    Worst. Dialog. EVER. Three chapters into this book, I honestly started to question whether this author had ever had a conversation with another human. By the end, I was certain she had not. The dialog is just that awful. Not only that, but I have never been so disappointed in a story that I went into with no expectations. I could so easily see how this could've been a very entertaininng screwball romantic comedy type novel, but clearly that was not to be. It's just astonishing to me the way the a Worst. Dialog. EVER.

I could so easily see how this could've been a very entertaininng screwball romantic comedy type novel, but clearly that was not to be. It's just astonishing to me the way the author systematically ruined her own novel with asinine, overblown, unrealistic scenarios, and such horrid dialog. Perhaps this author watches nothing but reality tv? I cannot think of any other reason she would believe that people might behave the way her characters do. Another thing I found to be off-putting and really bizarre was the way the first half of the novel was completely different in tone from the last. First half, pseudo screwball romantic comedy; second half, the worst, most overdramatically florid soap opera you've ever had the misfortune of viewing. In conclusion, I have four suggestions for this author: 1. Have a conversation with an actual human. Take notes. 2. Cut down on the reality tv & soap operas. They're distorting your sense of actual reality. 3. Remove all forms of the words "shard" and "scream" from your vocabulary. Do it now. 4. Take a writing class and learn how to introduce new characters. Tip: a two paragraph info-dump beginning with character name, age, and physical description might work for your outline, but it does not work in your book.

    I'm going to say the good stuff first. This book had the potential to be a really good romantic comedy. The idea was good. The writer has a great imagination. That's it for the good stuff. I rolled my eyes so many times in this book, they almost rolled out of my head. Juliet was a moron. She was just plain dumb. Romeo was an idiot frat boy. With the exception of Sara and Tommy, the secondary characters were just as dumb. I almost stopped reading at the super glue scene, it was so idiotic.I would I'm going to say the good stuff first.

If the heroine of a love story does anything "coyly" and "giggles" (the author's words) incessantly, it pretty much turns me off, and there was a lot of that in this book. When she wasn't "shrieking", anyway. I also thought the book was somewhat overwritten. As a reader, we don't always want the writer to spell everything out for us, especially the minor stuff, like the fact that the hero is wearing a bandage to cover his gunshot wound to keep infection out. We KNOW why he's wearing a bandage. Just say he has nothing on but a bandage. It's not necessary to say all that, it just makes a book tedious. Pretty much, if four words would do, the author used twelve. I won't say it's not worth the read, but I wouldn't put it at the top of my list.

But this was what finally brought me to edge. “Oh my God,” she mouthed before turning her frightened eyes back up to her sister. “Sara, I’ve made such a huge mistake; I should never have left him. I should have told him about Carrie Ann and the baby.” I was literally pinching my nose, imagining a nice slap to Juliet's face. Gosh, she's the most frustrating heroine ever! Why do I feel like reading Harlequin Present? “That was my baby, Juliet; so that was my decision to make, not yours. When Carrie Ann came to you, you should have told me right away.." You and me, both, sweet Romeo. Okay, maybe Romeo wasn't that bad. At least one of them had a functioning brain although they both were still quite annoying. And to be fair, the ending is kinda sweet...I guess. But what earn this book 2 stars still is because I love that they both stayed celibate even when they're separated for a year. It's ridiculously bad I'm questioning myself why would I ever think that it might be good to give this author a second chance. It's clear this author is not for me.

    DNF @ 71 % I give up. This book had a moment or two. Could be something. And it goes way too long with just new stuff that drages on and on. I have nothing against comedy of situation..as a matter of fact I enjoy it. In this one there is just too much of it. Sorry not sorry. I have too add I'm not a fan of "original" Romeo and Juliet and these two well are equally annoying.

    This book starts out believably. Juliet is a writer afflicted with something common to all authors at some stage - writer's block. After a highly successful first novel, Juliet is paid a one hundred thousand dollar advance to come up with the second. If she can't, then she has to pay back the advance or go bankrupt.

