I remembered her. I remembered everything.
But was it a blessing or a curse?

Half of me was still in love with the blue eyed girl wearing my crown around her neck. The other, felt betrayed that she could walk away when I needed her the most.

Struck down by her absence, an internal war

Oh Dear Lord. Cleansed With Fire nearly made my heart stop. Seriously I was on edge the entire book. This book was the perfect conclusion for Tessa, Andrew, Chase and Blossom. I love each one all for different reasons. S.K. Rose is the real deal when it comes to writing a book that sucks you in. When I say that I was sucked in, I mean I did nothing but read until I finished. I don’t think that I even ate supper. I couldn’t put it down.

Seriously though, everyone needs to read:
Crowned With Guilt

4 stars

overall I enjoyed this, but I don't think I was thaat invested compared to the first book? I was excited to continue reading Tessa and Andrew's journey because of the cliffhanger from the first book, but some parts dragged out imo (especially in the middle). However, I'm satisfied with (view spoiler) also, I loved the dynamic between the Blackwells! They were the family Tessa needed a

“The castle . . . It’s our castle.”

My heart feels like it has been ripped out of my chest by the devil herself (SK Rose)!!! Holy Scythe!!! Cleansed with Fire, the conclusion to Tessa and Andrew’s story is one of the deepest, darkest Love stories I have ever read (aside from book 1 Crowned with Guilt)! I cried, I jumped up and was pacing, I literally yelled out loud, I wanted to reach in and be involved in this virtual story because it was written that well! INCREDIBLE!!!

What an incredible conclusion to the most beautifully tragic love story. Rose’s follow up to her debut Crowned with Guilt is an angsty emotional roller coaster of epic proportions.
Why does it seem as if the universe is determined to squash Tessa and Andrew? At every glimmer of hope, there is someone to snuff out the light.

A story of two children blessed with an unexplainable and undeniable bond fighting against seemingly insurmountable odds for their happily ever after.

This is a complete MUST

This book! I can’t! Even! With! This! Duology!
I absolutely loved every page. This one does not pull its punches, and it’s just as heart-wrenching as the first instalment, but in different ways. I loved how this book was actually longer than the first. I hate when a duology feels rushed, but the gradual progression of Andrew and Tessa’s relationship gave me all the feels. Also, it’s not one of those books that ends right when they get back together. We get to see quite a bit of their happy ever

Cleansed with Fire is easily, hands down my #1 read of 2018 and possibly of all time. There really needs to be more than 5 stars! I would assign Cleansed with Fire 10 stars easily. I am astounded that this is only her second novel. S.K. writes as a seasoned pro with a multitude of published novels. The way in which she weaves her words is truly magical. I will be preordering and one clicking every one of her novels from here on out. She has a fan for life!!

Rose completely smashes all expectations, any reader had, with Cleansed With Fire. The amount of emotions that are laced within these pages is utterly unbelievable! Rose has you flitting from happy and smiling, to sad and crying. And brings it all home with a deep seated rage that has you screaming WHAT THE FUCK at the top of your lungs, throwing your kindle, and sending WTF did you just do messages to her. She has perfected rippi
Once upon a time there was a beautiful, but broken princess named Tessa. She lived in a hell trapped by a dragon, the only time she is truly happy is in her castle with her prince. But life isn't a fairy tale and happily ever after doesn't exist.

The prince forgot her, and left her behind. And the princess always faced with darkness gave in and became the Reaper.

Tessa is just a girl trying to survive in a world that does nothing but knock her down, time and time again.

I am facing a difficulty to form coherent and decent words to write an acceptable review which won't be filled up with screams, internal cursing, external device hurting and hating the author for writing this story. I was mentally preparing to get devastated after finishing Crowned with Guilt. But it appears I failed miserably. Is it bad that I feel that means the author has given us a mindblowing and breathtaking ending to the duet? I am sure you will agree if you read this books.

"He's always been, and always will be, the sunshine to my gloom. But I've pushed him away, shut out his light, and all too late came to realize, I'm still afraid of the dark."

5 stars all the way!! Beautifully written, heartbreaking and tragic, yet triumphant and hopeful, it checked all my boxes!! This amazing conclusion to this engrossing and addictive debut duet has leaped to one of my Top Reads of the year and I won't come down from the experience of reading it anytime soon. Angst, dark, love,

Bad but good

I really enjoyed the first book. I mean I devoured that thing. But this one kind of hit me the wrong way in a lot of ways. (SPOILER ALERT) I felt that the characterization of Andrew really took a bad turn. His immediate instinct to believe the worst about Tessa when she...literally does anything really left a bad taste in my mouth. It shows a lack of faith and trust. I feel like if he really loved her he would have believed in her at least to the extent that he would check into her d

Book 1 was great, and I was hoping the author would not ruin this second book, but she did.

