Brooke: Thank you for climbing walls . . ."
Sweet, innocent and full of love "And She Called Him Romeo" is the debut novel of Santana Blair, about discovering yourself and stick to fight for what you truly love.
"You are the only one I want. There’s never been anyone else for me. Just you."
I think Santana started on the right foot with this book, her characters are beautiful and natural.
The love between Brooke and Jayson isn't only young but also romantic as Romeo and Juliet, but with a sense of reality. They make mistakes, take decisions and struggle to stay together.
One of the things I appreciate are the secondary characters, they play a very important role in the story, but especially their families, that unity and warmth of home is a touch pleasantly different in this book, you can see that both come from families where there is brotherhood and unconditional love.
"And She Called Him Romeo" will simply make you fall in love with their characters, and remember that sometimes love can be a difficult path but the fight for the person you love makes it all worthwhile. Santana Blair has a fresh style and I think her other books will be loaded with the same kind of love.
“I love you Brooke. I’m stubborn so I’m pretty much determined to love you forever whether you love me back or not . . .”
This book begins with our book boyfriend, Jayson, revealing his secret love for our heroine, Brooke. He's loved her from the very first time he laid eyes on her but has never yet acted on his feelings. Jayson is the most popular boy in their school and also the town's basketball hero. He could have any girl he wanted but he only wanted Brooke.
Brooke is a quiet, but beautiful, girl who loves art and is happy to stay invisible. She notices Jayson's stares but truly thinks it's some sort of joke at her expense.
Jayson needs to keep off of academic probation so he uses this as his chance to snag the girl of his dreams. They are coincidentally studying Romeo & Juliet in their English class (hense our title) and he asks for Brookes help with his grades.
Brooke agrees to tutor him and after spending time together the sparks fly. She adores Jaysons family and eventually falls for him too.
Their high school romance has a few hiccups, one for which I almost couldn't forgive Mr.Romeo (Jayson), but they make it to graduation and eventually college together.
In college, Jayson is playing basketball on their college team while Brooke cheers him on and still studies her art. She had to make big sacrifices to stay with her man, but she believes them all to be worth it.
This story sucked me in. I was totally wrapped up in their world and couldn't wait to see what happened next!
There were a few continuity mistakes (wrong characters names being used) that pulled me out of the story for a second but I was able get right back in after a few beats.
There were also several chapters that I found myself skimming. While the story flowed and most of the dialog was important to the story, there were several pages that made this book seem a bit too long in my opinion.
I do have a short attention span, so that's more than likely just me though. :P
I give And She Called Him Romeo 3.5 out of 5 stars!
I look forward to seeing more from Paradise Cove!
*I was generously given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for an honest review.
It's A very promising introduction for Jayson and Brooke when seeing the author include this quote in the foreword. This story is set in a high school with the male and female leads in their senior year. Some familiar themes of the star football player needing the smartest, shyest girl's help in order to play for a division 1 school. What is unique to this story is the amusingly awkward and down right stalkerish behavior of the male lead. Jayson's POV drives the majority of the story, although we do get Brooke's as well, his is a bit more dominant.
Jayson has wanted a way to get closer to Brooke for some time. He's been longing for her for many years. It's his voice that's dominant more than his actions. He's actually a bit insecure. The reason for this is touching, he is young, but he is already a man. Jason is also a senior in high school and being a football player is a large part of his identity. However, he is not at all arrogant. He's a sweetie, he clearly loves his momma, and he's found his soulmate.
The story itself is told with a great deal of heart and soul. It's just so pretty, the way it's written:
"Her creamy brown skin was practically flawless only spotted by flecks of paint or smudges of charcoal on her fingers from her incessant sketching. He wasn’t sure if she knew about her rainbow beauty marks but he loved spotting them on her."
If you are a fan of young love, or a fan of Romeo and Juliet you will be extremely pleased with this book and an instant fan. She called him Romeo is cleverly told using the book to parallel the star crossed lovers lives.
