Book Review : Stalemate by Lisa Suzanne

Posted on


Emme Ford loves her job as a bar promoter. She runs in the same circles as musicians and socialites, getting paid to party with them. She’s content with life just the way it is, and she has no interest in marriage, kids, or growing up. But what happens when the party’s over?

Axel Jones wants to marry Emme, but she denied his proposal. They both pretend it didn’t affect their relationship, but it did. A wedge divides them, and now they’re stuck in a stalemate. What do you do when only one person wants more?

Every now and then there are folks who have commitment issues, some are just commitment-phobes and others are just perfectly happy not defining the relationship. Usually its the guys who want to take their time when it comes to committing and defining the relationship but that doesn’t seem to be the problem with Axel. Axel wants to marry Emme, Axel wants a family and all that comes with a committed relationship. Emme on the other hand doesn’t know what she wants. All she knew is that she was having fun with Axel and that was that. Will Axel and Emme be able to get past their issues? I sure as heck felt like jumping into the book and telling Emme to snap out of it and tell Axel how she really felt!! I know you will enjoy reading this story and will be anxiously waiting for the next installment. I got so invested in this story that I am going to go back and read the first installment and learn all about Axel’s cousin Carter and Emme’s friend Courtney!!

For cafe owner Noelle, a smouldering billionaire and a paparazzi scandal were never on the menu…

Hunter Maxwell’s heart and pockets are lined in gold – but his soul is steeped in frustration. Even a billion dollars can’t buy him the love he craves. A wild, genius entrepreneur with a bad-boy reputation that threatens his ambition to transform the education system of the country.

He needs a solution. He needs a wife.

Noelle knows how hard life can be – her dead-beat ex landed himself in jail, leaving her a single mum, struggling to keep her delicatessen afloat with the immigration department hot on her heels. It seems her chance for love would be swept away under the worry of life one step ahead of deportation. Time is running out.

She’d do anything to stay. Even marry.

An unlocked door.

A chance meeting that ignites a whirlwind romance between them.

From spices and warm baked bread to twisted bedsheets and hot, ravishing nights of desire, both of their lives are changed forever. A fiery passion carries them from the glittering heights of government society back to the unjust realities of life on the streets of New York.

But when the dreams they chase begin to shatter around them, will the fight become too much to bear? Can their love survive the media storm that threatens to tear them apart?

Can love, truly, conquer all?

“This sexy rollercoaster of love and scandal in New York will leave you hungry for more! Conquered is a standalone novel, with gritty undertones and a super-sweet climax. Don’t miss it!”

About the Author:

Hi, I am Amanda Horton. I am a Boston native girl now living in London. I have a bachelors degree from Boston University and now spend my time traveling the world and writing Romances.

My love for romantic writing started at an early age, when I could not think of anything better to do than read classics like Pride & Prejudice, Gone with the Wind, Norwegian Wood.. I enjoy my work because it helps my readers entertain themselves, and forget the stress of the real world for some time.

Apart from writing, i love to travel. My travels are dear as they have shaped the life philosophy: Life should not be taken seriously. The journey is life not any destination and the journey is full of surprises, experiences and opportunities. I must be always curious & never over analyze.
