    FULL REVIEW NOW POSTED Leisa Rayven will make you laugh, cry, and swoon in this fantastic addition to the Starcrossed series Elissa and Liam s love story is brimming with emotion, intensity, and hotness that will keep your heart racing Once you start reading this book, you won t be able to stop 5 STARS I m not saying goodbye, he says as he shoves his hands in his pockets Because this isn t over One day, fate s going to fix this Bring us back together I believe that Whenever you start a Leisa Rayven book, you know you re in for a roller coaster of feels and romance From the very first chapter, the intensity sparked when Elissa was confronted with the only man she d ever loved who happened to also be the same man who broke her heart and her trust after years apart without so much as a goodbye They d met six years ago by chance and, even though she promised herself she d never give her heart to an actor, they d fallen for each other But Hollywood was calling his name and life just didn t allow them to stay together then And when his actions crushed her, her heart was never same After their brief time together, she went on to become a Broadway stage manager, and he became the world s hottest, most successful, and lusted after movie star And as luck would have it, he landed the lead in the Broadway show she was currently managing, throwing all their past hurt, longings, desires, and heart break right back into the spotlight That alone was enough to turn her world upside down, but to further complicate matters, his co star happened to also be his beautiful, sweet fiance.RECIPE FOR ANGST In that moment, he s not a movie star, and I m not his stage manager We re the same two desperately connected people who fell down a rabbit hole years earlier and climbed out forever changed Now, I know that some of you are going to read the blurb and think this book is a love triangle, and I know some of you don t like love triangles I don t either buuuuuuut grins just trust me on this one, okay I don t care if you adore or detest love triangles, if you re a fan of romance, read this book TRUST ME You ll be thanking me by the end, I can almost guarantee it It s very rare for me to say this, but this book is genuinely PERFECT In my eyes it is 150% perfection Actually, I d even go so far as to say that This is the best book I ve read this year I ve missed you, Liss It hurts not seeing you for all those years, but this You being right here and me not being able to have you Hurts so much Every single interaction between Elissa and Liam was supercharged with spine tingling feels and raw sexual tension I was laughing out loud one moment, swooning the next, fanning myself, hyperventilating, tearing up, falling in love This book put me through almost every single emotion you can think of I felt for Liss so strongly as I was reading The whole book is told from her POV so all you see is her side of the story which was perfect for this book, by the way and my heart broke right alongside hers because this girl had actually really gone out on a limb, against everything her instincts told her, and trusted him She d had this amazing time with a man she fought so hard to believe in, and then just when she d given her heart over, he d broken it And now here he was right back in her life again With him half a world a way, it had been easier to forget the pain, but with him right here and engaged to someone else, while her feelings for him were just as strong as they d been when they first met IT TORE MY HEART OUT Jesus Christ He rakes his fingers through his hair Could you please stop talking to me like you re my bank manager Like we don t even know each other I don t know you any You re the only one who s ever known me At one point, I even cried She d done everything in her power to protect her heart but when she fell for him, she fell with all her heart and soul She fell forever And the pain of her not being able to have him just about broke me I wanted to hug her, slap some sense into him, cuff them to each other, and march them down to Vegas for an immediate wedding because THEY NEEDED TO BE TOGETHER Dammit.Seriously I almost couldn t take the angst I wanted to simulaneously hug the book has hard as I could and throw it across the room THERE IS A LIMIT TO WHAT ONE HEART CAN TAKE Gah Feels So many feels And then taking a step back to a serious look on this situation, it was like ok, let s be honest I love Liam and as Elissa says he makes me swoon like it s his damn job, but how am I actually supposed to forgive this dude for what he did I mean, he makes my heart melt into a puddle of goo every time he comes near her but I was genuinely getting nervous that there was really no way out of this mess.BUT THEN Ahhhhhhh A huuuuuge reveal that just ahhh Omg YES YES YES It was perfect BRILLIANT I did not see it coming I repeat DID NOT SEE IT COMING Like, I didn t even suspect this.You guys, Liam is pure book boyfriend material He ll make your heart melt as soon as you meet him, but once you learn his secrets, be prepared to swoon even harder It s been a long time since I fell this