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.

Krystina and Alexander

I enjoyed this series very much. Not sure why others said it was like Fifty Shades because other than the BDSM aspects of their love story, Alex and Krys’s story was unique on its own.

I always love hearing Lacy Laurel and she did an awesome job as Krystina Cole! She brought her to life in this book! I love a strong willed woman who knows her own mind and isn’t afraid to get and work for what is important to her!

I believe it was a first time listening to Jeffrey Kafer but felt he does a great job as Alexander.

Dakota Willink is a great author, there is a lot that happens in this series. Stuff that was surprising so definitely not just BDSM with details of life that develops each character!

You can’t go wrong getting this series all package in one audiobook. You should definitely use a credit on this series!

Sexy Billionaire

A three part story of a sexy billionaire who always gets what he wants and a stubborn sassy talking and financially struggling heroine who doesn’t follow orders well. This is a BDSM story.

almost a copy of fsog

As this book began I noticed the similarities to fsog so I found myself writing a list so I could compare more thoroughly. Everything that happened in fsog happened in this series of books with only a few small differences. I loved fsog but this was a poor replica. I listened via audible and while I enjoyed the male narrator the female had an irritating voice that made it hard to keep listening. I had to force myself to finish.

Great audio okay book...

Eerily similar to other books.
I had a hard time not comparing this book to some others. The book is well written and the characters are solid. I listened to the audiobook which was great. Had I not listened to the audio I would have rated this book differently.

Amazing audio I loved the performances in this series.

A fantastic series

A great listen to a complete series . First listen to the author Dakota series. This is a great series that you get all 3 books . It’s a spicy listen that will have you hooked till the end . Dakota wrote a story that has lots lots of levels and romance in the story . It’s set with a Dom and Sub characters with BDSM scenes.
The characters are strong and comfortable.
Hero is Alexander, Alex. Heroine is Krys.

Alex is the Dom and Krys is the sub . You need to hear this series. I highly recommend this series.
Book 2

Book 2 in the series . Dakota again writes a gripping story. It continues where book 1 left off . This also is a spicy attention gripping story .
Hero is Alexander , Alex . Heroine is Krys
In this book 2 Krys can’t take anymore. She leaves Alex . Alex the Dom is lost without his sub Krys. He wonders how to get her back. Does Krys regret leaving Alex . Does Alex make up for his attitude, does Krys go back to him .

Jeffrey Kafter and Lacey Laurel performance was great. They both did the characters great . Voices were strong and smooth

This is the way to read this series

This series just flows from one book to the next. Having it as a boxed set made the three stories become one amazing, steamy story that I could not stop listening to. Alexander is a swoon worthy CEO and Krystina is with a traumatic past. I loved everything about this story. Both Alexander and Krystina need to deal with the past in order to have a future. This is what brings in the suspense and drama, that had me holding my breath at times. Although Alexander is an alpha male, he has a softer side that made me fall for him. I can understand why Krystina succumbed to his charms. This series has it all, BDSM, steam, suspense, drama and most of all love. I found a little bit of Fifty Shades of Grey, a little bit of the Crossfire series and even a little hint of Black Obsidian in this story. I loved each of those series and the hints of them made this series at the top of my favorite list.

Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer are a great narrating team for this story. Their performance added to the experience of the story and I was easily lost in it. They brought the characters to life. I easily got lost in the world of Alexander and Krystina through their narration. This was a wonderful listen.

Great as a series

If I had read the books individually, I would have been extremely annoyed with the abrupt endings to the first two books, however presented as a series I was able to continue the story right away. The individual books can not stand alone.

The first book starts almost the same as either the 50 Shades or Crossfire series (or maybe a little of both), but it developed into its own storyline in books two and three. l preferred subsequent books over the first one. I liked that the author incorporated music into the story. There was some confusion about the timeline at the beginning of the second book, but overall the series was good.

The narration was excellent. I would be interested in hearing more from Lacy Laurel and Jeffrey Kafer.

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!

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.

Amazing series!!!

This series is by far my favorite to come to audio!! I was beyond excited when this box set came out! Over 30 hours of my favorite characters? Yes Please!!!

I loved everything about this series from the characters, to the plot, to the twists I never saw coming. It was made all the better with the fabulous narration by Lacy and Jeffrey. Dakota, along with Lacy and Jeffrey, created a world that I never want to leave. I will be returning to this box set time and time again!

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.

This will suck you in

Loved this series and the complex yet thoroughly enjoyable read. This was written so well and had me wanting to know where this would take Krystina and Alexander and if they could make it through the challenges that lay ahead. Also let’s talk about chemistry these two have it in spades and you won’t regret picking this up. I also really loved the dual narration and can’t wait to read more from this author.

Amazingly HOT!

My first thoughts after finishing this book were "Wow, I can't believe it is over" listening to all 3 books at once made the story flow great. The beginning of the book during the chase was a tad slow, but once Alex & Chris got over the beginning bumps the story got way more interesting. The "hot scenes" in this book were ohh so sexy! I will definitely be reading more from this author!

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.
