Blog Tour: Review and Giveaway "Rose of Thorne" by Mia Michelle



When a drunk driver tragically orphans Skylar Rose at the 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 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.

Haunted by their past, these two want nothing more than to have their life given back to them. 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?

* BOOK 2 THORNELESS will follow VERY VERY SOON!! Contains sexual content and abusive situations. Recommended for readers 18+ years.
Review by Janeane - ARC received for honest review

I was not sure what to expect when I signed up for the blog tour of Rose of Thorne - but wow, I am so glad I did!  What a wonderful surprise Rose of Thorne turned out to be!

Orphaned on her 16th birthday, Skylar has spent the past 7 years doing everything she can to give her younger sister Sophie, a rising soccer star, everything she could ever need.
In her last year of college, she works herself to exhaustion while praying that she gets the internship that will be the one to start her career rolling.

Sebastian Thorne - now the sexy billionaire CEO of Thorne Industries, was a reckless teenager who caused the accident that killed Skylar's parents.  He has never been able to assuage the guilt, or forget the girl he left in the accident.

He has always kept tabs on her from a distance.  Unable to keep away, he "accidentally" runs into her at her work one night, but vows to himself that he must keep away. Which he - kind of - does.
All is going well, until the day she walks into his office for a job interview.

The tension between these two is thick - and HOT!  Seriously, you would get proximity-tension just by being in the room with these two! But they keep things professional - or do they??

Enter Lucas Drake - who nearly runs over Skylar. Another sexy, rich, CEO.  Love at first sight - yeah, pretty much for Lucas.

What I want to know is - what road do I need to be crossing  to find a Sebastian or Lucas??  Damn this girl has some luck in the men department!!  These two fall hard and fast for her, and she has feelings for both, but who will she choose?
But - what will Skylar do if she ever finds out the truth?  Will Sebastian tell her the truth?

For this, you will have to buy the book and read!  I read Rose of Thorne in one sitting, just could not put it down!  The story grabbed me right from the word go, and kept me captivated till the end.

There were a couple of grammatical and spelling/typo errors but not enough that they annoyed me - which they usually do. Other than that, Rose of Thorne was very well written.

But then, it happened:
And I was all:
I know it won't be long until Book 2 - Thornless - will be out, but I want it now!!!