strongly in love with a book boyfriend, but if I had to pick, he d be right up there with the old school favorites like Kellan and Travis and Will Just give him a chance and before you know it, he ll steal your heart I notice that every single person has their eyes glued to him, and this is why he s a star Liam is one of those actors who just has it It s part talent, and part confidence, and just enough raw vulnerability to make you want to fuck him and hug him at the same time Leisa Rayven is brilliant She is the queen of angsty romance Her books have the perfect balance between angst and emotions that always delivers a heart felt, deeply satisfying love story With the way she pulled this book together, she has completely gained my trust as an author It was genius From now on, I will read anything and everything she writes next Honestly, even if she were to write a book about a subject that I m not comfortable with, I d still read it without question because I totally feel like I trust the direction she d take the story in I can t tell you enough how much I LOVED THIS BOOK.Wicked Heart can be read as a completely separate standalone novel You do not need to read any other books before reading this Unless you want to So, how does this relate to the other Starcrossed books Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet are a duet about another couple Ethan Cassie Ethan is the brother of Elissa, the heroine of this book Wicked Heart is a single standalone novel about Elissa Liam I ve read all three books and highly recommend them all But you can easily choose to only read Bad Romeo Broken Juliet, or you can only read Wicked Heart, or you can read them all together The choice is yours.This book rocked my world It is the perfect read for fans of heart racingly intense angst, smoking hot romance, and passionate love stories I highly recommend pre ordering it immediately and clearing your schedules for release day because once you start this book, you won t able to stop You re everything to me You always have been Rating 5 STARS Can be read as a standalone Pre order WICKED HEART Kindle Pre Order WICKED HEART Paperback __________________________ For of my reviews, book news and updates Main

    5 stars After reading three books by Leisa Rayven, I have now dubbed her the queen of second chance romance This woman writes angsty second chance romance stories better than anyone All three of her books have been huge hits for me I devoured this one I started it and read it in one sitting When you start this book, be prepared to read into the wee hours of the night You will be unable to put it down It was completely addictive.Elissa Holt is Ethan Holt s sister and the best stage manager around She is amazing at her job, but she s being tested She is now a stage manager to a show that Liam Quinn is staring in Liam, her gorgeous, sweet, funny and sexy ex AND it s not just Liam It s his fianc , Angel, too Things with Liam and Elissa ended six years ago It s still a mystery about what exactly happened, but things aren t always as they seem Things are strained between them, but Elissa is ever the professional Or she tries to be Thankfully, she has a best friend roommate named Josh that has her back There were a lot of parts in the story that stressed me out in the best way I had to know what had happened to cause this divide between these two It s so glaringly obvious that something is still there Goddamit I hate this Love Longing Attraction Need Everything he brings out in me I m so tired of wanting what I can t have Wanting him I can t do it any I know what you re thinking if you ve read the blurb but put anything you re thinking out of your mind I swear this was so different than I expected it to be and in the best way possible Things I thought were going to bother me in the beginning were such non issues I loved both Elissa and Liam so much, but let me tell you about Josh Josh kind of stole the book for me He was fantastic, hilarious and the best friend ever I would love a Josh book I also thought Angel was pretty great and I didn t even want to like her from the start I couldn t help myself Wicked Heart is another fabulous addition to Rayven s Starcrossed series If you re looking for a read that s captivating and addicting and you love slightly angsty, sexy and fun second chance romances pick this one up You won t be disappointed One thing you re absolutely not allowed to give up on is true love When you find it, you should grab it with both hands and never let go, because although it might not always be easy or convenient, it s worth it

