Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven ARC Review

Title: Bad Romeo
Author: Leisa Rayven
Series: The Starcrossed Series #1
Release Date: December 23, 2014

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.

Five Stars

WOW!!! LOVED THIS ONE....It was like 250 pages of really intense foreplay!!

Honestly, this was the second book in a row that I read that had no sex until the very end. I kinda loved that about it!!

Cassie and Ethan had such a love/hate/lust thing at times my head was spinning. I am not sure what it was but this was one of those stories that you felt so much for both characters that you really wanted the HEA for them. No worries, I promise you'll get there but it is a long, exhausting, sexually frustrating ride!

I think my favorite parts were when they did plays together, so hot!! I loved it all but the play scenes were super sexy!!

Ok, so we're really doing this. A sex scene between a virgin and the man who hates that he wants her. Should be fun.

I got this great book from Netgalley and thought it sounded good, but I love when I stumble upon a gem like this. I can't wait for book two and I highly recommend it to pretty much everyone!

Book Links:

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.)
