Spotlight and giveaway: Eyes Wide Open by Raine Miller


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.

4.5 Star review

“Th-thank you for coming to ff-find me,” she chattered, her lips looking more blue than anything. She was chilled and shivering, so I took off my shirt and put it on over hers, hoping the extra layer would warm her a little. She was compliant, allowing me to take charge, and that was a massive relief. Taking care of her was something I could do. I didn’t need much, just the assurance she wanted my help. Wanted me. “I’ll always find you.”

Struggling to adjust to what life keeps throwing at them, Brynne and Ethan can't seem to catch a break. Demons from their past are rising and putting a damper on the bond they have formed together. With a stalker out there waiting for the perfect opportunity to attack, Ethan is on edge and more protective than ever over Brynne.

He lifted his lips away and looked over me with glassy blue eyes. “I love you so much it scares me sometimes. No... it scares me most of the time.” He shook his head idly.

Ethan has finally found his light. The one person who has saved him from his dark, haunting past. The one person he loves more than anything in the world, Brynne. He will do anything and everything to protect her; even giving his own life. 

“When I couldn’t find was the worst, Brynne. I can’t go through that again. My heart can’t take it.”

Brynne also has a dark past that she struggles to move forward from.  With the help of her therapist, she has finally come to terms with her true feelings for Ethan. She knows she cannot live without him. She needs him just as much as he needs her.

“I wanted you then, just like I want you now, like I’ll always want you,”

Ethan is busier than ever with the Olympic Games being hosted in London. More mysterious packages arrive clearly letting Ethan know Brynne is in danger. When they are hit with a shocking surprise and a devastating loss, their lives and love for each other are forever changed.

“They are looking at you, but my eyes have really only been opened since you came into my world. You gave me everything. You made me really want to see what was around me, for the first time in my adult life. You made me want you. You made me want...a life. You are my greatest gift of all, Ethan James Blackstone.”

In this third installment, Raine Miller definitely doesn’t disappoint. The sex is downright steamy and hot! *fans self-off* It was heart breaking, shocking and eye opening. Together they were able to work through some of their demons from their pasts. Brynne has grown up so much and it is wonderful to see. Things take time but it was so comforting to be able to see her work through her fears and overcome them; to see the light click on for her is beautiful.

Ethan has changed for the better because of Brynne. He has come back to life and he is even able to open up a bit as well. It just melted my heart to see how the two of them complement each other and how much they truly need and help each other out.

Raine Miller has stripped us Naked, made us go All In and in her latest installment, definitely has our Eyes Wide Open.
