A bad boy from the wrong side of the tracks with a chip on his shoulder and fresh bruises from his latest fight, he went on to play the starring role in all my teenage fantasies. But I always knew he was off-limits. So, over the years I gave up wishing and hoping we could ever be together. Until he kissed me on a cold beach one starry winterโ€™s night. Until he said those five words that changed everything. ๐˜ ๐˜ฑ๐˜ช๐˜ค๐˜ฌ๐˜ฆ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ต๐˜ฉ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ธ๐˜ณ๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜จ ๐˜ด๐˜ช๐˜ด๐˜ต๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ.

REVIEW

There is something about a man with a troubled past and good intentions. Dylan is a yummy bad boy and I was really excited to learn more about his depth throughout this story. As for Scarlett, she won me over when she interacted with Dylan the night he picked the wrong window. She stood up for what she thought was right and forged her own path and I love that about her. I think both of these characters were just really likable for me, so that made the story that much better. It’s like you just knew they are meant to be, but you just don’t know if they’re going to overcome all the obstacles. I’d definitely recommend this one!

Dear Ava by Isla Madden-Mills

4.5 STARS!

Release Date: February 3, 2020

SYNOPSIS: The rich and popular Sharks rule at prestigious, ivy-covered Camden Prep. Once upon a time, I wanted to be part of their worldโ€”until one of them destroyed me. The last thing I expected was an anonymous love letter from one of them. Please. I hate every one of those rich jerks for what they did to me. The question is, which Shark is my secret admirer: Knox, the scarred quarterback and their leader, Dane, his twin brother, or Chance, the ex who dumped me…

Dear Ava,

Your eyes are the color of the Caribbean Sea.</del> Thatโ€™s stupid. 

What I really mean is, you look at me and I feel something REAL. Itโ€™s been ten months since you were here, but I canโ€™t forget you. Iโ€™ve missed seeing you walk down the hall. Iโ€™ve missed you cheering at my football games. Iโ€™ve missed the smell of your hair.The truth is, I wanted you back thenโ€”but you had him.And then everything fell apart that night.Donโ€™t hate me because Iโ€™m a Shark. I just want to make you mine. 

Still.

REVIEW: I’ve read almost every single one of Ilsa Madden-Mills’ books, so I had a feeling I would like this one. TALK ABOUT DARK AND MESSY CHARACTERS. I freakin’ loved them. If you’ve ever read my reviews, you may notice I have a soft spot of characters that have endured some trauma in their past. Which means these two main characters were all up in the feels for me. It starts really dark, and stays that way for a while. Luckily, Ava is a fierce female lead. I loved her journey throughout this book and the male love interest is just so enticing. There are a couple dirty scenes in this one that really speak to the strong connection these two have. The angst, the back and forth, the tear-jerk moments all make this book an emotional rollercoaster and I loved it. The only reason I wouldn’t give a full 5 stars is a personal preference. The ending just wasn’t my kind of ending, but you’ll have to read to see how you feel about it. If you like dark romances, I think you’ll enjoy this one tremendously!
