Wicked Heart is a beautiful and passionate story that will linger with you for many days. This book is the third installment in the Starcrossed series by Leisa Rayven and can be read as a standalone. Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet have been on my TBR list for a long time! I'm so happy that I got the chance to discover a new author. I fell in love with her writing style and characters. This is a series that you need on your TBR list. You will not be disappointed!
Wicked Heart is a second chance at love romance novel that will melt your heart! Elissa and Liam's love story is filled with many intense, emotional and memorable moments.

What she never expected was for Liam to disappear completely from her life. Fast forward six years ... Elissa still thinks about Liam. When she gets the news that she will be reunited with Liam on a Broadway stage, Elissa starts to panic. Her feelings are still strong for him, but she knows she needs to stay away.

Old feelings come back and their chemistry is stronger than ever. Will they listen to their hearts and give love a second chance?
I really enjoyed my reading escape. Elissa and Liam are two incredible characters. Elissa was introduced in the previous books of this series and I loved getting to know her more in Wicked Heart. She's such a wonderful, kind, confident and passionate heroine. Liam is a sweet hero that will melt your heart and steal your breath away! Be ready for a major swoon fest! The chemistry between Elissa and Liam was intense. You could feel the sexual tension between them when they were in the same room. Giving love a second chance is never easy. Elissa and Liam had many obstacles to overcome to be able to love each other again. This love story was awesome! I highly recommend the entire Starcrossed series!
I give, Wicked Heart, by Leisa Rayven, 4.5 passionate, page-turning, fantastic, captivating stars!
About the Author:
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.)
