[Review] Stealing Rose by Monica Murphy

People say the youngest child has it easy, but nothing can be further from the truth. Unlike my two sisters, Violet and Lily, I’m never in the limelight. I just work my butt off for Fleur Cosmetics and get little to no thanks for it. I’ve been pushed too far one too many times, and I’m finally brave enough to do something about it.

Maybe my newfound courage has something to do with the amazing pink and white diamond necklace I wear to the party in Cannes. The instant those dazzling heirloom jewels touch my skin, they excite some deep, aching need inside. And when that guy—that totally gorgeous guy—locks eyes with me, I know this nice girl is going to be naughty.

For once it’s my turn. My turn to say no to my father, to outshine my sisters, to walk away from it all—straight into the arms of a mysterious stranger. But what if Caden is much more than I bargained for? Sure, he makes me feel sexy and free in a way I never have before, but there’s something else I can’t quite place—something dangerous. Maybe our “chance” meeting wasn’t so random. Maybe he was looking for me for a reason. Whatever his motive, there’s no going back now.

And maybe I don’t want to.

**Book received in exchange for an honest review**

Been reading this for a while and i'm enjoying it, but it's not clinging to me.
I'm not waking up and grabbing my kindle. It's very similar to Owning Violet, in my eyes.

It has taken me from the end of October, until now to finish this *covers face* The last 30% hooked me completely and I was super excited to see how their shit went down. But the rest, was still very much the same as Owning Violet.
After Cannes and the life story on Violet & Rose's grandmother, Rose lays low in London. However the mysterious Caden who left her naked at the side of a swimming pool after kissing her, has showed back up and they begin their un realistic relationship, while Caden is trying to not steal the Poppy Necklace that is already in his backpack.
There is a lot of sex.... like a lot, but i'm glad that Monica backs that up with genuine feelings for each other. You can feel the fact they care for each other and it's not just a quick roll in the haystack.
Everything is flying high in the sky until they both have to face reality and head back to America, Caden taking the cowards way out.
Back in NYC, life doesn't get easier for Rose either and we discover how she starts her own, new path.
If the book didn't reflect OV as much and had a bit mor individuality, it would be great.
