totally devoured this book in one sitting and LOVE LOVE LOVED it Just pure awesome If you re a fan of intensely passionate love stories I m talking the kind of love that doesn t let go even after years apart and the deepest hurt, where you just know in your heart that these two people are meant for each other, then you have to read this series Plus Ethan Holt is this deliciously tormented, moody, and insanely hot bad boy whose love for Cassie Taylor is guaranteed to melt your heartDo you feel this he whispers This is what makes us keep coming back, despite everything we ve gone through This is why I had to change, and why, despite how much I hurt you, you can t walk away The way we sink into each other The way I can t tell my heartbeat from yours It s about thisI don t want to give away too much of the story but basically this is a second chance romance We saw the beginning of Ethan and Cassie s story in Bad Romeo where they met in drama school and had this intense connection that pulled them together After a tumultuous on and off but always in love relationship, he finally broke her heart for the last time and they were separated for years When they are cast together as romantic leads in a major production of Romeo and Juliet, they re faced once again with their undeniable chemistry and Ethan is now determined to win back Cassie s heart and prove to her beyond a shadow of a doubt that he s sorry, that he s changed, and that he has never stopped loving herI meant every word, and if you let me in, I ll prove it to you Show you Love you Please He brushes his lips against my ear, and it makes me tremble.He wraps his fingers around mine and pulls them away from the door You want to hold on to something he says Hold on to meGah Ethan Holt I love him so much Honestly, he s very much the kind of hero I m drawn too What can I say, I love the tortured, tormented guys especially when they re beyond in love with their girl I think there s something about the struggle that they have to overcome in order to be with their loves that makes me feel for them eventhan usual It s like an extra measure of sacrifice and effort My heart really broke for him This guy was so convinced that the people he loved would eventually hurt him that he either shut them out or left them before they could do the damage, but just ended up hurting everyoneso as a result I think the most painful thing of all was how though everything the mistakes in his past, all the hurt he caused her it was always so clear to me just how much he loved herFuck, Cassie, I know the right thing to do is leave you alone But when I think about doing that, it He grips his chest It fucking hurtsHe didn t want to be that way, and he never wanted to hurt her He just didn t believe he could ever be the kind of guy she wanted or who deserved her even though she loved him exactly as he was.What I really appreciated though was that the story took the time to show you what he was going through Honestly, even though it was a mistake, I ended up understanding why he left that second time His breaking point made sense to me Gah, they were so deeply dysfunctional even though they were so madly in love So, I got it I definitely did And then I just wanted to hug himHe pulls back leans his forehead on mine, eyes closed Onechance is all I need to prove how different we can be Please I know second chances are hard to come by and here I am asking for a third, but fuck, I need you And despite everything, you need me, too Just say yes PleaseThis story made my heart race I could just feel in every single scene how much these two people were meant for each other They had this connection, this pull, this undeniable chemistry that drew them to each other over and over again It just rolled off the page I felt it From the first page to the last.My favorite stories are the ones about a love so strong that even the most painful of heartbreaks can t ever truly break it And this was one of those But I loved the way it was balanced out with little outbreaks of humor that would catch me off guard Here I was reading this crazy madly in love, passionate forever soulmate, epic romance and I d be totally wrapped up in it with my heart pounding in my throat and then suddenly I would just laugh out right loud over a hilarious line So perfect Just like with the first book, this one went back and forth between their past and present It would fill in the missing pieces of their past while moving their present day story forward I loved the way these blended together As a huge fan of second chance romances, this is a storytelling method I m quite fond of and this author pulled it off seamlessly.If you re looking for a passionate love story with a bad boy hero who will both melt and break your heart and have you swooning like crazy over how much he loves the heroine, then this is the perfect series for you It had everything I look for in a romance in the perfect measure I highly recommend it Rating 4.5 stars My review of Book 1 Forof my reviews, book news and updates Main blog Aestas Book Blog Facebook Blog Page Twitter Subscribe by email

