Solid Stone reminds me a bit like 50 Shades, which I do like about this story, however, I had a hard time connecting with Violet. She's a 23 year old that came across more like a teenager with her first crush. I think I would have enjoyed this story more if she was a bit more mature. Adam characters was very well written. He was a mature, strict and cold business man who was immediately drawn to Violet. It was a bit weird that Violet had fantasies about an alter ego and a prince. I would have rather that not been part of the story but it was the reason the author was able to introduce a new lifestyle between Violet and Adam. There will be a second in the series and I am intrigued to see if the second book will be better developed.
