Stone is my first book by Kelly Gendron. While it can be read as a standalone, I would highly suggest reading the other books in the series first as there are a lot of characters and connections that I was lost on.

I'm not going to lie. I struggled with this one a bit. I found the connection between Stone and Jaggs a bit lacking. That doesn't mean I didn't like them together, I did. I just wanted more from them. I get that Jaggs had less than noble intentions when she worked her way into the Kan

STONE is the fifth instalment in Kelly Gendron’s contemporary, adult DARING THE KANE BROTHERS erotic, romance series focusing on the Kane siblings. This is former EOD specialist US army soldier / guitarist Stone Kane, and auto mechanic Amanda aka Jaggs Downey’s story line. STONE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalments is revealed where necessary. Daring the Kane Brothers is a spin-off from the author's Breaking the Declan Broth ...more

What a book. I didn't really know what to expect from this book. I hadn't read this author before and didn't realize this was a part of a series. As it totally didn't read like one. It was for me a great read and a perfect standalone.

This book is an enemy to lovers and a brilliant one at that. At the start of the book, I wasn't even sure there would be a way for this couple to even hold a conversation and wondered how on earth the story would ever end in a HEA.

I was pulled right into this story. The story has secrets, pain, laughs, naughty fun, panty melting alpha, and heartbreak.

If you have not read the below I would recommend reading those books(s) first as Token crossed over into Zeke’s book of the below series. Lurlene is Token’s sister:
Jax (Breaking the Declan Brothers #1)

This is the fifth book in the series, and I would highly recommend that you read them in order, as undoubtedly you will fall back into the Kane world much more quickly that way - and understand some pretty complex family dynamics! But if you start here, you will also get an amazing story, and will definitely be tempted to go back and get the full level of goodness.

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads, so here is my review.
I have waited for Stone's book because who doesn't love the bad boy rocker? Well, he has his demons and they haunt him daily. His way of dealing with them is his addiction. He tries to fight that too but sometimes he falls off the wagon and sometimes he jumps off that wagon. Music is what helps him but sometimes he can't keep the demons of his Army days away. And then there is the day he met Jaggs that

The Kane Brothers series is excellent, Stone was the one that was most mysterious. Thought he was a famous rocker, that did not mean that he felt successful and it was heartbreaking to see his side of things. Then there was Jaggs, and that is a whole 'nother situation that will tug at your heart. These two started off as straight up enemies because you can feel how much Jaggs hates Stone and seeing the progression is really what makes it special.

This is the first book I've read by Kelly Gendron (and yes, I realize it's out of order) and I absolutely loved it. I can tell you right now I will be reading more. The story drew me in from the very beginning and the characters were so relatable.

Stone and Jaggs have such broken backgrounds. That they would find each other, and that they would be exactly what the other needs to heal each other... So beautiful! And that ending!!! It was perfect! All of it! The humor, the tenderness, the family!

Stone is the packed full of emotions, Kelly Gendron gutted me with Stone's story and then tore my heart out with Jaggs' story. The words she put on the pages pulled me into Stone's story. I didn't want to climb back out.

Past books in the series told the reader that Stone had problems. Past books told the reader that he had the support of his family. Past books told the the reader that his family never gave up hope that Stone would find his purpose and himself.

Past books gave us a big of Jagg.

Wow I enjoyed this book. The characters are well developed and engaging with undeniable chemistry between the couple which made for a great storyline that kept me entertained throughout the pages. Looking forward to reading more books by this author.

Jaggs is best friends with Crash Kane and is watching his shop and house for him when his brother Stone shows up drunk and high. Jaggs loves all of Crash’s family except Stone and there is nothing Jaggs wants except revenge on the man who destroyed her life and took her sister, Jenny, from her.

This was such a great book and I loved it from start to finish!

At the beginning I had no clue what had happened to Jenny but gradually you learn what happened and why Jaggs blamed Stone. I got it but at the same time I knew that Jenny had to blame someone and I did feel bad at how much anger was directed at Stone and how far she really went to get her revenge.

Meeting Stone for the first time definitely did not put him in a good light but I could see that there was much more behind the guard he

What a Great Addition to a Fantastic Series

Stone was the Kane brother who had left and no one really heard anything from him for long periods of time. He was dealing with so much death and destruction after serving in Iraq on the bomb squad. After what he had seen there and then what we are surprised to find out in this book regarding his childhood, it is really no surprise than he had turned to booze and drugs to deal with everything he has been through.

