    5 Stars!!! It was just Stone Jacobs. A man I’d known six years. A man I’d found to be kind, charming, easy-going, and well, pretty much perfect. Three dates with a friend. No problem, right? If you love a good slow-burn romance, a friends to lovers storyline, and a somewhat suspenseful story, Three Dates will be the perfect book for you. This book pulled me in from the very beginning.

A man I’d found to be kind, charming, easy-going, and well, pretty much perfect. Three dates with a friend. No problem, right? If you love a good slow-burn romance, a friends to lovers storyline, and a somewhat suspenseful story, Three Dates will be the perfect book for you. This book pulled me in from the very beginning. I was so invested in Muriella and Stone’s story. Muriella has been through so much in her life. Because of this, she’s sworn off men for good. But Stone Jacobs is not your average man. Stone and Muriella have been friends for years. In those years of friendship, Stone has only wanted Muriella. He’s gotten her to agree to three dates. Three dates to prove to her that she can trust him, that they belong together, and that’s he’s worth the risk. Stone is a gentleman. He’s a family man, respectful, and shows Muriella what it could be like to be loved and cherished by a man who cares for her. Muriella has a lot of demons from her past. She doesn’t feel whole, and until she does, she doesn’t feel like she can ever let anyone in. Stone is determined to do anything he has to to change her mind. He sees Muriella, truly sees her and knows she isn’t broken. She’s perfect just the way she is. “You deserve a whole person.” Her voice was a plea for me to understand. She didn’t get that I saw her, who she really was. “I’m looking at one.” Stone and Muriella are amazing characters. I honestly couldn't tell you which one I loved more. Stone is a great man. Patient, understanding, and unwavering in his love. He had a heart of gold and was so damn swoony. I loved Muriella’s strength. She was sweet, gentle, and yet so very strong. She’s overcome so much from her past and the fact that she could learn to love and trust Stone just proves how strong she really is. These two have so much of a connection and chemistry, but their friendship is really the backbone of their relationship and the trust that Muriella had in Stone because of this friendship is the reason their love was able to grow and thrive. Three Dates is such a fantastic read. The writing was strong, the characters well developed, and I loved everything about it. Stone and Muriella are unforgettable and their story will stay with me. The ending had me crying happy tears and I can’t recommend this book enough to all lovers of romance! “As long as I have you, I have everything.”

What would happen if I let him in?-Muriella I am just loving this series! Three Dates by Grahame Claire, is the 2nd book in the Paths to love series, and it was one hell of a read. When I read It's not over, the 1st book in the series, I fell in love with Stone and Muriella. I couldn't wait to read their book. I was a little worried that Stone and Muriella's book wouldn't live up to book 1. I was wrong! It surpassed it and became my favorite read of the series so far! Which truly shocked me as I love me some Daniel and Viv! This read was just so emotionally charged and raw! I could feel their pain, their fear, and their love. It gave me all the feels, and when I finished it I had a huge smile on my face. “I’m not doing this.” “Don’t hide from me.” “Isn’t it enough I told you how you make me feel?!” I shouted. “I’m trying. What more do you want from me?” “I want it all.”-Muriella and Stone Stone was amazing. He was so sexy with all his southern charm, manners, and his deep respect for women. He was understanding, supportive, and completely devoted to Muriella. He knew Muriella's past was ugly and dark so he let her lead the way. He gave her control and respected her boundaries. I loved how Stone knew Muriella was his from the moment they met and while he waited 6 years for her, he didn't see other women. There was no one for him but Muriella and he was loyal. He fought for Muriella, fought her past demons, and helped her heal. My heart broke for Muriella and all she suffered. At the same time I was in awe of her bravery. Muriella's back story was dark, brutal, and left her deeply scarred. Her fears were completely understandable. That kind of past would have broke anyone. Muriella started the book closed off, damaged, and living a shell of a life, and she ended it free, happy and healing. Muriella fought through the pain, flashbacks, and fear to get the life she truly wanted. Muriella grew so much in this book. She completely transform. “And it’s not right for you to hide from me, either. We’re together now, except you aren’t all the way with me.” “I am!” she shouted. “But I won’t let my past touch you.” “It already has.” I softened my tone, desperate to make her understand. “I told you I want it all. Good. Bad. Ugly.” -Stone and Muriella Muriella and Stones relationship was a slow burn. Muriella had a lot of demons to overcome, and that took time. I love that the authors kept it real. Pain isn't healed over night with some awesome sex. Muriella's struggles felt so real. Stone's too. He had to navigate carefully to get the woman he loved. When they got together it was beautiful and worth the wait. They fought so hard to be together and their connection was strong. Not only was Muriella and Stone great I fell hard for some of the secondary characters too. Stone's sister Mulaney and Easton the guy they grew up with . I don't know if they will end up a couple, but there was a spark there that had me hoping! Then there was Muriella's brother Carlos. OMG for a character that didn't have a ton of page time he made a huge impact. I want more Carlos so bad. He just sounded so sexy, intriguing, and a bit dark, but with a core of honor. I hope Carlos gets his own book. This read had so much meat to it. Tons of build up, and depth. And that ending omg so sweet. Three Dates was a great read. I can't wait to see what happens next in the Paths to Love Series. “I’m in awe of you. The woman you are. The heart that’s bigger than anyone else’s I know. You had me from the first second I saw you, and every single day, I only want more. There isn’t a thing in the world that will ever change that.” -Stone

