Title: Stone Walls
Author: A.M. Madden
Release Date: March 3rd, 2015
Benjamin Stone has an unrealistic determination to rid the streets of New York from any and all drug dealing scum. That determination quickly moves him and his partner, Rob Withers, up the ranks to Senior Narcotics Agents within their precinct. A new case assisting the FBI has Ben facing the ghosts of his past. Those same ghosts are the very reason he moved to New York to become a cop.
Ella Parker is bright, beautiful, kind, and severely damaged as a result of one tragic night in her past. Having lived an idealistic life, that horrific night sent her pretty castle of cards crumbling down. Forced to start over, she leans on her best friend, Andrea Hensen, to help her move on. With Andrea’s help, Ella quickly settles into her new life in New York City. It’s a safe and comfortable existence, albeit very boring.
Their paths may have never crossed, if it hadn’t been for their meddling best friends. Rob and Andrea believe that Ben and Ella are soul mates that were meant to be together, a perfect match. There’s one slight problem. Ben and Ella want no part of this matchmaking scheme. Funny thing about fate, it’s inevitable.
Or is it?
Can a truth cause the possibility of a happily ever after to crash and burn? Ben and Ella learn that sometimes truth isn’t the best answer. Sometimes ignorance is most definitely bliss.

By now, you probably know that A.M. Madden is one of my favorite authors and I will read anything she writes. That's why I was extremely happy when I got the chance to BETA read this awesome story. It is definitely different from the previous books written by A.M. Madden but it is still a page turner. The suspense reminded me a little bit of Backstage but this story is even more breath-catching. The book is full of danger and and at the same time it is very masterfully entwined with heartbreaking, loving, tender and hot moments.
Both, Ben and Ella’s stories are so heartbreaking. They both lost their innocence in the worst way possible and I have to say that that brought tears to my eyes on more than one occasion. I fell in love with both characters pretty much from the beginning. I loved their chemistry and interactions. It was so fun to read how stubborn both of them were. At the same time it was really obvious that they were meant for each other. With their somewhat similar pasts, I think they were the best to understand the demons each one of them was plagued with.
I also loved the side characters. Rob and Andrea were just hilarious. There are few side characters, whose story I would love to read in future books. I would definitely love to revisit the characters in future books :) I just fell in love with them :)
In a few words, the book is awesome and I definitely recommend it to everyone who loves an amazing romantic story entwined with thriller and suspense elements. The book can quite easily pass as a thriller with romantic elements (or the opposite :D). So prepare your #oneclick finger and pre-order this awesome story. It's simply a must read :)
