Sometimes the book gods are smiling on me when I m introduced to a new author To think that this is the first book by Helen Bell is just astonishing This is one of the best books I ve read this year I absolutely adored the main character, Emma She s this shy and closed off college girl that has a super sharp tongue and she will flay you with a simple sentence Well, she would if she weren t terrified You get to go on this journey of self awareness and discovery with Emma as she learns to trust ot [...]

    2. 2.5 some spoilers I didn t really understand the chemistry between the two MCs It seemed like all of a sudden this guy just likes her For no reason that I could see I did enjoy how Emma gains her confidence and that it wasn t because a hot guy likes her Ryan would confront her with truths that helped change her viewpoint Emma seemed a bit flat and monotonous emotionally but she was of a real person to me as opposed toRyan Super caliente college student that made his millions before 19, major so [...]

    3. I usually add books to read because the blurb is interesting, but it often happens that when I finally read them, they don t live up to my expectations This book was different, though A Rose by Any Other Name is a contemporary romance book who is told from the perspective of Emma Winstead, a sopho at University who is really clumsy that she often bumps into people by accident, including Ryan Damon, a popular guy in the campus because he is the son of a famous actor who was killed along with his [...]

    5. how kill a book write a good history then rush the end and trought some silly line about You are better without me.pity

    6. Read this entire book without feeling much of a connection to either main character I liked Emma okay, but she wasn t a person I d want to know I thought Ryan was a total prick at the beginning of the story He improved as it went along, but I really felt the connection between the two was forced It did seem to me like he was treating her as a charity case, not as someone he was in love with I also felt that there were too many story lines going on, but yet it still dragged at times I did have to [...]

    7. Overall this book was really good I wasn t as engrossed in the beginning but as I got a little further into the book I just had to keep reading Honestly in the beginning I was confused but don t worry, as you keep reading everything is explained and you just want to keep reading to see what happens The main character Emma is especially relatable and real Be warned that as you get to the end you cannot put it down because things get a little crazy.

    8. Thank you to the author for supplying a copy of this book Here is my honest review For those of you thinking that A Rose By Any Other Name is just another NA romance book, you would be sorely mistaken I went into this book thinking just that, and I was both shocked and pleased that it turned out to be a really unexpected and different story Sopho Emma is not your typical college girl She s shy, quiet and thinks she is invisible to those around her, aside from her small group of friends When she [...]

Title A Rose By Any Other NameSeries StandaloneAuthor Helen BellHEA view spoiler Yes hide spoiler Rating 4.25 Stars It was just too bad for her that after I was done with her, she d end up soulless Like me The book was almost everything I usually look for in a collage romance and I enjoyed it a lot Also, love the title a lot, and how it connects to the story.Emma At first I wasn t sure about her, because I thought she ll be a weak heroine, a damsel in distress, afraid to express her opinion but [...]

    10. Ok, I gotta be really sincere here The first chapters of the book made me cringe times than I can count I mean, Emma please how clumsy can you get Her lack of maturity made me think I was reading a bad YA book instead of a NA But that s just the beauty of it I am ashamed to say I did think of stopping and not reading it any and I m so SO glad I just kept going This is one of those rare books where you can really see the characters grow up I think we ve all been through traumatic events some t [...]

    11. This new adult romance follows Emma, a girl lacking confidence due to trauma from her past, and Ryan, a young millionaire with a few dark secrets of his own The plot begins as you would expect from a romance between two college aged kids, and rapidly spirals into and drama as the backstories are revealed I thought Emma and Ryan had great chemistry together The author uses some higher diction, and the actions of the characters are well explained so the reader understands why everyone does what [...]

    15. Where to begin This book had me from the start The first chapter captures you by foreshadowing what is going to happen later in the story with Ryan We meet Emma, who is super clumsy, shy , and has no confidence, unless she gets angry Being a computer science major she gets a job coding a new martial arts website for a very cocky, cold hearted, anti relationship, but extremely handsome man, Ryan As Ryan and Emma spend time together Ryan and Emma bond over troubled pasts with Ryan losing his fami [...]

    18. Well i thoroughly enjoyed this book It was slap bang amazing The characters were very relatable, the plot thickened perfectly as you went on and it never got to the point of ridiculous which you can sometimes find in books It was all very realistic in terms of the storyline.I have to say the main protagonists really were thought out and written well, they showcased the vulnerable side to people, but also an edge that kept you hooked.I will definately be reading this again, and although i m a suc [...]

    19. I really was surprised by this book.It a debut and it was written quite well.The story was what i really likeda quite herione and a badboy sexy hero was perfect combo.And to add the twists there were many elements and suspense in the story and i liked it.It was a gradual process and not a insta love.Yes at times there were a few predictable moments like H saving h at times of need,but it just made them closerI really hope there are books in this series ,cos i really like Hannah and Ray s cousi [...]

    20. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review so here it is This book starts like any other classic love story A rich boy meets an uninteresting girl but falls for her eventually but this book is much than that it has many layers and reminded me a little of beautiful disaster in a good way it is sweet, has just enough angst and drama I liked both the lead characters It is a very satisfying read.

    21. I love a good strong and boy character that saves a damsel in distress This book has it all Ryan is clearly a man that knows what he wants and Emma is so sweet and innocent that you just want her for Ryan She seems to always be getting into trouble and he is there to save her I have never read a book from Ms Bell but she will definitely be on my favorite authors page I loved this book The writing was wonderful and made me read the whole book in one sitting.

    22. I received this book in return for an honest review.3.5 starsI have to say, it took me a few days to read thru the first few chapters I just wasn t too interested in the story line Once I got thru that, I actually really enjoyed the book and went to bed after 2am so I could finish the rest if it There are a few parts in the story that are a little unbelievable, but it is fiction, right It definitely kept me wanting or I would ve gone to bed at a reasonable time.

    23. Love this book I couldn t put it down love Emma and Ryan the start love the way they surpassed their passe and the way can feel emotion thru the book is is a must read book hurry and buy this book you won t regret
