I don't feel comfortable giving written reviews - I rate books for myself more than for others, a way to keep track of the books that I love to read, or sometimes not.
But I can't let this book go unreviewed - Megan Hart is amazing. She has an unbelievable ability to make you live in the shoes of her characters. You get totally sucked up in the minutia of their lives...she lets you breathe them..I don't know how else to explain this, but it is an ability that very few authors have, no matter how much you may love their books and the story - for me, this is the difference between a 4 star and a 5 star book.
In my opinion, "Naked" cannot be fairly appreciated if you haven't read "Tempted" or more importantly, "Everything Changes". Without having read Everything Changes, Alex feels flat/one dimensional, and he is anything but. Without knowing his back story, you can't understand his bisexuality or his insecurities or his need for love. I would think that unless you read the prior two books, that Naked could leave you feeling unsatisfied - or missing something, but not knowing quite what you're missing. For me, I finished this book feeling like I wanted to read all 3 books again - it filled in holes that I didn't know were there. I hope that Megan Hart will write more stories with the characters in this world.
I loved this book, even though I didn't love Olivia. I loved this book, even though it wasn't perfect. I loved this book, even though I was disappointed that Anne and Jamie's son had grey eyes. I love breathing in Megan Hart's worlds.
