Wow, Rose is a terrible person. First of all, did it ever occur to her that Scorpius was so heartbroken that his wife had clearly cheated on him that he didn't want to talk about it especially when it involves her brother? Also, Rose says Scorpius is the love of her life and then 2 seconds later agrees to date Rex? sounds like a serious b*tch. I don't care how mad she is at him or that she can't see herself being with him right then, that was just way to quick to jump from, your the love of my life but sorry I'm going to try with this guy instead. That must make Rex feel really special. Rose really doesn't care about other peoples feelings and only blames them for what happens even though all of these problems are her fault!!!
Author's Response: So I see you found me on this site. Finally you leave a review I can actually respond to. Scorpius told her himself he never loved her back in chapter 12, and you would have a valid point if he did love her, but he has pretty straight forward about never loving Lexie as more than a friend, so that is why that thought never occurred to Rose. Now the part about her brother that is a bit of a touchy subject, it is what it is. My personal opinion is that Scorpius could have told her he was married but that she cheated on him, if he had done that then Rose would have been a bit more understanding in the whole he's my brother aspect.
As for Rose I personally believe, from personal experiences, that you can be fully in love with a person and not be with them, because of something that they did, in Rose's case it was a lack of trust. Yes Rose is a hard person to like, and yes she can be inconsiderate at times, but she has never once lied to Scorpius. If he asked a question she gave him a full and honest answer and she feels hurt that he didn't show the same to her. When they were in the bed together, that was Scorpius get out of jail free card and he didn't take the chance. If he had come clean then, when he obviously wasn't as affected by what had happened Rose would have completely understood, she is the queen of not talking about something because she doesn't want to think about it. Scorpius really messed up, Rose has too but this makes them even, something that they haven't been for a very long time. Rose knows full in well that she has owed a lot to Scorpius in the past for what she did to him in Fighting, but she doesn't have that anymore. So that being said she feels that she can try be with Rex. Your right it probably was too fast for her to just go say that to Rex, but at the same time who hasn't done something completely stupid when they were hurt? I mean taking into account the whole thing with Scorpius lying and then her father, I think she feels that Rex will be good for her, and this is something that he and her have been talking about for a while.
Now I'm not going to lie, is it really fair for to hold everything against her because of something she did when she was seventeen years old? Even the most mature seventeen year old in the world would still make mistakes. She doesn't blame other people for her mistakes she is extremely aware of them but Scorpius actions aren't her mistakes, they his and his alone. He should have told her and because he didn't he broke that bond that they had. The trust that she could always know was between them. I am usually Scorpius side through a lot of the beginning chapters of this story but in this one I have to disagree he brought this on himself. He has had four months and countless chances to tell, not to mention he did just sleep with her the night before. Does that really come across as considerate?
