The Angry Man and The Beautiful Rose by S. Sloan is a story about Rachel, a beautiful, independent business owner and artist who seems to have everything. Despite what looks like success, she feels alone and lonely. In steps Jonathan, also a mover and shaker. He’s a handsome, successful investment broker but one thing challenges him: his temper. His temper has caused him to lose his family and the life that he once was accustomed to living. Then he begins dating Rachel and they get married. Will their character flaws bring them closer together or drive them apart? Will their love be enough for each other to overcome their individual challenges? Will Jonathan’s temper causes him to lose Rachel like he lost his family?

This is a nice story and a great piece of work. S. Sloan sets the stage in The Angry Man and The Beautiful Rose during its Prologue where a profound statement is made. When something of beauty comes into our lives, it must be cherished and not taken for granted because one never knows when the essence of that beauty will be taken away. Do not let your negativity or disregard for its purpose cause you to lose it. The Angry Man and The Beautiful Rose is the type of story to make you take a careful look at both yourself and the relationships that you have around you. Whenever two people come together, each comes in carrying their own baggage from self-esteem and insecurity to abuse and anger issues. These imperfect people are trying to make a whole relationship. But in creating that whole, each must examine themselves to determine if the other person that they are seeking is a good fit. This is a great eye-opening story, giving rise to reflection.

A lot of Brothers see the truth in that book and can see themselves in that book like me speaking from experience. But we must have strength to do better that doesn't make you weak it makes us stronger

This book really tells it like it is. Not only from a woman's point of view but also from a man's point of view. Some parts of this book made me laugh until I had tears in my eyes. This is one of those make you stop and think books. I really enjoyed reading this book. I would recommend it to anyone to read. It also covers domestic violence. Real eye opener. Darn good book!

Book Reviews from Barnes

This is such a great book. I really, really enjoyed reading it. This book is about relationships not only between a man and a woman but it deals with relationships with friends and family. The characters in this book come alive in each and every chapter. I can't wait for the movie to come out on this one. I enjoyed this book so much I will be reading it again. Hats off to S. Sloan. I hope to see more books by S.Sloan soon." Anonymous

This book made me stop and think. It deals with a lot more than relationships. This book brings awareness to domestic violence also. I really enjoyed reading this book.
