Author: Sarah O'Rourke
Genre: Erotic Romance Comedy
Release Date: October 13, 2015
This book is the one that started it all for me. The "it" being my mild obsession with all things Sarah O' Rourke!! A few months ago, the crazies posted a snippet teaser of this story, and I was so amazed by those words that I immediately sent Sarah a message and asked to review their work!! I wasn't above begging if I had to, because I needed these books in my life, I just had to have them. Luckily for me, they didn't make me beg, and sent me over copies of Cain's Salvation and Hard as Stone right away.
As soon as I read them, I was done for. The McKinnon sisters and their men had grabbed hold of my heart, and were not about to let go. I devoured both books, and began, not so patiently, stalking their Facebook page in offer to find out when Abel and Patience would be unleashed! So, when I got the email telling me about the release, I was ecstatic. I just knew this book would be amazing. And, I was not wrong.
After going through two books seeing the sexual tension between these two, and the back and forth, love and hate relationship that they so beautifully portrayed, I couldn't have planned on their coming together being this epic. To see the one sister who never wanted a family, be the one to get one, with the last man she ever expected- yes, just yes. And, what a man Abel Turner is. Sexy as sin, and alpha as can be!! And did I mention the decoration below the belt. Hot freaking damn.
There is plenty of McKinnon love and hilarity as well, which is yet another thing that make these books so amazing. This family is real. The love they have for each of the there is never ending, no matter how much they drive each other crazy. They are family- through and through. They come together to celebrate the good times, they all team up to rescue each other in the scary times, and they comfort one another during the sad ones. Sarah O'Rourke has perfectly captured that sense of family and love in her books, and probably in Abel and Patience's story most. Although, I have a feeling that when Honor and Zeke get their turn, they're going to blow these two out of the water, and will firmly be my favorites.
These two wild and crazy woman, this brilliant team of authors, have quickly cemented themselves in my top favorites. I look forward to the beauty that they have in store for us all in the future!!!
Higher than the highest five star rating!!!!
Patience McKinnon has never even tried to live up to her unfortunate name. Her sisters would gladly point out that she’s impetuous, fickle, and stubborn to a fault. History has taught her that she’s the only one, besides those crazy sisters, that has her best interests at heart...and she’s not about to let down her guard and let herself get hurt. She did that once...and that was more than enough. Next time, she’s fairly certain that she’d rather just shoot first and ask questions later, thank you very much!
Enter Abel Turner. The suave town attorney has had Patience McKinnon in his sights for years. Sure, he strayed along the way, but he’s always come back to the beautiful blonde bartender that fills his dreams and drives him crazy at the same time. After all, he owes her...and he plans to rectify the bad impression he made in the past with a humdinger of a sensual night. But that one night may just change both of their worlds...forever. Will Patience overcome her insecurities? And will Abel ever convince her to trust him again? Join the entire town of Paradise and the intrepid McKinnon sisters in this humorous and poignant erotica romance! Standalone.
“Their writing is steamy, ridiculously funny, and highly entertaining, yet also insightful and observant. I have loved each book in the Paradise series...” ~ Books and Binding
“I LOVED this book. The characters of Patience (maybe by name but definitely NOT by nature) and Abel had me crying with laughter at times throughout this book. And Patience's one liners and insults to Abel were just fabulous.”~ Goodreads Reviewer