Juliet is a writer afflicted with something common to all authors at some stage - writer's block. After a highly successful first novel, Juliet is paid a one hundred thousand dollar advance to come up with the second. If she can't, then she has to pay back the advance or go bankrupt. However, completing the book appears to be impossible until her married younger sister, Sara, persuades her to take a break at a quiet holiday cottage, owned by Sara's husband's family. The girls arrive and discover that there is a cottage right next door, but as this is empty, they are not concerned. Juliet actually starts writing again - but then, Romeo Boyd - bored, partying film star whose career is on the skids - arrives with a girlfriend and two other couples in tow. The house party starts, with heavy metal music set to top decibel. Understandably, Juliet and Sara are incensed - I would be too - and they set out to protest to their neighbours. Things go downhill from there - plot and writing-wise. I would question the age of the author, because the ongoing “teen” antics of Juliet become downright dangerous. They could be funny, but they are not well written enough for that. Time and again, this character plays revenge games on Romeo, even though each "game" ends up disastrously. To actually want - and try - to superglue his hand to his balls...does the author have any idea what the consequences of that would be? Her ultimate act just escapes being fatal which leads to Romeo retaliating. The parental background of the two sisters is presented as being one of Juliet's issues with a relationship, but this was not convincing. The character is supposed to be 27 and should have enough maturity to work out what is real and what not. Her constant lying would be enough to put off any man. Her desperation to finish her contracted book disappears after the main event (no spoilers) and she spends her time agonising over not having the advance to pay back to the publisher, but doesn’t actually sit down and finish the book! (She does write one later though which is successful.) Juliet's decision-making goes from bad to worse (she knows what's best for everyone of course, especially for Romeo) until I was ready to chuck the book at the 3/4 mark. The main character's relationship was a train wreck in the making and I persevered only because I wondered how the author would get out of it. The writing in this novel was not tight enough or exciting enough to pull off the plot, so for me this book was a disappointment. I can't say I hated it, but at the same time it did not fulfill the initial promise of the first two or three chapters which was a great pity as Anna Mara's work is usually well up to scratch.

    This book really put a smile on my face. It had me laughing throughout the whole book. I was just happy after I read it. Though in the beginning only a few things were funny, by the middle it had me cracking up. I did wish some things were different though.

Through the whole book, I kept wanting to scream, "Just talk to each other already! And tell each other how you feel!" I felt like just too many things had gotten in between them. It was like one thing after another that stopped them from being together. It kind of got annoying. I was upset with Juliet a lot in this book. I thought she was just so stupid at times. I found it hilarious that all her antics against Romeo backfired on her and made for some entertaining stories. I did feel like the ending was rushed a bit because I went from crying around the beginning ninety percent of the book to smiling at other end of ninety percent of the book. I just didn't know what hit me. I wish that the epilogue had more to it because I would have loved to know more about Romeo and Juliet's future. However, the small faults did not take away from the book at all. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm glad I had gotten this as an Amazon freebie.

    It was a good read! Some laugh out loud scenes but overall, too over the top and sometimes immature...

    I wanted to love this book --- especially since it enjoys relatively good sales on amazon.com. But to be honest, I found few redeeming qualities to it. The story was just okay and it was rather hard to get through --- feeling more like a trudge through a swamp than a fun romance novel. The premise was great and the characters showed some promise, but I had real issues following the story. The scene jumps quickly from place to place. And unfortunately, the dialogue is rather juvenile.

Romeo Boyd is a Hollywood star whose fame is fading, and he heads to his vacation home to drown his worries in alcohol. His love for very loud rock music immediately causes problems for his neighbour, Juliet Soma, a novelist seeking her muse to ward off a serious case of writer’s block. When Juliet meets Romeo, he mistakes her for a stripper and things go downhill from there. An intense rivalry ensues, and when Juliet gets Romeo arrested all bets are off. When she then lands him in the hospital, in his most devious move, Romeo fakes amnesia and “mistakes” Juliet for his wife. A guilt-ridden Juliet is convinced by Romeo’s “doctor” (actor friend) to go along with whatever Romeo says, and Juliet soon becomes Romeo’s slave. Living together might mean killing each other, but instead the unthinkable happens: they start falling for each other! Will Juliet discover Romeo’s deception? Will she forgive him, or up the ante? Could there ever be a happily ever after for two stubborn fools? Can they put the past behind them? Can they trust each other’s motives when they’ve done nothing but cause each other grief? Why Romeo hates Juliet by Anna Mara is a very refreshing read (that has absolutely nothing to do with William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet; this is by no means a modernisation of the story, the characters’ names being the only commonality). This book made me cringe and laugh out loud several times. The characters are colourful and engaging, pulling you into their war from the get go. A happy ending is never a certainty, and Mara keeps you guessing until the very end. What I especially like about this book is its deviation from a common pattern in romantic fiction: Where the guy is usually the one who messes up badly and must fight to convince the girl to give him another chance, Why Romeo hates Juliet flips it 180. The girl is the one who messes up, and she’s the one who must atone for her mistake – a nice departure from the expected. I give this book a rating of 3/5 instead of 4/5 because I would have preferred a little more romance. The majority of the story is Romeo and Juliet going out of their way to aggravate each other, but their chemistry is so great they keep you hooked. I did get really frustrated with both of them, but they kept me invested in their story until the end. While I concur that the situations these two get themselves into are unlikely to happen in the real world, it is the touches of realism instead of over-the-top, soppy, unrealistic scenes that made this book stand out. Why Romeo hates Juliet has a more realistic road to HEA than most, and disappoints my helplessly romantic heart before it delivers a satisfying ending. Juliet not only had to earn Romeo’s forgiveness, but mine as well… She did. I will definitely read more from this author.

