    Why do I have the feeling that only other authors are reading this book? Sometimes "LOVE" is too small a word.Maybe this review doesn't make much sense.Once I heard that a whole life is necessary to make a man but only takes one war to end him. War is not always a bunch of battles that destroy the world, sometimes someone has lived too much for his years. Remee and Julian have lived too much. Scars run too deep. I seriously think Suki Fleet is a liar. This is not a love story? Trust no author. O [...]

    THIS BOOK!!! THIS BLOODY BOOK!!!I don't even know what to say. I gave this one 4 stars when I finished but I feel like I want to give it a million stars because I swear I can't stop thinking about this story and about their characters.This year has sucked a little bit book wise. I have only read a few great books and most of them are just meh so it's great to read something so good from time to time.First of all, let me tell you the author is a liar. Yes, plain and simple. This is a love story, [...]

    **** 4 Stars ****Available on Kindle Unlimited.So, here I was, craving a story to rip my heart out.Oh man, this was hard. Overwhelming and full of heavy emotional content. I am not really sure, but I believe this story is fiction?? Anyone who knows the answer, please feel free to butt in. With that in mind, I am a bit stunned of how the author managed to bring so much realism into this story. The author was ruthless. No mercy was spared for us.The way she built the whole scenario of a person who [...]

    Wow.OkI found this book to be overwhelmingly depressing. And it's not because of your typical angst or plot twists. It's justI have a bit of a soft heart when it comes to homeless teenagers. There's a helplessness there that I can't get past. And it's really really hard reading the realities of what life, and survival, on the streets amounts to for these young people. Not to mention, most of them are in these predicaments because of failures by the adults in their lives. Andw I'm sobbingNow the [...]

    THIS IS A LOVE STORYY ese sería en realidad el resumen del libro, una historia de amor maravillosa.Julian y Romeo viven en las calles de Londres haciendo todo lo necesario para sobrevivir, es unas condiciones que hace que te duela el corazón al leerlo porque lo peor de todo es que esa es la vida real de algunas personas. Cuando todo se vuelve muy negro, cuando parece que no hay salida, cuando no hay nada que te motive para seguir viviendo, es lo que sienten el uno por el otro lo que les permit [...]

    I must admit that I liked this story quite a bit, as I found it to be both interesting and engaging.However, as a rule, when I read one of Suki Fleet's stories, I do tend to find myself at odds with her intensely-descriptive writing style.And it's not even that her books are chock full of lesser-used, $5 words, no. She more often than not will use common, twenty-five cent words, but $47.00 worth of them, which I find completely pulls me out of the story.As with this book, I had to put it down *t [...]

    4+ starsBRUTAL! If I had to describe this book using just one word, that would be it. I loved it but it was extremely hard to read. The writing is fantastic but the story itself is so heartbreaking, I had to take breaks from reading it. I can handle major angst in a story because it's usually mixed in with the good times. This book had no good times until the very end. I loved the characters. The author created these amazing young men and brought them to life on the page. They were so real to me [...]

    DNF at 45%WOW.I mean not the same as Susan. I mean WOW for all readers who managed to finish it.BUT. I. JUST. CAN'T.I rushed through the first half of the book not because I ENJOYED it, but because I wanted BADLY this torture to end. On the next page.But with every page I turned, it was getting worse and worse. AND WORSE. And it was WHY I did something I had never done before- I went to the end of the book and read the last chapter. HOPELESS. Then I read the Epilogue. It was kinda HEA(or was it [...]

    I've read a lot of books throughout the years. Hundreds. Probably thousands more for the rest of my life. And although I'd like to remember each story like they're my very own memory -- like glimpses of my childhood; it's just impossible. But there comes a story every once in a while in which no matter how much time has passed, or how many more characters I've met, I will still be able to remember the littlest of details; not everything though, but enough to let me feel the pinch of the things I [...]

    This book destroyed me. It ripped my heart out, page by page. Slowly. Painfully. Completely. I don’t think a book has ever affected me as much as this one. I don’t think I’ve ever cared as much about two characters as I did Romeo and Julian. This Is Not a Love Story? I disagree. I think it’s very much a love story. It’s not a *pretty* love story. No rainbows and puppy dogs, just an overwhelming amount of heartbreak and angst. But it’s still a love story. It’s a forever kind of love [...]

    Do you have favorite authors? I imagine you do, I know I have a list of special, auto-buy, favorite authors. Early in my reading career (yes, I consider myself a professional part-time reader!) I had tunnel vision and only cared about the words on the pages. This works for many and I have no judgment if that's the type of reader you are. However, as I have become a more seasoned reader, I've broadened my focus and I pay attention to the person behind the story in addition to the story itself. [...]

    Ok, I don’t even know how to start. This is a freaking rollercoaster of emotions. I’ve been sitting in front of my computer with a blank page for almost 10 minutes trying to figure out the perfect way to pour all my feelings about this book without rambling but I guess that’ll pretty difficult. (I promise I'll try to make this spoiler free and If I make spoiler I'll hide them)This book pulls very specific strings of my heart. I have a soft spot for kids/teenagers especially those who are h [...]

