But let’s talk story. Back in the day, Cassie, the good girl acting student, and Ethan, the bad boy on campus, used to go out.
Sadly, Ethan was a douche and it didn’t last. Which brings us to the present day, three years later, where both Cassie and Ethan are making names for themselves on Broadway. And, you guessed it, they’re lined up to play star-crossed lovers, just like when they were cast as Romeo & Juliet years ago, bringing up far too many inconvenient feelings for the both of them.
Just imagine it, coming face to face with your first love and having to deliver words of adoration to the handsome face you’ve long dreamed of punching. The angst and tension between these two is immediate and awesome as all of their combined emotional baggage spills forth. Team that with a dynamic modern voice and you’ve got a book that’ll hold you enraptured to the very end.
Read it. You won’t regret it.

The Starcrossed series : Book 1
by Leisa Rayven
Cassie Taylor was just another good girl acting student. Ethan Holt was the bad boy on campus. Then one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing onstage, Cassie and Ethan’s epic romance seemed destined. Until it ended in tragedy when he shattered her heart.
Now they’ve made it to Broadway where they’re reunited as romantic leads once again – and their passionate scenes force them to confront the heartbreaking lows and pulse-pounding highs of their intense college affair. For Ethan, losing Cassie was h is biggest regret-and he’s determined to redeem himself. But for Cassie, even though Ethan was her first and only great love, he hurt her too much to ever be trusted again. The trouble is, when it comes to love, sometimes it’s the things that aren’t good for us that are the most irresistible.
Don’t miss the intoxicating romance beloved by more than two million fans online.