Muriella was the star of this book though, and I adored her. After going through so many hard times in life, Muriella had pretty much resigned herself to being alone forever. And she was fine with that since she had her friends with her. But after six years, Stone is done with just friendship between them and he's made her promise to give him three dates to change her mind. Stone may be a gentleman, but this cowboy is done letting Muriella hide behind her past and he's determined to make her see that they belong together. I couldn't get enough of these characters together and they honestly went above and beyond what I was expecting from them. Muriella showed her true strength in this story and seeing how confident she became was the highlight of the book. It was amazing to watch her grow into this strong, beautiful woman under the watchful eye of Stone. He was a true hero, who I loved, but mostly because he would give Muriella little nudges in the right direction but for the most part he just sat back and let her find her own way. I loved that about him and he had me swooning many times throughout this book. Overall, Three Dates is passionate, intriguing, and unforgettable. I've already read this book twice and it's not enough, so I know I'll be re-reading many times in the future. And I definitely recommend it for any romance reader out there.

(ARC provided by author) Muriella Morales lives in New York City, and has created the life she wants including her own family with friends Daniel & Vivian. They have become her entire world. They were the only two people she let into her life until a gorgeous, movie star from Texas named Stone Jacobs joined their circle of friends. Muriella had kept Stone at a comfortable distance for the past six years. She liked her life and didn't like change. She was all about being in control, and he made her feel like she had none when he was near. He made her feel off balance and forced her to step out of her comfort zone when he finally found a way to get her to go out with him. She didn't date, and thought falling in love wasn't part of her destiny, but she couldn't deny there was a part of her that wanted him. He was the most beautiful thing she'd ever seen, and stirred an unfamiliar part of herself. As much as she said they were just friends, he was becoming more than that in her heart. When he was around she felt like she was in uncharted territory without a map. Stone Jacobs was a famous celebrity actor who could have any woman in the world, except the one he truly wanted. He wanted a life with Muriella, and was prepared to pursue her. It was time to step out of the friend zone and go after what he wanted. He'd belonged to her since the day they met, and this was his chance to convince her they were meant to be. He'd found something she couldn't pass up, and negotiated three dates with her. -Stone made me nervous because I felt him to my core. It was as if I’d known him my entire life. -My feelings for her were solid. I’d always been sure of them. -She was the woman I’d hoped to find all my life. -“When I’m with you, when I think about you, life makes sense.” -“Whether you want me or not, I’m yours. I always will be.” With each date Stone was slowly breaking down her walls, and helping her let go. He stripped her defenses layer by layer and made her feel safe and cherished. In his arms everything felt right, but her fears and doubts still crept up between them. She didn't know how to obliterate them, but he made her want to try. She craved him, and finally gave in to the feelings she'd denied for far too long. Even though she was worried the past would catch up with her, he made her happy, and his effect on her was powerful. Could Muriella put her faith in Stone and believe in forever? I've been really looking forward to this story, and more of Stone. He's a thoughtful, kind, charming, easy going cowboy with a heart of gold who is easy to love. He's swoony book boyfriend perfection! This was a beautiful romance about finding your soulmate, and the healing power of love. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more in the series! ***NOW AVAILABLE*** https://amzn.to/2QeR3C1

