Publisher's Summary

My relationship with my husband has been splashed all over the tabloids ever since we first started dating. What should I have expected when I took New York City's most eligible bachelor off the market? 

But no matter how long I'm with my husband, I can't shake the feeling that a stroke of luck brought me here. That I don't deserve the life around me. And I swear, if one more paparazzi takes a picture of me I'm going to freaking lose my mind. 

I needed to prove to myself that I'm not worthless. So I wrote a novel under a pen name, but I've been rejected by so many literary agents I've lost count. And I'm so consumed with this idea that I need more out of life that I never had a chance to see the real story unfolding around me. The story that would threaten the life I took for granted.

HORRIBLE ENDING!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ivy Smoak, you have frustrated me beyond belief!! The book was great. I gave you 4 and 5 stars but OH MY GOD you are terrible with endings. I'm so mad right now I want to tell you that I'll never read another book of yours again but darn it I have to find out what happened. So off to the next book I go. Girl it better be good!

The Light to My Darkness

<strong>The Light to my Darkness </strong>

OMG! And I thought I was done feeling this kind of stress, this kind of unending compulsion to keep reading and finish a book as quickly as possible just to find out what happens next! This author has a way of getting the most out of a scene, chapter, etc. that makes you, the reader, so I vested in these characters that you really just can’t stop reading - chores be damned!
I knew this was a continuation from the first 4 books and I thought that since James and Penny were finally together that they’d have their HEA. Ugh, I was right, but oh so wrong at the same time!! Please, please keep the kiddos in this book alive and safe and keep the thriving and please let Penny and James find their HEA! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Started out slow but got better after every page read.

At first it just tells about James and Penny’s life a few years later, but then she starts having health issues and it gets really good. Well worth a credit.

Shocked

I totally love this continuing story of James and Penny's love story. I love the narrator, but only wish the part of any male characters were a little more masculine. Ivy is the best at continuing their love story it was thrilling to see James and Penny's life continued ❤ to see were the future took them and all of the other characters, to see Mason and Bee get married 😀 The best is that there's more because Ivy can't leave us hanging it ended in a shocking cliffhanger. I'm so excited can't wait to read the next book.

5 shiny stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️I can’t get enough of this series, Follows the Hunted Series,

♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️This is part of a seven book series The first four books started with Temptation, Seduction, Eruption, Devotion in the Hunted Series and then JAMES and Penny’s story really gets wild with the light to my darkness, then a whirlwind of color,
ending with THiS IS LOVE! I’m on the last book now and I stumbled into this series out of order by accident and began with A whirlwind of color, then went searching for the next book because omg it was so good, only to discover I was five books behind and had to start from the beginning and I’m in so deep-but what an interesting way to get the story. It’s been such an amazing ride. The narration is perfect and this story makes you laugh, make you cry, gives you all the feels, thrills, and chills! The twist and turns along the way are always unexpected and leave you gasping. Plus it’s hot. Chemistry is sooo palpable but their journey is so much bigger and better than that. Don’t miss this beautiful love story. All 7 BOOKS of it. All but 2 are available on audible escape.
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽👍🏽

Disappointed

I have read another series of books by this author a little far fetched but enjoyable. When I find an author I enjoy I usually read a lot of what they write. This book however the main character was so whiny all the time that it grated on my nerves and I had stopped reading the book and purchased another book. I came back to the book as I don't like leaving a book unfinished. The book refers to an incident in the past but never gives any detail and the ending well I will leave it up to you but I think the author was looking for an unexpected twist it was that unexpected it was ridiculous. I think I will give this author a break for a while.
