Review: Wicked Heart (Starcrossed #3) by Leisa Rayven

Posted on


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.

My Review

“How long does it take to fall in love? A second? A week? A year? It’s like asking how long it takes to fall asleep. Some people are gone as soon as their head hits the pillow. Others lie awake for hours, and it’s only when their brain stops churning for a while that sleep sneaks in and drags them under. That’s how I visualize falling in love. Some people fall so easily, they seem reckless. They love freely and unashamed.”

“Ask me to give up a limb and I swear, I’ll find a way to do it. But don’t ask me to live without you anymore. I can’t. I’m so goddamn in love with you, it hurts.”

“But the one thing you’re absolutely not allowed to give up on is true love. When you find it, you should grab it with both hands and never let go, because although it might not always be easy or convenient, it’s worth it. I can tell you that much for sure.”

Wow! Just wow!! Wicked Heart, you have definitely taken my heart and ran away with it. I didn’t know what to expect when I picked up this book. I mean, Leisa Rayven set the bar pretty high with Cassie and Ethan’s story. I didn’t know if I could love a couple more than those two. And then I read the first page and was like Ethan and Cassie who???!! From the moment I picked up this book, I was sucked in. I was utterly captivated by Elissa and Liam’s story. You see Liam is the only man that Elissa has ever loved, but their relationship ended almost faster than it began. It will be six long years before these two are reunited. And when they are finally reunited….Watch out!! Elissa tries and I mean tries her hardest to keep things professional, but the more Liam and Elissa are around each other, the harder it is to fight the intense connection these two share. However the road to HEA for these two won’t be an easy one. There are truths that need to be told and obstacles to overcome. If they two of them can move on from the past, they may just end up with the life they’ve always wanted……

Wicked Heart has totally blown me away. Told from dual points of view, this story gave me everything I could ask for and more. Alpha male: Check. Intense Connection: Check. Heartbreak and Misunderstandings: Check. Angst: Check Check. As you can tell, it checked off all my little boxes. Liam and Elissa’s story gave me so many feels. The angst and heartbreak between the two of them was so palpable, it took my emotions for one heck of a ride. My heart ached so much for these two. I wanted to reach through my kindle and shake the two of them. I wanted to yell at them that they belonged together. But, in reality, all I could do is just sit back, read and enjoy the ride. And boy, what a ride it was.

I devoured Wicked Heart in just one sitting. I couldn’t put it down. Liam and Elissa’s story demanded to be told and I couldn’t read the pages fast enough. I loved everything about this story. The story is well-written, fun and entertaining. The characters; you just couldn’t help fall in love with them. The side characters were amazing as well. I loved the romance, and the angst and the drama. I just couldn’t get enough of it. Wicked Heart was one of my most anticipated reads of the year and boy did it deliver.
