Some loves never let you go…

Cassie swore she'd never forgive Ethan for breaking her heart when they were in acting school years ago. He was her one great love, and when he refused to love her back, a part of her died forever…or so she thought. Now she and Ethan are sharing a Broadway stage, and he's determined to win her back. Finally he's able to say all the things she needed to hear years ago…but can she believe him? Has he really changed, and what makes this time different from all his other broken promises?

The answer lies somewhere in the past, and now the truth will come to light. Will Cassie rediscover what it's like to be trusting and open again--the way she was before Ethan? Or is it too late for these star-crossed lovers?

Don't miss this mesmerizing final chapter in the Bad Romeo duet, the unforgettable love story that captured the hearts of over two million fans online.


review

“Tell me how to stop loving you, Cassie. Please. I have no fucking clue.”

Oh this book! I picked up Bad Romeo as an audible “read” and fell in love with these characters. Both layered with deep emotions, Cassie and Ethan had me hooked!   I knew that Broken Juliet would be breathtakingly beautiful and I wasn’t wrong.

“For all its amazing strength, our hearts are made of eggshells, and sometimes all it takes is someone you’d almost given up on declaring their love for it to crack wide open.”

After finishing this Shakespearean tragedy/love affair my heart was in knots. Ethan, so beautifully flawed he had me aching to reach through my kindle and hold him tight. Cassie, jaded by her personal lovesick tragedy had my heart on guard. The same love story yet two totally different emotions, these two characters were beautifully written. Their raw emotions will keep your heart at attention.

Leisa’s writing is truly remarkable. Her words played out on the pages as if watching the story unfold live. Through Cassie and Ethan’s eyes you feel every painful goodbye and heart stopping reunion. By marrying her story with the stage, Leisa has allowed the reader to experience multiple levels of emotions. On an off the stage both Cassie and Ethan command attention. This love affair will stay with you long after the curtain falls and the story is complete. Bravo Leisa!

“This is precious. This is love. This is something I’ll never take for granted, because I know how it feels to be without it.”

About Leisa Rayven

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.

Leisa lives in Australia with her husband, two little boys, three judgemental cats, and a kangaroo named Howard. (*NB: Howard may or may not be her imaginary marsupial friend. Everyone should have one.*)
