BookSirens provided a copy of the ePub in exchange for an honest review.

Raindrops on Roses by Millenia Black is a truly original contemporary romance. Love triangle—high school sweethearts Michael and Amber are happy or so Amber believes. But then Michael meets Priscilla at her grandmother’s funeral and the attraction is undeniable. What a journey. This page-turner draws the reader into their world immediately. The strength of the well-developed characters sets the tone of this novel. The primar

Michael Frost meets the lovely Priscilla Bauer at her grandmother's funeral. Priscilla's grandmother was the legendary actress, Veronica Bauer, who left Hollywood at the peak of her popularity. Veronica and her husband, George, started the Favorite Things boutique hotels. Michael is attending Veronica's funeral since his family's business, Frosted Designs, has worked with the hotel chain for a long time.
Michael and Priscilla are instantly attracted to each other. Priscilla does not know that Mic

Raindrops on Roses was an unexpected read, and I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going into. On the one hand, it had me curious. On the other hand, it had me fearful. After all, a story that is based upon cheating is not my thing… and yet, I was hooked.

This is far from being a cute love story, instead it is a story of heightened passions and how things can progress into the extremes. Fast paced, it easily packs a punch and you find yourself feeling for characters you did not expect to. With more

Another great book by this author!

This book is the first in the series and is incredibly addictive! I love the writing style and fast paced rhythm this book offers.

A tumultuous love story with highs and lows that we have come to expect from this author.

It's a wild ride and only book one in this series. I can't wait for the next one!

I was able to get a copy of this book from BookSirens. I was unaware at first that it was the start to a series, but what a great start. I'm not really fond of cheating, but I think that the way Michael owned up to what he had done wrong and tried to make it right was impressive. I do not like Amber and I feel like she takes advice from the wrong people. I'm nervous as to the chaos that she might cause in future books.

I really like Priscilla and think she is a classy lady. I'm unsure of her brot

Millenia Black's Raindrops on Roses was a great read. I really liked Priscilla, I thought she was sweet and I would be her friend if she was a real person. I also really liked Amber, I understood her pain and confusion and even her desperation. The author wrote them Amber in particularly very well. The entire read was quite good but I truly hated Michael. I have never disliked a character as much as I hated this lead male. Priscilla deserved better and Amber, my God, did she deserve so much more ...more

Michael meets Cilla - they fall in love instantly and passionately. Trouble is Michael is still living with long time girlfriend Amber.

I didn't like Michael - I felt so sorry for Amber and can really understand what's driving her.

I really like Cilla - is not her fault.

Raindrops on Roses is very readable and enjoyable story. The fact I dislike the male lead and feel sorry for the antagonist shows how well the author has written her characters.

Looking forwards to see what happens the the next

I really loved this book. Loved everything about it. I am only giving it 4 stars as the book was very short. I wish Authors would wait and combine 3 short books into 1. I would be willing to pay more for the finished story. As it is, I have to wait for the second book and by that time will have forgot what has happened.

This mixed family and relationship drama is well plotted and the very engaging main characters are enchanting and interesting in the ways their complex relationship becomes entangled and they develop mostly negatively in this opening volume of three.
Priscilla Bauer and Michael Frost as the main protagonists quickly enter the reader's heart. Amber Holland and her mother make wonderful villains and are easily hated, even if Amber and Michael have been lovers for most of a decade, there is no way

I received a reviewer's copy of this book from Lola's Blog Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book's blog tour promotions.

Raindrops and Roses starts out as a romance novel. We have the heroine who just lost her beloved grandmother, one who is a famous celebrity. The heroine meets the hero, whose father owns the company contracted by the heroine's grandmother. They have sex on the night of the funeral. The next day, the hero goes home to his fiance whom he has been with sin

Michael Frost & Priscilla Bauer met at her grandmother's funeral, which he's attending with his father, as their company has worked with Priscilla's family hotel chain for years. They have an instant connection, and neither can deny it, so they spend the night together. And even after, Michael & Priscilla are quickly falling for each other. There's just one huge issue, Michael is still with his high school sweetheart, Amber, and although he's been unhappy in the relationship for a cool minute, h ...more

This was an AMAZINGLY fabulous that I could NOT put down and I cannot WAIT for the second book in the trilogy to come out. The characters suck you in and take hold of you and you keep thinking about them days after you're finished with the book.

