Review of Very Wicked Beginnings (Briarcrest Academy 1.5) by Ilsa Madden-Mills

Synopsis: A Prequel Novella

Girls say I’m a walking, talking sex god. Guys call me Hollywood because my life is golden.

It’s not.

But, ESPN did rank me as a four-star recruit, calling me one of the best defensive players since Briarcrest Academy opened its esteemed doors. So yeah, with football and a stellar GPA, my future seemed good.

Then Dovey Beckham shows up in her short skirts and ballet shoes. Driving me insane. Making me want to beg for her attention.

But that wouldn’t happen, because Cuba Hudson didn’t beg for anything.

She walked around BA like she owned the place, and most days she looked right through me…the one girl I couldn’t have. So, of course, I made it my mission to claim her, to put her notch on my bedpost.

Because no girl can resist the Heartbreaker of BA.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy, where wicked love begins…and ends.

WARNING: This dark and twisty new adult romance contains sexual situations and graphic language.

4.5 Stars!

Review: This is a prequel for Very Wicked Things, the second book in the Briarcrest Academy series. It provides some back story on where Cuba and Dovey's relationship starts during their junior year of high school. Dovey is from Ratcliffe, the poor side of town, and Cuba is from Highland Park, the rich area of town. They appear to be world's apart, yet they are both drawn to one another. 

Dovey has come a long way to make it to Briarcrest, and she is a scholarship student, so she gets overlooked a lot. Cuba notices her one day, while she is at dance practice. He gets knocked down at football practice because he is so mesmerized by her. He begins to pursue her, and, even though she knows that it is a bad idea, you can tell that she is slowly weakening towards him. 

This book is pretty short, and it ends by leaving it up in the air if Dovey gives in to Cuba, so you have to read book 2 to find out what happens next!
