ARC BOOK REVIEW...Eyes Wide Open (The Blackstone Affair #3) by Raine Miller
Normally, I tend to recap the story but quite frankly there wasn't a whole lot to retell. The story was slow and morbid, the ending was entirely rushed, and the characters generally didn't have a whole lot of growth development.
"Eyes Wide Open" is the third AND NOT the last installment of Raine Miller's Blackstone Affair series. A lot is explained here like the story behind Ethan's scars and night terrors, the identity of Brynne's stalker, and even why Brynne wasn't feeling well at the end of Book two, "All In."
I will comment that for a good part of this novel, Ethan and Brynne are still figuring themselves and each other out and with time running to a close I kept thinking that they better get their sh*& together fast!!
I was also excitedly annoyed to see that there's going to be a FOURTH BOOK!!
"SAY WHAAATTT?!" Yep, Raine Miller likes to torture us readers with the wait till the end of the year to see the ACTUAL CONCLUSION of the series and I can't help but think why? Why is a fourth book necessary? Everything is already nicely tied together and our couple already has their happy ending. Why Raine Miller why?! *Waahhh!*
There better be some more wedding glimpses since Miller cut that very vaguely in "Eyes Wide Open" and some baby action!! Plus too, I would like to see what's going on with Gaby and Ivan!! They've officially peaked my interest.