    Well, Suki Fleet certainly knows how to tear someone’s heart out.This Is Not A Love Story is certainly not a love story – it is a story of survival, with the two main characters so in love with each other, that they will fight with all they have to stay together. Two boys (I’d like to call them men, but they are not really), homeless and hopeless on the streets where being alone means you don’t survive long. The author has certainly explored the range of emotions a young boy feels when h [...]

    Wow! And ouch! That was painful. And beautiful. And really moving.I started This is Not a Love Story 8 days ago and finished it the next day. There is so much pain and suffering on every page that I read in a frantic, raw frenzy, desperately needing to know how each trial and tribulation would be resolved. The hardships Romeo and Julian faced were so unsettling and disturbing that I was beside myself until I arrived at each conclusion. When I finished, I knew I needed to read it again so that I [...]

    I've had this book for over a year, and have been loath to read it, mainly because I was told that it was emotional and angsty and would make me cry, and I really need to be in the right space for that.However I haven't read anything of Suki Fleet's that I haven't loved, and I read this practically in one go, and yes it is incredibly emotional, sad but with that underlying hope that SF does so well.Romeo and Julian overcome terrible situations, get pulled back down into life on the streets but a [...]

    Suki Fleet's This is Not a Love Story is certainly one of the most tender, devastating, passionate and hopeful novels I've read recently.The title claims that the book is not a love story and that rings true to me because the novel is much more than a conventional m/m romance. Remee and Julian's story is one of friendship, harshness, resilience, small acts of kindness, brutality, terrible desperation and blinding hope that resonated deeply all the way through my reading. Remee and Julian wander [...]

    All the stars.Every now and then I read a story that I can't put down and recommend to tons of people and this was definitely one of those books. The strange thing is, it was not an easy, light-hearted book but an angst-filled, heart-breaker - yet I couldn't get enough. Literally, I woke up and started reading it in the middle of the night and read until I got to the end.Set in England, on the streets of the capital, the realism of life for the homeless hits home hard in this story. Romeo is not [...]

    Beautifully written.Desperately sad.Sigh.So much love, despite a city of neglect.

    This subject matter was hard and painful. I won't focus as much on the plot, but instead I will highlight the issue of Homelessness. While this book featured two homeless youth, Romeo Danilov and Julian Lavelle, there are homeless families and war veterans out there too. Not every homeless person is an addict. According to US News & World Report, 46 million Americans live below the poverty line, that is 16% of the population. usnews/news/articles/2Romeo "Remee" was a deaf sixteen year old an [...]

    An incredibly heartbreaking, yet hopeful, story. I cried through a good portion of the book. I loved that Romeo and Julian could be so caring of each other after everything they'd been through.

    I read this book a few weeks ago and loved it. For some reason my review of this book was posted on but did not get posted on . I loved the story so much I'm reposting my review to get the word out.This Is An Awesome Story!Suki Fleet has turned me into a blubbering, emotional basket case after reading her new novel, This Is Not A Love Story.Well, this is definitely not your typical love story. But, it is a love story. It is a beautifully written story about two homeless boys, Julian and Romeo ( [...]

    Not an easy read, but a beautiful one. Suki Fleet's writing is gorgeous--lyrical and rich. Recommended for lovers of angst and hurt/comfort. Make sure you have tissues because it's not an easy ride (and nor should it be, given the subject matter).

    I don't quite know where to start with my review, or if my words can even do justice to this book. From the moment I opened it, I was captivated by Romeo/Remee and Julian's plight for survival. I. Couldn't. Put. It. Down. I started earlier in the day and was up until 2:30 in the morning finishing, because everyone else had abandoned these two young boys and I couldn't bring myself to do so as well by closing the book before I was absolutely sure Remee and Julian were safe, warm and together. I h [...]

    Months ago when the weather was still in the triple digits in the desert where I live, I bought a book. The title intrigued me, though at first it made me sing a song by Public Image Limited, but reading the blurb and seeing the MC’s named Romeo and Julian and saying this is NOT a love story? Come on. The Shakespeare nerd in me perked up and the curiosity began. I wasn’t expecting the boys to be of the Shakespeare persuasion nor the story to have a prince declaring a plague on any two houses [...]

    This is one of those stories that stays with you long after you have read it. The characters are so real and we are made to feel so deeply for them that long after putting this book down I am still caught in their world, thinking about them almost constantly.The emotional turmoil and sensory overload in this story is simply overwhelming. I cried at the end, in the middle, at the beginning. For the entire story for goodness sake (have tissues ready, because you won't want to stop reading in order [...]

    I'm not the target audience BUT how can anyone who reads this not FEEL that they are in some way exactly who the book was written for. Beautifully written, and I won't reveal the plot only to say it did heap one desperate situation on another. There is an upbeat ending - that I WILL reveal because otherwise I think many might be put off by the ongoing misery the characters have to endure.First book I've read in ages that I just could not put down.
