Holy Moly! WOW!
If people didn’t already know, I’ll start by saying that I’m a huge Mandi Beck fan, her filthy fighter and his princess are one of my top book couples. So as you can imagine I was beyond excited when Mandi started writing again. The more and more I heard about Stoned made me even more excited for it, but I also wasn’t sure what to expect, Mandi told everyone that it was different and not her usual style and maybe people wouldn’t like it. Well, I’m people. And I fucking loved it! Stoned is, without a doubt, Mandi’s best writing to date! This is her craft, this is her path, the beautiful, breathtaking words she weaves into this story is her future.
My emotions are a total riot right now, jumping around like rock lovers in a mosh pit. I feel drained, emotionally ripped apart, heart broken and gutted. But I also feel high, super in love, my heart beating the super strong rhythm of Stone & Birdie. I am IN AWE of this story, their story, every breathtaking, heart pounding word of it.
Stone & Willow are a match made in heaven, the chemistry and connection between them are written so spectacularly that it itches at you, pulls on every nerve and explodes every emotion. The slow burning love that sizzles in the background of this book is consuming, electrifying. Stone is just pure bliss, a raw, intense, bliss that clawed at my heart and soul and damn, he’s buried deep. His dirty mouth and insane good looks will be hard for anyone to deny.
Willow is like a breath of fresh air. Never once did I not feel for her. Granted I wanted to shake a her a few times, but I got her, I understood. She’s a perfect match for Stone!
What Mandi has done with Stoned is flawless. It’s words are intricately woven into the most spectacular story. It’s a stunning guitar riff of notes, beats and rhythm. It’s a deep emotive song, played out with incredible dedication and precision. It’s a book to be proud of and I bow down to Mandi for her ability to compose such magic.
And now, well now, I’m done. Totally Stoned. Wrecked beyond words. Dancing happily in Stone’s Purple rain.
5 stunning, sensational stars!!!
A rock star with no rhythm is a man with no soul.” – Stone Lockhart
As the lead singer of one of the hottest bands to hit the rock scene, fucks are free, drugs come easy, and music is life.
For as long as Stone can remember, Willow has been his music – the notes that weave his soul together.
Until he threw her away.
All he has left is a handful of pills and a few lines of powder to make him forget her.
And he tries, over and over.
Clean and ready to make things right, he’s faced with the fact that Willow’s moved on. She’s not the same girl he cast aside. Willow’s a woman sure about her purpose in life. Sure about who she’s meant to love.
Stone may be lost without his rhythm, but Willow has found so much more.
