  3. 5 Sizzling, Pull At My Heartstrings Stars First and foremost, I d like to say that I was a huge fan of Heart of Stone However, I loved Stepping Stone even Stepping Stone, while not nearly as long as Heart of Stone, was a fast paced steamy and angsty romance that we all love Whatever comparisons that people were making to FSOG with Heart of Stone should end here.Readers, we finally get Alexander s story, but I have a feeling that we haven t gotten it all just yet because certain plot lines were [...]

  10. Krys and Alex are back in another installment to their relationship There was still intensity in their connection and uncertainty in the possibilities of a relationship future Stepping Stone picks up very close to where Heart of Stone ended We find that the both of them are having a hard time with this separation I was able to knock this audio out in a matter of hours I may have taken one break and that was it I wanted to know how things progressed for them and if there would be another stone to [...]


  11. I loved this book Simply amazing I feel like I ve been waiting forever for it to come out But let me tell you it was worth the wait When I saw that the author was offering up ARC s I jumped at it I read Heart of Stone first book in this series and loved it, but I found that it was similar to 50 Shades in some ways Stepping Stone was NOTHING like 50 at all It definitely held it s own Stepping Stone was fast paced, intriguing and sexy The story was unique and was very well written.I read the whole [...]


  12.

  13. This was a really good read I was surprised that it didn t go into the BDSM side , but it didn t take away from the book In fact, it means that those who are into reading that get to see the emotional and store shop front side of the BDSM relationships, whilst still offering a very good read for those who are not into reading that style of book, so something for everyone I love that the books are longer and really take the time to go into the gritty details of what is happening While this book [...]


  14. I was extremely privileged to be a Beta Reader for this amazing second book by Dakota Willink The first book in the series grabbed me and wouldn t let me go Few books keep me thinking about them the way that book one of the Stone Series did So when she asked if I could help I jumped at the chance With that being said, this is still my honest book review.We meet up with Krystina Cole after book one Krys is on he way back to the city from a job interview in Connecticut She is questioning everythin [...]


  15. I truly enjoyed the second book in the Stone series As I mentioned in my previous review, book one left you with a huge cliffhanger You definitely get the conclusion you were looking for I could not put this book down, just like the first one I loved how Alex slowly evolved himself to be what Krys needed in their relationship She truly is his diamond in the ruff I love how feisty Krys is, and happy that has not changed She is just as bull headed But with the heart ache she was getting from leavi [...]


  16. Arc offered for an Honest Review The story of Krystina and Alexander continues with Stepping Stone One of the characteristic of Krystina that I find interesting is her independent spirit and of course her need to questions things she feels needs questioning or clarified In this second book in the series, Krystina and Alexander relationship continues to evolve Both characters find a middle ground to make their relationship last and flourish I won t give details about the story, it would ruin the [...]


  17. Although I enjoyed the first book than this one, I still thought it was a welcome continuation of Alexander and Krystina s story I really enjoyed Alexander s character and his deep devotion to Krystina The only thing that was a let down for him was that he was a BDSM Dom and she wasn t a submissive so I felt that he was losing a part of himself Krystina on the other hand was very independent, sometimes being a little OTT, but they both had traumatic pasts so that had to be a determining factor [...]

  26. Would you consider the audio edition of Stepping Stone The Stone Series, Volume 2 to be better than the print version After listening to the first book I decided that I was going to prefer the audio edition of this series After listening to this second volume of the series that decision was set in stone no pun intended But if there ever came a time where I couldn t have my iPod with me then I would make the decision to purchase the books.What did you like best about this story What I liked best [...]

  28. No secrets Will the truth change anything Well, it s been two weeks since Krystina walked away from Alexander and it seems like he s finally ready to take action and won t let Krys hide any longer In the second book of the Stone series Krystina was just as annoying as before It got to the point where I just wanted to bang my head against the wall because of her thought process She did simmer down halfway through the book, or maybe I just got used to it Alexander certainly did I wasn t the least [...]
