4 out of 5 (liked it)

I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.

This is the story of Rose and Jacob. Rose is the younger (by a year) sister of Amelia and has always been in her shadow, even though Amelia's actions are dubious at best. Unfortunately, as is sometimes the case, their parents see no wrong in Amelia but continue to come down hard on Rose.

Rose catches the eye of Jacob and spends some (innocent) time with him before she finds out that her sister has been after him for a while. She steps back but it is Jacob who won't back away. It is Rose he wants, not Amelia, and he won't take no for an answer. This is partly why it comes as such a shock when Jacob suddenly disappears and won't tell Rose where he's been. It turns out that Jacob has actually kept two major secrets from Rose and that is enough to make her walk away.

There are highs and lows aplenty in this book and you will be drawn into the drama from page one. Some of Rose's reactions, to be honest, I couldn't understand. Once the truth comes out, I don't think I would have been as forgiving or understanding as she was but that's just me.

Contemporary Romance with plenty of action and drama. Really enjoyed it.

Author Bio:

We are two thirty-something females, living in Cornwall, England.
We both have full time jobs and manage to squeeze writing in around very busy lives.

Last year we joked about writing a book, and in December we actually started writing! On 12th March 2014 we pressed the ‘publish’ button and didn’t breathe for a whole several minutes!

We have now written four books, ‘Rocking Esme’, ‘Rocking Scarlett’, ‘Rocking Marcy’ and ‘Rocking Ashton’ and we also have a million other book ideas which we are dying to write!
When we first started writing, we didn’t tell anyone- not even our other halves! We decided to tell them about a month before publishing, then about a week before publishing we told our friends and family.

We both love reading, and since buying Kindles, reading has become much more of an obsession and we have both discovered authors we had never heard of. Some favourites are… Jennifer Foor, Aurora Rose Reynolds, Kirsty Moseley, Kelly Elliot, Terri Anne Browning, Diane Chamberlain… the list is endless!
