The sequel to Love Sprung From Hate, Dark Romeo #1.
The game becomes more deadly as the lies get bigger. Risks will be taken, loyalties will be tested, but will Roman and Julianna take the biggest risk of all…giving into their hearts?

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this is a retelling for mature audiences. Don’t enter the Underworld if you’re scared of the dark.

After how Love Sprung from Hate ended, I have been excited to get my hands on the next book in the Dark Romeo series, to see if Roman and Julianna would be able to get themselves out of the situation they were in. It was exciting, intense and just as sizzling as the first book in the series.

I liked seeing more to Romans life, and that Julianna was able to get to know Roman better as well. She also found herself in a situation that threatened her life that she needed to be rescued from. But each of these moments brought them closer. I liked seeing their relationship grow, but there was always something that would tear them apart. I know these two belong together, but the dangers and circumstances tore them apart.

I felt that this book had that middle book syndrome; it was a little back and forth, where they wanted to act on their feelings, did so, and then would pull back. The connection was definitely there, enough to say that their feelings were solidifying, but the dangers always threw them into jeopardy. I am keen to see where things will go to from here, though, and cannot wait for the final book!

*** Swoon Thursday was first bought to us by YA Bound. Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

I have a few small teasers for you today, you can just see how much Roman loves Julianna.

“She is an angel. I…” he leaned in close, barely inches from Eddie’s face. “I’m no angel. I am the devil made flesh. And I would kill for her.”

“Life is over much too soon,” he said. “If you love him, Julianna, don’t hold it back.”

“I don’t want one more night,” he growled, leaning in so that his chest pressed against my swollen breasts. Dear God, he was everywhere. His scent and his heat rolling over me, his breath against my cheeks, his erection pressed against my belly, making my empty core ache. “I want all of them.”
