    4.5 Aristocrat Meets Commoner Stars!! What a journey! This little novella packed a powerful emotional punch!! I can?t say too much without giving major plot spoilers, but, I will say I loved Silas, Ivie, and Ivie?s fun family, especially her overprotective commoner Vampire (Bi...

    4 ?'s ?I thought you needed an oak of your own right now.? Sooo, I'm not really sure what this novella has to do with the BDB. I guess The Warden just had a story to tell but to be fair, I'm not done reading The Thief so I'll hold off on any more assumptions. Still, it...

    ????? I absolutely loved Dearest Ivie. Loved it! I must admit I was getting twitchy at the 60% mark, I was worried Ward was going to pull a Fanetti move but thankfully she didn't. I loved both Ivie and Silas, Ivie is one of the best female characters I've read in the BD...

    Okay...some background first. I stopped reading BDB way back when Vishous got stuck with a ghost for a mate. If I ever considered picking the series back up...the urge swiftly passed as the direction Ward took in subsequent books was not one I wanted to follow. All that said, I DID...

    This book is not for me. I couldn't enjoy this book DUE TO PERSONAL PREFERENCES only. The first part of the book was fine. The second part however I couldn't stand. Due to my personal life experiences, I found the topic of this story truly, TRULY dislikable. Since I was yo...

    Dearest Ivie is a sweet, sometimes poignant love story about two people who, under normal circumstances, would never have met. But fhate has other ideas and steps in to bring them together ... just in time. ...

    WOW!!!!! "Of all the places I've gone and people I've known and things I've done...my love for you is the purest representation of who I am. It's the best of me, of who I am, of my soul. My love for you...is everything of me" -Silas Now if this quote doesn't hit home just how ...

    5 "Dearest Ivie" Stars! Ms. Ward had my heart in my throat with this very captivating novella set in the BDB world. I think she likes keeping her readers on edge. It's cool. She's a master. I dropped a couple silent tears. Could have been sadness; could have been rage. Either way, ...

    I admit after the previous book The Chosen which I seemed to find equal parts infuriating and disappointing I am a little relieved to find that I adored Dearest Ivie. It harkened back to the bad old days of the Black Dagger Brotherhood where the romance was central and an addictive mix...

    4.5 stars. This book is JR at her best. Really solid, likable, relatable H and h. The friend and family were wonderful. The storyline is clear and (unfortunately too predictable) with wonderful symmetry. It was a right fit for a novella given the plot. I did find a couple of edit...

    Genre: Paranormal Romance Type: Standalone Novella (Book 15.5 from Black Dagger Brotherhood series) POV: Third Person Rating: Ivie Hannaford never thought a night out with her cousin would end up with her meeting someone when she was wasn't even looking. But the attracti...

    A short novella that is sweet, heartwarming and heartbreaking all at the same time! This was a treat to get a glimpse into our favourite vampire series!!! I?m very eager for the next instalment of the BDB ! JR Ward is a genius when it comes to this world that she has created. The onl...

    4.5 stars! Omg this was so good and what a breath of fresh air it was! I mean here I was thinking that I was skipping ?The Chosen? since I haven?t put on my big girl pants and read the book. Anyway I was prepared to miss events from the ?chosen? just to read this novella b...

    4.5 Stars! Silas is a vampire from the old country who is quite proper but doesn?t adhere to any aristocratic snobbery. Upon laying eyes on a fiery woman, he decides it is time to pursue her before it?s too late. ?I don?t have time to waste. And instead of finding o...

    RTC Just wanted to try the first chapter but I finished the first half of the book in one hour. ...

    4.5 Aristocrat Meets Commoner Stars!! What a journey! This little novella packed a powerful emotional punch!! I can?t say too much without giving major plot spoilers, but, I will say I loved Silas, Ivie, and Ivie?s fun family, especially her overprotective commoner Vampire (Bi...

    4 ?'s ?I thought you needed an oak of your own right now.? Sooo, I'm not really sure what this novella has to do with the BDB. I guess The Warden just had a story to tell but to be fair, I'm not done reading The Thief so I'll hold off on any more assumptions. Still, it...

    ????? I absolutely loved Dearest Ivie. Loved it! I must admit I was getting twitchy at the 60% mark, I was worried Ward was going to pull a Fanetti move but thankfully she didn't. I loved both Ivie and Silas, Ivie is one of the best female characters I've read in the BD...

    Okay...some background first. I stopped reading BDB way back when Vishous got stuck with a ghost for a mate. If I ever considered picking the series back up...the urge swiftly passed as the direction Ward took in subsequent books was not one I wanted to follow. All that said, I DID...

    This book is not for me. I couldn't enjoy this book DUE TO PERSONAL PREFERENCES only. The first part of the book was fine. The second part however I couldn't stand. Due to my personal life experiences, I found the topic of this story truly, TRULY dislikable. Since I was yo...

    Dearest Ivie is a sweet, sometimes poignant love story about two people who, under normal circumstances, would never have met. But fhate has other ideas and steps in to bring them together ... just in time. ...

    Short and sweet novella set in the BDB world. I enjoyed Silas and Ivie together, especially uncovering some of the mystery going on later in the book. It was nice to see some non-glymera vampires for a change. And I was very pleased (view spoiler)[ there was a happy ending! (hide spoil...

    Reading next...will be F(BR) with War & CC! because one BDB in a week is not enough hahah I'll be in the middle! ...

    5 "Dearest Ivie" Stars! Ms. Ward had my heart in my throat with this very captivating novella set in the BDB world. I think she likes keeping her readers on edge. It's cool. She's a master. I dropped a couple silent tears. Could have been sadness; could have been rage. Either way, ...

    I admit after the previous book The Chosen which I seemed to find equal parts infuriating and disappointing I am a little relieved to find that I adored Dearest Ivie. It harkened back to the bad old days of the Black Dagger Brotherhood where the romance was central and an addictive mix...

    4.5 stars. This book is JR at her best. Really solid, likable, relatable H and h. The friend and family were wonderful. The storyline is clear and (unfortunately too predictable) with wonderful symmetry. It was a right fit for a novella given the plot. I did find a couple of edit...
