“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?
Wow! Just wow! 5 Porcupine’s pissing Stars!!
Scarlet isn’t just your ordinary girl but a thief. Her mum died when she was 2 and she was raised by her unconventional dad, Oscar, who taught her everything she needed to know on how to steal from those who didn’t deserve to be rich. In nicer terms. Lol
One appointment turns her life upside down and she decides to leave her life and the people she loves behind. She goes to Georgia to find peace and to just live. But she doesn’t expect to find Theo.
Scarlet is someone that is easy to relate too. You connect with her on so many levels that you feel her pain, her happiness, her despair, her lust, her anger and the moment she finds peace. I wanted to be her friend to hold her hand and give her advice. To help guide her. Jewel wrote such a strong, independent woman with a lot of depth that you couldn’t help but become completely attached to her.
Theo is a man. A really hot man but still a man. He angered me so many times but when Scarlet broke through his walls I cried for him. My heart broke for him. I’ve never felt so much love for two characters as I did in Scarlet Jones.
