Some may say I'm quiet and unassuming. It would shock most that my nights are filled with dark elaborate fantasies. I never thought they’d come to life until I opened the door to Adam Stone, the Master of the Boardroom and the Bedroom. My tantalizing new reality with Adam scares the hell out of me. I know I should run like hell, but I can’t. He makes me want more, mu

ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.

First off, I was super happy and grateful to the author for giving me a chance to read his work. I always appreciate it, when someone gives you something that they've been working really hard on in exchange for your honest opinion and critique.

When I started reading this story I found the first few chapters quite interesting, since you not only get the modern version of the story but also historical love scenes and I have to admit, I have not

4**** Steamy stars from me

Well that was a really enjoyable story, Solid stone is the first part of the series and if you're looking for a steamy erotic romance then this story definitely suits you. I could say this book in reality is about a girl where her fantasies come true, well maybe she doesn't meet a Prince by the definition we know from fairytales, he is more dark and controllable.

From the explicit narration throug

What can I say about Adam Stone’s major hotness? He’s so dominant. It’s kind of sexy.
This book did not disappoint. I loved every part of it including the surprise ending. I’m trying not to write spoilers because I could never do it justice. I loved Violet and her daily affirmations. I loved how the first night she spent with Adam wasn’t sleazy up against the wall sex. (My romantic side I guess.)

Mindy Lou's Book Review
Solid Stone reminds me a bit like 50 Shades, which I do like about this story, however, I had a hard time connecting with Violet. She's a 23 year old that came across more like a teenager with her first crush. I think I would have enjoyed this story more if she was a bit more mature. Adam characters was very well written. He was a mature, strict and cold business man who was immediately drawn to Violet. It was a bit weird that Violet had fantasies about an alter ego and a prince. I would have ra ...more

When it comes to 'Solid Stone' by E.G. Patrick, my opinion is to go into it blind. I say that because the way this heartbreaking and beautifully erotic story unfolds is just to die for, at least for me it was! Violet knows the alluring Adam Stone is renowned in the high-powered corporate world. He consumes all of Violet's thoughts. A control freak, Adam is determined to possess all of her. They embark on a passionate odyssey. How far is Violet willing to go to keep their relationship alive? Secr ...more

This was a sexy-panties are optional-story, which had me clenching my thighs and wishing it was me, not Violet, receiving the pleasure!! Violet's innocence showed right through her and I'd like to think that's why Adam becomes so intrigued with her.

As Adam showed Violet what she'd been missing out, I saw the Domineering Alpha in him and, to be honest, at times I wanted to smack him. Poor Violet didn't know what she was exactly getting into when she said yes to Adam...but, boy, she was about to

Ok this is a DNF. What a snore fest! I can't even see or feel any attraction between these two. He is cold and indifferent. I like dominate characters, but just not feeling it with him. She is desperate and it comes through. Her little fantasies are snooze feasts too. Blah Blah..I feel like I am listening to the teacher from Charlie Brown. Sorry just another rip off of 50 Shades without the feelings and I hate saying that.

I struggled to at least get to the point where they finally had sex, but after that scene utterly disappointed me, I'm done. The writing is formal and weird and I just can't take it anymore.

Reviewed by T’s Blogging
6:52 p.m.

Steamy and sensual along with the most mind blowing sex, which covers countless pages of E. G. Patrick’s “Solid Stone,” this book entices and excites. When readers think there is no other way for the author to create an interesting and arousing sex scene, they are not let down. Patrick opens doors to a world that seems vaguely familiar and sometimes titters toward the realm of fan-fiction. Ero

I am really sorry to do this, for I am aware the author put a lot of work into this, but COME ON!

This honestly read like written from a teen.

The heroine came across as an insecure, immature thirteen year old.

The supposed alpha hero was no alpha, but a prat.

I did not feel the insta love.

Insta love as in the virgin heroine gets naked after count one with the hero, ready to jump his bones.

