A Stone in the Sea ~

He wanted nothing at all…

Until he found she had everything to give…

Sunder lead singer and guitarist Sebastian Stone has everything—fans, fame, and fortune. He also has a heart full of bitterness and a reputation for a short-fused temper. But an outward reputation rarely reveals the true man inside. Facing assault charges after trying to protect his younger brother, Sebastian is sent to Savannah, Georgia to lie low until the dust settles in L.A.

Shea Bentley is beautiful, kind, and hiding from the very lifestyle Sebastian has always embraced.

When the mysterious, tattooed stranger begins hanging out at the bar where she works, Shea is quick to recognize he is nothing but trouble, but she’s helpless to the way her body lights up every time his intense gray eyes tangle with hers.

They both soon find themselves drowning in a sea of desire and passion that won’t let them up for air.

Sebastian knows firsthand secrets never die, and he’s not the only one who’s hiding them.

Loving someone always comes with a price. But will it be Shea’s past that costs them everything?

◄◄ My Thoughts ►►

Romantic, sexy, emotional, tender, and real.  My god!  I loved this so much.  I’m kicking myself for waiting so long to read this book.  The imagery, language, and emotions jump of the page in this sweet and sexy Rocker romance.  Baz is my new love!

Here’s the breakdown:  Sebastian (Baz) is a rocker on hiatus, attempting to lay low after a legal drama in Los Angeles.  When he meets Shea, it’s like lightning in a bottle.  He’s caught off guard and the feeling is mutual.  Although Shea recognizes he’s nothing but trouble, she can’t deny her feelings.

What I loved:  The writing and performance.  Typically, I write a separate audiobook review, but the performance and writing worked so well in tandem with this audiobook.  Both narrators were superb and absolutely increased my enjoyment of this book.  I love words, and AL Jackson weaves them together so brilliantly.  The writing and imagery are rhythmic and romantic.

The main characters are real, raw, and well written.  There’s a bit of insta-lust going on, but I loved it.  I thoroughly enjoyed witnessing Sebastian and fall in love.  The chemistry between these two is SMOKING HOT!  The secondary characters are also intriguing.  I absolutely adore cute kids in books and Callie interacting with Baz is heart-melting.

The storyline and plot are both stars.  The setup for future releases is handled superbly.  I already want to know the guy’s stories.  I’m particularly looking forward to Lyric, simply because his name is aces!  Yep, I love little details like that.

“Where there’s beauty; there’s also pain”

 I rate it5 “Do You See Me” Stars
