ALP Synopsis1

Liam Quinn is talented, gorgeous, and one of the biggest movie stars in the world.

He’s also the only man Elissa Holt has ever truly loved.

After being out of her life for six years, he and his gorgeous fiancé are set to star in the new Broadway show Elissa is stage managing. The only trouble is, when late night rehearsals bring Elissa and Liam together, the line between what is and what could have been gets blurred, and one moment of weakness will create a scandal that echoes around the world.

Elissa knows that falling for Liam again would be a tragedy in the making, but as any good romantic will tell you, love doesn’t always follow the script.

*This is the third novel is the STARCROSSED Series BUT, it’s 100% standalone

BRAVO!! This most certainly deserves a standing ovation. I was nervous going into this book because I was curious if Liam and Elissa’s story could live up to my love for the first two books in the series. I am beyond pleased to say YES IT DOES & THEN SOME! I am not normally a shouty capital and exclamation point kind of reviewer but those are highly deserved for that experience.

To say I loved the story is a huge understatement. Rayven once again brings her theatrical background to the story but magnified the drama with some big screen flare. There were paparazzi and a few undesirable characters determined to muck things up and I loved watching those scenes unravel. And let’s not forget the secrets and lies that kept me guessing as the story unfolded.

The connection between Elissa and Liam was intense and undeniable. Watching them fight the pull was frustrating but watching them succumb was nothing short of MAGICAL. If you enjoy  romance, angst and drama – Hollywood style, then this book is perfect for you and is best enjoyed after reading Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet. This is definitely a favorites for 2016 and I can’t wait for what comes next from Rayven. She is a MUST READ author for me.

Overall rating: 5 Stars

I was provided a complimentary copy from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

LeisaWriting 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.)
