bestselling author Ilsa Madden-Mills

Release Date May 13,



Born on the poor side of town…

Ballerina Dovey Beckham is a scholarship student at

Briarcrest Academy, determined to prove she’s more than just a girl with the wrong

pedigree. She does whatever it takes to succeed in her endgame, even if it means

surrendering her body…but never her heart.

Until the day she meets him, and he rips apart all her well-
laid plans. Suddenly, the girl everyone thought unbreakable might just shatter.

Born into wealth and privilege…

Cuba “Hollywood” Hudson is rich, spoiled, and a star

football player. With his fast cars and superficial girlfriends, he lives the high-life, hiding

his secrets from the world.

Until the day he meets her, and she offers him something

he’s never tasted…love.

But once in a lifetime kind of love doesn’t come

easy. When trust crumbles and doubts creep in, both will have to decide to either love or

let go…forever.

Welcome to Briarcrest Academy, where sometimes, only

the wicked survive.


Cuba’s POV

Not exactly a meet-cute…

The room closed in, making me sweat. I hadn’t talked

to her in over a year, and now here we were, face-to-face. Two ex-lovers who hated each


I had to get away from her.

Dovey tilted her head as I stood, giving me a scathing

glare. “Leaving so soon? Yeah, go ahead, cut and run. Coward.”

I ignored her and tried to get Weinstein’s attention, to

let her know she could flunk me for all I cared.

“Before you go, tell me one thing, and I’ll make sure

we aren’t partners in this class. You’ll be free of me,” she said.

“What?” I asked, my voice going all raspy, blocking all

the words I wanted to say. They weren’t things she ever needed to hear.

“Why so cruel to me? You aren’t to the other girls you

date and dump. Why single me out?”

I seethed. “And it didn’t take you long to find someone

else, now did it? How is Spider? Does he get you hot like I did?”

She smirked. “He’s fine. He thinks I hung the moon.

He thinks you’re an ass. I agree.”

I tightened my fists and pressed them against my

thighs, swearing to myself I wasn’t responding to her bait. I swore. She was a dangerous

game I didn’t need to play.

Suddenly, her face fell. Was she recalling the last time

we were together? Was she remembering how I used to…

“I trusted you,” she whispered, all her anger seeming

to be gone. The unsteadiness of her voice undid me, sent me right over the edge of that

precarious cliff I’d been hanging on to by the skin of my teeth.

Yeah, she hadn’t been the only one who’d trusted me.

I’d ruined them all. Every last one. Dark thoughts assaulted me, of the blood I had on my


Snap! My pencil broke and small pieces flew across my

desk and into the empty space between us.

I wanted to pummel my desk until my fists bled. I

wanted to punch a hole through the wall, the floor, my face.

Everything was my fault. Just mine.

She’d been collateral damage, the kind that breaks

everyone involved. And I was sorry for it, but sometimes you do what hurts because it’s

for the best.

But she was my kryptonite, leaving me no option but to

hurt her. Again.

I didn’t think about my cruel words, I just said them.

“You were a curiosity, Dovey. You weren’t the usual BA girl, and I wanted a taste.

That’s all. I moved on when it got boring. Get over it.”

Author Bio:

Ilsa Madden-Mills is a loving wife and mother, a loyal

friend, and a teacher. When all that is done, she writes. Obsessively.

She spent several years teaching high school English, but

now hangs out at home with two small kids, a neurotic cat, and her Viking husband. She

collects magnets and rarely cooks except to bake her own pretzels.

When she’s not typing away at a story, you can find

her drinking too much Diet Coke, jamming out to Pink, or checking on her carefully

maintained chocolate stash.

She loves to hear from fans and fellow authors.
