Ivory by Lola Dodge
Series: Manhattan Ten Book #2
Author: Lola Dodge
That cold day in hell? It’s here…If Ivory’s fellow flight attendants whisper that she has ice in her veins, they’d be right. She’s spent years ruthlessly suppressing her dangerous ice powers, pretending she didn’t grow up wild on the tundra. Her legendary coolness has held solid—until a crazed attacker snaps her composure, unleashing her ice beast and blowing her cover. And she’s not sure if the man who defuses the situation is any less dangerous. When Panther’s trans-Atlantic catnap is interrupted by Ivory’s ice spear through his mark’s gut, he doesn’t hesitate to claim her as one of the Manhattan Ten. It’s the only way to shield her from prosecution. It doesn’t hurt that the Nordic beauty puts his inner cat on the prowl. Panther tempts Ivory in every smoldering way, but to let him melt her resistance is a risk she can’t afford. But when her past rises up to claim her, Pan is caught in the crossfire…and the only way to save him is to let the beast claim her, body and soul.
Warning: Contains one smoldering ice vixen and the sexy beast man who wants to get his claws all over her. Make sure your icemaker is in tip-top shape before reading. Mukluks optional.
Review: Ivory was a very intriguing novel with a strong lead female. Panther was immediately captivated by her, and it was easy to see why. The chemistry between them was potent, and it was entertaining how Panther tried to win her over. But it’s not all fun and games – someone is killing the ‘superheroes’ of society….and unfortunately, it may rest closer to Ivory than she thinks.
The rest of the characters that make up the Manhattan Ten were equally interesting, and I can’t wait to read their stories as well. It had the feeling of being a bit ‘choppy’ at times, which sounds odd but that’s the vibe I got from it. The Manhattan Ten series reminds me a bit of the Superlovin’ series by Vivi Andrews, so if you are a fan of that one then you definitely want to give this one a try. Or if you are looking for a superhero themed paranormal series. It was a great read, and I plan on going back and reading Temptress, the first book in this series. And after reading about Tank the mind reader, I can’t wait to pick up Belle Fury in February!
