I adore this story! It has everything I love. A truly romantic story between two beautiful and soulful characters. Leo is a hunky,intelligent,loving,romantic soul. Juliet is a beautiful, feisty, loyal, romantic soul. Together they are perfect! Throw in Italy and chocolate. What more could you need?
I enjoyed the mystical aspect of their first meeting in the vineyards. What a magical start to this amazing story.
It was so enjoyable to learn their families were arch enemies, because that made for a roller coaster ride through the struggle Leo and Juliet had to face. Their mutual attraction which couldn't be denied, was hampered by their family loyalty and previous relationships gone wrong. They absolutely sizzle together. When they are finally ready to consummate their relationship it is all beautifully told and so romantic.
Let's not forget the added drama of the chocolate competitions they both enter! The Rome interlude was perfection all round. Loved every bit of it.
If only I could articulate how much I really love this story! I highly recommend this book it is a brilliant read! I smile whenever I think of it.
Spoilers ahead so you've been warned....
I could see the parallels between this story and its inspiration from the beginning. Even though it's been a long time for me I even recognized the name of Leo's ex-fiancée and how closely the name was to someone Romeo also fancied. Anyway, Juliet and Leo meet and right away their families find out and it's a constant state of tension between everyone in the feuding families.
But besides chocolate, what else can bring these two star-crossed lovers together? Dogs, of course!! When Juliet's beloved Cocoa accidentally gets chocolate poisoning, who could not help but swoon when Leo carries Cocoa into the animal hospital? Men with dogs=sexiness!
But the feud continues anyway with chocolate competitions and the like. But Juliet and Leo just can't deny that their story was predestined. Maybe that's why Juliet's cousin Alegra didn't fight it too hard. Incidentally, I loved her. And I loved her nickname for poor Leo.
Speaking of poor Leo, that plot twist with the allergy?! Omg, porque?! That's when I wanted to wrap Leo up in my arms and comfort him....purely maternal instincts there...oh who am I kidding? But man that part killed me! And what he wrote in Juliet's recipe book that belonged to her grandmother (one half of the beginning of the decades-old feud)? Wow, I knew it was going to happen but I was still so happy and "aww-ing."
The happily ever after and Juliet's own "sacrifice" at the chocolate fair in Rome was also somewhat expected, but I just adored those final scenes. I wish I knew more of the fallout or eventual reconciliation between the families, but we did get a sampling.
My final note: this story of course couldn't have happened without a balcony scene. And I'm glad it was done. And I will say this particular balcony scene is infinitely sexier!
Loved this story very much!!
