The twists really surprised me. The first half was like a happy go lucky mood but then all hell broke loose. I’ve found myself counting down the days to their reunion. I was glad that both of them found and followed their own interest and passion. For anyone looking for romance and suspense I'd highly recommend this book!

Please check trigger warnings before reading.

Thank you to Netgalley and SOURCEBOOKS Bloom Books for the eARC in exchange for an honest review.

I have really liked Mia Sheridan and her books since I read Archers Voice. While this book carried some of the same themes, it was definitely a different story. While I enjoyed the story, I felt like there was something missing. Maybe it fell in all of the time jumps. Overall though, I enjoyed and would recommend this book.

I love this author but this book was just ok for me. It was an easy read but nothing special that stood out from others.

This was technically a reread for me, but it’s been years and I was surprised at how much I actually forgot about this plot as I was reading.
And years later, it still holds up for me.
Although this is a book filled with tropes I generally claim to hate, Stinger is proof that a good author can make none of that matter.
Stinger is full of heart, finding yourself, realizing what you want out of life, and ultimately who you want to share all of those things with.
Carson and Grace’s journeys are quite different, but very parallel, and when their paths cross for the second time, my heart was in my throat because it’s just so clear that these two belong together.
What I love about Mia’s second chances romances are that you actually get to see & experience the first part where they fall in love and what initially tears them apart. It makes their reunion a hundred times better.
The characters/what makes them tick are well developed, their chemistry jumps off the page, and in classic Mia fashion, there’s a dose of suspense to bring it all together.

Note to publisher: please make your e-arcs in protected mobi or epub format, the pdf was a hot mess with formatting, and since many of us read netgalley books on our kindles, it would be nice to have it laid out in a way that’s actually compatible to our e-readers.

4.5 stars. What started out as a weekend in Vegas where Carson and Grace got to know each other led to inspiring life changes for both of them. Such a hot and heartwarming story. I loved both Carson and Grace. They seemed like opposites, but understood each other so well. They both matured into admirable adults who stand up for what they believe in. Carson really surprised me in the best way. He went from being this fun and flirty guy with sexy moves to someone who demanded more from himself after knowing Grace. He was already swoon worthy in the beginning, but he takes charge of his life choices and is definitely heroic. As for Grace, her ambition and intelligence with her personality only add more to her appeal. Mia Sheridan always creates the best male and female lead characters who rise up from the ashes of life and create their own hard earned destiny with a journey that highlights that inner strength. Highly recommend.

I just loved it, it's a beautiful book years ago I read it for the first time and reading it again is falling in love with the characters again.

They are wonderful characters that make you fall in love with them, it is a beautiful story full of passion, love and self-improvement.

I love him, it's simply a beautiful story, Mine, as always, does not disappoint, it's incredible, I love Carson and his way of finding a way to do something that he loved and made him happy, his desire to get ahead and become something to be proud of of himself.

Absolutely love this story!

Grace and Carson meet at a hotel, both there for conventions, very different conventions. They have a whirlwind weekend. Then have to go their separate ways. But things bring them back together. I love the chemistry between these two.

Nothing makes me happier in a romance novel than growth and maturity between characters - both separately and together. Grace’s growth is exemplified through her initial judgments and prejudices of others, and Carson’s growth is exemplified through his maturity and service to others. Now, you wouldn’t exactly expect this from an adult film star, but that’s what made this so refreshing. Carson no doubt owns his sexuality and appeal, but Grace shows him through her love that there’s more to life than being a playboy. Meanwhile Carson shows Grace that deviating from the plan and expectations is what life is about. They balance each other perfectly and I could feel their love pouring from the pages. This is an easy 5-star and will no doubt be a re-read!

This was a really easy romantic read for me. It did, however, cover a lot of storylines previously explored to death in other books so hence the low rating!
