I loved reading another story at the Oasis. It was so sweet that Juliette fell in love with Romeo when he rescued her where she was six and he was ten. Life doesn’t always go the way you want as Juliette finds out. Juliette and her brother Jared were raised by their grandparents. Romeo was raised by his father. Juliette and Romeo were close until her 18th birthday.

It is over ten years later, Juliette is working at the Oasis, still in love with Romeo, and has no one special in her life. I felt b

I have enjoyed each book in the Steamy Weekends series, but I think Resisting Romeo is my favorite!

Juliette and Romeo have known one another since she was six and he was ten. He rescued her from a hay maze when her older brother left her to run off with his girlfriend, who was also ten! Romeo and Juliette's brother, Jared, became best friends, but so did Romeo and Juliette. Not only was he her best friend, but Romeo was also Juliette's first crush and first love. She wanted him to be her first i

This dynamic duo gives the reader another winner in this series.
The story of Juliette Pierce and Romeo Whitehall is at times heartbreaking and at others heartwarming.
They met when they were kids. She was 5 , he was 10. She fell in love with the boy that took her hand and rescued her. He was always protective of her.
But the day she turned 18 she declared her love, and he turned her away. Or so she thought.
Now 12 years after, she is still a virgin, still hurt, and will be facing him after all the

Resisting Romeo is the third novel in the Steamy Weekends series by Melanie Shawn. It is such a fun read and defintely a story I have looked forward to since reading Liam's book previously.

Juliette is your standard type-A assistant who kills it at her job. Workaholic for sure and basically helps Liam operate his life and business effeciently. But really there is so much more to Juliette.

Romeo was the drummer for the world famous band Valentine. But when the band breaks up Romeo has some amends

Romeo is a world famous musician and Juliette is a type A personality office manager.

Romeo and Juliette have known each other since they were kids. Romeo’s inability to admit how he feels has kept them apart for the last decade, but he’s now ready to admit his feelings and fight for Juliette.

This is a hot HEA Romance with steamy love scenes that was an easy read and have you cheering for Romeo and Juliette. You can’t help but fall for Romeo and his charm!

Yet again another fabulous book by the fabulous sisters.

"I'm going to be transported to a world where there is always the perfect match for the heroine no matter what her quirks or idiosyncrasies are. The hero always thinks that she is adorable and cute an that they are what makes her perfect for him. An vice versa. I love that the hero and heroine always see each other".

These two are perfect for each other in every way. They have been in love with each other for years - they just don't know it

Wow! Melanie Shawn does it again with their latest book Resisting Romeo. How can an HEA book about Romeo and Juliette not be a great book and thankfully, this ones ends better than the original.

A romance that started when Juliette was left in a maze by her brother comes full circle and you fall in love with both characters with each new chapter.

This book is definitely one that you need to add to your weekend reading list. And be sure to pay attention at the end, because I’m hoping there is a li

Romeo and Juliette's book was nothing short of fun. I loved the way Juliette made Romeo work for everything. This is a short book that for the most part takes place over a weekend. There is a lot of bang for a short book. Dual point of view. No cliffhanger.

Resisting Romeo takes place the same weekend as Seducing Cinderella and Charming Cupid at the Oasis Resort in New Mexico. The story revolves around Juliette, the assistant of Liam who owns the Oasis and Romeo, formerly the drummer of the band Valentine and childhood best friend of Juliette.

Juliette gets the news that Romeo wants to go to the Oasis and instead of getting the Chef, Driver and other staff that goes along with the private house he rented on the property, he wanted Juliette to be hi

I totally loved reading Romeo and Juliette’s love story in Resisting Romeo by the amazing Melanie Shawn, the third book in their Steamy Weekends series. Juliet works at the Oasis resort and this type-A organizer survives using the lists she creates. As her thirtieth birthday approaches she has one major reject, she is still a virgin; not that she plan for this. For as long as she can remember, Juliette has always been in love with her brother’s best friend and an attempt to have him be her first ...more

Romeo is a rock star. A rock star that is in love with his best-friends little sister. Juliette is a beautiful workaholic that has been in love with a rock star practically her whole life.
After Romeo helped Juliette (Jules) out of a hay maze when she was 6, they were pretty much inseparable. They remained best-friends growing up. They told each other things that they never told anyone else.
But all that changed the night of Jules 18th birthday, when she confessed her love to Romeo, and asked hi

Romeo Whitehall is a sexy, tattooed rock star, for real. He has never really connected with a woman for the long haul and his secret has stayed with him for over 12 years.

Another great installment in the Steamy Weekends series! This story was a lot of fun and Romeo and Juliette couldn’t have been better star crossed lovers. Romeo has been Juliette’s hero from the moment she got lost in a straw maze as a little girl. And Romeo has only had eyes for his best friend’s little sister since the time he realized she wasn’t so “little” any more. However, like most star crossed lovers, the time was just never right – including the night of Juliette’s 18th birthday when sh ...more

Romeo Whitehall found Juliet Pierce in a hay maze when she was a little girl of six when her brother ditched her to hang out with his girlfriend. From that moment on, Juliet Pierce knew she had met the man of her dreams. On her 18th birthday, when Juliet decides to let Romeo know her feelings, things don’t go as Juliet plans. Humiliated, Juliet cuts all contact with Romeo and throws herself into her job.

The Shakespeare story has nothing on this!!

Romeo and Juliet is a love for the ages. These two have a love that was meant to be from a very early age. But 1 night of Jules’ vulnerability caused over a decade of the best friends to have no contact. Now, Romeo is going to stay at the Oasis, and he wants just Juliet to be available to him for what other employees generally perform.

This book was so good! Such a great pace! You won’t want to put it down once you begin reading!

I really enjoyed this story! From the beginning, their story was one of sweet love & affection. Juliette was humiliated at being turned down & didn’t year what Romeo had to say. He knew they both needed to grow & mature before they settled down. Juliette needed to live a little to be sure of her feelings.

This story was something else. How can the love & affection be so sweet & tender but at the same time be so hot & intense? These characters were expertly crafted & e
