This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Behind every good man...is the love of an even better woman. Those were just pretty words before I met Claire Montgomery. Before my fairy queen burst into my life, I didn’t recognize the bastard in my morning mirror - but her love has given me the strength to face the imposter, even embrace him. With Claire at my side, I’m the king I always wanted to be, the Killian Stone I always dreamed of becoming.

Which means for once, I want the mask guarding my secret to stay right where it is.

If you want the grown-up fairy tale... learn to love the dark side.

Profound sentiment. Wish I could get on board with it but the prince in pinstripes has other ideas. Life has been a dream since Killian burst into the ball offering the perfect fit - his heart and mine.

But the treasures he bestows have become his armor, hiding the man I yearn to know.

I refuse to open his little velvet box until he opens himself, letting me see even the dark hallways of his soul...

Fate has always bowed to my bidding.

I should have known it was just picking its time to exact the best revenge, to reveal the secrets that will destroy everything. Without my disguise, am I still the man Claire fell in love with...or another penniless prince vying for an unattainable dream?

Mistress of his ruin?

He always told me to be careful what I wish for. By demanding his truth, have I not only demolished the dream we had...but the man I’ve loved more than any other?

Sexy love story

This was a great story. I listen only in the car but this book I couldn't stop listening. this is the second book in Killian and Claire's story. In this part, Killian does not feel worthy of Claire because she now knows his secret. He tries to stay away but just can't but he also can't have her. You will love the conclusion to this story.

Can’t get enough

Well let’s start by saying, these two amazing authors cannot write a bad book and this book just proves that.

No More Masquerade is Book 2 in the Secrets Of Stone series by Angel Payne and Victoria Blue. I recommend starting with book 1 to get a better grip on what’s going on through this book/series and what’s going on with this couple. After listening book 1 in this series I knew I needed me some more Killian!

Book 2 Angel and Victoria deliver us an emotional, heart wrenching, hot as hell plot, full of passion, drama, and heart break.

Killian Stone? A man alone, and lost... he’s no longer the powerful CEO we know him as, His brother Trey a nasty piece of work comes into the picture and rips apart this mask Killian had in place, and the world he thought he knew to be true comes falling down hard around him. After losing his biological father and his adoptive father, his life is in ruins and his brother Trey isn’t making it any easier for him. He becomes a shell of the man he once was.

Claire Montgomery? She needs to make a decision whether she’s going to fight for Killian and get him back or walk away completely, and it’s one of the hardest things she’ll have to do,

These two together are intense and all consuming and if I’m honest, probably one of my all time favourite book couples. Not only is this book full of heartbreak, but it’s got a fairytale feeling to it, plus add in a whole lot of twists and turns along the way and you are left with a love story so consuming that you spend days thinking about the whole plot after finishing the book.

Once again Jason Clarke nails the role of Killian and Devon continues to warm up to me!

I highly recommend this series. I was a little late when I started reading these books but boy am I glad I’ve started!

Loved this one too!!

It took a while for the HEA for Killian and Claire but worth it. Some twists and turns and enjoying the series. I am a big fan of Jason Clarke and that take no prisoners sexy voice!!!!! Looking forward to the next chapter. Although Trey was a bummer he was an integral part of the first book bringing things to point. On to the next book, happily of course. Thank you Jason and Devon for some great narration too.

Good story

This was a very good read. Enjoyed the story line, just wished it has a complete HEA to end out the love story. But due to the fact he got the company back and the girl I truly enjoyed reading.

A perfect happy ever after

Wow this book was so sad at times and in parts I actually cried the ending was one of the best I’d listened too in a while , both Jason Clarke and Devon Grace were excellent I’m looking forward to listening to the next book in this series.
