Description

While performing the greatest love story of all time, they discovered one of their own...

Cassie Taylor was just another acting student with big dreams at her prestigious performing arts college...then she met Ethan Holt. She was the good girl actress. He was the bad boy on campus. But one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing on stage, Cassie and Ethan's epic romance seemed destined. Until it ended in tragedy when he shattered her heart.

Now they've made it to Broadway where they're reunited as romantic leads once again—and their passionate scenes force them to confront the heartbreaking lows and pulse-pounding highs of their intense college affair. For Ethan, losing Cassie was his biggest regret—and he's determined to redeem himself. But for Cassie, even though Ethan was her first and only great love, he hurt her too much to ever be trusted again. The trouble is, working with him again reminds her that people who rub each other the wrong way often make the best sparks. And when it comes to love, sometimes it's the things that aren't good for us that are the most irresistible.

Don't miss Leisa Rayven's Bad Romeo, the intoxicating romance beloved by over two million fans online—a story that'll captivate you and hold you breathless until the final page.

        October 27, 2014
        Rayven’s debut adult contemporary romance shows some skill with prose, but gets lost in its own tangled plot. Cassie Taylor, a young actress making her debut on Broadway, learns that her emotionally constipated ex, Ethan Holt, has been cast as her leading man. Their torrid college affair began when they played Romeo and Juliet together, and Cassie doesn’t want to give Ethan another chance to break her heart. But Ethan is determined to show Cassie that he’s changed, and that onstage chemistry can lead to offstage happiness. As their relationship in the present progresses, a separate thread portrays the painful self-destruction of their previous connection. Rayven creates a plausible snapshot of two overdramatic, psychologically damaged people unable to get over one another or to make their relationship work, but both Cassie and Ethan are so wounded, vicious, and unpleasant that the theoretically happy ending is completely unbelievable—and undesirable. Agent: Christina Hogrebe, Jane Rotrosen Agency.

        Cassie and Ethan were thrown together as the stars of their campus production of Romeo and Juliet. In real life, the romance that ensued ended in a broken heart for Cassie. Now they're performing the same roles on Broadway, and Cassie is faced with a decision--a complicated relationship can be exciting, but is it worth the risk of being hurt again?
