Présentation de l'éditeur

"You will be rooting for the underdog, the unwilling participant as you read Scent of Roses to the very end"

"I really enjoyed this book... I find the concept of heroes in pursuit captivating"

"A sweet love story done in a way that you are sucked in... loved it... I thought it was great."

"How do you help a man you are starting to love, and pick the right woman for him when you're no longer in the running?... a fantastic job on the story. It is both engaging and endearing."

They swore they would only be friends... Until one of them broke their pact and fell in love

I don't like reality television. In fact, I hate it.

But then my friend, Sarah arranges a blind date. Imagine my shock when I discover that it is a documentary akin to The Bachelor. I was determined to sign out, quit.

And then I discover the bachelor isn’t too keen on being the bachelor either. He needs an insider on the show, an advisor on the right woman for him. And I need a free trip to France. This was supposed to be a win-win situation. After all, I had laid down my rules. There was never going to be romance involved. And we were only ever going to be friends.

I mean, I didn't want love complicating our relationship. I needed to be real. He was rich and I was... well, not. When did fairy tales like that come true?

But now, I’m wondering- had I laid my rules down too fast? Why did it hurt that I was no longer in the running to be the right woman for Dante Dimitriou?

Ever wonder what it is like behind the scenes of "The Bachelor"? What happens when he decides which woman he wants on day one and has to keep with up the show for three months? Come inside this book and get ready to smell the roses...

The last thing Zoe thought she was getting into when she agreed to go on by blind date was ending up on a documentary about dating. After meeting the man, he infuriates her and she can't wait to walk away. But a forged agreement from her friend forces her to stay on and the longer she is there, the more she tries to force herself to feel for anyone but him.

As soon as Dante walks into the room, he spots Zoe. She is so different from all the other women there, how could she not. And when she throws attitude at him whenever possible, Dante knows he has met his match and can't wait to see how their relationship develops.

As production continues both Zoe and Dante are forced to hide their growing affections from others and each other for the sake of the show. As things ramp up with the show, emotions come to a head. Will they be able to admit how they feel for each other and let everything else go or will it all be just too much?

I really liked this book. I am not a huge fan of the bachelor series but this was a really cute behind the scenes take on it. It is a slow build to a sweet love story done in a way that you are sucked in and immediately rooting for the characters to stop fighting each other and just get together already.

My thoughts:

Quick hook or slow starter? 5 (I was hooked from the first chapter)
Character development: 4
Level of Romance between characters: 4.5
Passion/Heat level: 4 (chemistry between these two is pretty instant but they spend most of the story fight it and each other.)
Angst/Heartbreak: 4 (did I mention they fight their feelings for most of the book?)
Cliffhanger?: Nope, this is a nice refreshing stand alone.

Overall, I loved it. My only complaint is I would have liked a little more heat to the love scenes...that would have made this a 5 star read for me but other than that, I thought it was great.

I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Initial Try 31 mars 2014

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I loved the premise of this story and really enjoyed how it immitated a popular television show only with behind the scenes points of view. The pace of the book felt a little slow to me and the scene in which the main characters finally get together felt a little rushed together. All of the chemistry that was between them throughout the rest of the story was lacking when they finally made love. There were parts of the story that felt like filler because they added nothing to the story and the editing leaves a lot to be desired. It was a very entertaining, quick read and I would hope that Clarissa keeps writing similar stories, improving with each attempt.

Clarissa Cartarn never fails to excite with her books! Her next romance novel, Scent of Roses will take you on an unexpected journey into the world of reality television. I have to however warn you that if you think it is going to be predictable and boring, you will be in for a surprise!
I found the two main characters interesting and diverse. The author developed the plot of the book beautifully,she pulls you into the whole drama of Dante and Zoe! You will definately not be able to pull yourself away from this one.
The only critisism I have is that it was all over too soon, I want more... So maybe, my advise would be to not read it in one sitting, but rather stretch the pleasure out! So in other words, delay your romance gratification!

Cartharn does it again with a lovely romance.

I’ve read this author’s work before and like her style of romance writing. 'Scent of Roses' is well rounded with loveable characters, great descriptions of places, and emotions, and an entertaining, satisfying conclusion.
I enjoyed the character Dante very much. He’s just so sweet and yet endearingly needs a shake when it comes to ‘getting his girl’. The story is so believable. We see the type of TV show where this story is set, all the time, and here’s a 'behind the scenes' of just such a show story, that could happen. It’s a teasing, chase romance with steamy kisses when the two main characters do get together at intervals. A page-turner, because you so want the two to end up together too. I loved this story, and can recommend it for a nice read over a few lazy afternoons, five stars.

Thank you so much to the author (Clarissa Cartharn) for gifting me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Just so you can get a better understanding, this book is like the PG-13 version of The Selection condensed into one book and in the modern world. I now see why Kiera Cass wanted to pull The Selection out into a trilogy. I feel like this book would have been better as a duology. It ended rather abruptly in my opinion (it felt like the author looked at the page count all of a sudden and said "oops I already went over my limit time to wrap it up!") and Jennifer and Alicia's role's (kind of like Celeste in The Selection) were a little downplayed.

At the end, I thought there was a bit too much back and forth between if Zoe loved Dante or not. I wish there would have been more of a dialogue inside Zoe's head as she accepted Dante's offer for real.

Other than those things, I absolutely loved it! I know I've been comparing it to The Selection in this review but it actually is it's own book and I wasn't thinking of The Selection when I was reading it. It really is quite unique.

I also loved the multiple POV's. I think they were done very well and you always knew whose head you were in at the moment. It was mostly limited to Dante and Zoe but sometimes Jennifer and other characters had brief sections.

Final Verdict:

This book is a definite page-turner mostly focused on romance. While it could have been turned into a duology, it's good as is. The POV's were amazing but the ending was a bit abrupt. Overall, I absolutely loved it and was engrossed from page 1.
