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.

Mixture between This man by Jodie Malpas and Fifty

For those who read THIS MAN by Jodie Malpas it will be easy to recognise the The bits in the story line
The male narrator voice don't suit the character. Too much of her own thoughts became a bit frustrated yet love her stubborn nature
But a good read . would've like more of a duel narration
I only continued reading to find out the end results of their love battle 🤗🤗

Great story, but.

I read the Stone trilogy some years ago. I stored the books in my keep collection. I looked forward to the Audible version. I was disappointed with the narration by Lacy Laural which at times sounded very robotic. Only occasionally her voice put some empathy into the narration. The narration of Stone's voice was consistent but oddly spoken.
This and only this is why I have given the low score.
I agree with others liking the stories to Crossfire and Fifty Shades.

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!

Never a Dull Moment in this One!

There's never a dull moment in this one. Alexander and Krystina's story is full of unexpected twists and turns!

Jeffery Kafer and Lacy Laurel did a good job narrating.

The Stone Series is a three-book box set BDSM, billionaire romance written in dual first-person POV, recorded in dual narration. It's a trilogy that ends with an HEA and deals with sensitive subjects some may find triggering.

I received this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Female Narrator Terrible

Jeffrey Kafer was great. However, Lacey Laurel was awful. Pronunciations were wrong; words were wrong (said a completely different word than what was written eg, "convercation", "conspicusly", and many more); intonations were wrong (emphases in the wrong places); the voices of the other characters were not great. I cringed everytime it was her turn to speak.

Jeffrey saved the book from being deleted.

It is a pity as I believe it would have been a great book but for the performance of the female narrator. I think we would have been better off with just the male narrator throughout.

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.

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!

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.

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.

Great box set

Having this series in a boxed set was perfect. Dakota Willink is an excellent author. She writes well with great storylines and characters. This is the third book/series I've read/listened to by her. I was completely invested in the lives of the characters. The twists and turns kept me on edge. Great suspense. The BDSM element surprised me. I really enjoyed the direction she took the story. At times I had tears, or my heart was racing, or I was frustrated and mad at the characters. Other times I was grinning ear to ear, laughing. Throughly enjoyed this read.

Jeffery Kafer and Lacy Laurel are excellent narrators. Their performances were wonderful, keeping the book rolling like a movie in my head.

The narrator ruined this read

I wanted to get into this series, but the female narrator was AWEFUL! Her voice and cadence was comparable to a Google maps voice on steroids. I couldn't even get past the 1st chapter. Not good.

I just cant...

I wanted to enjoy this but the narrators are HORRIBLE!
They are so annoying!
The female is so nasally when she does the guy voice.
The guy is as boring as dirt. I just cant!
The characters are immature and not realistic. I’m not gonna be able to finish this. Which sucks because the reviews looked promising.
