Ivy Entwined (A Something to Celebrate Novel) (Entangled Edge)


Ivy Entwined, Laura Simcox
Review from jeannie zelos book reviews

I thought this sounded fun. It was one of those though that’s an OK book, a decent read, well written and yet didn’t quite make any more that that for me…I’m looking for drama, emotion, a storyline that tugs at me. I need to like the characters too and here I just didn’t quite belive in them. Marcus seems to get the flack for deceit and yet Ivy was doing the same thing so I couldn’t see why she was so righteous….
Clearly town planning in US is different to here in UK, as it takes years sometimes for new stores to get passed. We’ve had our own Megamart style battle here – all the same arguments trotted out as Ivy and co give against Megamart – it took fourteen years for Tesco to get permission in our town, and yet here in the book its done in days? Ditto the land sales/exchanges – here it takes weeks and papaers in mutliple copies, there its just a simple pop in to office and its done…Still, maybe its just artistic licence? Whatever it was, it lead to a feeling of unreality for me, when I need to feel the story is real. I did like the chemistry between Marcus and Ivy and that certainly brought some heat and action to the story and the twist at the end – I didn’t see that coming.
Stars: three, its a decent read but not one to really get the heart racing for me. Still, if you like simple small town romance this could be a winner for you.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