Fluff for the sake of fluff isn't really the problem here. More in a minute~ This story had the potential to be funny, witty, entertaining, and emotionally reflective. Sadly, it was weighted down with so many irritants that the story was lost and became annoying and tedious to get through. The bad... The writer overwrote the ENTIRE story - every element, every plot point, every conversation, every inner rambling! And, hey, I'm a very verbose person, okay! Basically, if say a thought, convo, or happening required a seven word sentence to convey, then the author made three paragraphs out of what should've been a single sentence. Imagine an upbeat pop song (the story) being danced to with a stiff, slow waltz (the writing.) It made for tedious, frustrating reading. Some of the schemes were just too over the top and serious to be funny. Super glue his hand to the chair is one thing. Super glue his hand to his penis is quite another thing. I appreciate over the top humor. "The Consequence of Loving Colton" is one of my favorite books! However, this book carelessly shooting people and the cruelty of wanting to glue private places... Ehh, that's just not my idea of funny. Lies and hurting each other came too easily for this couple. The author made the guilt and suffering that followed clear, but the ease of getting mad, seeking revenge, jumping to think the worst of each, & of her running away just made it difficult to root for a HEA when the entire book is spent with them being a destructive force of hurt toward each other. Chapter 79 was weird. The whole butterfly kisses and heart cave thing was odd, extremely cheesy, and just didn't even make sense. Getting to the sex scene in this book was like traipsing around in Sahara sand dunes for hours, and then it was seriously disappointing and dramatically cheesy. The last 10-15% of the book felt discombobulated. I didn't buy Carrie Ann's place in the HEA. Why? SPOILER SENTENCE******Child support from a movie star$$$ buys lots of nannies. Need I say more?!? Ironically enough, the end felt rushed in a forced way... Like all the pieces that were needed for them to be together were just thrown together for everything to have the HEA. Bottom line... This is one of those books that readers will either find wildly romantic and funny or a huge letdown. I was letdown.

    This was my first Anna Mara read and I loved it, I’ve never laughed out loud so much as to the amount of stupidity and immaturity that came from Romeo and Juliet. This was a cute, fun and light hearted read. Juliet is on vacation with her sister Sara, trying to write up her next novel to save herself financially before she ends up declaring bankruptcy. The arrival of her unexpected next door neighbours shatters her peace, as loud music takes over and sexual nature is on full display to witness, This was my first Anna Mara read and I loved it, I’ve never laughed out loud so much as to the amount of stupidity and immaturity that came from Romeo and Juliet. This was a cute, fun and light hearted read. Juliet is on vacation with her sister Sara, trying to write up her next novel to save herself financially before she ends up declaring bankruptcy. The arrival of her unexpected next door neighbours shatters her peace, as loud music takes over and sexual nature is on full display to witness, day in day out derailing any possibility for Juliet to write and deliver her novel on time. Suffering enough disruption and fear taking over Juliet storms across and confronts her neighbour only to be blown away by Romeo, who mistakenly takes her for the personal stripper hired for him by his friends, the scenes that followed were too funny! A love hate relationship entails and all war breaks out as these two try to get one over the other, Juliet fighting for peace and quiet, whilst Romeo wanting the opposite and not backing down. There was so many funny scenes that my face ached from smiling and laughing. In the event of Romeo and Juliet trying to trap each other to get the upper hand, real feelings start to develop between them and we see another side to Romeo, but at every turn they are prevented from being together due to their own antics and Romeo’s fake ass girlfriend Carrie Ann getting in the way, god I hated the manipulative woman and I can’t believe what she shared with Romeo I hated it! I would like to have seen a confrontation between her and Juliet as she was the catalyst that kept them apart and Romeo broke Juliet’s heart, taking his revenge further with faking amnesia ruining any chance he had with Juliet despite wanting to own up due to his feelings for her taking over. Leaving Juliet to make the ultimate sacrifice for her Romeo. A beautiful fun, comical and romantic read with a hea, I would like to have seen more of an epilogue as it wasn’t enough, I really wanted to see how their future unfolded, as there wasn’t enough happy moments shared together, a novella please?!

