Synopsis: How do you fix a love that’s been broken beyond repair?

For years, Cassie Taylor tried to forget about Ethan Holt. He was the one great love of her life, and when he failed to return her love, a part of her died forever. Or so she thought. Now she and Ethan are sharing a Broadway stage, and he’s determined to win her back. Claiming to be a changed man, he’s finally able to say all the things she needed to hear years ago, but can she believe him? What makes this time different from all his other broken promises?

Ethan knows he can’t change their tumultuous past, but if he’s going to have any chance of being with the woman he loves, he’ll need to convince Cassie that her future belongs with him.

Review: I bought the first two books in this series as I saw them on BookOutlet and the covers looked pretty cool. I also saw on YouTube that someone had hauled them recently. I was a little weary at first when I saw that this took part in a drama school. I don’t know what it is but that fact or like musical theatre in books always drives me up the wall because the people always sound so pretentious. But I have to say I like how it was executed. I feel like Bad Romeo and Broken Juliet could have been just one book. The second book was very repetitive. Besides that, I found it to be very addicting to continue reading and I wish there was more.

The ending though… is what I think happen, happen? Because that seemed like it was thrown in there out of nowhere and is way too soon if these two are as damaged as they seem.

Characters: The tension between Ethan and Cassie was probably what got me through this book. The insecurity between the two really got on my nerves. Cassie’s roommate… Ruby? Was probably the best character, in my opinion.

The Plot: As I said above. It’s very, very repetitive of the first book. it definitely could’ve been one book. I can’t tell if this felt realistic or not as well.

As I wrote my review I began to realize that this novel wasn’t as good as I once thought it was. Therefore, I am turning my rating of 4 stars to 3 stars.
