1/18/15 – Great start to a new series written by Frankie Rose! I was so hooked from the beginning. So many storylines that had some bombshell secrets exposed. Couldn’t have guessed that ending if I tried! Didn’t see that coming at all! Compelling main characters along with engaging supporting characters that were so beneficial to the story’s intense drama. And, the couple’s romance was passionate and steamy. One hardcore mindf**k this was! Don’t doubt me when I say that this book shouldn’t be missed! Can’t wait for the next installment to the series to be released!!
1/29/15 - One of my favorite series that I read last year was the Blood & Roses series by Callie Hart! So imagine my surprise when I heard that Callie Hart is actually Frankie Rose and she has a new book out – Winter!!! Yay!!!
This was romantic suspense at its finest! From one chapter to the next the intensity builds with several burning questions and more shocking secrets revealed. Ups and downs and all sorts of twists and turns. A rollercoaster type of enigma. And, characters that were locked in with emotionally challenging moments. OMG!! And, the unpredictable essence of what was going to happen next was high-drama personified. This totally rocked my world with excitement and surprise! Cops, college kids, and musicians along with family drama and unexpected predators just add to the mix while bringing about one hell of suspenseful climax. Didn’t see that coming! No way! Totally unpredictable was how I saw that going down. On the edge of your seat thrilling. This was an excellent introduction to a new series! It included one hot couple that was compelling and passionate. Their romance was touch and go at times, but that spark was there keeping them together as one irrevocable couple. Both characters experienced different horrifying tragedies in their lives, which left them broken and disgraced. It’s so painful to witness two young people jumping over obstacles at a time when life is supposed to be fun and exciting. Now I’m not going to delve into the story because I’m afraid I’ll give away a spoiler, but I will say how deep into the story I felt myself disappearing. I was swept away into the nitty-gritty of the scheme of things.
I can’t say enough positive things about the multiple storylines and character development that was explored. One of my favorite reads so far this year! Magnificent! Endures a somewhat sad but hopeful ending. It doesn’t involve so much as a cliffhanger per se, but it’s more like a “see ya later” type of ending. Book 2 can’t come quick enough!!!!
