Publisher's Summary

My name is Stone Ridge and I'm a f--king go getter...I set my sights on what I want and go after it. Not giving up easily is what I'm known for.

Well...that and shaking my dick for money. I take pride in knowing I'm damn good at both.

Screaming girls everywhere, willing to drop their panties for me and toss their money my way, yet there's only one girl that I can't get out of my f--king head. Especially since she's my damn roommate.

Sage Knox....

Things were hot between us, both of us looking for the best f--ks of our lives; a way to have fun and get off without becoming attached.

Until I decided that being attached to her is what I want.

She pushed away, afraid of being hurt like she has been since the day her parents abandoned her and her brother Hemy. Every single person in her life has crushed her.

I understand her worries and I'm willing to do anything now to take them all away.

I'm making her mine one way or another...beginning with my damn body.

Decent stripper romance

3 stars

TBH, I had mixed feelings about this story. I expected certain things, like the heavy emphasis on sex (which it was) and I expected to see other women throw themselves at Stone (which they did) and I even expected Sage to be iffy about getting involved with Stone (which she was). But there were other elements that I encountered (and maybe I should have expected) that made me not like the story as much. This is the first story I've read by this author and while I think it was a good story overall, I just don't think her writing style/content is for me.

FYI: Being the subject of voyeurism/having sex in public is a heavy theme in this story.

Trigger warning: We get an explicit scene in the beginning of Stone getting a blow job from a strange woman. It's while he and Sage aren't sleeping together and doesn't happen again but it was something I really didn't want to read.

Sage is a hair dresser that works in a friend's salon. She lost her family when she was young...something about her parents being bad so her and her brother, Hemy (hero of [book:Hemy|22465053]), were taken from them. Sage and Hemy got separated and Sage was alone for a long time. Once her and Hemy were reunited, Sage latched on to him but then closed herself off from any other type of relationship because if she got attached and lost that person, she'd be destroyed.

Stone is a male stripper that works at a place called "Walk of Shame". He's roommates with Hemy and Sage and apparently his family life wasn't good either.

So, apparently Stone and Sage got involved in a "roommate/friends with benefits" relationship when they first became roommates. Stone wanted more but he let Sage control things so she'd be more comfortable and come around eventually. Instead, Sage realizes that she's falling for Stone and could get hurt so she cuts him off and starts avoiding him. 7 months down the line, Stone is fed up with letting Sage push him away so he uses her strong attraction to him against her through sex. Sage is scared and basically ignores everyone's advice, causing angst for both her and Stone. Stone uses his body against Sage and also manages to remind her of the non-sexual fun they can have together and eventually, they get together for real, ending the story seemingly headed towards a HEA together.

I think this story was good for the most part but there were some plot holes and things that didn't work for me. Some of those are on me (is it possible to get bored with too many sex scenes?) but not all (I'm sorry but a stripper beats up a MMA fighter with hardly any effort? Really?). Sage was agood heroine...except when she was being a scaredy cat. Stone seemed like a good guy but his plan to make Sage feel more comfortable by letting her control things was kind of stupid and came very close to ending them so I felt like he shouldn't have let her have all the control for so long. Overall, this was a decent story but it just wasn't for me. Since I know some of the issues are personal preferences and not an issue with the story itself, I gave it a solid 3 stars.

HOT... HOT... HOT!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Absolutely! I love the Walk of Shame men! They just keep getting better and better!

What other book might you compare Stone to and why?

The rest of the Walk of Shame series because they are all hot, sweet and sexy!

What about Samantha Cook and Lorenzo Matthews ’s performance did you like?

I liked how they had their own flare and brought the book to life.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Hold your panties ladies because Stone is about to claim them!

Any additional comments?

I absolutely adore this series!

Sadly disappointed

I really enjoyed the first books in the Walk of Shame series. The characters, story lines and the narrators, were all great. Unfortunately, this Second generation series is not off to a good start. I normally don't like giving a bad review, but for me the narrators sounded bored. The different voices/characters were mediocre.
