    1. When I started this book I thought it was going to be one of those books where the girl gets kidnapped, abused and falls in love with the guy. I hate those. This book is not that. It's frigging dark though and the people that have triggers might not need to read it. I liked it thoughuse of the main character Lee.There has been women going missing in the community but no one ever thinks it could happen to them right? It does happen to Lee. She is taken and wakes up with six other women.ained in a [...]

She finds herself chained in a strange room, drugged and afraid, but she isn't alone. She discovers she is one of many women who have recently gone missing. Her fight to survive is just beginning.

    3. Black Rose is a bold novel that pulls no punches. It does not apologise for it's content, and does not need to. Not for the timid in nature, Black Rose contains some fairly distressing scenes and story telling. A book that held my attention from start to finish, certainly gripping.Lillian is happy in her relationship with Richard, the book starts of with snippets of their relationship together and an introduction to a woman who has a lot going for her, and great things ahead of her. All of that [...]

    4. Many thanks to the author, Kris Thompson and the publisher, The Writers Coffee Shop, for my e-book copy of this book to review."Black Rose" is a dark, graphic and violent suspense thriller, that sets the tone for a action packed plot. The story brings back flashbacks of the movie "Kiss the Girls" with Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judda movie that I loved! It is hard to believe that this is a debut novel for this author, as the words and language are crisp and bounce off the page. I couldn't put thi [...]

    5. I gobbled that book up in one sitting!!! Remember that movie Kiss the Girls with Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd? Well Black Rose is that on STEROIDS and SO MUCH BETTER! Two of my favorite words to use when describing a bookTWISTED and BRUTAL! It seriously played out like a fantastic suspense thriller movie. Be forewarned, it is VERY graphic and violent.YAY! If you love dark books like me, you'll understand where I'm coming from. The shocking prologue certainly sets the tone of what you're in for [...]

    6. I am going to be the minority here, I stopped reading at 49%. I really didn't see how this book was going to improve. This book lacked depth,character development and the storyline is a little too reminiscent of James Patterson's "Kiss the Girls". I found the approach and writing was incongruous with the subject matter. It was not what I expected.

    7. 3.5 Stars!I get why some of those that have read this compared it to the movie “Kiss the Girl” with Morgan Freeman and Ashley Judd…. It’s about women gone missing, abducted, raped and after so much weeks, their mutilated bodies are dump in the woods. He collects these women to make his own personal harem. But the comparison to the book and the movie stops there (for me anyways). The story is told through one of the abducted woman’s ordeal and her boyfriend who desperately search for he [...]

    8. This review is also posted on The Lovely Pages Reviews5 wtf did I just read stars!"Eenie, meenie, miney, moe. Who will be the first to go?"Ohh I love this kind of books - not the thriller ones although I did love that theme - but those that literally hook you in from the first page. Fun story: The morning I got my ARC, like most people, I checked my emails and when I saw it I got so excited I said to myself, I'll just read a few pages, get the feel of it and that's it cause this is a dark book [...]

    9. This book was recommended by several book buddies. I gave in and pushed it up my never ending pile of TBR list. I am so glad I did. I was hooked. ALL night I stayed up to finish this book. I began reading it around 9pm, I couldn't leave it alone, so I stayed with it right until the end.Some people will say.n't read this about rape, abduction, tortureSome will start it and not want to finish itCan I urge you to read it, get past that and see the strength of the girls involved, see how this experi [...]

    10. When I received a complimentary copy of this book, the author warned me that it was dark. And it is, very much so. But that's not all that Black Rose is, and I found myself enjoying the triumphs herein, as well as shaking my head at the main characters on occasion.For this, I won't apologize. I'm a cop's kid, at bottom.You can read the blurb - It's accurate. This is a tale of women who are abducted, imprisoned, and abused by a man who uses them for his own needs. This part of Black Rose is terri [...]

    11. I am so impressed with this new author. She came out of the gates with a powerful novel for the readers who enjoy a dark and twisted read. She tackled the dual POV of storytelling and kept it consistent and smooth. The characters in this story were very well developed and told powerful yet distressing details of how they felt going through the nightmare that greeted Lee and Richard. The synopsis gives you a glimpse at what you are about encounter with this plot. Lee and Richard are in love yet t [...]

    12. **Actual Rating 3.5 stars**Please note: This review will appear on my blog as part of the "Black Rose" blog tour on the 19th November with further information and links.I read this in pretty much one sitting, so well did it flow and for the most part I thought it was a terrific psychological suspense novel, with a realistic twist generally speaking and it definitely packs one heck of an emotional punch. The most resonant part of the novel for me came with the relationship between Richard and Lil [...]

    13. Perfectly Sick and Twisted. I don't know how this book can be reviewed without giving anything away. All the kidnapped women were strong in their own way, but Lee was exceptional! If you're looking for a book to get your rocks off, I can tell you that you will not find it here so please look elsewhere. This story was very well written. The plot was tight even though everything didn't go my way. I'm sorry but the last kidnapping was kind of funny. Don't ask me why because you'll think i'm crazy. [...]

    14. The tag line for this novel really sums up the determination of Lillian Locke throughout the story."It's better to die on your feet than beg on your knees."This story is the gritty depiction of the life of a kidnap victim and the people who fight to find her.Lilly is the typical co-ed with a busy life, great friends, and a doting boyfriend. Unfortunately, she was exactly the challenge a madman thought he needed. One moment she's in her car, the next she's locked up in a darkened room with only t [...]

