Book Review: Stone Silence by Taylor Dean

 Stone Silence by Taylor Dean

Book Description:

Great big beautiful love.

Does it really exist?

Everyone tells me it does. They say, “Spencer Elliott, don’t worry, you’ll find it one day. You just have to find the right man and when you do, it will surprise the heck out of you.”

I’m still waiting for that heck of a surprise to hit. It has proven to be elusive thus far. I’m pretty sure the entire world is lying about love and the joke is on me.

I know I want a man in my heart and in my life. Unfortunately, most men immediately push my OFF button and I lose interest quickly.

Feeling pressure to prove I’m trying to find my soulmate, I finally give in and agree to a date. Huge mistake. Afterward I find myself abandoned in the middle of nowhere, in desperate need of help.

That’s when I meet Stony by chance.

He’s a silent and unsmiling man who intrigues me with his ability to keep going after life has knocked him down. Suddenly the abstract notion of love becomes tangible and within my reach. Once I experience it, I wonder how I ever lived without it.

That’s when I stay with Stony by choice.

But when Stony’s hidden past and present-day reality collide, his silence is broken. And the truth about his life nearly brings me to my knees. I can’t compete with ghosts from the past.

I refuse to fight for a man’s love. He either loves me or he doesn’t. It’s as simple and as complicated as that.

My only hope is . . . he does.


Review:

I was sucked into this book and didn’t want to put it down. I neglected so many things as I kept thinking, “Just one more chapter.”

I didn’t like the name Spencer for the leading lady. I’ve only ever heard it for a male name and it bugged me. But, I did like her character. Her quirks were funny, and I really liked how her meeting with Stony came about.

The story dragged a bit for me in the middle. That was really disappointing for a story I was so into. It took a long time to get to the conflict and then it was resolved quickly. But, I did enjoy the wrap up.

It had a sweet ending and I’m definitely curious about the next book in the series.

There are some passionate scenes (no sex). The language is clean.
