My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book from this author and I found it to be easily read, relatable, and emotional. The backstory for each character was thoughtful. The characters faced trials that felt authentic. I felt that the story moved at a good pace and the characters were well developed. Overall an enjoyable book. I look forward to seeing how the series unfolds.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first book I’ve read by this author and I went into HEART OF STONE blind so wasn’t sure what to expect.

This is the first book in a new series. It’s a contemporary romance with open door (at times extremely descriptive) sex, family, friends and a feisty Granny who doesn’t care that a burger and fries are not good for high cholesterol and blood pressure (seriously – she is FIESTY). It’s a story of self-discovery and trusting that not everyone is who you assume them to be.

This story is told in first person direct to the reader at times. It’s enjoyable to read stories this way; it’s like talking to a friend.

There is a lot of personality to this story. There are several layers and threads all moving together at the same time yet sometimes going in different directions.

I enjoyed reading this story and will definitely go into the author’s catalogue to see what else has been written. I look forward to reading more of this series in the future.

Heart of Stone ~ Book 1: Emery & Jackson (Heart of Stone Book 1 (Emery&Jackson))
By: Chiquita Dennie
5 out of 5 stars

The story Heart of Stone ~ Book 1: Emery & Jackson (Heart of Stone Book 1 (Emery&Jackson)) by Chiquita Dennie is a book that I enjoyed reading. It drew me in from the beginning and I was hooked. I loved reading about the characters of Emery Stone and Jackson Pierce. Emery is a woman who feels the need to be in control. Her heart has been broken by a cheating ex-boyfriend. Relationships and commitment are no longer for her. Jackson is attracted to Emery from the start. She makes him feel different than others have. Now all he has to do is win over her heart and stop pushing him away. What does the future hold for Jackson and Emery? Will they find happiness or will obstacles come between them? Read this book to find out. I could feel deep emotions that both Jackson and Emery have. They are characters that I grew to care about and I found myself rooting for them to find happiness. There are steamy moments that will have you reaching for a cold glass of water. There are also several secondary characters that are wonderful to read about. I enjoyed the bonds that many of them and Emery have. This is a wonderful romance story that you don’t want to miss out on. I would recommend reading it.

Heart of Stone: Book #1: Emery & Jackson is the first book in the Heart of Stone Series by Chiquita Dennie. Ms. Dennie is a ‘new-to-me’ author, so I was looking forward to reading her story and seeing what it was like. It is a contemporary romance that had drama, funny moments, chemistry, and passion.
Emery caught her (ex) boyfriend in bed with her best friend. Double betrayal! She’s very hurt. But she also wants to put it all behind her, as she has a ‘secret’ that she needs to deal with. She’s definitely not interested in relationships- no-strings hook-ups will suit her just fine. But, will a persuasive, sexy, wealthy, alpha-type male be able to change her stone cold opinion, get her to let down her defences, and to take a chance on love again? You really need to read this book to discover all the sexy details for yourself.
Good character development, interesting characters with quirky personalities. I loved Granny! Jackson is alpha-male swooniness!! Emery is all woman, and is perfect for Jackson. Minor issue- some of the sex scenes were a little awkward for me, the descriptive words seemed a little old fashioned, or out of place. (eg: …”her juices bury(?) my c**k as we slowly rock back and forth….”). Maybe it’s just me?
Looking forward to seeing what’s in store for Jordan & Damon in Book #2.

Thank you, Ms. Dennie!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is my first book by this author, I enjoyed it from beginning to end. It is a well written story that pulled me in right from the beginning. The characters are connectable and true to life, they made me feel as if I was part of the story. Emery has been hurt in the past and has built up walls that she refuses to tear down. Jackson has finally met someone that he can’t be without but will he be able to get to her heart? I didn’t regret picking up this book, I highly recommend it.

Determined to keep love at bay, she’s resigned herself to a life of no strings attached, but just as she settles on her new loveless path, her heart is put to the test – again.

Jackson Pierce is all for a good time with a gorgeous woman, but Emery isn’t like other women. For the first time in a long time, he’s found someone he can’t stop thinking about and can’t wait to get to know better. The only problem is she’s built walls around her heart and no amount of promises or long, lust-filled nights will convince her to let him get closer.

As Emery and Jackson try to find a balance between what they want and what they need, they find themselves up against people from their past and forced to face the truth, no matter what the cost.

Is their relationship strong enough to survive the obstacles life places in front of them?

Standalone novel in the Heart of Stone series between 3 best friends searching for love, happiness and healing. HEA, Steamy Romance.
