MY BRAKES RECENTLY GAVE OUT ON ME WHILE DRIVING

My brakes recently gave out on me while driving. I took it home and noticed a big puddle of brake fluid on and around my rear drivers side tire. After taking it apart I found that the boot on the wheel cylinder was torn. After putting everything back together and replacing the wheel cylinder I still do not have proper brake pressure when I start the engine and I am able to put the brake all the way down with ease. I bled the brakes but it was my first time doing it and I am not sure if I just did not do it properly. Could you let me know if this is the main possibility or could it be something else. Thank you,
Dustin
