"Unmasking Juliet" by Teri Wilson

Author's Book Description : Ever since she was a little girl learning to make decadent truffles in her family's chocolate shop, Juliet Arabella has been aware of the bitter feud between the Arabellas and the Mezzanottes. With their rival chocolate boutiques on the same street in Napa Valley, these families never mix. Until one night, when Juliet anonymously attends the annual masquerade ball. In a moonlit vineyard, she finds herself falling for a gorgeous stranger, a man who reminds her what passion is like outside of the kitchen. But her bliss is short-lived when she discovers her masked prince is actually Leo Mezzanotte, newly returned from Paris and the heir to her archenemy's confection dynasty.

With her mind in a whirl, Juliet leaves for Italy to represent the Arabellas in a prestigious chocolate competition. The prize money will help her family's struggling business, and Juliet figures it's a perfect opportunity to forget Leo…only to find him already there and gunning for victory. As they compete head-to-head, Leo and Juliet's fervent attraction boils over. But Juliet's not sure whether to trust her adversary, or give up on the sweetest love she's ever tasted...

My Book Review : 5 out of 5 stars! Based off of a classic play this novel has turned into a classic for me! However, instead of being a tragedy like its predecessor it's an entertaining romantic contemporary comedy that allows you to root for Leo & Juliet while throwing you into the middle of a generational chocolate war. Together they overcome their own fears along with the rulings of their families to embrace the future they are yearning for.

I highly recommend this novel to anyone who's fans of Ms. Wilson, who are fans of Romeo & Juliet, and/or who like contemporary romances!!

Book Teaser(s) :
Leo narrowed his gaze at Cocoa. "Is it my imagination, or does your dog bark every time she hears my last name?"
Juliet's cheeks flushed a stirring shade of pink. "Maybe."
Leo refused to believe it. There were already more than enough opinions about this heated flirtation he and Juliet had going on without adding her dog's into the mix.
He looked at Cocoa again. She'd slumped to her belly, and was resting calmly with her head on her shaggy, outstretched legs at Juliet's feet.
The only way to know for certain was to put his theory to the test. "Mezzanotte."
Cocoa's head popped up. Woof.
Leo slid his gaze to Juliet. Her flush intensified.
"Arabella," he said, doing his best to ignore the musical way the word rolled off his tongue.
Cocoa simply yawned.
Nothing. No reaction at all.
Still more silence.
Leo shook his head. "Well, I'll be damned." ~ within Chapter 6
Quicker than she would have imagined, he was level with her balcony. His lips curved into a cocky smirk. "Hello there, Juliet."
God, he wasn't even out of breath. If she'd attempted such a feat, she no doubt would have ended up with a nice collection of broken bones. Of course, he wasn't actually on the balcony yet. He was still hanging on to the trellis.
"What now, Spider-Man?" she asked dryly. ~ within Chapter 20
