Blog Tour Review, Playlist & Giveaway: STINGER by Mia Sheridan







STINGER (Sign of Love #3)

by: Mia Sheridan



Release Date: October 1, 2013



Synopsis:


Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him…

Carson Stinger was a man who didn't play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn't care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her… 

When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn't possible. At least not yet…


Review:


Star Rating: 4 out of 5 

Heat Rating:  HOT!!


Sometimes people come into your life and they become the catalyst you need to change your life's direction.  This person changes not only you, but they teach you that what a heart really desires can't be planned.  In Stinger, Carson and Grace find out what happens when you meet someone by chance and they impact your life so strongly, in such a small window of time,  that you are changed by just wanting to be with them.  

I really enjoyed this book and now I wan't my own Carson (sigh)!  Mia Sheridan wrote a funny, heart touching and sexy story about how finding the path to your "meant to be" isn't always a straight line, sometimes the journey is more of an obstacle course. The banter and wit between Carson and Grace was spot on, taking these two polar opposite personalities and pitting them against each other until their chemistry combusts.  Stinger was HIGHLY entertaining (and HOT!) with great pacing and fascinating characters.  The writing style really made this book as addicting as a bowl of M&M's (you can never just take one) and I found myself devouring this book!  Mia Sheridan's style of writing is easy to read, fall into and lose an hour (or 3) in a great story.

The timeline of this book was fantastic!  I loved that you get to "know" these two characters over a span of years, getting little vignettes into what they are doing...(I won't say more, but it was a really interesting way for this story to unfold).  Carson and Grace were the perfect "ying to your yang" couple and I really didn't want to stop reading about these two!  I found myself looking at my % done in the book and stopping, I was afraid to keep going and having to say goodbye to this story (silly but true, I avoided the last 20% for a day because I wasn't ready to let go "never let go").

This was my first book by Mia Sheridan (yes, I know this was #3 in a series, but I didn't know that going in and it didn't have an adverse effect on my enjoyment of the story, Stinger is a complete stand alone).  I have already gone back and bought Leo (book #1) and Leo's Chance (book #2) in this series, just so I can read more of Mia's writing!  Stinger and Mia Sheridan made me laugh out loud, sigh, mist up  (a few times) and then break out in goosebumps when the connection between these two ignited! If I were you, I would DEFINITELY add this to your "buy as soon as it releases" shelf on Goodreads, this is a book you are going to want to read!  October 1st is going to be a good day :)