I lost interest when I found out that the heroine was celibate during separation (4 years) but the hero was not. Worst of all he slept with heroine’s nemesis.

There were other problems as well, but this was the main one

What do I even say about this book and this series !!!!!!!! I was blown away by Book 1, literally blown away.

This entire story has been completely captivating !! The writing in this is just special, that's all I can think to say and it's crazy that this is a debut. Because if this series is any indication of things to come from S.K. Rose then we are all in for some very amazing books.

This story is dark and haunting almost. It truly tells the story of ultimate survival, and sometimes surviving i

This book exceeded my expectations. A full rollercoaster of emotions. S.K has hit it out of the park with this one. Just like book 1 I fell down the rabbit hole and came out so in love with the characters and this series.

I am so in awe of the talent this author has. I highly recommend you read these books! You'll thank me.

I really cannot put into words how much I loved this book. This duet. The first book, ripped me open. I was a mess. I related to Tessa so much, as I have gone through a lot of similar experiences. The way that S.K. writes, leaves you craving more. Her ability to draw you in and hold you there, is astounding. For this being her debute duet, she wrote it like a pro. Andrew will make you swoon. Chase, the never doubting, always there, best friend and rock, is a dream. Blossom, the magnetic force of ...more

This is the perfect sequel to Crowned With Guilt!! If you haven’t read that, you MUST read it first.

Tessa and Andrew’s story is a whirlwind of emotional pain and love. I don’t want to post any spoilers but the battles that Tessa must go through to find her happy ending are intense.

Andrew remembers everything that happened to him and the way he tells Tessa is so amazingly sweet that you fall in love with his character even mor

Omg. Seriously this is an awesome duet. Make sure you read Crowned with Guilt before you read the second book or you’ll be completely lost.

Tessa and Andrews story continues. After that ending in book one I couldn’t wait to jump into this... seriously what kinda roller coaster was this author gonna put me through. Book one gave me goosebumps. This book gave me goosebumps and had me reaching for the alcohol. Yep it’s that kinda read. Full of angst where you just wanna shout at the characters and w

This story is everything

Every so often a book comes along that has you viewing the world from a different perspective, makes you question people, your emotions, your heart. This is that book. People can be mean, they can break you if you let them, or you can stand up and fight. This book is about taking your power back, gaining hope, love and a future. This book is perfection, beautiful words full of emotion that leaves your skin tingling, heart pounding and emotions all over the place. Bent, no

It took me a while to come up with the words to fully express what I thought and felt about this book... This is this author's S E C O N D book and the conclusion to Crowned with Guilt, which broke me to pieces.

This was just as if not better than CwG, the characters were so well-written, they showed more growth. The emotions the author evokes. The brilliant picture she paints with words. Cleansed with Fire is a top favorite for me this year. I cried, I laughed. My mid was blown with revelations

Yes, S.K. Rose is in fact a human glitter bomb! She has newly exploded onto the author scene and left her mark. She is a new one click author for me. I adored book 1 of this series and book 2 did not disappoint. So many squees and eeks as I read this book. I am laughing at the jokes in this book and then BOOM she knocks me flat on my butt. What did I just read. This book was one hell of a roller coaster ride that I did not want to get off. Keep writing SK Rose!

Ok I never expected all the twists and turns this book would take, but enjoyed every second of it. I could not out it down. I read until 5 in the morning before posting my review. The book was amazing. It hit so many highs and so many lows. Truly one of the best duets out there

Loved the first book...and loved the epilogue to this book but, in the main, I didn't like this one nearly as much as the first. There was just something that felt off to me - for a start, all the characters began to sound similar to one another but really, it was just an awfully unbelievable plot.

Still looking forward to reading more from this new author though simply because the first book really did knock my socks off. This one was kinda meh - glad it's over so it's resolved but definitely no

This book will take you on a rollercoaster of emotions, but don't worry the journey is worth it. I knew it was the last book in the series and I was taking my time and savoring the characters and thier story. I was 42% into Cleansed With Fire when I got the chance to read tonight. I just finished it because there was no way I was putting it down. I am sad that Tessa and Andrew's story has ended, but I LOVED it! ...more

Cleansed with all S. K. Rose's fucking words is more like it.
Crowned With Guilt was an amazing and heart wrenching book. And the second book in this series was the fucking perfect conclusion for Tessa and Andrew's story.