    FIVE STARS Netgalley ARC Heartache doesn t teach you to be resilient It teaches you to protect your fragility It teaches you to fear love And it draws a bright red circle around all the ways you ve failed as a person and laughs while you cry.LOVED THIS ONE SO HARD I don t know where to even begin with my review on this book I want to start off by saying that you can t judge an author by only having read one book by them I was one of the rare few that didn t love BAD ROMEO I actually kind of despised it I decided that I wouldn t bother to continue on with this series A month ago, I received an email from the publisher, offering a Netgalley ARC of WICKED HEART Not sure why I accepted it, but THANK GOD I DID This book was so addicting for me It was seriously book crack I loved the story and I loved the characters Most of all I fell pretty hard for Liam Quinn He is nothing short of SPECTACULAR I am now wholeheartedly apologizing to Leisa Rayven for having doubted her writing ability and I am officially going to be fangirling over her when I meet her this summer Lissa Holt is Ethan s, from Bad Romeo, younger sister She s currently working as the Production Manager on the Broadway rendition of Shakespeare s Taming of the Shrew She s about to come face to face with the man who obliterated her heart, Liam Quinn He s the male lead in the show and he s the one guy she broke her no dating actors rule for, six years ago It has taken Lissa years to get over the heartache Liam caused but with just one look, all those feelings come rushing back What s worse is Liam s co star on the show, Angel Bell, is his fianc and Lissa will be forced to witness their tender and loving gestures towards each other on a daily basis When Liam finally crosses paths with Lissa, it is very apparent that she still has an effect on him and there is a tortured sadness in his eyes From there, we are brought back six years in the past, where these two first met I loved the transition to the past because in this one we follow it all the way through The author doesn t alternate every chapter between the past and present We get a few chapters in the beginning that are in the present and then we are transported back to the past and we don t come back to present day until the whole story from how these two met and fell in love and then lost that love is totally explained to us I LOVED how Lissa and Liam first met and how that first date ended made me weak in the knees It s just how I d fantasize about meeting that once in a lifetime true love I felt the butterflies in my stomach the entire time.At the time that the two met, Liam was a construction worker and Lissa was a production manager on the set of the Broadway rendition of Romeo and Juliet After their beautiful night together, Lissa refused to give her number to Liam The girl was seriously NUTS But she did mention that there were open auditions for the part of Romeo and Liam decides to give it a try So this is how the two meet up again Unfortunately, he gets the part and Lissa has a very strict rule about not dating anyone that she works with For two months they have to endure the torture of seeing each other every day but not being able to be with each other Let me just say I was in agony along with the two of them and HOLY HELL, on the night that the show is finally over when these two finally get together again, my freaking panties nearly disintegrated The sex is seriously EXPLOSIVE I was panting and just relieved that they were finally together, but it was bittersweet because Liam was off for Hollywood the next day My heart hurt so much for the two of them.I loved that there were some refreshing surprises in this one Like I had expected to really despise Angel, but she ends up being a real sweetheart and it s literally impossible to dislike this character The angst was just on the verge of unbearable but it was oh so good Even though I predicted what the true story was behind all the angst, it never did take away from my pure enjoyment of this book Liam Quinn had my heart from the beginning and by the end I decided he is so worthy of being added to my top ten book boyfriends of all time list.WICKED HEART is due out on May 16th Don t let this one slip through your fingertips Get that one click trigger finger ready ladies Liam is waiting for you Even though this is book three in the series, it can be read as a standalone So see, you have nothing standing in your way, well except for the nine day wait

    4 Wickedly Swooning Stars I buddyread this book with sis Bea Click her name to read her review Wicked Heart, for me, was like a tornado of emotions Ever read a book where you find yourself swooning yet you feel scared at the same time because you know your heart s going to break at the later part That s exactly what I felt while reading this book Gratefully, it ended with a perfect HEA, so no complaints at all from my satisfied heart Leisa Rayven has quickly become one of my favorite authors in the New Adult genre This author really has the gift of hooking her readers and making them feel drawn because of her awesomely attractive and well defined characters and of course, her brilliant writing style and beautiful romantic plot Once again, I m awed I loved Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet and I also loved this book Wicked Heart focuses on Elissa and Liam s story Elissa, an aspiring stage manager, met Liam one day Having been broken hearted a few times by her ex boyfriends who happened to be actors, she swore she will never ever date and fall in love with one ever again But when she learned that Liam was aspiring to become