    I really didn't like this book. It failed to pull me into the story because the the characters are flat and unrealistic. Actually the whole story line never really rang true. Sure it's a small town and you're good friends with the police chief, but what professional cop is going to not take a suspected victim of abuse to a hospital to get checked out. I don't care if she wont talk or not. Seriously it went downhill from there. It seems the characters have nothing better to do than spend their ti I really didn't like this book.

It seems the characters have nothing better to do than spend their time speculating when the two main characters are going to have sex with each other and that one of those involved in the speculation happens to the be the brother and father of the female lead is disturbing and icky. The plot relies very heavily upon coincidence and cliche: the poor little foster child sucked into an abusive relationship with a seemingly benign older authority figure, the neglectful money-hungry foster parents, the long lost brother who just happens to be living mere miles away all this time. And even a therapeutic horse riding event for no apparent reason. I struggled to finish reading this book and I won't be continuing this series.

    This book was so good! It has the same sweet and cozy atmosphere as the first one. There are some very dark and sickening implications in this installment but I do not think that they take over the whole story, though they are integral to it.

There are some very dark and sickening implications in this installment but I do not think that they take over the whole story, though they are integral to it. A little while after the whole cult thing from the previous novel, Ivy heads out to her greenhouse to get a sapling for a customer when she finds a young woman hiding behind them, dirty, frightened, and bruised. The poor thing doesn't say a word and just starts to scream when encountered. Naturally Ivy calls Jack and Brian out, but because of the girls terrible reaction to people, Ivy is the one that maintains contact and tries to help her out. Eventually the hider starts to speak and comes around to trusting Ivy. Now that she does, Ivy is determined to help the child and figure out what is scaring her so. Since the poor dear has been traumatized, she will be staying with Ivy until she is ready to talk, much to Jack's dismay. The two of them butt heads a lot in 'Wicked Dreams' but it is always with the best of intentions, and it is truly apparent how much they care for one another. That is the top note at play in this book. Even though there is a seriously dark undertone to the story, it is lightened up by the sweet silliness that seems to follow the heroine around. The side characters also play a large roll in spurring the romance on, and Max is once again relentless with teasing his sister. It's quite amusing! I think that is one reason that the Ivy Morgan books are so good. They may dip into some dark subjects but it never goes in too deep. The stories maintain levity which makes them quite enjoyable. I would imagine it's difficult to balance those two spectrum's but I think Hart does it amazingly well! Her writing is engaging and the characters are endearing. The two lovebirds are getting closer and closer, and the mystery and suspense of the background story is ever threateningly present. This is a fantastic read! I almost completely read it in one setting because I didn't want to put it down! Everything ends on a happy note and I am really excited to see where the author is going to take Ivy and the rest of her cast. It's such a delightful setup and I find the side characters, though occasionally pushy, to be a great addition to the books. I can't wait for more fluffy moments between Ivy and Jack. I will have to read the next one real soon!

    This was amazing! I LOVE this series! Very deep subject matter - child abuse/molestation handled with kid gloves and in an amazingly compassionate way. It seems so out of date that the townsfolk think of Ivy as a "witch" since she does not adhere to Christian Doctrine and so they vilify her because they do not understand (nor do they make any attempt to understand) her point of view. The reality of that is 180 degrees - she is a compassionate individual, secure in her Spirituality, who works to This was amazing! I LOVE this series!

I enjoy an author who teaches thru her writing and shows us that our differences are what make us all special, not what make us scary. It's the evil we intend that makes us scary.

Kelly stays with Ivy while they try to get her to talk to tell them what is going on. Kelly life is filled with tragedy and she fell through the cracks in the system. Ivy finds herself visiting Jack's dreams which he is calling her to join him there. The development of the characters was a breath of fresh air in the build up. I also like Max who happens to be Ivy's brother who is a ladies man so to speak. I also like that the story touched a bit on Ivy's abilities pointing to them being a little magical. You need to read the book to see what has happened to Kelly and who is the one hurting her. It is fast paced and it does not disappoint.

    Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star... This book was bad, so bad I may have given up and skipped to the end. I will avoid this author like the plague in the future. 2 stars... This book was not very good, and I won't be reading any more from the author. 3 stars... This book was ok, but I won't go out of my way to read more, But if I find another book by the author for under a dollar I'd pick it up. 4 sta Since I don't normally write reviews unless I have something specific to say, here's the break down of how I rate my books... 1 star...

Really showed the pitfalls that are around for vulnerable teens and the shortcomings of the foster parent system. The characters have really opened up in this book.

    Obvious, but Enjoyable I liked the plot even though it was predictable. The culprit was very obvious. I would really like to see some differences in the way the characters speak. All of the author's characters in all of her books speak the exact the same. It tends to get boring after awhile. In can forgive it to an extent (if the story is good). This series has a bit of potential, but I want the language to be different.I am tired of "schmaltzy" and repetitive dialogues.

    This book really needs a trigger warning for abuse survivors. The main characters annoy me. They are both whiny and shouty which is aggravating and although we are supposed to like Jack and despise the abuser, there are many controlling and dominating aspects arising in his personality. Finally, in what world would a victim, especially a teenager be left in the care of a random woman and not be taken to hospital for a rape kit test?

    Fun series to read Ivy stumbles upon an abused and traumatized girl. The abuser wants the girl back and set out to try to get her from Ivy. Jack isn't going to allow that to happen. The are scenarios of Ivy's unique abilities in this book. Max and Felicity are interesting people. I can't wait to see if Felicity helps Ivy embrace what she is capable of because Ivy does have some power.

    Child abuse comes to town. Ivy found a beaten teen girl in her greenhouse. Ivy and Jack help her come out of her shell. When her abuser comes back Ivy and Kelly outsmart him, and get away before help can arrive. Thing get a lot worse soon. This is a page turner, ups and downs all the way through.

    Great Sequel I loved this one even more than the first. There's a little more magic involved and Ivy and Jack are too cute. They're making their way towards happiness. This time, they have a terrified teenager to save and everyone bands together to pitch in. I love Ivy's family. I also love how much Jack opens up. These two are so good for each other.

    I'm on the fence regarding this series. I want to like it rather more than I actually like it. In some ways it comes close to but just misses the mark. Perhaps the pacing doesn't feel right (to me) and the characters don't behave quite the way it seems they ought. It is certainly not bad in any way. It just feels as if it could have been better.

    “We have forever, and everywhere.” Ivy and Jack are moving closer as they deal with a young girl found hiding in Ivy’s greenhouse. The secret she’s hiding could be bigger than either one can live through. Another super series! Great characters and fun scenes. Awesome read! Enjoy!!!

    Fabulous Book This mystery was about a young teenaged girl, found bruised and hysterical in Ivy's nursery. I loved how Ivy insisted on Kelly staying with her, and trying to ease Kelly into telling who had abused her. And I loved how Ivy's family rallied around the girl lending support and showing her what a healthy loving family is like. The book had an awesome ending.

    About time! Good clean written sentences. Intriguing subject matter. Fun characters i think you did very well leaving it to two books to spark a solid fire . I enjoyed the pace of the story. It moved fluidly and I figured out who submit about a minute before ivy. Well done.

    Too creepy I really tried to like this book, however the characters got in the way. Conversations between all the main characters would never happen in any life, real or fictional. They were weird as well as creepy. Sorry but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone.
