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?

This the third book of Brynne and Ethan. I think that this may be my most favorite book in the series

I haven't really goshed about Ethan in my past reviews. I guess because it took three books for me for his character to really endear himself to me. He has always been a likeable man from the very first but he really became more than just another character in the book here in this part of the series. However, I didn't like he continued to secretive about his past to Brynn although it was quite understandable considering the trauma that he went through.

The twist in the plot was actually something that I didn't expect. It was sad that a good character got sacrificed just to drive a point. Nevertheless, this turn in the story was a bit of a surprise. It feels good to be caught offguard every once in a while--especially when it feels like you have read the same things and some storylines can get a bit cliche.

Final verdict: 8/10. Good read.
