...is a dark romantic book
That sentence piqued my interest; I'd love to find out what transpires in the book.
Great review!

People are not always what they seem. I hope Julia understands that. And about the abrupt ending, I hope there's a sequel, else I could cry. This is a beautiful book. Thank you for an amazing review.

The book sounds great, It looks like a mysterious and engaging story, but I don't know if I could read it because of the dark romance and horror. That's not my style. By the way, great review!

I think this book should have a movie. Though I haven’t read the book, but the review shines a light on quite an adventurous plot, full of events that will win the hearts of the audience when shown on the big screen. I enjoyed your review.
:tiphat:
Since you mentioned it, I can totally see this book as a movie. Thanks for your comment.

Adventurous characters like Julia are intriguing, although too much of it may be dangerous for them. This sounds like a great romance novel.

Terrific Review.

Although your review sounds promising, I think it is yet another addition in the group of forbidden dark romance novels. Appreciate the honest review.🌸
Readers know it. Authors know it. Publishers know it. A promising review sells books! :roll:

Your success is not completely deserved, and the failure of others is not completely deserved either :D

An abrupt ending can really spoil things. Still, I love what you've said about the descriptiveness of the author. It says like they really have a way with words. Still, the romance part of the book doesn't sound like it's for me. Thanks for a great review.
Good books, like good friends, are few and chosen; the more select, the more enjoyable.

I love this sentence, "a dark romantic book wrapped in an ominous bow," from your review. I also like how you started off with a quote from the book,
