Heart of Stone: Emery & Jackson (Heart of Stone Series Book 1) by Chiquita Dennie is a four star novel. I loved how this book was a great, steamy, quick read. Emery’s story was so relatable. Lots of women have been cheated on by a man. Some women forgive, others choose to move on. Emery chose to move on and good for her. Whatever choice is made, is good, as long as that is what you want. When Emery meets Jackson, she knows there will be action between them but just doesn’t get how much action there will be and what that means for her. Little did she know her whole world would be turned upside down!
Heart of Stone – Book 1: Emery & Jackson was a good 4 star read.
This is a contemporary romance that pulled me right in.
Emery had a not so great past of getting hurt so she was guarded. She also has a secret that she hopes will stay hidden, but will it?
Jackson has a playboy rep and when he meets Emery he is pulled in by her, he really liked her and was great at trying to get through her walls.
Things take an interesting twist when both of their pasts make an appearance. Can they have a HEA?
We get some very steamy moments along with some unexpected twist and turns. I really liked Emery and Jackson, you could feel their chemistry coming off the pages. All of the secondary characters were great, I especially loved Grandma, she had me LOL so many times. We also got a glimpse into some other couples and I look forward to seeing more from them in the series. This was a great start to the series and I can’t wait for the next book in the series. 1-click and get started today.
Heart of Stone Book 1: Emery & Jackson by Chiquita Dennie is the first book in the Heart of Stone series. Emery has been betrayed by her ex and her best friend. Jackson can’t get Emery off his mind. She has built really high walls around herself. Can Jackson break them down?
This is a well-written story with a happily ever after ending. I enjoyed the story and a bit of humor and build up to the characters. The characters are interesting and I felt for Emery and her struggles. Jackson and the other characters were good also. I look forward to where this series goes and the stories of other characters.

Heart of Stone – Emery & Jackson was a really nice contemporary romance story and one that I really enjoyed. This is also the first book that I have read by this author and I really enjoyed their writing style, the book was easy to read and the characters were easy to relate to.
I really liked Emery and Jackson as characters, they were both really nice and I really felt for Emery. I could see how much Jackson liked her but she had been so hurt in the past that I could tell it was going to take a lot for her to let him in. There were some good twists to the story and some surprising turns that I didn’t see coming – I was however rooting for Emery and Jackson the whole way through the story. Alongside these two were some great supporting secondary characters who really did add something extra to the story!
I am definitely looking forward to reading the next book in this series!
Heart of Stone – Book 1: Emery & Jackson by Chiquita Dennie
Chiquita Dennie is a new to me author and I was pleasantly surprised by the first book of her series. The storyline was intricate with a few main stories playing out all while following a core group of friends. I found that at times I had a harder time trying to follow along as the storyline jumps from couple to couple, however, the stories intrigued me which kept me connected and reading.
I look forward to reading more from this series in the future!
Heart Of Stone (Emery & Jackson Book 1) by Chiquita Dennie
Heart Of Stone was a steamy romance following Emery and Jackson as their attraction develops into a romance. Emery recently ended a relationship with a man she has known since being a kid. She was devastated by finding him cheating on her and locks her heart down, afraid to love again. Jackson is determined to break through to her and treat her right. Secrets seem to tear the two apart and struggles begin. I loved both the main characters and the supporting characters. I loved that the author tied in what was happening with her best friends. It seemed to give the story more depth. I look forward to reading more in this series.
Heart of Stone ~ Book 1: Emery & Jackson (Heart of Stone Book 1 (Emery&Jackson)) is a contemporary romance story that is full of drama and passion, secrets and lies and lots of chemistry and humour that had me laughing out loud at times. The story is centered around Emery and Jackson but it also gives us a look at their friends and the women that drive them to madness. I am sure their stories will be very very interesting. The characters are definitely interesting and some are crazy and quirky, and I loved Granny and her straightforwardness with the first inappropriate thing that popped out of her mouth. As much as I enjoyed this story, the female characters frustrated me, I can understand why the men in their lives had had enough. At the same time the men came across as too full on in their alphaness (is that even a word?) and just expected the women to jump to their demands. I did like that the story was told in multiple POV’s as you have more insight into the characters and what makes them tick.
I wonder what Angela and Jordans stories will be like.

Heart of Stone: Book 1 – Emery and Jackson by Chiquita Denny is the first book in the heart of stone series. This is a stand-alone novel as each book in the series follows a different couple.
As a whole this book has great development throughout. The story was well thought through and had a good flow to it. I’m the characters were easy to connect with too. They were relatable and it was easy to create an image of them. I thought they had a great chemistry between them that worked really well.
This was a strong start to this series and I can wait to read about the other couples coming up.

I definitely related to this story. You try to be strong so that no one sees the broken parts of you. You push yourself so hard that you don’t notice your fall. This story was so real. The author made you feel like this happened to someone. That at one point in their life they ran from love. That they thought they were better off alone. The characters learned from each other. The Grandmother was my favorite she kept it real through the whole story and never changed.
