Book Estuary Review
This is my second read from Liv Arnold, the first one was a sexy short story, Law & Disorder. You can check out my review here. I already know that Liv’s writing style is great and I expected a great story from Etched in Stone. Surely, Liv did not disappoint in this one. Etched in Stone is a sweet and sexy story with a bit of thrill.
Vanessa is a fresh graduate from college and is about to embark on her dream job when she had herself entangled in an undercover mission because she needed to save her mother from imprisonment. Vanessa was not happy spying for the company she worked for. It turned out that the company’s CEO, Sebastian was the mystery man she met in a changing room a few weeks ago. I think they fell in love quite fast and Sebastian is too perfect, understanding, thoughtful, good looking and kind. At some point, I expected Sebastian to show his dark side and complicate their relationship. But, I was wrong.
Anyhow, I’m happy about how the story progresses and how it ends. It is a refreshing story that you would want to read when you want a temporary escape from reality. It is a story that you can devour in one sitting. There’s not so much drama yet the story can make you connect emotionally to the characters and in some ways relate to what they are going through with your life. The story did it to me so I’m giving this story a 4.7 rating.
