Review: The Blue Rose by AM. Helen

Publication Date: 2/1/2015
Rating: 4 Stars

Official Blurb:

Three strangers are on a collision with love and obsession... 

When Melissa Medina takes up the position of Spanish teacher to enigmatic businessman Alexander Kane, the attraction between them is instant and intense. The strict lines of employer and employee soon begin to weaken as desire overtakes all other rules. 

With wealth and power though, comes exposure. Kane has enemies. Melissa has secrets. And outside forces from their past and present lives are intent on destroying their new relationship for mutual gain. 

Sebastian Moretti is just such a force. When he wants something, he gets it, no matter the obstacle he must remove to obtain his desire. And he wants Melissa Medina, despite the danger she represents in unmasking his true nature to all. 

As their lives converge, passions intensify, past secrets spill into present-day lives and lies begin to look like truths. 

But who is the saint and who is the sinner?

Melissa thinks this is just your everyday interview to teach a very wealthy man. Little does she know she’s about to embark a crazy and passionate love affair/train wreck that will consume her heart and future. The instant she meets Alex the sparks fly and the boundaries between teacher/student are crossed. Will her past collide head on with Alex’s playboy ways? Or does she have what it takes to take the wild womanizer with a heart barely stitched together?

I’m not exactly sure how I feel about this book after finishing it. It was a very enjoyable read as far as the story goes, but I feel the pacing was just a tad off in spots. It took me a lot longer to get into the meat of the story than I expected. The characters are superb. Melissa is a strong female lead with just enough pep in her step to draw readers into her story and balance out Alex’s womanizer/play boy past. Alex himself is a bit of an enigma. The demons in his closets are numerous and will wreak havoc on any kind of relationship he can manage with the one woman he’s ever truly wanted to possess and own. Now if you aren’t a fan of cliffhanger stories, I would back away very slowly from The Blue Rose. It’s cliff hanger ending will give you a knockout punch without even a single hello in advanced!! Since I finished this book in the wee hours of the morning, I found myself unable to go to sleep because of how much I wanted to know how it was going to end. Guess I just have to impatiently wait for the next book!
