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 fianc
é 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 lead to 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.

Six years ago 19 year-old Elissa was in love with Liam.
But he hurt her with his actions ... but still she never forgot him. No other guy ever lived up to him.
Now, a famous Broadway stage manager, she'll meet him again.
As a huge Hollywood star, he'll be the star of the new Shakespeare play she's working on. Also with him - his beautiful fiancée Angel.
But of course Elissa will be able to survive seeing him again, right?
She won't melt in a puddle of lust at his feet??

Liam Quinn ... he makes me swoon like it's his damn job.

And what's with those looks he constantly gives her? And what about his fiancée Angel??? She doesn't seem to get the same heated looks from Liam???
And why does Angel have to be so damn nice???
What will happen with Elissa & Liam???
Will there be a HEA??
Will everybody survive the book?

I'm not telling you that of course ☺

I LOVED the Bad Romeo/Broken Juliet books with Elissa's brother...and now it's her turn.
And it was just adorable!!!!
What's not to love about a HOT-AS-HELL Hollywood superstar?!?!

Liam Quinn

The story was soooo adorable!
So frustrating - because you want Elissa & Liam to finally be together again, but he's not free... But we're still hoping all through the book...
And the story was also very moving and sad and sooo very sexy...

 I loved every moment of WICKED HEART!
I think with a good conversation early on, a lot of heart-break could've been prevented, but pfff, there has to be a bit drama in our books!
And Liam is just too amazing to be mad at ☺
He's such a good guy all through the book, he just wants what's best for Liss... ugh - so adorable!
Perfect Romance!!!

We even got to hear and see Ethan for a few brief moments!!!!☺☺☺

WICKED HEART was such a beautifully adorable & sexy & funny second-chance romance! Run to your nearest amazon for some Liam Quinn - you won't be disappointed!!!

Ethan who?  Holt what?

Move over Ethan Holt, there is a new acting hottie here to take your place.

I never thought that anyone could take Ethan's place (even though I despised him in Bad Romeo, I came to love him in Broken Juliet) but then Liam Quinn entered my world, and there was no looking back.

Elissa Holt (Ethan's sister, remember her) had one night with Liam Quinn,but her heart was his from that night one.  

6 years down the track, their world's collide again, and as much as she tries, her heart just can't take it.  Oh my goodness, my heart ached along with Elissa, as over and over again Liam shows that he still wants her... but he is not free.

Boy, were there tears after tears after tears as I read Wicked Heart.  I just wanted Liss to be able to move on, or for Liam and Liss to be together.  So much could have been avoided with a conversation or two, but I could understand why things were the way they were.

Doesn't mean I had to like them though!

There is drama, there is angst, there is so much that I want to say about this book but I just can't without spoiling things.  I want to just scream to the world how wonderful Wicked Heart is, shout from the rooftops that everyone should stop what they are doing and read it - right now!

Wicked Heart is a beautiful, tender, sweet and adorable second chance romance, and I wish I could read it again for the first time - over and over again.  To me it was just one of those perfect romances.

Please give us more Ms Rayven - I NEED MORE!


and if you haven't read BAD ROMEO & BROKEN JULIET...
DO IT NOW!!!! (Preferable before reading Elissa's book!!)

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

Stalking Leisa:

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.
These days, playwriting has given way to fiction writing, and Leisa’s debut novel, BAD ROMEO, was published through Macmillan New York in December 2014. The sequel, BROKEN JULIET was released in April 2015, and the final book in Leisa’s Starcrossed series, WICKED HEART, will hit bookstores and kindles on May 3rd, 2016.
The Starcrossed series has gained hordes of passionate fans all over the world, and the books have now been translated into eight foreign languages. Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet have also featured on international best seller lists in Brazil and Germany.
Leisa Rayven 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.)
