in Reading Order Guide:

<— This new adult book was a “romance angst” super-hit last year, and now… we’ve got TWO more books to enjoy, ’cause they were both JUST RELEASED today! (see ‘em below) :D And I know Lina and many of our fellow readers will be jumping for joy, considering their adamant recommendation of book #1:

Lauren: Very bad things is a very angsty 5 star read for me! I could NOT put it down I felt every single feeling! Whoa I’m still feeling things from it! … Absolutely swooning to the max! I love a book that gives me the “funny feeling” like a sudden whoosh of emotion that makes my stomach do flip flops!

Lisa: OMG this book rocked my freaking socks off!  The writing, the phenom characters, the love storm that was brewing, the chaos, and just overall the amazing story as a whole. I was instantaneously hooked. Those Tate men own my heart!

Lina:  I was sucked in. I broke down. I hid the pain perfectly. And I fell in love with a man. My favorite scene…30% “Go back to your d@%+ table. No f&$cking today, Nora”… Bravo to Ilsa Madden-Mills on this debut and when is Briarcrest Academy #2 coming out? I want more Sebastian!

About book #1:

Born into a life of privilege and secrets, Nora Blakely has everything any nineteen-year-old girl could desire. She’s an accomplished pianist, a Texas beauty queen, and on her way to Princeton after high school. She’s perfect. Or is she?
Leaving behind her million-dollar mansion and Jimmy Choos, she changes the course of her life, becoming a girl hell-bent on pushing the limits with alcohol, drugs, and meaningless sex.

Then through a chance encounter, she meets her soulmate. But he doesn’t want her.

When it comes to girls, twenty-five-year-old Leo Tate has one rule: never fall in love. His gym and his brother are all he cares about…until he meets Nora. He resists the pull of their attraction, hung up on their six year age difference.

As they struggle to stay away from each other, secrets will be revealed, tempers will flare, and hearts will be broken. Welcome to Briarcrest Academy…where sometimes, the best things in life are Very Bad Things.

I have read them both and very highly recommend them. Ilsa has cranked up the angst this time around. Cuba is wicked sexy. Very Wicked Beginnings is the perfect introduction to Very Wicked Things. Please note proceeds for the month of May go to charity. Ilsa Madden-Mills is not just a rock star writer – she’s also generous. Go forth and 1-Click! You’ll be glad you did.

I didn’t love these. The writing just didn’t do it for me. Too choppy and I didn’t feel like the characters were consistent and way too flat.
