Ivy is a great lead character—strong, tenacious, intelligent, and bold. I loved reading about her independent personality and her stubborn heart. I enjoyed the enemies to lovers romance trope in this novel. The struggles of Ivy and Jericho make them realistic and allowed me to connect with them well. The author does such a great job of incorporating spiritual truths of forgiveness and trust. And of course the romance was definitely swoon worthy while still being clean. I liked the action and danger in the novel and the book easily kept from attention from start to finish. I enjoyed reading about couples from past novels in this series and although this novel is a complete story on its own, reading the series in order does make it more fun to read about the past characters. A highly recommend read by a talented author!
