A must read!! This was a great book and I could not put it down. This book is a part of a series and does not end in a cliff-hanger. You need to read this one!

I'm going with 4.5 Mr. Stone Stars. I'll review this soon. I need some time to collect my thoughts.

Thoughts have been collected. Review is finally here.

So, Daniel Stone is the new Christian Grey. Only, I'm pretty sure I'd rather have Mr. Stone in my bed than Mr. Grey. Stone doesn't seem quite as fucked up as Grey does. Oh well.

Now, Bethany is a girl after my own heart. I can't live without my Kindle, but really there is no comparison to finding yourself lost in a room with shelves stacked h

Well,I was so honoured to be given an ARC of this book and I was not disappointed!! If you looking for a male who always gets his own way no matter what and has enough power and money to turn your head then look no further then the hot alpha male that is Daniel Stone!!! This book although from a brand new author will leave you counting the days for the next one there are so many twists and turns it will make your head spin but you will not be able to put the book down it is totally addictive and ...more

This book was amazing!! I could not put this book down. I really didn't have any words to give this book. It made me mad, love, sad, and "NO!!! Why did that have to happen (which I said a couple times)."

If anyone needs a good love story, don't go any where else!! I am waiting on pins and needles for the next book. Well done, Dee!! I am looking forward to more of your work!! It was an honor to get this book for free, for an honest review!

‘Never a Choice’ gives lessons in forgiveness and selflessness along with cruelty and malice. It shows that, literally, for some there is no choice but surrender.
Do I agree? Not exactly. Probably because I’m not one to back down.

It just scrapes the surface of BDSM, I’d say it’s vanilla with spice, with a promise of more in the future. There is a chase, there is submission. There is fun and intensity. Nonetheless, the most important factor is mystery.

You never know what to expect, what to think

I do love a good debut novel and Dee certainly gave me that.

Firstly I thought wow this is a big book but I literally flew through it. I couldn't read it fast enough. I had to moan when I put my kindle down to make dinner. Can my family not see I'm reading a gripping book lol

Secondly I thought I was jumping into a story about a rich alpha male and a broken girl. Ok maybe that's true. That's the jist of the story. However the author threw so much more at me. Just when I thought I knew what way t

I don't often leave reviews but since I was so surprised by this book I felt it deserved to have some attention brought to it! I actually got this book for free on Amazon. I'm always skeptical about new authors because I can be quite hard to please. But I was very pleasantly surprised by Dee Palmer's novel. I loved the characters almost instantly and the plot kept me hooked throughout. While not exactly a 'dark' romance it definitely had enough of an edge to keep me sated! I'm very interested to ...more

I'm not sure where to start other than I am mad at myself for paying $6 for the trilogy. This story had so much potential, I love a good alpha male and I love a stubborn female. The problem was that throughout the book there were so many errors and sentences that did not make any sense. Normally that doesn't bother me, but there was a lot so it distracted me from the story (sadly this is also an issue in book 2/3). Another thing was that there was a lot of similarities with another book that fea ...more

Wow - I'm so impressed with this book! I came across Never A Choice through Kindle Unlimited and I'm so glad I took a chance and starting reading it. I'm a sucker for the hot, wealthy, obsessive/possessive, dominant alpha, and Daniel Stone doesn't disappoint. In fact, he's been added to my growing list of favorite leading men! I love the chemistry between Daniel and Bethany, they are smoking hot together and I really enjoyed their budding romance, it felt authentic and I could really imagine mys ...more

Hello Mr Stone!! If you enjoy books like 50 shades and crossfire with Christian and Gideon then you will wanna meet Daniel Stone in the Choice trilogy by Dee Palmer.
This was a great first book of the trilogy. I was completely captivated by Bethany and Daniel's story.
Once I started reading I couldn't stop. I had to see what was gonna happen next.
Bethany meets Daniel as a guest lecturer at her university. Sparks fly and love follows. They are perfect for one

I'm always wary of investing the time into reading a new author, but there was no need to be with "Never a Choice". I was surprised at how quickly I got into this story. The book flowed smoothly from the first chapter, and I 'got' the characters from the start'! This was a one-sitting read - a rare thing for me nowadays. It's a book that stands alone as a good read, but left me wanting to know where the story goes from here. There is plenty in the leading lady's life to give the reader a break f ...more

Wow

This book reminds me a little of FSOG. Daniel is similar to Christian. I feel like I'm reading about Christian again. As for Bets she does remind me of Ana, college virgin student, smart, strong and very submissive. She also doesn't take crap from Daniel lol. But all in all it has it's very own story. I really enjoyed reading it. I can't wait to find out what happen to Kit her sister because that's some series shot she pulls.

I don't usually leave reviews. I normally rate with stars and thats about it but I had to put something down after finishing this book. A friend recommended it, I mean really recommended it and I'm so glad she did. I couldn't put it down. The characters are engaging, the sex is hot as hell and there are more twists than a country road in Cornwall. Loved it and can't wait for the next one. ...more

Sorry to say that i was disappointed in this. Don't get me wrong..it checks all the boxes....Good hearted virgin heroine, rich and gorgeous alpha male, good sex, and a decent story with secrets, lies, betrayal and suspense....sounds good right?? And i may have really enjoyed this a few years ago, BUT...

Starting off, the first half of the book is pretty boring. Yes, there is good sex, but other than that it was dull..it didn't really start to get good and suspenseful until about 60%. The hero tic

This is book #1 in the Choices Trilogy from new author Dee Palmer....it's not perfect but it's certainly gripping with lots of drama.

For me, although said to be a BDSM/D/s book, it was less about that and more about the story.

There is so much that happens in this first book that it's kind of hard to review without giving too much away. 
Bethany is on her own, with no family to speak of really, except the family that have taken her in. She's hard working and struggling to juggle her education with

I received a copy of this through NetGalley - so my thanks as always, and my honest review.
3.5 stars actually. Can we all lament a moment and bow our heads one more time praying for the ability to leave 1/2 star ratings? Cuz truly, this deserves more than 3 stars, but it's not quite 4 stars in my rating world. Okay...on to the book. Well that was a lot of sex! A lot of hot, steamy, well-written sex. And there was a story here too...so extra bonus! I was sure that by the time I got to the end of
