I love this book! I was excited when approached about reading a Shakespeare adaptation. The story is cleverly written and very hot! The tongue-in-cheek humor combined with the pop culture references weaved into the classic tale had me smiling all the way through. All of the familiar characters are there, and many with some fantastic kinky twists. I suppose that if you are a Shakespeare purist then you may not enjoy this book. But think of The Taming of the Shrew, raunchy and hilarious. I can’t help but think that if Shakespeare was still around, he would get a kick out of this sexy and witty adaptation.

” “Oh, Romeo, Romeo, why the hell do you have to be Romeo? And are you gay?”

“No,” a voice whispered from below.

Juliet nearly shrieked but covered her mouth as soon as she realized who it was. She looked down and surely enough, the man of her dreams come to life was standing down there denying rumors of his homosexuality.

“I think my ex-girlfriend started spreading that one around. Also, someone once saw me with all those plastic vibrators and got the wrong idea.”

Juliet laughed. She gripped the edge of the balcony and wished not only that Romeo was inside of her room, but that he was inside of her as well.”

*I received this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
