Start your review of Romeo Redeemed (Juliet Immortal, #2)

Pretty much everyone knows that I absolutely hated Juliet Immortal. Absolutely hated it. I did not like it in any way, shape or form in any freaking way whatsoever. But becuse I liked Romeo, I decided to pick up this book anyway. While it wasn't stellar, I'm extremely glad that I did. I genuinely enjoyed this one and while I still didn't love it, it was entertaining and I actually found that I was able to like the characters. It was fun although at times
“Romeo, Romeo. Wherefore art thou Romeo? Deny thy father and refuse thy name.”

Epic loves story that points out flaws in one of the most star-crossed couples in history; Romeo Redeemed twisted the original one and filled it with love.

Romeo Redeemed picks up where Juliet Immortal left off. Setting in an alternative reality, this time Romeo takes the center stage, a lost lover who must save his soul from sins. We have already met Ariel in last book, whose body Juliet took over to accomplish he

What possessed me to read this book, I have no idea. Maybe I have high hopes for humanity. Or maybe I'm a masochist or just plain stupid. I can never tell.

Stacey Jay is one of my favorite authors, so don't go around yelling, "OMG! Hater in da hawz!" or else, I will punch you. Hard. Ok? So violence aside, I REALLY HATE this book. I felt betrayed and somehow tricked!

To give you a better understanding, this is what it felt like:

I really enjoyed this story. Maybe more than the first book. This time Romeo wants to make things right and wants to save Ariel. I liked this series.

Romeo Redeemed picks right after Juliet Immortal.

This is Romeo's story, and this is his chance to redeem himself, of all the wrongdoings he commited as a member of the mercenaries...for those of you, who haven't read the first book, i will try to keep the explanations to a minimum. Imagine, that love, just like power, and money, is one of the greatest forces of the great, that the loss of a single (but always important ) soul to the mercenaries,

Romeo truly believed he was doing Juliet a kindness when he decided to trick her into killing herself. He chose to grant her death instead of letting her live in poverty, shame, and exile with him. His actions, though wrong and evil, were born out of desperation, and he believed the friar’s lies that when Juliet died she would live a happy life in heaven. Romeo never thought Juliet’s soul would be tainted by so much anger and rage that she would never be at peace. Juliet’s pain and hate were th ...more

There's one good thing about my waiting to read Juliet Immortal, and that was being able to read both of these book back to back. Picking up immediately after Juliet Immortal ends, Romeo Redeemed lives up to it's seductive nature. I mean look at that cover.... Romeo is definitely not at all who I thought I had figured him out to be. He's much more complex, and intense. I loved the side of Romeo I got in this story.

Much like Ariel was, I found myself drawn to his vulnerability and that hidden re
In this wonderful sequel to Juliet Immortal, Romeo has a chance to redeem himself by making Ariel fall in love with him. We find Romeo trying to redeem himself for the things he has done. He works so hard to become the good person that Ariel wants him to be and I value that he tries and even succeeds. Whether or not, Romeo deserved it all in Juliet Immortal, I find him so vulnerable and broken that he understands that nothing will work out for him until he falls in love.

This book was amazing! It did funny things to my heart. I really enjoyed Juliet Immortal, but one of my favourite things about it was Romeo, even though he was the villain in the first book. He was clearly a tortured soul, and they make the absolute best love interests! So I knew I would enjoy this one even more, and I did.

At first Romeo's assignment was just to make Ariel believe in love. It didnt matter whether or not he loved her

I think Stacey Jay put an interesting spin on your Shakespearean classic, but I honestly think she should have stopped after book 1.

While this book gave us a little more insight on Romeo and redeems him from our hatred, as well as gives us an explanation of how he came to be with Rosaline at the end of book 1, I think this book was inconsistent with a lot of what happened in the first book.

I am not usually one for covers with people kissing on them, but the colors on this cover just draw you in. Just like Juliet Immortal (the first book of this series), I would have picked up the book based on cover alone. I know they say not to judge a book by its cover, but its the first impression, and I like the first impression Romeo had on me.

This book was terrible. Gouge out my eyes and throw them at the main characters horrible. The characters aren't well-written; I loathe them and I actually want the main female lead to drown in moldy cake and sour milk. The writing is atrocious, I don't care about the plot and I hate despise the characters.

