    And this is the point that I am crying ugly tears thinking ‘No, please no, not another Selena story”

    This short story was such a gift!

    If you a diehard fan of the BDB universe and you basically starve during the whole year waiting for another story until December/January (Black Dagger Legacy new book) or April (Black Dagger Brotherhood new book); then a book like Dearest Ivie is the best surprise ever!

    I don’t know if this is an experiment and if it goes well, we may have more unexpected books. BUT I honestly pray to the Scribe Virgin that this will be a successful book (i.e. many mane sales). AND maybe we will have some more. Please.

    On the surface, this is a book that does not add anything to the main BDB storyline. We have two fresh main characters:

    Ivie the girl who likes to laugh and make Silas laugh and

    Silas the glymera guy with the big secret, the big heart and the huge appetite for life.

    And these two are surrounded with many secondary characters really really interesting like Ivie’s biker father and crazy family. Poor but proud.

    And there are some people from the BDB gang as well. I think I will leave this as a surprise.

    And moreover there is Havers’ clinic (because Ivie is a nurse there) and Havers himself who Ward (as she has mentioned numerous times) hates him.

    Well, SO WAS I hahaha

    Is there a change in the air? Or is it just me who thinks this? I think I will pray to the Scribe virgin for a book about lonely Havers (who lost his mate and never ever sleeps because he can never stop working and heal the poor and the rich) as well.

    Anyway, as I was saying, on the surface this book looks like it does not add anything. But I know Ward and I know that every tale she adds to this universe has a meaning.

    So I think I will wait to see how this short story will untangle in the future books.

    If you are new in the BDB universe, don’t worry because this is a perfect standalone.

    And have hope for the ending, because as you may have noticed I am totally enthusiastic about this story and I cry no more!

    DAMN YOU JR WARD!!! Another great read that has me invested into more characters in your world of the black dagger brotherhood!!! Ivie and silas are pure magic together and even the secondary characters are just as interesting and have me already wondering about their stories!!! This book made me laugh and cry and had me pumping my fist in victory.And the hero of this tale is one of my fave characters of the black dagger series,and I'm glad that he had his moment to shine! I can't get enough of

    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.

    Ivie works as a nurse at a healer’s clinic and speaks her mind no matter the consequences. When she meets Silas at a bar, she knows he is above her class yet she is curious and drawn to his charming ways.

    Incredibly attracted to each other, they find a natural connection with Ivie bringing light into his life and Silas offering a steadiness that settles Ivie. Not one to move too quickly in her relationships, Ivie wants to act on her feelings and trust what they have.

    What ensues is a story that hinges upon integrity and digs deep into emotions when the truth is revealed. For a novella, it certainly packed an unexpected punch in the feels department. With a certain plot development, it brings more questions as to Silas’ family and what is to come in future books for a new character in the series.

    is a book about family and being true to yourself. It also shows how much we can sacrifice for loved ones but also not lose hope.

    Like most couples who meet at a bar, this couple is magic. And, bound to stay together forever. Okay, I admit it, I

    met my hubs at a bar. We've been together for almost 30 years now, so I'm assuming that all meet-cute bar things are magic.

    Not that kind of magical! Although.... how much recover time is between these two times? just wondering...

    Ivie and Silas meet at a bar and fall in love almost immediately. Yeah, insta-love, but that's what we get in novellas. It didn't matter, though,

    Ivie and Silas meet at a bar and fall in love almost immediately. Yeah, insta-love, but that's what we get in novellas. It didn't matter, though, because this couple is awesome. They had a bit of the opposites attract thing going. He's rich, she's poor. He's handsome, she's plain. He lives in a mansion with servants, she lives in dumpy apartment and has a biker father. He's cultured, she can burp the alphabet (I'm assuming). A perfect match!

    Yes. This is another couple that I approve of. That bird looks thrilled to be the kids' new pet. I'm sure the kid totally didn't squish it with his giant ape-like hand. No, really, what the hell kid? They been feeding you growth hormones at the farm? Or, is it from all of the hay baling?

