Book Review: Very Twisted Things (Briarcrest Academy #3) by Ilsa Madden-Mills

I don't know about everyone else but I have been waiting for Sebastian's story from the moment he was introduced to us in Very Bad Things. I loved his cockiness and humor and was looking forward to finally getting his story. One thing I know I am always going to get with Ilsa's stories is emotion. Pure, raw emotion and yeah this book sure delivered that. From the heart wrenching prologue to Sebastian and Violet dancing around their feelings, my heart was 100% involved.

For as much as I love Sebastian, I also wanted to punch him for his stupid boy mistakes. At times I expected better of him but I held onto hope that he would eventually figure it out. Violet was absolutely awesome in all her junk food eating, potty mouthed glory. She is damaged for sure, but stronger then even she realizes. I understood why she hid away in her mansion, hell I would have done the same thing. But what was beautiful to me was watching her ever so slowly come out of her shell. She may still have a long way to go, but the start of it was huge.

As is customary when reading this author, I cried (a lot) and laughed and I was completely swept away by the characters and the emotions seeping out of them. It is like they flow directly from the pages into my skin and I don't want to let them go when it is done. This series continues to be a must-read for me and I hope we have more from this author soon.

Favorite Quotes

"You're the one I want, V. I want to take you to the fucking stars with my mouth. I want to make you come so hard you can't even think of me without wanting my hands on you."

"Take all your deep breaths with me, V."

Her darkness had called to me, her music had enthralled me, but it was her soul that was mine.

Title: Very Twisted Things
Author: Ilsa Madden-Mills
Series: Briarcrest Academy #3
Genre: New Adult, Contemporary Romance
Vital Rejects front guy Sebastian Tate never imagined his YouTube music video would go viral, sky-rocketing him to acting success in Hollywood. Okay, maybe he did. After all, he’s a cocky dude who knows he’s hot-as-hell, and it was only a matter of time before his stars aligned.

But life in Tinseltown is never what it seems.

After being cheated on by his ex-lover, his only rule to falling in love is simple: Keep Calm and Don’t Do It. So, spying on his mysterious new neighbor with binoculars seems innocent enough, but quickly escalates into an erotic game between two very unlikely people.

Twenty-year-old Violet St. Lyons is a world-renowned violinist who's lost her mojo on stage. She hides away in a Hollywood mansion, trying to find her way through her twisted past in order to make her future.

He’s the life of the party with girls chasing him down for his autograph. She’s the introvert with a potty mouth who doesn’t even know who he is.

When they meet, stars collide, sparks fly, and clothes come off. Yet, giving his heart to a girl isn’t Sebastian’s plan; falling for a guy who craves attention isn’t Violet’s.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy—Hollywood style—where sometimes the best things in life are VERY TWISTED THINGS.
