I can hardly put into words how much I love this book, but I will try! First off the cover is A-mazing, and the writing is gripping and captivates you from the first line! You simply have to read this book! It is amazing from cover to cover, and it is on my re-read soon list for sure! Thanks Helena, for such a powerful gripping story!

  Review by Kathy Mac Reviews

Scenes from Adelaide Road is a heartwarming and very enjoyable story that will bring tears to your eyes but also bring a smile to your face. I would recommend this story to any reader who wants to see love prevail and the good guys win. I connected easily with the author’s narrative and was pulled into the story from the beginning. A remarkable book that takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster of highs and lows but well worth the ride.

  Review by Diverse Reader

I’ve read many of Helena's works and have never been disappointed. I’ve always felt like I just experienced something extraordinary and with Scenes from Adelaide Road that feeling still stands. This is a breathtaking story. One that brings a secret past to a hopeful future. My heart wept for Lennart. For his tragic life growing up to discovering something I felt had he known, his entire upbringing would have been better. He’d have felt the love he so desperately deserved. Then there’s Aiden. Oh I love that man. He is an anchor for Lennart and you just kind of cling to him right along with Lennart. Now this story isn’t all self-discovery and finding love. Lennart and Aiden have a fight on their hands and it gets so ugly my heart broke and rage flared as I turned the pages. This story has a lot to it. Love, power, bliss, hatred, discovery, and relief. This is an absolute must read by all!

  Review by MM Good Book Reviews

Scenes from Adelaide Road is a fantastic book... Lennart is a strong character that I think is universally relatable and very appealing.

  Review by Joyfully Reviewed

Scenes From Adelaide Road beautifully rights the wrongs to one gentle soul.  This is a heartwarming tale that proves the power of love and gentle devotion.  Lennart suffered silently for years and begins to come out of his shell under the tender care of his new lover, Aidan.  A well written story of ultimate redemption, Scenes From Adelaide Road lays out a satisfying, feel good journey worth travelling.

  Review by Love Bytes Reviews

There was a lot about this book that I really liked. Firstly, the story is told from Lennart’s first person point of view but I was instead immediately drawn to the other main character, Aidan. The sex scenes were well written and skillfully used to further the story. There was nothing gratuitous about them and at no point did they slow down the progression of the plot. The first sex scene especially, was written perfectly to capture the nerves and excitement of first time sex, but at the same time there was still sexiness about it. It takes a lot to impress me with a sex scene, but like I said, I think that this author found a perfect balance.

If you like stories that are fairly low on the angst meter, where two guys who deserve it fall in love, where the characters grow and change and really learn, and where the characters are well written, then I suggest you pick up Scenes from Adelaide Road.

  Review by Sinfully Gay Romance Book Reviews

The book is very well-written. Ms. Stone is a talented, accomplished author. The descriptions are evocative, dialogue absolutely believable, and the characters both moving and authentic. The pace is brisk and propulsive. At times, it moved me deeply and angered me often. “Scenes from Adelaide Road” is a first-rate yarn about first-rate characters, and I recommend it most highly.