    Our couple has a very limited time schedule, and not just because their story has been reduced to a mini-book. Like, thanks a lot JRW! Give tons of time to the nightmare that was Xcor and Layla, but make the adorable couple - you know, the ones who aren't an ugly bad guy and idiot boring chick- have to live out their romance in the time it takes for us to read it while waiting for our Stouffer's frozen lasagna to cook. Seriously, two hours to cook a frozen meal for the fam? I might have actually had time to make something from real ingredients in that time rather than sit on my ass and read for two hours while the hot box did its very slow magic. But, what I lack in cooking skills I make up for in presentation.

    Fancy shmancy, huh?

    How the hell else am I supposed to get all of this reading done? Gotta cut corners somewhere. There's only so much Jilly to go around. You're welcome.

    Anyhoo, so the couple is awesome, but beware, the feels will get ya. Even though I had a pretty strong idea of where things were going - because, let's face it, a moron would catch the clues - it was still a very emotional story. I'm guessing that normal humans would have laughed, cried, and rejoiced while reading this. Normal humans like me, you know, cuz I'm totally one of you. Really. Super normal.

    Third Person

    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 attractions to the refined aristocrat Montasilas (Silas) son of Mordachy was too strong to deny. Unfortunately soon enough she found out their budding romance was going to be cut short. She must decide if Silas was worth the risks.

    I absolutely love Ivie. She was easygoing, funny and verbalized her uncensored thoughts. I also like the relationship she had with her family.

    I'm usually not into proper men/males, but Silas managed to capture my heart because while he was refined, he also knew how to loosen up. Every time he said "Dearest Ivie" I melted a little haha!

    The story was not at all what I expected. It started light and funny, but then it turned serious and heavy. For a novella length story with completely new characters, the author managed to capture the characters' essence and the emotions between them. I was also happy with the intense and scorching sex scenes that made me crave for more.

    Dearest Ivie is an engaging story of taking chances. This standalone novella is set in the Black Dagger Brotherhood world and can be read without reading the series.

    regardless of her insecurities and it paid off.

    , such a gentleman and so dam sexy he treated Ivielike a queen.

    This book was definitely not what I was expecting and I mean that in a good way. It sure packed an emotional punch but then again this is miss

    But the Warden pulled it off! She wrote a beautiful insta-love novella that took me on a major ride that felt longer than 145 pages. I hope we see more of Ivie and Silas. Also I have not liked Havers since he treated his sister like crap, and tried to kill Wrath but I found myself soften to him a little in this book. ["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    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 only complaint I have with this novella is that it was too short!!!

    is a short story set in the

    series, and it stars two brand new characters, that I’m sure will weave their way into the main story now!

    Ivie is a nurse working for Havers, and she and her cousin are in a bar when a vampire walks in who doesn’t look like he necessarily belongs at a human bar. And when Silas walks into the bar, only he knows that he is harboring many secrets.

    And this is a JR Ward book, you know it’s going to have a swoon-worthy romance. JR Ward delivers time and time again, and

    was a great mini installment. And the brother that comes into play at the end of this story? All the tears. My sweet cinnamon roll baby.

    My favorite part of the story was Ivie’s family. Like, where can I sign up to join? BDB is normally set in the city, so I always love the scenes and side stories that are set in the country, just because it’s so different. But everything involving Ivie’s family was a joy to read. I’m honestly in love with her dad.

    But this was a really cute story, that ended up packing such an emotional punch. This is the type of story that makes you never want to take life for granted. The type of story that makes you cherish our short time here, with the ones you love most. The type of story that proves that love can conquer all. The type of story that you won’t forget any time soon.

    Overall, I really enjoyed this. And it made me even more excited to read

    in a week or so! This series, this world, and these characters have meant so much to me throughout the years. And JR Ward just never stops impressing. And hopefully, she will never stop writing as well.

    terminal illness, descriptive medical talk, some girl on girl hate, and a gross suicide joke.
