Review by Brittany
All In is the second book in the Blackstone Affair. I know you’ve heard of it, we have all heard of it. Ethan Blackstone is one of the hottest fictional boyfriends out there. Raine Miller doesn’t disappoint with All In, which is told entirely in Ethan’s point of view.
In the previous book, Brynne left Ethan after discovering her father had hired him to be her security. Brynne is devastated; she believes that Ethan never really loved her. She believes that all he has said to her, done for her, was because her father hired him.
Ethan is crushed when Brynne leaves him. He can’t sleep, he can’t eat, but he can certainly smoke. He’s determined to get her back, and let’s face it, Ethan Blackstone always gets what he wants.
With Brynne back beside him in his bed, Ethan is ecstatic. He gets to learn more about her ugly past and what he faces when it comes to protecting her.
I give this book four stars. I loved the first one, Naked, but this one had something missing. It just couldn’t hold my attention in some spots, and I would find myself checking Facebook, instead of reading.
There also seemed to be a lot of sex. Don’t get me wrong, Raine Miller is a fantastic erotica author. All the scenes she wrote in there were scorching, but there was just a bit too much.
What I did enjoy, though, was Ethan. Ethan Blackstone is one hot, filthy-mouthed sex fiend. I loved reading in Ethan’s point of view. You can totally tell that he is hopelessly in love with Brynne and will do anything and everything to protect her.
There also didn’t seem to be much plot, seeing as how I finished the book last night, and can only recall two things that happened. Like I said, it was mostly sex. Which again, not a bad thing, but there’s a point where it can be too much.
I absolutely love Ethan and Brynne. They are an amazing couple; they’re so good for each other. They both have their dark pasts, which we see more of with Brynne, but Ethan is still hiding his. We will find out in the third novel, Eyes Wide Open.
Good job, Raine, for the second novel in the Blackstone Affair. I’ve already started the third one, and let me just say, the prologue gave me chills!!
About Raine Miller
Raine Miller 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. A part-time teacher and writer of sexy romance stories every other chance she gets pretty much fills her days. She has a handsome prince of a husband, and two brilliant sons to pull her back into the real world if the writing takes her too far away. Her sons know she likes to write stories, but gratefully have never asked to read any, thank God! Raine loves to hear from readers and to chat about the characters in her books. You can contact her at email@example.com or visit www.RaineMiller.com to find out what she's working on now.
