Doubt blooms...Someone bleeds...Change is coming...time to take heed...Book 2 in The Rose Trilogy. A paranormal romance that continues to surprise with a heroine that’s embracing her darker side, a vampire whose love starts to waver, and a vampire clan whose new Sire is filled with doubt. 

~ ROSE ~
I'm Rose Reynolds. I’ve shared my secret and ruined lives.
I’m no longer welcome in my childhood home.
And, I’ve recently threatened to kill my best friend.
I warned you - I'm not as innocent as everyone thinks…

I'm Christian and I’m worried about Rose. 
She’s changed and I’m not sure that’s a good thing.
She knows my secret and loves me still.
This I know, because I’m starting to hear whispers wherever I go…

The LasT thing I heard was Christian's voice in my head. "Rose, I forgive you."

Wow, and just…WOW! This book was even better than the first book in the series! Tish Thawer is an amazing author, and after reading book one and two of her Rose Triology, I am officially hooked and obsessed! This is a series you do not want to miss!

After Rose kills Meredith in Scent of a White Rose,  Rose runs off and lives with Christian and his clan. Living with the love of her life should make her happy, but she is everything but.  Rose has a secret that no one knows,  she is half demon. Rose is more confused than ever on what she should do, Christian’s clan is putting together a plan to illuminate all demons, how on earth could she tell them she is half of the monsters they are trying to figure out how to kill? Unfortunately Rose has more than just her own demons to fight…Meredith is alive…and she’s stronger than ever.

I want to state that Blood of a Red Rose, is the perfect name for this novel! In Blood of a Red Rose there was, well much more blood, and I got to say I am not complaining at all, I loved the extra bloody scenes! Anyways, this novel was a perfect sequel to Scent of a White Rose! I don’t know how Tish did it, but she was able to keep my attention just as much, if not even more in this second installment! While in Scent of a White Rose you learn about the vampire side of things, in Blood of a Red Rose you are learning about the demon side of things.

On top of learning more about demons, we also get to go inside the mind of a few demons and see things from their point of view! I love how Blood of a Red Rose will switch point of views just like Scent of a White Rose, how Tish can switch to multiple point of views throughout her novels just baffles me! I have read a few Alternating POV books, but books where it flips to more than just two characters is a first for me, and I loved it! In Blood of a Red Rose I felt like I knew the characters even more than before, while the romance was a bit tense between Rose and Christian it was still beautiful and heart wrenching!

All in all, if you enjoyed Scent of a White Rose, then Blood of a Red Rose will NOT disappoint! This sequel was even more epic than the first, there were more secrets, more love, more blood and more everything! If you read Scent of a White Rose, you need to pick up Blood of a Red Rose as soon as possible!

~Can I say I totally love Christian in this series…just saying ladies this is a novel gentlemen you do not want to miss! (;

I would recommend to anyone who is over the usual vampire meets girl falls in love with her sweetness kind of book. Rose is awesome, she is not sweet and I love that about her, in fact I hope to see her provoke the darker side of Christian a bit more.
