Juliet Immortal grabbed me from the first page and never let go. It was like The Host by Stephenie Meyer meets . Stacey Jay is a recovering workaholic (or at least working hard at recovering) with three pen names, two small children, and a passion for playing pretend. It was like The Host by Stephenie Meyer meets the movie Sliding Doors. Such a unique and strange combination. She's been a full time mom-writer since 2005 and can't think of anything she'd rather be doing. Her former careers include theater performer, professional dancer, poorly paid C-movie actress, bartender, waiter, math tutor, and yoga instructor.

STACEY JAY lives in the California wine country with her husband and their two boys. She is the author of the Megan Berry, Zombi Settler series and several other books for young adults.

Fans of Maggie Stiefvater's Shiver and Becca Fitzpatrick's Hush will relish this intense paranormal love story featuring Romeo and Juliet, literary history's most tragic couple, who meet again, not as true lovers, but truly as enemies.

Stacey Jay. I might feel an instant connection to Ben, but I don’t matter, and Ariel isn’t ready to love anyone. She pulled a car off the road and killed her first date, for god’s sake. together, and Ben deserves a girl who won’t load him down with emotional baggage. Even after ten minutes, I can tell he’s special, a kind, decent person in a world where people like him are becoming as rare as soul mates. I lean over to look in the rearview mirror, swipe at a sticky place near my hairline.

you secret
DEAD ON THE DELTA was one of my few five-star reads last year and I've thought, since then, that I should try JULIET IMMORTAL, but - confession time - I've never really liked Shakespeare's ROMEO & JULIET. Not the overwrought adolescent love, not the tragic suicides at the end.

If only I'd realized sooner that JULIET IMMORTAL is a book written specifically for people like me - people so disgusted with the original that they will jump with glee when the first chapter reveals Romeo (Oh, Romeo) as the villain of the piece. The villain! YES!

After the first scene, when Romeo tries to choke the life out of Juliet and Juliet runs for her life, I was totally on board. And for the most part, the novel is excellent. The writing is wonderful, beautiful and visceral without ever getting in the way of the story. The book's premise puts Juliet in the body of another girl, Ariel, living this girl's life, equipped with her memoires. But Juliet views Ariel's life with the clarity and a compassion of a stranger. It's an arresting perspective.

The plot is pretty complex. Basically, Juliet's immortal job is to bring star-crossed lovers (like she and Romeo once were) together. Romeo's job is to drive those lovers apart. Things start to go wrong for Juliet when she falls in love with one half of the star-crossed pair that she's been sent to earth to unite. She falls for Ben...even though she has to push him into someone else's arms.

I did end up having some pretty serious problems with JULIET IMMORTAL. Because this initial purpose that I've described - Juliet has an immortal job, she's sure about which lovers she's supposed to bring together, sure that Romeo is there to stop her, as usual - is thrown for a loop at about the 75% point. I'm going to try to explain this without spoilers, so...let's just say that this loop Juliet has to deal with is just the beginning. Juliet gets revelation after revelation in such quick succession that I'd hardly assimilated the one before the next came crashing along.

I didn't have a problem with the pacing of JULIET IMMORTAL until I got to this rushed, overwhelming conclusion. I wanted Jay to deal with these insane curveballs more thoroughly, and I wished they'd been lobbed at the reader earlier in the book. As a result, even though I liked the place where Jay ended the novel for both Romeo and Juliet, it wasn't as satisfying as it might have been otherwise. I had some kind of literary whiplash.

I have always loved the story of Romeo and his Juliet. Way before I had to read it in high school, way before the movie with Claire Danes and Leonardo Di Caprio came out. It is just one of those star crossed love stories that any hopeless romantic like myself has to love, tragic ending and all.

So when I saw this book with its amazingly gorgeous cover and completing captivating synopsis with a twist of the old tale of star crossed lovers, I knew it was made just for me. Okay, so maybe Stacey Jay didn't write this for me, heck I am sure she has no idea I exist but this is my review, I can pretend what I want to. ;)

The first chapter of this book completely pulled me in and left me wanting more. I mean it had everything the famous love story is suppose to have. No tragic endings here, just a pure real love....or so you are lead to believe.

Then we get into the second chapter, which was just as captivating and every bit as hard to not fly through as I soaked up the words off the pages.

We are brought from 1304 Vienna with a love story in the making to modern day California with Juliet as heart broken and bitter as ever. For the love story wasn't a love story after all. Oh yes, there was love at some point in time and yes there was the tragic ending, but this ending is not something Shakespeare made up. Oh no, this is a tale of betrayal and suicide and yes, even murder.

Romeo betrayed his Juliet.

Juliet is transported into the teenage body of Ariel, a girl much like Juliet.
But something feels off with this new mission. She shouldn't be here so soon after her last one and Romeo? Well Romeo is just around the corner. In fact he woke up right next to her. Something that has never happened so quickly before.

And as always he woke up with a vengeance.

As Juliet in the body of Ariel tries to flee from Romeo she meets Ben and instantly feels a connection with him. A connection she hasn't felt for more than 700 years.

I have to say, I loved Ben right away. He was so kind and caring to Ariel and just seemed genuinely nice. I was a little heartbroken when we find out that Ben is the one Juliet was sent there to protect. The one that he is destined to be with, is not Ariel but with Gemma, Ariel's best friend who is less than, well lets just say her attitude is less than nice at times.

How can she protect them and make sure they are together when she has feelings for Ben? Someone she is forbidden to love. And how can she love at all after what happened the first time she fell in love?

This story actually alternates between Juliet and Romeo's (well we only get glimpses of Romeo's view) point of view and I am glad that it does because you learn that things maybe aren't quite how Juliet sees them. That maybe there is more to the love story that ended so darkly.

That maybe there is more to Romeo and his deal than she is lead to believe and more than she was ever told by Nurse and the Ambassadors.

I really loved this story. It was just beautifully written. It felt like reading prose at times and I felt myself get swept away in the story and genuinely caring about Juliet.

I loved all the twists and turns that happened throughout the story, they were so well done. I just love how this ended and I truly can't wait to read the next book. I want more of Romeo's tale and I do want him to be able to redeem himself. I think there is way more to his story than what we were given in this book and I can't wait to read about it!