    Every once in a while I crave an angsty, emotionally charged read I knew that reconnecting with Cassie and Ethan, after the way things were left between the two, would definitely pull at my heartstrings Without a doubt, this book delivered on all of those points.Cassie and Ethan are all grown up now, but still being held back by their pasts Neither one of them ever recovered fully from their devastating break up They haven t really moved on or moved past their high school romance.When Ethan Every once in a while I crave an angsty, emotionally charged read I knew that reconnecting with Cassie and Ethan, after the way things were left between the two, would definitely pull at my heartstrings Without a doubt, this book delivered on all of those points.Cassie and Ethan are all grown up now, but still being held back by their pasts Neither one of them ever recovered fully from their devastating break up They haven t really moved on or moved past their high school romance.When Ethan tries to make amends with Cassie, begging for another chance and confessing his undying love, the two set out to repair the damage The story is told in both past and present, revealing exactly where these two went so wrong, then subsequently watching them try to fix it years later If you re looking for teenage melodrama and angst, look no farther.While I was in the mood for an emotional, drama filled read, I d be lying if I said that the same things I love about this story didn t drive me crazy at times This story definitely has an overly dramatic, teenage feel to it You know, that whole the world is going to end type of melodrama This book had it in spades Sometimes I just wanted to slap Ethan and tell him to get over himself with his self loathing act Despite my eye rolling, I still found myself rooting for these two A part of me wanted to tell Cassie that she must be stupid to keep taking this guy back Another part of me delighted at the idea of them finally reuniting What can I say I m a romantic at heart In the end, I really enjoyed this angsty, melodramatic love story I m a sucker for first loves and this book did not disappoint It was infuriating, but it was also sweet It was nice to get the closure for this couple that I didn t get at the end of the last book

    3.5 Broken stars It s no secret that I had been less than impressed with Bad Romeo, so I went into this book with a healthy dose of skepticism Broken Juliet starts off where Bad Romeo left off with Cassie on a cusp of deciding whether to give Ethan another chance or not This was the third time that she was going to be giving Ethan, so I understood why she was hesitant Although, it s quite clear that she was still very much in love with Ethan, she also doesn t trust him.Like Bad Romeo, we get 3.5 Broken stars It s no secret that I had been less than impressed with Bad Romeo, so I went into this book with a healthy dose of skepticism Broken Juliet starts off where Bad Romeo left off with Cassie on a cusp of deciding whether to give Ethan another chance or not This was the third time that she was going to be giving Ethan, so I understood why she was hesitant Although, it s quite clear that she was still very much in love with Ethan, she also doesn t trust him.Like Bad Romeo, we get to revisit the past when Ethan and Cassie are both theater majors at the Grove in Westchester, New York In Bad Romeo, we find out that Ethan left Cassie twice but we never got to find out why In this book we did and it was just Ethan feeling he s not good enough for Cassie believing that he s too damage to be able to love her They first time they broke up, Cassie was devastated but after a year, they started being sort of friends and started flirting until they gave in and hooked up with no promises or strings attached That one hook up turned into two, three until they were fully hooking up in secret Since things were never simple when it comes to their relationship, Cassie and Ethan, tried again during their senior year They were truly happy but then old jealousies resurfaced and suddenly, Ethan pushed Cassie away for one last time So what did I like I really liked the present Ethan and Cassie I see their growth Ethan for one was different I liked that Cassie didn t immediately jump into a reconciliation with Ethan She made him work for it Ethan, for his part, had been very patient He never pushed Cassie to forgive him I also liked the transition between past and present this time around In the previous book, the transition was a bit jarring This time, it flowed smoothly Plus, Liesa Rayven s writing really shined through The dialogue was excellent and Cassie s growth as a character was evident in the way he handled Ethan and view spoiler and her parent s divorce, which broke my heart by the way hide spoiler But the best part of the book for me was during what I refer to as Cassie and Ethan s hook up period That part was hot as it was entertaining Ethan was actually less annoying and less emo and it made a huge difference to me as a reader because I found myself smiling and rooting for them But of course, someone had to ruin itsigh I m looking at you Ethan.Seriously, this dude was whacked I get that he is troubled whatever that means but I never sympathized with him His issues were, I felt, shallow Sure, he felt unloved but his reaction and the way he handled his pain was just annoying and cowardly His issues weren t totally discussed in the book either or maybe it was discussed but I never considered it as justification for the way he acted towards Cassie and other people He was broody and moody and not in an attractive way at all Second, the diary thing It appeared again but this time, it was Ethan s diary and not Cassie s It s not bad but I just found it cheesy sometimes I could have done away with it and I would still be okay with the story But I guess it served to inform the readers about Ethan s feelings for Cassie Overall, I enjoyed this one despite some of the issues I had I actually loved the ending and how everything got wrapped up together at the end It wasn t tied up in a pretty bow sort of ending but it fits Cassie and Ethan Would I recommend this one Definitely, yes I felt that story wise, Broken Juliet offered a lotthan Bad Romeo I am looking forward to Ethan s sister story which is going to the third book in the series ARC provided by St Martin s Griffin.
