This was an enjoyable read, though a little choppy with the storyline. I could see what the author was trying to do but it didn't feel seamless. It was still fluid, just a little choppy. I liked the characters and I wish there was a little more detail added to some of their storylines because I wanted more.

I felt that this book even if it was a BDSM erotic book was still quite conservative in some ways, or maybe it's just me but I enjoyed it. It didn't really stick out to me that's why I gave it three stars but I would still recommend it for an in-between read since it is fast-paced and easy to read for non-native speakers of the language.

Liv Arnold has a way with words— and this novel gets five hot chili peppers. And five shiny stars.

Along with lovable characters and a fast-paced story, Stepping Stone mixes heart, heat, and sizzling tension to create a perfectly seasoned and deliciously steamy romance novel.

I could not put this book down.

Hilarious read. A lot of laughs. Also, the story was deeper compared to most normal novels with themes of mental health and PTSD.

This absolutely had all the right bits! I really liked the characters, the story, the chance at a second chance. I'm a sucker for those. The beginning didn't really catch my attention. In fact, I wasn't sure if I wanted to read much more. But the middle had all the right ingredients! Unfortunately, I don't know that it would win a bake off. Some moments seemed too much, while others seemed not enough. There was also a lot of unnecessary detail that I found myself skimming through a lot of times.

This book was a lot of fun. It was such a cute second chance romance. The representation of ptsd and mental illness was done very well and respectfully. I enjoyed it. I found it witty and spicy and had a blast reading it.

A complimentary copy of this book was provided by NetGalley. Opinions and reviews are my own. Choppy but fun read. The characters were interesting and so I give it 3 stars for a read that is quick and has minimal depth.

Ok, let me start by saying I tried to like this book but it just fell short for me. It felt skippy in a weird way, like choppy and jumbled. I also couldn't relate to the characters and I felt like there wasn't enough chemistry there..

For me this book had sooooo much potential! But I think it fell short becuase it was trying to incorporate too many different plots such as .. enemies to loves, jilted ex, lesbianism, poly, bisexual and they didnt really get explored in a way that they jived with the story. I like ALL of those but the story was too short to fully incorporate these so it felt awkward

Jenna and Marco are two people that I rooted for from the beginning!! This was a great story. PTSD should be properly addressed since so many of our military goes through this. That’s why I liked this story. It gives you such a look into the lives of the people affected. I highly recommend this story! It has all the feels and these main characters just have the “IT” factor.
