From Publishers Weekly

Oct 27, 2014 – Rayven's debut adult contemporary romance shows some skill with prose, but gets lost in its own tangled plot. Cassie Taylor, a young actress making her debut on Broadway, learns that her emotionally constipated ex, Ethan Holt, has been cast as her leading man. Their torrid college affair began when they played Romeo and Juliet together, and Cassie doesn't want to give Ethan another chance to break her heart. But Ethan is determined to show Cassie that he's changed, and that onstage chemistry can lead to offstage happiness. As their relationship in the present progresses, a separate thread portrays the painful self-destruction of their previous connection. Rayven creates a plausible snapshot of two overdramatic, psychologically damaged people unable to get over one another or to make their relationship work, but both Cassie and Ethan are so wounded, vicious, and unpleasant that the theoretically happy ending is completely unbelievable and undesirable.

Customer Reviews

Loved it!

What i loved about this book... EVERYTHING. Leisa Rayven weaves you from the past to present in a flawless fashion. Two former lovers meet again, but it's in the past where their story lies and what a story. Wow! One filled with humor, a delicious and abundant amount of sexual tension, and heart-tugging angst. I loved Cassie. She was a young woman I could really relate too. The story she told with her raw and revealing internal dialogue made the book a five star winner for me. Can't wait for the follow-up of Sad Juliet.
