Stinger (Signs of Love - Scorpio) by Mia Sheridan

Grace Hamilton was the girl with a plan. She knew exactly where her life was going and prided herself on always achieving her goals. It was who she was, and how she lived her life. She never stepped outside the lines, and never considered what she might desire and whom she was actually trying so hard to please. Until him…

Carson Stinger was a man who didn't play by any rules except his own. Working in the adult entertainment industry, he didn't care what others thought, and took each day as it came, no direction, no plan. He knew what women wanted from him and believed it was all he had to offer. Until her… 

When circumstances forced them to spend several hours together, they walked away changed. But for two people who never should have meshed, overcoming the reality of their vastly different lives wasn't possible. At least not yet…

THIS IS A STAND-ALONE NOVEL. The first two books in the series need not be read to enjoy this book. New Adult Contemporary Romance: Due to strong language and sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.

4.5 Stars

Life is wild. 

I am a huge fan of this author. Her Signs of Love series is one of my favorites. So when I came across this newest installment, I dropped what I was reading and immediately picked this up. This was another one of Ms. Sheridan’s couldn’t put it down books. I LOVED the uniqueness of this story, especially the Hero. His occupation was definitely a reason why I picked it up. 

“I was practically born to do it, babe. Created in lust and sin. Destined to do the same.” 

Carson Stinger is a porn star; a Straight Male Performer as his nametag indicates. Yes, ladies, you heard me: A bonafied porn star. **smirks** This is the second book I’ve read that featured such a Hero. Yea. NO COMPLAINTS! I love a Hero who knows their way around

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

When Grace first meets Carson, it was in the Sin City of Vegas. Grace is a law student, in town to attend a convention. She’s pretty straight laced, has her life planned out, without any plans to deviate from that plan. Then she runs into Carson. It’s pretty safe to say that these two butted heads the first time they meet, but the instant chemistry was undeniable. It wasn’t until they were fatefully trapped together in an elevator where things get really interesting, and unbelievably HOT. 

After they were rescued from the elevator, they do exactly what comes next. Grace & Carson are explosive in the bedroom, and one night together isn’t enough. So the two decide to spend the rest of their weekend in Vegas together. 

“Why do you call me Buttercup?” 

They were in their own bubble. Worries about what happens after Vegas were always on their minds, but they were determined to spend the rest of their weekend together. But as their weekend progresses, their connection grows stronger. So what happens after Vegas? Not only does a continent divide them, but Carson isn’t really in a position to drop everything and incorporate himself into Grace’s life. A life in the adult industry is all he knows. What can he possibly offer a woman like Grace?

Sometimes, you don’t even realize anything is wrong until someone comes along and changes you, and makes you want more. 

They ultimately decide to part ways, but neither can ever get over the connection they shared. Little did they know that that weekend they shared changed their lives forever, especially Carson’s. After returning, he can no longer go back to his career. However, with limited options, he decides to join the Navy and strives to become a SEAL. As for Grace, she decides to follow her dreams and change her specialty into becoming a Prosecutor. Years pass, their lives change, but ultimately fate steps in and they’re back in Sin City once again when they reunite. Are the sparks still there? Fuck yea it is, and what happens next is just as good as the beginning. 

“Love doesn’t always make sense. And that’s the great beauty of it, the great mystery – the thing cynics who scoff at so-called ‘insta-love’ would bottle if they could. 

I really enjoyed this story. Lots of reviews I’ve read complained about Grace’s character, but honestly, I didn’t mind her at all. Normally women as stubborn as her makes my palms twitch, but I actually liked her character. As for Carson…well fuck, I just loved him. I find it so romantic that he changed his life because of Grace. His bad-ass SEAL persona didn’t hurt either. No worries, this is a stand-alone and reading the prior two of the series is not required. Ms. Sheridan is definitely a go-to author for me and I can’t wait to see what she writes next.
