For the record, you CAN read this book as a stand alone - you will not be lost for not having read Very Bad Things or Very Wicked Things. That being said, you should read both of those books. ;)
The prologue of Very Twisted Things is one of the saddest and scariest things I've ever read. It completely drew me into Violet's head and compelled me to know how anyone could survive what she experienced.
Violet is a woman after my own heart. She's part fragile dove, part fierce lioness. She's lost her entire world, become somewhat of a recluse and is scared of so much life has offer her. Yet, when an absolutely gorgeous man moves in next door and starts spying on her with binoculars, she's all to willing to brave giving him his own private show. Even if that show ends with her flipping him the bird.
Sebastian Tate came to L.A. for one thing and one thing only. Fame. He'll do whatever it takes to be successful and not let his brothers sacrifices go to waist. Love only gets in the way and he's been burned by it before. He's not about to let it hold him up again. Yet, something about his quiet neighbor won't let him rest until she's part of his life.
And boy...when Sebastian sets his mind to something...damn. That boy is is hot!
Trust is what these two both struggle with. Violet struggles to believe she can trust someone with her secrets and they won't just disappear, while Sebastian has to learn to trust that if he gives someone his heart they won't shatter it.
Both are cautious, both are drawn to one another like nothing before, both can be the ruin of each other or everything they never knew they wanted.
Madden-Mills has shown me with Very Twisted Things that she can write a story with much less of the drama she threw at previous characters and still have it hit its mark. You still feel the stress of life, the pain of heartache, the joy of new love. It's a more stripped down story, yet still dramatic enough to pull at all your emotions.
Like the previous titles, I find myself absolutely, wholeheartedly, forever in love with the characters Madden-Mills delivers.
"I'm your king, will you be my queen tonight?"
Sebastian Tate. I've been waiting for his book since VBT. He's the charming younger brother of Leo Tate. And that's all that you should care about; he's a Tate! Very Twisted Things didn't disappoint, in fact I think the books keep getting better and better. Upon the opening scene I knew this story was going to be emotional but I also knew that there'd be some light at the end of the tunnel.
"He was trouble with a capital T and hott with two t's."
Violet lost her family due to a terrible tragedy while they were on their way to a family vacation. The lone survivor was Violet; who couldn't help but wonder why she wasn't lucky enough to die right a long with her family. A prodigal violinist and heiress, she's all alone. Those things don't matter anymore because she's broken. Keeping everyone at arms length until a beautiful blond boy moves in next door to her and shows her what it's like to live again.
"Violin Girl was music with skin. She was real and dark and twisted and I wanted to eat her up."
Sebastian Tate is on his way to MAJOR stardom. In order to land the movie role that will get him there, he must "date" a Hollywood starlet that will show he isn't as wild as they think he is. But that can be hard when a distractingly beautiful girl who plays the violin, is well... Distracting. Who is she? There's only one way to find out!
"Crazy, right? You called me a wiener, and I'm still falling all over you."
Being friends with V is harder than it needs to be. Not only is he not allowed to date her( his job depends on it) he wants to bone her every chance he can get! Heh. Yes, there are some seriously HOT scenes. There's only so much these two can take before they combust. I don't blame V in the slightest though. It's a Tate brother after all.
"Favorite color?" I asked
"Red and lacy."
My robe was red... and lacy.
It was nice getting to see and hear from some of the characters from the first two books. Namely Spider! I think Ilsa does good in setting up his book which I've been waiting for since we met him in VWT. I fully recommend this wonderful book. It's full of angst, emotion, romance, and drama all rolled up into one. Readers won't be disappointed.
"I turned around and ran as hard as I could, away from those eyes, that body, that smile-and that f***ing perfection I didn't need."
