Naked: A realistic modern love story.
by Megan Hart

No strings. No regrets. And no going back.

I didn’t think he wanted me. And I wasn’t about to get involved with him, not after what I’d heard. Alex Kennedy was tall, dark and unbearably hot, but I’ve been burned before. Maybe it was stupid of me to offer but he needed a place to crash and I needed to pay the rent, but now he’s my tenant…with benefits. And now that we’ve crossed that line, I can’t seem to find my way back.

But I can’t give my heart to a man who’s so…unconventional. His last sexual relationship was with a married couple. It’s enough that my ex-fiancé preferred men, I won’t take that chance again no matter how much my body thrives on Alex’s touch. I can’t risk it, but I can’t resist it, either.

Alex can be very convincing when he wants something.

And he wants me.
My review guidelines can be found HERE.

  • Perfect.
  • Love the Naked typography and the way it mimics the model's hair.

  • M/M
  • Voyurism
  • M/F

  • A favored author for me, Ms. Hart always sucks me deep into her stories with her super-erotic tone and characters I can relate to.

  • I find my self thinking about the story in between readings.

  • Addresses quite a few hot button topics: race, sexuality, adoption... and most from a unique view point.

  • Ms. Hart always manages to get the man at the woman's feet, and I love it.

  • All the characters have rich backstories that you only catch glimpses of, just like real life. It sucks you in, and lures you deeper into the story.

  • Patrick starts out endearing but gradually gets more and more selfish. Will his motives be purified in the end?

  • Olivia has a startling relationship with Pippa. And even though her emotions are not the ones I would expect, I think I can understand them.

  • Alex is the bad boy, the sexy unattainable bad boy. He can be an asshole, he can be cold, he can be sexy, he can be endearing, he can be callous. But do all those things add up to someone you can love?

  • Sweeter than what I usually expect from Ms. Hart. This story starts out kinky only to delve into the intricacies of modern relationships.
