Overall, the story was well written, a little dark at times but it all flowed nicely. It was unique and a different type of read for me. The characters are complex and relatable in ways. I enjoyed entering into their world and look forward to find out what happens.
Review by Raychel
This book baited me from the start with the mystery but the relationship between Ellie and Alex hooked me.
This story focuses on Ellie and Alex and gives us a glimpse into who they are as individuals and as a couple. The only problem is, Ellie is not who she appears to be, or so she thinks. Yes, she is keeping a very serious secret from Alex, but I truly believe that Ellie is more herself with Alex. She becomes a woman who can give and receive love and even though she shouldn't she gives her heart to Alex. Alex was once the playboy, with a different woman in his bed sometimes two or more times in a day, but he left that life behind and he is now a good guy when he meets Ellie it's as though he's been hit by lighting. He can't get enough of her and before long he has given her his heart even though he knows there is something she is keeping from him.
The end of this book with Alex just broke me! I can honestly tell you that the last line he speaks will be forever etched on my soul. I just want to climb into that book and wrap myself around him and make everything okay in his life.
I know there is more coming and for that I am damn glad because I need more! I want it now, I need to see where the story leads.
Stalemate has all of the things that make a book unforgettable, mystery, intrigue, passion, heart and soul!
If I had to sum up Stalemate, it was Revenge (the TV show) meets a romance novel. If you have watched Revenge, then you totally know what I am talking about.
"Her need for revenge- to finally allow her wounds to heal- was what made her see past Alex's looks and charms."
~ Rose Sawyer, Stalemate
In Stalemate we meet Ellie Collins & Alex King. Ellie is determined to revenge her past. In order to do this she needs information from Alex's family. She plans on having a "pretend" relationship with Alex in order to gain access to his family. Very quickly Ellie's "pretend" relationship becomes very real....
We get to read Elli & Alex's story unfold while trying to figure out how Ellie's revenge will play out.
I have to throw this out there.... the one and only reason that Stalemate received 4 stars vs 5 stars is because Stalemate ends with a CLIFFHANGER!!! That is not written in the summary nor is it listed as a series on GoodReads or Amazon. It kind of ticked me off. I am a reader who usually waits for all of the books in a series to come out, and then I dive in. To not know about the cliffhanger rubbed me the wrong way. I did reach out to Rose and she did let me know that the second book is a work in progress but there is no definitive release date yet. Rose, PLEASE- PLEASE- PLEASE release the second book soon! I need more Alex King!!!
If you couldn't tell, I love Mr Alexander King. He is one of my favorite book boyfriends. He is now in my top 10 favs.
Take a chance on a new writer and read Stalemate. You will not be disappointed, I promise.
Thank you Rose for allowing me to read and review Stalemate. I can't wait to see Ellie & Alex's ending. Hopefully is a HEA.... They sure deserve it.

As the monster continues to evade her and taunt her, her professional and personal lives blur as Ellie finds herself liking Alex too much. She risks more than her life with this plan but heart as well.
This was the start of Ellie's game plan. Whilst the majority of this focussed on Ellie and Alex's developing relationship, it was needed to be able to understand the impact of her past on her, the toll it is taking on her and what she is giving to get the monster who destroyed her life. I am definitely looking forward to seeing how the rest of this series unfolds.
