Review: My Dark Romeo by L.J. Shen & Parker S Huntington

My fairy tale turned into a cautionary one.
Inked in tar and sealed in tears.

From Wall Street Journal bestsellers L.J. Shen and Parker S. Huntington comes an explosive marriage of inconvenience…between a tarnished Romeo and a reluctant Juliet.

It was supposed to be a harmless kiss at a lavish debutante ball. A clandestine moment with a handsome stranger. But unlike his namesake, my Romeo isn’t driven by love. He’s fueled by revenge.

To him, I’m a chess piece. Leverage. His rival’s betrothed. To me, he is a man deserving of poison. A dark prince I refuse to marry.

He thinks I’ll accept my fate. Well, I plan to rewrite it. And in my story, Juliet doesn’t die. But Romeo? He perishes.

Authors’ Notes: My Dark Romeo is a standalone reluctant arranged marriage romance between a cruel billionaire heir and a feisty heiress unafraid to fight back. It is set in the decadent Dark Prince Road world.

Avery’s Thoughts About the Book

Scorching Hot & LOL Hilarious

My Dark Romeo might be the funniest romance novel I have ever read. From the very first chapter, this book actually made me laugh out loud all the way through to the end. The back and forth banter. Both Dallas’s and Romeo’s internal dialog. The text conversations with Ollie vB and Zach Sun. Every interaction Romeo has with an enemy (the man has no filter unless using one serves him in the moment). All fucking hilarious.

AND HOT! Omg. For a pair who don’t spend a whole lot of time actually banging, their sexual encounters are volcanic.
