WOW! Just….simply put….WOW! There are not enough adequate words to describe how completely my mind was blown reading Hard As Stone! Sarah O’Rourke ratchets things up a notch in book 2 of this series…and by things I mean EVERYTHING, the suspense, the drama, the laughter, the tears and the deeply sexual and highly erotic relationship between the next McKinnon Sister and her deliciously hunky hero!!!! Harmony McKinnon is our heroine in this book and I adore her. She has not had it easy but she is holding strong and living life while raising her daughter, the product of an abusive relationship during her rebellious youth. She is the epitome of responsibility and maturity now, especially for the sake of her daughter, and the guilt she feels about her past and the effect it had on the lives of her sisters and her parents. Enter Jake, our yummy and drool-worthy hero, who comes into the picture under less than honest circumstances but soon discovers that his reasons for being in Paradise mean nothing in the face of what he is feeling for Harmony and her daughter. In them he has found love and a chance at a family and even vengeance pales in comparison to what he desperately wants from them. Their relationship, and the feelings they invoke in one another….goodness gracious! It is sheer beauty! It is like watching a gorgeous sunset…so pale and soft to start and then it explodes in all these bright and wondrous colors….it simply takes your breath away. That is how I describe the relationship between Jake and Harmony. I loved every second of the journey between them. I cheered for them when they found their way, and I also fought with them when Harmony found out Jake’s real reason for being in Paradise and it looked like hope of a future for them may be lost (yep, I was wanting to get in some knee to the nuts shots here myself). And Harmony’s daughter, Heaven? She was adorable! I loved how the author created a relationship between Jake and Heaven that was completely separate from the relationship between Harmony and Jake. We get to see this family in action even more than in book one and the things they have been through will blow your mind, most especially the youngest sibling, Honor. It has forged a very strong bond between them and we get to see how that bond is tested and holds true time and again while reading this book. There is a very evil villain at work here, probably one of the worst I have ever read and plenty of surprises that keep you sitting on the edge of your seat from one word to the next. Hard As Stone is the epitome of everything I want in my Contemporary Erotic Romantic Suspense books. It has a very engaging characters, an easy to understand but enjoyable plot that keeps you guessing and entertained at all times, highly charged and erotic sex scenes, heart-tugging emotion, gut-clenching laughter, and even allows you to shed some tears. Very few books can move me the way this book did and I can happily say that the duo of Sarah O’Rourke is becoming a favorite author of mine. I can’t wait to see what the next book in this series will bring!
What Didn’t Work For Me:
Once again, a flawless masterpiece. The entire book worked!
Would I Recommend This Book:
Yes! Most especially to my reading friends who love romantic suspense with erotic sex thrown in!
Final Star Rating:
Harmony McKinnon is the oldest of the sisters and the only one that has been previously married and has a young daughter. Harmony has never forgiven herself for not listening to her parents when she met a boy when she was 16 and they tried telling her he was no good. She defied them and went on to marry him when she turned 18 which estranged her from her parents. It wasnt long before she realized she'd made a huge mistake but her pride kept her from leaving her abusive marriage and going home. Then tragedy struck and took both her parents from her before she got the chance to tell them she was sorry and they were right. After one of the worst beatings of her life the town sheriff manages to rush a divorce through and run the ex out of town. Since then Harmony has only lived for her daughter and working at the family restaurant and starting up a new business as a wedding planner. She has vowed to never get involved with a man again.
Jacob Stone is a DEA agent who is in town on vacation yet also undercover to bring down the man he holds responsible for the death of his sister. As Harmony's ex works for the drug dealer and is rumored will be showing up in town to create a new location to run their drugs from Florida, Jacob lies in wait. What he didnt count on was falling for Harmony and her daughter knowing he was keeping a big secret from them that could endanger their lives.
Things get a lot more intense in this one as the bad guys are not only tied to Harmony but also to her other sister Honor <slight spoiler> and the circumstances of her gang rape many years ago. My heart broke for Honor through out this book and the state she's left in by the end. It has a great resolution for Harmony and Jacob but poor Honor's story doesn't conclude until the last book in the series.
Harmony's ex husband has gotten himself involved with the drug lord that Jake is after. He abused Harmony and she hasn't seen him since he was run out of town.
Once Jake sees more of who Harmony is he knows he wants her in his life. But when his secrets come out he will have a fight on his hands to keep her.
