Today I am hosting a Tour Stop for Mia Michelle's book Rose of Thorne.
Summary (from Goodreads)
Title: Rose of Thorne
Author: Mia Michelle
Publication Date: September 24, 2013
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.
For those who are interested I do sometimes read non-paranormal books. Mainly they are all classics, but sometimes I come across them on goodreads or when I am offered to host a blog stop. And if you have read the summary, you will know that there is nothing paranormal in it. And this time this is what makes it so amazing. Raw emotions, feelings, thoughts of just two humans, well actually three, but I will be back to it soon. The secrets that lie beneath our facades are sometimes even more vicious then those of paranormal creatures we read about.
Well, for some of you who has read the book and know who is who, I will say: I am rare into the whole team thing (yes, I do have that badges on the side of the blog, not the point), but this time I was so in favor of Lucas aka sweet guy, that I started his fan club (fan numbers 1, anyone care to join?). I really hated Sebastian, actually I despised him. He really deserved what Skylar did in the end. Well for those who don’t know who Sebastian is, he is the guy who hated his dad so much, that he found his closure in sex and alcohol, and he is the reason Skylar has lost both of her parents. And well that’s not a spoiler. But the reason I hate him so much, is because he is such an asshole, and a really big one! Who in his right mind proposes and doesn’t tell the only secret which can end his relationship? I mean why not to say yourself and make the person understand then to hide it, and then have no right to explain? Well, suck it up Sebastian! You didn’t think she will walk out on you???
The book is amazing in many aspects. It tells us the story of real people, of crashed hopes and dreams and is so well written that you really find yourself in the turmoil of character’s feelings. I couldn’t put it down, that’s why I was late next day for my lecture and slept on the other one. But it was really worth it. (Don’t forget that I am into studies J). And the ending was so damn satisfying! I do hope Skylar will fall in love with Lucas. I want to see more of those two in book two. And I hope they will stay together and it will be them to have a happy ending together. She deserves somebody like Lucas. And I just know that they will be amazing together (yeah, I know I sometimes forget that they are in the book, and not in real life). I do hope my wish will come true. I don’t know about you, but I am contacting the tour organizator and plead her to take me on the second book tour. And well I am waiting for book two… Patiently… Hell no! I am no patient person!!!
I hope you will consider reading this book. It is amazing and tells a very deep story, and your heart aches while reading it and you may even shed a tear or two, or if you have a kind heart a lot! Just grab your copy now, and get lost into Skylar’s world. And it’s even more awesome that the writer has chosen to have several POV-s. you will definitely like that style. Happy Reading!!! Don’t forget to leave comments, they mean a lot to me!!! J J
Character Interview- Sebastian and Lucas
So I am sitting down today with Sebastian Thorne from Mia Michelle’s new book Rose of Thorne. Thank you so much for joining us today, Sebastian.
Sebastian: Thank you for having me today.
So, Sebastian you are well known for your wealthy bachelor lifestyle. You have dated hundreds of different women over the years. Tell the readers what makes Skylar Rose so special?
Sebastian: Yes, it is true. I have had more than my fair share of beautiful women over the years. But no one, and I mean NO ONE, can compare to Skylar. From the moment I laid eyes on her, I wanted her and only her. However, sometimes what we want isn’t the right thing. Sometimes we have to tell ourselves ‘no’ to protect the other person.
I see. Well, can you elaborate on that last part? What does she need protecting from? Is she in some sort of danger?
Sebastian: I will never allow her to be in danger of anyone or anything ever again.When I say that, I am including myself. If there isanyone she needs protecting from, it is me. I wish I could stay away, but I can’t seem to fight this incredible magnetic pull between us. It is absolute torture seeing her everyday knowing that I can never have her.
Why is that exactly?
Sebastian: She doesn’t really know the real me. No one does actually. She deserves someone she can love and trust and I am simply not that man. All I want is for her to be happy, even if that isn’t with me.
I understand that Skylar is currently caught the eye of Lucas Drake, CEO/CFO of Drake Corporation. How exactly are you handling the idea of the two of them dating?
Sebastian: Yes, I am well aware of Lucas’ interest in Skylar. He is an alright guy I guess, but Lucas is like me, he has quite the history of being a ladies man. I am not sure if I like the idea of him using Skylar that way. So my answer is no, I definitely don’t think that he is the right man for her.
Lucas: Oh really…and I suppose that you are implying that you are then? Hello everyone, I apologize for my lateness. My flight home from New York was delayed because of the weather.
That is fine Lucas. Thank you for being able to join us today. As you probably heard, we were just discussing with Sebastian about your interest in Skylar Rose. Would you care to elaborate on your relationship with her?
Lucas: Let’s just say that Skylar has my complete and undivided attention and I plan on keeping it that way.Don’t fucking roll your eyes up at me, Thorne! I can’t help it that you let her slip through your fingers. Not that you were any competition to me to begin with.
Sebastian: Don’t fucking tell me that you have any serious intentions with her. I know you all too well my friend. You don’t give a damn about anyone but pleasing that dick of yours!
Lucas: FUCK YOU! You have no idea what I feel for her! Besides that, aren’t you a fine one to talk? If you care so much about her, then why did I see you leaving Driskill’s the other night with that blonde? I bet you thought long and hard about Skylar when blondie was riding your dick! You are one selfish arrogant son of a bitch, you know it?
Alright gentlemen, please settle down!! Mr. Thorne! Mr. Drake! Please sit back down! We don’t want any violence in here.
Lucas: I apologize for getting out of line here at the studio. But Thorne you better back the fuck off or I swear to Christ that I will take you down! You know I am not afraid of you! Skylar is mine now, not yours.
Sebastian: Yours? Give me a fucking break! You barely know each other and you act like you are already in love with her. She isn’t yours Drake and she never will be!
Lucas: Really? Then I guess we will just have to see about that then won’t we?
Sebastian: Yes!! Yes, we will! And then maybe you will finally understand that she has and always will be mine.
Lucas: You fucking asshole! She will NEVER be yours!
Alright folks, that is all we have time for today. We appreciate our guests joining us….Wait! I said NO FIGHTING in here! PLEASE! SECURITY!!!!!
Lucas: Thanks for letting me join you guys today. Sebastian is good to see you again, bro.
Lucas, I’m going to start off by asking a similar question that I asked Sebastian earlier. For someone who has a reputation with the ladies, what makes Skylar different. Has she tamed the wild playboy?
Lucas: It is true, I certainly loved the ladies. I used to laugh at my grandfather when he told me that one day I’d have the breath knocked out of me by some girl. I laughed at his words until the day I had met Skylar. For me, she is ‘that girl’. I have never been happier in all of my life. She is amazing in every way.
