    4. 3.5-3.75 StarsMy emotions are all over the place - before, during and after reading this. I was extremely impressed with all the emotions I felt for Cuba and Dovey, but some parts of the story really bugged me. I'll explain more (if I can) in my upcoming review-------HOLY SHIT! This is Cuba's Story. Oh yeae to momma!(Photo image obtained from Ilsa Madden-Mills Facebook page)

    5. (I received an ARC of this book last year from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.)I tried so hard to like this book because of its lovely and promising synopsis. And of course, because of its gorgeous cover. I realized one thing: looks and high ratings can really deceive. The book gave me a hard time liking it. Why? 1.) There must be something wrong with the author's writing style, I could not connect with everything the book narrates.2.) The characters, especially Cuba “Hollywood” [...]

    7. Oh my me myLet's see. I think we need to wait until I'm able to catch my breath. Or my heart. If you thought Very Bad Things was an emotional roller coaster, think again! I think Very Wicked Things takes the icing on the cake for that one lol. From the novella we all know I loved Cuba but my second thought as soon as I started VWT was "omg he's such an asshole!!!". Don't believe me, ask Ilsa lol. All jokes aside, I thought Cuba was a huge ass. ButYes, there's a but. BUT, I couldn't help but love [...]

    8. Ok, I am a HUGE fan of Ilsa Madden Mills. As soon as I finished her debut novel Very Bad Things I was harassing her about what was coming next. VBT was one of my top 5 reads of 2013 and i wasn't sure how she was going to top it, but she DID! Very Wicked Things exceeded my expectations. It was so different from VBT, yet I fell in love with her writing even more. Ilsa covered a very difficult topic in this story with great care. Very Wicked Things is a beautifully written, emotional, and powerful [...]

    9. After the tease of Very Wicked Beginnings we finally get the full story to Cuba and Dovey. I can honestly say it was nothing like I expected. We begin this story about a year after we saw Cuba notice Dovey, the wooing stage but we start off not with a happy couple, but a broken hearted girl. Dovey isn’t sure what caused Cuba to break things off or not even look her in the eyes. She thought she fell for the guy that would be her white knight. Her soulmate. But in the end, she was cast aside whi [...]

    10. DNF sort of. I skimmed the rest of the book starting at the 66% mark. This book just didn't work for me. :( I felt disconnected from the characters once I hit the 40% mark. Then the chemistry between the heroine and hero started to fall flat, which made me grow bored with the story.I really hated the fact that the hero was written as a manwhore, which is basically how the first hero in the first book was written. I wanted a different hero this time around. Also, I had a hard time believing these [...]

    11. VWT was beyond amazing! We get to see who Cuba and Dovey really are and I was just in awe! We go on this really emotional, heartbreaking and beautiful journey with them as they grow into themselves and figure out who they are and who they may or may not be to each other. This was a very emotional read for me. I was sucked in from the very beginning and couldn't put it down until I finished! This one had my heart and soul gripped so tight that I felt I was right there with them. And in that momen [...]

    12. When we met Cuba in Very Bad Things he was the stuff that mothers warned their daughters about. Player. Heartbreaker. Manwhore. It’s not that Cuba is a bad guy, actually that is far from it. He never offers anything more than a good time. But even knowing who he is, Cuba still manages to leave broken heart-ed girls in his wake. One of those girls happens to be Dovey.Dovey is the girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Studying at the infamous Briarcrest Academy on a scholarship, Dovey is deter [...]

    13. 2 starsHave you ever read a book that you went into pretty much knowing what was going to happen, but hoping against all hope that you'll somehow end up liking it? Very Wicked Things was that book for me. I knew that Cuba was a dick and that something obviously happened to tear them apart but I trudged on thinking I could grow to like him and this book. However, that didn't happen.Cuba was an asshole of epic proportions. And even taking his troubled past and feelings into account, I still saw hi [...]

