Reviews for Heart of Stone...


Spicy Romance!

"Heart of Stone is a very spicy romance that delves into the lives of both dominant and submissive partners. Willink is a very talented writer, and her ability to weave a story together flawlessly is very apparent in this steamy romance."

​This was 50 Shades on steroids!!!

"OMG! What a book!!!! My review will not do this book justice and I apologize in advance!! I LOVED this book!! I have read 50 shades and loved it, and this book was as sexual as that, but to me, this was 50 shades on steroids! The best part is this is book 1!!!!"

Awesome read...I couldn't put it down!

"I started reading it and could not put it down! This is the first book that I have read from Dakota Willink and I am very impressed with her writing, and the way she hooks the reader."

Talented Author!

"Dakota Willink is definitely a talented author. She easily created a world of dominance that I was drawn into. Even if readers are not familiar with BDSM or are uncomfortable with that lifestyle, they won't be able to stop reading this book. Willink is that good. She created characters that I liked and was invested in, and I really wanted to know out what their secrets were and how the other characters would react when they found out."

This book was fantastic! Anyone who is a 50 Shades fan should read Heart of Stone. Krystina and Alex's sexual chemistry is amazing! This book has a great story line and leaves the reader wanting more! I can’t wait for Dakota’s next book in this series to be released.

Steamy, smart and so well-written!

I found this book to be a pleasant surprise. I was expecting the typical Fifty Shades crap, but it was definitely much more. Alexander was more complex than I expected him to be. Yes, he was alpha, but he was also layered, layers which both Krystina and the reader have yet to be able to peel back. Krystina was the best part of this story. She's strong, smart and loving and not afraid to stand up for herself and ask questions. Their chemistry is so hot and steamy but not shallow. There is much more to be explored between the 2 of them. I was disappointed that the book ended and am looking forward to the continuation of their story. Please hurry with the next part!

Stone is a hot billionaire dominant, and this book will hook you from the first chapter. No, the first page!

This is literally one of those books that grabs you from the get go. It's huge, and I literally hung on every single word. It's hot! Sexy! Intriguing! The characters are so deep, and the author gives you a little bit at a time, and the interaction between Kristina (I'm not spelling her name right but that's okay) and Stone are so HOT! If you like books about BDSM mixed in with extremely hot romance and developing relationships with a super sexy billionaire you are going to be hooked!!! When will the next one be released?

I can't wait to continue this journey.

Reviews for Stepping Stone


A Complicated Love Story

"This story has the feeling of a love story but the secrets make things terrifying. It is part of a series but you could read it as a standalone but why would you do that? You will fall in love with Krystina and Alexanders story right from the first book!"
- Once Upon an Alpha


Dakota does not disappoint!

"I truly enjoyed the second book in the Stone series....I could not put this book down, just like the first one.
I loved how Alex slowly evolved himself to be what Krys needed in their relationship. She truly is his diamond in the ruff... Love finally makes its way through, and with some turn of events, I was left wondering if at times it was enough... I truly loved the Stone series and you will too!"

- Crystal's Book World


Simply Amazing...add it to your MUST READ list!

"Have you ever been so entranced by a man, that you can't think clearly when your near him? Krys has this problem with Alex. She wants to be strong and assertive and stick up for herself, but she just ends up looking at him and becoming a ball of hormones that will do anything he says.
I love these characters and truly can't get enough. These two have so much passion for each other, but have so much baggage that you hope they can find a way to move past it all. Can these two find a way? And where will it take them?"

​5 Sizzling, Pull-At-My-Heartstrings Stars!

"​I thoroughly enjoyed his character transition from one book to the next. As his feelings grew stronger for Kristina, I totally melted the moment he realizes that he's completely fallen for her. As he struggles to find balance between his feelings and who he is as a person, the author does a great job of running a readers emotions through the gauntlet! Alexander Stone is officially my new book boyfriend! I cant wait to see what Dakota Willink has in store for book 3!"

- Jilliebean, Goodreads Reviewer


Awesome Read!

"Alexander and Krystina are an absolute must read. Trust issues and relationship issues are continued in this book. I loved this book and am impatiently waiting for book 3 in this series. This author knows how to spin a good story and made it worth it to read her book. I would recommend this book to those readers who liked 50 Shades of Grey."

- Tracie's Book Review Blog


Great book...must read!

"Stepping Stone was a great as the first one. In this one you get to know more about Krystina and Alexander, and get to see their intense but emotionally filled love grow deeper. It was a great book that I had a hard time putting down... Can't wait to see what going she's going to come out with next."

- Carla, Amazon Reviewer


Fifty Shades of Grey doesn't compare!

"Oh my gosh, what can I say! I thought I loved the "Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy" Hurry up Dakota with book 3 because I have replaced the old with something new!!! Again Dakota has written a storyline with well defined characters that had such intense chemistry that they kept me turning the pages so fast I couldn't wait to see what was happening on the following pages... Dakota, you should consider making a movie from your trilogy after you finish book 3, your books are that great!!!!"

- Pat, Amazon Reviewer


​Loved the first in the series and I love this!

"And she does it again! I loved the first in this series and I love this one too. Get to know Alex a little better watch them fall deeper for each other. They're a good team and the passion and chemistry between them is off the charts. I love that he's playful as much as she's stubborn. Their dynamic made me smile many times."
