Prison Guard Rome falls in love with inmate Julio, after Julio is injured by another inmate and placed in solitary for his own protection, but their love is dangerous for both of them and has tragic consequences. This is a Medium Security story (contains moderate kink and fetishes), and is a modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, in a contemporary prison setting. I was a little skeptical at first that Romeo and Juliet could be revamped in such a way, but this was really good and was quite a faithful retelling. Loved the characters! Does Merc have his own story?
