Hanging in the Stars by Sienna Blake

The finale to the Dark Romeo trilogy…

Roman and Julianna are rocketing towards a fiery end. But it’s not over until it’s over. Betrayals will be revealed. The twisted truth will come to light. Nothing is what it seems.

Can Roman and Julianna find a way to be together or will Shakespeare’s curse befall our star-crossed lovers?

Inspired by Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, this is a retelling for mature audiences. Don’t enter the Underworld if you’re scared of the dark. 

"The truth was, I had fallen in love with Roman Tyrell and I didn't know how to crawl out of love."

Phew!! What a ride!! I *really* enjoyed this Romeo and Juliet adaptation!! If you missed out on my reviews for the first two books, here they are: Love Sprung From Hate and The Scent of Roses. 

IT WAS FUN TO SUSPEND BELIEF while I was reading this entire was such a great adventure for me being my first mafia series, and while I am not sure how often I will read a mafia book, this one was a great one to tempt my reading palate. It kept my attention the entire time I was reading it. I read each book in ONE sitting, after starting them, and to me, that says a lot. I usually take a few days to read a book, but I loved being immersed in this world of tormented love and dirty dealings. 

The final book in this series was a great ending for me. While this one was definitely more action based and less sex was involved (I mean, romance book....hello!!? I had to point it out.), it rounded out the story very well. I feel like I got a full story and don't have any questions. Well, I mean ONE question remains, and I don't think it will truly ever be answered, but their story was complete. Such a good love between Jules and Roman, it withstood every test thrown at them.

I will admit that it took me a minute to hear Sienna's voice and to assimilate myself after the first book since it was super long winded, but this book felt like it got to the point quicker and the pace was perfect for me. I really enjoyed this entire series and can and will recommend it. I will say that I loved the fact that it followed Romeo and Juliet as much as it did, and I was left turning pages quickly to get through the story to see where Sienna took us. I really enjoyed this series. I am glad I jumped in and gave it a chance. New genre and a new to me author. Win/Win!!

"The most terrifying thing any of us can do is to fall in love. Why do you think they call it 'falling' in love? The greater the love, the harder we will fight against it."

  1. Hhhmmm you really got me so intrigued with this series Bee. This would be my second Mafia. I love the first one so much and I'm excited to try another one. And it's an adaptation of Romeo and Juliet? Wow I would love to try this one.