From the moment you start reading their story, you can’t help but be hooked on the two of them. Muriella has never been on a date and if she had it her way, she never would. However, as a favor to her bff 4 Slow Burn Stars! When I heard that Stone & Muriella were getting their own story, I gotta tell you, I was over the moon. I fell in love with these two in It’s Not Over and man, was I dying for more!! Stone & Muriella’s story took me on one heck of a ride with so many emotions and feels. From the moment you start reading their story, you can’t help but be hooked on the two of them. Muriella has never been on a date and if she had it her way, she never would. However, as a favor to her bff, she agrees to three dates with the man that’s been starring in her dreams. She’s always wanted more from Stone and can’t deny the chemistry between the two of them, but secrets from her past will try to keep Stone at bay. She desperately tries to keep Stone at arms lengths, but Stone is a determined man and isn’t afraid to go after what he wants. And what he wants is Muriella….. I love, love, loved Stone and Muriella’s story. It was a beautiful friends to lovers romance with a great slow burn. Now, if you know me, then you know I’m not normally a fan of the slow burn. But, man, with these two. I couldn’t have asked for a better way for their romance to go. Stone and Muriella have fought their connection for so long. Each having their own demons to overcome. And I loved that they had to make these three dates happen. It took them both out of their comfort zone and made them face those demons of the past. Stone is the guy that you just can’t help but fall in love with. He was sexy and sweet. Totally devoted to those who were important in his life. He was respectful of Muriella’s fears and didn’t let her past define her. He was so supportive of her and was just the light that she needed in her life. If anyone was going to show Muriella that there was good in this world, I am so glad that person was Stone. He was so loving and wasn’t afraid to fight for the woman he wanted. And that was just the guy that Muriella needed. She needed someone who was patient and understanding. Someone that was going to fight her demons and not leave when things got tough. Someone that wouldn’t rush her and would just love her no matter what. And thanks to Stone, Muriella didn’t give up. He showed her that life was worth living and that there really are good people in this world. And Muriella…she had so much to give. I loved her bravery and how she stepped out of her comfort zone with Stone. These two kept me glued to the pages and I just couldn’t wait to see how their story was going to end. Three Dates was a terrific read from beginning to end. It is a slow burning friends to lovers romance. It’s got just the right amount of romance, drama and suspense. This book made me fall in love. It brought tears to my eyes and in the end, it left me with a big smile on my face. I really enjoyed getting lost in Stone & Muriella’s story and can not wait to see what this author has in store for us next. *I was provided an ARC copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review*

    I’ve never been on a date. <--- please for the love of GOD do not tell me that this heroine is a 36-year-old virgin?? I really hope that isn't the case, but who in the world reaches the age of 36 without having gone on at least ONE date??!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best!

    "In Stone's arms, the rightness of being there, it became clear the past had ruled me. I was the only one with the power to end that." I can say with all honesty that I did not think I coud love this book more than book one, It's Not Over, but the author(s) blew this one so far out of the stratosphere that my heart just couldn't help but fall for it. Muriella will forever be haunted by her past, a past so horrrific she will not let it taint someone else's life especially Stone Jacobs.

I feared I'd hurt him. I feared getting lost. I feared I'd need him too much." Ever since Stone became friends with her through Daniel he knew that he had found someone special. No matter how long the wait he was determined to gain her trust and show her the family she could have. "I don't want you to be afraid. Not with me, I want to be your safe place." This book has all the feels!!!! Your heart will feel like it has gone through an emotional wringer before you finally get to the end. And that ending. Oh what a beautiful ending it was indeed. "Choice. It was mine, and he gave that to me."

    Three Dates had potential to be a great love story, in the end it was just that. But for me getting to that point was long and drawn out.

