Here's the latest reviews:
Cray Diamond has spent nearly a century with a curse that makes him turn to stone when the sun rises. With the curse comes a job of protection. He must protect a person until he is released and moves to the next person.
Loretta Shaw is a spoiled rich girl that pretty much gets whatever she wants by behaving outrageously. She has a body guard with her always.
For the last three years, Cray has been watching over Loretta. He has watched her sleep with man after man but has promised to protect her. Her father has hired him to protect Loretta and he takes the job seriously. Loretta has wanted Cray since she first met him, but Cray won’t sleep with his clients - ever. So to get back at Cray, Loretta sleeps with as many men as she can to get him out of her system.
Stone Cold Lover by Mel Tescho was a book that promised an interesting storyline but, in the end, failed to deliver. Loretta came across as a spoiled brat. Cray came across as a man that wanted to do right by her because of a promise to her father. I didn’t feel a connection between Cray and Loretta. I liked Cray because you understand him through the story and why he is what he is. You don’t get that chance with Loretta, and she just comes off as shallow.
For over a hundred years Cray has been cursed to live as a Gargoyle, stone by day and shifting monster by night. He is compelled to protect. Over the years he has learned to not let his charges get too close. But for the last three years he has been forced to watch as Loretta chews through men, going from one bed to the next, as his body and mind burn for her. Loretta has been called the brat heiress; she always gets what she wants and what she wants is Cray.
Stone Cold Lover is a fun, fast paced, seductive read with characters that will endear themselves to the reader. I like how Loretta goes after what she wants and doesn't apologize for anything. Rather than come off as a knock off Paris Hilton, she is more of a strong, independent, sexual woman. She is a great match for Cray, who is just as determined and very much an alpha. I wish I has someone like him to come to my rescue. I was never really sure how a relationship between the two of them would work out until the end. The sex between the two of them was earthy and hot but it was also too short and rushed. Quickies are great, but there is a point where the author can take it too far. There are also a few aspects of the characters that are mentioned but go unexplained, leaving me thinking, “Huh? What the...how?” I think that if Ms. Teshco fleshed out these parts a little bit it would make a more cohesive overall storyline. In here the good balances out the bad making for an enjoyable read. In the end, I believe that most readers will find Stone Cold Lover to be an easy, uncomplicated read that is easy to get into and enjoy.
