Roses have some exacting growing requirements and if they don't receive them, they just won't bloom. First, they need lots of sunshine - 8 hours or more. They also require an inch of water per week and will not flower if they get too much nitrogen fertilizer. If your rose is planted near a lawn that you regularly feed, it could be getting too much nitrogen. Some roses are early bloomers and won't flower after June, regardless of their care. My only suggestion is to make sure your rose is getting adequate sunlight and hold off on fertilizer to see if that makes a difference. If not, you may want to replace your rose with one that will perform better in your garden. Good luck with your rose!