an actor, her heart became confused whether to continue her romantic affair with him or not An opportunity that offered a promising future to Liam s career eventually came to him which led him to abandon Elissa and go to New York This changed their relationship to a whole new level and Elissa ended up broken hearted After years of being apart, they met and sparks once again flew Love in an asshole It doesn t care about people s plans It s never convenient It crawls inside of you at the most ridiculous times and makes you feel, whether you like it or not And even after the time when you should have learned to stop loving someone, it just keeps holding on to them I fell in love with the way the author plotted the scenarios here It made me miss Ethan and Cassie when they were still working together as actors at The Grove because of the stage works done by the characters What made me even fall in love with this book was LIAM effin QUINN Darn, why do book Gods continue to shower us with such oozing hot male characters Liam is definitely one of them The only thing that quite bothered me maybe it was just me was Elissa s character It s ironic how I find the jolly, naughty Cassie in her character Like no difference at all When I ve read Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet last year, I saw Elissa as someone who s a bit demure or if I m not wrong, a woman with a sense of fashion and sophistication In this book, however, I thought her character changed or my perception with her character changed, either ways.Also, I find Liam most of the time an a hole What he did to Elissa during the first half of the book was really frustrating and unforgivable However, he was able to redeem himself in the end and yes, I forgave him and loved him for that.The journey that both Liam and Elissa went through in this book was really beautiful How they were able to come back to each other after years of being apart that was so heart warming It made me cry and want to simultaneously punch things just because ALL THE FEELS In the words of Ancient Chinese proverb, it s all very well for the bird and the fish to fall in love, but where will they make their home All in all, Wicked Heart is wickedly and heart breakingly beautiful Definitely a must read if you are into romantic NA reads with broken and gorgeous heroes I am excited to find out what Leisa Rayven has in store for us in the future Thank you to St Martin s Press for generously sending me an ARC in exchange for an honest review

    4.5 Stars Heartache doesn t teach you to be resilient It teaches you to protect your fragility It teaches you to fear love And it draws a bright red circle around all the ways you ve failed as a person and laughs while you cry I feel like I ve been run over by the angst truck I don t know whether I want a drink, a hug, or a cigarette All I know is that I love the absolute hell out of this book and I m not even a little sorry As a self professed angst whore, second chance romance happens to be my favorite catnip I lurve it Seriously If there s a grovel involved Putty Just scrub my completely melted self off of the floor and go about your business because I can t even So when I read the blurb to this book, I knew I had to read it COnfession time I didn t love the first two books in this series hides I know, I know But save your rotten tomatoes because while I didn t love the characters, I knew this author was gonna be one to watch out for me The woman writes good angst and the feels she s able to pack into it, I gobbled right up So I knew it was just a matter of time before she was going to give me characters to swoon over and luckily for me, Liss and Liam were that I m not saying goodbye, he says as he shoves his hands in his pockets Because this isn t over One day, fate s going to fix this Bring us back together I believe that Liam wasn t a famous action star when he first met Lissa But for one day six years ago, he was her everything That is until he walked away and shattered her heart Lisa never quite recovered and she s held herself aloof to all men since Now a successful stage manager, she gets the shock of a life time when not only is the new star of the show she s working on the love of her life, Liam But the co star is his gorgeous and disgustingly sweet finance, who s also impossible to hate.Enter ber angst Holy mother You GUYS I couldn t get enough of them The tension was so thick and palpable, you can practically taste it And It Was Delicious.I didn t know what I was feeling I wanted to hate Liam, but it was impossible I wanted Lissa to make Liam grovel, but I also got why she couldn t The connection they share is so obvious, and the chemistry between them was so hot, it made it completely impossible to put the book down for even a second I used to think that if I just waited long enough, fate would bring us back together That our stars would align, or whatever, and you d come crashing back into my life to stay But that didn t happen So now I say, screw it I m done waiting Sometimes, fate is what you make it The one thing that I need from a second chance romance