I liked “Stone Cold Beast” because I like shifter romances a lot and the author did a great job with the plot. Ethan and Daric had a hot intense passionate attraction from the first. The story line was very good and worth the read. Ethan is scarred and angry at life. An energetic and easy going Daric made for a roller coaster read. My question through the book was were they or weren't they? I kind of like those reads a lot it keeps the pacing and interest of the reader. This book is the second of the series and I can't wait for the next book to come out so I can read it. I like visiting friends through the series. This one I will gladly recommend for the good read that it is.
Ethan Stone, lion shifter, had lived many lives. He’d been a biker, musician, and an Umbran, or shadow hunter. Everything changed two years ago when a nightclub fire killed the members of his rock band and left him the only survivor. Now scarred and living the solitary life of a nomad, Ethan just wants to be left alone in his isolated world.
Daric McNamee, a cheetah shifter and also an Umbran, has been given an assignment. Ethan Stone. Find out what happened the night of the fire and recruit Stone back into the Umbran. Not an easy task considering Ethan is stubborn and wary. Almost immediately, both men feel a mate connection, but the last thing Daric wants is to be a submissive to a scarred, terminally angry lion shifter.
However, the attraction between them can’t be denied—though Ethan tries. When it comes time for them to part, will they admit they are mates? Can Daric convince Ethan he is more than a stone cold beast?
