Review by Sophie ~ Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven


Synopsis1When Cassie Taylor met Ethan Holt at acting school, sparks flew. She was the good girl actress. He was the bad boy about campus. But one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing, Cassie and Ethan’s romance seemed destined. Until he broke her heart and betrayed her trust. Now the A-list heartthrob is back in her life and turning her world around. One touch at a time.

Cast as romantic leads once again, they’re forced to confront raw memories of the heartbreaking lows and pulse-pounding highs of their secret college affair. But they’ll also discover that people who rub each other the wrong way often make the best sparks

OMG how much did I LOVE this book!!  Such a surprise hit for me.  I loved Cassie and Ethan (even though I wanted to smack him half the time) and the chemistry they had exploded from the pages.  This story is told alternating between the past and present and it was done beautifully.  I loved getting snippets of their past relationship which gave insight to the tumultuous current relationship.  I still have so many questions and cant wait for Broken Juliet.  I need more of the angsty chemistry that Cassie and Ethan exude!!  I will say that Leisa writing style is flawless and much like a seasoned pro.  I could not believe that this was Leisa’s debut novel.  You can definitely tell that Leisa has a history in theater, her words come off the page like watching an amazing play right before your eyes.  Bravo Leisa, pleas take your bow!!

5 *****

about the author1leisa

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 Leisa’s debut novel, BAD ROMEO, will be available in a worldwide release through Macmillan Publishing in December 2014.

Leisa lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three cats, and a kangaroo named Howard.

(Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.)
