I am sort of becoming addicted to these type of stories however it is quite difficult to find the really good ones out of the fifty shades explosion that is happening right now. I'm afraid to say that this was one of the weak ones for me in fact I couldn't force myself to finish it.

The first thing which annoyed me is if you are going to set a book in another country do your research first. Naked is set on London and Ethan is English. In England we do not Advil we have Nurofen and we do not refer to our mobile phones as a cell phone we call them mobiles.

Secondly and this is the major reason why I didn't finish the book is that there was no character development. Because the book is so short we never get a chance to learn about the characters. Brynne and Ethan meet, jump into bed virtually straight away and then declare love for each other. I found it just ridiculous.

This book has got lots of great reviews and 5 stars however it was definitely not for me and I am going to give it 1 star.

I cannot understand the 5 star reviews for this book. The storyline is weak and sketchy at best, the female protagonist has no depth and as for Mr Blackstone, he is bordering on stalker-creepy.

I adore a good love story and enjoy the eroticism that the genre now seems to have tons of. However this book left me bored and I was actually skipping pages to get to the end. There was just no cohesion in the story, AT ALL.

I live in London and the references were actually quite annoying. No Londoner uses the word "period". We say "end-of" or even "full-stop". This showed the author's lack of knowledge regarding all things Londonish.

Compared to some other books in this genre, it is ridiculously overpriced too. Please don't waste your money or your time. Full Stop!

So this is another Fifty Shades/Bared to You style first novel in a trilogy but it's a really good one. The style is very engaging, the characters bounce vividly to life right from the get go and it's set in London in the run up to the 2012 Olympics - what's not to love?

I think, as you're reading the novel, it pays to remember the prologue - it's very short and easy to forget when you're caught up in the story but it's VERY IMPORTANT!!

Brynne is our heroine - an American grad student studying in London supplementing her income with some tasteful nude modelling (the cover art is the picture at the centre of the novel). Ethan Blackstone, British ex-special forces and now head honcho of an elite security firm, buys her portrait and decides that he has to know Brynne and they start to date. They both have scars and a traumatic past - neither is revealed in this instalment and there is a WICKED cliffhanger. Cliffhangers are all the rage these days - I suspect it's some kind of evil revenge being plotted by nefarious authors for some unknown slight by the readers! All I can say is, if you leave your readers hanging like that, you had better be writing real fast!!

This is highly enjoyable and I read it really quickly. I was interested right from page one and never bored of it or skimmed at any point. Ethan - how I loved Ethan. I feel fairly safe saying that I think Raine Miller was using David Gandy as Ethan in her mind. It's absolutely him, right down to the description of his nose!! Ethan's a wonderful hero - he's thoughtful, caring, protective and incredibly sexy and of course David Gandy style gorgeous too.

Now that I have read it I can kick myself by being drawn in again by the 5 star reviews this book received.

You know when you read a recipe and think "this looks good" and you proceed to try it and then you "tweak" bits here and there instead of sticking to the original recipe? You put it in the oven and it comes out looking nothing like the original picture and it just doesn't taste right? Well that's the way I would describe Naked. Too much "tweaking" of THAT book again (yep 50 SOFG and some Crossfire thrown in). It was hollow, shallow and mechanical.

I absolutely love romance mixed in with flawed characters and steamy sex scenes as much as you all do. This book did not deliver this nor did it deserve 5 stars rating. It is not a good read, very little plot and the reader gets to to know very little about the 2 characters. I did not like them or this author's writing style.

Ethan Black character had so much potential but Raine Millers writing made him sound like a cheesy growler and I questioned whether a dominant male would actually say the things he did. The only thing she got right was the readers' picture of Ethan Black - yep you could visualize David Gandy.

We got the same old story - Brynne only had distant friend, a roommate that she spoke to infrequently and a gay friend.

Within a week Ethan and Brynne have moved in together with him professing "your mine" and of course the past - yes they both have dark shadowy pasts and they are deeply flawed etc etc etc

So people, if you still want to scratch your dominant male itch then read this however, if you want something new and exciting then give this book a miss because like me it will just infuriate you.
