#FridayReviews DEAR AVA by @ilsamaddenmills #mustread #pageturner #emotional #boookreview 🔥🔥💋💋💋💋😍

Hello All:

It’s Friday… Most of us are probably at home due to this crazy pandemic. I am having fun with the kids. Not really they driving me up the wall especially the little one. Thanks to all the authors that have made some books available for free, recently grab Fighter by @tijanbooks Also this is a great time for me to catch up with my TBR list.

This week I will be reviewing Dear Ava by Ilsa Madden-Mills. Have you read it yet? Check out my thoughts below.


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 every one of 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 ex who dumped me. . .

Dear Ava,
Your eyes are the color of the Caribbean Sea.
Wait. 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 the night of the kegger.

Don’t hate me because I’m a Shark.
I just want to make you mine.

DEAR AVA…. Pager-turning, realistic and emotional read

This book captivated me from the start. It was not the beginning I was expecting to be honest. It is heart-wrenching and leave so questions unanswered that you couldn’t wait to get to the next page.

The pages turned easily because of the curiosity of Ava. Her complexity intrigued me. She is driven, unpredictable, passionate, stubborn but at the same time timid, scared, lonely. Due to recent events in here life she has become more driven than ever before. She knows what she wants and knows what it takes to get it. Nothing will stand in her except maybe a Shark.

The storyline is intriguing and realistic. The book touches on a topic that too many women have experienced in this world with only few amount of justice.

I loved that the characters had depth. The relationship between the main characters wasn’t forced and actually happened in a way that felt whimsical.

The more I read the more I became drawn into the story. I felt protective of Ana and only wanted the best for her and sweet Tyler.

Dear Ava has heartache, drama, violence, cruelty and is triumphant. This is a book that I know that I will read again. If you have ever read any of Ilsa Madden-Mills books, you should know that this one won’t disappoint. It’s a must read.
