Overview

When a drunk driver tragically orphans Skylar Rose at the young age of sixteen, she leaves her dreams behind and takes on the daunting task of helping her elderly grandmother raise her young sister. While other girls her age were living a typical carefree life, she was picking up double shifts at a local café and struggling to pay the bills.
Always putting her sister’s needs and school first, Skylar has never had time to date or develop intimate relationships. Now a senior in college, she has her sights set on an amazing internship opportunity. The last thing she needed was for a sexy distraction like Sebastian Thorne to walk into her life.
Sebastian Thorne had been an entitled and reckless nineteen year old when he got behind the wheel of his new sports car that night. When his night of indulgence goes tragically wrong, Sebastian hesitantly turns to the one person, he knows can make everything go away… The one person he hates… his father.
Now twenty-six, Sebastian is the young enigmatic and powerful CEO of his late father’s design company, Thorne Enterprises. With both millions in the bank and a new woman on his arm almost every night, the world never knew the dark secret he carried inside. Still plagued with nightmares from the night of that horrific accident and having to leave the beautiful girl behind, Sebastian vows to find the one that haunts his dreams.
Sometimes the choice of revisiting our past opens the door to a future that we never thought possible.
But what do you do when the person who gave you back your life, was the very one that took it from you in the first place?

    I absolutely LOVED this book! I don't know what else to say other than this story is so freakin amazing I can't wait to read the next book. The chemistry between Sebastian abd Skylar is off the charts Hot! But I'm so glsd she found out his secret before it was too late. I extremely recommend this book to everyone. But be prepared to cry a lot and be overcome with overwhelming amounts of emotions.

    At age sixteen Skylar Rose is made an orphan when a drunk dr





    At age sixteen Skylar Rose is made an orphan when a drunk driver crashes into the car she is in with her parents, instantly killing her parents.    At this moment her dreams and hopes are put on the back burner. She picks up the pieces, working double shifts to make her sisters life carefree.     As a senior in college, about to graduate, she has never had a real relationship or been able to live life for herself. 




    Then she meets Sebastian Thorne.  He is the CEO of his father’s design company, with a ton of money and quite a playboy type life.   When he meets Skylar, his whole world changes.   He no longer wants to be that playboy.   He has found the woman that he wants to spend the rest of his life with.  




    Yet, a secret hangs between them. 




    This is a story I could not put down.




      I instantly connected with Skylar.   The way she stepped into an adult role and lived the horrible hand life had dealt her made her seem so strong to me, yet there were many times I felt like she needed a hug or some guidance.   The way she put her sister’s care and life before hers showed just how mature she was.  I was so happy when Sebastian came into her life.   It meant she could have some fun, enjoy life a little.  




    Sebastian was a jerk.  Although he cared about Skylar, he had the oddest ways of showing it.  He would love on her one minute then totally act like a jerk the next.  I liked the character, it was a character that I loved to dislike.  During one chapter I would be swooning over his romantic gestures, in the next chapter I would be cussing him out and wanting Skylar to RUN the other way from him.




    This is a book with quite a bit of erotica in it, not my usually read, and I loved how tastefully Mia Michelle wrote it.  Book Two cannot come soon enough, I am anxiously awaiting its arrival.   Rose of Thorne is a book I highly recommend.

    WOW!

    This is one amazing story. I normally do not write reviews but I had to write one this time. I get bored easily with books at times but this one kept my attention from the start to the end. It has action, suspense and romance. I also loved that the reader was able to read most of the characters POV including the secondary ones. It is a roller coaster ride throught out the story. Please do yourself a favor and buy this book. You will enjoy it. I can't wait for the next book in the series
