High school senior Rhodanthe Watson dreams of a life like any other girl her age: get a boyfriend, pick a good college, and find the perfect shade of lip gloss. But her reality is an overbearing and overprotective mom, and actually making it to college requires surviving the heart condition she's had for years.

Meeting and falling in love with Julian, a handsome and mysteri

While reading Rose Blossom by Renee Travis, please shut all your thoughts and opinions about Twilight series aside, because the author, has profoundly mentioned that she has penned down this story, even before Stephanie Meyer's Twilight has got published. So out of respect, Please Do Not Compare This Book to Twilight Series. It was a mere coincidence that both the stories are quite similar. Let's talk about Rose blossom; it's very beautiful, romantic and quite scary too!

A 17year old girl, R

I started wiritng this before Twilight got published (honestly) but it wasn't finished until after New Moon came out and by the time I was ready to send it to LA's there were too many vamp books out. So it does have a Twilight feel, though, hopefully, without some of the worse Twilight qualities (sparkly vampies, stalking boyfriends). Self Published, so editing wise, be kind. Thanks for reading.

As always is most vampire books you will find;

1)no eating or drinking
2)cool to the touch skin, unless

Unfortunately, this author is very clearly self-published. The author could use the structure and aid of a good editor and publisher.

Rose Blossom is like, in my opinion, a combination of Taming of the Shrew, Twilight and A Walk to Remember. In retrospect, it has some nice plot-points and some good characters, for a teen novel. Unfortunately, the writing is a bit pedestrian and often awkward and there is almost no proper punctuation anywhere in the novel. Some of these errors are entirely fixabl

A vampire novel with a twist- I liked the love story of Rose and Julian and felt the author captured a teenage girl's voice well. Julian's voice was a little more awkward sounding but he was still a good character. There were a few editing mistakes but I didn't find them distracting. I've read books published by major publishing houses that has more mistakes in them. Yes it reminded me some of Twilight, but that's not a bad thing. It was a quick, light read and overall I enjoyed it.

Okay I know it's taken me a while to write this but here it goes...

Review: When I first recieved this book, I didn't know what to expect, it seemed pretty good in the summary and the cover had a good call out. I honestly did love the book, and the general plot of how Julian's love for Rhodanthe kept growing with each passing day and how he tried to always be there for her due to her illness. I liked how there was that present feeling of trying to figure out why she kept talking about her heart,

“The heart is a mystical thing. It keeps us alive by pumping blood to every part of our body. It is a strong organ which scientists say has no memory. But the heart is also a thing of great speculation and power; spoken, written, and even put into songs, by many great authors, singers, actors and poets around the world. The heart is supposed to be the center of love, feeling, loneliness and heartbreak.
And it was that organ, that great red Valentine's Day sought-after-object that was at present causing me trouble”
