Liam Quinn is talented, gorgeous, and one of the biggest movie stars in the world.
He's also the only man Elissa Holt has ever truly loved.
After being out of her life for six years, he and his gorgeous fiancé are set to star in the new Broadway show Elissa is stage managing. The only trouble is, when late night rehearsals bring Elissa and Liam together, the line between what is and what could have been gets blurred, and one moment of weakness will lead to a scandal that echoes around the world.
Elissa knows that falling for Liam again would be a tragedy in the making, but as any good romantic will tell you, love doesn’t always follow the script.
Broadway, Hollywood, and a second a chance at romance. I’m a proud member of the Theatre Geek Society, so normally I’d be all over this story, but (you knew there was a but coming) there was one problem. Wicket Heart is the third book in the Starcrossed series. I already read the first book, Bad Romeo. You know how in some book reviews the reviewer says they didn’t love it, didn’t hate it? Well, suffice it to say that I pretty much hated Bad Romeo. I finished it, but then decided to wash my hands of the follow-up. When I heard there was a third book, I really didn’t give it a second thought. Some friends convinced me to give it a try, though, and you know what? It’s awesome.
To start with, this is a standalone that doesn’t center around the couple from the previous books. Since they were the main source of my dislike, that was a bonus. The story is still set in a theatre environment, but other than that it’s completely different.
Alissa and Liam fall for each other hard and fast, and I fell for their love story just as quickly. Instant bonding between two people tends to make me roll my eyes, but I liked the flirtations and delayed gratification despite their intense attraction.
Wicked Heart includes plenty of triumphs, heartbreak, conniving, sacrifices, swooning, and passion. Maybe I’m just a drama queen, but I ate it up. Some aspects were a bit predictable and others surprisingly not so much. Leisa Rayven redeemed herself in my eyes, and I was quite pleased with this entertaining romance.
I listened to the audiobook and, as usual, Andi Arndt doesn’t disappoint. Her narration is unquestionably excellent.
