Summary

When forbidden desire becomes something deeper, the past is exposed, and the betrayal is more than either expected. 

Krystina Cole was scarred from a traumatic past. She knew her capacity for love was limited and that only she alone could repair the pieces of her shattered heart. But that was before meeting Alexander Stone. Now he was everywhere she turned. In her mind. In her heart. And in her soul. He was her addiction.

Alexander had rules. Krystina's quick wit and firecracker attitude was the complete opposite of what he wanted in a woman. Being with someone like her was a risk. He had too many secrets. Surrendering the truth about his father’s murder would be devastating to him and to the empire he worked so hard to build. Yet, he couldn’t get Krystina out of his mind. 

Bound by their passion to be together, they fight to let go of the shadows that haunt them. As two shattered souls, wrapped in each other’s arms, trust becomes their ultimate bond. However, committing to each other was only the beginning. Caught up in their blazing desire, they unexpectedly find themselves facing the pain from a past that won’t set them free. When Alexander is blackmailed into revealing the secret he’s kept since childhood, it threatens everything Krystina and Alexander fought so hard to overcome. Including Alexander's very identity.

Follow the journey of Alexander Stone and Krystina Cole in The Stone Series, a heart-wrenching and seductively steamy three-book series.

This bundle includes Heart of Stone, Stepping Stone, and Set In Stone.

Stone

The narration was beyond excellent. Any time you can visualize the characters and scenes, you know that you're in for an enjoyable experience. I will say that Alex was my favorite character. I wanted to know everything about him. And Krystina annoyed me. At times, I tried to understand the reasons for her hang-ups, but she just grated on my nerves. However, I loved them as a couple, even though I was annoyed with Krystina. And, thinking about it, it was the things that bothered me about her that helped to make this an interesting audiobook. I did think some parts of the story were a bit cliché (Fifty Shades kept running through my mind), but nevertheless, the story is unique and it allowed me to escape for some hours.

Alexander and Krystina!

Alexander is intrigued by Krystina from their first meeting, but their painful pasts don’t allow anyone too close. She has trust issues and he has secrets but there is not denying the love and hot chemistry between them.

This is an emotional story of healing and love that is filled with drama, angst and heat. Alexander is an alpha protector who has met his match in the fiery personality of Krystina.

The narrators did a great job of bringing the story to life and have you invested in Alexander’s and Krystina’s happy ever after.

Omg brilliant

I loved all 3 of these books! I can't say much as I don't want to give anything away but if you wa t to listen to a CEO romance and/or a BDSM romance with a strong female character despite her past this is definitely one to listen to , the narrator's were perfect and really brought the story to life

Full Series Box Set

This was a long and entertaining listen. The Stone series stars Alexander Stone and Cristina Cole. I felt that the first book followed 50 Shades almost too much. There was different things added in to change it but a bit too similar. Between book 2 and 3 it changes into its own unique story and I loved it. So much mystery and suspense. So much steam. Yes there is lots of sex but that is what makes it so much better. Highly recommend

Blew Me Away!

I won't lie to you... I was turned off of BDSM because of a series that shall not be named... HOWEVER, this series has changed my mind on the genre. There was just something about Alexander Stone which made me feel like I could fall for someone like him. I also loved Krys... she took no bull and pushed back. She made him question things... and even better, each character was flawed. They all had a past and it just brought that much to the story. Add in the narration and this series goes from a 5-star to a 10-star! The writing was great and the narration of Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer were spot on. The personalities injected into each character was exactly what I imagined them to be. This is the first I've read/listened to from Dakota Willink and I thought it was great!

The Stones

This author was new to me. So the narrators brought the book to life for me. The challenges the couple faced had me on the edge of my seat. The couple learning about compromise. Finding healing from past hurts. Learning to trust each other. For people who love control and letting things happen on its own was a lesson they had to learn.

The Stone Series

Wow! To get all three of these books with just one credit is amazing, especially with all the depth and drama that just pulls you in. I initially thought this series would be like the Fifty Shades series, but not quite (and so much better I might add). I absolutely loved listening to these two battle their way through their pasts and move on to such a happy future. This is a must read for everyone.
Narration was amazing as well. Brought this series to a whole new life where you felt like you were right there the whole time

Utter rubbish

I have never had a book from audible before that I wish I had not picked, however, this is definitely utter rubbish. As well has the story being a copy of 50 shades of gray, the narrator is dreadful.

Angel & Devil !

I totally enjoyed this series a lot. This story is well written, with amazing characters, all of them, even the secondary characters were great, everyone adding something extra to the story. Not so much drama, enough angst, and really hot ;)

Christina was amazing, I loved that she's not weak, and never gives up easily, she fought for what she wanted and not just walked away when things weren't going well. She's stubborn, sassy, strong, determined, which make her a great character.

Alexander was also a great character, despite being tormented by things of his childhood, and that he wants to portrayed himself as cold or indiferent, he really cares about others, he is also protective and charming. There were some times, manyyy times that he made me feel frustrated and exasperated because of how he was behaving, he said that Christina was stubborn, he was even more.

The relationship between them both was really good, I like that despite the many differences, misunderstandings, and miscommunications they had, they were always able to talk it through and were together for the most part of the book and not just at the end.

Oh, and that demon/angel that was Christina conscience, was so good, I laughed everytime they came out, though I always cheered to the Devil lol, cause he knew better... ;)

As for the narrattion, it was perfect, both narrattors did an amazing job.
Jeffrey Kafer was perfect for Alexander, his pace and tone, and that deep voice of his was great.
Lacy Laurel was amazing for Christina, she was able to portrayed all her sassiness, emotions perfectly, and her male voice is truly fantastic, sexy, and made Alexander sound great.

