I was a bit wary of a book featuring Rosaline. Wasn't she the beginning of the end for Romeo? If he had not been infatuated with Rosaline and feeling rejected, would he have crashed the party at the Capulet home and met Juliet? And we all know how it went downhill from there.

This book was a pleasant surprise with many twists and turns in the plot. Rosaline is a wonderful protagonist and you really are rooting for her. Benvolio was a character who did not get much attention in R&J so it is lovely to get to know him in this tale.

Loved the connections to Much Ado (one of my favorites) and the Shakespeare-esque dialogue throughout. Recommended!

I really loved this book and the spin she put on Romeo and Juliet! It kept me wanting to read more and I just wish that her and Benvolio would've gotten together sooner:)