Michael meets Priscilla whilst in the middle of his own mess of a relationship. Priscilla seems to be just as head over heels for Michael as he is for her. There's only one thing standing in their way...his current relationship, Amber. And she'

I could not put this down. It's short and ends on a cliffhanger (you've been warned) and I've jumped right into book two! Michael isn't a bad guy, he just fell in love with Cilla and wants to be with her. Amber is too needy and volatile and I'm scared about what she'll do next! Great story. ...more

I can honestly say that this book did not disappoint. The characters are well developed and engaging with undeniable chemistry. The storyline has substance making for a smooth flowing storyline.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Totally fell in love with this story - rooting for Cilla and Michael. Amber is a nut!

Can't wait for book II.

This is an unexpected story that keeps you going from the very beginning. You have a relationship with Amber and Michael who you would want to believe are in love but really the relationship is just one sided. Sometimes young love finds itself just that, young love. Something that came together because of an age or an event in your life or just timing. For Michael I believe it was all of those and for some time now he really has been going through the motions. Amber can see all the signs but is ...more

Okay, I really really liked this book. There were some things that I kind of didn't like, such as the third point of view from Amber, but that was only at the beginning. As the story progressed, I actually liked having Amber's point of view because I felt it is essential to the plot.

Michael upset me at the beginning, but I found myself liking him a lot, especially with how repentant he was towards the end. I'm a sucker for reading grovelling heroes, and I know that is how it will be in the seco
While it took me a while to get into the story, I did end up liking it and the book is actually quite short and can be finished in under a day. The characters are bold and decisive. Michael meets Priscilla at a vulnerable time in her life, when she lost the one parent/adult in her life who took care of her and defended her against her abusive mother. He met her at a time when he was living in the last dregs of his relationship with Amber, his live-in girlfriend who he'd been dating since high sc ...more
Michael Frost meets Priscilla Bauer at her Grandmother's funeral and they have a connection that leads to a night together. Michael returns home to his girlfriend Amber, he has a plan to end it but what happens when he does. Will his new relationship with Priscilla thrive or will Amber interfere wanting Michael back?

The story is well written and I give it a 3.5. I was a bit put off by Michael and the way he dealt with Amber and that he cheated. Overall the chemistry of Michael and Priscilla is f

I enjoyed this love triangle. Michael fell out of love with his high school sweetheart, Amber and she goes ballistic. He's fallen for Priscilla, the granddaughter of a Hollywood actress who recently passed away, and Michael tries to transition from one relationship to another in the dodgiest way possible - and he pays the price.

Considering the fact that Michael had lost his mother at an early age and hadn't had much experience in relationships beyond Amber, it's not surprising he handle the who
Great writing, great plot, great characters! Yes, it is a cliffhanger, but what a good one! You won't be able to wait one minute to find the next book.
I loved these characters from the start. I could feel Michael's restlessness with Amber before he even meets Priscilla. I could feel how stunned Priscilla is when they meet at her grandmother's funeral and fall for each other instantly--they both find it hard to believe.

And the evil characters are so well-written too. They all have depth and odd b

A woman scorned and cheated on is a woman to fear. There are no boundaries when respect and decency are ignored. While I thought Amber was unhinged and did not condone her actions, Michael was delusional in thinking there were no repercussions for his actions.

I read and reviewed a copy of this book.

I have to admit I was totally floored by this book. I had no idea what was all started by Micheal would turn into such a crap storm. It is highly suspenseful and while Michael tries to play the innocent here he is far from innocent more like the major reason things go south and with a quickness. He will soon learn vengeance from a woman scorned is the worse kind there is. Love Cilla is a strong independent woman and for her and Michael the attraction is instant and mutual. When she finds out wha ...more

The story intrigued me from the start and had me eager to find out what would happen next. Surprisingly, the character that intrigued and interested me the most wasn’t the hero or the heroine — it was Amber. Relationships and human emotions aren’t black and white. They are very complicated and at times irrational. I felt sorry for Amber. Don’t get me wrong - nothing excuses the crap she pulled, but it came from a very sad and desperate place. No one wants to be replaced, discarded, and rejected. ...more

Millenia Black is another new author to me. I love reading a book by an author not known to me because there’s a kind of tension when I start reading because I really don’t know what I’m going to get. Will I enjoy the author’s style, the way they set out their book, the way they make the story flow?

I have to say I’m very impressed with Raindrops on Roses. Now I get that a love triangle isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but if it’s done right, then you kind of accept the cheating.

For example….Michael

I really enjoyed this book. The character development is so well done and it just sucks you in. Beautiful Cilla falls for Michael Frost after a one night stand proceeding her grandmothers funeral and as a reader you are instantly invested in their relationship and how it will develop until that is Amber is introduced and suddenly you can't believe what a snake Michael Frost is cheating on is high school sweet heart. Although there is a lot of deceit on Michael's part you still can't help but roo ...more