    The idea and plot behind this novel were great, it's a nice lighthearted read, however it really could have used a better editor and some serious copy editing. The dialog was unrealistic, stilted and just not believable speech for real people.

Since readers are paying for the words on those pages, the least I think that could be done would be making sure typos, and bad paragraphing are corrected before public consumption. Some of the sections didn't really flow right, meaning when you read you shouldn't have to stop and think what is the writer trying to say here, it shouldn't be words on a page, it should be a story in your mind and I found myself stopping to reread sections to try to grasp what the writer was trying to say more than once. However I can also say this book had me laughing out loud often and was as funny as promised. Some of the comedic scenes are a bit far fetched but when the protagonist find themselves super glued to each other it's hard not to laugh even if the scenario isn't all that realistic. There were parts of the books that weren't really necessary and made the plot drag a bit as well, which leads me back to a good story that really needed a proper editor to trim and correct where corrections were needed. Overall a good book, but not a great one.

This is my second book by Anna Mara and i've notested that her female characters have a loooot of resistance towards sex! LOL Towards the end i though...he's ex is not really pregnant and then...its awfull and then...why couldn't have endend with them finding their way in the marriage or with Juliet being pregnant herself...?! I was sad. I've came to the conclusion that Anna Mara writes very long novels, but with sudden and shorts ends. But i love her stories, i think they will make great romantic comedie movies. And i'm looking forward reading more of her work.

    Wow. Well that was complete crap. Now I'm not saying the whole book was but after finishing it..yeah I regret it. It started out with promise and a good premise and then you get to the main characters meeting. Holy shit did these 2 characters piss me off. Juliet was the worst lead female I ever read about. She was just idiotic and contradicted herself and was completely childish. Romeo was on the same level but at least he was less irritating and had a tad more rational than Juliet. The only per Wow.

    This was a funny laugh out loud kind of book that I really enjoyed up to a point. To be honest, I didn't finish it as there were so many highs and lows that I just got to the point I couldn't take anymore. I got to a point where they were happy and just left it at that, which was 70 to 80 percent of the way through the book. Now, the parts that I read...GREAT...there was a lot of humorous situations, and the characters were likeable in their own flawed ways.

    I'm going to get right to the point. This story has so many used themes like: enemies to lovers, celebrity and girl next door, evil other woman, and a whole lotta lies and misconceptions; ENOUGH ALREADY! I'm giving this 2.5 stars because I enjoyed the romance aspects but this book should have stopped after they finally are happy. I serious hate the ending and felt duped and let down because I wanted to like it. Just horrible.

    I loved it. I found it funny and hard to put down. Loved all the characters just like I did "Her Perfect Revenge". I can't wait for the movie version, all I kept picturing was Josh Duhamel. He'd be sooo perfect for Romeo. I loved the ridiculousness of some of the scenarios but isn't that what a good book can be? Silly stupid things that don't happen in real life?!

    Too much. Too many devices. Too many scenes that made the book overly long. Too little editing that should have cut the story off long before the book ends. This just got to being a frustrating read. Note: this was an Amazon freebie read.

    This book was probably twice as long as it needed to be. It could have used some serious editing. Lots of repetitive dialog. Premise was like a really bad romantic comedy.