His granddaddy told him he would know when he found the woman he would love forever. And he has waited patiently for Muriella. Their romance is a slow burn, and I think it was written very well keeping me guessing what was to happen next.

Muriella’s story is not for the faint of heart, but it’s worth reading every single word. In Stone, she finds the healing she so needs and deserves. And I was at the edge of my seat rooting for her to find it. This book broke my heart and put it back together. Full and content for having read such a marvelous story. It will stay with me. And I’m sure I’ll reread it. I can not recommend this book enough.

I had no doubt that I would love this book after reading It's Not Over (Paths to Love #1), but I had no idea that it would touch me in such a profound way. Stone is the perfect book boyfriend-swoony, sexy and sweet, but it's his heart, his soul, his belief in family and commitment that will break your heart and at the same time make you smile. I am so invested in these characters--loved that Daniel and Vivian didn't just make appearances, but were a huge part in the storyline, not to mention several new characters that I'm hoping (fingers crossed) we get their stories as well. The words flow so easily and seamlessly that I didn't even realize I had been reading for hours. And then I didn't want it to end because I didn't want to let go of these newfound friends. Love comes in all forms--what a beautiful message this book portrays. Do yourself a favor and read Stone and Muriella's beautiful, heartbreaking, heartwarming and profound story--you won't be sorry. I wish I could give it 10+ stars!

    One of the top books I have read! I loved Muriella & Stone in It’s Not Over and I was so happy that they got to tell their story. Stone & Muriella’s journey was not an easy one, but so worth it. There were some amazing twists and turns that I didn’t see coming. This book kept me on the edge! I had to find out what was going to happen and where it would lead.

Stone was patient, protective, and all around sweet guy. I loved watching the relationship between Muriella & Stone progress to more. Never easy between these two, but definitely worth it. I can’t wait for Mulaney’s story! I voluntarily reviewed this book.

    Loved this book. If you read it's not over..then you have met both Stone and Muriella. This book is a stand-alone, so you don't have to read book 1 (but you should 🤗). Muriella has some dark secrets that we don't know about, but Stone is there for her from the get go. He has been in love with her for a very long time, and she secretly has loved him as well. However, she is scared and feels unworthy of letting anyone love her, but Stone shows her how true love is supposed to be. With some surpris Loved this book.

    LOVE LOVE LOVED this book! This is book 2 in the series and picks up near the end of book 1. This is Muriella and Stone's book and boy did I love it! I knew these two belonged together when reading them in book 1 but wondered how Muriella would ever be open enough with all of her past haunting her. Not easy but Stone was up to the job. LOVE LOVE LOVED this book! I read an ARC and am voluntarily leaving my review.

Grahame Claire is a master story teller. She (is it a "she"?) not only articulates in her storytelling, she weaves a complicated story line with so much depth, if you plunged off the cliff you wouldn’t reach the bottom, and yet, she makes it all so simple to follow. Three Dates……what can possibly happen in just three simple dates? Well my friends that is the story which makes this book so special! We meet Muriella Morales in the first Paths to Love book, It’s Not Over. Rescued by Daniel ten years earlier as a young girl, he takes her in, protects her and makes her his family. And when he meets the love of his life, Vivian, she embraces Muriella as well….as a sister, a long lost friend, a family member that they can never be without. Now we move on to Muriella’s story (after learning about Daniel and Vivian)……and that’s where Three Dates begins…..exactly where It’s Not Over ends. But to understand Muriella’s story you have to understand her past….complicated, tragic……and the man that has loved her for the past 6 years. Stone Jacobs. Tall, handsome, Hollywood movie star, down to earth Texan, close friend of Daniel and Vivian, he has loved Muriella since the moment he met her…..but she was fragile, broken and Jacob didn’t know why….or how. So he took his time, and I mean he took his time…..did I mention “patience extraordinaire” is his middle name??? He carefully “woos” Muriella and through circumstances of his design, he now has three dates with her. Three Dates to prove his love and the kind of man he is…..the only kind of man that Muriella can truly trust with her broken soul. The only kind of man she can truly love. The only kind of man she knows she will be loved in return, she will be cherished. The only kind of man that will keep her safe and give her a family she truly deserves. But Muriella has a problem. She feels she is damaged and undeserving. She fights Stone at every turn. She is not cut out to date. Love is not in the cards for Muriella. And Stone?? He will do anything and everything he can to win her, to convince her, to assure her, she is worthy of not only his love, but her own love to love herself as well. A roller coaster ride?? Yes!! A ride Grahame Claire excels at? YES!!! A ride a reader will not only enjoy, but whoop for joy!! YOU BET!!! This is a book that can’t be put down….a book that shouldn’t be put down!!! A book that not only has the romance we all crave for, but a love that excels and a story-line we can’t imagine not having read, a book that makes us crave the next book in this series…..are you hearing me Grahame??? I’m ready for the next book!!!! An Advanced Reader Copy was graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review. For more Reviews, Free E-books and Giveaways

