"Falling for Romeo" by Jennifer Laurens

My Book Summary : Jennifer and John grew up together. Their parents are friends. Also, they are next-door neighbors with bedroom windows parallel to each other. So, it would be hard not to become friends as well. And they were up until three years ago, which is when they both seemed to drift apart from each other.

Now they are in their senior year of high school, working together as Romeo & Juliet in their school’s play, and finding out who they have become since then.

It’s not like they haven’t talked in school. Oh no, they’ve talked. Mostly during English class when they are debating whatever that day’s discussion topic is, they get into very specific arguments because of them, but they don’t really talk any more than that.

Since they were friends, John has become Mr. Popular. He has hordes of girls wanting to be his girlfriend and just people wanting to follow whatever he says. While Jennifer isn’t quite the social butterfly, but she’s pretty, sweet, and has friends who are on the popular side of the social scene. However, she is mostly involved in the theater productions at her school (has been since middle school) and loves it.

Therefore, when their school’s performance came up Jennifer definitely planned on being involved, but for John, he auditioned just so he could get close to Jennifer again. =0)

Things are okay between them for a while, until the rehearsal kissing scenes start up. Which is where they both realize (and kind of deny to themselves) their feelings for one another. But with each one not brave enough to set aside their own pride to admit their feelings, they have a hard time believing if the chemistry they have on stage is real or is it faked?

Will they be able to find out before the play is over and their lives go in different directions again?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars!!! I LOVED the chemistry between Jen & John!! Plus, finding out how close they were growing up it is kind of surprising they ever stopped being friends, but it does happen. You will be routing for them the whole way! I couldn't put it down. Great Book!!

Book Teaser(s) :
"What?" he demanded.
She echoed him, "What?"
"What!"
"I can't believe you did that---in front of all those people!"
"What makes that any different than what you just did with Alex in front of all those people?"
"He kissed me, for your information!"
"I saw it!"
"Then do you need your eyes examined? He kissed me." ~ within Chapter 9