is a good reason for the separation I want to understand it, I want to feel it, and I really got that here When everything is finally revealed, it s like the puzzle pieces all clicked together It just made sense And I loved that we got that It wasn t some silly miscommunication or something ridiculous It just made you connect with the characters that much .Wicked Heart is an angsty and emotional roller coaster with enough sexual tension to make even the toughest reader hurt It was effortless in its execution and beautiful in its delivery Liam and Lissa together were absolute perfection If you don t head over heels for Liam Quinn, we haven t been reading the same book Ask me to give up a limb and I swear, I ll find a way to do it But don t ask me to live without you any I can t I m so goddamn in love with you, it hurts I already can t wait for the next tale that this talented author has in mind.I did wish for a little from the ending, which is what kept this from being a full 5 stars for me But overall it was still a fantastic read ARC courtesy of publisher in exchange for an honest reviewFind me on

    4 STARS How long does it take to fall in love A second A week A year Ethan Holt s sister, Elissa Holt had met the love of her life six years ago In this novel you fall for Liam Quinn six years prior and gut wrenchingly lose him Six years in the present his fianc e and the now famous Liam Quinn are hired to star in Elissa s theater s latest production of the Taming of the Shrew.Elissa and Liam s connection and attraction is just as strong as it was in the past The author truly delivers with the dialogue and angst as she gets to know him and his costar fianc e who is actually a great character as well.The beginning of the story and the whole middle was spot on and will have readers dying to find out WHY Liam went from I love you to being in the arms of another woman, Angel Tonight, I saw myself in that dress, and it hit me You re getting married You To someone else I swallowed and look at his chest I mean, I knew you were, but I didn t know, you know And now I do and it sucks A reader will be so invested into the whys and I promise you will come up with endless reasons for Liam s treatment of Elissa in the past Every day, I try to ignore my attraction to you Every damn day I tell myself I m over you and can t have these feelings, but it doesn t help Nothing helps The author s reasons for Liam breaking things off with Elissa and the driving force behind these actions didn t fully work for me Also the ending fell flat for me I am a fan of this author and have a feeling that she ll gift of this couple without the distraction of the other two around because as much as I liked the other two characters they kind of took away at times from me fully immersing myself in their hea Still, if you re a fan of the series or if you want to try this one can be a standalone I hope you ll enjoy this author s gift for angsty love stories with steamy sex scenes and witty dialogue ARC provided by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

    From the start, it was clear Elissa and Liam s story was not going to be smooth sailing After six years, Elissa is reunited with the man who broke her heart, but a lot has changed Liam is now a famous actor and he isn t alone Liam and his beautiful fianc are the stars of the Broadway show, Elissa is stage managing, yeah, can you say angst So much angst.I love that the story unfolded through past glimpses weaved into the present I was riveted, anxiously waiting to find out what happened to cause these two to go their separate ways, because every bit of Elissa and Liam s beginning seemed perfect And I felt so much longing, regret and chemistry between them after their reunion I needed answers I ve missed you, Liss It hurts not seeing you for all those years, but this You being right here and me not being able to have you Hurts so much As the production gets underway, Elissa and Liam find themselves unable to stay away from each other, but Angel is still very present And eventually everything is revealed, now this is where I struggled a bit with the story The build up was prefect, the angst and emotion were 100%, but when I finally got answers, I found myself a bit underwhelmed Everything falls together a bit to perfectly and some of the reveals, just seemed a somewhat ridiculous Either way, I devoured the first 70% of this story and while I didn t love the ending, it was still a solid read ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review

