Publisher's Summary

It was supposed to be one letter. One time....

Cassidy Thatcher has just been fired. In an attempt to salvage her life, she flees to New York City to rebuild her career. Desperate for hope, she passes her time writing love letters to her fiance in the US Navy, but the Big Apple has other plans.

Grayson Daniels has a brilliant mind but is not so brilliant when it comes to relationships. After being asked to assist the Navy with nuclear research, he finds himself aboard an aircraft carrier where he accidentally intercepts a letter not meant for him. Cassidy's words enthrall him...but what started as an innocent fascination soon becomes an uncontrollable desire.

When Grayson learns of Cassidy's financial problems, he manipulates matters into his own hands. And when Cassidy's relationship with her fiance begins to crumble, Grayson is there to pick up the pieces, reminding her that love doesn't always have to be a sacrifice.

His secret isn't safe for long. Can a foundation be reconstructed on stolen words? Or will Cassidy mark their romance return to sender?

Um WTH this story was awful

Narration was okay but this story was so weird. The ending was lame, but worst of all the side stories were too random and not important to the story at all. This is like a bunch of middle schoolers got together to write an unromance. Never again from this author!

Sweet and Sexy

The universe grants a serendipitous encounter for two people who need to find each other. Grayson, the hunky, awkward around women science guy, and Cassidy; the sweet, people pleaser young woman who has given up her own dreams of becoming an archeologist to appease her boyfriend, currently in the navy.

Is it wrong to break the law, if you know it’s the right thing to do? Grayson learns the real woman of his desires through letters not belonging to him. He should return them to the rightful owner. But when he knows Cassidy’s boyfriend does not deserve her, he does what the universe has challenged him to do. Find this woman.

Cassidy has once again found herself lead down a path, ​not of her chosen will; move to New York and take care of her childhood friend and cousin, Mya. But when threatened with no place to live, fate steps in and Cassidy finds work with a man that will connect her to Grayson.

Grayson’s nuclear project on the Navy carrier he was assigned is now complete, and life back at the High Tower has not held up to his expectations. But when he discovers the reasons, he learns the face behind the Stolen Words. The words etched on his heart.

Both Grayson and Cassidy deal with terrible guilt, living behind borders not allowing them their real happiness. Grayson and Cassidy learn that all the things that happen in space and time, there’s no way that one instant could have possibly been their own doing. Until that one serendipitous moment when the wrong letter was put into the right hand.

Stolen Words is a love story endured with mystery, sweetness, charming moments with great characters you’ll fall in love with. Mya is the cousin with chutzpa every girl needs in her life. And an ending that will leave you wanting more of Grayson and Cassidy, now that fate has brought them together. I highly recommend this book by India Caedmon.

India Caedmon is a new-to-me author who has impressed me with style, charm, drive, and personality. In a podcast, (Non-De Plum) Indie describes some of her pet peeves. The Hero is always HOT! The Heroin is always HOT! This does get annoying. So, who better to narrate this book than Sebastian York. The never seen Unicorn. With Sebby’s read-to-me-please-sexy voice, we are able to visualize the perfect man for us. Whatever he may look like.

CJ Bloom was the perfect Cassidy. With her sweet and youthful voice, I could see the young, untouched, people pleaser of a woman. That soft and innocent voice, yet sweetly sexy.
I'm Looking forward to High Tower #2

Sebastian York

The only good thing about this story... Sebastian York. Thats about it. The rest was dull and took way too long to get to a crappy ending.

Debut Novel has Stolen my Heart!

As a debut romance novel, Stolen Words is a breath of fresh air with original writing and a captivating story line. The author has an eloquent mastery of the English language which she uses to paint the details of the story into the readers’ mind. The story comes alive through the vivid descriptions of each scene. The description of what it is like being on a U.S. aircraft carrier was right-on! The characters are real, believable and fallible, some with endearing traits and some with toxic attributes. The author knows we have all encountered similar people which makes the novel so believable. Just when you think you have the book figured out, she turns the story in a different direction leaving the reader thinking, “well, I didn’t see that one coming!” This makes the novel fresh, entertaining and satisfying! If this is the author’s debut novel, I am thrilled to know there will be more novels in the future. She is just beginning and I can’t wait to see her writing skills grow stronger over time as she becomes a master storyteller.

Even Sebastian York couldn't save the ending

I liked the fresh idea for the plot but it left way too much undone at the end and made way to much out of the mail issue. Horribly disappointing ending..... felt very undone. First book of hers, not sure if I will do another but maybe.

Not worth listening

The story was a mess, it's not worth listening. There were many times I wanted to stop listening, but I've always enjoyed listening to Sebastian York. The story was frustrating, and made the female character weak, and annoying. It wasn't even a good love story, let along captivating... One of the worst stories I have listened to.

I loved it

I’m not sure how to word it. It’s not as if the story was gripping or exciting.. it just.. was. The characters stories were interesting, their lives. The progression. I kinda wish it were longer so I could see more of how Greyson and Cassidy got along. I also wanted Kyle to suffer a bit more but I’m a sadist. I suppose him having to live with himself if punishment enough.

I had 0 issues with either narrator. They both contributed to the enjoyment and flow of the novel.

I will certainly be looking into more of India’s writing

Sebastian is the Best

This is different than the usual dime store romance. At least as far as the characters and setup goes. Neither lead is ultra rich or all powerful. They both have some big flaws. The story asks you to believe some pretty preposterous notions. Cassidy is 27 going on 13 and she really did just fall off a turnip truck. Yet, she holds her own ground right alongside esteemed scholars. Not only is she an interior designer but she is also the architect, general
Contractor, demo and construction crew. With zero experience. I know this is fiction and all, but the probability and believability of the main plot line really is less than zero. Lots of eye rolls here but it’s Sebastian York. He is worth suffering the illogical failures and downright condescending stupidity. Well duh.

Disappointing

Even a great narrator can't rescue a story with a lacklustre story and insipid lead characters. I have to care and feel invested in what happens to the characters, but when they are essentially spineless and have few redeeming emotions or character traits, its difficult.
Usually happy to give goid ratings, I just can't with this. Despite Mr Yorks excellent performance (as ever), this one was a waste of a credit.

I struggled to stay focused!

It was the initial summary of the storyline that drew me in. No, that's not entirely true. It was Sebastian York first...then the storyline. His perfect narration along with C.J. Bloom, who did well with her character is the reason why I've rated the 'Performance' part of this review a 5 out of 5.

The 'Overall' and 'Story' parts of this review, I'm afraid I could only muster up a 2 out of 5 for each. I felt the story drifted off a bit to the point where I struggled to stay focused,

As for the 'epilogue', I waited for Mr York's voice to say "another epilogue" but alas, it wasn't to be. It took me a few minutes before I realised it was The End! I guess there's nothing in the rule books to specify how long an epilogue should be. Perhaps the writer wanted the reader (listener) to picture their own extra HEA. So I did! Thanks!
