BOOK DETAILS
(from NightOwl Reviews)
"Loved. Loved. Loved BAD ROMEO and BROKEN JULIET. I now have a serious book hangover. Leisa Rayven, thank you for all the feels." -- E. L. James
“Hilarious, heartwarming and unique, the Starcrossed series is highly recommended.” –USA TODAY
The one guy she can’t have is the one she can’t forget.
Liam Quinn is one of the biggest movie stars in the world…and the only man Elissa Holt has ever truly loved.
After being out of her life for six years, he and his gorgeous fiancé are set to star in the new Broadway show Elissa is stage managing. The only trouble is, when late night rehearsals bring Elissa and Liam together, the line between what is and what could have been gets blurred. Now one moment of weakness is about to create a scandal that will echo around the world.
Elissa knows that falling for Liam again would be a tragedy in the making, but as any good romantic knows, love doesn’t always follow the script.
“With the perfect balance of humor, steam, angst and impossible to put down, Leisa Rayven is a gifted storyteller, and Wicked Heart is truly exceptional.” –NATASHA IS A BOOK JUNKIE

AUTHOR
Leisa Rayven Writing has always been a passion for Leisa, and even though she originally intended to be an actress, it wasn't long into her time at drama school that she began writing plays.

Those plays were bad. Very bad. Well, her friends thought they were good, but that's because they were always cast in them and any opportunity to be on stage was met with an obnoxious amount of enthusiasm.

Since then, she's honed her craft, and several of her plays have been produced and toured throughout Australia.

These days, playwriting has given way to fiction writing, and she is now the proud mother of two book babies, BAD ROMEO, and BROKEN JULIET. (Macmillan New York)

Her third book, WICKED HEART, will be released on May 3rd, 2016.

Leisa lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three judgemental cats, and a kangaroo named Howard. (*NB: Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.*) 


REVIEW
Love, if you like books about love, then this is for you.  It was written after Bad Romeo, Broken Juliet. What happens  when you want someone so bad and you can't have him?  Your heart breaks. This book has the romance along with humor.  It will make your heart all warm and fuzzy.
Elissa has loved Liam Quinn from afar.  Liam is a big movie star.  She's had eyes for no one else. After six years,Liam and his gorgeous girlfriend are scheduled to appear in a Broadway show. Elissa is the stage manager and spends late rehearsal nights.  Can you imagine what Elissa feels watching Liam at close range?  She wants this man and always has. Can one moment of letting your guard down be one moment of regret? Love is a creature all of its own.  It shows no mercy.  It happens sometimes no matter how hard we try to keep from it.  Does Elissa bring to light the love she has felt for years?  Does Liam feel anything at all for Elissa?  Maybe this is a tragedy waiting to  happen. The author wrote this book with a lot of heat, some humor and a story that you the reader, can't let go.  You are hooked as soon as you start reading.  You can so relate to Elissa and how she feels about Liam?  Haven't you ever wanted a man you knew you couldn't have? You could say that Elissa needs to move on, but sometimes love takes a stronghold. As is said, "Only love can break a heart, only love can mend it again."

I was given a complimentary copy of this book from the author, Leisa Rayven and NightOwl Reviews for my unbiased review. No  other compensation took place.

I would give this book 4.5 STARS.
