WICKED HEART - Leisa Rayven
Starcrossed , Book 3
New York - Present Day
Elissa is excited to stage manage for one of her favorite directors. But she definitely wouldn't have taken the job if she'd known who the leading man was going to be . . . Liam Quinn. Most people would never give up the chance to work with one of Hollywood's biggest stars, but Elissa and Liam have a past. As much as Elissa claims to be over it, her heart has never really healed. And now she has to pretend that everything is fine while she works on the show with not just Liam, but his beautiful movie-star fiancée as well.
Elissa didn't expect for Liam to be so nice to her, or that he wanted to be friends. She can avoid him at the theatre during rehearsals, but Liam needs her help running lines . . . alone, in his apartment. It was hard enough to resist him at work, after hours is even worse. Liam's fiancée is a wonderful person whom Elissa could see herself being friends with, so the last thing she wants to do is hurt her feelings by falling back in love with Liam. But Liam has secrets that could change everything, and Elissa can't help how she feels for him.
This book is an emotional roller coaster. WICKED HEART makes you run the gamut from delighted to depressed, and from heartbroken to happy. The first two books in the series were an entertaining read, but Elissa and Liam's story blows the previous books out of the water. If you like your happy ever after with some bumps along the way, look no further than WICKED HEART.
WICKED HEART is the third book in the Starcrossed series, but can be read as a standalone. Book one, BAD ROMEO (DEC 2014) and book two, BROKEN JULIET (APR 2015) feature Cassie and Ethan, Elissa's brother. There is no news about another book in the series as of the writing of this review.