    5 My BLiss stars for Liam and Elissa It s unbelievable I adored this book so much Why it seems unbelievable Well, i had some issues with the previous two books and especially with the main heroine, Cassie So, i was a little bit cautious about this one, and i m so happy that Mrs Rayven proved me wrongI loved every single moment in there, even if i was laughing or i was crying or i was mad with the heroes or when i was antsy as hellI loved very much the two main characters and i loved the way that they were together or not But let me take the things from the beginningIn Wicked Heart we had to deal with Elissa Holt, Ethan s sister from the previous two books and Liam Quinn, a very famous and popular actorThose two meet each other for the new theatrical play that Liam would co star with his lovely fianc e and Elissa would be their stage managerThe only problem between them This is not the first time that they are meeting each otherLiam and Elissa had history together A history that goes 6 years before and a heartbroken ending At least having my heart broken by Liam Quinn taught me one thing It s taught me that i never want to feel this way about a man ever again Elissa is anxious and exciting at the same time for meeting Liam again, after all those yearsShe used to be so in love with him is still in love with him and her heart even though the distance and time that passed didn t get the memo that she had to move on from himBut she is a professional and she had to do her job without any distractions But how can she ignore the love of her life to be in another woman s embrace How can she stay away from him when he seems like he wants to do to her the same things that she is wishing for And how can she act on her needs when she can t hate the lovely woman that he has by his side He s the only man who s ever affected me like this, and it s safe to say I hold it against him It s inconvenient and rude Well, Liam made something terrible back then and he left the love of his life behindNow he is very famous and with his fianc e, they are the most loving couple on the planet Seriously, guys They even had their own name Angeliam Ewwwww But when he is seeing Elissa again, something snaps inside of him Will he be able to ignore this attraction for Liss or will he act on it And with what cost I ve missed you, Liss It hurt not seeing you for all those years, but this You being right here and me not being able to have you Hurts so much The book was clearly from Elissa s POV and it was written in the present with some chapters from the past In there, we managed to see how Liam and Elissa had met and how everything played between themI won t hide from you that sometimes, i was feeling devastated from the turn of the eventsSomething was very wrong and it was driving me madLiam s behavior was very strange and it wasn t fitting with what his eyes were saying and that frustated me as hell I ve spent years trying to block out how you look And sound And feel And before this show, I d gotten pretty good at it But now, here you are, in front of me every day, and it blows my mind that a single touch from you still has the power to ruin me And whenever it happens, I forget about the choices I ve made, and the circus my life s become, and I want you Consequences be damned Those two deserved to be together and the situation that they were finding themselves were excruciating painful My heart was aching so much for their behalf Especially for Elissa s sake, since i couldn t understand Liam s attitude half of the timesWhen Liam and Elissa were in the same room God, the sexual tension was unbearableThe air was thick with tension and lust and love And for once again, i was thinking how unfair was for them what they have to get through Before and after I hate this.Love Longing.Attraction.Need.Everything he brings out in me.I m so tired of wanting what I can t have Wanting him I can t do it any But no, don t you think that this book was only full of pain and sadness NO Both Liam and Elissa were funny as hell, alone or together And when Josh was adding in the equation, i just couldn t stop laughingElissa was a little bit of a freak with order and cheese and Liam, of course She was so damn funny and witty She was a good person and she proved it with her attitude toward Angel Liam was her thorn and her eternal dream but he hurt her in the past and he was still hurting her in the presentShe had to stay away from him, but how that is even possible I m trembling with frustration that my heart still claims him as mine even though he s not It s trying to convince me that he still loves me, but how can he After everything he s put me through, he can t This isn t love It s lust And weakness Liam was gorgeous, funny, a little bit smug and he was also witty He was also kind and for an actor, he was very grounded But he had made wrong choicesChoices that was hurting him and the only person that he ever lovedHe couldn t live any with the consequences of his choices He needed to take his life in his own hands He ought it to himself and Elissa But how he can untangle himself from stardome s web Will he stand a chance to get back what he had refused to himself before six years Or is it too late I used to think that if I just waited long enough, fate would bring us back together That our stars would align, or whatever, and you d come crashing back into my life to stay But that didn t happen So now I say, screw it I m done waiting Sometimes, fate is what you make it, and I m making my life with you As i told you, i loved Liss and Liam They were such sweetheartsBut except from those two, there were two persons that i adored almost the sameJosh was Elissa s best friend