Romero and Julian

Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Chocolate Minx   

The only thing Wesley Romero intended to do is to ask the Julian’s to turn down the loud music. Crossing the street to make that request ignites a fight with the father and oldest son. After the mini battle is settled by the police, Micah Julian is civilized enough to offer apologies for his dysfunctional family. Later that night, Wes and Micah realized their arm-to-arm embraces were more pleasurable than feuding.  

Brynn Paulin’s Romero and Julian is part of the As We Like It Anthology. The impressive plot highlights a number of remarkable events. Wes is a former Marine who suffers with flashbacks. Micah is an in–the-closet gay man, still living at home with his narrow-minded manipulative family. Also featured in the story is how extreme homophobia camouflages the true symptoms of the warped mentalities in Micah’s family. Wes and Micah struggle to find balance with family, as well as each other. The one thing Wes and Micah are sure of is that they belong together, especially after a dramatic life and death incident involving the both of them. Unlike Shakespeare, Romero and Julian is a heartwarming enjoyable saga with sensual lovemaking, as well as a happy-ever-after finale.
