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.






Jodie's review

3.5 stars

“You met me right?” I’m Ethan. Late-night drunk –dailer. Complusive ass-groper.  Shameless boob-ogler.  Forever-erect-in-your-your-presence serial masturbator.”

Well before I begin I am going to figure  you have met Ethan.  If not go rectify that immediately!!   At the end of Bad Romeo, we were left saying NOOOOOOO!!! Thankfully this book picks up right where I was screaming. Ethan is standing there letting it all out and Cassie was keeping herself guarded. Basically in this book she is Ethan.

“On a scale of one to wanting to-to-kick-me-the-balls, how much do you hate me for dumping you? Be honest.”

Okay so I was a little bitter with Ethan and maybe I had trust issue with the author.  But I was ready for the roller coaster that is this couple.   What I was shocked with in this book was how much Ethan has changed he was so open and yet he still had that thing about him I loved in book 1.  He so serious in this book and so willing to show Cassie his heart.  I don’t know some how Ethan became…

Ethan. Bastard Ethan.  Beautiful Ethan.  My Ethan.  Forever Mine
I LOVE HIM!! This book is told in Cassie’s POV and we jump once again from present to past.  But we do get some of Ethan’s POV so it made it interesting.  I loved the journal entries, I loved knowing what Ethan was thinking.  I loved watching Cass come to terms with things and face the past.  Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet together are unlike any love story I have read, it is one that completely moves you and gives you such a deep connection with the characters.  I loved that even with all the intensity it still gave me moments where I was laughing out loud and it also had the ability to have me wanting to flip to the end and find out what was going to happen because I just needed to know and FYI I didn’t cheat.

This book left me with a complete sense of complete, I was happy and everything I wanted answers to I had.

“There is beauty born from tragedy.  Look at these precious fault line of experience.”

author bio




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, 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.)
