"All will be revealed for fans who have breathlessly awaited the sizzling sequel to Juliet Immortal. This time Romeo takes center stage and gets one chance, and one chance only, to redeem himself.
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."

As you can tell, I have been reading lots of sequels. And this is another sequel I was dying to read. For me Juliet Immortal has a great twist on a classic story. And with the way that it ended, I just had to read the next  book.

So, did I enjoy this book? Yes. Was it what I was exciting? No. The plot of the book starts off with Romeo desperately trying to undo what he did. The reader was left with a bitter taste in their mouth in then last book with what Romeo did. If he was going to prove me wrong, he must get down on his knees and beg for mercy! Romeo did a rather good job inn changing who he is. His heart is on the right place with wanting to undo his mistakes. In that, Romeo is set back in time to help a girl. A girl who he had no intention of falling in love with but use just to get redeemed. Grrr...Romeo...

With that said, Romeo finally falls in love. Not a lustful love but a real "I love you so much it hurts" love. He learns what loves truly is. It's selfless. It's pure beyond anything he can imagine. He ends up setting himself aside just to save her. To make sure that she is taken care before he is. It took a while for the reader, to see Romeo this way. In the beginning, even though he got the second chance, Romeo is still selfish. All he thought was about himself. Soon, the reader see Romeo changing in a new light.

Both Juliet and Romeo learn more about why thing had happen to them. The secrets are out of the bag and both have a new beginning. It's nice that the author gave such a good ending to an action-packed book.

Romeo Redeemed is a great book! This undeniably sweet story, reveals the real heart of Romeo. Written well with a refreshing twist on the story, Romeo Redeemed is a book you want to read.

I give it 4 BITES!

Happy Reading!


  1. I though Juliet Immortal was ok, but wasn't really planning on reading the sequel. I really hated Romeo, but I think I'll give a try because of your review.

  2. I really should pick this series up my pile. Grats on being feature!
