"A rock star with no rhythm is a man with no soul." - Stone Lockhart

As the lead singer of one of the hottest bands to hit the rock scene, f--ks are free, drugs come easy, and music is life.

For as long as Stone can remember, Willow has been his music - the notes that weave his soul together. His rhythm.

Until he threw her away.

All he has left is a handful of pills and a few lines of powder to make him forget her. And he tries, over and over.

Clean and ready to make things right, he's faced with the fact that Willow's moved on. She's not the same girl he cast aside. Willow's a woman sure about her purpose in life. Sure about who she's meant to love.

Stone may be lost without his rhythm, but Willow has found so much more.

Stoned by Mandi Beck was powerful, captivating and heart-wrenching. So damn powerful. It was emotional and angst-filled. The words touched me, even as they gutted me. It was real and raw. I loved it. Loved it even as parts of it broke me.

Stone’s journey was long, hard and not without victims. He loved Willow, but in the throes of his addiction, he lost himself and in turn, lost Willow. Willow was so strong. I loved her. Even as she questioned her decisions and choices, she stood her ground and finally stood up for herself and what mattered the most for her. I absolutely loved her.

I loved how Mandi gave us a story about addiction and the consequences that was real. It was not quick nor easy. I really have no words to describe how I felt listening to this book. The story consumed and destroyed me. It was a beautiful and powerful story. Mandi is an amazing writer that brings stories to life that captivate you. A must read. Emotional, heart-wrenching and completely captivating! Loved it!

The narrators, Kai Kennicott and Wen Ross nailed Stone and Willow for me. They brought the story to life and had me feeling all kinds of things.