    Oh, God ... I'm so charged with emotions that I don’t know what to do with myself ... Grahame Claire bared me of all my feelings to slowly fill my heart from scratch. Get ready for an emotional ride! Muriella's past is filled with huge suffering. The woman is broken and introverted. The only people she allows to get close to her are her closest friends - Daniel and Vivian (heroes of the previous part of the series). With time another person joined this group- Stone Jacobs who’s a movie star from Oh, God ... I'm so charged with emotions that I don’t know what to do with myself ... Grahame Claire bared me of all my feelings to slowly fill my heart from scratch. Get ready for an emotional ride! Muriella's past is filled with huge suffering. The woman is broken and introverted. The only people she allows to get close to her are her closest friends - Daniel and Vivian (heroes of the previous part of the series). With time another person joined this group- Stone Jacobs who’s a movie star from Texas. For 6 years, the man patiently wore the title of Muriella’s friend, even though he wanted her from the first meeting. Muriella kept him at arms lenght for all these years to spare them suffering. However, Stone has had enough of waiting, and with a little blackmail he forces Muriella to agree to three dates, during which Stone has to show her that they are meant for each other. And with this begins the process of demolishing the walls with which our heroine surrounded herself. Watching the change that took place in Muriella was simply amazing! Stone was exactly what our heroine needed. Under his wings, Muriella grew in strength and gained confidence. And Stone... *sigh* A male ideal! Although he’s an amazingly handsome actor who could have every woman with a fingers snap, he waited patiently for Murriela for 6 YEARS to give him a chance. His love for her is so deep and unconditional. The man is full of patience. There were moments when I wanted to jump into the book and shake the heroine, yelling, "wake the hell up, because I'll steal him from you!". I understand that Muriella experienced a terrible trauma, but sometimes I had the impression that the woman exaggerates with her behavior ... Three Dates is a really beautiful story. The authors miraculously illustrated overcoming fears and traumatic experiences. They also showed us that if we are patient, we are able to achieve the intended goal. This book fits perfectly into the categories "from friends to lovers" and "slow burn". It’s charged with emotions to the brim and restores the hope that a happy ending is waiting for everyone. I highly recommend this book! *ARC received for an honest review.

    Stone and Muriella. This book really drew me in, I was captivated from the beginning. I would advise reading book 1 first as this book is dated after the events of that book have taken place and we meet Stone in that book and Muriella, as she is a close friend of Daniel and Vivian. It's a slow burn in the sense that they have known each other for 6 years and at the start of the book they are going on the the first of the three dates she promised him from book 1. I loved Stone. He is totally enchante Stone and Muriella. This book really drew me in, I was captivated from the beginning.

