Seductive companion to the popular Juliet Immortal, in which former lovers—Romeo and Juliet—meet, not as true lovers, but truly as enemies.

Cursed to live out eternity in his rotted corpse, Romeo, known for his ruthless, cutthroat ways, is given the chance to redeem himself by traveling back in time to save the life of Ariel Dragland. Unbeknownst to her, Ariel is important to both the evil Mercenaries and the love-promoting Ambassadors and holds the fate of the world in her hands. Romeo must win her heart and make her believe in love, turning her away from her darker potential before his work is discovered by the Mercenaries. While his seduction begins as yet another lie, it soon becomes his only truth. Romeo vows to protect Ariel from harm, and do whatever it takes to win her heart and soul. But when Ariel is led to believe his love is a deception, she becomes vulnerable to Mercenary manipulation, and her own inner darkness may ultimately rip them apart.

5 Stars

WOW! WOW! WOW! How do people function normally? I forgot. This book. THIS BOOK! I know that this is now my THIRD Stacey Jay fangirly review but WOW! THIS BOOK WAS AMAZING! WOW.

THIS BOOK IS WONDERFUL! It’s the sequel to Juliet Immortal and while there are similarities, these two books are completely different which I loved; it takes place in a different reality (slightly confusing) than the first book and Romeo is given a chance to…. redeem himself. Redeem himself he (spoiler). Oh this book, oh my heart, this book was amazing. While Juliet Immortal was like a quick meal, this book was like a steak and ribs dinner, the kind where you have to breathe in order to fully comprehend it all. It’s told through two POVs and I honestly couldn’t decide which one I liked more; they were both SO necessary and all sorts of wonderful. Stacey Jay did a wonderful job of completing this series and it was bittersweet when it ended, I became attached to these characters and I couldn’t be happier with either of these books. I could go on and on about this series but I just think you should read it. IT’LL KEEP YOU ON THE EDGE OF YOUR SEAT BECAUSE IT’S WONDERFUL. That is all.

*gives stamp of approval*

Sorry for the short review, I would have spoiled things or just kept repeating myself. Have a great Saturday!
