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

Very Twisted Things (Briarcrest Academy, #3)ebook borrowed via Kindle Unlimited.

Release Date: March 1st 2015


A sassy violinist who lives next door. 
An obsessed rock star who watches her through binoculars. 
And one night when she bares it all. 
Life will never be the same in Tinseltown.

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.

This book is a standalone even though it's part of a series. Everything you need to know is in this book. Genre: 18+ Hot New Adult Romance.

My Opinion

This was an all right read. It kept me entertained and was fast-paced, but I didn't connect with it as much as I thought I would.

The start hooked me and the book did hold my interest the whole way through. I liked Sebastian's flirty personality and I think I liked Violet. There was a slight spark between them, but at times their actions were childish, which is what's lowered my rating. Sebastian at times was a jerk and Violet reactions didn't give a solid enough personality for me. She wasn't strong or weak and the flipping between the two felt a bit unrealistic as there wasn't a consistent growth.

Moreover, I do think more could have been done with the characters' back stories. I felt the author only scratched the surface with the emotions and I wanted more.

Overall though this was a quick, easy read. It was mostly enjoyable an the writing was good but I'm not convinced to follow the series.
