Character development: 👨🏻👱🏻♀️🧔🏻👩🏻
The heroine: Ariana Carter (a.k.a. Tiny) – She is an ER Nurse that lives with her father Nate. Her father has his old friend’s son coming to stay with them when he gets out of prison. Tiny is not too happy about that.
The Hero(es): Michael Barringer (a.k.a. Stone) – Did a stint in prison for Heroin Possession and intent to distribute. He steals the Heroin from drug dealers and dumps it in the river, but he was caught with a large quantity that belonged to this guy named Bucky. Bucky approaches Stone in Prison and tells him that his father and his father’s friend Nate used to work with him. He tells Stone that if he doesn’t pay him back for the Heroin he stole, his life expectancy won’t be long
The Story: Bucky tells Stone to go stay with Nate and find out where Nate hid seven million dollars that he stole from Bucky. He tells Stone that if he can’t find the money, Stone is supposed to make Ariana fall in love with him then break her heart.
However, when Stone agrees to Bucky’s plan he doesn’t feel bad about what he is going to do to them. He grew up in foster care until his Dad, Jack adopted him and when Jack died Stone was only eighteen and couldn’t afford to keep the house and partially blames Nate for not being there for him.
Ariana is a virgin and Stone is the big bad boy who was in prison for five years so there is a ton of sexual tension and a few very steamy scenes. The book itself wasn’t long, but I liked the end and I would like to read more from the series.
The narration was good. I thought both the male and female narrator had perfect voices for Stone and Tiny. The only thing I really didn’t like was that Ariana was a “Curvy” girl. The nickname Tiny was a sarcastic nickname from her high school years because she is the opposite of Tiny. I hate it when books focus on how the heroine is “Chubby” or “Curvy”. I think the weight of the heroine should not be mentioned at all that way readers who like the BBW and “Curvy” girls can picture that in their heads and readers who like to picture a thin girl can picture that.
