Very Bad Things (Briarcrest Academy #1) by Ilsa Madden-Mills


Born into a life of privilege and secrets, Nora Blakely has everything any nineteen-year-old girl could desire. She’s an accomplished pianist, a Texas beauty queen, and on her way to Princeton after high school. She’s perfect…
Leaving behind her million-dollar mansion and Jimmy Choos, she becomes a girl hell-bent on pushing the limits with alcohol, drugs, and meaningless sex.

Then she meets her soulmate. But he doesn’t want her.

When it comes to girls, twenty-five-year-old Leo Tate has one rule: never fall in love. His gym and his brother are all he cares about…until he meets Nora. He resists the pull of their attraction, hung up on their six year age difference.

As they struggle to stay away from each other, secrets will be revealed, tempers will flare, and hearts will be broken.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy…where sometimes, the best things in life are Very Bad Things

Definitely one of my favourite book this year. It is so brilliantly written, It has enchant me from start to finish.
Nora seems to have it all, she is very smart, she’s beautiful, an accomplished pianist and she’s rich or her parents are, she’s perfect or is she?

Leo, 25, has lost his parents at a very young age, he gave up his dream to take care of his younger brother Sebastian. Losing his parents lead him to believe that “loving people hurts, losing them destroys you” So, he promised himself never to fall in love.

Until he mets Nora.

I cannot rave enough as to how I love the characters of this book, how I love everything in this book. The chemistry between Nora and Leo, was just staggering, it’ll leave you breathless!


Nora, you cannot help but love her, she’s broken but she’s a fighter. Leo, his beautiful inside and out, his just so afraid to love that he kept pushing Nora away, to the point of hurting each other. Agggghhh! The sexual tension, the angst, it was funny, heartbreaking and just beautiful.

Highly Recommend!!!
