Frisky Friday Book Recommendation: Very Twisted Things by Ilsa Madden-Mills

When I’m not writing,  I’m reading…  You can view my Goodreads profile and click on “currently reading.”



A sassy violinist who lives next door.
An obsessed rock star who watches her through binoculars.
And one night when she bares it all.
Life will never be the same in Tinseltown.

Vital Rejects front guy Sebastian Tate never imagined his YouTube music video would go viral, sky-rocketing him to acting success in Hollywood. Okay, maybe he did. After all, he’s a cocky dude who knows he’s hot-as-hell, and it was only a matter of time before his stars aligned.

But life in Tinseltown is never what it seems.

After being cheated on by his ex-lover, his only rule to falling in love is simple: Keep Calm and Don’t Do It. So, spying on his mysterious new neighbor with binoculars seems innocent enough, but quickly escalates into an erotic game between two very unlikely people.

Twenty-year-old Violet St. Lyons is a world-renowned violinist who’s lost her mojo on stage. She hides away in a Hollywood mansion, trying to find her way through her twisted past in order to make her future.

He’s the life of the party with girls chasing him down for his autograph. She’s the introvert with a potty mouth who doesn’t even know who he is.

When they meet, stars collide, sparks fly, and clothes come off. Yet, giving his heart to a girl isn’t Sebastian’s plan; falling for a guy who craves attention isn’t Violet’s.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy—Hollywood style—where sometimes the best things in life are VERY TWISTED THINGS.

This book is a standalone even though it’s part of a series. Everything you need to know is in this book. Genre: 18+ Hot New Adult Romance.

My Thoughts:

This was my first read by Ilsa Madden-Mills, but it will definitely not be my last. The prologue grabbed me instantly, and I couldn’t stop reading. So, when real life swept in and took me away from reading Very Twisted Things, I was beyond annoyed because this is definitely a one sitting read – you will want to devour it.

I love stories about celebrities and Hollywood Romance – sign me up asap! Madden-Mills nails the Hollywood scene perfectly: Fake relationships, staged photo ops, a Bitchy “Hollywood Sweetheart” and sharp-tongued British Rock star – Nailed it!

The central characters are Sebastian, a rich and famous Rock star/Musician, and Violet, a terribly lonely violinist. These two will have you pulling for them and laughing at every turn… and the chemistry between them is scorching hot!

The dialogue is deliciously witty. The scenes are vividly constructed. The story is woven together with captivating precision. I am not normally a fan of New Adult romances, but this one blew me away.

Five fabulously twisted stars! Hurry, hurry get reading!
