SET IN STONE Synopsis:

There is something all too vague about second chances. What happens when your utterly perfect first chance never really ends? What if it’s stolen?

Bull-nosed attorney Morganna Sterns knows what she wants. Self assured, powerful, and independent, she finds herself struggling to find balance between honoring what has been stolen, and deciding if her second chance is going to end just as tragically.

Steven Warner is a Navy SEAL with nothing to lose. His overt humor and charm paired with his lethal skill set make him a perfect catch–for the right type of woman. His world is littered with relationships, but only one stands the test of time. Competing with a ghost is hard. Especially when that ghost is a teammate: his brother at arms.

It’s not, “it is what it is.” It’s what you make it. What you, and only you decide it should be. Navy SEALs never make the same mistake twice.

Will Morganna?

Review:

Set In Stone is about second chances at true love and as such, it is not without heartache. Funny, knows-what-he-wants, man’s man, Navy SEAL Steven has no qualms letting fiery, yet reserved Morganna know exactly what he wants from her. The two have been best friends for years, and it’s painfully obvious both want more, but Morganna’s fears get the best of her. She, rightfully so, doesn’t want to risk a second round of the heartbreak she felt when her husband, Stone died.
Morganna hasn’t really been living life since her husband Stone died several years back. She’s focused on work, work, and more work. Despite that, she’s managed to stay close with all of Stone’s SEAL brothers. She’s a fierce character and definitely the lawyer I’d like working my case, but her refusal to give into her desires are a little annoying, especially when it seems like she has little regard to what her actions mean to Steven. He’s a wonderful hero to the story and someone that has been there for Morganna since they met and certainly since Stone’s death. He’s outgoing and funny, always making jokes that he sometimes uses as a shield, but he’s entertaining nonetheless.
The steamy scenes seemed a little lacking to me. The two characters are some of the most passionate characters I’ve come across, but the way the heated scenes were written was a little lackluster to me.
Otherwise is a solid read that I enjoyed and found myself rooting for the characters and enjoying their every conversation and banter – it was all excellent and realistic.

 

Excerpt:

*Due to sexual content and graphic language this book is intended for readers 18+*
With her rapt, I say, “Sex is primal. Its mouths, hands, sweat, and skin. It’s uncontrollable reactions. It’s tongues, asses, delicious wetness, unbearable connection…it’s absolute and irrefutable fire.” She wets her lips. Shaking my head I say, “You don’t plan sex. Not you. Definitely not me.” I let my hand fall away, stroking her neck before I pull away. She leans into my hand, craving connection.

Ignoring my advance, she says, “Why are you doing this now?” Her normally clear voice falters. “It’s not fair. I of all people know fair when I see it. You…” She waves her hand at my body and face and then perches it on her hip. “Are not fair. You’re not playing by the rules. You come at me with your sex appeal wafting like a Yankee candle and confuse me to no end. I don’t get confused, Steven. You are my friend. Friend.” Her accent punctuates every word she speaks.

I motion to her body, mirroring her. “I have no need to play by the rules anymore. I did for far too long. There is nothing confusing about what I’m proposing. I’m only wafting the vibes because it’s you.” I smile.

Morganna throws her hands up in the air, defeated. “Great. Now you’re proposing things. I need to get out of here. I need some air, I need to breathe. I’ll return a few phone calls.” I see her eyes darting for the exit.

I’m losing my grasp. “Only sex,” I growl.

“What?” Her head whips to face me, her black hair swinging around one shoulder.

“I get it, M. Stone. I get it. We’re similar and you’re trying to push me away because of it. It’s best to stick with the brand of crazy you’re accustomed to. If you weren’t so busy repelling that notion, you’d understand how perfect we’d be together. But if you can’t then please, at the very least, have insanely, amazing sex with me. Don’t have sex with that guy just because you planned to–because you think it will be different. I broke up with Chloe and Sasha as a peace offering…as a way to show you that I want to give us a legitimate try. As fucked up as that would sound to a stranger, I know you get it. You’ll be the only one. I swear. How long have you known me? You know I’m serious.” I thump my fist over my heart. “No one has to know about what we do except you and I and whatever surface we mutually decide we want to fuck on.”

 

Don’t miss CRAZY GOOD, the book that started it all…

About CRAZY GOOD:

Before there were bikers, or fighters, or even good old-fashioned jerks, there were Navy SEALs. They put the bad in badass because, well…it’s their job.

Navy SEAL Maverick Hart has everything. Women want him. Grown men idolize him. Little boys want to grow up and be like him. The job, the glory—it’s all his. Not because it’s handed to him…because he works hard for it. The second his sights lock on something, he owns it—or destroys it. Unfortunately he does both at the same time.

Windsor Forbes only takes calculated risks in her profession and in her personal life. After being left at the altar by the only person she’s ever loved, the very last thing she’s looking for is a relationship—especially the insane brand an arrogant Navy SEAL is offering. Hesitant, yet trusting to a fault, she gives in.

She knew she shouldn’t take the chance, especially a second time, but love is irrational and their love is perfect, infallible. Or so she thought…

The downfall to having everything is you have that much more to lose. A man like Maverick can’t have it all without something slipping out of grasp.

Crazy people perish for love.

Good people live for it.

Love doesn’t die. No matter how many bullets you put in it.
