John can have any girl he wants. Jennifer's never been kissed.

Everybody thinks he's perfect. She's got issues with pride and jealousy.

They were best friends-once. Now, they're playing Romeo and Juliet. Virgin lips Jennifer must have her first kiss on stage with John, the guy every girl in school wants. The pressure and tension build along with each staged kiss. Both are shocked when feelings bloom. Can either tell which kisses are real and which are for show?

Falling for Romeo is a story about a boy and a girl who are too proud to express their feelings for one another, which is quite similar to the situation of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice.

John is the most popular boy in school. He participates in a lot of activities, and in most of them he's the leader. He is Jennifer's next-door neighbour, and they were once best friends.

Jennifer is the most popular girl in school. You may think it is strange that she is not with John. Actually, she does have some special feelings for John, but she just can't convince herself to admit it.

This novel is short and sweet. There are chemistry and sparks between John and Jennifer, but not much happened. I think the plot needs some improvement, because I only observe John and Jennifer's love-hate relationship throughout the novel. I still liked it, though, because it is romantic in a nice way.

I would recommend this book to readers who enjoy a cute love story. Those who like to read chick-lit novels will also find this book entertaining.

Rating: 3

Notes: Falling for Romeo has some kissing scenes, but there's nothing overboard.

Thanks to Bookworm Lisa for sending this book all the way to Malaysia to me. *Hugs!*
