Calling Romeo

Review: Calling Romeo - Alexandra Potter - 2004

For years, Juliet  has been getting the Romeo jokes chucked at her , left-right and centre.

However , when he stands her up on Valentines Day, she starts to re-evaluate her relationship with Will. Is he the one for her, or is she just in the relationship out of comfort and safeness ? Enter Sykes, a handsome Italian who sets Juliet's heart a flutter with fireworks galore, not to mention he's wealthy, single and handsome. He is a guy filled with romantic gestures, a guy who brings the romantic sparks to Juliet. He is her Cary Grant whereas Will is her Tom Hanks.  However , relationships and flings can only last ever so long and Juliet must decide who her Romeo is before it's too late and she loses not just one of them but both in the process. Is her Romeo "Sykes"-her Cary Grant from a Touch of Mink or is it Will -her Tom Hanks from When Harry met Sally ?
Read as Juliet discovers that romance -the whole nine yards isn't all that it is cracked up to be.
