Author: Mia Sheridan
Publication Date: September 23, 2013
Genre: New Adult/Contemporary Romance
Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him…
Carson Stinger was a man who didn’t play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn’t care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her…
When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn’t possible. And least not yet…
Author’s Note: THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first two books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.
“Life is wild.”
Yes it is, dear readers, yes it is. I have a little secret: I started reading Stinger without even reading the book description. Not one blurb, not one review. I had a very long and stressful week when I looked at my reading calendar and saw Stinger up on deck. So I jumped right in.
I was hooked from the first page. Mia Sheridan has written a finely developed, emotionally charged and sexylicious book that I devoured very quickly. Grace and Stinger literally run right into each other in Vegas while both are attending very different conferences: she, a law conference, he, a porn convention. Yes, he is an adult film star. Grace is a straight-laced law student, hell-bent on following a certain career and life path and she absolutely, positively will not be pushed away from following her life plan!
So meeting a porn star doesn’t exactly fit in with her well-made plans.
I could fill this review with breathtaking quotes from Stinger but I would love it if you would give this story a chance and read it with fresh eyes. The author has created a gorgeous, sexy but very smart and sensitive hero in Stinger, and a beautiful, smart and kind heroine in Grace. Neither is perfect, yet neither one is afraid to admit when they have made a mistake. There are also lots of essential supporting characters here, some living, some gone, who populate this book and make it come alive.
The characters also undergo tremendous emotional growth in Stinger, an essential development which is very often missing in a lot of books. For the storyline, the amazing sexy times, and the fabulous characters, I am giving Stinger five stars!
