Black-Rose-3D-Paperback-eReader Lillian Locke had the perfect life in Boulder, Colorado. She had the boyfriend of her dreams, a wonderful family, awesome friends, and a spot on the track team at a great college. There wasn’t anything life could throw at her that she couldn’t get through . . . until he found her. Lillian never could have imagined being abducted and chained up in the dark. Worse yet, being just one of many girls kidnapped and held captive by a madman. All she can do now is hope that she survives the brutality of their captor long enough to find a way to free herself and her new captive friends. When Richard Haines’ girlfriend goes missing, he makes it his personal mission to find the woman he loves and bring her home to the safety of their loved ones. Seeking the help of friends and family, Richard abandons everything except for his pursuit of Lillian. But when someone else close to Richard goes missing, and the bodies of the abducted girls start showing up in the hills outside Boulder, the only thing he can do is hope that he finds her before it is too late.

Review: *This book was given to me by the publishers and netgalley in exchange for an honest review.* I had high expectations after I saw the cover, I mean is absolutely gorgeous! The summary sounded intriguing, however I felt like the story was a bit  predictable. I’ve read the same plot in a story on wattpad, but I enjoyed both of the books. The ending was different and I was really glad, because it was kind of better this way. I liked the strength and will power of the main character, and that she had people who loved her so dearly that they didn’t stop until they found her. The antagonist was extremely violent and mean, however that kind of character was built because of his past. The characters and the setting was so well written, I had goosebumps at certain parts of the book. An interesting read for someone who likes suspense and a bit of horror.

Rating: 4

~~Praise for Black Rose~~
“There are just not enough words to describe how great I thought this book was! I completed it in one sitting, refused sleep till I was finished. 

A psychotic killer is abducting women, holding them hostage for days and days while raping and torturing and killing in a most horrendous way. Except you know this by reading the back of the book. What you don’t know is the story inside…there is so much more.”

A question answered by the Author:
How does the kidnapping affect Lillian and ​Richard​’s relationship? Just like any other couple that experiences a traumatic situation, they’ll either grow closer or apart. Obviously, with just reading the summary of the book, you see that the situation had forced the two of them to realize their full feelings for each other. So in that sense it brought them closer together, but it was unfortunate that Lillian had to be kidnapped for them to realize those feelings. It’s what happens at the end portion of the book that tests their relationship the most, and you see that constant struggle that they go through, that I feel, is a very normal battle that any relationship would endure.
