Book Review ~ Falling for Romeo by Jennifer Laurens

John can have any girl he wants. Jennifer's never been kissed. Everybody thinks he's perfect. She's got issues with pride and jealousy. They were best friends - once. Now, they're playing Romeo and Juliet. Virgin lips Jennifer must have her first kiss on stage with John, the guy every girl in school wants. The pressure and tension build along with each staged kiss. Both are shocked when feelings bloom. Can either tell which kisses are real and which are for show?


This is a hard review to write as it's not going to be very complimentary.

For starters the cover is not very attractive (to me). I wouldn't have even picked it up off the shelf, but had ordered it into the library on a recommendation so didn't see the cover beforehand.

Second, the story was lacking a real twist. I could guess what was going to happen from page one and I didn't like the fact the couple kissed on the first page. No anticipation.

Any tension was pretty mild but as a quick teen read it does hit the mark.

Character wise, I really liked John but found Jenn a bit annoying. In saying all this. The writing was good. Some nice descriptions and turns of phrase.

I would give this 2.5 out of 5 stars.
