"Three days after the accident, I buried the two most incredible loves of my life. I would have willingly allowed them to bury me right along with them, but instead I had to bury my grief and be strong for my little sister. So, I do the only thing I can do… survive. I am, after all, a Rose by name. Waiting to bloom, and yet, wilting fast in the sun."
Losing her parents at a young age forces Skylar to grow up way before most teens. The trials she must go through to reach the present point in this book are more that a lot of people ever have to face. Raising her younger sister while trying to grow up herself leaves Skylar with tough decisions to make. And when a seeming knight in shining armor comes along who is she to look a gift horse in the mouth. I guess she shouldn't have tempted fate.
Mia Michelle weaves magic and did something I thought was impossible. She made me Team Sebastian. I have read this book a few times and I have cried each time...the emotion is no less, even though I know exactly what is going to happen. I hate that there is a cliffhanger but it's not that bad...and Thorneless will be out before long. Mia is a new author and this book is a solid 4.5 star read for me. If her first book is this amazing I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!!!!!
Warning...there IS a cliffhanger. This is the first of 3 books.
Warning...there IS a cliffhanger. This is the first of 3 books. That being said, it's not that bad and there is a significant preview of Thorneless at the end. Also, the release for Thorneless shouldn't be too far away.
I will do my best to break it down without any spoilers.
Starting out with present day, you really get a feel for the way Skylar and Sebastian live their life after such a terrible tragedy seven years ago. Then you get to live that night with them both.
Fate seems to bring them back together time and time again. And even knowing what I knew about Sebastian, I absolutely loved him. I felt like these two people could heal each other. That they needed one another to survive all that life has thrown at them.
Sebastian isn't the only man that has captured Skylar's attention. There is also Lucas Drake.
There are so many secrets they are both hiding to protect the other. Secrets that could tear them apart. When all comes out into the open will they be able to pick up the pieces of their shattered hearts.
I loved all the different POV's. I always knew what was going on with all the characters.
From the first page I was hooked. Sucked right into this story and help there until the very end. There is so much I want to say but can't without taking the chance on ruining this absolutely terrific book for you.
IT IS A MUST READ!!
Ok I first off I have to say that this book gripped me from literally the first page.
We meet Skylar on her 16th birthday. While out celebrating her entire life is shattered in one instant. She learned from that day its better to hold everything in and protect the ones around her.
Sebastian holds his own secrets. He is haunted by what happened 7 years ago every night. Every night he sees those amazing eyes staring back at him.
When Sebastian and Skykar meet for the first time I can completely feel their chemistry from the moment they lay eyes on each other.
As they begin to feel something for each other their past come back in play and tear them apart. And of course Sebastian isn't the only man trying to win Skylar's heart.
Can these two overcome their paths and find their way to each other or will their secrets keep them apart forever.
All I have to say is I could not put this book down. I was literally in tears just reading the prologue. And sitting on the edge of my seat the entire time.
Mia did an excellent job with making me feel their emotions and everything that they went through. I can not wait to continue their journey.
Completely and amazingly 5 stars
