Title: Scarlet Stone
Author: Jewel E Ann
Genre: A romantic suspense standalone
Release Date: December 10th, 2016
“My name is Scarlet Stone, and my biggest fear is that someday I will find what I want most in life, and it will be impossible to steal.” What happens when life just stops? When one moment makes you question your entire existence? Scarlet Stone is a third-generation thief who has everything: a doting fiancé, a spacious London flat, and a legitimate job offer. In a single breath, everything becomes nothing, and she finds herself on a plane to Savannah, Georgia in search of the meaning of life. After securing a six-month lease for a beachfront house on Tybee Island, Scarlet changes the way she looks, thinks, eats—basically her entire outlook on life. She needs peace, but what she gets is a housemate who looks like Thor, acts like a warden, and smells her proximity like a Bloodhound. Theodore Reed is a carpenter and perfectionist with a body built of steel, a black, hollow heart, and a hunger for revenge. He doesn’t like company, girly-smelling crap, and British accents. He resents every breath she takes. She’s fascinated by his every move. In time, they discover their coexistence is toxic, their physical attraction is electric, the secrets they keep mean the difference between life and death, and the only truth they share is that everything is a lie. “Over eighty-five percent of the world's population believes in a higher power, yet, very few people believe in miracles.” Do you believe?

Jewel E. Ann has done it again.
I loved her previous book One
and with every book of hers,
I have high expectations
when she releases something new.
Scarlet Stone is another strong and powerful story from Jewel E. Ann.
I simply loved the main character Scarlet. It's not every book that I feel a love and connection towards the main female character but here
I fell in love with Scarlet.
She was a fierce,
honest and funny as hell British woman with some outstanding skills
as a thief and anecdotes.
She loved her father Oscar
who adored his daughter and he would do literally anything for her.
Their relationship was heartwarming
and at times hilarious.
The story has a great mixture of humor, sentimentality and sensuality.
The themes really struck a chord with me because of the human aspect of the story.
I really didn't know what to expect and where it took Scarlet but once I reached two chapters I was a goner.
The story was different, so was Scarlet and her current circumstances took me by surprise. It only made the story more alluring and intriguing.
The same can be said about a certain man named Theodore Reed.
He was a mystery at first.
His moody and angry personality created some very funny scenes with Scarlet who wasn't afraid of him at all to begin with.
On the contrary,
she was having the time of her life.
For the first time in a long time.
Theodore and Scarlet were insanely hot and so good together.
They challenged each other,
made each other
prioritize and reevaluate life.
But there was a reason Theodore came of as angry and closed off.
He definitely had his secrets and of course being a thief only got Scarlet into trouble. Not only with him but with the other intriguing characters.
Every character was layered,
well developed and
important to the story.
Scarlet's journey was about a soul searching for its mate,
for love and yet so much more.
I was mesmerized and filled with so many emotions ranging from sad to ecstatically happy. Her search wasn't only for love but also for change and growth.
Let me tell you all, Scarlet definitely succeeded with both.
Jewel E. Ann's prose
has never been better.
My expectations have been met and Scarlet Stone is not to be missed.
Fantastic and unique.