He is totally enchanted with Muriella. Muriella has obviously had a traumatic past and this is not revealed straight away. It is dual POV. Flashbacks to 6 years ago when Stone first became friends with the trio. M has serious trauma issues and I've got to say Stone really had so much patience with her. As a reader I found her a bit frustrating at times, as Stone is so amazing and we don't know what has happened to her so when she rejects him, is snarky or down right rude it hurts him but he sticks with her, even though he doesn't know her past at the time either. Even though their friendship spans 6 years and she has made it hard for him to progress much he hasn't been with another woman since they met. Even before that he was no manwhore. He says “I’ve only been with three women. There wasn’t a single one I didn’t think there was at least the possibility of a future with.” I leaned back against the railing. “I’m like an old loyal dog. I don’t like change. I have no interest in leaving behind a sting of women" This is even though he is an actor and has plenty of opportunities. M can't bear to be touched and has never had a date as she has ruled out any kind of future with anyone else. It has a series subject matter in the background but there is humour. Plenty of previous couple as their relationship develops. HEA. Epilogue. Secondary characters with breadcrumbs dropped for future books.

Three Dates is the second book in the Paths to Love series and it's freakin' fantastic. The unconditional love between Stone and Muriella is truly inspiring to behold. Muriella's past is a nightmare of constant pain and trauma that has caused her to live in a world of fear that she'll be discovered by her monster of a father in Nicaragua. She pushes everyone except Daniel and Vivian (previously introduced in It's Not Over) and has relegated Stone to the friend zone for the past 6 years in order to spare them both the pain of being together. Stone has patiently waited 6 years for the woman he loves to let him into her heart, but whatever Muriella is hiding continues to keep them apart. Well he's had enough and uses his agreement to help Vivan win Daniel back from It's Not Over to get Muriella to agree to 3 dates. Now that she's agreed he's got 3 chances to convince her that they belong together and she's more capable than she believes is possible. He pulls out all the stops because he knew from the moment they met that she was the one for him, but can Muriella ever loosen the reigns enough to let him in fully? Their struggle to overcome Muriella's past and create a beautiful future is absolutely incredible to watch. Stone's endless patience and support of Muriella will touch your very soul. I love Grahame Claire's writing and ability to capture the reader from the first word to the very last. I highly recommend this novel to anyone searching for their next Book Boyfriend.

    I received a copy of this book from the publisher/author to review for Stephanie's Book Reports. Muriella has never been on a date. and she intended to keep it that way. But to save her best friend's relationship, she agreed to three with the man she secretly longs for. He doesn't know why they can't be. That chancing a relationship would bring everything crashing down around them. Whatever he makes her feel is irrelevant. Wherever he things this my lead he is so very wrong. Three dates.

That is all she has to survive before she can put him back where he belongs....at arms length. Stone though has waited six years for her. Now he has three shots to convince her what he has known all along. They belong together. Despite all of his determination, each new revelation seems to pull them apart. With everything stacked against them, they man not even make it to date three, let alone forever. Muriella has never been on a date. She also has a dark past that only two people know about. Because of this horrific past she lets no one near her. In fact she only really has two close friends in Daniel and Vivian. This is the only way that Murilla is able to function, to keep as few people close to her as possible. My heart broke for her. However when Stone Jacobs who was accepted into Daniels inner circle some years ago he met Muriella. and he knew that she was the one right away. However he is an actor and famous and Muriella has no desire to get anywhere near her. However he is not above blackmailing Muriella into three dates and his opportunity to prove to her that they belong together. What follows is a story that you guys are going to love. It keeps you turning the pages as fast as you can and loving every second of it. I loved too that their is some serious southern courting going on in this book. As a southern girl myself I totally swooned probably way to many times.

    Three Dates is book 2 in the Paths To Love series.

There are heartwarming wonderful moments and then there is heartbreak, danger, drama and suspense. My heart was in my throat for so much of this story. Stone was such an amazing character in the way that he was patient and supportive in his goal to get Muriella to give him a chance. Muriella is a strong character that is doing her best to move on from her past and overcome her fears. This is a must read book and series for sure! You will not be disappointed. - By Alisa

Stone himself has an interesting family in Texas that he has mentioned Muriella to them. It's an emotional story with the main characters. But with all members there is a close knit family. There's humor, intrigue, danger, the unknown and an evolution aspect woven so well within the story line. Stone and Muriella have interesting times with each. Nothing is easy for Stone but the gentleman he was raised to be, he treats her with kid gloves. Perfect book 2 of Paths to Love. Definitely recommend this book as well as book 1. You won't be disappointed. Very well written. I voluntarily chose to review an advanced copy of this book.
