When 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
Are you looking for an angst riddled book with enough drama to keep you up all night? Then I have the book for you, the debut novel Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven. OMG this book had enough emotional twists and turns, for me not to know if I was coming or going. I was totally exhausted when I was done reading this book. Ms. Rayven not only put her character’s through the emotional wringer, but pulled me along for the ride. I felt dazed and confused as I shut the book on the last page.
The story revolves around two characters Cassie (Juliet) and Ethan (Romeo). They just happen to be actors, and their universe has collided not once, but twice. The course of true love is not smooth, I felt like I was inside of a Shakespearean play or a Greek Tragedy. I honestly could not decide which one would be better, those Greeks always did like a twist the knife tale. But look at how the original Romeo and Juliet ended up. YIKES!!! Ummm…. for the record I did think the Ethan was arrogant, and at times he rubbed me the wrong way. But, then again, I found Shakespearean Romeo had his own agenda and rubbed me the wrong way too. So if you love bad boys who are mercurial and love stories that are volatile and emotionally charged, then this is a book for you.
The questions that kept popping up in my head as I read were… Should love be bad for you? Should it hurt this darn much?
Be warned, this book does not have a neat ending as the second book, Broken Juliet, is due out April 28, 2015.
Fool me once shame on you, Fool me twice shame on me.
