Book Review: Broken Juliet by Leisa Rayven

I am THRILLED to share my review for Broken Juliet. It is officially one of my favorites for 2015 and I thought it was the perfect conclusion for Ethan and Cassie. This is part 2 so make sure to read Bad Romeo first (it was a favorite for 2014)!

Broken Juliet

Broken Juliet (Starcrossed #2) by Leisa Rayven



How do you fix a love that's been broken beyond repair?

For years, Cassie Taylor tried to forget about Ethan Holt. He was the one great love of her life, and when he failed to return her love, 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. Claiming to be a changed man, he's finally able to say all the things she needed to hear years ago, but can she believe him? What makes this time different from all his other broken promises?

Ethan knows he can't change their tumultuous past, but if he's going to have any chance of being with the woman he loves, he'll need to convince Cassie that her future belongs with him.

Don't miss this stunning conclusion to the unforgettable love story that captivated over two million fans online.



5 out of 5 stars

6 stars. Leisa Rayven is brilliant storyteller.

Sometimes you pick up a book and read it but it's more than just a book, it's a whole other world that you're lost in. You become a part of it. You feel the angst and tension, love and lust. The push and pull. You feel the happy and the gut wrenching moments. It's a story that makes you laugh and cry. It makes you feel everything. You may even realize you've been holding your breath because you're just so in the moment of the emotion. That was this story. Captivating, beautiful, and heart wrenching. Broken Juliet is a full circle epic love story, when paired with Bad Romeo will leave you breathless.

Everything was just amazingly wonderful. Ethan and Cassie are rich, detailed characters with unbelievable chemistry and pull to one another. There were so many past and present parallels between both of them, it was fantastic. This was so emotional, very intense. Filled with passion and vulnerability from both characters. There are so many poignant moments that take place from Ethan's past all the way to when Cassie becomes who she is in the present. You can see and feel those moments when Cassie significantly changes into who her future self is. So much growth paired with heartache. So many times I was happy and hopeful. Other times I was gutted. There were also these lighter moments, fun little things that were interspersed and I was so thankful for them because I was a well of emotion while reading. 

Brilliantly crafted. Excellent build. Amazing story about two broken souls that find love that left me full of emotion and elation. Beautiful beyond belief!  I'm not sure what else to say because there are just so many layers and facets to Ethan and Cassie’s characters and their story. So much depth and pain and love and it was just perfect. 

You just have to read it. It's a definite must read.

Bad Romeo

Bad Romeo (#1) - Amazon US | Amazon UK | My Review

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.
