Dear Ava, available now!


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

Dane, his twin

Or Chance, the ex who dumped
me. . .

Dear Ava,

Your eyes are the color of the
Caribbean Sea.

Wait. That’s

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

the night of the kegger.

“What do you want?” Knox says with as sneer as I ease in the
football locker room. Cold eyes flick over my cheer skirt then move up and land on the hollow of
my throat. It’s not cool enough at night for our sweater uniform so tonight my top is the red and
white V-cut vest with CP embroidered on my chest.

“Where’s Chance?”
He whips off his sweat-covered jersey along with the pads
underneath. “I don’t keep tabs on my best friend for you. Get out—before I scare you.”

He’s scaring me already.
But I can’t stop looking at him.
His shoulders are broad and wide, his chest lightly dusted with
sparse golden hair, tan from the sun, rippling with powerful muscles, leading down to a tapered
and trim waist. He has a visible six-pack, and my gaze lingers briefly on a small tattoo on his
hip, but I can’t tell what it is. He isn’t brawny or beefy-looking like one might expect from a guy
blessed with his athletic prowess, but sculpted and molded and—

Dropping my gaze, I stare at the floor. I shouldn’t be ogling him.
Chance is my maybe-boyfriend.

I hear male laughter from one of the rooms that branch off from
the locker room, maybe the showers, and I deflate, guessing that’s where Chance is.

Glancing up, I intend to ask him to tell Chance I came by to
congratulate him on his two touchdowns, but my voice is frozen. Knox has unlaced his grassstained pants and is shucking them off. His legs are heavily muscled and taut, unlike the leaner
build of Chance. His underwear are white and tight, cupping his hard ass, the outline of his

“Like what you see, charity case? You can look, but you can’t

Anger soars, replacing my embarrassment. I know I’m just the
scholarship girl at Camden, but why does he have to
constantly remind me?
“Don’t worry about me touching anything. I don’t like ugly.” The words tumble out before I can stop them. I meant his superior
attitude, not his face, but I see the moment when he freezes and takes it the wrong way.

He touches his face, tracing his scar while his jaw pops. “Get
the hell out. Only players allowed in here.”

I pivot and go for the door, forcing myself not to run. “Asshole,”
I mutter.

His laughter follows me.

Dear AvaDear Ava by Ilsa Madden-Mills

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh the feels….

Dear Ava is an amazing heartfelt read. All the emotions are there…..anger, sadness and in the end happiness.

Ava and Knox’s story is one that you won’t easily forget. The pain and struggles that they both endure make this a book that will hold your heart all the way through. The author gave us a story that touched on a terrible event but she wrote it with taste and thoughtful for those with triggers. Her words gripped my heart and made me a blubbering mess. I highly recommend this wonderful read.
