    Stone Cold is not your typical fluff romance, it has a lot of heart and shows that second chances do happen. This is my first contemporary romance book in a very long time so I went into it sort of hesitant because it’s not my first choice for genre, but it turned out to be a really good read and I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

This is my first contemporary romance book in a very long time so I went into it sort of hesitant because it’s not my first choice for genre, but it turned out to be a really good read and I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Stone Cold takes place in the city of music, specifically country music, Nashville. Drake Elliott is a music producer who has all the material possessions he could ever want but he only wants Cassidy…until a very big mistake tears them a part and he struggles to get over the incident. To be honest Drake is very hard to like to begin with. He doesn’t handle the situation well at all and some of the things he says are extremely hurtful, but it’s easy to see why he would rather lash out than even attempt forgiveness. However I found it really interesting to see how he struggled to move on and how he dealt with everything, and how over time he did grow as a person. Cassidy’s story is touching and I really liked her as a person. She’s very strong willed and has had a very rough past as she struggled with drug addiction and a broken family. The best thing about her is that she doesn’t accept the easiest way possible and she doesn’t want to live a life based off of someone else’s success, and just seeing how much she grows from the beginning of the book to the end is really amazing. The romance is not like the ones I’ve read before where two strangers come together slowly, overcome some obstacles and have a happily ever after. Instead we have a pre-existing relationship that is very broken due to trust issues and misunderstandings, and instead of seeing a simple reunion we get to see them grow as people and form a new and better relationship. I love that Cassidy is a strong woman who isn’t afraid to say she wants more of herself and that she needs to worry about that before she allows someone else into her life, and I love that she wasn’t always that way, that she had to build herself up and do things for herself. I also really like seeing Drake and Cassidy reconnect with family, even though those relationships have proven toxic in the past. Stone Cold not only focuses on the romantic relationship between two people, but also focuses on personal growth, second chances and forgiveness.

    Good premise So I really liked the premise of this story and it does deal with real life issues. But I felt that somethings were glossed over & almost everyone forgave everyone else super fast. Also, there was pretty much NO GROVELING done by the H!! I liked the characters, but don’t trust the writing well enough to buy the rest of the series.

    The best part of this book was that the main character does get control of her addiction plus she helps her mother gain control over alcohol. What a strong confident person this woman becomes— an encouraging story.

    I liked the character development though out the story. However, there was a lot of angst. At times too much in my mind. Not bad book overall.

    The story of a recovering addict who struggles to make the love of her life believe her. Well written. Well worth a re-read, too.

    Not generally my type of story but I think that the author worked hard on this book and that made it was worth reading. You can tell that Cheryl Douglas did here research before creating this seriously dysfunctional family and then describing Cassidy's fight to find who she really was and the sacrifices she made and the repercussions to her choices that led to her self discovery and happiness.

I am really glad that the author didn't gloss over anything or shorten this book in some way, it would have ruined it. Addiction is a hard thing to fight for everyone involved and a hard thing to watch a loved one go through and this book did a very wonderful job of portraying that. This book does have some error that needs be fixed, mostly missing words or words that don't belong in sentences for that I am only giving it four stars.

    I really really wanted to love this because I've really enjoyed the author's other two Nashville series. But I just don't really like these characters. I think the issue for me is there isn't enough backstory for me to understand how Cassidy and Drake really fell for each other and the relationship development prior to the Prologue. As it stands, the reader is sort of thrown into this storyline where Drake is just plain unlikeable. So his turnaround is difficult for me to buy into.

I like the "moral" of becoming more than your past. All the pieces here just don't entirely connect as smoothly as I would have liked. And I was more than a little disappointed at the end in reading the previews of future titles to see Katie and Lee won't get their HEA. Still, I have high hopes for the series as a whole since it appears some Nashville Nights characters will make appearances.

    I really enjoyed this gritty romance novel. The story was far deeper than I expected and it certainly pulled on the heartstrings. One night shattered Drake and Cassidy's romance. Drake walked away hating the two people he was closest too and vowed to make Cassidy's life living hell. Cassidy's life had changed beyond recognition, hitting rock bottom and being unable to move her music career forward she's struggling constantly to avoid homelessness.

    Stone cold is right. Drake is a stone cold man after his and Cassidy's break up. Of course there is more to the break up than meets the eye, but you will find out as this story goes along. Drake has blacklisted Cassidy who is trying to make it as a singer. But what happens when Cassidy needs help? This story is full of angst. I wanted to shake them and demand they settle their differences and get back together. I needed a few tissues with some of the material. Dual point of views. No Stone cold is right.

    Enjoyed having a strong female lead who proved that she could stand on her own two feet and rebound after an unfortunate encounter with her sister and future brother-in-law. It also showed we should never jump to conclusions because situations can be very different from how they appear. Cassie lived her life learning from past mistakes and never giving up on the future she imagined. Now cannot wait for the next in this series - December 2013 so I am told...

    Cheryl Douglas has done it again. Stone Cold was an amazing read. I couldn't put the book down. This is a great romance and fighting to get back a love one that walked out of your life. This book has revenge, betrayal, forgiving, and romance all wrapped into one awesome read. What a great story!! It was also nice to read about characters from Cheryl's previous books. Cheryl never disappoints, this is a must read

    This was a very interesting story with a twist and a strong heroine who didn't give up in the face of adversity. I really liked this book, but I've liked all of CD's books. I would've rated this 5 stars if there was a little more steam though. It was the only thing missing. Great read that you will really enjoy!

    Stone Cold This was an excellent book. It made me have a different perspective on rehab addicts. It was so important that when we've wronged a person to make amends. It was a book about restored relationships. The storyline was well developed. I loved how in the end everything came together. I would highly recommend this for others.

    I absolutely love Cheryl Douglas! Her writing captures my emotions right from the start and makes it impossible to put down! I LOVED Cassidy! Watching her change throughout the book was like watching a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. Even Drake grew throughout this book! The ending was one of my favorites yet! I can't wait for more in this series!

    I am on the fence with this book...not sure I will read any other books in this series... too much real life dysfunction for me... not that it wasn't well written too heavy for me. I also thought it was a bit much for Drake to go from hating Cassidy with every bone in his body to try around in a day... I get he never stopped loving her but come on..m

    The snot is still sniveling in my head from crying...this author is guilty of making me emotionally wrought for the life poor Cassiday has after Drake throws her out. First couple of chapters I agreed with him but as we get to see Cassiday and see her struggle with integrity and growth we are slammed by the reality of her poor life. great writing.

    I loved the book. It hooked me on the series. I had to know what happened with the other characters you met. I have since read book 2 and book 3. Cheryl makes such lovable characters you feel they are friends and you just want to keep up with their lives!

    Second Chances Second Chances A very heartbreaking and heartwarming story. It shows that a story can be told and be worth reading without the use of lots of vulgar language. Also that giving second chances are worth the effort in making life more enjoyable.

    This is my first book by this author, but I'm pretty sure it won't be my last. I enjoyed the story and thought the author did a really good job with character development. The ending was just okay to me, but I would definitely recommend this book.

    I absolutely loved this book. A lot of heartache in the beginning, and I did cry. But as always Cheryl keeps that book in my hand not being able to put it down until finished! I would highly recommend this book, as all others from Cheryl! :)

    The story did not do it for me. I strongly disliked both Cassidy and Drake. I usually enjoy Cheryl Douglas' books, so I am going to keep reading this series.