    15. This was a tough book to stick with at the beginning. Any book dealing with this subject matter should be tough. I admit to almost giving up on it after about a quarter of the way in. I was worried about the graphic details that I felt would be coming as the story progressed. Luckily, I hung in. Kris Thompson approaches this subject with as much detail as needed to keep you feeling very much at ease but without overwhelming you with brutality. There is a fine line to be walked, and this book doe [...]

    16. This is an extremely well written gripping story. Lillian's life falls apart when she is kidnapped and held captive by a sick stranger. While being held captive she realises that the girls gone missing in her hometown are being held captive too. The kidnapper believes these girls are his and he can do what he likes. She is brutally beaten and raped. However the kidnapper hadn't taken into consideration how strong Lillian is. We also get Lillian's boyfriend, Richards, points of view. He tells us [...]

    17. Wow, I'm almost speechless. Kris Thompson wrote a raw, emotional, and (at times) extremely difficult to read tale about a psychopathic kidnapper and rapist. I swear I my eyes teared up starting in the prologue and then I cried for the second half of the book. Lee, she was a kick ass heroine. Strong beyond belief and amazingly written. Her boyfriend, Richard, was loyal and strong. I'm blown away at how well all of the characters were written and even the smallest character had a lot of meaning. T [...]

    18. Holy wow.What a book.This one is going down as a favorite book of 2014 (or going up in the sidebar of my blog).When the book starts, Lillian and Richard are aware of the kidnapper’s activities. Richard is a bit more alert and cautious than Lillian is. You can tell right from the start that he is on alert, she kind of brushes his concerns aside and heads off only to get kidnapped.These girls are so strong in Black Rose. I don’t care if any of them “seem” weaker than another here and there [...]

    19. ***review to follow as part of blog tour*****UPDATE 18 November 2014**I finished this book a couple of days ago, yet waited to formulate my review. I read this book a long time ago in it's fanfiction form, and couldn't wait to see what changes the author made to it.As soon as I started reading, I couldn't put it down. Whilst the story was familiar, I wasn't at all prevented from wanting/needing to carry on, so I could find out what happened. I read a lot of mystery/thriller books, and Black Rose [...]

    20. 4.5 Gripping Stars!"Better to die on my feet than beg on my knees"A CHILLING RIDE!!A real to life abduction story. THIS was more realistic to an actual kidnapping that I've ever read. DON'T go thinking this a dark romance, it's not. A gritty account of what could really happen. A great book for lovers of dark, the details were AMAZINGLY good, but not over the top. This guy was sick to the core crazy. I really wanted inside of his head. I mean, I really wanted inside this head. The author takes y [...]

It was Mystery, Thriller and love story all rolled up into one.It got you with the Amazing Cover Art to the layout of the story.When reading you never see a story from the victims point of view and its amazing to see that kris pulled this off.She has a very strong Heroine here with Lillian Locke down to the amazing other ch [...]

    22. Suspenseful, grippingMan, this book had me turning pages quickly. David is one disturbed individual, collecting girls for his harem for the sole purpose of rape and torture. There's no romance here not even the Stockholm Syndrome kind so be warned, some of the scenes are a bit graphic. Well written in its entirety, this book was a thrilling ride. It slowed a bit at the end and I do kind of feel like everything was tied up in too pretty of a bow for the circumstances but, all in all, riveting. We [...]

    23. I was lucky enough to get an advanced copy of Black Rose, and from the moment I opened it, I was hooked. Kris Thompson weaved an amazing tale, full of raw emotion and gritty details. One of the things I loved the most was how Ms. Thompson didn't sugarcoat it. She was real. She painted a real picture of what Lillian went through. I won't give out any details, but I cannot recommend this book enough! It's amazing, and I look forward to reading more of Kris Thompson's work.

    24. Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for the advance read on this book.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 dont know is the story insideere is so much more.

    25. I am going to be in the minority here i did not get into this book firstly some of the copntent with raping girls while unconscious really is distasteful the story did not go anywhere & found it hard to read.How an author can write such a horrible plot involving women in this way is incomprehensible especially from a woman i wont put myself through this again was a hard read for me

    27. 4.5 starsA story about an abduction, a crazy rapist who enjoys torturing young girls and one couples fight to be with each other again, Black Rose is so much more than what is advertised on the summary. Incorporating all aspects of human emotion, Thompson pulls you into her story from the beginning and leaves you holding your breath for the happy ever after you so desperately want, but fear will never arrive.I was hooked from the very beginning of this story. I am the first to admit I’ve not r [...]

    28. This book wow. I finished it a few days ago and I'm still trying to come to terms with what to write. I'm sure I'll have to edit this later once I've had time to properly take it all in. I might read it again first, which is something I rarely do.I don't like to put spoilers in my reviews, so I don't want to say much about the plot other than the basics. Psycho guy likes to kidnap girls, he takes our main character, Lee, and her adoring (pretty awesome) boyfriend, Richard, does everything he can [...]

I've gotta admit--this books was a lot more intense than I was expecting!I think I have quite mixed feelings regarding this book.  It was very on-the-edge-of-your seat; I read the book in one day because each chapter basically ended as a cliff hanger, and as you know me, I can't stand not knowing what happens next.  I loved the dual POV between Lillian and Richard.  It kept the narration fresh and engaging. I also found their relationship to be sim [...]

    30. I've loved this thriller since Kris first put it out there.Due to the subject matter (which is traumatic) it’s a tough read and people with P.T.S.D might want to avoid it. The pace is fast and the facts of the crime are served up as they might be to a jury. There’s no unnecessary embellishment, but bad things happen in this book. Often, they happen because people make mistakes.Mistakes empower the creepiest villain I’ve read in a while. He’s a veritable psycho who’s smarmy with his vic [...]
