did a little happy dance and went to drool over pictures of Ethan "a.k.a. David Gandy". 
Picture borrowed from Ethan Blackstone facebook page.
 See, doesn't he make the PERFECT Ethan! He even has those big pretty blue eyes. So, if you haven't yet read Eyes Wide Open get on it! You'll find the links below. And if by some miracle you haven't read Naked (book 1) or All In (book 2), you can buy those by clicking on the book covers below. ENJOY!
