The Stone Brothers #1-3 by Samantha Christy ~ Review (@SamLoves2Write)

The Stone Brothers #1-3
Samantha Christy is a new to me author, and seeing how there were a lot of great reviews I decided it was time to give her work a try. All the books in the series can be read as standalones, and none of them are the same. It was good to read about each different brother!

She likes sleeping with men.
Sometimes it's not a choice.

Life hasn't been easy for Charlie. Her mother was a monster. And when Charlie left home, there wasn't always a warm bed, food, or a hot shower.

She figured out how to get by on her looks.

When her mother dies and she comes home to put that part of her life behind her, she finds the diary.
It fills her with rage.

She's out for revenge.

But along the way she meets him.
Ethan DOES play by the rules. And at the top of his list is "Don't get involved with clients."

Will he break his rules for Charlie?

I must admit, this book took me by surprise. I really enjoyed getting to know Charlie and learning about the demons in her past. I could see why she struggled so badly, and was seeking revenge for what happened in the past.

Ethan was a strong character, and I could see that he was infactuated with Charlie right from when they first met. She was quite forward and he liked that feistiness in her. The more times they crossed paths, the stronger their connection became and Ethan was determined to get Charlies Secrets.

This was quite a good read and touched on some dark issues. I enjoyed the way that the author brought these characters together and how they found extra strength with one another. She also introduced us to a great cast of secondary characters, some of which have already had their stories told, and some stories are coming!

We were childhood friends. Me and the boy who would grow up to become Hollywood's hottest star.

When I was six - I fell for him at the bus stop.

When I was fifteen - he moved away, taking my heart with him.

When I was twenty-four - he came back for me even though I didn't want him.

The nine years we spent apart, I tried like hell to fill the void.

Apparently, so did he.
Instead of being addicted to me, he became addicted to women, drugs, and money.

So when he showed up on my doorstep offering me everything I'd ever dreamed of - him, I couldn't help but think of the age old idiom: Be careful what you wish for.

Stone Promises was a delightful romance about childhood friends Chad and Mallory. They were quite inseparable when they were younger until Chad was recruited for his acting talent. Years later they cross paths by chance and that connection that neither of them acted on as teenagers, was still there.

It was sweet to see these two back together again and rekindling the friendship they once had. They both still had feelings for one another, and Mallory in particular, was reluctant to act on them. I liked seeing friendships form with the Mitchell sisters too, as well as seeing the Stone boys being excited to see Mallory again.

This particular read didn't blow me away, but I enjoyed it regardless. It was interesting to see the difficulties Chad had, and what Mallory had to do to fit together with him in his world. The author did a nice job at delivering this romance, and I am looking forward to reading the next book.

I'm her doctor.
She's my patient.
My only patient.

She's alone and in trouble.
From the moment I see her, I know she's special.

As a resident, I've spent years living and breathing hospital life.
Then she comes into my ER, and my need to help her is all consuming.

Despite the consequences...
Even knowing I could lose everything I've worked for...
I can't stay away.

How far will I go to protect her?

I must admit Stone Vows was probably my favourite read out of this trilogy. I liked seeing the struggles of a doctor who was torn between crossing the line at work, and his feelings for someone special.

Kyle was very focused on his job of becoming a doctor until one patient got under his skin. He started developing feelings for her and didn't really see a family in the near future, but it wasn't long before some of his priorities shifted.

I loved that Kyle was such a kind and sweet guy that would do any small thing to help someone in need. It wasn't always smooth sailing and it was interesting to see how he handled the tough times. There was a difficult thread woven into the story which gave it some intensity and I had hope that they would be able to find happiness together.

My passion for writing started long before my first novel was published. Graduating from the University of Nebraska with a degree in Criminal Justice, I've held the title of Computer Systems Analyst for The Wisconsin Supreme Court and several major universities around the United States.

Raised mainly in Indianapolis, I hold the Midwest and its homegrown values dear to my heart. Upon the birth of my third child, I decided to devote myself full-time to raising my family. While it took a long time to get from Computer Analyst to Author, writing has remained my utmost passion and being a stay-at-home-mom facilitated my ability to follow that dream.

When I am not writing, I keep busy traveling. I am obsessed with cruising and it is my goal to sail to every Caribbean port of call.

I have found my home in St. Augustine, Florida where I live with my amazing husband and my four incredible children.
