About this deal

If I had one wish this Christmas, it would be to give Krystina what she desperately wanted more than anything—a baby. Sure, as her secrets are revealed I understood her anger and armored heart, but the revelation came too late for me to connect with her. She's setting up displays and that's where she meets Alexander when she makes a complete idiot of herself. Her daily routines usually include rocking Lululemon yoga pants, putting on lipstick, and obsessing over Excel spreadsheets.

I don't know why, maybe because I'm tired of reading the same again and again, but I skipped the sex scenes, and for me, it was an okay book. In realistic position I was also excited how close this is to my Home town and yes I heard of Clifton Park. In between playing chauffeur to two very busy teenagers and working her job during the day, Dakota began to put words on paper. She knew better than that – at least until she met Alexander Stone, the New York billionaire real estate tycoon.Throughout the book, we are teased with Alex’s secretive and mysterious background which seems to underpin who he is today. The chemistry is like hot lava but both are stubborn and have a past that they don’t wanna open about. She's got that good angel, bad angel on her shoulders and the bad angel is doing the happy dance at this God in front of her. By 2014, she gave up the security of a steady paycheck and began working on her first novel full-time.

From International Bestselling Author Dakota Willink comes the fourth book in The Stone Series , a Christmas novel that sets the stage for the final installment of Alexander and Krystina’s epic love story. But, just like with Anastasia in Fifty Shades of Grey, Krystina is not a true sub…and the similarities to FSoG don’t end there. She was the angel who guided me to salvation, lighting up all the places inside me that had been dark for most of my life. Looking at this cover you would not think you were about to read a billionaire dom/sub type of book. Not just because i couldn't get the other two series out of my head, but also because it just didn't work for me.

I had to protect the woman I loved above all else—even if it meant keeping her locked in a gilded cage. Krystina Cole’s wish to put in practice her marketing diploma lands her a job with Stone Enterprise, not before knowing the rich businessman. She enjoys spending time with her super-supportive husband and two witty teenagers, her two Labrador Retrievers, and her spoiled rotten cat.

Alex, however, opens up quickly to the idea of a relationship and works hard to change who he is, to become a man who Krystina could open up to. At 430 pages and a cliffhanger ending, Heart of Stone takes too long to tell what could have been a compelling, heart stopping romance.I'm not a huge fan of BDSM themed books but this is subtly explored and despite a visit to a sex club, the author didn't over emphasise the experience and, despite Krys’s innocence, the scene did not make me feel uncomfortable.

I like sweet heroines who are soft in character (not weak doormats) and heroes who want to protect and provide for the heroine.Instead, Krystina became too shrewish for my tastes, leaving me wondering why Alex continued to pursue her. However, both Krystina and Alexander are clinging to the secrets in their past, and neither of them are willing to compromise. The romance and sexual content is the focus of this novel and I think that she has also done a superb job of bringing us into the relationship and making us FEEL! The backstory is there, each having their own drama, or their own issues to face or fears to conquer.