Ariel is in the top three worst main characters I've ever read in my life. She's whiny, needy, bipolar, dense and has no self esteem. She thinks she's ugly all the

Romeo has made a lot of mistakes. But he’s finally trying to atone for them by joining the side of the Ambassadors of Light. His mission? He must inhabit Dylan Stroud’s body and make Ariel Dragland fall in love with him…in three days. To make matters worse, Ariel hates Dylan. He made a bet with his friends that he could convince the school “Freak” to sleep with him and she very nearly fell for it. Romeo finds himself transported to Dylan’s

I think this is a great book if you love good and evil, love and hate. Definitely pairs really well with Juliet Immortal. RTC.

I picked this book up because I'd loved the idea of the first book in the duology, Juliet Immortal, and even though I had some reservations about the actual execution of the book I wanted to see what the author did with the sequel.

Like Juliet Immortal, this was an okay book. And like Juliet Immortal, this one left me feeling like some vital facts were being withheld from me. I'm now starting to think that this is just the author's style of writing, so I don't thin

Although Juliet Immortal has apparently not been especially popular with bloggers, I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the book.

I liked this book a lot although not as much as "Juliet Immortal."

This book is told in two pov's~ Romeo's and Ariel's. Ariel is the girl that Juliet took over in Juliet Immortal. This time Ariel is herself and not Juliet.

The main plot of the book is that Romeo is given a second chance and a chance to become an ambassador. He switched sides to good to save hi soul. His mission is to get Ariel to believe in love and to turn to the light side. Ariel is important in the war between Ambassadors and

really an amazing story. This is the second book and I'm still absolutely blown away with Stacey Jay's imagination and incredible writing - that can turn an ordinary story that we all know (Romeo & Juliet) and give it such a unique and original twist.

it is falling in love all over again.

That ending was so perfect, oh my gosh.

Look, this isn't a good book. The ending is profoundly stupid. But I enjoyed it more than book 1, mostly because Romeo is much more self aware and therefore more interesting than Juliet. The author was also wise to focus on Ariel, who got super screwed over in the first book. Still, that ending. Ugh.

I don't really have much to say about this one. I liked it; it was definitely more intriguing than Juliet's story, in my opinion. However there were a lot of questions left unanswered at the end.

I really fell in love with Juliet Immortal when I picked it up a couple of months ago and honestly could not wait to get my hands on Romeo Redeemed. Truth be told the book did not let me down. Actually I think that in the end I enjoyed this book a little more than I did Juliet Immortal. When I started this book I did have a general idea of what to expect but I did find myself surprised a couple of times. The book basically starts off where Juliet Immortal ended.

I love the feeling you get after just finishing an exciting that book that ended on a high. That's why I thought I'd better review this a.s.a.p. before the buzz leaves me and I feel depressed because the series is over.

Romeo Redeemed was just as beautiful as Juliet Immortal, and filled with just as much - if not even more - drama, action, romance and twice as much adrenaline. It was beautiful, and I loved it - despite the fact that if you ask me in six months whether I loved a book based on Rome

Last year I fell in love with Juliet Immortal and so when I heard the author was releasing a sequel told from Romeo's point of view, I was extremely excited. I wanted to get into Romeo's head more and get his side of the story but while I enjoyed Romeo Redeemed, I didn't love it as much as the first book.

This time around we see Romeo living out his eternity alone and slowly rotting away. He killed the love of his life, Juliet and now he's paying for it. Well that is until he's given an opportuni

Romeo Redeemed is absolutely awesome. Stacey Jay took me on the most amazing and twisted rollercoaster ride in this conclusion to the Juliet Immortal series. All I could do was hold my breath and hang on. Jay has taken Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet and turned it into a masterpiece for today’s readers. She’s also given Romeo a personality that I always imagined he'd have, and that I finally got to see in Jay's version of Romeo. I love that Jay wrote a novel that answered the questions I've alway ...more

I think the romance was the highest point of this book. Romeo loved Ariel in a way he could never love Juliet, and to be honest - I liked Ariel a lot more then Juliet. We got a new point of view from both Romeo and Juliet, getting some insight into Romeo's... uh, past. There WAS in

Romeo is cursed to spend eternity in his rotten, stinking corpse – his punishment for defying the Mercenaries. But he is offered a chance at redemption by an Ambassador. All he has to do is make Ariel Dragland fall in love with him.

As the world’s most famous lover, Romeo believes this will be his easiest assignment ever, and his reward is just around the corner. But Ariel herself has a dark side, and if Romeo cannot bring her into the light and make her love him, then the scales will be tipped
