❀️‍πŸ”₯ REVIEW: Ramon and Julieta β€οΈβ€πŸ”₯

Must star-crossed lovers always end up hopelessly trapped in a tragedy of their own making? It was the case for Romeo and Juliet but their romance remains an eternal flame burning through the history of literature. This modern, Latin flavored retelling features two young Mexican American professionals in the culinary business who have a chance meeting that could reset the grudge their families have had for decades. From the start, Ramon and Julieta’s chemistry is off the charts but as they learn about the history between their parents they must decide if love is enough to keep them together.

I’ve never been a huge fan of Romeo and Juliet retellings, they are always overdramatic and border on glamourizing violence and self harm. This retelling is not that. This is sweet and hopeful and really hones in on the current tone of righting past wrongs, encouraging empathy and celebrating culture. I appreciate a rom com with strong ethics and characters who you really want to root for.

This one is very steamy though, so beware if that’s not your thing, you may find yourself skimming some sections. Although if that is your thing, I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
