Rose of Thorne by Mia Michelle: Review

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 cafĂ© 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 feel it like this book has the best of everything! I mean I thought I knew what to expect from the synopsis, but I was not at all prepared. 

"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. 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.