Worth the listen 3 stories 1credit

I have listened to this audible for the Audiobook Obsession group and the Author Dakota Willink thank you. I listened to this in the box set which was nice not having to wait for each installment.
This series is reminiscent of both Fifty Shades of Grey and The Crossfire Series. All three men are powerful CEO’s and dominates, looking for submissive women if you are familiar with Anna or Eva you know they where not submissive and neither is Krystina. All three are strong woman, unlike Anna, but similar to Eva, Krystina was devastated by another man.
This series does have its own plot that starts as most attraction, that leads into seduction, it is Alexanders sketchy past which is the main focus and becomes bewildering to Krystina and in her naïveté takes it upon herself to get answers. Which lead to Drama, intrigue, a bumpy patch in the relationship, according to Krystina fantastic sex, and my favorite a HEA.
This was my first experience with this author, hope it’s not my last. The story moves at a fast pace, not boring, like most was anxious to find the mystery of the characters hidden secret and put it to rest.

Great Box Set!!

I had already listened to the three books in the Series and I loved them so much! This Box Set is a wonderful deal! The three books are great, in the style of Fifty Shade of Grey. The first book began the story of Alexander and Krystina, and ends with a cliffhanger. The second book gives us more about them, with a storyline suspenseful, sexy and steamy and romantic. The third book is a great conclusion of their story and I loved it! I really enjoyed my listening and I'm looking forward for more stories from this author. Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer did a great job with the narration! Their voice suit the story and they sounds well together. They both have a great voice, easy to understand. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

OMG yes!!

This is one of my favorite series! The characters are flawed, complex and perfect! The story is the perfect amount of Alpha CEO, Light BDSM, suspense, plot twists and Heat! It kept me captivated the whole way~

Narration was perfect. Lacy and Jeffrey were a great pair! They brought these characters to life in a way that few others could. I couldn't picture anyone else as these characters. Fantastic narration all around. They both put so much feeling into their performances which keeps you drawn in and connected the whole way.

This is a steal for 1 credit!

Heart of Stone - Bk 1
5 stars

Wow! This book sucked me in! This is definitely one of those series on "what to read next after fsog." Even though there are similarities to fsog, there is still new content to the story that makes it different. Krystina and Alexander are off the charts. I really liked the narrators for the audiobook. I can't wait to get to the next book and see how things start playing out.

Stepping Stone - Bk 2
5 stars

Another excellent installment. Krystina and Alexander are trying to figure out their relationship. I was surprised on how some of the events happened. I loved the suspense and action it had. Narrators were great as well.

Set in Stone - Bk 3
4.5 stars

This was a great conclusion to a great trilogy. I'm also glad it didn't go in the route/plot that I thought it might. I highly recommend this series.

A Perfect Gem

Heart Of Stone: The Stone Series Volume 1 is a erotica romance with a bdsm theme. Weathy real estate Tycoon Alexander Stone meets Krystina Cole a recent marketing grad with quick wit and a firecracker attitude that nothing will stop him from pursuing & claiming her as his. These two contrasting character's will test unknown waters in accommodating their very disparate lifestyles. This is the introduction to their romance. With loads of sexual exhibitions that fits a erotica romance. Secrets of their past that they aren't ready to share is preventing them from becoming a fully committed relationship.

Told in dual pov which is my favourite and accentuates the narrative. Alexander Stone is a very domineering alfa male character & narrator Jeffrey Kafer did well portraying a clear cut, overpowering, & formidable dom. Lacy's voice was sweet, and innocent which portrayed Krystina perfectly.

Stepping Stone: Takes this narrative up a notch to a whole new level. With secrets intricately revealed in tiers. More plot twists are unraveling throughout the tale. I loved the clips going back to Alexander's past to solve a mystery.

Set in Stone: Continues to drive the narrative with supporting character's own secrets tangled in the narrative. Plenty of intrigue, mystery, & suspense in a new world that could be ripped apart in a heartbeat. Closure ends with a HEA that perfectly ties all things together.

Narrators Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer bring to light a captivating narration that will leave you craving more of Alexander Stone and Krystina Cole.The pace & tone is smooth and easy flowing. A perfect duet was chosen to create a whole new world which you won't want to leave.

A must read!!

I received this Audible book in exchange for an honest review. This author is new to me so I hoped it was at least a good book since it was 31 hours long. OMG! It wasn't just good; it was fantastic! This was 31 hours of listening heaven. Kristina is a sassy and I'll speak my mind type of woman. Alexander is a dominant CEO business man. When they meet the attraction is off the charts magnetism. This is their love story and how Alexander's past could tear them apart. Well done Dakota Willink!

Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer are excellent narrators. They brought these characters to life with their smooth and sexy voices. I lost a lot of sleep because I did not want to stop listening to this book. This is definitely a book I will listen to again again.

Great series

The story has love romance angst and bdsm all rolled into one. The female character is very sassy and takes no crap. The make character is trying to dominate her. This is a bit of a roller coaster ride that leaves wonders how it is all going to work out. I definitely recommend this series. I also enjoyed the narration too.

But Now!

I absolutely loved this series! It has a rollercoaster of emotions to go through, and you don't have to wait for the next book because best of all this is a boxed set! Definitely worth the credit to buy. The narrator's were great, Lacy and Jeffrey really brought the characters to life. If you like a little BDSM in your books, but not over powering with it, you'll also fall in love with this series. I also really enjoyed how the series came to an end, it really wrapped up their story.
