Widowed photographer Ivy Langdon avoids people in general after her husband’s death. She ventures out days before Christmas for last minute gifts and stumbles into the middle of a terrorist attack in London.  Will her luck ever change?

Steven Samuels and his partner Gareth Richardson are called in with their company, Blackbird Security Firm, to rescue the hostages.  They never expected to find their perfect mate while saving the world.  The more the two wolves learn about Ivy, the more that they want to make her theirs.

Love is never simple or straight-forward and life is often stranger than fiction.

Ivy finds herself drawn into a strange world of shifters and human traffickers.

Can love’s true bite find her before trouble does?

***This review contains spoilers.***

Donovan has the great ability to pull you into the story immediately.  I just wasn’t expecting Ivy to be the girlfriend of two wolves.  I had always pictured that one wolf, the alpha, would be territorial, you know what I mean?  So the fact that Ivy ends up with both Steven and Gareth turned me off a bit; just because it isn’t my thing.

The other thing that bothered me a bit was that Ivy just went along with the fact that the men she was interested in were wolves.  I feel like the book was good, but could have benefited from more.  More character development.  More time to form the relationship between them all.  And especially more time for Ivy to accept the fact that they were werewolves.

I really don’t mean this to be a negative review; I’m just writing what stood out to me.

That being said, Ivy was a fun, quick read that held my interest.

My Rating: 3 stars
