✿ Harley and Rose ✿ Carmen Jenner ✿ Blog Tour & Giveaway ✿

Ever since she was a little girl, thirty-year-old Rose dreamed of the day Harley would carry her across the threshold on their honeymoon. So what if this isnt her actual wedding day, and that shes only here because Harley was left at the altar just a few hours earlier?
Trading San Francisco for paradise and swapping her bridesmaids bouquet for a Blue Hawaii, Rose hopes she can finally escape the friend zone.
Once upon a time they had been more than friends, but life got in the way. Shes spent every day since wishing Harley would get a clue.
Shes always been his best friend.
Hes always been hers.
Shes in love with him.
Hes not in love with her.
Hes marrying someone else.
Hes hiding something.
Hes wellits complicated.

ARC received for an honest review

Gutted.  Absolutely gutted.  That is the only way to feel after finishing Harley and Rose.

This right here is what Ms Jenner has done to me with Harley and Rose

How do I pick up the decimated pieces of my heart to write this review?

Harley and Rose was so much more than I expected.  I knew I was in for a heck of a ride - it is a Carmen Jenner book after all - but wowsers this was one emotional rollercoaster.

From the minute I started reading this book, I was so full of emotions.  At times I couldn't tell you if I loved or loathed our main man Harley.  He was wonderful, then he would act like a dick, then he would do/say something to make my heart yearn for him again.

Rose - oh Rose.  You beautiful, amazing, wonderful woman.

 I laughed, I cried, I may have screamed at my Kindle, cursed at Ms Jenner and screamed out as I was reading this book.

Now with puffy eyes and blotchy skin (word of warning - do not read in public or at work!) I have to tell you just one thing.

Buy this book.

Page by page, chapter by chapter, Ms Jenner destroyed me.  Yet I couldn't help but turn each page, knowing that she was going do to it over and over again.

And I loved it.

I have read all of Ms Jenner's works to date, and this is my new favourite.

5 stars are not enough for Harley and Rose

Were dying. Little by little, were coming closer to the end. A part of me wants to scream and shout that we had plans, that hes breaking all of the promises we made one another in these last few heady weeks, and that everything we dreamed of is going up in smoke because of some stupid football game.
I know thats not fair, though. I know if the situation was reversed, Harley would be nothing but supportive of me, even if it killed him, even if it broke his heart, and so I push down those feelings. I tamp down the frustration and the fear and the anger and I smile, even though my heart is breaking.