    This book is a piece of work. And I dont mean this in a good way. First off this fuckin book is wayyyy to long for the dumb plot it has. Like talk about the author just fuckin rambling on about useless shit. I felt like I was never going to finish this book because of how boring and pointless the whole story was. Juliet is one of the most irratating characters ever. at first I thought she would be this person who doesnt take shit from anyone but all of a sudden she sees a handsome guy and she ca This book is a piece of work.

Juliet is one of the most irratating characters ever. at first I thought she would be this person who doesnt take shit from anyone but all of a sudden she sees a handsome guy and she cant think straight. Like wow? She is so childish for being “27” like wtf I literally felt like I was reading from a 16 year olds point of view. Now Romeo was so unlikable. I didnt find him interesting at all. All I know about him is that hes hot and a movie star. Soooo boring why would anybody fall in love with that. Overall the characters were bland and didnt have much of a connection to eachother. I didnt feel the love or the chemistry. This book was just shit. This whole thing that was the conflicts in the story could have been avoided if the main characters just acted like the adults they are suppose to be. Save some time and dont read this. Only reason I read it was because I like to finish books Ive started.👎🏽😡🤬 SMH😪

    DNF @ 15% Let’s add some more exclamation points! To make the story seem like far more interesting than it really is! H is a washed up actor with his entourage, and h is a writer trying to write a book. They’re temporary neighbors, and the big “tension” is that he plays loud music and she hasn’t figured out how noise-canceling headphones work (or maybe is unaware they exist). From there, the H, h, entourage, and the h’s sister behave like selfish 10-year old kids. Maybe 8. But, the boys hire stri DNF @ 15% Let’s add some more exclamation points!

The h then acts like it’s his fault she pushed him into something, injuring him. At 2%, it was tough to keep reading. I kept thinking the book had to have some redeeming qualities, but it just kept being absurdly childish people with lots of money and few clues about how adults function in the world. When I realized that these two were really too selfish for me to care about them, I was happy to leave them in jail (regardless of what the author did with them).

    Was this written by a 12 year old? So many things are wrong with this book I couldn’t even finish so it. Let’s start with the fact that I didn’t even chuckle, everything was so predictable, the lead girl was an awful dingbat that I couldn’t even stand, the “bimbo” he was originally with was a better character than the lead and some chapters were only one and a half pages! A chapter needs to be 3,000 to 5,000 words. I also understand that the writer was trying hard to be descriptive but that’s the Was this written by a 12 year old?

The writer spent more time describing things that needed such little description that it made many parts just drone on that I kept skipping a paragraph and was like “WE GET THE POINT!” This book all in all was badly written and frustrating NOT FUNNY AT ALL.

    Did make me laugh Enemies to Lovers omniscient point of view Broke and blocked writer, Juliet, needs a change of scenery and quiet but her beach vacation home comes with a very loud obnoxious Hollywood actor as a neighbor. Hijinks ensue as the two try to outdo each other. I laughed right out loud several times! I wish that wit and humor had been used more effectively - secondary characters were not well developed. The main characters were sooooo childish and immature and then suddenly they are not.

    The book took forever to get started. However some of the sexual scenes for me were to graphic. However the storyline was believable because because fear can make people to do some crazy things. Instead of facing things head on. I know myself have done things because of fear and wish i could call back the hands of time. It does have a happy ending i just wish that the sexual encounters were not so graphic. I myself do not every detail described to me i like a good love story do not get me wrong The book took forever to get started. However some of the sexual scenes for me were to graphic.

I myself do not every detail described to me i like a good love story do not get me wrong and i do not need graphoc details to get the picture. I will probably not read anymre of her books for this reason.

    Not my cup of tea I rarely give and reviews about books but this was just ridiculous. I read it till the end just to make sure that I would give an honest and fair review. I absolutely did not like this book!!! The characters were psychotic and unpredictable all throughout the book. I hated the hero.....he was disrespectful, rude, condescending and an absolute debacle. The only person who had some sense in the book sometimes was Sarah, the heroine's sister.

    Ugh. If it had not been a free read on Prime, I'd demand a refund. First clue about the quality of the book is right there in the title, "Laugh Out Loud", as though the publishers are ordering you to read it because you should find it hilarious. I did not find it amusing or entertaining. It is desperate, entirely too long, contrived, and neither Romeo nor Juliet are likeable or believable. Avoid this book like a bad meme. There are so many other books out there which are charming and fun and whic Ugh. If it had not been a free read on Prime, I'd demand a refund.
