SQUEE!!!! This was the perfect conclusion to the story that began in Bad Romeo, which is one of my top favorites. I 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 delic

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.

This series has been a huge win for me… HUGE! I know it’s one that has mixed reviews and ratings. I have friends that don’t love it and other friends that adore it and I’m so happy I fell in the later category. Ethan Holt… I thought he was amazing in Bad Romeo, but I really hadn’t seen anything yet. Full of love, second chances, intensity, angst and passion… It was perfection for this reader!

One reason I love this series so much is that above all the angst and stress, it is full of t

Für mich nur minimal schwächer als Band 1. Ich finde es leider immer etwas viel wenn man eine Liebesgeschichte auf zwei oder noch mehr Bände ausdehnt, da sich dann meistens einfach Handlungsstränge wiederholen. Das war hier allerdings gar nicht so extrem, auch wenn es im Prinzip um die selbe Thematik und Problematik wie in ersten Band geht.
Den Schreibstil fand ich nach wie vor klasse. Ich konnte auch weiterhin mit unseren beiden Protagonisten mitfühlen.

"Despite all the things I would have changed about our journey, I’d never want a different destination. It’s always been you."

My love for this book cannot be described in words! Broken Juliet is an excellent continuation of Bad Romeo and a perfect conclusion for Ethan and Cassie's love story.

After their devastating relationship mistakes in the past, Cassie makes the greatest decision of a lifetime-- to either accept Ethan back or deny their chance of forever.

The first 30% of this book was frustrating as hell. Back and forth. I felt like I was stuck in the spin cycle. Everything started to feel little redundant, it was like reading the same thing over and over.

Broken Juliet begins where Bad Romeo leaves off, which is pretty perfect because I can’t imagine not knowing every moment between Cassie and Ethan.



I actually loved Broken Juliet so much more than Bad Romeo and I loved it, too. Ethan has broke Cassie’s heart twice and is back again, wanting another chance. It seems the roles have reversed. Ethan is vulnerable now and willing to do anything to prove he is serious about Cassie. Now Cassie is harder, more suspicious and less trusting.

"You can love something without being passionate about it. Conversely, you can be passionate about things you don't love. It's when the two converge that real magic happens."

Ethan Holt used to be a train wreck in drama school. An avalanche that emotionally destroyed Cassie and left her completely heartbroken. Now 3 years later, Ethan is back, claiming he is finally ready for a commitment. But even though connection like Cassie and Ethan have doesn't come along more than a once in a life time,

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

Note: This is the follow up book to Bad Romeo.

Continuing where the first book left off, we get to see the end of Cassie and Ethan's relationship in the past and the continuation of it in the present. Ethan has sorted through all of his past issues and is hoping Cassie will confront her current ones.

I loved that we finally got to see the big reason behind the past breakup and it was easier to understand why Cassie has so many reservations about getting involved with Ethan again. He b

I was right there with Cassie in taking my time to believe Ethan had changed. Their experiences in the past really shaped who she became. Some of it positive, some of it not. I liked Cassie even when she was not at her best. Ethan does eventually win me over and let me tell you the change in him is staggering. I was impressed by his patience and at that point he really needed it with Cassie: nothing that he didn't bring upon himself by having hurt her and nothing overtly cruel, thank goodness. T ...more

Bad Romeo was a 5 star read for me. I loved the dynamic of Ethan and Cassie and was happy to read a second book about this couple. Unfortunately the conclusion of their story did not reach the same level of enjoyment for me and I feel that, for my reading tastes, Bad Romeo with the addition of an epilogue would have worked better as a standalone.

The story is once again told in the first person narrative from the sole perspective of the heroine and toggles back and forth between the past and pre

This is the second installment of the series in which I had mixed feeling.. I wasn’t sure second chances could be given considering the amount of heartache that one has to endure, but I was wrong. As cliche as this might sound, love can forgive all, and conquer all.

Bad Romeo ended in cliffhanger, and we got a glimpse of a broken Cassie, left after finally fulfilling her wish of becoming Ethan's lover.
As I said before, I consider Ethan one of the most complex and complicated hero that I've read a

I just can't. Same as book one so far, past Ethan is constantly pulling away from Cassie whilst she desperately pursues him. Present Cassie pulling away from Ethan who is telling her he loves her and wants her back.

Not for me, unfortunately.

OH.MY.GOD. Ethan Holt. I’m sooo -deeply, irrevocably, madly- in love with you! I loved “Bad Romeo” but this book is even better than the 1st one. It was perfect because Ethan was perfectly imperfect! :)

But i have to admit that the second book was much better from the first...

As the pages were passing i start to feel more relaxed, until the moment that Cassie started to irritate me for once again...

I'm sorry, but i can't find a connection with this woman...
I know that Ethan hurt her not once but twice and that left her broken but still i'm not fan of her...

The follow on from the incredible Bad Romeo, this book was my most anticipated release for this year. I have been desperate for it ever since Bad Romeo left me hanging with that nasty cliffhanger, and dying for more. But I have also been really nervous about it.

Broken Juliet is the second and final book in the Starcrossed series. This series isn't for everyone. The relationship between Ethan and Cassie is toxic, passionate, happy, sad, broken, and beautiful. The journey is full of regrets, mistakes, and miscommunications.

Here is what I think and feel about BAD ROMEO & BROKEN JULIET, the 2 books in Star-crossed series...

What I liked about it:

1. There is a bit of everything in it: Love, passion, lust, angst, humor, tragedy, regret, denial, hope, survival etc...

2. The characters are well-developed.

3. Their love feels real, all the feelings pass to the reader like real.

4. The writing is good. Chapters of past and present follow one another in a complementary way. While the past gives us insight about how Ethan

I'm so happy at this moment! I'm terribly and irrevocably romantic at heart and this story touched every little sappy chord i carry. I know many found it slow but i just savored all the built up to such high extend, i ended up delirious.


This story has a certain quality in it that frankly i can't really put my finger on. It enthralls me still even if this installment was somewhat more timid than the first one. Maybe it's the writing, maybe it's the plot or the characters, i don't know for sure.

A heart wrenching, addictive, tumultuous finale that packs all the feels.

Leisa Rayven delivers a gut-wrenching finale to this angst-ridden tale of two star-crossed lovers. I had anxiously awaited this book, feeling the vigorous, impassioned push and pull between our two protagonists, Cassie and Ethan. I was addicted. Obsessed. I needed to see how the curtain would fall on their story. Whereas Bad Romeo was all about the angst between them, Broken Juliet was all about the emotions that raged insi

I didn’t think I could love this one as much as I loved Bad Romeo, but Leisa Rayven proved me wrong.

The story picks up where Bad Romeo left off, and switches from past to present, where we get to see more of the past rocky relationship of Cassie and Ethan, and how they are now trying to fix what once was.

"Las segundas partes nunca fueron buenas"... Este libro es un claro ejemplo.

Resumen del libro: Sexo de reconciliación, sexo de despedida, sexo de dependencia, etc. etc. etc.

No se por donde empezar primero, si porque Cassie es de las protagonistas más desesperantes, más tontas, más ilusas que he leído, por ella fue que muchas veces quise dejar el libro.

Ethan nunca logre entender cual era la razón de su "problema" y porque muchas veces actuaba como un imbécil machista y celoso enfermo.
