SUMMARY -Juliet Capulet, the figure of tragic love all over the world, has a mission - Find Romeo and prevent him from breaking up true lovers, and gathering Mercenaries for the enemy. But this time something's different. There's a change in the air - both of the doomed lovers can feel it - and the victim may not be who they think. And with Juliet seeing apparitions and fighting a love that can never come to pass, the mission - to save true love - might be more more deadly than anyone could have guessed.
MY THOUGHTS -Let's start with what I didn't like - the last quarter of the book. What even was that? Kinda creepy, but not well explained. There were a lot of holes that had me shaking my head with confusing. It lost its believability , to, like a quick-fix ending.
BUT. I did really really enjoy the beginning. It startled me, how intense it was. I loved the dynamics between characters and how the story elements brought them together. Ben is by far my favorite character. So sweet, loving and sacrificial. GAH! These scenes with him - all of them - were so great!
But again. The end. It stumped me and I didn't really get to enjoy finishing it.
Since I got the second book for review, I'll read it, and let you guys know what I think. Hopefully it'll be better?
This book reminds me of...
Red dresses (The cover...I cheated)
The cliffs of California that overlook the ocean
Hills of flowers
Self-struggles and fears
The burning flame of love
How much I love the name Benjamin
I don't remember there being much - a few passionate kisses, some language, maybe a few crude references. Recommended 14+
