BOOK REVIEW: Wicked Heart (Starcrossed #3) by Leisa Rayven


Release Date: May 26, 2016


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.

Talk about falling in love!!! Leisa Rayven’s Wicked Heart effortlessly draws that feeling out of you. At the end of this book, I was literally clutching my Kindle against my chest with delightful sigh, and a love haze filled mind. I adored this author’s debut novel, Bad Romeo, but Wicked Heart did way more wicked things to my heart. A standalone sequel to the first 2 books in her amazing Starcrossed series, Elisse and Liam’s story will leave you bewitched.

I absolutely LOVED the way Elissa and Liam’s love story played out. Everything fell into place at just the right time. Each scene, each plot twist… It all had a purpose and because it was done right, the impact reverberated that much more. It was like the author knew at exactly which points in the book it would be when her readers hearts would give out. She knew just when to pull back to give reprieve and when to thrust you back into it when things were beginning to feel too easy. I felt like she was writing each page based on my reactions. As a reader, it doesn’t get any better than that. I mean, a book tailored to your satisfaction? Well, damn… Isn’t that what all authors work to accomplish? Let me tell you, Leisa Rayven, you did just that with Wicked Heart!!!

An independent, self sufficient, blonde bombshell with an uncommon talent for backstage theater. I FLOVED Elissa! Though there were a few times that I had wished for her to have played hardball with Liam a bit more, I also couldn’t fault her because… Well… Liam Quinn. Yep, this guy– whoa mama. He causes women of all ages to squee and swoon with delight. I found myself fanning my face with my hand too many times to count. An actor with a heart of gold, a body worth drooling over, a face that could make you cry luring millions of marriage proposals from strangers but begging and needing it from only one person. The love affair between Elissa and Liam come with tons of complications and baggage but behind it all, their love is so utterly beautiful. I felt the fire that burned between them and savored every minute of it.

Wicked Heart by Leisa Rayven is charming and though it is filled with both LOL and swoon-worthy moments, there are also quite a bit of times where you’ll find yourself feeling so much of the emotions these two battle against. A book that took me by the hand, never quite letting go even hours after. An author who knows exactly what she’s doing, crafting stories to make a hopeless romantic’s dream come true. Leisa Rayven should be on everyone’s “go to author” author list as she has since become on mine.
