I almost choked on my own tongue. "I'd be the end of her. Don't you remember who my family is? I'm a danger to her just by wanting her, just by thinking about her, by breathing her name out loud."
Well, hot da**! When you think the book can't get any better and bam! it proves you wrong. This book was everything I looked in a book angst, romance, love twist, anguish, alpha male, a great plot that you don't see coming, strong-minded heroine, and of course shed tears. If you make my heart squeeze and my eyes watery just know that you've engraved your characters in my heart!
The Scent of Roses is the sequel to Love Sprung from Hate, Dark Romeo #1.
Picking up right from the first's book epic cliffhanger, Sienna Blake gets back into action captivating you from the very first page.
In this book, you'll learn more about both characters. You'll learn what is Roman Tyrell capable of doing for someone he cares about and you'll also see Julianna struggle with what her mind is telling her to do and what her heart is making her do. Consequences are dammed but nonetheless, this helps her become stronger than ever.
Julianna Capulet being the strong-minded heroine she's always has been facing many obstacles in her life as well in her career. Being a detective and only daughter of the Chief of Police makes her an easy target but she manages to pull through and be on top. She's a strong, independent, sassy and beautiful woman that fights for what is right she's the only person that sees Roman as he is a NICE MAN.
I totally fell head over heels with Roman AGAIN! Haha, that man is frustrating, to say the least. But he's protectiveness over Jules is such heartwarming. His personality and the way he expresses himself will gut you but you'll understand why he thinks he's not worth saving when in reality is that, he's the best prize
"I see. You think you can come in and save me. This isn't some stu*** high school fantasy. You can't save me. I'm not your prince. I am the monster in this story."
The ordinary push and pull game got stronger that not even Roman could control it.
When Roman lets his guard down and lets his feelings overcome the fear everything starts getting into place despite the warning his best friend Mercutio warned him bout he was ready to overcome his father and start living the life he deserves.
"Give me all of your nights, Julianna," he murmured against my cheek. "Be with me."
Let's not forget about the hot best friend that Mercutio has always been and Giovanni Tyrell. Mercutio is the friend you'll want to have by your side at any time of the day. In this book, we will see more of him and I honestly hope Sienna has a story for him, I want to know more about him and what makes him tick!
Giovanni Tyrell, Roman' s father (shivers) Yes that man still gives me the chills!!! He's like a snake, he's preparing his next move but you don't know when he's going to strike.
Overall I absolutely LOVE this book. The bond between Jules and Roman was getting more and more intense that I was gripping the book like it was my lifetime. Every turn of the page I felt as though my heart could not take it. Both the hero and heroine have a deep connection that no matter what happens I know they'll fight for their LOVE. I know Roman would not just give up that easy, but is he really ready? Or his blood name Tyrell be strong enough to ruin this Love and forever be a Forbidden love?
"I tried to be good for you, but I can't fake it anymore. I am a Tyrell down to the core."
Taboo is the name of the game with this series and The Scent of Roses is no exception.
Two people who should never even consider being together, pushing all of the limits that are standing in their way.
Normally for a book to get five stars out of me it needs to make me cry. I was just sure this book wasn't going to and I really didn't even care if it did, it was just that good. But there I was, smack dab in the middle, teary eyed. This series is hot, hot, hot and it checks off all of my must haves.
I think Roman is my new favorite of all times. The way that Sienna Blake writes his intensity is beyond words. Imagining how uncomfortable Juliet is during some of those scenes just having him look at her...not to mention speaking to her. It's almost too much!
I cannot wait for August when the third book comes out. I am sure it will be super explosive and Lord help me if there isn't a HEA. I will be a hot mess.
Obviously, The Scent of Roses is part of a series and you absolutely MUST read Love Sprung From Hate, Dark Romeo #1 first. You will be utterly lost and lets just be honest, book 1 was amazing too. Reading time for this book was just a little over 3 hours and I read it all in one sitting...because duh!
Note: This is book 2 of a continuing story. You need to read book 1, Love Sprung from Hate prior to reading this.
In part two of this trilogy, the bond for Jules and Roman get more entangled with their lives and where they stand when it comes to the law. Roman tries hard to keep his distance, yet Jules is determined to help him see that she recognizes the man he really is. Of course, this only makes things more dangerous for them both and it gets harder and harder for Roman to stay away.
Suspense grows, passion intensifies and their story just keeps working it's way under my skin. I'm excited to find out what happens in their conclusion and how close their ending will come close to the famous tale of Romeo and Juliet. I'm hoping for a more favorable ending. I really want Roman to find the happy ending he truly deserves. He's such a great guy underneath and it breaks my heart to see him have to be the monster everyone assumes he is. I truly wish Julianna had more faith in him. Though her feelings grow, she has a tendancy to doubt him way too often for my liking.
This twist on such a great love story continues to be an interesting tale!
