Holy MOSES!!! Ilsa Madden-Mills has gone and out done herself this time. I loved Very Bad Things, Very Wicked Things, and Very Wicked Beginnings but Very Twisted Things is so much more. This book can be read as a stand alone!!! I didn't think anyone could steal my heart away from Leo but Sebastian did!!! He's such a hottie and rock GOD but he has a heart of gold but just not sure if he wants to open it up to love or not.

"Fairy dust is not real. This I know." -from the journal of Violet St. Lyons

Let's start at the beginning....Violet is a 18 year old violin prodigy in New York city. Her parents are very prominent in the city, and she has the world at her feet. Until it all comes to an end on her 18th birthday.

V and her parents are going to Ireland for her birthday when something terrible happens to the plane and it crashes killing both of her parents but sparing her. She doesn't understand why fate allowed her to live, when all she wants and does is lock her self away from the prying eyes of the public. She stays hidden away in her Hollywood Hills mansion, and plays her violin. Until the day she meets Sebastian Tate.... "He was everything I didn't need."

Sebastian Tate ....just his name tells you he's hot!! He is the front man for the band Vital Rejects. He lives in Hollywood with his band mate Spider, and is trying to get his acting career going. He moves in next door to Violet and watches her play her violin on her patio at night. "Cloaked in her dark sounds, she was everything I never knew I wanted but I didn't like how it made me feel." Sebastian had been hurt when he was in high school at Briarcrest Academy by Emma, so he keeps his heart guarded.

Sebastian and Violet both make some bad decisions regarding their relationship. The friends with hot steamy benefits doesn't work for either of them. It takes them both some time to let their guards down and let love in.

In a Nutshell ...

Briarcrest Academy Book 3
Sebastian and Violet's Story
Stands Alone with HEA
4.5 stars

Very Twisted Things is the fourth installment in the Briarcrest Academy series by Ilsa Madden-Mills. It is preceded by ...

Book 1 - Very Bad Things, BA #1 (Leo and Nora)
Book 2 - Very Wicked Beginnings (Dovey and Cuba)
Book 3 - Very Wicked Things, BA #2 (Dovey and Cuba)

... and it completely stands alone. Very Twisted Things takes place five years down the road ... Sebastian and Spider are living in LA, taking a break from their successful music career. Sebastian is hoping to land a movie role and break into the film industry. He has become "smitten" with his neighbor, a gorgeous violinist who likes to play outside on her patio and balcony where Sebastian can watch through his binoculars. Creepy much? A little, but Sebastian somehow makes it work.

I REALLY, REALLY liked Sebastian and Violet. Sebastian is sexy as hell and has the best personality to go along with his yumminess. He's funny and charming but his Achilles heel is, of course he has one, that he's anti-relationships. And Violet ... I adore her! She's quirky and funny and there's no way you can't fall in love with her. She's been through her own personal hell and after a few years of virtual seclusion, she's ready to fight her way back. Enter Sebastian (and his binoculars) and things heat up!

Ilsa killed it with these two characters. I didn't even notice it wasn't until almost 60% when these two finally got busy. Up until then, the story is laden with tension and humor and sexy foreplay ... like I said, I was so wrapped up in the story I didn't even notice.

Two things that I especially loved about VTT ... the humor!

OMG this book was amazing. At first I thought it was going to rip my heart out and stomp on it but then it got even better. It had me going from sad to happy to mad to happy to wanting to jump in the book and hug or punch someone. OH THE FEELS! Of course I loved the characters. It is Sebastian Tate's story and I have loved him from the start of the series. He has grown up but is the sexy, smooth talking, rocker who happens to be the boy or man next door. Violet or V is a complex character that has some serious issues but after what she has been through I can't blame her. Also in this one is my new found love from book 2, Spider. Can you say bad boy? He is a sexy bad boy rocker who we will learn more about in the next book but I love him already. Now yes this is BOOK 3 of the series BUT you can read each book as a standalone. Trust me you will want to read them all. Such an amazing story and I can't wait to see wait Ilsa will come up with next.

Very Twisted Things by lIsa Madden-Mills

Review by Jen (BestSellers & BestStellars)

Very Twisted Things was amazing! I have been looking forward to Sebastian’s book ever since I met him in the previous books! You really feel everything that goes on between the characters and I loved every minute of it. This book had me laughing out loud during some scenes, and sad during others. lIsa has done another wonderful job!

I loved Violet. She’s smart, beautiful, and an amazing violinist. One event in her past forever changes her life. In the blink of an eye, everything that is important to her is taken away from her, including a part of herself. Violet keeps to herself in her Hollywood mansion, staying away from everyone, because she thinks she’s better off alone, even when people try to befriend her.

“It was dangerous to care for people. Something would happen to her. She’d die. Or she’d decide I was too much effort. Too strange. I didn’t need anybody. I was better alone.”

That is, until she meets her sexy neighbor, Sebastian Tate. She has no idea who he is, but she knows that he was definitely trouble and she needed to stay away from him.

“He was trouble with a capital T and hott with two t’s. He was everything I didn’t need.”

Even knowing that Sebastian is trouble, Violet can’t seem to stay away from him once they meet. When they’re together, the sparks fly, and even though Violet is broken, she was hoping that Sebastian would be the one to make her whole again, but she was wrong.

“It happened. He took a step from me, then another and another until he was nothing but a speck as her crossed the grass between our houses. I clutched my chest and wanted to fall to the ground and rail on it. Alone.
