This rollercoaster finale for the Heart of Stone series cannot be read without previously reading the whole series. The places Ms. Sidebottom takes the reader will shock, hurt and scandalize you, make your hair stand up on end, and trigger off one hundred and one sentiments! She has created two damaged soles into two loving and forgiveable characters. She has delved deep into taboo subjects such as drug abuse, violence, prostitution and sexuality so brutally that her characters, Ava and Mason, come alive and survive a turmoil of unimaginable problems. These two adorable people are always supported by loving friends and to put it in a nutshell, a must read. Really well written and light years better than 50 Shade of Grey. I can’t wait for the 24th December to see how Kane’s story unfolds. Simply bravo señora.
