The sequel to Love Sprung From Hate, Dark Romeo #1.

The game becomes more deadly as the lies get bigger. Risks will be taken, loyalties will be tested, but will Roman and Julianna take the biggest risk of all…giving into their hearts?

*Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this is a retelling for mature audiences. Don’t enter the Underworld if you’re scared of the dark.







As a lover of Shakespearean tragedy, the Dark Romeo trilogy was something that I knew I had to read as soon as I heard about it. Don’t get me wrong, I think Romeo and Juliet were two stupid kids that mistook intense lust for love, but the story is a great one nonetheless! Before I came to that conclusion as an adult, I thought the story was incredibly romantic. Something about feelings so strong that you would give up anything and risk everything for another person is even more beautiful than love without complication. Now I view it as it actually is, a true tragedy, because they gave up their lives for someone that they knew for only a few days in total. Maybe their relationship would have lasted and maybe it wouldn’t have, but they made extreme decisions in the heat of the moment that made their lives come to a sudden and tragic end.

Roman and Julianna are definitely making some Romeo and Juliet style risky decisions throughout this book. The difference is that they recognize the seriousness of their situation and are sometimes forced to make some of the decisions they do in order to save each other. They are more aware of the consequences of their actions and even try to put a stop to everything more than once. That allowed me to be drawn further into the story without too much eye rolling or head shaking in disbelief. Romeo and Juliet were very young, and that made it easier for me to excuse their irrational and impulsive behavior. Roman and Julianna are both full grown adults in important positions and that would make me less sympathetic and more aggravated if they behaved too recklessly. I think the author did a fine job balancing everything in such a way that I didn’t get that frustrated with the characters’ behavior, and I even understood most of the decisions they made. 

Does that mean they always did what I would have done? No, but that also makes the story a lot more interesting. The push and pull, uncertainty, and mistakes are what made me root for them even harder. It may be too much for some people though, so if that’s not your thing, steer clear of this one. Roman was giving me and Julianna whiplash in this book, especially at the end. 

The Scent of Roses was better than its predecessor for me, because there was more suspense, action, and turmoil this time around. We learn more about Roman, the relationship between Roman and Julianna feels more developed, and the risks keep getting bigger and bigger. There was less sex, because the characters spend a lot of time pushing each other away, but what we do get is hot! I can’t wait to find out what happens to these two star-crossed lovers in the final book! Will Roman and Julianna end up like Romeo and Juliet, or will the author gives us a happier ending? I’m hoping for the latter. Finger’s crossed!
