4 STARS!!!



Ethan Blackstone has problems. He’s broken the trust of the woman he loves and she’s left him because of it. Ethan isn’t giving up though–he’s determined to get his girl back. Their passion together was explosive, but their secrets are even darker and more frightening. With political threats directed at Brynne, Ethan has no choice but to fight for her, to win her love, and to protect her from the very dangers that could take her away from him forever. He’s willing to risk everything to have Brynne and to keep her safe. He’ll go all in…


Christine’s Review

I LOVE that this book was from Ethan’s POV and I have to say that I thought it was even better than the first!  I find myself liking the books with the male perspective lately because I love learning how they think!

All In begins where Naked left off.  Ethan is devastated that Brynne has left him – he is literally nothing without her.  He can’t imagine her not in his life, without her touch, and drives himself into all kinds of crazy.  Eventually he wins her back (did we have any doubt?) and he is now even more obsessed with her – in keeping her with him in his life and in her safety.  I love a man who doesn’t give up and goes relentlessly for what he wants!

We find out Brynne’s secret and it devastates me!  It is truly heartbreaking and Raine writes it so well that you can feel that pain too.

What really made this book for me was Ethan’s POV – I loved hearing his thoughts about how much he loves his American Girl and how much he needed her.  The chemistry between them is as hot as ever and Raine sure knows how to make it sizzle…I love when a guy knows how to talk dirty!  What I liked even more was that it is not just about sex but about sharing things between each other, opening up and actually having a relationship.  This one was definitely more emotional for me and I appreciated that we learned more about their past so that we had a better understanding of who they are now.

I can’t wait for the next installment of this series!

Congratulations to Raine Miller and the Blackstone Affair, who have found a new home at Atria Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster.  We wish you much success and look forward to reading Eyes Wide Open!


About the Author

Image of Raine Miller

A New York Times bestselling author who 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. Ever! Writing books pretty much fills her days now and she’s always busy. Raine has a prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. She loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books. You can connect with her on Facebook or visit her blog at to find out what she’s working on now.
