Dirty English By Ilsa Madden-Mills

A scarred fighter.

A girl with rules.

One night of unbridled passion.

There are three things you need to know about Elizabeth Bennett: she’s smart as a whip, always in control, and lives by a set of carefully crafted rules. She’s learned the hard way that people you love the most always hurt you in the end.

But then she meets Declan Blay, the new neighbor at her apartment complex.

A tattooed British street fighter, he’s the campus bad boy she’s supposed to avoid, but when he saves her from a frat party gone bad, all her rules about sex and love fly out the window.

She gives him one night of unbridled passion, but he longs for more. 

With only a cardboard-thin wall separating their bedrooms, he dreams of possessing the vulnerable girl next door forever.

One night. Two damaged hearts. The passion of a lifetime.

After been attacked by her school sweetheart on prom night, Elizabeth promises herself never to be that weak girl again. She tells herself when it comes to men, to sexual relationships she will be the one in control, but when she meets Declan, it all gets thrown out the window. She knows from the minute she lays eyes on him he's different. Not only because he's not the weak, nerdy type she can be in control of in the bedroom, but because she talks to him, can stand to be alone with him. 

Declan, the ever so fit British fighter, is not only the campus bad boy, but is also a book reader. An avid one at that. He know's his Pride and Prejudice and doesn't care who knows it. The only thing I didn't get is the bad boy on campus, he wasn't that kind of lad to me. I think it's the image that gave him that title and not anything he actually does. 

The two live next door to each other, and the more she pushes him away, the more he is drawn for more time with the strange girl next door. 

When the two share a night together, he wants more, so much more, but it goes beyond Elizabeth's promise to herself. 

The story is about two people finding themselves after struggling through life and life horrific situations. 

The only thing that annoyed me was the chosen words for British Slang. I don't know if it's from where I'm from, but some of the things they said, we NEVER say. You'd have to old and pompous to say it LOL That's just me though and where I come from.

Very Bad things 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. Or is she?

Leaving behind her million-dollar mansion and Jimmy Choos, she changes the course of her life, becoming a girl hell-bent on pushing the limits with alcohol, drugs, and meaningless sex.

Then through a chance encounter, 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.
Read on for my review.....
