Romeo Redeemed by Stacey Jay

Friday, October 5, 2012
SYNOPSIS: 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.
REVIEW: Everyone knows the story of Romeo and Juliet, but it has never been told like this. Jay brings to life the story many of us know so well and takes a unique approach at retelling this classic that has won so many hearts, including my own. Romeo Redeemed is the sequel to Juliet Immortal, I was a bit apprehensive in reading it since I haven’t read the first book. However, I am so glad I did. From beginning to end, this book captivated me entirely and I could not stop reading it. In this story, Romeo spends the rest of his days rotting away, thinking about how he made of mess of his life and how he betrayed Juliet. And spends his time just thinking what if’ he would have done things differently. When Romeo is offered the chance to redeem himself, he jumps at the opportunity. He knows what he must do in order to live another life, one opposite to the life in a rotting corpse. What Romeo does not expect is a change of heart and falling in love with someone other than Juliet. He thought he knew what love was until he met Ariel and now he is willing to do whatever it takes to not mess it up again. In this telling tell, you follow Romeo on a journey of finding himself and true love. I recommend this book to anyone who loves the classic love story yet wanting a different ending. Romeo Redeemed will not disappoint.
