Synopsis via Goodreads: From the internationally best selling author of BAD ROMEO, BROKEN JULIET, and WICKED HEART comes an anthology of sweet and sexy novellas featuring beloved Starcrossed characters such as Ethan and Cassie, Liam and Elissa, and Josh and Angel; as well as the gang from The Grove.

Have Yourself A Sexy Little Christmas: An Ethan and Cassie Novella

Ethan and Cassie’s first Christmas with the Holt family should be nothing but jolly. Sure, Cassie’s a mess trying to impress her future in-laws with the perfect casserole, but when an unexpected blast from Ethan’s past shows up beneath the tree, the season gets a whole lot more serious—and sexy.

The Naughty List: A Liam and Elissa Novella

After being apart for months, Liam and Elissa are making up for lost time on a secluded island, where they think they’re free to explore each other’s bodies in peace. But when it turns out their Christmas sanctuary isn’t as deserted as it first seemed, their Christmas dreams turn into a nightmare.

Happy, Horny New Year: A Josh and Angel Novella

When the gang from the Grove gets together at a lavish New Year’s Eve party, it’s like no time has passed. Except Elissa and Josh are dating Hollywood royalty, Jack and Zoe have been hooking up in secret, Connor’s new girlfriend wants to murder Cassie, and Erika’s mystery man has everyone talking. Before midnight, shocking revelations are made, industry tongues are wagging, and the poor mistletoe is ready to pass out from overuse.

No matter how you’re spending the holidays, BAD ROMEO CHRISTMAS is sure to heat up your festive season this winter.


The Starcrossed gang is back together for one last hurrah and I couldn’t be more excited to read a few more stories about some of my favorite characters! Bad Romeo Christmas is a collection of short stories starring our three Starcrossed couples: Ethan and Cassie, Liam and Elissa, and Josh and Angel. All these short stories take place during the holiday season, and let’s just say the sexy times are hotter than the yule log burning in the fireplace!

Have Yourself A Sexy Little Christmas: Cassie & Ethan

Ethan and Cassie are now engage and still madly in love with each other! These two have been through hell and back can pretty much survive anything thrown their way. I loved the banter between these two and the shenanigans were hilarious. I also really loved seeing the Holt family finally come together and move on from the past and forgive each other. Cassie and Ethan have both come a long way and considering the fact that these two had me at my wit’s end, I’ve grown to love them despite all their flaws.

The Naughty List: Liam & Elissa

Elissa and Liam have been apart for the last three months as Liam is off filming on location and Elissa has been busy with a number of productions. These two have worked hard to keep their relationship from the public eye and now with things wrapping up for the both of them, they hope to spend some quality time together, far, far away where they won’t be easily interrupted. Elissa has always been my favorite female MC throughout the Starcrossed series and seeing her finally get her HEA with the man she has loved for years makes me so happy. THESE TWO TAKE THE CAKE WHEN IT COMES TO WILD AND SEXY TIMES! The chemistry has always been off the charts between these two and I mean, it’s LIAM FUCKING QUINN, like it doesn’t get any better than him.

Happy, Horny New Year: Josh & Angel

Finally we have Josh and Angel, the couple I was most interested to see because after the way things ended for the in Wicked Heart, I was curious to see what they were up to now. First and foremost, I WANT TO MARRY JOSHUA KANE! Who knew nerds could be so hot? Josh and Angel are definitely an odd couple, but they work so well together and are always so supportive of one another. I do wish that we could’ve gotten to see more of these two together, but I’m still happy with how things played out for these two. Whoever said nice guys finish last obviously has never met Joshua Kane!

Bad Romeo Christmas is a special treat for fans of the Starcrossed series and I appreciate Leisa Rayven for giving her readers one last chance to see some of our favorite characters again. I’m going to miss these characters so much, but I’m excited to read some new stories and fall in love with some new characters by Leisa Rayven, just like how I fell in love with the Starcrossed series.

I'm Ari, a local NYC bibliophile and a forever daydreamer. You can usually find me with my nose buried in a book and my head up in the clouds. I am also a coffee addict and a chocolate connoisseur. I fell in love with the romance genre about three years ago and I haven't been able to stop reading about happily-ever-afters, which is ironic because I'm a bit of a cynical romantic in real life, haha. I hope you all enjoy my blog and fangirling with me about all the smutty reads!
