Tropes: 24

The second book, Waiting for Romeo suffers from the same issues as the first book. A "perfect" heroine. A hero who is barely a character, since his purpose is to tell the heroine how perfect she is, and how she changed his life. It continues with the slut-shaming. (view spoiler) It adds some tropes as for the new adult genre, making the story even less original and even more bland. Apart

Love love love....... That absolutely sums up this book. After waiting (impatiently) for the continuation of Logan and Emilia's story, there are no more doubts left in my mind of Logan's intent. He is by far the sweetest guy ever!!!

After the cliffhanger ending on Running from Romeo, Waiting for Romeo gives further explanation of why the characters act as they are. I really like that even if it is very obvious how tight and deeply involved Logan and Emilia are with each other, the friendships tha

4.5 Stars!!!

I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review!!!

I loved the beginning of the book, OMG Logan was amazing, he actually slipped into her bed in her father's house! Hahaha sooo funny.... It was the perfect scene after the traumatic heartbreak I felt from the ending of the first book... It was so full of emotions and surprising moments. I really like reading comedy in this type of books, it makes the reading more appealing and enjoyable, and this definitely was a prove of it...

This is the follow up book to Running from Romeo and I was anxiously awaiting this book’s release. The first book ended on an unexpected cliffhanger that had me going W.T.F. I really fell victim to Logan & Emilia’s love story and loved watching their story unfold from the very first time they saw one another. However, that cliffhanger had me reeling! I hated it because it crushed me just as it crushed Emilia. When it ended, Emilia was heartbroken and Logan was begging for forgiveness.

I was very fortunate to be introduced to this series and amazing author by Irresistible Reads Book Tour. I am sure if I never participated in the blog tour I would have still discovered this series on my own thanks tot the magic of Goodreads, but I would have missed out on the opportunity to have work with Diane so much, and I wouldn't trade that for the world.

Book 1 ends on a heart wrenching cliff hanger. I don't want to go into too much detail for those of you discovering this series for the

Detailed Review: I loved this book to bits! It was so romantic and funny at the same time. What with the romance between Logan and Emilia and the action that kept jumping out of the dark of the most unexpected of times- this book made me light-headed. I found that I couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

I think the beauty of the book stemmed from the characters themselves. Emilia is a great heroine who has grown stronger thro

Emilia has had a lot happen to her in her life and more continues to happen to her. Its her senior year, she's been hurt by the one man she gave her heart to. She is now working to pick up the pieces and move on with her life, though Logan has another plan. He spends all the time he can getting to see he is really sorry and will do anything to get her back. Can Emilia learn to trust Logan again or are they better off apart?

This book blew me away just like the first one did. The first book, Runni

“Parting is such sweet sorrow..."

Yes, that sums my feeling after reading this sequel. My heart is still with Romeo.

This book really brings so much emotions. I can't even think of words to describe how much i love this second book.
Here are some that i can give:
- because of the Shakespearean vibe and quotes. <3 <3
- the music and bands that match the scenes.
-The sweet conversations Logan and Emilia have. These two are just so adorable!
- Bryn, Chloe - I wish i could have girlfriends like
Let's be honest, if he had gone further than the lap dance I doubt I would be singing his praises right now..

He really truly redeems himself in this book in my eyes. He clears up his act getting rid of the two foul S's in his life along with drugs, and really shows that he is willing to do whatever it takes to get her back.

Great book, if you stopped at

Waiting For Romeo is the sequel to the deliciously intoxicating Running From Romeo. I've been anxiously awaiting this book since I devoured it's predecessor. And I wondered, could Diane deliver a sequel as good as the first? The answer? Diane definitely can.

In, the first book we get a very real look into the mind of a survivor. This book is no different. However it focuses less on what Emilia's overcome and, rather, how she continues to move on.

Emilia, as always, is a wonderful character. She's

**Waiting for Romeo is the follow up to Running from Romeo by Diane Mannino. Book 1 should be read before Book 2.**

When we left Emilia and Logan, life was a huge cluster. It was not looking good for our hero and heroine. Needless to say, as soon as I was done with Running from Romeo I immediately started reading Waiting for Romeo. I’m so glad that I did because the book brings us up to speed on what has happened with our heartbroken characters.

I enjoyed watching Emilia and Logan figure out how t

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review! When I first started to read this sequel I wanted to hate Logan. After reading Running From Romeo I was heart broken for Emilia and I was worried that she would let Logan right back in. I love that in this book she stood up for herself and makes Logan work for her trust.

Logan surprised me in this book. He had such sweet words and love for Emilia. I couldn't hate him even if I tried.

Towards the middle of the book I thought I had figured out w

Well once again I loved the characters and I enjoyed the story more this time. The book is much shorter and there is no cliffhanger but I can see there being a third book. I would even like to read a third book about the gang. My issue with the first book and all the lyrics is gone. There are some lyrics but not full or half songs that I had to read. There is a faster pace so it doesn't feel like it is dragging on and that I like. I really enjoyed this one and hope to read more from Ms. Mannino ...more

Once again Mannino weaves a story that intrigued me from the start. The characters I fell in love with in Running from Romeo, continued to develop in a way that made me intrigued even more. The novel has a bit of everything. Of course the love story is what entices the reader the most, but their romance is set against a backdrop of secrets, the past, and a bit of mystery and suspense. Waiting for Romeo is such an enjoyable read that I am so hopeful to see where the story may lead in book #3. I d ...more

I expected a little bit more of Logan's background story since the first book kind of built up to it. I also felt like everything wasn't explained and revealed. Emilia's traumatic past is used as the base and bomb for this book and in some way I thought it was okay, but I was more interested in Logan's luggage because it seemed like there could be more to it and developed into an interesting storyline.

Overall I thought it wasn't that long as I thought the first book was. Nothing was really repe

Since I had finished Running from Romeo, all I ever want to do was to read the sequel. When I received the review copy, I immediately sent it to my Kindle and started reading it right away. I didn't stop till I was finished. See? I'm that hooked!

I received Waiting for Romeo through Irresistible Reads in exchange for an honest review.

I'm happy to report that some of the things that bothered me about Running from Romeo aren't an issue in Waiting for Romeo. This is a shorter book, which is a good thing. It allows for a tighter, faster-paced story with less repetition. Running from Romeo dragged for a good portion of the book; Waiting for Romeo doesn't. Something is always happening, and there's a lot of action near the end of the book inv

I reviewed this at MustReadBooksOrDie with my friend Shelley!

Court: We read the first book by Diane, Running From Romeo, last year and generally had mixed feelings about it. And while I did like Waiting For Romeo better overall than the first book...I still am not in the place I was expecting once I was finished. Shel: Agreed, Courtney.

Running From Romeo ended in a cliffhanger so I was curious to see what would happen in this book.
I liked Logan a lot more in this book. He was determined to get Emilia back and was willing to fight for her. Even though he knew he had made several mistakes he still managed to be sweet and do wonderful things for Emilia.
And Emilia certainly deserves to be treated right by a guy like Logan.
I really liked Bryn in this book as well. She becomes a better character and is always there for Emilia.

As I said in book 1 - way too many similarities to Fifty Shades and also a bit of Beautiful Disaster. The book was good but the ending to me was left hanging. There was no Epilogue to see what happened or no mention or closure to know if they caught Sebastian or the professor. The ending was too much focused on the hospital in a coma but what the hell happened to the professor and wasnt Sebastian asking her for money and told her he would find her again. No mention on what happened to Chloe outs ...more