and he was such a cute and funny guyThe other person that i ended up to love, even though that i wanted to hate was AngelSeriously, guys It was impossible to hate that woman They were both of them amazing and lovely characters.Finally, i would like to say that for once again, made me sick the game of the famous peopleAll this fame can destroy a person and his life for goodIt was so sad to witness it You can give up on a lot things in life and still be happyBut the one thing you re absolutely not allowed to give up on is true love When you find it, you should grab it with both hands and never let it go, because although it might not always be easy or convenient, it s worth it ARC generously provided by St Martin s Griffin publications via NetGalley for the exchange of an honest review

    4.5 stars This book The characters, the conflict, the angst, the dialogue, the writingeverything just worked for me I was instantly drawn into the lives of Elissa Holt and Liam Quinn From the moment Elisse and Liam met, I was invested in their relationship While their attraction was instant, it took a while for them to get together I loved the waiting and tension And when it finallu happened, it was so good So I was guttedGUTTED when circumstances conspired to keep them apart The angst just about killed me especially when they met each other again and Liam looked like he s moved on Unlike in the previous books where the conflict I felt was dragged throughout the book, here, it builds With the attraction still simmering between Liss and Liam, along with Liam s popularity and not to mention his fianc e, the tension built slowly and sure until it reached fever pitch until shit just hit the fan I was expecting it but I was still unprepared by how much it emotionally affected me Leissa Rayven did a phenomenal job in making readers feel invested in these characters I ve always loved Liss in the previous books, and in this book, I fell in love with her character even She was strong and yet vulnerable Confident but self deprecating She s capable and can hold her own Liam, I hated for bit But when reckoning came, he came through And although I didn t 100 percent agree with his decision, I understand why he had to do it And it wasn t just Liam and Liss that were likable and relatable in this book There are other characters that I really ended up rooting for even though they were part of the reason why Liam and Liss were apart Like I said, not only did Ms Rayven built a believable conflict, she also created really unforgettable and relatable characters Overall, this book satisfied my inner angst whore and my need to have a sweet satisfying ending The author did not make it easy for Liss and Liam but it only made the conclusion all the sweet and satisfying Highly recommended An ARC was provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    It s no secret I am not a fan of angst, it makes me a nervous wreck I am also not a fan of second chance romances That didn t stop me from being a HUGE fan of this book Three hundred dollars for the pleasure of your company, beautiful Elissa Seems like a bargain, if you ask me We met Elissa Holt previously, in Bad Romeo she is Ethan s sister I have always liked her, she is fun and quirky I loved how she was outgoing and seemed full of life In Wicked Heart you really get to meet Elissa and see what she is all about You see the serious and vulnerable parts of her I loved seeing her POV throughout the story, especially when the former love of her life re enters her life Liam Quinn is an a list celebrity now, but years ago he was staring in his first play, working with Elissa Liam is now back in her life and there is so much mystery surrounding their past I was so desperate to understand his motives and reasons for his actions Then you see these moments between Elissa and Liam and can t help, but crave To stay away from you Every single time, I ve failed You know that Fighting what I feel for you is exhausting, and I can t do it any I was completely twisted up reading this one I knew how I wanted things to play out but wasn t sure how it could be obtained The direction this story took was perfect I loved the plot and movement of the story I loved how it read so quickly, but also had you completely feeling for the characters.I couldn t put this down if I tried, which is a huge feat since lately I can t stay up to finish a book to save my life Wicked Heart is addictive and engaging and one of the most entertaining books I have read this year This book has been the benchmark for me lately because it truly is a huge deal that I stayed up until 2 00 AM reading Then when I finished I was kicking myself for reading it so quickly Wicked Heart is the kind of book you just need to read in one sitting I needed to know what happened in the past, I needed to know what would happen in the future, I just needed to know everything I absolutely recommend this read if you are looking for a story with angst, heart and steam ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review Teasers created by me with stock images purchased from depositphotos.