This book was an ok read for me. When I started this book all I was thinking was how the writing style was rather different. I don't know how to explain the writing style the author uses, ummm, formal? Yes, I felt as though the author was being extremely "formal" with her writing. At first I thought it would get better, but it didn't. It was for the entire book. Now, I'm not saying it was terrible! I'm just saying that if I'm reading a story, I want the story and actions done by the c

I read this a few days ago but I completely forgot to come in here and do a review.

I wish I would have have time to read this book all in one day because I really did enjoy it but I was so busy that I didn't have time to read it all right away.

This is a good sexy and steamy novel and I loved every minutes of it. It is very well written and I have to say I can't wait to read more. Solid Stone: Odyssey will be published in June this year with book three, Solid Stone: Choices to follow in the fall

This was a highly sexual book. I really enjoyed how Violet and Adam met and the automatic connection they had with each other. If you like a lot of sexist a great storyline then this book is for you. And of course you can't have the good without the bad. Violet and Adam had their fair share of bad times. So this is not a totally happy book.

In the style of Fifty Shades of Grey, Solid Stone features an awkward but supposedly smart early twenty-something virgin who meets a late twenty-something control freak/super successful man. Except, I found Violet childish, Adam dull, and the sexy bits wooden.

2.5 stars. I like the concept of the story, but I have to many issues.. Sorry..

I found the premise of this story intriguing. Who doesn’t love a billionaire alpha-male? Meet Violet Cole the innocent paralegal who unwittingly catches the attention of a legal-God in the form of Adam Stone.

I loved the synopsis for this book. It certainly focuses the attention of its readers towards an explosive connection between a “self-admitted control freak” and a woman with “untapped beauty”. For me it certainly set the scene for what looked to be an intense story. From the excitement of t

This is my first book by E.G. Patrick and I can honestly say I have no idea what to think, don’t get me wrong the story is great, Violet is amazing but I’m not sure about the rest of it. For example, when I was reading through I noticed that sometimes there wasn’t enough context to fill in with each scene. When creating a story, you need to make sure that when you are filling in the scenes that all the right details are included otherwise it won’t work to its full potential, it just seemed like ...more

When I received Solid Stone I knew it had already been published so I avoided reading any of the blurbs about it or looking up any of the info pertaining to the author so I could go into it with a completely open mind. Its not often I get to do that with a brand new author that I have never been acquainted with so that in itself was exciting. EG Patrick, from her emails, seemed like a complete sweeth

Amazing debut novel by this author!! Let me just start out by saving too funny on how this book got its title.

I'm not sure how to articulate my feelings on this particular book. Since I gave it a four star rating, I obviously enjoyed it.

My biggest dilemma is how I feel about Violet. Let me start at the ending first. By the end of the story I begin to like Violets character but here, let me back track and explain Violet. Violets character is a 23 year old woman who is a history major and a paralegal. With that said it tells that her character is intelligent yet when she meets Adam Stone, her character's

I don’t think I was reading the same book as all the other reviewers here that exclaimed how wonderful this was. I found it extremely hard to become invested in the story between Violet who is a virginal paralegal that has these glorified fantasies that she is a submissive slave who submits to her Master the Prince. I just found the narration about these fantasies very boring and childlike especially for a woman Violet’s age even though she is still a Virgin. Enter Adam who is a very young but p ...more

I was excited when I first started to read this book because of all the action and sex sweaty workouts between Adam and violet but after the first few chapters the sex started to get monotonous. I mean, don’t get me wrong, the sex is mind blowing and which hot blooded gal will not like some action with the story! But for me, I like when a story has a good plot with gut wrenching climax and a purpose all tie in with the sex.

Violet and Adam...This book has a lot of potential with a slow growing, sexy introduction in book one. Adam can easily be up there in the top five of your favorite book boyfriends after we see where this story goes in book two Odyssey. Without giving too much away to a scene toward the end of the book, it's just getting good, I mean that sexually, real good.

Solid Stone by E.G. Patrick is a good book. The chemistry between Adam and Violet is hot. This book is a series and continues in another book.

Violet is a young paralegal. Adam is a successful lawyer. A chance encounter in a revolving door these to embarrassing introductions in a merger meeting. Violet and Adam can’t deny the chemistry they have, but Adam doesn’t do love. Violet finds herself wanting Adam, maybe more than he wants her.
