Born on the poor side of town...
Ballerina Dovey Beckham is a scholarship student at Briarcrest Academy, determined to prove she’s more than just a girl with the wrong pedigree. She does whatever it takes to succeed in her endgame, even if it means surrendering her body…but never her heart.
Until the day she meets him, and he rips apart all her well-laid plans. Suddenly, the girl everyone thought unbreakable might just shatter.
Born into wealth and privilege...
Cuba “Hollywood” Hudson is rich, spoiled, and a star football player. With his fast cars and superficial girlfriends, he lives the high-life, hiding his secrets from the world.
Until the day he meets her, and she offers him something he’s never tasted... love.
But once in a lifetime kind of love doesn’t come easy. When trust crumbles and doubts creep in, both will have to decide to either love or let go... forever.
Welcome to Briarcrest Academy, where sometimes, only the wicked survive.
Can opposites attract? Can two people that grew up in different worlds have a relationship? Will their pasts keep them apart? Will their pasts effect their future? What will Dovey do when her past forces her to make decisions that will effect her life? Decisions that will effect her and Cuba.
Love is hard, but when you have so many factors pulling you apart, you have to fight harder. But will Dovey and Cuba fight to stay together or will their love destroy them?
Very Wicked Things is a great read. I fell in love with Cuba and Dovey in Very Wicked Beginnings , so I was dying to see what happened with the two of them in Very Wicked Things.
Ilsa will have you on the edge of your seats while reading. These two are both fighting the demons of the past, and they are struggling as individuals, not to mention as a couple. Your heart will brake for both, Cuba and Dovey. There were several moments that I wanted to punch Cuba in the balls on Dovey's behalf. Things that came out of his mouth were horrid. But when one hurts, they usually lash out. So while I struggled to hate him for the things he did, I still loved him.
Dovey will steal your heart. You will route for her from the beginning. She is strong. She is fierce. She is not a quitter. She was an amazing heroin.
In Very Wicked Things, you will definitely get the wicked moments, but you will also get the sweet, sensual ones as well. I highly recommend this series. You will LOVE it.