    14. Very Wicked Things is probably my most anticipated read of the year.  I fell in love with Ilsa Madden-Mills' writing when I read Nora and Leo's story in Very Bad Things.  She delivered heartfelt story surrounding an ultra privileged High School, that read nothing at all like a Young Adult novel. It also introduced us to numerous other characters, all deserving of much more attention.VWT focuses on one of those characters. Cuba. A guy that came across as not much more than a complete man whore [...]

To read about the characters Cuba and Dovey check out my review of Very Wicked Beginnings, the prequel novellaHERE!"Bad guys are always the prettiest, but then pretty is an understatement when it came to him. He was simply more."I want to start this review by saying that I was completely taken by this story. Very Wicked Things had so many twist and turns that I was constantly in awe of the imagination of Ilsa Madden-Mills’ mind. I am a huge fan of the first novel in this series, Very Bad Thing [...]

    16. I just can't excuse the way Cuba treated Dovey even if he had something bad happen to him. I felt sorry for Dovey and she deserved better from her boyfriend and her father. I was sad that she got dealt a shitty hand and tried her best to play it but was rewarded with broken trust, time and time again. Sorry but I needed a little something else before I can get with Cuba or Spider or even Sebastian.

    17. 4.5 Stars! Well, well! Ilsa Madden-Mills, I love to be surprised, and you certainly accomplished that!Very Wicked Things is one of those stories where the reader is gifted with a taste of several genres. First and foremost, though, VWT was a second-chance-type love story about two high school seniors--wealthy, Briarcrest Academy football star, Cuba, and scholarship student/ballerina, Dovey, product of one of Dallas' worst neighborhoods. Their brief, emotional relationship during junior year was [...]

    18. Omg! I thought Very Bad Things was emotionalwrong! Very Wicked Things, spun me round and round on a carousel of emotions.Dovey and Cuba were together in the past and needless to say their breakup was pretty brutal. Nothing makes getting your heart broken like being humiliated in front of the entire school.Bad guys are always the prettiest, but then pretty is an understatement when it came to him. He was simply more.Needless to say after that the two avoided each other like the plague. Each saw d [...]

    19. Ilsa Madden-Mills( I was provided an ARC for an HONEST review)When I love a book, I love hard and the days that follow soon after finishing, I find myself in a book slump because I'm still hung over and unable to get past it. That's exactly what Ilsa's debut novel, Very Bad Things did to me. So when she announced that the follow-up to this series would be coming, I was booming with excitement. However, the thing about follow ups is this-- when a reader such as myself who had fallen so deeply for [...]

    20. Review by Heather:Welcome back to Briarcrest Academy folks! I could NOT WAIT for this book. To say that I loved Very Bad Things is a vast understatement. I fell in love with these kids and I fell in love with Ilsa! It is one of the BEST debut novels I have ever read and I had very high expectations for this follow-up, Very Wicked Things. I am very proud to say that Ilsa did not disappoint. VWT is Cuba's book. Cuba is the resident bad boy. We got to know him in VBT and honestly I wasn't sure how [...]

    22. 3.5 StarsI was delighted to find that my review copy of Very Wicked Things also contained a surprise prequel novella, Very Wicked Beginnings. I absolutely loved every bit of that prequel, getting tons of insight into who Cuba and Dovey were before they met, how they grew up, their early family lives and how their initial relationship developed. Reading that novella was crucial because Very Wicked Things opens up with Dovey and Cuba, a year after their breakup. As a reader, I was so taken with th [...]

There were times I laughed, cried, and then there were times I wanted to throw my kindle I was [...]

I really enjoyed them :) Make sure you read my review for the prequel, Very Wicked Beginnings first!Ooooh Cuba, what have you done? Why did you hurt our girl like this?

    26. So the time is finally here! We get Ilsa Madden Mills second book Very Wicked Things! I was so excited about this. Her first book Very Bad Things was amazing, so I knew we were in store for another amazing read from this author. Dovey Beckham isn't your usual rich girl from Briarcrest Academy. She's quite the opposite in every way imaginable. Dovey is there on a scholarship. As a child Dovey lived in poverty. With a prostitute for a mother and a father who never cared, or was there. Dovey's life [...]
