RomanceFull Review Posted on 5 8 14Cuba Hudson is famously nicknamed Hollywood by his class mates at Briarcrest Academy His friends all think that his life is perfect They have no clue Cuba s dream is to help people by becoming a doctor he loves football and is well known for his position on the field He s all smiles and a big flirt at school yet it s all a facade The real Cuba lives with guilt, regret and pain and it runs deep NOTE If you ve not read the prequel to this story I highly suggest you do I do not think you should read Very Wicked Things without reading Very Wicked BeginningsEveryone says you re pretty good on the field That no quarterback is safeDoveyA Very Wicked Beginning Cuba is out on the football field when he looks up and spots a girl in a window performing a ballet piece It s the day his life takes a turn in a direction he never expected it to take Cuba finds himself falling for a girl he does not even know He s positive that she does not run in his circle of friends Still, he s sure that he has most likely seen her before yet never acknowledged her presenceCuba was part of the beautiful people I wasn tDoveyDovey Beckham is attending Briarcrest Academy on a scholarship Unlike the other students Dovey does not have wealthy parents she does not live in a big fancy house or have tons of money at her disposal No, Dovey has fought and earned her place as a ballerina at Briarcrest As a matter of fact Dovey has been fighting her whole life just to surviveCuba Hudson, the hottest, richest, most popular guy on campus looked as broken as I feltDoveyAs I hinted at before Cuba s home life is far from perfect It slike a slow deteriorating..crumbling to the ground on which it once stood brick wall Cuba saw something in Dovey that day through the window of the ballet studio and he begins his quest to get her to agree to go out with him She s not really feeling it though and could care less about who he is It takes some coaxing but Dovey finally gives in to him only to have her heart broken.Cuba turns in to king of the assholes and I did not really like him for a minute there I felt for Dovey, I truly did He was a complete douche and it hurts Then Dovey spots him, catches the look on his face and realizes that there isto it then she may have thought Unfortunately that concern she felt towards him only lasts but a split second before she goes back to hating him with a passion all over again But does she really hate Cuba I think not, home girl is ANGRY.And Cuba Well he seems to be in denial.Dovey represents love and hope, something Cuba lacks but in her he sees it clear as day and believes it to be attainableBetween the day we d met and today, we d been irrevocably changed, altered into adults before our timeDovey My Sweet and Sour My Sweet The Porsche, Dovey and Cuba in the front seat No other words necessary My Sour The scenes when Cuba is not being nice to Dovey My ThoughtsI fell hard for these two Both Dovey and Cuba are very realistic characters that make mistakes and react to situations in a way that only a 17 and or an 18 year old would..Thinking you have no choices, no resources and no one to really count on Yeah, that freaking sucks I found it gripping how these two are seemingly oppositeswere Cuba gave up and became numb to his feelings Dovey fought and refused to not feel anything Instead she took what she felt and used it Overall, the story was intense, at times sad, undoubtedly stirring and written very well.My Rating and Why4.5 STARS I loved it The story was emotional and filled with plenty of up s and down s The writing is good Ilsa Madden Mills was not scared to take risks with her characters and I admire that in an author It also makes a sub plot twist 10 timesinteresting when an author takes such risks.My RatingsCharacters LovableWriting Style FavorablePlot Storyline Girl meets rich boy and denies him, he pushes for her to give him a chance only to break her heart because he is hurt and he fears loveSteam Factor Medium Steamy On a scale of 1 10 I say 6.5Entertainment Level From Lo Med Hi I say Medium, I was engrossed in the storyOverall I loved

    Oh my me myLet s see I think we need to wait until I m able to catch my breath Or my heart If you thought Very Bad Things was an emotional roller coaster, think again I think Very Wicked Things takes the icing on the cake for that one lol From the novella we all know I loved Cuba but my second thought as soon as I started VWT was omg he s such an asshole Don t believe me, ask Ilsa lol All jokes aside, I thought Cuba was a huge ass ButYes, there s a but BUT, I couldn t help bu Oh my me myLet s see I think we need to wait until I m able to catch my breath Or my heart If you thought Very Bad Things was an emotional roller coaster, think again I think Very Wicked Things takes the icing on the cake for that one lol From the novella we all know I loved Cuba but my second thought as soon as I started VWT was omg he s such an asshole Don t believe me, ask Ilsa lol All jokes aside, I thought Cuba was a huge ass ButYes, there s a but BUT, I couldn t help but love the guy at the same time We find out early on what kind of, sort of happened I was able to empathize with him My heart still broke for Dovey though I m probably not making any sense Let me start at the beginningBad guys were always the prettiest, but then pretty is an understatement when it came to him So basically, VWT takes place about a year after Very Wicked Beginnings Dovey and Cuba have been broken up and apparently it wasn t pretty At all In fact, he pretty much humiliated her in front of the entire school Um, bastard much So, they ve avoided each other for a whole year A WHOLE YEAR No making eye contact, no accidental awkward waves in the hallways, nada Zilch They don t even exist to each other During the time they were pretending the other didn t exist, they both saw different people WellCuba saw a whole bunch of other people For some reason I always think it s much harder for girls to just turn off their feelings like that As fate would have it, the two idiots I say that with complete love in my heart can t really stay away from each other Yep, even after all this time As fate would also have itOur main girl is in trouble Can she do what she needs to do to save herself and her only family she has What about Cuba What s his secret Well I would tell you but that would be plain mean You need to read the story to figure out the powerful story behind Dovey and Cuba The whole storyline was well thought out and had some surprise moments that had me going, well I didn t see that at all Overall, this was such a great read I loved being back in the world Ilsa has created Her characters are do real and have flaws That makes them believable on so many levels Cuba and Dovey s story is a fresh, emotional read Of course, it s filled with angst and sexual tension galore I think I might wantof them They are great characters and I hope you love their story as much as I didReview copy given by author in exchange for an honest review.

