Release Blitz and Review: Scarlet Stone
Title: Scarlet Stone
Author: Jewel E Ann
Genre: A romantic suspense standalone
Release Date: December 10th, 2016
What happens when life just stops? When one moment makes you question your entire existence?
Scarlet Stone is a third-generation thief who has everything: a doting fiancé, a spacious London flat, and a legitimate job offer. In a single breath, everything becomes nothing, and she finds herself on a plane to Savannah, Georgia in search of the meaning of life.
After securing a six-month lease for a beachfront house on Tybee Island, Scarlet changes the way she looks, thinks, eats—basically her entire outlook on life. She needs peace, but what she gets is a housemate who looks like Thor, acts like a warden, and smells her proximity like a Bloodhound.
Theodore Reed is a carpenter and perfectionist with a body built of steel, a black, hollow heart, and a hunger for revenge. He doesn’t like company, girly-smelling crap, and British accents.
He resents every breath she takes.
She’s fascinated by his every move.
In time, they discover their coexistence is toxic, their physical attraction is electric, the secrets they keep mean the difference between life and death, and the only truth they share is that everything is a lie.
“Over eighty-five percent of the world's population believes in a higher power, yet, very few people believe in miracles.”

I should know better than to have any expectations when it comes to a Jewel E. Ann book. Although I had read some snippets of Scarlet Stone, I was in no way prepared for the direction this book turned. This is a book you will need to read to experience. Expect the unexpected. Go along for the ride and enjoy the words that flow from the mind of Scarlet Stone.
Scarlet and Theo are thrown together in a rental property owned by a common friend. Neither is happy about the situation. They are seemingly a match made in hell. But as the story progresses, the layers peel back on each of them and they become open to the possibility of being in love.
I really can't share much more of the story. It's just one of those books. The writing is impeccable. The layout and chapter headings draw the reader in. There is humor and steamy, raw, animalistic passion. The secondary characters are also well fleshed out and provide a bit of intrigue. Ultimately, the book is a commentary on life. What makes us happy may not be what we set out to be in life and that is OK. Be true to your heart and then no matter what, you will feel complete.
A great pleasure to read this one. Thank you for another awesome story!
