REVIEW: The Education of Ivy Leavold by Sierra Simone

I knew I was taking a risk loving a man like Julian Markham. But I thought that love was enough to cover over his darkness.

I thought wrong.

The seduction and claiming of Ivy Leavold continues in the second book of the Markham Hall trilogy.

Our Review

Shel: Well dayum. I thought book one was wickedly hot...this one is hotter than hot. It's thermonuclear hot. It's fucking hot, y'all. Damn. Court: Scorching. Intense. Walked the edge of our comfort zone. Fucking hot. One-handed reading...!

Shel: In book two, the plot picks up right where it left off and we continue to see the turmoil that Ivy feels over Julian and the deaths of his previous wives. Her desire and love/lust and her guilt are all tangled together and have her running to him and from him, often. Court: Wouldn't you be concerned? Just a touch! But...once awakened, Ivy is a flower that is blooming beautifully, and she is taking what is hers. And you know what. YES. Just, fucking yes. Silas. Julian. Ivy. I cannot say more....but, I don't think you'll know what hit you! 

Shel: By the end of this book we have more answers and new questions about what exactly is going on with Julian. We also have some sexy times and see a little more of Julian's friends (sigh). So. Many. Questions. So. Much. Turmoil....and Emotion. I am in love with the prose, and the ability to immerse myself in this "old world" world that Sierra has given us. I just cannot get enough! 

Shel: By the end I felt so bad for Julian--and yet I understood why Ivy had to do what she did. And now..NOW?!! I must wait for book three. It feels like it'll be forever until I get it. :/ Court: RIGHT! Dying. Just dying. But you know what...I felt a little bit of hope too. Along with my sadness, and anger, and overall bitterness at the things that I "think" to be true. And if my predictions are correct...well...I hope I'm right!!!
