He’s been in enough fights to know that the Capulets aren’t worth his time or energy. Until one night, he sees a girl and is immediately drawn to her. He doesn’t know who she is, but he can’t deny the pull.
Jewel Capulet has been left orphaned and has been sent to Verona to live her with uncle and his family. She’s not like the Capulet’s that everyone knows, and when she sees Roman Montague, she can’t fight her attraction. The two fall instantly in love and make plans for a life away from Verona. But one accident changes everything and changes the course of their lives forever.
I’m so thankful that Isla reached out to me and asked if I was interested in reading her debut novel. This book is the modern-day version of Romeo and Juliet, and Isla Cristeon absolutely killed it! From page one I was drawn in and I couldn’t put the book down. I needed to know how this book would play out. She keeps so true to the original story but has added a modern touch that adds even more to it.
The characters, the insta-love, the back story, every part of this book was beautifully written and thought out. I don’t want to spoil anything, but this book has an ending that will blow your mind, and leave you begging for more. I can’t wait to read more from Isla because she wrote this story like a seasoned vet. I can’t wait to read more from this series and from Isla.
