I had high hopes for this book and it did not disappoint. I loved Jerzie and Zeppelin as characters and their relationship. I loved the spin of Romeo and Juliet and I only wish Roman and Jewel was really a musical!

I would like to thank Edelweiss and the publisher for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review. All                                                                thoughts expressed are my personal opinion.

Description Summary | All the musical references was heaven to a theatre lover like me but the over the top dramatics and lackluster character developments made this book a slightly above average read.

Score: 3.5 / 5

This was theatrical in every sense, in the main characters' developments and feelings, in the comical villain, and the over the top gushy romance with Disney movies cliches. Which to me is very different than what I expected it to be judging from the synopsis and cover.

I actually enjoyed it and by the second half of the book I was completely hooked. I read this book everywhere. I think the star for me was the author's writing, it was such an easy read and a great distraction book if you ever need one.

I expected a bit of a slow burn with more deep complexities being analyzed. The love at first sight trope was a bit much for me and the dramatics in the book was kind of distracting from the main big picture. What I did enjoy is all the musical references and laugh out loud moments.

Do I recommend? If you love over the top romance that is fast paced check this one out.
