Dearest Ivie by J. R. Ward #Romance #BookReview

Imagine feeling those eyes on you across a crowded room!


NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • In an exclusive ebook novella set in the world of the Black Dagger Brotherhood, J. R. Ward tells the story of a fiery couple . . . doomed by an undeniable passion.

Features a special preview of J. R. Ward’s upcoming Black Dagger Brotherhood novel, The Thief!

The last place Ivie expects to be approached by a devastatingly handsome male is in a crowded, smoky cigar bar rarely frequented by vampires—yet here he stands. Silas is flirtatious, gallant, and, above all, mysterious. Ivie is anything but. A nurse at the healer’s clinic and the daughter of a biker, Ivie is accustomed to speaking her mind. So she does. Since aristocrats rarely pick up females of her class, Ivie asks Silas just what kind of game he thinks he’s playing.

Despite her guarded exterior, Ivie surrenders to the fierce desire she feels for Silas. And yet, just as their courtship is heating up, he reveals that it cannot last, for he is bound to return to the Old Country. Their bond only deepens as they make the most of their precious time together. But when she learns the truth, Ivie must find a saving grace—before all is lost. . . .

My Review

Imagine feeling those eyes on you across a crowded room!

Ivie works long hours as a caregiver, not that she minds, helping others gives her great joy. But once in a while, she likes to go out on the town, and it’s on one of these occasions she meets the aristocrat, Silas.

The attraction is immediate and intense, but Ivie senses there are secrets Silas is keeping from her and she tries without much success to guard her heart.

Silas is drawn to the beautiful young woman he meets against his majordomo’s advice. It’s a mistake to get involved, but he can’t control his passion for his dearest Ivie. Now he has to figure out a way to tell her the truth.

This story is much more than your normal romance. At first, I was angry with Silas for leading Ivie on when he knew there was no chance for them– but then, love can’t be turned on and off like a water spout, and his desperation to grab a few happy moments while he could really touched my heart.

Ivie is my hero! Faced with an impossible decision, she steps up to the plate and proves more than worthy for the aristocrat.

I give Dearest Ivie 5 lovely kisses- Love can overcome the worst obstacles with faith!
