@~}~Blog Tour & Review~{~@ Rose of Thorne by Mia Michelle

Title: Rose of Thorne (Rose of Thorne series Book 1)
Author: Mia Michelle
Publication Date: March 3, 2014
Genre: Contemporary Romance



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?

 My Review

For the past seven years Skylar Rose has not had an easy life, on her 16th birthday her family was involved in a hit and run accident in which both her parents died. She gave up on her dream of being a dancer to help give her little sister Sophie everything she could ever need. In her Senior year of college she works herself to the point of exhaustion to keep Sophie’s dream of becoming a soccer star afloat and hopes she is chosen for an internship that she has applied for that will finally kick start her own career and make things a bit easier.

Sebastian Thorne is the CEO of Thorne Industries, sexy, hot, basically the epitome of a billionaire playboy has a dark secret. 7 years ago he was the cause of an accident that killed 2 people and has never been able to let go of the guilt he carries or forgotten the girl with the turquoise eyes that he left in the car. He has checked up on her from time to time always from a distance until one night he is unable to stay away and “bumps” into Skylar at the coffee shop she works at, he vows to himself to stay away from her and he does until….. the day she walks into his office for an internship interview.

The tension between Skylar and Sebastian is so thick you could cut it with a knife, they are both unbelievably attracted to each other and yeah just wow!!! They keep things professional between them but will the draw they have to each other break that? 

One day while Skylar is out she is almost run over by another ridiculously sexy CEO, Lucas Drake. Lucas instantly feels a connection with Skylar and wants nothing more than for her to be his.
Will pushing Skylar away constantly keep working for Sebastian? Will Lucas win Skylar’s heart by default because of Sebastian’s hesitation? They both fall hard and fast for her and she them, but who will she ultimately choose? Will Sebastian tell her what happened or will Skylar find out on her own? For the answers to these and other smoking questions please go grab a copy of the book!!!

This was such a good book!! I was sucked in from the get go and I found myself needing to know more so I didn’t put the book down till it was finished. I loved the chemistry of the characters, the amount of emotions that Mia Michelle was able to influx into this book is amazing and left you wanting more. I enjoyed that it was both Skylar and Sebastian’s POV because it explains what is going on emotionally for both of them and their inner turmoil. It ended with a slight cliffhanger but the 2nd book is available now. I’m actually going to go grab it now so I can see what happens next!!
