Description

Every witch knows the rules: Stick to your own kind. Never reveal your powers to outsiders. Take a consort from the witching families or kiss your magic good-bye forever.

For years I've been quiet, obedient Rose Hallowell. I accepted the man my stepmother chose for me. But I never stopped missing my long-ago friends. 

Now we're back on my childhood estate to arrange my marriage. The boys I grew up with? They're still in town - and they haven't forgotten me either. And damn if they haven't grown up well. 

They've got no magic, no place in my life. But they're charming and sweet and infuriatingly hot, and I can't seem to stay away. The more I try to resist, the more secrets I uncover about my family, my betrothal, and everything I thought was true about the witching world. 

I've been lied to. I've been betrayed. So to claim my magic and my happiness, I'll break every rule there is - and then some. 

Don't mess with this witch. Every rose has thorns. 

Contains mature themes.

Great Idea, Slow Execution- Not sure I will buy book 2

Narration makes audio books, and this narration left something to be desired. Despite have both a male and female narrator, each chapter was read specifically by one or the other, instead of having the male narrator read the male thoughts and dialog and the female narrator reading the female thoughts and dialog. This was further complicated as all the male characters ready by the male narrator sounded exactly the same, and his impersonation of the female characters voice was off-putting enough to draw your attention away from the story. The female narrator was much much better than her male counterpart.
Plot was interesting, even if it was slowly executed for how short the book is- making this feel like one full book broken into two just to make more money. And the bridge from book one into book wasn’t quite interesting enough for me to ensure I spent that money on book 2.
The book was good without out being overly crude, and if the narration had been better I would have ignored the slow pacing. I would buy a paper copy instead.

be prepared to use two credits

there isn't much character development and youll need the next book to get to any kind of resolution. I held on waiting for something more to happen, It doesn't. It's like being asked on a date and then being asked to pay. There was some potential to explore unconventional relationships, but it fell short without the character development.

only if you don’t get hung up on the details

As there is some sex involved, this has to be classified as UpperYA, but the writing feels like it’s geared more toward a pre to mid-teen audience.
For as much of a reader as Rose is supposed to be, she’s incredibly stupid in not questioning Celestine about Everything she knows related to the Hallowell family. Did she have anything to do with Rose’s mother’s death? Does she know if someone else was responsible? Was it truly not due to any magical influence? What did Rose’s father ask Celestine to do? Why?
The guys are supposed to be 25-27 years old, and Rose is just shy of her 25th birthday. They act like they’re 15-17 years old. I would expect a little more business, worldly, emotional, sexual and other life experience to come through in dialogue, thoughts or actions in this story.
There is a lot of creativity and an interesting premise in Chase’s world building, but there are a lot of gaps in logic; translated into disconnects in dialogue, action and narrative.
Ok if you don’t get hung up on the details, which I do.
George and James do a decent enough job of narration.

This book was really slow and boring.

I struggled to finish this book this is the second time I've actually tried to read this book. And I don't think I will finish this book at all.

Addicting Series

Briar Rose is an amazing FMC and the 4 guys we are introduced too are equally as thrilling. I love the story and the heat in this book. The ending was great with the surprise that showed up. makes me excited for book 2.

Love this series!! *Highly Recommend*

STORY REVIEW: This was a great first book to this series as it laid down so many layers to the story to rope you in. I loved the main character and her relationships with all the other characters she encountered, whether good or bad. I want a friend like her imaginary friend Philomena as she’s amazing. Then her struggle with the connection and past she has with her guys she grew up with and the man she’s arranged to marry!!

NARRATOR PERFORMANCE REVIEW:
-I LOVE the female narrator Aletha George, she has a way of delivering the story in a way that gives so much feeling!!
-The male, Tristen James... not really so much, which is why I gave the performance 4/5 stars. I wanted so badly to like him as he does have a sexy tone to his voice which kept me listening. However, I’ll admit his slow/unemotional/lack of personality narration (compared to how Aletha delivered the chapters) it sometimes scratched at my nerves.. though after a while you get used to it.

Not the best I’ve read- semi spoilers

I LOVE reverse harem novels, but I definitely feel like there is something missing with this book. The author constantly refers to Rose’s past with the boys, but never gives any real detail. I kept waiting for a flashback that never came. I felt like I was expected to understand a relationship dynamic that was never fully explained.
