Review: Bad Romeo by Leisa Rayven

Friday, May 20, 2016

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

My Review
Let me start off by saying...what in the world took me so long to read this?! I have had Bad Romeo on my TBR list for....well, since it came out. i am glad I waited so long because there is no way I wouldn't have gone nuts waiting for Broken Juliet after reading this. To say Bad Romeo had me hooked on this story is a huge understatement. I literally hid in the bathroom at work just so I could finish up a chapter because I needed to know what was going to be happening.

Although having the chapters taking place in the past and then again in the present did kind of leave me dizzy but it was essential for the book in order to get the readers to understand what had happened between Ethan and Cassie- who by the way, had so much angst between them that it actually had me anxious. Ethan Holt is full of issues that make it impossible for him to be in a fully functional relationship and it was kind of hard to watch him struggle with his obvious feelings for Cassie.

God, this book was just...spectacular. It was angsty and beautiful all at the same time. It even had me cracking up at some of the lines spoken between the characters. Cassie was hilarious and sweet but she was also vulnerable and so open about her feelings. She was an open book- Ethan was like a book with all the pages superglued together, preventing it from opening. It was incredible watching them both come together and try to stay that way.

I loved it. Love love loved. Ethan Holt is the best Bad Romeo there is.
