Bound by need. Entwined in secrets… Krystina I had dreams and aspirations, none of which included a man by my side. Been there, done that. Then I forgot my cellphone, and all of my carefully laid plans went to hell. He wasn't supposed to be there when I fell. I wasn't supposed to get lost in a sea of sapphire blue when he helped me up. And he wasn't supposed to be Alexander Stone, the New York billionaire real estate tycoon. I saw the dark promises in his eyes when he looked at me. But the shadows of my past haunted me, making me afraid to explore the possibilities I could never before have imagined. Alexander I was used to getting what I wanted. I understood the value of finesse and patience to achieve the desired result. But a chance run-in with Krystina Cole quickly turned my world upside down. She was strong, determined, devastatingly beautiful—and stubborn as hell. Her quick wit and firecracker attitude was the complete opposite of what I wanted in a woman. But I still wanted to claim her. Tame her. Make her mine. And I always get what I want. Heart of Stone is the first book in Krystina & Alexander's epic love story. It's the beginning of the steamy and unforgettable series by USA Today Bestselling Author Dakota Willink.

  • AMAZING start to a 3 book series

    By Anna_M_82
    I have just found Dakota and I am SO GLAD that I did!! This book was absolutely amazing from start to finish. Her characters are full of layers that are slowly being discovered. Her story is beautifully written and I can’t wait to see what comes next for Alexander and Krystina! When Alexander is literally run into by Krystina he is instantly drawn to her like he’s never been drawn to a woman before. He’s a billionaire, Dominant, controlling, and secretive man. What he wants is Krystina, but she won’t be giving in easily. She’s new to the world of BDSM and Alexander wants to train her to be his new submissive. She’s feisty and independent with a troubled past that makes it hard for her to submit. She agrees to try and they begin an incredibly steamy arrangement. What happens when feelings start to change the arrangement? Will Krystina be comfortable in his world? Will Alexander change his own rules enough to start an actual relationship? I am enjoying the start of their story and I am looking forward to finding out what will happen between these two amazing characters next! I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and I am voluntarily leaving a review.
  • Love this book!!

    By crissa02
    This story is amazing! It shows us Alexander and Krystina. They are fighting with their past and how this affects them in their relationships or the lack of them. During the story they fight hard to trust each other because of their past and secrets! They show us Krystina’s struggle to trust again and Alexander’s fears! I can’t wait to read Stepping Stone!!

  • Cheap 50 Shades Knockoff

    By 5SOS<3
    This is basically a cheap knockoff of 50 Shades of Grey. It wasn’t written well… The characters don’t really develop, everything is very expected, and it’s kind of boring.
  • Must Read!!!
