“My hard heart wants the glass heart in her.”
I am wrecked.
Dear Ava will wreck all your emotions.
From the very beginning this book is emotional, gripping and riveting. Ilsa not only writes about an emotionally raw subject, but she captivated me with a relevant story that needs to be told.
I don’t want to say too much in my review because it is clear from the very first chapter what this story revolves around. However, there are also heavy underlying sub-plots that wrap all around each other and are crucial to the overall ending of the book. So….forgive my vagueness, but you need to experience this emotional story for yourself and you also need to discover the accused Shark to enjoy the entire ride.
“Why can’t a devil want an angel?”
Ava attends one of the richest schools in the state, but she does not come from the same background as the other students from Camden. She is able to attend the prep school on scholarship and that unfortunately makes her a target.
As much as she wants to be part of the crowd, it is made very clear during her junior year that she isn’t. When she returns her senior year it is with a singular purpose, vengeance. She just doesn’t know who she needs to extract that vengeance upon.
With no one to rely on except herself, she walks back into the lion’s den. What she never counted on was a secret admirer who also might be the only person who ever really saw her for her. Could she have an ally or is this just a Shark trick?
“I know what it’s like to be lonely. I know how it feels to walk into a room and feel as if no one really knows you.”
Dear Ava contains a lot of sensitive topics that could be hard for some readers to get past, but know that Ilsa writes everything with a purpose and nothing is graphic or written with insensitivity.
The rich and popular Sharks rule at prestigious, ivy-covered Camden Prep. Once upon a time, I wanted to be part of their world—until they destroyed me.
The last thing I expected was an anonymous love letter from one of them.
Please. I hate those rich jerks for what they did to me. The question is, which Shark is my secret admirer? Knox, the scarred quarterback, Dane, his twin brother, or Chance, the guy who dumped me . . .
Your eyes are the color of the Caribbean Sea.
Sh*t. That’s stupid.
What I really mean is, you look at me and I feel something REAL.
It’s been ten months since you were here, but I can’t forget you.
I’ve missed seeing you walk down the hall.
I’ve missed you cheering at my football games.
I’ve missed the smell of your hair.
And then everything fell apart that night.
Don’t hate me because I’m a Shark.
I just want to make you mine.
Not part of any other series. Dark high school romance. Recommended for 18+.
