Bad Romeo ~Review

“Sometimes people put up walls, not only to keep people out, but also to see who cares enough to tear them down. Understand?” 

When Cassie Taylor met Ethan Holt at acting school, sparks flew. She was the good girl actress. He was the bad boy about campus. But one fated casting choice for Romeo and Juliet changed it all. Like the characters they were playing, Cassie and Ethan's romance seemed destined. Until he broke her heart and betrayed her trust. Now the A-list heartthrob is back in her life and turning her world around. One touch at a time.

Cast as romantic leads once again, they're forced to confront raw memories of the heartbreaking lows and pulse-pounding highs of their secret college affair. But they'll also discover that people who rub each other the wrong way often make the best sparks

Bad Romeo..... where do I begin with this one? I have mixed feelings. It took me sooooooo long to get through this one and the sequel, Broken Juliet. I don't know why I had such a hard time reading this, but it really did take me for forever. 

I like Ethan and Cassie as characters. It was interesting the way Leisa Rayven formatted the story. She had the chapters switching between past and present time, which was a really cool concept. There was also a ton of drama..... no not that dram... well yes that drama, but I mean theater. 

I really like theater, so I was so excited for this story. The theatric did not disappoint and over all I did enjoy this story. There were times where the excitement lulled and, I think that's where I got lost at times. It was very much me just wishing the characters would get over their crap and suck it up. 

Eventually that did happen and things got better, but it was still slow. Ethan was so broken and damaged that we spent most of the story reading about how to fix him..... or rather, how not to fix him. While I like broken characters and feel like they can bring a lot to a plot, Ethan was too much at times. 

Though I'm leaning more towards liking this story.... it was really just ehh to me. It had it's ups, but it had it's downs too... maybe even more downs than ups.