Stone left town because he needs to deal with the trauma he's been dealt. It's been a rough life for this guy and he turns to booze and drugs to mask that pain. And better yet being in a band he's got easy access to those things. Including women... but none of those women can match up to the o

I have read the first three in this series and skipped Nix to land on Stone. It was a while ago when I read the others so any references or preconceptions of the MC’s in this story were not strong. What I read of their characters in this installment left me pondering who Jaggs was especially. I get that she was hard around the edges, her revenge drives her, her history makes the constant push and pull mostly from her get frustrating. She is right to apologize to Stone for being difficult and not ...more

Oh no.... The last Kane brother.... An end of another series.

We have had pits and pieces of these characters throughout the series but never really gotten to see too deep. It kept the suspense of the character alive. I never would have put these two together but.... it was so worth the wait.

Stone has not been around very much over the years. Popping in and out, trying to keep his issues on the low down. Not that he was really hiding anything from any of the brothers. Loving his family but trying

I knew when I started reading the Kane brother's stories, the author was going to take me on an emotional rollercoaster ride and she definitely delivered! The characters are real, relatable, flawed and/or broken. They tug at your heartstrings, cause several tears and make you cheer when they get their HEAs.

This book was Jaggs and Stone's story. They initially meet when her sister Jenny is killed in a bomb blast. A year later Jaggs has worked her way into the Kane family to get revenge on Stone,

I loved Stone he was such a great character and it was easy to fall in love with them. He had his flaws and suffered from addiction, I know how hard it is to love and struggle dealing with someone who struggles everyday but I didn’t like that his family accused him of using again at every chance they had. It made my heart hurt for him and I knew it couldn’t be easy on him but the family is a tight knit group and I’ve loved all of them I just didn’t like how they handled poor Stone’s issues.

This was my first read by this author, and even though I did enjoy it, I didn't love it as much as I wanted to.

Rockstar romances are one of my all time favorite tropes, but there was just so much going on during this one. Jaggs (our heroine) smuggled her way into the family and is very close to the Kane brothers and their significant others, but she's really there to get revenge on Stone. The thing is, Stone has known what her plans are all along, knows that she's deceiving his family.. yet can'

Broken doesn't mean that it can't be repaired. While everyone thought Stone was a bit of a lost cause (even when his family never gave up hope or gave up on him) Jaggs helped him. Made him feel worthy. Also makes him behave. This story is centered on 2 characters that have suffered significant loss and a lot of guilt. Because of it Stone is skeptical about love. But when it comes to Jaggs he just feels at home. On the other hand, his past and present issues hit a little too close to home for Jag ...more

Stone is the final Kane brother in this series and even though I loved Jaggs and Stone together, I am a bit devastated to leave these brother behind as each has had so many trials and tribulations to get to where they are now and I feel like I’m also a part of their family with how they’ve burrowed into my heart❤️

HOLY HELL! I've read many enemies to lovers stories, but then there's Stone, which is leveled up. Jaggs HATES Stone, like not just a little bit, but HATES him, and she's come back to town to get revenge. Stone knows what she's up too, knows her secrets, but I was baffled for much of the book trying to figure out how in the world they could get past everything. This means there's mega drama, next level angst, f-bomb worthy twists since secrets don't make friends, but then there's the chemistry wh ...more

Stone is the story of Jagger and Stone Kane. This is a hate to love stoyline but also a rocker and drug storyline. However while Jagg has hated Stone he has had a big attraction to her but he also understands and forgives her for her hatred of him.

Over the last year she is his brothers best friend, a close family friend and the family loves her. But she is really there to get revenge with Stone until he confronts her. On that night he is drugged and she has to care for him and an attraction is

I truly loved this story. I have enjoyed each and every one of the stories on the Kane Brothers. Stone was totally awesome. We got to see a side of Stone in the book that we did not see in the other books. We truly go to get a good look at him and understand who he is and why he is the way he is.

I loved Jaggs. She was a person that was strong but full of hurt and revenge. This story will let you get a deeper look at her.

There is some serious chemistry going on between Jaggs and Stone. No matte

Jaggs has weasled her way into the Kane family's good Grace's. Her ultimate goal, is to get close to Stone and destroy him like he did her. Revenge is a bugger, especially if you are on the receiving end. But if your target is well aware of you and takes control of the game, where does that leave you?

She truly hates Stone so when this story starts, how these two could end up together is truly a mystery. Each one is caring the battle scars of a hard-lived life. The beauty of this relationship is the patience Stone shows as he finds ways to have Jaggs in his life. This allows both of them to find a comfort zone to co ...more
