Megan Hart confronts the issues of race, religion and sexuality in a way that is unusual in romantic fiction but the book is never preachy. I believe that this title is part of a sequence that begins with, Tempted but it can be enjoyed independently.

I liked Olivia, and I was definitely rooting for her. Her background and self-identity was interesting, and I could easily understand why she questioned so much of her identity. And I loved how being a photographer was integral to her characterization - that she framed and cropped memories as if through a lens.
For me the tension was that I felt I knew Alex a whole lot better than Olivia did, and the more I came to like Olivia, the more I expected a train wreck. This sense of foreboding and dread was with me right to the very last page - and possibly even beyond. I love Alex Kennedy - I want to take him home and... well, never mind. But I don't trust him.
Ms. Hart stays consistently in one point of view throughout the Alex Kennedy series (a different POV for each book), which is somewhat off-genre for romance writing - and I would be comfortable saying she's not so much a romance writer as a writer of character-driven fiction. You won't always find a happy ending, but Hart has an amazing ability to introduce us to characters who feel like real people living real lives, who get thrown into emotional hurricanes, and then find their way to a resolution they can live with.
I couldn't stop reading. That's a 5, folks.
Both wanted someone unlike others in their past. Each had been hurting for the real thing. Their love
came with a twist.
Our couple each wanted patience, understanding,no lies, no cheating, and no sharing. Each had to learn
to believe in the other. These two unlikely characters gave each other this and so much more. They
shared much in the beginning and all in the end.
Both loved each other enough to know your past and DNA doesn't determine who you are. They both
had enough faith to believe that roads untraveled alone they could together. Leaving them to discover
each other... I freaking love this book. It touches on so much from sexual orientation to differnt
types of religion. Adoption, what makes a family. This book touched my heart. I'll be reading it
I am a new Megan Hart fan. I came upon Tempted while perusing a bookstore during the holidays. It sat on my bedside table for many months before I read it and then I read it again and again. Then, I had to read Everything Changes. Its the same with Naked. Megan Hart has a way of making her characters vulnerable and real. Not everyone's lives are so cut and dried, perfect. Life can get messy. I know this is fiction, however, the situation is told with such honesty and clarity that it should be on the big screen! Bravo!
Once engaged to a man (Patrick), that preferred men, she had been hurt deeply. It was her love that allowed her to remain friends after the big breakup, and eventually exposed her to this beautiful man who wanted her over another man.
Alex and Olive have some things to learn about their relationship, while letting their past go. It gets a little rocky as they get to know each other. He is there for her when it came to her family, but will he be okay with her being there for him when she goes to meet them? Family YES, the loves of his life (Jamie and Anne), well that part I can not share. You will have to read this tangle of a story that is filled with steamy passion.
I really love the way Megan Hart brings in the name of the book as a lesson for all. Naked is not only without clothes, it is also when you expose who you really are to the one person you trust completely. The ending of the story was not only heart wrenching, but also fulfilling.