    DNF sort of I skimmed the rest of the book starting at the 66% mark This book just didn t work for me I felt disconnected from the characters once I hit the 40% mark Then the chemistry between the heroine and hero started to fall flat, which made me grow bored with the story.I really hated the fact that the hero was written as a manwhore, which is basically how the first hero in the first book was written I wanted a different hero this time around Also, I had a hard time believing th DNF sort of I skimmed the rest of the book starting at the 66% mark This book just didn t work for me I felt disconnected from the characters once I hit the 40% mark Then the chemistry between the heroine and hero started to fall flat, which made me grow bored with the story.I really hated the fact that the hero was written as a manwhore, which is basically how the first hero in the first book was written I wanted a different hero this time around Also, I had a hard time believing these characters were in high school I know they both had tough lives, and had to grow up fast, but I think this storyline would have fitted better in a college scene Others seem to love this book, so maybe it s just me If you liked the first book, ignore me, and give this book a shot You might love it

    After the tease of Very Wicked Beginnings we finally get the full story to Cuba and Dovey I can honestly say it was nothing like I expected We begin this story about a year after we saw Cuba notice Dovey, the wooing stage but we start off not with a happy couple, but a broken hearted girl Dovey isn t sure what caused Cuba to break things off or not even look her in the eyes She thought she fell for the guy that would be her white knight Her soulmate But in the end, she was cast aside while After the tease of Very Wicked Beginnings we finally get the full story to Cuba and Dovey I can honestly say it was nothing like I expected We begin this story about a year after we saw Cuba notice Dovey, the wooing stage but we start off not with a happy couple, but a broken hearted girl Dovey isn t sure what caused Cuba to break things off or not even look her in the eyes She thought she fell for the guy that would be her white knight Her soulmate But in the end, she was cast aside while he moved on As we get the bits and pieces of what happened during that year, we also progress forward Cuba still not willing to allow himself to go after what he wants but fully able to let her go Dovey s past is revealed through flashbacks, where we clearly get a chance to see what gave her the drive to succeed and why dance means everything to her But when things get complicated, Cuba seems to be there just at all the right times Letting him back in could destroy her but she needs to know the answers to why he hurt her and with those answers we get one heck of a revelation and look into the world of Hollywood A world that isn t as perfect as the rest of Briarcrest Academy thinks it is.Ilsa Madden Mills delivers a solid story with Cuba Dovey and her second full installment of the Briarcrest Academy I am really drawn to this series and I can t quite place my finger on what it is about that that draws me in Usually when I read a book there is something that stands out as my favorite thing, with this particular book I think the overall story was really my favorite thing I love a heroine that isn t weak, especially when her past gives her a free pass to be so Dovey had backbone at all the right moments Although Cuba hurt her deeply, she was still drawn to him and I loved that she couldn t really stop herself from letting him in, even if it was just a little I felt like I need to know what happened for my own closure just as badly as she did.As for Cuba He was a bit prickly and I could see what made him do the things he did, but still needed a bitfrom him It s rare that I end up liking the heroinethan the Hero but I think that is really what happened with Cuba He was damaged but not broken and I think had he been a complete shattered mess, I would have loved him .Overall, a solid read that leaves you anticipating both Sebastian s and Spider s stories that follow this release

Dovey s life quickly spirals out of control with some shocking twists that will leave your mind spinning She needs to do what she needs to do to keep her friends and family safe, and she will stop at nothing until it s done All the while Cuba pushes her away for fear of hurting her I wasnt sure if we would get a HEA because Dovey and Cuba had both been through so much Their story was heartbreaking to read This book was darker than VBT but extremely well written I cried for both Cuba and Dovey, several times The characters were well developed, making me feel as if I was right there with them, experiences their struggles The story was paced perfectly, with some curveballs thrown in that will leave you shocked And of course, book three was set up brilliantly I really hope it s about Sebastian I highly recommend this book I gave it 5 stars and I am anxious to find outabout book 3 And for my fellow VBT lovers, have no fearNora and Leo make a few cameo appearances in Very Wicked Things Well done, Ilsa
